mostly great

I have been here several times so it was no surprise that it was still great. The only real problem I encountered is that Cheapcaribean purchased the United Airline tickets using their credit card and this made it difficult to get the benefits that I get from my card. I.e. free luggage, premiere status, etc...

mostly great

Barcelo Maya Palace

We enjoyed our time at the resort as a family. The pools were great and the resort was well maintained. The wait staff for dining was great. The amenities and scenery are awesome. I would not recommend the "upgrade" to the palace. My experience was the service was no different from the other options within that resort. I found the service at the front desk to be extremely slow and almost disrespectful on multiple occasions. We asked for adjoining rooms as we were traveling with 4 children from 12-15. They gave us 2 rooms that had 1 room in between and we had to beg to get connecting rooms even though we requested this through the reservation - this is something that is unacceptable to me - they knew the age of the 4 children and the 2 adults - how can they not understand we wouldn't want to be connected, especially since the resort was not at capacity and they had the room availability. We had to wait in line at check in for almost an hour and 1 time my room keys stopped working and it took standing in line another hour just to have them replaced. The food was average. The beer was luke warm. It was hard to find out what was going on at the resort throughout the day. In all, we enjoyed our time, but I would not go back as I would like to try other resorts.

Great family vacation

We had a fabulous week long vacation at Barcelo Palace. We really enjoyed the selections of dining in the evenings and the buffets for breakfast and lunch were very good. Service in the rooms and dining were fantastic. The least helpful was the front desk who seemed slow and unhelpful on multiple occasions so when you need something here be prepared to wait. A few things to know about this resort: Pay attention to times all dining is not available at all times and you will miss cool activities if you don't read ahead for times Make your dinner reservations as soon as possible The beach is sandy however there are a lot of rocks in the water that are hard on the feet especially for little kiddos We only left the resort twice during the week due to the number of things to do on property, both outings were great. The valet was helpful in getting us a taxi and letting us know the costs up front. One of the highlights of our trip was snorkeling with the sea turtles who frequent the beach just in front of our resort, so bring your snorkel gear! We had a 4 and 6 year old with us and the kids club was a great opportunity for our kids to have fun out of the sun during the week. Overall I would definitely consider this resort again for a family vacation!

Wonderful Resort

We had an amazing experience at the Barcelo Maya Resort. It is a beautiful place with great service and staff. Everything is very clean and maintained beautifully. There are a lot of pools to choose from and it wasn't too crowded. The beach is wonderful!

What's to Love

The all-inclusiveness & all-aah-mazingness of everything.

Chillaxing & living large with an umbrella drink in the padded in-pool loungers.

The anxiety-ousting spa with the flotation tank, Swiss shower & reflexology.

The Kids Club that has wave after wave of fun & a buffet for your beach munchkins.

 

What We'd Change

Without a door separating the shower from the dressing area in the suite, you may have to learn to share bathroom time wisely or risk getting wet.

 

Why You Should Go

It's 47 miles south of the airport - just enough time to unwind before you hit Beach Eden.

Don't miss the Dolphinarium, where you can shake fins with these friendly, smiling critters.

For splashy fun, there's windsurfing & water trikes. For less water, try mini-golf.

There's tennis, beach volleyball & a fitness center - or a pool table if you just want to hang.
