4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Had an amazing 2 weeks here after we moved from the grand serenis! Absolutely beautiful. Night life could do with a bit more boost but mostly a great stay. Room service is sooooooo slow!! But that's probably the worst bit. Gym is great really up to date, and lots of great facilities! Japanese restaurant is a must!

This is a great place to come as a group. It is not too expensive, the buffets cater to a lot of different tastes (not great but a lot of variety), and there are a lot of fun group activities. In Jan 2015 my husband and I went with 2 other couples and it was the most fun I've ever... More

We were at the Barcelo Maya Colonial from January 27th-February 3rd, 2016 for a wedding. The reviews have been pretty consistent, so there was little doubt in my mind that we were going to a great resort. Checkin-Took some time but that is because they are explaining certain things to people, otherwise it was organized. Hotel: Very well maintained, any... More

We had a fabulous view. Everything was within walking distance on the resort. We had a problem with the hot water the first day but it was fixed immediately. We will be coming back whether it is for another concert or just a regular vacation.

For us this was a fantastic resort. Lots to do on site and adventures off. Never crowded and beautiful beaches and pools. Restaurants: Definitely book your A La Carte dinners. We did 4 of them and they were fantastic. The buffets had so many choices there was never a meal you had to eat the same time. Although you will... More

Had a lot of fun, enjoy the food/restaurant, water sports, shows, daily activities, excursions, room is clean, pool is well maintained, very happy with the service. Only beach isn't as good as the Barcelo in Panta Cana.

We have enjoyed staying at numerous All-Inclusive resort properties on the Riviera Maya but must admit that the Barcelo properties in Puerto Aventuras are, thus far, our top pick. The properties are immaculate, the staff and pools stupendous, and the very loooong and gorgeous beach is totally awesome. We stayed at the Palace our first year there, then at the... More

We very much enjoyed this resort, food was great... Loved the Japanese.. Excellent facility for children of all ages, large resort with 4 sections spa was great, beach was beautiful. Entertainment staff were great. We have been here a few times over the years and each trip was great. A very well run resort.
