Fantastic Experience

  • 5 of 5
Surpassed all our expectations. What an amazing property. We held a multi generational family reunion at Taninah and couldn't have picked a better place. Amazing staff, great food, exotic location and best of all...there were plenty of amenities and activities for everyone to enjoy without even having to leave the property. Spectacular beach close by as were all the Riviera Maya's attractions.

Mulit-generational family returns for fourth year

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our fourth multi-generational family vacation at Taninah so tanned and relaxed we can hardly write the review! Imagine waking up in a private jungle villa to the sound of wild parrots, taking a morning swim in the fresh water cenote (cave with stalagmites and stalactites), and then walking to the outdoor kitchen for fresh squeezed orange juice, Mexican coffee and a full breakfast. Between the delicious Mexican/Mayan meals, you can swim in the pool, soak in the hot tub, walk on the jungle path or play miniature golf. There is also a game room, library, gym, basketball court, zip line, and in ground trampoline, and it is all for just your family.

My teenagers loved the water slide, ping pong and pool tables, the trips to adventure parks and beaches, and the in-home theatre. My sister’s younger kids couldn’t get enough of the jungle gyms, board games, air hockey, and playing soccer with the staff. Meanwhile, my parents loved lying in the hammocks, reading by the pool and taking long walks. For me, the magic was having all the meals, chores and planning taken care of, so that every day stretched in front of me with the question “What do I feel like doing today?”.

If you are considering a vacation at Taninah – just do it. It is a one of a kind opportunity for privacy, adventure and fun. At night, after the staff has turned down your beds and the kids are asleep, walk outside, look up into millions of stars and hear the night sounds of the jungle. I guarantee you will know you made the right choice.
