Hi, I am an erstwhile traveler through the Yucatan with nothing but my backpack and a hammock-- not as lovely as this one but still have and Love and treasure. Mayan hammocks pose a challenge intially to many of us because there is no bar...but this cocoon like capability is what makes them safe for one or more to sleep in!These are hammocks which are meant to billow up around you so you are secure and can suspend a few feet in the air safely even if you are a kickboxing sleeper!as well, the hammocks are luxurious for relaxing and reading or even cuddling ...although i do not recommend cuddling with a pet unless very calm because my dogs and cats can claw when climbing.anyway if you are open to experiencing a WONDERFUL level of relaxation and comfort from a hammock that is atraditional for USa but an ancient bed style in the Yucatan, you may just wish as i do, to put these inside the house,on the porch, and in the garden for year round remarkably restorative resting!

I have slept in and had many mayan hammocks. This one lives up to my expectation for comfort and the color is lovely but it was a little less wide than I expected. The price was very good. A good value..

I bought 2 Mayan Hammock chairs and then my brother-in-law didn't want to put eyebolts in the soffit or fascia or ceiling which, fair enough, it's a lovely basswood ceiling with Douglas Fir beams. Anyway, these stands were a great buy - we've been using them for a year now - my niece in particular likes to set up the hammock in different locations - sometimes in the loft, or on the deck or down by the water. Just one warning - the stand will collapse if you kick repeatedly at one of the legs to make yourself swing wildly - luckily my niece wasn't hurt either of the times she did this but you should definitely supervise younger children.

My family recently vacationed and visited the Mayan Ruins. We saw these beautiful hammocks and instantly wanted one. This hammock is large, sturdy and easy to get in and out. Unlike solid fabric hammocks, it wraps around you as you relax. My husband sleeps in it, just like the Mayans did. The color is dark green and not blue/green as shown in the picture, but that is not a problem. If I had room to hang another I would certainly buy a second!

I had bought a large mayan hammock and this stand fits the hammock perfectly. The assembly instructions are poorly worded and make it sound way more complicated to put together than it is. My sister and I put it together in about 2 minutes. We didn't have any chain, but the large hammock fits on the supplied hooks. No problem supporting the weight of two adults.

I haven't purchased this from Overstock yet, but was in Mexico this winter visiting the Mayan ruins and saw these for sale at $100. I've so regretted not buying one but now that I see them here I'm hinting to my husband for my birthday. At any rate, now I'm glad I didn't have to tote it back on a cruise ship and plane.

I was so excited about this hammock when I first got it. It was silky, pretty, and large. My enthusiasm soon turned into puzzlement while trying out how to lay in it properly. Mayan hammocks don't have spreader bars, so they suggest that you recline in them on a diagonal. I have been in other Mayan hammocks before that made getting comfortable a no-brainer, but that was not the case here. When I finally settled for being moderately comfortable (but not comfortable enough to fall asleep!), I enjoyed my afternoons of cloud watcing for a couple of months before the hammock started to completely disintegrate. The fine silky cord did not hold up well at all, and I live in Los Angeles where it rarely rains. The morning dew combined with hours in the sun baked the threat into crusty crumbly bits. I now need another hammock and definitely will not consider buying this kind again. I am limited in my new search to non-spreader bar hammocks, as I had to buy that kind of stand for this Novica hammock.

Excellent price for such a large hammock, 450 pound capacity is HUGE for anything under $100 and handwoven nylon is very durable...if kept out of direct sunlight, will last for several seasons at least! We are looking forward to teaching our little one how to climb in/out of a Mayan hammock. They look more difficult but are really so much easier and more comfortable to relax in than a traditional "bar" hammock. My husband will love this for his father's day gift (and gee darn, I'll have to use it too...)
