We were there from April 11-April 18 and had an absolutely incredible time! My oldest daughter is a senior in high school and we went there to celebrate spring break with her and many of her classmates. In fact, there were over 120 high schoolers, their families, and extended family and friends. Just in our group, there were 9 which... More

Very nice and clean resort. Unfortunately most of the staff were not very friendly or helpfull (even after much tipping, repeatly). Since this is an important feature for our family, we were a little disapointed. The food was excellent! Great variety. A lot of fresh fruits and salads.

My girlfriend and I have travelled to five different all inclusive resorts in the Mayan Riviera. 4 of the 5 priced lower than Barceló Maya Colonial. We have had nothing to complain about at any of the other places we visited. I always said," give me sun, sand, food and drink and if I complain after that I have too... More

Was not expecting 250 high school students coming in every few days, was really worried they were going to get alcohol poisoning or someone was going to get hurt, or be sick in the many pools. People seemed very miserable that worked there, tried to tip, didn't matter when we two older ladies went to the bar, had to wait... More

My husband myself and another young 40's couple went at the beginning of April for some R&R. I did a lot of research for this vacation. We have been to The Mayan last April as well. I had a hard time choosing between the 5 resorts within this Barcelo property as it was hard to know until you've been. The... More

We read a ton of reviews before booking this trip and were a little nervous about what we would find. My best advice... This is a beautiful, modern property and my feedback is minor compared with the overall experience which I would rate as first class, having traveled around the world. We booked a premium ocean suite for a week... More

We have been coming to the Riviera Maya for years and have stayed at many of the all-inclusives in Playa del Carmen as well as Puerto Aventuras where this resort is located. Although our needs have changed because we started out vacationing here as a young couple, and now we have two kids, 12 & 13, I feel we can... More

My wife and I stayed at the Maya Colonial between March 6th - 13th / 2014. It was excellent! This is our 2nd year at the Colonial. We enjoyed it so much in 2013 that we decided to book it again and come back this year. I'm glad we did. The staff treat you very well, the resort is spotless... More

We were here from March 27 to April 3, 2014. This is a very large beautiful resort which is very well kept. The grounds were beautiful. We were here during Spring Break but we were very fortunate as the section we were in, room (6217), 2nd floor, was very quiet. We usually retired for the night by 11 pm so... More
