Best Resort

People were very helpful & friendly. A very nice hotel for a family to stay & relax. Highly recommended to all!!! Big pools, kids pool, beaches, malls, 5 resorts, casino, mini golf, bowling etc are all in one resort that everyone can enjoy. If you're looking for cenote & other adventures there's a place just across the resort. Tulum is about 25miles away that you can just take the public shuttle to save money from expensive private excursion. Playa del Carmen is about 15mins away from the resort. Fresh seafood is the bomb! Free tequila tasting were excellent. I will definitely stay again at Barcelo.

Second trip here...will return

This was our second trip to this resort. We have stayed at 3 other properties since our first trip but enjoyed Barcelo the best. Booked restaurants upon arriving and even changed one later with no problems. Japanese, Seafood and Steak house were all excellent. No problems with check in or departure. Room was spotless and well maintained during stay, bed comfortable and A/C was great. Grounds are kept immaculate and beach is nice. Hundreds of chairs and several areas to swim without so many rocks. Wear water shoes and have no problems. Saw more fish and turtles than in Akumal. Last few trips to Riviera Maya we have been using the Collectivo to get around. Easy travel to Playa, Tulum or Akumal for a few dollars per person. Use pesos for best rates when shopping or transportation. Overall, excellent accommodations, food, service and things to do. Would not hesitate to recommend or return here myself. Great trip.

Barcelo tropical

When we checked in the lady at check in desk didnt explain everything and was not helpful. She then said they gave us double beds and there was nothing she could do, and hopefully upgrade us the next day to a king bed. we had to wait til the next day to upgrade. She then told us that it's not even a guarantee even if you put it in the special requests when we originally booked our vacation. However, the property was beautiful and pools were amazing so close to the beach. Also had a nice variety of food and Spanish selection as well.

What's to Love

The epitome of relaxation, Barcelo Maya Colonial and Tropical Beach is surrounded by a tropical rainforest and 1.12 miles of white sand beach and blue Caribbean surf.

 

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

With Tulum, Xcaret and Xel-Ha less than 20 minutes away and a private beach just steps from Barcelo Maya Tropical & Colonial, there's something here for everyone.
