I’ve lived here for 2 years, and this is definitely one of my favorite places by far. The food is so good, the staff is lovely, and the view is breathtaking.

I’ve literally made this place my office 5 days a week. You can sit and eat under the palapa, jump in the pool, lounge overlooking the ocean, walk down to the sea in 1 minute – the sunsets from here are amazing – it’s quiet and chill. It’s such a perfect little paradise away – exactly what a vacation vibe should be like.

If I were visiting, I’d stay here for sure – affordable and high quality and being able to have this million-dollar view every day is what anyone should want.

The Staff/Service was Great, friendly, and helpful all the time. Helped with any information we needed on the island. Great value for the money. Beautiful hotel with lovely little touches to make you feel comfortable.

La Joya was incredibly welcoming and cozy! We arrived extremely early for check-in, 8 hours to be exact, they accommodated all 17 of us and helped us check in soon! The hotel was only a 13-minute walk from the bus station, and they helped us find a tour guide for our trek.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 days and were so sad to leave. All of the staff is simply amazing with their mayan riviera fishing suggestions, they treat you like royalty, they help you with everything need and even anticipates your needs. It honestly was like staying with family, they make you feel so welcomed, and like you are their only guest.

This is now our favorite place to stay and will definitely go back as soon as we are able. It is a pretty place, with a small beach to wander and comfortable. There are a lot of stairs, so if that is a problem, maybe they could put you up higher. Skip the big resort and enjoy tranquility at La Joya!
