Great little beach resort, excellent service from our host Manil(not sure about the spelling). We had our own private little corner with beach bed, lounge chairs and picnic table. Snorkeling was great and reasonable.

I hesitate to write this review as I don't want too many people going to Yaya's when I go back! Seriously though, we researched on line and booked this on our own (not through Carnival) for our stop in Costa Maya. Short trolley ride ($5) from the cruise port to Yaya's in Mahahual Mexico. (You must take a trolley from... More

Absolutely loved this place! We booked a few months in advanced online and asked about the VIP beds (Beds elevated in the air with extra shade) we were easily accommodated for a group of 10 ( 8 adults 2 kids). The service and the food was fantastic! We never had to wait for a drink and Sergio was always RIGHT... More

We loved this place. The food was excellent and the drinks had a little "kick" so fun! You can stay here for the day when you are coming off a cruise ship and they reserve your loungers. We were a party of 9 and we all had daybeds with gret shade. We will definitely come to this place again!

I read great reviews about YayA beach on Trip Advisor and they are normally accurate so I booked online. I was impressed with the response time and they said they were almost booked so they could only offer two sun beds under shade . I said great, I will take it. I arrived and they gave me two blue lounge... More

Went here after touring Chacchoben. The kids were hungry and I was thirsty. We ended up getting nachos for the kids and I tried their "Rum Ponch". The nachos were pretty good and were met with no complaints. The "Rum Ponch" was delicious and I was feeling very good and equally refreshed. Is there any one thing that sets this... More

We had a wonderful day , thanks to Monica, Sergio and Carlos. Nice sun beds with Palapas at the waters edge. Beach was very clean and very clear water. Sergio and Carlos made sure our drinks were never empty. Cost was $35 US for the day and includes open bar. Lunch was excellent and very reasonable. Shrimp tacos at $9... More

We booked this independently of our cruiseline to save some $. We were pleasantly surprised to find them not crowded. "Monica" that seemed to run the place was very gracious, and we had "Sergio" as our waiter who kept good tabs on our needs, and kept the drinks flowing. We had reserved a raised platform beach-bed which was comfy. The... More

Yaya Beach is the newest beach club in Costa Maya, Mahahual. Our goal is to satisfy our customers by offering an unforgettable beach experience. What we call "Yaya day" will be the best memory of your vacation: it's not a regular beach break - our guests just chill at the beach and let us take care of them in our Yaya way. We speak English, Spanish, Italian and our restaurant and bar combine tropical drinks and cocktails, with local seafood and Mexican style dishes, including lobster. Plus, if you want something more than pure relax, the beach club hosts DOCTOR DIVE, the best and safest dive center in Costa Maya for snorkeling, discover scuba diving and boat trips. Moreover we have free wifi, showers, massages and male/female restrooms. Purified water is used for all Yaya food and beverage.
