Ideal for families, couples, and scuba divers, Barcelo Maya Beach & Caribe is located on what is commonly considered the finest stretch of pristine beach in Riviera Maya. Stroll through the abundant, Mayan inspired grounds or dive and snorkel in the glass-like ocean, exploring the second largest barrier reef on Earth. If you prefer fresh water, there are two expansive pools, each with its own Jacuzzi to ease away your cares. This lush resort complex is conveniently close to one of the most popular tourist attractions, the 3000 year-old ruins at Tulum, the only Mayan archeological site on the Caribbean coastline.

With accommodations decorated in the purest Caribbean style, these cheerful rooms are comfortable, open, and all have a balcony or terrace overlooking verdant gardens or the azure sea. Enjoy access to international dining in sixteen restaurants including four distinct buffets, Mexican and Spanish cuisine, four beach restaurants, plus access to fourteen bars strategically located throughout the complex. You'll never be hungry because the Barcelo All-Inclusive program offers 24-hour availability of snacks, meals, and drinks.

Families can enjoy maximum freedom, choosing from among a wide range of activities for the whole tribe, including a gym, shopping, and the luxurious U-Spa. 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. In addition, you are free to access facilities in the pools and beach area of the Barcelo Maya Colonial & Tropical, immediately adjoining your hotel.

With something for everyone, Barcelo Maya Beach & Caribe awaits your family for the vacation of a lifetime!

Beautiful Beach

This hotel was nice and the beaches were beautiful. The previous year I had stayed at a resort a little closer to the Cancun airport and the beach there wasn't nearly as nice. The hotel was very clean, room service was good, and the staff friendly. The buffet was pretty good though quantity of dishes offered over quality I think. But lots of great food and i got to try some dishes i had never heard of. The mixed drinks down by the beach included in the all inclusive package were pretty weak and generic and the busy bartenders seemed a bit stressed but polite enough. My vacation package came with an inclusive meal at one of the restaurants every 3 nights spent at the hotel. I actually think the buffet food surpassed the restaurant food. The hotel itself was beautiful and there were lots of shops with beautiful local items. We took several excursions, and our travel coordinator, from Lomas travel, was the best! He really went out of his way to understand what we hoped to experience during our vacation and he set trips up for us that were absolutely wonderful and the highlights of our trip. I would return, it was beautiful and relaxing and for the money spent, the trip cant be beat. However my main complaint that may prevent me from doing so was that I was scammed at the hotel's gift shop in the main lobby across from the check in counter. I had bought a beautiful ring for $195. It needed resizing. The jeweler cracked the stone that was in the setting during the resizing process. I had to argue to get my money refunded. The salesman, different from the one who had sized my ring, was angry at the other salesman saying he makes customers upset often by being untruthful about what they are selling, such as telling customers something is solid gold when in actuality it was plated. I couldnt believe the salesman was telling me this which was wby I asked to have my money refunded instead of exchanged for a different ring. I didn't want a fake piece of jewelry which the salesman just admited was part of their inventory. They eventually ran my credit card for the refund transaction on the last day of my visit. When I returned to USA I discovered they had not refunded my money. I called the resort but no one would help me, the gift shop even hung up on me. I have a dispute of charges filed with my bank but the credit card slips were printed with cheap ink which has just about completely faded away. So, overall, the hotel was a great place for a family vacation, but after being scammed right in the hotel lobby gift shop I couldn't help but have a different opinion overall. More>

GREAT PLACE!!!

The resort is amazing, the food was great but the best part was the entertainment guys around the pool! They kept the part alive and included everyone. They were the life of the party. Shout out to Charlie (Carlos) for being the funniest one around! Would highly recommend this resort! More>
