Wished pools were open later for kids. Hotel guide said they were open 8-8, but that wasn’t the case. Closed by 7. Don’t need all 7 open, maybe just one. Not much to do at night for kids... mini golf at night cost money, bowling is extra too. Ping Pong, tennis, basketball, ect are all available during day only. Can check out items for an hour. Shows weren’t live in theater. Played videos. So Broadway night.. was a video of Frank Sinatra. Overall photos online were accurate. Nice place. Grounds are beautiful Rooms/bathrooms were a tad musty-mildew smelling. Probably bc hotel is completely open to elements and very humid out. Room ACs work hard.

The bartenders at the pool where not friendly we are people that tip ever time we order but they hardly even say thinks, very poor service at the pool bars to. To many kids hang out around the pool bars and jump off the stools there should be an age limit to be by the bar know need for kids to be there. The Captain Morgan bar and Strikers had the best bartenders friendly to everyone and fun. Hotel over all is nice but the kids at the bars is out of control. The food love the steak place and Tokyo to me the other places weren't good and that is just my opinion. Like how there is a lot of places around the pool with fast food to eat and Strikers.

The room size was average, but the house keeping was poor. They never restocked our fridge which was included in price. Service was not very good through out the all inclusive.

*Check in took way to long, 45 minutes then another 2-3 hours for rooms to be ready. We had 2 rooms, 1 king & 1 with 2 beds. Ended up with 2 King rooms which was inconvenient for my family. *WiFi was limited to a time and location, of course during prime time beach/pool time . *No communication on activities we had to seek out ourself or came across entertainment by accident. *Restaurant's had limited availability and very strict on pants for men. The men could wear long sweatpants to supper but not dress shorts! *Bathrooms at pool where always out of toilet paper/paper towels. One day we where at the pool for 6 hours straight and the bathroom never had toilet or paper towels that whole time. *Buffet was so-so . Every buffet had same food over and over. The food did not agree with many of us . *This was a very disappointing resort for the money, we have traveled to several Mexico resorts cheaper and better. We will not be returning or stay at Barcelo location again.

The Barcelo Maya is a big resort. We booked the Caribe and was put in the Tropical when we checked in. The beach is the best thing about this resort. There are many activities to do at this resort. The buffets are not very good. The a la Carte restaurants are good, but book dinner reservations as soon as you get checked in. I recommend upgrading to the premium level when you check in.

Beautiful location, subpar management

The beaches and overall presentation of the resort is great. Our room had issues with the plumbing (only scorching hot water at times, toilet constantly ran) and the toilet seat didn't stay up. Otherwise I had no complaints about the room. My main issue with the resort was how the lack of empathy from the Tokyo restaurant hostess and manager. (05/13/17)

Great Family Resort

Pros: Great resort for a family vacation.
Location: Great location, beaches and near numerous activities outside of the resort. You don't need to leave, but we decided to take a taxi to Akumal
Great trip to Barcelo! Amazing beaches, friendly staff, clean rooms, activities galore. Our only complaint was the hotel was very busy so we were not able to schedule any dinner reservations. We were fine with the buffet - they did a great job.
