Guests have the option to reuse towels and sheets in order to conserve water and energy, and there is automatic, eco-friendly light control in public areas. Clean drinking water is enjoyed thanks to a reverse osmosis plant. Education stations are also available for guests to learn about the care of local ecosystems and wildlife.

The on-site nursery produces 90% of the plants used in local reforestation, while the 3,200 sq. ft. garden, "La Huerta del Chef", contains vegetables, herbs, corn, fruits and different types of chili peppers.

The resort incorporates fencing around nesting areas on the beach in order to protect baby sea turtles.

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!

Hello Travellers ! this is great hotel as all of the brothers along the bay its all the family of Barcelos, if you stay in this one you can go and eat or bath or so what you want in any of them, the beach at this coast is the best because theres almost no rocks. And you have a snot ithink its blue snot at around 500mts of the hotel. The staff is very friendly, and you have all included so you eat and drink when you want. The hotel is clean and well treated. You have a ton of things to do bowling, shopping every night theres someone singing or dancing,. Tons of fun recommend it! More>

Outstanding Holiday

The hotel is a huge complex which gives you the feeling of it being half empty most of the time. The beach and pool areas are fantastic and you never have any issues with finding sun beds pool side or on the beach. We did have an issue with our room when we arrived but this was sorted very quickly by our Virgin rep James who was excellent and always available when you needed him. The hotel and facilities are incredible, the staff were amazing, Rosa in the Tropical Pool side restaurant was attentive and always welcomed us each morning and lunchtime and Maria seriving drinks around the pool again worked tirelessly to keep us refreshed!! The gym and watersports were of high quality and the food in the buffets was always fresh with huge choice, and the restaurants which you have to book were all very good also.. Managed a spot of fishing at the South end of the beach and bagged a few!! More>

An amazing family vacation!

My family stayed at the Tropical for the second year in a row, and loved every minute of it! The resort is gorgeous, service is amazing, food quality and choices are excellent. We reserved Club Premium this year, and would definitely recommend it for the various perks. We participated in the morning yoga/stretching at the Tropical, as well as the water aerobics and evening dance classes. A big shout out to the guys and gals who led these activities. They are skilled and lots of fun! My kids were at the Teen Club every night, made friends, and had a blast! We tremendously enjoyed the a la carte dinners, especially the Teppenyaki at Kyoto and Tokyo. Went to Jaguars (adult nightclub) a couple of times. That was fun too! All in all, we had a great time, and were very sad when it was time to return home! More>

Couldn't have had a better vacation!!

We are from Harrisburg, PA....First I will tell you that we were supposed to stay at the Colonial / Tropical Beach resort and after only being there for half a day, I asked my husband to try to get us transferred to Maya BEACH! This is where we stayed 2 years ago and we wanted to have the same experience that we did before. Maya BEACH is our favorite because it isn't too spread out, it is easy to get to all of the amenities and the people that operate the resort are just TOPS! I have to mention our favorite people that treated us like their close friends... Irene Sanchez, Fredi Can, Carlos Petal, David Heredia and Victor Piste. (I apologize to them if I misspelled their names!!!) I want to tell you that THEY work SO well together and treat everyone like they are someone special. It is a hard job to be making drinks for people all day that just expect to be served...but they do it with such enthusiasm and charisma. I loved their personalities and I wish that they could be our friends in Pennsylvania. We WILL be going back again as soon as possible. Thank you to everyone at Maya Beach for making our vacation such paradise!! xo Doug, Marie & Savanna More>
