Our Opinion

A great resort with an amazing and large pool area. The buffet items are good and there are a variety of a la carte restaurants to choose from including a great Italian restaurant. The resort has very attentive and friendly staff. The pool area is lively and the kids pool is one of the best in Riviera Maya. This resort is perfect for both couples and families with younger or older children. This resort, combined with its sister properties, the Barcelo Maya Tropical, Barcelo Maya Beach and Barcelo Maya Caribe make for a huge complex. If you want all the benefits of the Barcelo Maya Tropical, but want a step up in accommodations and service, try the Barcelo Maya Palace next door. You still get access to all areas of the resort complex but in a higher-end setting and finer dining options.
