Visited this resort end of sept 2014. It was great weather since it was off season there was less staff serving drinks but bars we're easily accessible. Food and staff were very friendly. Wifi was a bit expensive and spotty only worked in certain areas of resort.

Impressive cleanliness of the places. Very pleasant environment. The site is extremely maintained well by several discrete people. Everyone was pleasant and user-friendly. Food and the drinks were copious and it good.

This was our second trip, 2014 to the Barceló in Riviera Maya, Mexico. Weather was perfect, food, and drink great, even took a picture with Coco the resident monkey which the owner's took around the pool area. We even tipped the landscaping crew who kept the grounds spotless. The first trip was 2013 to the Tropical. WE ARE GOING BACK.

The Barcelo is four resorts in one on a white sandy beach about 20 minutes south of Playa del Carmen. We stayed at the Colonial part of the resort. The staff could not have been nicer. The women were all dressed in tight little skirts and looked fabulous. Everyone was pleasant and friendly. The food and drinks were plentiful and... More

We spent a week here with another family and had a great time. The resort is extremely well kept. I feel really bad for the guys cleaning up the seaweed on the beach every morning. The best part of the week was the snorkling right off the beach and pier. We found lots of different fish, a huge barracuda, multiple... More

Since we arrived, we felt at the hotel like in Paradise. The atmosphere and attention was simply excellent. The night manager Salomon was just "de maravilla" and made us feel very special. The hotel itself is simply huge with many restaurants and activities for all the day. Your don´t even need to go out to the city and can simply... More
