Fabulous Vacation!

We stayed at the Tropical for 7 days and had an awesome experience! The resort is spotless to say the least! The rooms, restaurants and grounds were all maintained beautifully! The buffet had plenty of options to please everyone. The specialty restaurants were very good as well. Food options are limited at these so be sure to look at the menu before making your decisions. Also, drinks are not included at most of these restaurants with the exception of house wine and beer. They should be more forthcoming with that information. There are many options for activities such as kayaks, catamarans and water tricycles. We did not have the opportunity to use these until the last day due to choppy waters. If you do get the opportunity to take these out, you must go down to activity desk for a lesson at 8:30 am. This information was not readily available and would have been helpful to know ahead of time. Despite those small issues, we had a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend this resort! My biggest piece of advise...Wear sunscreen!

Best Vacation Ever

Best Vacation for my family. I took my girls and their boyfriends for a week. the resort was immaculately clean. The food was incredible all over the resort. Lots of choices and freshly prepared. all employees were friendly and went above and beyond at all times. one of our rooms was flooded from the bathroom above ours. we were packed and moved to another room within 30 minutes with the help of the house keeper, maintenance man and the bell boy. We couldn't have been treated better. we will be back.

Great place for a family vacation

The resort was BEAUTIFUL! The pools were great, the beach was pretty, but the water had too many rocks in it:( Great food every day, the rooms weren't anything fancy, but they were comfortable and loved that they had a ceiling fan. We never left this resort - there is so much to do and there is a bus that will take you from hotel to hotel (3 hotels w/in the resort). The kids swam with dolpins, played mini gold, bowled and the adults tried out the casino and the disco!

August 19, 2016

My daughter and I just got back from barcelo maya tropical resort on 8/12/16.we were only there for 4 nights. a lot of amenities .a lot of activities to do. Overall everything was fine except they absolutely lie on online when they say it is a 40 min commute .IT IS SO NOT TRUE. IT IS 1HR AND 15 min OF COMMUTE ,now thank god there was no traffic. so that was a disappointment to all of us because I would have prepared myself better knowing the truth. other than the commute we had a problem with our 1st floor room where I did not like it ,it had a smell and the bathroom it is a little outdated but we had mentioned it the first day we got there and so they were able to accommodate us on the next day to the 2nd floor and everything was much better .much cleaner and it did not smell. the staff at the restaurants ,pool bars and reception were nice and courteous. however one supervisor MS. CAROLINA RAMIREZ was supposed to handle my bathroom situation and call me back with 5 min and let me know the outcome and when someone will come to look at my tub and she absolutely did not follow thru on that . I called and called and called nobody would pick up at reception and so I had to walk there to find out the status ,just to find out that MS RAMIREZ THESUPERVISOR WENT TO LUNCH AT 9 PM. I WAS FUMMING .the other people a t the reception were able to get someone else to come look at the tub. next time I will go to cancun where it is so much closer from the airport

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.

Barcelo Maya Colonial and Tropical Beach: Discover the Ancient Remedies and Modern Luxuries

With a tropical rainforest on three sides and more than 1.12 miles of private white sand beach on the fourth side, the all-inclusive Barcelo Maya Colonial and Tropical Beach offers you the opportunity to truly get away from it all. The private shores of the resort's beach beckons sun lovers with enticing complimentary loungers and towels.
