Contemporary and fresh seaside resort
Hidden behind the rice paddies and vineyards (yes grapes) near Seririt, Mayo Resort is an intimate boutique resort offering vast sea-view rooms plus a couple of larger family rooms on a private corner of coast.
A large double-storey block overlooking the swimming pool and sea houses the hotel-style rooms, with the family rooms and villas in separate structures. A palette of turquoise, white and warm grey is repeated everywhere from the pool to the restaurant — it’s contemporary and fresh and a bit quirky. Well appointed, bright and airy air-con rooms continue the colour scheme, with comfortable whitewashed furnishings and standard resort amenities. Ensuite bathrooms are spacious and spotless. Wide balconies or terraces offer the full-frontal seaside panorama.
Grassy and palm-tree-dotted grounds surround the good-sized seafront pool with plenty of shady sun lounges and bales for relaxing. The smart contemporary restaurant has a Mediterranean feel — perhaps it’s that colour scheme again? — and an extensive menu of local and international dishes. The bar can whip up a cocktail for poolside sipping while you unwind in a ringside seat for the sunset. Rates include breakfast and free WiFI. Mayo resort offers spa treatments, tours and can organise snorkelling and divining. The resort’s a little out of the way, but they are happy to transport guests around the local area. Staff are friendly and keen to please. We liked the intimacy of this small smart resort which was surprisingly empty when we visited. Check online for deals.
