Great Place

PLUSES: You get a lot for your money.. The buffets alone are huge and varied. I would, however, stay away from the "restaurants" that you get tickets for when you first arrive. The food just is not that good. The buffets offer much more, and the food quality in general is better. The landscaping is beautiful and meticulous. The ;pools are great. The bars and the grills are all over, and offer many choices. The drinks are usually quite good. The ocean activities center is good. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Everything is kept so clean and orderly The beds are very comfortable. The only snorkeling on site is at the pier. Lots of fish, but only a few varieties. The Hobi Cat sailboats were fun. Suggestion: They need to give you more than 1/2 hour! Not long enough to get a good sail going before you have to come back! Lots of beach chairs. MINUSES: The beaches were full of seaweed - they need to get a better plan to keep the beaches cleaner on a regular basis. On our last day there our maid did not turn our room over, even though we were gone most of the day and we saw her in the hall.. We returned later, the room still was not done,- it was 4:30 pm and she had gone.. Fortunately there was a maid in the hall and we flagged her down and she did it for us. One of our tours trips was cancelled when we got there due to rough ocean conditions. It was very complicated getting a refund! I won't take up time to go into the details, but the hotel needs to expedite that process! We wasted a lot of time sitting around and had to come back the next day.

Great location! Low grade drinks/food

Great service and attention to the beautiful grounds/ pools/ beaches. We have been to multiple all inclusive resorts in the past, the food here was mediocre with the exception of a couple of dinners. Drinks are by far low grade and the staff didn’t exactly make it easy to explain how to upgrade. Still great service and resort, as long as you plan on buying your own room service bottles and pick and choose what to eat!

Honeymoon

We decided to visit Barcelo Maya for our honeymoon. We had heard some pretty good reviews from friends who had visited before and I loved the pictures that I saw online. A few days leading up to the trip I finally decided to read some Yelp reviews, and I cringed because there are a lot of complaints. I wish I would have done deeper research before I selected this resort. From the moment we checked in, I was immediately disappointed. The front desk informed us that they did not have any king size beds available even though we booked one, so we spent our honeymoon with 2 double sized beds. We were told to check back the next day to see if there were any new rooms with a king size bed available, which we did. When inquiring about a new room, we were told we could have one for an additional $1000, that’s insane, especially after spending thousands of dollars to be here already. We were told that we would have some extra amenities sent up fo our room to celebrate our honeymoon, we never did. We had house keeping every day but for some reason around 5pm everyday someone would knock once and then bust into our room before we even had a chance to open the door. Don’t they keep track of which rooms already received cleaning service? Speaking of cleaning, our bath tub had dead bugs in it upon arrival, which just further made the room unsatifying. To be honest, I thought that a lot of the previous reviews I read were from high end travelers who are really picky, but coming from a person who always gives service staff the benefit of the doubt and tries to never complain, you can find a better resort. The only positive parts of the trip was, the beach and pool are beautiful and there is a wide selection of food to choose from. The Caribe buffet is not good and the food looks like it has been sitting out for awhile, but the Tropical and Colonial buffets are delicious! We never had any issues with making reservations for the restaurants of our choice, despite what many of the reviews said. Overall, it was mediocre but I will never stay here again.

Great vacation place

I have been to the Barcelo Maya Beach & Caribe 2 times before. It is always a great vacation place. The staff is friendly, attentive, and always willing to assist you in any way possible. The resort is beautiful, clean, and always kept up meticulously. The food is average, however the individual restaurants are really excellent. If i had one major complaint, it would about the bars at the beach. The drinks are awful. All the flavors of the frozen drinks that you get have a medicine taste to them, and they melt within minutes...! The only thing you can drink from there is beer or hard core tequila, or shots, and sometimes you just don't want those options. I will most likely visit the Barcelo Maya Beach & Caribe again, it is a great resort. However I will know that I have to bring water to the beach because the drinks are not good at the Beach Bar...!
