Our Opinion

An excellent 4-star hotel for great value. Clean and well-kept properties and amazing beach views. The buffet items are okay. However, the resort is noted for their a la carte restaurants. The beaches are well kept and the resort is staffed with very attentive and friendly guest services.

Waterpark

Our boys (10&12 yrs old) had an amazing time and experience with flow ride at the surf waterpark. The 1 hour lesson was great. The instructors were fantastic, friendly, patient and experienced. This has definitely given our boys a memorable first time adventure and are very excited to do it again!

Don't plan on eating!

We stayed here in January 2016. Our entire party were in agreement that we did not get our money worth. First off we had an all inclusive drink package which included an additional fee for liquor. Awesome! Thanks! Food: Where do I begin? The buffets were terrible! You know it's bad when even chicken fingers aren't edible! We were only able to make ONE reservation at a real restaurant - which wasn't much better. I found it very odd that the restaurants were empty however we were not allowed to dine in them. My favorite was the pizza late night. They put out pies after concerts were attending onsite.. We were sitting down, having drinks, listening to music and watching people walk buy and just randomly pick slices off the tables. Not a huge deal even though the servers were supposed to bring you your own.. watching the staff combine leftover pizza and re-serve it 2-3 times was the best though!! Isn't that what you pay for?? Food that has sat out for a while, picked apart, then served again?? Just be warned... aside from that, the beach and pools are beautiful! Just get your act together with the food/drinks!

It's OK if you are looking to spend less...

I didn't decide on this resort, my friends did. I wouldn't have booked this resort otherwise. The buffet restaurants can't keep the food hot, so the quality was very disappointing. The ala carte restaurants were hit and miss... Both Spanish and Japanese were very good. Some of the others had some very good items on my plate while the others were disappointing. The beach is great, not too rocky but why not bring swim shoes along... The bar service was hit and miss also. It seems that the bar staff is not trained on how to make drinks consistently. Next time you order another round, don't be surprised if it is made with different ingredients! Staff was not as friendly as many other resorts I have been to. Although many activities are included free of charge (especially water activities), the ones that are not, will cost you your first born, crazy! I will NOT be going back to a Barcelo resort! I would rather pay more to have a more satisfying experience. Traveled first week of Nov.

50th Anniversary Celebration!

All 16 of us had an awesome time! From the restaurants to the beach and all around!!! Staff was very friendly and helpful. Workout area was top notch. Enjoyed two massages at the spa that were to die for! Can't wait to go back!

A day trip to Paradise

The Barcelo Resorts in the Rivera Maya are so beautiful and worth visiting. It rests along the Rivera Maya and has some of the best beaches. While on vacation you can go there and buy a day pass which is all inclusive and so worth it. Of course you could plan your next vacation there, all inclusive and never want to go anywhere else. One of the waiter's at the restaurant at the resort, Hassim Viana is the most professional and considerate on staff. All the employees there are top notch and you feel so welcomed.
