After writing up our site-inspection report for Andaz Mayakoba, we really wanted to dive in to the dining options on property. One of the greatest things about the Mayakoba Complex is that guests can enjoy benefits, such as dining and spa, at all of the four hotels within the complex. This really opens up your options and creates a boutique hotel experience with the benefits of a large resort; hop in a Mayakoba shuttle vehicle to venture out for a nice evening but still retain the comfort of being close to your home base.
No matter which of the Mayakoba hotels you choose to call home for your vacation, you must make time to experience the Andaz Mayakoba dining options! There are four restaurants on property; two on the Lagoon Side of the resort and two right next to the Beach Side Pool.
Cocina Milagro – Start each day at Andaz Mayakoba with a buffet style breakfast on the Lagoon Side of the resort, including both local and international options. The restaurant is located just next to the Lagoon Side pool, so come prepared to do some swimming after breakfast! Be sure to save space for desert – the french toast bread pudding can’t be beat!
OllaCeviche – We enjoyed our first dinner at the resort here with a private tequila tasting. The restaurant is poolside and beachside with a relaxed atmosphere, perfect for a casual dinner after a day at the pool or a cocktail to complete your evening. The ceviche is superb, we honestly couldn’t choose just one to recommend!
OllaTaco – OllaTaco is adjacent to OllaCeviche by the Beach Side pool, and offers a great casual setting to enjoy a leisurely meal after some quality beach time. They offer a la carte breakfast, as well as lunch and dinner. As the name would suggest, their specialty is their tacos! The crunchy octopus taco was definitely the group’s favorite.
Casa Amate – The ultimate dining highlight during our visit was the amazing Casa Amate. We saved the best for our finale dinner and we were not disappointed! Imagine attending a dinner party at the home of a well-traveled friend; a comfortable setting, interesting conversation, and unique decor help you feel at ease and entertained. Now add in a globally trained chef, talented bartenders, and polished service and you have the Casa Amate experience in a nutshell. The diverse menu features authentic Mexican dishes along with some unique items inspired by South American cooking and feature seafood, red meat, and an impressive selection of vegetarian options.
