Barcelo Maya Palace is a fantastic place for families to get the most out of their Riviera Maya vacation. Kids will view the resort as a new world of fun with all the activities available. Besides the beach, there are many pools — one designated the “Activities Pool”, and another with a natural rock waterfall. Children also can play on the onsite water park, or meet other kid in the children’s activity program, the Barcy Club. Parents can enjoy luxuries as well, such as the onsite spa and tranquil adult swimming pool. Barcelo has an all-inclusive rate program that includes rooms, activities and meals at five onsite restaurants. The resort provides non-motorized water sports equipment, like kayaks and snorkel gear, and a miniature golf course is on the premises. Family Suite Deluxe rooms are spacious and have interconnected rooms, perfect for families.

This was my third trip to the Barcelo but first stay at the Palace. If you stay at the Palace you get access to their restaurants and premium booze. It does not get you a suite, hydro spa, free WiFi or free room service. I am OK with that but could not find that information prior to arriving so wanted to include that information for someone else. There is so much to do at this resort, it takes many trips to get it all done. They have an amazing beach where you can snorkel with the turtles and sting rays on property without having to book an excursion. They have fun day time activities you can participate in , not so many at night. Our favorite spot to hang out in, is over at the Tropical in the Tequila bar. Isabel Garcia normally works over their and she is another reason we keep returning to the Barcelo due to her friendliness and making you feel at home. She is the best, we just love her!!!!

The overall stay was great. The pools and facilities are top notch. The bars are very good. Restaurants are hit and miss, Caribe, Tokyo, Brasserie were great. Santa Fe and Rodizo were average. Spa is great Coco at the Spa was very good. The adult pool bars and bartenders were great. Front desk and check in takes a long time and seems like it could be improved. Overall a great stay.
