There is nothing you could want more in a resort than the Barcelo Maya Beach Resort.. excellent food, excellent service, clean and nice rooms and bedding, great drinks, all access beach grill open all day, swim up bars, beautiful grounds, hot sun and warm white sand. You will not go wrong if you chose this resort. I was there from December 19 - 26, 2009. They went all out for Christmas including passing out champagne and amazing dinner.. even Santa in the lobby. I especially enjoyed… Read Full Review

I would NEVER recommended this hotel as the staff was extremely rude and unaccommodating and made the stay VERY UNPLEASANT. I was there for a family wedding with 35 guests who all spent a fortune at the hotel for the wedding. Despite a wedding planner from the hotel, we were not able to have a rehearsal dinner, even though it had been arranged months in before. Once we arrived, they said sorry there are too many of you, even though at the time the restaurant was empty and set up waiting for all… Read Full Review

Stayed at the tropical during February vacation and had a good time. The pools are very large with plenty of room to swim. The food and types of food was very good. The hotel room and grounds are very clean and maintained. We booked an ocean front room with "sea views" I have been at a different beach resort for five years and a row and the views at this hotel was the worst. If you are like me an require a good view of the ocean, this hotel is not for you. The hotel is set back from the… Read Full Review

Barcelo Maya Beach Resort, Mayan Riviera, is spottless, and wonderfully laid out. Snorkling just fine for beginners. Food was great. Staff was friendly. Lots to do for activities..Pools were beautiful. Wanted to get away for a special vacation...looking for heaven on earth....and except for the fact that you put weight on for the food you ate....it was just that....What a wonderful time, location, and resort....Get up early...and watch the sun rise from the ocean.
ps...walk to the… Read Full Review

The Maya Beach section isn't the highest end of the resort, but we were very comfortable and had a wonderful vacation. The grounds were beautiful and well maintained, and all of the staff were friendly. We would recommend it without reservation… Read Full Review

All in all, we had a great vacation despite the weather. Suggestion would be to have some activities when the rains hit.
We could not watch the show at the Beach Resort as the theatre was ungodly hot. The ceiling fans were of no use. We ended up taking tram (sometimes having to wait up to 40 minutes as there was no room on tram) to Palace Hotel and enjoying the shows in air conditioning without the noxious smell of cigarettes… Read Full Review

For a 5 star resort, I expect to be waited on for at least one meal and not have to pay additional fees to go to one of the other restaurants. Of course, you couldn't get reservations to any of them anyway, we were a group of 18 and no one could get any kind of reservation anywhere, so it was buffet food for 7 days! No one came around the pool and beach areas to offer us drinks. There was only one lounge and we waited for 1.5 hours to get a Vodka Martini. When I asked for it, their response was… Read Full Review

Food great, drinks perfect. All lovely and clean. Entertainment is good. A lovely place to fly 11 hours to spend your holiday. Definitely recommended… Read Full Review

We went to the Barcelo Maya Beach Resort for our honeymoon and can't wait to return for our 5th anniversary - it's a great resort and the area has so much going on - we went snorkeling in Xel Ha (where fresh water meets the sea) and swam with the fishes. We went trekking in the rain forest, climbed a pyramid, got blessed by a Shamen before entering a candle lit cave pool, we spent time in a Mayan village and zip lined across the rain forest, we took advantage of the resorts scuba diving lesson… Read Full Review

Our whole family is looking forward to a return trip. We had a wonderful experience and the Barcelo Maya Beach resort is lovely. Would highly recommend this resort to families with small children due to the great children's water park at the resort. If you can, try and stay in the Colonial section. It is centrally located and you'll save a few steps… Read Full Review

Barcelo Maya Beach Resort:
This was the first time we had been to an all-inclusive resort and all I can say is that we will always go to an all-inclusive resort in the future!
the only bad point was the long flight over there from London, 11 hours but definitely worth it once we got here.
we arrived in the evening and were very hungry but not to worry we were immediately shown to the massive range of food. all food was great and the cocktails even better! the beach is beautiful, the hotel had… Read Full Review
