This is the second time my husband and I have travelled to the Mayan and our first time at the Barelo Maya Caribe. We travelled for the first time with our boys, age 13 and 10 from November 10th to the 17th. They loved the water park and Barcy club, where they could take a break from swimming and play... More

We stayed on the Caribe side from Oct21st-28th. It was VERY low season, only about 30% full, so there were ample chairs and hammocks and quite regularly had the beach (so it seemed) and pools to ourselves! Captain Morgans was closed for renos, as was the Caribe side of the buffet, but that made no difference...food was plentiful and good.... More

We just got back from the Barcelo. We had an excellent time. The rooms were clean. The food was very good. The grounds were beautiful and very well kept. All the staff was very friendly and helpful. There were plenty of chairs at the pools and on the beach. The shows were very good. The service at the bars and... More

The Barcelo Maya Caribe is a beautiful resort. You feel as though you are in a tropical oasis. I traveled with a group of five and used Entertainment Plus transfers from the airport in cancun. They were excellent. Our flight was delayed by an hour due to weather. A represenative was at the airport with a sign when we arrived... More

The nightly shows were very entertaining and the beach was beautiful. The hotel staff was very dissappointing and we tipped! Check in took hours and then we got a first floor room close to the lobby - all the workers would pass by as we tried to relax on the patio. We asked to be upgraded(we would pay more) or... More

If you are planning your honeymoon this is the BEST place to go. My husband and I stayed here from July 14-28 for our two week honeymoon and loved it. This was my first time ever going anywhere down south and staying at an all inclusive and it was the best experience. The staff service was excellent, they were so... More

We have just returned from the Barcelo and we loved every minute of the holiday. There is nothing that I could complain about. The grounds, beautiful and very well kept, always someone working. The food in the buffet was good always found something to eat and there was always plenty of food and choice. We did not try any of... More

We stayed here earlier this year with a large group. The worst part about it was the food. We dreaded every mealtime. The hotel groups were very pretty and the beach was conveniently close. The rooms were of adequate size and the beds were as hard as a rock (literally). If I were to return to this area, I would... More

Well for a first trip to mexico, this is one trip I will never forget. The Barcelo Maya Caribe was a wonderful hotel to stay at. The entire complex was immaculate, and the staff were very friendly.
