Qualified staff members organize entertaining activities for the smallest members of the family in the mini-club. Children are guided through games, competitions, drawing, handicrafts, movies, a mini-disco, mini-aerobics, and the brand-new U-Kids Spa.

By day, adults can join in a variety of sports, including tennis (day or night on floodlit courts), basketball, snorkeling, kayaking, windsurfing, and miniature golf. At night, enjoy the vibrant entertainment at the unique live shows and then dance the night away at Jaguar's nightclub.

Great vacation, it's our second trip to this resort. Everything is really good, from the food, the service, the facilities, the shows. One of the best we've been to, and we've been to quite a few over the years.

The resort was great in pictures. That was the only good thing about the resort. I would not recommend this to anyone. Room had many problems including spiders, ceiling leaking, smells from sink, etc. And that was with a change of first room. Disappointed in staff that was Not wanting to help. Language barrier definitely a problem. Manager of front desk did not speak English. Overall very disappointing!!!!

Our friend was already there when we arrived so met us at the lobby to tell us not to take first floor room due to smell and the bugs so we asked for 2nd. or 3rd. floor rooms and we got it.

Was sent to different hotel from the one I booked within the same resort. No apologies just said we donít have your reservation, go over there. Ask for two close rooms due to having young kids, they gave us rooms on complete opposite sides of hall. One of the rooms smelt so bad, we all ended up spending the night in one room because they claimed they didnít have any others. Next day they called saying they had a room opposite the room we slept in, got to service desk an hr later to be told they gave room away. Then they gave us a family room which costs less than the 2 rooms we paid for but we took it. Room was leaking. Didnít realize it till all my clothes in bag on floor was completely soaked. Food is mediocre at best. The pool is nice, beach smelt horribly. Wonít recommend this resort.

Jun 20 2018
This was my first all inclusive vacation. I was a little surprised that I had to make reservation for the "elite" food spots. I feel my money paid should allow us to eat at any restaurant at any time. I also had an issue with the beach towel set up.....I was given two cards and that was the only way i could have a towel. It rained most of our vacation so towels would have been nice - you had to walk a long distance to pick up your towels or return them!!! In the rain was no fun!!!! I understand controlling towel use but was very inconvenient.

We like Barcelo Maya resorts and stay there since 2009. Very quiet place, plenty of free space on the beach and by the pools, very polite staff, always good weather. We were pleasantly surprised by the extensive choice of food and drinks

Best vacation ever

I have waited 4 days to find the perfect words and yet at the end of the day, honesty is all that matters. This resort, overall, has the best service starting with check-in to check-out and every day in between. REBECA CANEDO (ext. 4004) did everything to make my vacation the best memory ever. Her kindness and hospitality was beyond anything I have ever experienced. A gift of a wonderful vacation. I was very leery at staying alone (sister/husband stayed in their own suite) on resort, but the comfort, the people who greeted me daily made me feel welcomed and at ease. The atmosphere around the resort was outstanding, helping create memories for vacationers to never forget. I can not stress enough on all that Rebeca did for me; the beautiful master suite with an ocean view was breath taking each morning as the sun rose. The Jacuzzi on the balcony was so relaxing. The buffets were outstanding, no one should ever leave hungry or with complaints for lack of variety. This is a resort I will definitely vacation at again. The lady who greeted me each morning, no matter her day or week, had the biggest smile on her face. She not only cleaned my suite but she also helped me with my Spanish and for that I am grateful. I never asked her name but we did stand for a selfie on my last day. Receba even took time to sit with me in the lobby and have a wonderful visit about our passion for dogs. How does a vacation get any better? Easy answer, stay longer !!! Thank you Barcelo Maya Caribe, Rebeca and everyone who made this vacation spectacular for me. From my home to your home ... Feliz Navidad y Pr√≥spero A√Īo Nuevo !!!! Blessings, Sandy Hetke
