    An evening of delight!
    , Oct 2021
    Being close up to the performers. They worked effortlessly. We almost seemed a part of the show. The staff was very helpful with our friend who is infirm and using a wheelchair.
    Magical night!
    , Oct 2021
    I'm so glad we booked this last-minute! We've seen nearly a dozen Cirque shows and this one ranks among the top. The dinner was delicious, the show was very entertaining, and the performances were incredible.
    Expected more

    After seeing 15 Cirque du Soleil shows, I was disappointed with this one, my second viewing of Joya. The show was re-worked after the pandemic, and there are many fewer than usual acrobats, and much more "clown" action. The grand finale, however, was great! The meal was well-presented and unusual. The desert presentation, in particular, was fun. The staff were all very helpful. I'll see future Cirque shows, but not this one again.

    Oh my God!!! I don’t even know how to describe it. It was such a wonderful experience!!!!! We got the VIP tickets and it was worth every penny. The show is amazing, everyone is so friendly. It’s a lifetime experience!!!!
    I didn’t understand the story line
    , Aug 2021
    I didn’t understand the story line. They didn’t speak enough English. They were in a library talking about a meteor. At one time I believe they were in the ocean. They tried to up sale more products. The acts were great but don’t know how they tied in w/ everything.
    Have A Heart Viator/Tripadvisor!

    I was ill the morning of the Cirque Show and it took a while for meds to help me feel better. As a result, we would have been an hour late to the event by the time we would have been ready to leave our hotel. Two hours in advance, I called the theater and they told me to call Viator since I made the reservations with them. I called and spoke to several people explaining, begging and pleading to change my reservation to the next show (mine was the early 6pm show) or switch it to the next day. I had flown to Mexico from the U.S. just to see this show. My pleas fell on unsympathetic, deaf ears. Mind you, I was not requesting a refund. I understand policy but, at least you can pretend to be understanding of my situation. Suffice to say, I did not see the show as I was not able to pay another (almost) $400 for two more tickets. I'm very disappointed and would give one star if I could.
    Simple the best
    , Jul 2021
    We loved everything the food the music the show the theater everything was amazing. The food was excellent best food I ever had in a cirque du soleil. The service is as awesome too.
    , Jul 2021
    Definitely worth paying for the full show/dinner/champagne package what an experience the food was incredible and the show was exciting!
    Had a great time
    , Jul 2021
    Very nice venue show was great. Food was original and good. Bar was nice and band at bar and before show were really good. All in all great experience. Would highly recommend.
    A pleasant but underwhelming experience for the money.
    , Jul 2021
    The show was interesting and entertaining. However, I expected more arial performance. Those included were good. The aquatic portion of the show was well done. The visual and performances were very enjoyable. Seeing the musicians perform was a plus. The overall storyline was cute but felt more like entertainment for children.
