Nice Stay
Dave5068, Olathe, Kansas

We stayed for a week at the Barcelo and had a very nice time. The rooms, grounds, pools and lobby were clean and well maintained. The daily breakfast buffett was very good and had a wide selection of items. We had dinner at the specialty restaurants in the evening and they were good, but not great. The worst meal was at the beach buffet during lunch, everything was cold and the service was terrible. We never went back to that particular buffett. Overall the food for lunch and dinner were fine. The pools and the ocean were great. Had a very relaxing week. More>

Hand, foot, mouth disease

This is our 7th time down to the Riviera Maya. This Barcelo Tropical is beautiful. The food is amazing and the staff are amazing. They have several little water parks and a larger ($) water park for the kids. However I have two issues: My family of four caught hand foot mouth disease from this resort. Upon searching there have been several reported cases at Barcelo. We've never had health issues anywhere else in Riviera Maya. The entertainment is horrible. There is nothing that was enjoyable to do in the evenings except take the kids to the kids disco, go their over priced "mall", go to their over priced "market" or go back to the room and watch a movie (I brought a bunch of movies and HDMI cable) Seriously though - Google HFMD it is very unpleasant. Barcelo will argue it could have come from anywhere / anyone (as they have in previous posts) but seems very coincidental that this resort continuously has visitors contract HFMD. More>

Great trip!

Went to Barcelo Maya Beach resort last week. Had an amazing time! Carlos Can at the pool bar at the Tropical was the BEST! We made a point of going to see him everyday. He was fun, chatty and blended the perfect margarita! He made sure we had a great visit. Go find him when you're there! The beach was beautiful! Great sandy area down by Barcelo Beach and perfect for snorkeling around Tropical/Palace. I will definitely be returning! More>

Had an amazing time with 11 other ladies at the Barcelo! Booked at the Beach but was put in the Tropical which was perfect! The beach is spectacular with snorkleing right there - highly recommend booking at this property (its my second time there). Food is good - we loved Esav Coirea at the omlette station each morning who was always smiling and professional! For $5 per person, we enjoyed a dinner at the Palace Buffet. We also enjoyed Tokyo, Italian and the Steakhouse. The younger spring breakers were there only part of the week - while they were not too bad, it was a little more peaceful when they were gone! We booked a half day catamaran tour through Gabrielle at the excursion centre in the lobby - she is lovely to work with and the catamaran was the highlight of our trip! We went for dinner into Playa del Carmen one night (about 30$ each way in a van) and had a spectacular aftersun body wrap the spa on our last night. We paid for wifi to keep intouch with our families at home but its quite patchy and only one device can connect at a time. Cannot wait to return for fhe 3rd time! More>

Exceptional service at Barcelo Tropical Buffet

Just returned from a week at Barceló Maya Beach and we loved every minute that we were there. One person did stand out among the rest while we were out to dinner one evening at the Tropical buffet and her name is Guadalupe Garcia. She was so friendly and professional with a great laugh and we really enjoyed her service and professionalism. I mentioned this also to her manager Genaro Gonzales. More>
