    Wonderful experience for our first All-Inclusive resort

    Our first visit to an all-inclusive resort was excellent, with great service, good food, and a relaxed feel to the resort. We stayed at a Premium-Level room with an ocean view. This made the visit more special with amenities and benefits that we thought were worth the up-charge. The room was spacious and well maintained. We had no real use for the balcony jaccuzi, but just sitting out there and looking at the palm trees and beach was terrific. The Beach-side shop "Piscina Beach" offered lots of items to enhance our visit. Sunscreen, swim goggles, beach balls and more. Both Mayra and Gisela in the store were so friendly and helpful which made our visit even more enjoyable!!!

    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.
