I stayed for 1 night only with my girlfriend and was told that dinner in non-buffet restaurants was not included for us as we didn't stay a minimum of three nights even though this is not specified in their website as you could see from the attached screenshot. The food in the buffet is not very good and we only... More

We spent two weeks of pure indulgence at Barcelo Maya Colonial. There were four hotels on the property that we could use. The food was international cuisine and was spectacular. Eating venues included buffets, beach grills and specialty restaurants. There were plenty of bars to get drinks and snacks. The staff was friendly and catered to our every need. The... More

Stayed here for a week in late June. Had a good time overall. The food was ok, and the evening restaurants were excellent. The hotel grounds are extremely clean. The beach is wonderful and the nicest I've seen in Riviera Maya. The hotel is doing some construction work but the temporary gym is perfectly functional (you would never know that... More

This resort was amazing! It was our first all inclusive experience and we wouldn't go anywhere else! Attention to detail is amazing....staff was constantly cleaning and mantaining. This is a must as the grounds were huge! Dolphin exhibit on site and spa. Food was great! Pay for the colonial. You won't regret! Bring some cash for tips at the bar.... More

Stayed here for a week with family in early June. Good points and bad. I recommend that, if possible, you upgrade to the Club Premium status as it will give you more dining options and access to rooms with computer access and food/drinks throughout the day/night, and also top shelf liquors. The resort is huge and 4 different Barcelos run... More

The Barceló Maya Colonial is a wonderful family resort that has something to offer everyone - great beaches, clear beautiful water, snorkeling right off of the beach, good rooms, malls, bowling, putt putt golf, etc. The complex is actually 4 resorts in one meaning you can try out tons of restaurants, specialty restaurants, beaches and bars. Our group included ages... More
