    March Madness

    This is our second time in the last 6 months, this place is fabulously-Perfecto and we can't get enough of it. The food and entertainment is awesome, the grounds are beautiful and the rooms are very clean! We will return in June if COVID-19 is no longer a threat.

    Fantastic Resort

    Before I begin I wanted to thank the Barcelo Maya Caribe staff for all they have done. Excellent, Excellent. If your looking for a family resort this is the place. This is not a 5 star hotel but the service and staff made it feel like it was a 5 star hotel. The food, the beach, the salt water -- fantastic. We will go again. Quick example, the cold water wasn't work properly in the room, called the front desk within 30min issue resolved. Service man came in the room did his thing. Camera's everywhere this is a safe place if something goes wrong they know. Now for the bad, its not so much the hotels fault, but if you decide to go down during spring break your going to get the young kids who think they can party all night long and make noise. Well that stopped quickly, one phone call to the front desk and security put a stop to the noise. Lucky for us the boys, 3 rooms down from us were quickly set straight. So do not be alarmed keep calm just call the front desk and staff will take care of you. What I remember the most was the staff, the nice lady making my breakfast always with a smile (Celestina wonderful lady and cant forget about Maria ), room service (Sandra was her name, Fantastic lady) always fresh and clean. This is the place for me, went snorkeling for at least 3hrs a day, played basket ball, went on excursion (buy online, I went down with sunwing) -- Tour Guide Carlos was fantastic

    Family Vacation to the Barcelo Maya Caribe

    This was our 5th trip to the Barcelo Maya in as many years and all I can say is that it did not disappoint. From the exceptional staff, the excellent food, the pristine beaches, the unreal ocean front family suite, the bars and the entertainment, for my money you can’t do better. We always enjoy our trips to the Barcelo and this one did not disappoint, we will be back and be back soon. I would recommend this resort to anyone looking to have a great time with family and/or friends who can appreciate beautiful pristine beach’s, great staff and service, excellent food and drink, basically anyone who is looking for an unreal resort with many things to do and see. The staff here know how to take care of their guests, our room was unbelievable, we were upgraded to a Ocean Front family suite and it made our trip all that much more enjoyable. Thanks again Barcelo Maya, staff and management for the wonderful experience.

    Fantastic stay at the Barcelo Maya Caribe

    We stayed in an oceanfront junior suite in the Caribe section of the resort. If you have never stayed here, there were 5 sections (now 6, including the new adults only section that just opened last year). Our room was beautiful, and recently updated. We had a large patio that faced the ocean. Very minimal ocean views due to the trees, but beautiful none the less. We had a large jet tub on our patio that we used once. Very nice! Bed was very comfortable, AC worked well. We always like to run the ceiling fan over the bed to sleep, which made it very comfortable to sleep. There were a couple of nights were people being loud out in the hall woke us up. Didn't last long. We moved between the beach and the pool. Pool had music and games going on for most of the afternoon. Dance lessons, aquafit, water polo, etc. Typical stuff. We didn't participate, but people seemed to be having fun. Bars were good. Beach is huge and people move around alot, so you don't get drink service on the beach, but you do if you sit by the pools. We were premium, so you had no issue getting the drink you wanted, other than they ran out of certain premium alcohols shortly after lunch. Buffets were very good for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We enjoyed them. Obviously noisier than the a la cartes, but that is to be expected. Food was good and constantly being restocked. We did 4 a la carte dinners. Spanish, Mexican, and the Italian (Trattoria twice). There were all excellent. We did the Italian on the 2nd night there and enjoyed it so much, we went back and booked it again. Quiet, romantic and great food at all of them. The second trip to the Italian had singers that came in and sang a 3-4 italian opera songs. Really cool!! This was our third stay at Barcelo, and I will admit, I am very impressed with the constant drive to keep improving this resort. Every time we have been here, I have seen them giving out questionnaires to ask for suggestions for improvements. This is an absolutely beautiful resort with so much to offer, I will definately come back again. The nice part is that it is large enough that each time we are here feels like a visiting a new resort.
