5 Star Service at Barcelo Maya Tropical buffet
mybadgers3, Hastings, Nebraska
Tue May 24 17:25:13 EDT 2016
My family recently spent a week at Barceló Maya resort in Riveria Maya, MX. The buffets were very good, but the service was excellent! Our server, Alfredo, and Gorge brought back customer service to a level not seen many places anymore. These two pull out your chair, place your napkin on your lap, and make sure you have everything you could possibly want in a dining experience. Alfredo quickly knew our names, and we could not wait to see him each morning for breakfast! Our last day, we took family pictures with these two! These gentlemen have made a long lasting memory for us on our vacation! Scott, Joyce, Jordan, Dillon, Emily, and Jake More>

My wife and I have gone to this resort six times, some with groups, some by ourselves and have never been disappointed. This year, 3/26/16 thru 4/3/16, we went by ourselves. We never seem to have any problems finding other very nice couples to dine or drink with. This is also "Spring Break" time and you might think there would be to much noise with all the kids. Most of the kids hang out at one pool bar, which leaves the rest fairly quiet. There are several bars throughout the resort, and you'll learn which ones to avoid because of kids. Never had problem finding one that was quiet. Their buffet has great food and is very well laid out. I can be picky about food, but never left hungry. If you love desserts, you'll think you died and went to heaven. They also have sit down dinners that you can sign up for, free of charge, but like I said, their buffets are so good, we passed on them this time. We usually do 3 or 4 sit downs but this year we passed. You have to schedule a day and time and it never fails, you bump into someone that day and are having a blast and don't want to leave at a certain time. The sit downs are something you should try though, they are very classy. Our rooms have always been clean and comfortable. We have stayed in suites and regular rooms, no problems with either. The whole place is kept surprisingly clean, considering some of the piggy tourist that think the employees are slaves and throw everything on ground or floors. If you're a smoker, listen up. Each buffet dining room has outside dining for smokers, 8 tables, which I think is great, yes I smoke. What I found to be quite funny, is how many times non-smokers would sit out there than complain cause someone lit up. I guess they couldn't read the BIG sign over the door. More>

Excellent vacation!

This has been the best vacation I have been on so far. The service is great. Everyone is very nice. The best dancer was Tomas and showed me great moves. Angel taught me how to play table tennis and was very friendly. I loved all the staff members Nashielly, Fernando, Tony, Bryan, Oscar, Emi and Esteban. I will definitely return next year! BEST 10 DAYS EVER! More>
