Resort was extremely crowded. Lots of under aged teenagers drinking. Waited for hours to make restaurant reservation and they were unable to accommodate our group of 16 anywhere the entire week.

Really happy

This was a great experience and really relaxing vacation. The only down fall I would say is if you've never been it's really overwhelming on the first day. When we checked it alot of information was thrown at you and wasn't explained very well. So we had to take most of the first day figuring it all out on our own. Other then that everything was AMAZING!!!

What's to Love

A tropical rainforest surrounds the resort with over a mile of a private, white sandy beach.

Resort is mega-sized of fun - you have access to Barcelo Maya Beach and Barcelo Maya Caribe.

The swim-up bars at the pools will likely be your favorite go-to bars during the day.

Lively entertainment at night - theatrical shows and live music keep the party going.

Activities like an 18-hole mini golf, 4-lane bowling alley and video games at Strikers.

 

What We'd Change

The 40-minute trek from the airport is a bit much, but the pools, kid's club and water park for kids up to age 12 more than make up for it.

 

Why You Should Go

Located in Riviera Maya, you're just forty miles from the airport. A fruity cocktail awaits you.

Pack your water shoes - so many bright colored fish and turtles to see in the ocean.

The fitness center is modern and updated with the latest equipment.

The Dolphinarium is just off the beach and includes acrobatics + dolphins.

You can take a public shuttle to Tulum, Akumal or Playa del Carmen - it's cheap & fun exploring.

Hotel Description

Barcelo Maya Colonial & Tropical - All-Inclusive: Fam-tastic in the Riviera Maya

The resort's impressive landscapes with a rain forest on three sides and over a mile of a private beach out back make this an epic paradise. Just a few sandy steps from the beach are shimmering blue pools where you'll easily find a lounge chair and a cocktail, of course. Head to the water park for slides, splash pads and the coolest thing ever - a surf pool. The family is bound to fall in love you a little bit more when their flip flops hit the deck at this palatial escape.

Guests may enjoy dinner at the specialty restaurants using tickets, based on the length of their stay:

  • 3 nights, 2 tickets
  • 4-6 nights, 2 tickets
  • 7 nights, 4 tickets
  • 8-10 nights, 5 tickets

DINING

The buffet is filled with a variety of flavors, where you can nosh comfortably indoors (with a chillin' A/C). For sea breezes, the grill just off the beach is a casual spot for leisurely lunches or early dinners. For those seeking something more formal, you'll want to reserve a table at the Japanese, Italian or steakhouse restaurants. It's stay at one, play at four, so you might as well dig in.
