Excellent resort with fantastic beach and outstanding staff! Nov 20, 2011
I treated my mom to a trip to the Mayan Riviera and we spent a week at Barcelo Maya Beach and LOVED it! The resort is huge and the hotel grounds were perfectly maintained and we saw gardeners out every single day. There is a shuttle that goes around the entire resorts ( all 5 of the barcelo hotels) every 20 mins. There are also elevators in each of the hotel blocks. The pool was also huge and very clean. The beach was a gorgeous long stretch of soft white sand with plenty of chairs for everyone. The ocean was almost always a little bit wavy and ranged anywhere from being crystal clear to very poor visibility. Our room was clean and comfortable and we loved the privacy of our balcony. We never had any shortage of hot water ever.

Check in and check out was smooth. There are a few shops, but the items in there were VERY overpriced! There were several bars and restaurants. The food and drink we thought was very good with theme nights almost nightly at the buffet restaurant ( french, asian, mexican, etc). There was a HUGE number of choices for almost every palate. Breakfast also served made to order eggs/omelets, made to order crepes, smoothie bar along with pancakes, fruits, bacon, sausage, mexican fare and a huge array of other breakfast items. There are also ala carte restaurants which we went to the Mexican one and the Steakhouse. The steakhouse had probably the best t-bone steak I've ever had! YUM!

There was no shortage of things to do at the resort. There were activities daily along with the water sports area. They even had pottery/ceramics painting classes. Other activities ranged from air rifle shooting to water aerobics to olympics , beach and water volleyball and a whole array of other activities. Or you can just relax on the beach and listen to the waves. The beach was raked and cleaned every day and there was constantly staff going around cleaning up the beach of any drink cups etc. Very nice! There was also nightly entertainment for those so inclined.

I have to say though, the staff at the resort were outstanding and really made our time the best it could be! They were always so pleasant, helpful, and smiling. They worked very hard to ensure we were well taken care of! We absolutely loved the staff there and really, sometimes that can make or break a place.. and in this case, they made it!

My only complaint is how you pay for purchases at the gift store. You get your items, the ring it through, you either have to pay by mastercard, charge it to your room, or take the reciept to the reception to pay for it. Once it 's paid for you go back to the store with the signed reciept saying it's paid for to pick up your purchase. This wouldn't be so bad if there was a designated person at the reception desk dealing with this however, there isn't. At one time I had to wait 30 mins to pay for a purchase because a bus of tourists checking in had just arrived. The same applies for wanting to use the internet.. go to the store.. get reciept, pay at reception, bring back to store and then use the internet. Very inconvenient!!

I'm sure I'm forgetting more, but let me just say this place was amazing and I would definately recommend it to anyone! I would definately go back again myself!
Gorgeous soft white sand beach

Barcelo Maya Beach, Mexico Jul 29, 2010
A really nice all-inclusive that seems to serve alot of Canadians-not that it matters to me, but if all Canadians are looking for the same kind of thing... It has a very casual atmosphere, we really liked it. The food was very good-never got sick from resort food-and very, very plentiful. The beach was great and very large, with lots of chairs. The pool was great, too, with a swim-up bar, but there were never enough chairs there-we preferred the beach anyway.
Our room from the pool area.

Nice very lush gardens 4 out of 5 stars Nov 30, 2008
This resort is just a little off the beaten path of cancun.

It has a excellent beach,good food,and very nice surrondings,

good entertainment,and a good place for a resort stay.

There were only 2 draw backs it had a very hard bed,and its location is about a 15 dollar cab ride from playa del carmen but you could do a minibus for about 2 bucks. But overall pretty nice
