Lunch and Sun at Sands Banyan Tree Mayakoba

We visited as a guest of the venue

Entrance to Banyan Tree

One of the highlights of our trip to Mayakoba was taking the complimentary Mayakoba shuttle over to Banyan Tree Resort to have lunch at Sands. Sands Restaurant is located at the Banyan Tree beach club and offers guests beautiful views of the turquoise waters and sandy white beach.

When we arrived at the restaurant, we first spent some time at the beach club. The staff helped to set-up towels for us by the pool, and we relaxed on the lounge chairs while listening to the crashing ocean waves. We splashed in the water, took a short walk along the beach and then while we were resting in our lounge chairs. Suddenly, we heard the sound of someone blowing a conch shell.

We jumped up out of our chairs to see what the excitement was about and noticed that they had just brought in a fresh catch of fish for the day. The chef proudly displayed the day’s fresh catch and invited guests to select a fish to be prepared for their lunch.

My daughter picked out her favorite fish and ordered it to arrive at our table ceviche style. So, we put on our swim cover-up and entered the restaurant for lunch. My daughter ordered a smoothie, I had a glass of wine, and we savored every minute of spending quality time together at such a beautiful place.
