Worth the Money

I will spend time writing a review because these are how I base my selections of vacation destinations. My boyfriend and I (approx age 30s) spent Aug 6-11th at Barcelo Maya Palace through CheapCaribbean with back and forth transportation through Amstar. We had no issues with any part of travel and check in/out was a breeze. I was extremely impressed at how clean the resort was - staff was constantly seen cleaning the premises and maintenance workers completing ground work. This resort has more of a relaxing atmosphere, not one I would recommend for party-lookers. And definitely is family friendly with many children like activities and water parks. My favorite spot was the adult only pool - bar had no wait, plenty of space on lounge chairs and it was calm and quiet. There are four (I think) separate Resorts - Tropical, Maya, Caribe, and one other, located on the property. You are able to use all amenities at each resort. I found some buffets better than others but the food was very repetitive. Breakfast had the best and most options. I would absolutely take advantage of your a la carte dinners at the restaurants - Steak house Santa Fe was to die for! (besides the waiter trying to hard sell me an expensive bottle of wine) As for the all inclusive drinks - it was hard to catch a buzz for me - liquor was weak and drinks were not that appetizing, and based on the "tainted liquor" scare in Mexico days prior, my options were limited. I would almost recommend buying a bottle at duty free just to make sure you have a top shelf option. Beaches were nice and spacious, but the water was filled with algae and pretty rocky along the beach line. There were also no bars on/along the beach - so don't expect to drink on the beach unless you want to make countess trips to poolside bar. There are plenty of shows, activities, and excursions to keep you busy but not a clear schedule of where and when. Pools weren't too crowded, but could have used some more entertainment, such as on going music throughout the day. A shuttle runs from each resort but makes many stops and can get very crowded - I recommend walking if possible. Overall, I was very happy with my trip, wish we stayed another two days. I would stay at another Barcelo resort in the future, but preferably at another destination - Mexico is very laid back and I need a little more excitement for my age group.

Barcelo Maya Palace Deluxe

Everything about the resort was great except the location of the rooms. I had the last room in the resort and booked almost a year in advance for 10 people and 3 rooms. They don't give any consideration to that fact or the age of the people going.

Best Family Vacation!

The resort rooms were very spacious, clean and comfortable! The resort itself was gorgeous! Many pretty fountains and trees and nature, we loved it! The resort is very big, so expect walking- they do have shuttles if you want to go to other resorts or the Maya Mall. The pools and beaches were clean and so nice. The staff and service was phenomenal! Every employee we came into contact with was exceptional! the food was outstanding- especially the reservation dinners including Brasserie, Caribe, Rozidio, and the seafood restaurants! We did two excursions and booked through the hotel and they were extremely fun!! I definitely recommend the Cancun Adventures Outdoor Adventures which includes riding UTVs through the jungle, repelling, zip lining and snorkeling! The resort itself has some evening shows, daytime aerobic classes, a really nice dolphin show and many non-motorized and motorized water sports! I felt very safe on the resort (be careful outside the resorts)! I look forward to my next trip there!!!!

Amazing Experience

We had an AMAZING time at Barceló Maya Palace Resort. The food was delicious. My picky kids loved the variety and especially the desserts. I would highly recommend going to the Rodizio and Brasseire restaurants. The service and food there was excellent. The snorkeling was great. We even saw a turtle! We really don't use the pools when on vacation but we went into this pool at least 3 times! The resort was spotless as was our room. We loved this resort and will most definitely go back. I highly recommend staying here.

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.
