Concierge.com's insider take:
The Fairmont may be a small step down on the luxury ladder from its neighbors around the pricey Mayakoba development (Rosewood, Mandarin Oriental, Banyan Tree). But the size and the variety of activities on offer make it a great choice for active types and families. Oceanfront casitas have stairways leading to the white sand beach, while most of the 401 expansive rooms and suites are perched over lagoons where croaking cormorants nest in the trees. Electric carts and long wooden lanchas (boats) transport guests between the lobby, a central island with several swimming pools, the beach, and the rooms. There are a wide range of dining options on offer, from the Mexican-inspired fare at La Laguna to the global cuisine of the more formal Las Brisas, which has live jazz nightly. The Willow Stream Spa overlooks the tropical forest canopy.
