Our Opinion

This is an older section of the Barcelo Maya resort complex but renovations in 2013 include refurbished guest rooms, restaurants and bars and a new interactive dolphin experience. Overall, this is a great property with a really nice beach area and lots of facilities and activities.


Overview

Looking for quiet seclusion amid tropical gardens? Then this Barcelo hotel - set on a two-kilometre white sand beach surrounded by a completely virgin natural park - is just the place. The landscaping is spectacular and there's a wide variety of dining and entertainment options. Located within the expansive complex of the Barcelo Maya Beach Resort, you can enjoy all the facilities of the 4 hotels within the complex.  An ideal place for families and couples, the Barcelo Maya Beach Resort is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing beach vacation or a fun-filled holiday. 


Location: Directly on the beach, 20 min from Playa del Carmen, 5 min from Puerto Aventuras, 60 min from the Cancun airport.

tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • Alessandro S :
Wonderful stay

Stayed with my wife from 12 to 24 July with all-inclusive formula, everithing was great! room cleaning very efficient, service ready and excellent. high-quality food all over the place, particularly so far as soups, fish (always fresh) and meat were concerned. Mexican food there also very tasty, we recommend the mexican restaurant 'Mexicolindo' inside the hotel, where they serve a superb 'cochinita pibil', a local specialty based on boiled pork meat and banana.Beach in front of the hotel simply breath-taking. We also enjoyed being constantly enveloped in nature, with iguanas and squirrels constantly around! Wish we could have stayed longer...

Very nice resort

This resort is very nice. It is very large and there is a lot to do. The restaurants you make reservations to were very nice also. The best one was Mexico Lindo with chef Rodrigo Solda. The servers and chef made our dinner experience so fun and the food was delicious. The buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner served pretty much the same foods each day. That was a bummer. The food on the buffet was good... not great, but good. Several time I visited the ladies room and they would be out of TP. Yikes!!! All in all I would recommend this resort.

Good for family/senior spring break

We went here with multiple families for a senior spring break. The resort was huge, there was lots to do. The pools were very clean and the beach was beautiful. The restaurants on site were pretty decent. However, I was not impressed by the lunch buffet which provided basically the same options every day. There was lots to do at the resort. We went snorkeling, swam with dolphins (pictures were VERY expensive) , swam in the ocean, got cornrows ($21 USD for only 3 rows) and met new people each night. The crowd there was very friendly and fun. The room was out of date and ugly but it's fine since we didn't spend much time there. I wish that everything in the resort was included with the price. There was also much to do outside of the resort. We went swimming in caves and visited Tulum which was very cool. Overall, it was a very good trip. The staff was friendly and the resort was pretty grand.

Repeat visitors

My husband and I have visited Barcelo many times over the past 10 years or so. We typically stay at the Beach hotel, mostly because it is next to a beautiful beach. We stayed 5 nights this time. Because we visited so many times, we requested an upgrade to premium service and, after verifying, we were given the upgrade. We always enjoy this hotel. The best parts: the beach and pools. Lots of space, always a place to sit, well-kept grounds, very professional and nice staff. We usually eat at the buffet and can always find something we like. For a large operation, the food is nicely prepared, flavorful and varied-something for everyone. Our room was adequate and clean. We don't care about shows and occasionally attend one, and they are mildly entertaining. We will definitely return again and again. We traveled with 2 family members and think Barcelo is a great place for families with all age groups. We also enjoyed the newer adult only pool at the Beach.

Super gorgeous beaches and resort!

I stayed a couple days at this resort to check it out, and it has a fantastic beach! The beach is set up like a post card with its white sandy beaches and palm trees. The resort keeps the beach super clean, and its not crowded like other beaches. The resort itself has a great layout and is huge! There are 4 resorts inside the one main complex (Maya Beach, Caribe, Colonial, and the Grand Palace) They have their own indoor mall you can go shop at as well. They have it set up where there is a pool for each of the resorts and are very clean, and its only about 20-30 yards away from the end of the buildings you stay in, so not far away(depending what end your staying). They have a very similar set up as their resort in Punta Cana, you can tell its the same designer. the beach is as gorgeous as there!!. I thought the staff was friendly and willing to assist. The rooms are clean and comfy beds. The breakfast buffet had lots of options for you to pick from, as well as the lunch, and dinner. I didn't stay long enough to feel I can make a comment on how well the food was or wasn't, but i can say after only staying 2 days the food was better than their resort in Punta Cana, since it has more flavor than there. Overall I enjoyed my brief stay, and for sure will be going back! I would recommend staying at the Maya Beach for sure, it has THE best beach area of the resort complex in my opinion. That's one of the main reason I go for is the beach. This my third time staying at Barceló resorts and have enjoyed staying at their resorts.
