Our Opinion

A very family friendly hotel with lots of children around the kids pool. The main pool is lively and the adults pool is a quieter setting. So all in all, this resort has something for everyone. The buffet and a la carete restaurants are great, especially the French Restaurant. Free wifi in the lobby area. A good sized gym with modern equipment. Staying in the Palace section, you also get access to the whole Barcelo complex, giving guests an endless supply of a la carte restaurants to choose from, two great kids areas and a disco!. A definite go-to resort for families and couples. However, if couples don't want lots of children around, this resort might not be for them as there are lots of families at this property.

Barcelo Maya Palace

The Barcelo Maya Beach Resort is part of Barcelo's most luxurious 5-hotel complex, designed to envelope you in a tranquil beachfront elegance, with stunning colonial-style architecture surrounded by lush tropical landscapes. Oversized windows look out to breathtaking views of palm-dotted sands leading to sparkling jewel-toned waters beyond. Offers a variety of sumptuous cuisines, luxurious accommodations and exhilarating activities.
Location: On a white sandy beach on the Mayan Riviera, 20 minutes to the town of Playa del Carmen and a 50 minute drive from Cancun airport.
