My spouse and our 3 month old baby were at the Barcelo Maya Colonial from feb.1st to 8th 2016. We have absolutely nothing negative to say about this place. The complex is huge (3 hotels in one place) and you get access to many delicious restaurants and buffets. There is always something to eat so if you are hungry at... More

second time to this property. Not by chance, if we are going to stay near Playa de Carmen, we will stay here. My only complaint is the lack of towels through our whole stay. We started out with face, hand and bath towels but after 3 days we never received face towels and seldom received hand towels. One day we... More

I stayed in Barcelo on November 14 last year. I have to say that the hotel is huge, is like a mini city. You have many activities to do in this place. The pools are beautiful, the beach is just amazing, the people are extremely kind. My room was beautiful and we were there for a wedding of my friend.... More

Recently returned from 12 days at the Barcelo Colonial. Had a very nice relaxing time. Resort was quiet, although this could be because resort was only about 50% occupied, and service was good. Special thanks to Gustavo Morales Bautista at the Tropical buffet and Antonia Mex at the Colonial pool bar for their great service. Always looked forward to seeing... More

Rooms are clean and nice, beautiful pools, for kids and a adult pool. Lots of lounge chairs available, never a issue getting a lounge chair in late morning. The restaurants where outstanding great food and amazing service,... More

So far my wife and I have visited this resort twice (2014 and 2015). In 2014 there was some renovation work being done throughout the resort so there was a lot of construction. In 2015 we were amazed at everything that had changed since we had last been there. The grounds are immaculate and the restaurants are fantastic (our favorite... More

We needed a different kind of Christmas this year. So when we saw this come up in searches, we booked! It certainly didn't disappoint ! We had a beautiful, clean room with a comfy king bed and balcony. The cleaning crew were impeccable and the grounds were pristine! We found the staff friendly and helpful everywhere! The food everywhere was... More

My wife and I recently spent a week at this resort and enjoyed it very much. We had a very 'leisurely' vacation and spent most of our time lounging (and hammocking) around the pool . i am just going to list the good and the not quite so good points we found. First and foremost, ALL the staff were very... More

Huge hotel with lots to do and two weeks were easy on the pocket book. Food was great in all 10+ locations with options to go everywhere with different foods so you're not always eating the same thing. Down side, is that it could be hard to locate someone who understood what a peanut was. The resort is well maintained,... More
