If you prefer fresh water, there are two expansive pools, each with its own Jacuzzi to ease away your cares.

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.

Hola todos, I went at this hotel in march 2015, I returned in January 2016, en December 2016 and I am returning next week on the 30th of January 2017. My room always been in the Maya Beach but always ate at the buffet Caribe. It is excelente food and the service always been excellent too. I would like to thanks Adelina Torres, Beatriz Berzunza and Gilberto Perez for the excellent service that they give also the superior Luis. They are always smiling, de buen humor, they are very professional. Also I want to thanks Minerva Chávez at the Rancho Grande restaurante, she is a superior always smiling and very hepful. I love this resort, very clean, relax and the beach is gorgeous! This is why I am returning for the fourth times in about two years. I am just excited to be there again in a week ! Marty XXX

Great Family Trip

We enjoyed our time spent at Maya Caribe. The grounds were well maintained and we love the location being on the far end with less traffic than the sister resorts. The beach was the longest and sandiest on Caribe grounds as well. We loved that we could access the other Resorts with the exception of the Premier Resort on the far end. We had stayed there before we had kids, and it too is exceptional, but not as child friendly as Maya Caribe. The rooms were also clean and well kept with easy access to the beach and pools. The staff were very friendly. The only reason I cannot give this resort a 5 star was because I am not so sure there wasn't a sewer pipe running out to the far side of the beach in to about 4ft. of water. There was a sewage smell in the water and we found a soft mushy warm spot in the water. Please keep in mind this is only my suspicion, but do stay on the left side of the beach when looking out to sea to avoid this spot. There is a lot of walking- my elderly mother did not care for that. There are shuttles that will take you to the mall, the water park and the other resorts, but you still have to walk quite a bit to get to the pools and beach.

Fantastic holiday in Barcelo

When you say you know how people in Mexico are friendly and how the water color is phenomenal, you DON'T! Barcelo offered us a vacation of our lifetime. Excellent food, long palm beach, drinks, you name it. Our room was satisfactory (could be better) and an entire complex is awesome. There are lots of activities for everybody, aerobics, pool exercises, dancing, Spanish lessons, kids disco, etc.. happening every hour on multiple locations. Our little baby enjoyed it also. The only drawback is that on our last day the country/rock festival was starting and a lot of party hungry people checked in day before. They partied all over the place and were really loud. Hotel should avoid organizing this kind of things if they want families to come back. Anyways, great job Barcelo and we will come back for sure and/or go to the other Barcelos in the Caribe.

Excellent from start to finish!

Room was very satisfactory, clean and comfortable. Enjoyed the balcony each evening. Grounds are beautifully kept, facilities are great. Can't imagine anyone could want more than what's available at this (these) resorts since you have use of the whole place. Beach is best at Caribe and Beaches end of the bay, Palace for the view. Never a shortage of chairs at the beach, and no insane "saving" of spots. Pools, pools, pools...lots, great and not crowded, even though we were there over the Xmas holiday period. Lots of activity for youngins. Only critique was the too strict requirement re "sport clothing" at the gym/spa. Don't expect to use this beautiful facility if you didn't pack name brand sneakers. Other sport footwear is not allowed...same ones I wear at my home gym...wanted to pump some iron to keep up with the great food, no such luck. No "appropriate" shoes for sale or rent on-site. Best part of our stay were the outstanding staff. Friendly, helpful and fun! Mornings with our friend Hassim Viana in the main buffet for breakfast was a treat that would make me choose this property again. Overall...one of our best vacations.

Partial inclusive hotel rather than all inclusive!

I made my family's reservation directly through the hotel and I was not advised that we could only have 2 a la carte dinners out of the 4 nights we were staying. I only found this out when I got to the hotel. On top of that we could not get reservations at the restaurants we wanted and actually had to get management involved since we were not given much choice. Customer service to book our dinner reservation was horrible. I also disliked the fact that we were in a tropical country and men had to wear pants to all a lá carte restaurant. Everything was charged extra including wine. You only had the option of red or white but no grape specification. A merlot or Cabernet would be charged extra. A sake at the Japanese restaurant was also not included with your dinner and would be charged extra. This is my 4th time in Mexico and I try to go once a year but Barcelo is definitely a hotel I'm not going back to nor recommending to anyone.
