First, and definitely not last, time!

We've stayed at many resorts throughout the Mayan, and decided to try a new one after 3 stays at our previous resort. We were given the wrong room configuration (no fault of Barcelo), and it was fixed immediately. The resort is amazing! Being in the Colonial section, we were really central to it all, but even if you are in the Beach section, it's not a far walk (less than 10 minutes between the two) The food is flavourful with lots of options, staff are so friendly, and there are lots of chairs around the pool and at the beach. The resort was full (or close to it) when we were there but it never felt crowded. The one disappointment was the Premium Level, which we upgraded to. It didn't feel like good value for the money in terms of the room, which felt like a standard room. Our toilet didn't flush properly and the hair dryer broke (they fixed it the same day.) Our mini-fridge wasn't stocked when we arrived, and they didn't re-stock it with beer daily. However, these were small disappointments - we fell in love with the resort and were sad to leave. We will definitely be back, and soon!

The strong points
Staff! Antonia made our stay memorable with her smile around the pool every morning. Food was great (buffet and a la carte), lots of options.

The weak points
People still throw a towel across chairs to reserve them, I wish they wouldn't allow this. Premium level perks were nice, but could be better. Mini-fridge wasn't re-stocked with beer daily.

Excellent Stay!

Our stay was incredible. Each staff member we encountered was wonderful! Everyone did all they could to ensure we had a great time. The facilities were all clean. The beach and pools are all great. The a la carte resaurants were wonderful. We had a great time and appreciate all the effort that your hard working staff put into their jobs every day. From the landscapers to the chefs, and customer service reps, everyone deserves a very hearty thank you from us.

The strong points
Staff. They were amazing. Loved the sea turtles at the beach. Hotel room was big and comfortable. A la carte restaurants were very good. Lobby staff was also very helpful. Great job by all.

The weak points
Room did have a musty odour but it did not change my positive outlook overall. We brought some anti humidity things with us that helped a little. Also the snack grill was a little weak in selection. Very minor compared to all the great points.

Barcelo maya colonial

I traveled with my wife and 3 boys (7,9.10) to this resort. We loved it here, the pools were great and warm! Lots of space. The kids water park was a hit with the boys. The beach was amazing lots if beach chairs, and always a spot to sit, no need to reserve a chair in the morning. Drinks were delicious! Food was good lots of variety at the buffet as well

The strong points
Great location Awesome beach Big pools Delicious drinks

The weak points
Not having wifi throughout the hotel and only certain hours Having to pay extra for the bowling, arcade games at the sports bar
