Don't wast your money

Have been to other all inclusive properties. This was by far the worst. The only positive was that the property was clean! Food below average when you could get it. Buffet at dinner had a lot of empty pans. Couldn't get dinner reservations till 10 pm on any of our 5 nights. Front desk experience was absolutely horrible. Female manager was very unaccomodating.

AMAZING RESORT!!!

This was my second time back to this resort and they honestly couldn’t make it any better!! I can’t say enough good things about this place! While it’s an hour away from the airport, it’s worth it!! SOOO many food options and the friendliest staff accommodating ALL languages and ethnicities. It’s GREAT for families, couples and singles! The biggest thing that sets this resort apart from others is that it’s 3 resorts on 1, that means triple the size!! It’s HUGE and offers so many included activities you couldn’t possibly do everything in just one stay! Will be back again!

AMAZING RESORT!!! AMAZING RESORT!!!

We Keep Coming Back!

This was our 4th stay at Barceló Maya Tropical going through Cheap Caribbean! We absolutely love it this resort and what it offers! What you get for the price is AMAZING! We have found they have continually added on new features... like the new mall, the wave machine, and more restaurants! You will continuously see their maintenance staff working to keep everything in tip top shape. We personally love to go snorkeling right off the beach... we saw sea turtles, stingrays, a mantra ray, tons of different kinds of fish AND an octopus! We like to bring our own snorkeling gear. The beach is beautiful and always clean - the sand is super soft! Their buffet is huge, with staff standing by to make dishes "fresh" if you want - i.e.. omelets! The restaurants we've visited were delicious! We've never had a problem finding lounge chairs to use at anytime of day by the pool or on the beach. We visited this resort in the late April and late November. We've found that the pools are a little cool in late November but that is to be expected as it is their winter season but it's not to hot to do things outside of the water - the varies games they have around - mini golf, ping pong, etc. Where as in the spring the pools are warmer but it can get quite humid and hot if your not use to that kind of weather. The staff has always been very helpful and polite! (We do take one dollars for tipping the staff - this it our discretion and is not mandatory.) Make sure you take 2-3 swim suits to trade out while the other ones dry. Make sure to take in the nightly entertainment - specially the Fantasia night! They even come out in the crowd and get little kids to participate. Also, take good walking shoes if you want to see the whole resort... it's HUGE! There are so many things to do - we still have done them all! There is no need to leave the resort and we felt very safe there. Can't wait to do a FAMILY vacation... hopefully in the near future!

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, 2 tickets
  • 4-6 nights, 2 tickets
  • 7 nights, 4 tickets
  • 8-10 nights, 5 tickets
  • 10 nights, 7 tickets
  • 11-13 nights, 6 tickets
  • 14 nights, 8 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.
