    Resort is BETTER than any you will find along the Yucatan

    Let me start by saying we are very picky about where we stay. We generally would not pick all-inclusive resorts, however Barcelo Maya Beach Caribe is deserving of all the accolades it receives and then some!This was not our first visit and I held off writing a review to make sure they were consistent in their service. WOW is how I can describe this hotel and its staff. The were consistent and even bettr, I believe. First of all at upon arrival, you are greeted with one of the BEST bell boys ever, his name is Javier and he takes excellent care of all your bags and when he comes by room to deliver your bags, he asks if there are any questions he can help answer, for instance, how to work the fans, tv's, where the beach towels are, how to set up the safe, order room service, ect. He really goes way above just delivery of your luggage. He even arranged taxis for us and spoke to the drivers on our behalf, about costs ect. That is so impressive and refreshing.Javier is the happiest guy on earth I think, smiling and warm every time you see him. Great energy. Secondly,check-in at the Club Premium desk is such a treat The wonderful and friendly girls working the desk are simply amazing. So helpful and friendly in every way possible, explaining all the property lay-out, restaurants, reservations, directions, shows, name it and they explain it all to you in such a lovely friendly way. The rooms are so nicely appointed and all very clean. Our daily cleaning was impeccable and our housekeeper accommodated every single request we had. Now let me mention the food the food. The options are limitless.Captain Morgans serves up delicious hot and fresh buffets (amazing job on keeping the line fresh and hot) the Manager is always walking around checking food temps and freshness.Our server was so sweet and so efficient, his name was OBED and he is there to serve you with a huge smile on his face everyday. Thank you for being so kind and running around to get everything from ketchup to steak sauce for us. Basically everyone at the Caribe has clearly been trained to ensure they meet everyone's expectations and their level of service ensures you will have the best vacation ever. If you come here, upgrade to the Club Premium, as it is so worth it. All I can say is THANK YOU, THANK YOU to all at the staff at the Maya Beach Caribe for making this a memorable vacation for us. The only CON I have is, you will dream of this place over and over until it is time to return and I promise,you will want to return over and over. We do.

    Wonderful resort to stay while in Cancun, Mexico

    Great choice of food in a comfortable relaxing environment. You can walk around between different resorts or taking a shuttle to other facilities and locations. Night time entertainment/show is enjoyable to watch.
