Not Bad Had Better. I may need Lower Expectations

In 2017 we visited Barcelo Rivera Maya Beach & Caribe. We traveled with out 19year old son and his girlfriend. We upgraded to a swim up room w Premium Service. It was an amazing trip. We arrived early our room was ready, received a $200 spa credit, had several restaurants to chose from , the food was great everywhere even the breakfast buffet, we received turn down service every night and the staff was so polite and accommodating. We thought for sure that this would be the same experience just on a smaller scale, not so much. We decided to travel together again and stay with barcelo since we had such an amazing time last year. When we arrived about we had to wait about an hour before our room. We decided to grab a bite at the buffet, it was less than satisfying. Thought we’d try the lobby bar where we found the bar tender not so friendly. After getting to our room it just didn’t feel clean. There were only two towels no beach towels ( which are suppose to be there with your premium serivce ) and stains on the floor. We had reservations for the sushi restaurant that evening, it was mediocre at best. The fried rice was the best thing on the menu. The following day we decided to lounge at the pool all day. We chose the infinity pool. The water was low and not flowing over the side like it should. Additionally the beach vendors come up to you while in the pool and try to sell you things. It’s very annoying. None the less we did enjoy laying by the pool. The staff at the pool was amazing and the snacks at the pool were good. They are your typical finger foods ( tacos pizza, onion rings burgers etc ) The pool staff does a great job getting everyone engaged with games and hanging out together to have fun. Not much to do as far as night light on this resort. The “shows” were not very entertaining. We say a single guy playing a guitar one night and another night they had karaoke which was entertaining. LoL. The most disappoint part to me is that part of the resort is under construction. One of the dining areas where you can sit and have your coffee in the morning and watch the waves come in was not accessible. Had I know this resort was under construction we would have consuanothwe resort. Additionally while you are at the pool trying to relax you hear construction noise in the background. We only received turn down service two of the five nights we were there and had to call everyday to have them bring our beach towels for the next day. This just was not the experience we had in Rivera Maya. Although it wasn’t terrible we were hoping for something close to it. If you are looking for a basic resort to chill and lay by the pool then this will do for you.

Restaurant Servers will take care you anyway w/out cash for tipping, so you better tip them because them will know you. The swimming pool is kind annoy having people around you playing their own music loudly. Dinning, there is only one restaurant choice per night. About the room, housekeeping missed the hand towels except for the first night. Entertainment super poor!!! like Karoke!!!! Cheers for the ladies who sits you in the dining room, very welcomed and charmed.

Never again

I was very disappointed with the lack of customer service from the front desk, concierge, and shuttle service department. It was impossible to swim in the ocean. Poolside games were moderate. The equipment was completely out of date, they did not even have a clean volleyball to play pool volleyball with it was all torn up. When we asked for another one they said they didn’t have it. Poolside drinks service was average. The buffet had the same meals daily, it was kind of tiring to eat the same things every day morning noon and night. I will not ever stay at the Barcelo resort again.

What's to Love

It's all-inclusive, all-fam-bam-friendly and all-Caboliscious.

Private balconies that have spectacular views of the dreamy blue Sea of Cortez.

The Deep Blue Spa. Hydrotherapy and marine-based treatments. Meltaliscious.

The signature cocktail menu - it's creative and crafty and we love it.

From the front desk to the bartenders, the customer service is sunsational.

 

What We'd Change

There's not a lot of seating at the beach, but the sand is so powdery and the water so crystalline blue, furniture would probably just get in the way.

 

Why You Should Go

It's just a zippy 15 minutes from the airport. Cocktail time is so near you can taste it.

Kids' Club ages 4-11 has puppet theater, videogames & more. Your munchkins will love it.

The snack bar serves up delish snacks all day long. Lotsa good grazing.

There are wave runners for splash-worthy fun & a fitness center for calorie-burning.

You can tee off at three swingin' golf courses that aren't too far away.

But if you want a little more action, you all can hit the main marina town or take a boat trip to El Arco. It's all insanely Baja beautiful.
