Gigantic but finely run resort

Pros: beautiful and very cleanly maintained property, great beach (we almost didn't use pools since the sea was so beautiful and accessible), buffet food options were enormous and of good quality, good service overall. Cons: because the resort is enormous, the distances can become exhausting. We were put in one of the furthest buildings 7-10 min walk from lobby/buffets/guest services. Limited options for A la carte dining. We went to guest services right after our arrival, but most popular restaurants didn't have any tables left for any of the 4 days of our stay. Also, not enough shade at the beach: there are no beach umbrellas, just some skinny palms which don't give enough shade from the tropical sun. Still, our whole family (including two kids) enjoyed out stay at this well-run resort.

Warm enough in December

We spend at the Barcelo Mayra palace for 7 days from December 7th to 13.. We were from New York and we were a little worried that the December 2nd week weather thinking it would be little cold but to our surprise the weather was so comfortable.. In the morning the pool was little cold but for us it was really good and by noon the beach and the pool waters were really warm enough for us coming from Northeast of USA.. Since it is a Barcelona Maya palace we were able to go to all the restaurants and all the theaters in this complex so it was never boring even if you spend more than a week so there were variety of foods and different different pools and different options for kids

What's to Love

The all-inclusiveness & all-aah-mazingness of everything.

Chillaxing & living large with an umbrella drink in the padded in-pool loungers.

The anxiety-ousting spa with the flotation tank, Swiss shower & reflexology.

The Kids Club that has wave after wave of fun & a buffet for your beach munchkins.


What We'd Change

Without a door separating the shower from the dressing area in the suite, you may have to learn to share bathroom time wisely or risk getting wet.


Why You Should Go

It's 47 miles south of the airport - just enough time to unwind before you hit Beach Eden.

Don't miss the Dolphinarium, where you can shake fins with these friendly, smiling critters.

For splashy fun, there's windsurfing & water trikes. For less water, try mini-golf.

There's tennis, beach volleyball & a fitness center - or a pool table if you just want to hang.

Hotel Description

Barcelo Maya Palace

If you're up for a deluxe Beach Palace on the luxurious Riviera Maya (and who's not?), where you can chillax by the clear, turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea, then grab your suitcase. The overarching concept? Stay at one resort, play at five. Truth is, this Noble Beach Prize Winner has it all: rockin' fitness center, 24-hour all-inclusiveness, free-flowing food and drinks, cool Colonial-style architecture, 11 pools, three water parks, a 33,000-square-foot U-Spa, lots of sunny activities and fun under the moonlight. Was that applause we just heard? Thought so.

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


Foodies, get ready to salivate. The cuisine here runs the gamut: everything from Caribbean specialties to Brazilian with those scrumptious cuts of meat. Classic French with an impressive wine list to a couple of plentiful buffets - one that boasts global flavors, the other Mexican-style. Of course, there's a delish spot for fresh seafood and a grill for all your sizzling favs. Beach appetit. (At Barcelo Maya Palace, you get to stay at one, play at five. Dig in at Barcelo Beach, Barcelo Caribe, Barcelo Tropical & Barcelo Colonial.)
