I can't say anything but WOW! What an experience! I splurged on the VIP Champagne Dinner for my BF's birthday and couldn't have bought anything more spectacular! He was and I was too so impressed by our VIP treatment! I have been to other Cirque shows and I knew the show would be amazing, but I couldn't believe how impressive the food was at this venue. Truly first class! Thank you

Great experience of sight and sound. After splashing around in the ocean, this was a refreshing evening. I didn't do any of the dinner options, still had a nice seat. Enjoyable experience for my data and I.

The show itself was absolutely incredible, which is a lot for me to say since I'm not really into Cirque shows. All of the performers were AMAZING! We did the premium seats with wine note: you only get half a bottle per person which is a little dissapointing and appetizers, which were all very good. The show itself was a little hard to follow and I'm not sure that I ever got exactly what the plot was, but it was great nonetheless. Not sure I would do the transportation again because we had to take a cab to Playacar Mall and get dropped off there after the show, which was much farther away than I originally thought. I would definitely go see the show again, but the transportation is probably more of a hassle than its worth....

Speechless, this was very entertaining especially on a night when you just want to semi relax. Get there early, not like us arriving 10 minutes before the show starts........which was the multiple shots of drinks at the Artisan All-Inclusive hotel we stayed at. The show starts promptly on time and the hour and half running time flew by making you want to see more of it..........AWESOME Show

I am not a big Cirque di Soleil fan but this venue is beautiful and the show was entertaining. The food presentation and service was great. The food was good but it was really about the presentation. The champagne was better than I expected and served nicely chilled.

Joya was an amazing show - it delivered such an unforgettable array of scenes and actions that we'll be talking about it for months now. Since we've been back home we have raved about this show continuously. We are incredibly glad we went!

What a great show. We have been to many Cirques and this one was every bit as good as the ones in Vegas. The dinner was fun and delicious. Every thing had a bit of whimsy about it. My only complaint is with Viator themselves. We had called Joya about ten days before our arrival to confirm the transportation. Joya had no record of our reservation. I called Viator and they said that the dinner was not available for the night we chose. We luckily had another night free. If it had not been for us calling Joya, we would never have known because we got nothing from Viator. No email, phone call nothing. My advice is to double check your booking with the venue before you leave.

EXCELLENT!! Truly enjoyed the show, there is no bad seat in the house, the small theater was built just for Joya. We have seen many Cirque shows in Vegas, Orlando and back home and this was one of the best. A small intimate setting with amazing performances. Highly recommend catching this if you are in the Playa del Carmen area.

I attended Joya show on March 4th -2015 and after seeing Kooza in London i must say I do prefer Joya, perhaps for me it was easier to understand the spanish and english content of the show hence i enjoyed it to the maximum... it was a shame that it is only 1h 20min show but over all best cirqus de solei by far.
Thank you

The show was absolutely amazing and I would highly recommend it. The only thing I was extremely disappointed in was our transfer back to Playacar left with out us. We were about 3 minutes late getting to the bus but only because we got turned around and went to the wrong parking area. The funny thing was we waited for 10 minutes for him to pick us up. To be honest I think it is a scam that these drivers have with the taxi drivers as they had a cab sitting waiting for us conveniently to take us to our hotel which was not cheap but you have no choice.

Joya was really great! I only wished to driver would of been on time.We had to wait in the rain for an hour and when we got there we had to rush to our seats with only 5min to spare.

Me and my husband enjoyed the show. We didn't get a chance to participate in the dinner but the seats were great. A nice ending to an eventful day.

Probably expected more that we got. Show is really short, but it is an OK show. Nothing WOW that I would say you have to see it. Now what I did NOT like was purchasing the transportation package because you have to travel to town in order to get taken to the show in my case it was further to travel to town than to take a taxi directly to show. So I lost out on the transportation portion on this.

After directly confirming the details of the reservation via phone with an authorized sales agent, we purchased the show tickets with round trip bus transportation. We were advised to be at the bus stop 30 minutes prior to departure. THE BUS ARRIVED 45 MINUTES LATE. Upon arrival, the agent who checked the list of passengers informed us that the bus would return by 9pm at the pick-up location after the show. WE MISSED 30 MINUTES OF THE SHOW by the time we arrived at the ticket counter for admission. At the end of the show, we searched for the bus, and we were told that the bus would not be there for another 30 minutes. We had specifically checked with a booking agent on the phone as well as the agent who checked us into the bus that we return in time to the pickup location in Cancun. We had taken a ferry from Cozumel to come see the show, and the last ferry for the night departed at 10pm. EVEN THOUGH WE HAD PAID FOR TRANSPORTATION, we had to take a taxi from the show back to Cancun so we would not miss our ferry back to the hotel in Cozumel. The taxi ride cost an additional 40 to us.
