    Family vacation

    First visit to Barcelo Caribe, Riviera Maya, Mexico. We were six family members and we had a fantastic time. Resort was very nice, our room was older however clean & comfortable. Beach was outstanding and many pools. Food was quite good, we did the Buffet’s as we had two young children. Lunch bars were good, lots to drink, sports activities, lots to do. We didn’t get to the nightly shows as we were exhausted by 10:00 pm. Huge place with 6 resorts together, Caribe, Tropical, Beach, Adults only, the Palace and I’m missing one. We had a great time with no complaints, and the staff were friendly, very nice and aimed to please us. We tipped everywhere as they are very hard working, and very gracious.

    Nice resort with lots to do.

    My first time to this large resort the tenth Mexican resort/hotel I've stayed at. This area is great, maybe just a little dated, but no problem. The room was quite nice. On 3rd floor, there is an elevator if needed. Compared to many resorts the lobby area doesn't wow you as you enter, nor did the exterior. But that didn't matter. It was easy to find my way around the resort. Short walk to pools and beach was just a short distance beyond. The very large well organized buffet wasn't far to walk back to either. Lots of food options well displayed and labeled. Near the mall, Sports bar area is the free WiFi, limited times. Or $45/wk...odd not free! Being there over Spring Break made it a bit busy due to many high school students! However with the virus issue there wasn't many around. There are so many pools you can use and plenty of loungers and hammocks. There is even a lap pool with 5 lanes, I think, that was great! On the beach you'll always find a lounger and shade from a palm tree. The restaurant's are really well done, modern stylish and strick on dress code, for once. You won't go hungry! Fine dining for sure. Besides not giving you the free WiFi, the other issues would be not having enough bartenders at the theater. Maybe a more detailed map showing where you get your towels for pools etc. and restroom locations. I found both easily enough. Yes there are many things that do cost extra but you don't need to leave the resort to enjoy some unique things. Sign up for a free sailboat ride, you'll love the changes in water colors! Few good areas for snorkeling, mostly from the pier towards Palace. Lots of long beaches for walking. Take a Collectivo to Playa del Carmen cheap easy get to Hwy they will take you for $3 or less each. Pay when yoy get off. Be sure you learn where to get the ride for returning to resort etc. Cross Hwy take one to Tulum, cheap, walk to ruins pay for tour guide..easy.

    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!!!

    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.
