Our Opinion

This resort is the other half of the Barcelo Maya Colonial. Together they make up a great resort for families and couples alike. A great kids pool and lots of activities make this resort popular with families. A lively pool area and disco on site, make this resort popular for young and active couples. You also have access to the sister properties next door, the Barcelo Maya Beach and Barcelo Maya Caribe. The beach area here is great as well, white sand, clear water and lots of sun lounge chairs. 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.

Barcelo Maya Tropical

This deluxe resort has all the hallmarks of a Barcelo five-star experience. Almost a thousand guestrooms, six restaurants, six bars, and over a mile of the sugary white sand beach which has made the Mayan Riviera famous. The Barcelo Maya Tropical Beach depicts elegant Mexican style and grants full access to the four sections of the mega complex! An excellent choice for groups as it features expansive meeting facilities.

Location: On the beach, 20 min to Playa del Carmen, 50 min from the airport.
