Arrived at the wrong hotel lobby(maya beach) at 4am in the morning shattered,luckily the porter took us along to the correct one(maya colonial) two hotels along....Got dropped off with cases right at door...perfect...
Opened room door and WOW what a stench mouldy, stale ,damp...i thought omg i can't handle this!!
Once we were in it wore off...the room(6113) was very well situated to all amenities pool/bar/restaurants/beach and of course the dolphins..
The hotel staff were polite but not over friendly in the dining rooms
Not enough to do at night for adults especially on our last 2 nights which the theatre was taken over and closed to the guests for a dancing competition ....Certainly not what i expected after paying out for a 5star accommodation for a big birthday treat .
The good thing about The Colonial was the buffet staff and management. The bad was poor room condition. Towels and Bed linen stained with blood and dirt. Mold on walls overall condition is extremely poor. It needs to be bulldozed and started again. It's dated and poor quality. If I was to come back I would opt for New Barcelo Riviera they are building. It looks fab and couples only. The noise from theatre was too loud. Drunk people walking back waking you up until 2 in morning.
