Great Mega Resort

Pros: The kind staff and service. Super clean!! Beautiful grounds!
Cons: Better teen centered activities. My teens disappointed in this.
Location: Cenotes Azul, Cristobel and Chicken Ha. Tulum quick Collectivo away.
Quick check-in! Great ala carte restaurants. Buffets didn't care for. Always found something to eat though. Can we as big or small as you want it to be. Walked out of hotel wing straight to pool on one end and lobby the other. If you want to explore the other hotels, you can. Loved you can walk from your room to buffet and the mall completely covered in case it rains. Cannot even get a drink at Palace. Knew you could not eat there but after the long walk down there, we thought we could get a coke at least. Not sure if you are allowed to use their pools but we did. Missed out on water activities. Ocean too rough for water bikes, paddle boarding and kayaks. They DO NOT take you out on hobby cats like other resorts; use have to do it yourself. That left us out! Snorkeling was okay. Maybe for novices. Didn't see much fish. A lot of dead coral. Snorkeled way out too. Didn't see turtles even at different times of day down by Palace. I am sure if the weather was affected, it would have been great. Entertainment, okay. A lot of similar acts. Loved the fact they have a mall for shopping and also outdoor market type shopping. Cenotes across street were great visit! Walk there. Used the hotel bus once to try it out to go to Palace. Quicker to walk there. Pluses...bath products...shampoo, conditioner, body wash dispenser, small tube of toothpaste, a toothbrush, shoe shine kit, sewing kit, vanity kit, slippers, robes, snacks and plenty of drinks.

Great resort close to the beach

Pros: I think I pretty much described that above but the main attraction for us since we love to snorkel was the fact that we didnt have to leave the site.
Cons: We would have liked to have some live music while we ate dinner, earlier show options, and more americanized food choices.
Location: There a great cenotes right across the street that we walked to. The resort is about an hour and 20 minutes from the airport.
We were treated great from the time we checked in untill we checked out. It was our first stay at Barcelo Maya Beach and received a free room upgrade on arrival. Our room had a ocean view with a balcony and hot tub. We were greeted with a bottlle of champagne the second day we were there and had returned to our room from swimming. The second day we had a plate of chocolate covered strawberries and drinks waiting in our room. The staff were always very friendly and the grounds were beautiful and well kept. The beach was beautiful with great snorkling right at the resort-you did need to go down a ways closer to the Palace resort for the best snorkling however. My only complaint would be that the shows started a little late for us-9:30. We were usually too tired to stay up that late after all the water activities we did. I personally did not care for alot of the food at the buffet but my husband liked it. There was alot of seafood which I dont care for and their meats had very strong seasoning. The fruits, breads and desserts were yummy.

Nice Beach & pool..but hotel not all inclusive

Pros: Beach was nice, clean. Pool area was enjoyable. several pools and areas for both families and for those without kids
Cons: service. Customer Service was not good. not accomadating at all for the inconvenience(s)
Location: Xcaret Playa De Carmen
Had booked travel at Barcelo Maya Beach, was moved too Colonial .. and not pleased. this part of the hotel is older and in desperate need of remodeling / updating. Room bathroom had mold, bathroom toilet had to be serviced several times during our stay due to faulty & constant running. Service from staff was not responsive and reacted as we should deal with it. Reservations were booked, because the hotel was over booked so we could not make reservations for dinner for 2 nights NOT the experience i wanted for our family vacation

Fantastic Vacation

Pros: Location was beautiful, food was great, (lots of wonderful seafood) service was excellent.
Cons: There was a musty smell in our rooms in Caribe like something had been put away wet. Otherwise no complaints. Beds and pillows were awesome.
Location: Area was phenomenal, beach beautiful, location was private, larger city Playa del Carmen was nearby for daytrip as were many other adventure parks etc
This was a wonderful resort, food, rooms, facilities, pools, beach etc. Loved the location--not as touristy. Beaches were fabulous, service was fantastic. No real complaints. Would definitely go again.

Gorgeous resort with lots of options

Pros: The hotel was gorgeous with five different options in the overall resort complex. Everything was well decorated, clean and amazing.
Cons: Our biggest complaint was the lack of communication. It felt more like a hunt and search to find out what was going on around the resort. More info!
Location: The hotel is within walking distance of the beach and was gorgeous. There were also a lot of options for tours and adventures. Chichen Itza was great.
What a gorgeous location for a vacation! We recommend it. Going premium is worth the extra money. Our rooms were comfy and the beds were awesome. We loved the view and tub. It is a lot of walking so be prepared. The children's club was a hit with our 8 yo. The shopping there on the resort was even decent. We spent the day at the spa which was ok but not great. The food was amazing and fresh fruit outstanding. Be sure you book any specialty dinners as soon as you can as they are full before you even get there which was a bit of a disappointment. The servers were always responsive and helpful. The food was amazing even in the buffet. The buffets near the pool and beach were the most disappointing but still ok. We aren't drinkers but we did try several virgin drinks - daquris, bahama mama and such. It would have been nice to have had a menu of options instead of having to guess. Our one big complaint was the lack of communication about the resort itself and everything it had to offer. It was a bit of a hunt and locate to figure anything out. With a resort so large and across the world, I would expect to have more info. It would have been nice to be given a packet of info upon check in with everything. Heck we would have went scuba diving or ATVing had we known about it and the costs. Really this was the most annoying part. It would have been nice to have a method to flag down the train that went between places or let them know if you wanted a stop.

Everything I expected

Pros: Close restaurants, scuba diving
This resort was beautiful and had alot to offer. We got into the scuba diving while we were there and it was the best I have had yet, and the staff was awesome! The beach was pristine and the water was perfect. Definitely looks like something out of a Corona commercial. The drinks were delicious as well. Something for everyone here. I will definitely be returning.

Good value.

Staff was very helpful & polite. Buffets were decent and the specialty restaurants were excellent. The resort is very large. We didn't mind walking (it burned off those extra calories!) but it could be an issue for some people.
