Good job

Cheap Caribbean price was good. Transfer were great. Airline awful, delayed luggage lost a day in a he sun...flights changed several times over reservation and we were split from our original group. Not sure about feelings of booking again.

Our first getaway

This was my bf & I’s getaway. We’ve never been to Mexico and didn’t know what to expect. We booked a private shuttle to and from the Cancun airport to the hotel with USA Transfers. We 100% recommebd’ They were so easy to find when getting out of the airport & they are so nice!! The Barcelo Maya Colonial & Tropical resort is a huge beautiful resort! I would absolutely recommend to anyone!! We are 30 years old & it wasn’t full of kids & wasn’t overcrowded. The food was amazing & it was the most beautiful place I’ve ever been to! The resort is huge!!! So much to do and the pools are so warm. The ocean is also really nice! They have jetskis, scuba diving and any other water sport! I would go back in a heartbeat! We will be back! The resort is also like approx 1 hr from the Cancun airport but the shuttle goes by really quick because there is so much to look at. We loved it & recommended this place to our family & friends! Most beautiful place ever!!!!! Pick this place, you won’t be disappointed! We stayed 4 nights 5 days and they gave us 2 high end restaurant meal tickets, We recommend booking those restaurants early when you get there!

high school spring break trip

I have been to many all inclusives in the riveria maya area. Barceló is a beautiful resort with well maintained grounds. They have an amazing spa area and many pool areas for kids and adults. Unfortunately, compared to other resorts we have been too the service is lacking. The food, besides breakfast, was terrible and the beds were uncomfortable. Reservations were nearly impossible to make for an entire week. We were unable to eat with our entire party of only 6 people because the restaurants were full for all 7 nights we were visiting. I would not go back to this resort. Barceló caters to the spring breakers...I understand the headaches associated with that, however, the service needs to be better.

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 45 mile 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 that hugs the clear, turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea make this an epic paradise. If that's not enough, their overarching concept - stay at one, play at five - will blow your beach hair back. Just a few sandy steps from the beach are shimmering blue pools - 10 in the complex - where you'll easily find a lounge chair and a cocktail, of course. Head to one of the three water park for slides, splash pads and the coolest thing ever - a surf pool. Before you leave the 24-hour, all-inclusiveness of this escape haven, make sure you hit the 33,000-square-foot U-Spa for a stress-smashing treatment. The family is bound to fall in love with 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, 1 tickets
  • 4-5 nights, 2 tickets
  • 7 nights, 4 tickets
  • 8 nights, 5 tickets
  • 9-10 nights, 7 tickets
  • 11-12 nights, 8 tickets
  • 13 nights, 9 tickets
  • 14 nights, 10 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.
