We are still in the resort while writing this review. We decided to come here because we saw so many good reviews about this resort. But this is definitely not what we expected. The place is deserted, like a ghost town although (they claim) they are 90% full. Everything is perfectly manicured to the point that it looks completely artificial.... More

I liked the Colonial, however I found these items lacking......The maid did not clean the room thoroughly ( the same piece of leftover paper remained on the floor for several days ( I was curious and wanted to see how long it would remain there,several days later it was picked up), tables and countertops were not wiped clean either.

I'm late with my review... My husband and two teen daughters travelled to Barcelò Maya Colonial during March break 2014. I've been to several AIs in the past, including 4 on the Mayan Riviera, this one beats them all! We upgraded to be nearer the pools and ocean, we were glad we did. Our location was perfect, it was easy... More

We have stayed at this resort 9 times and have always enjoyed our selfs except the last time.. Found then customer service lacking. 1st timers would go and get what they wanted. We don't ask for much but if another room is available we would. Think we could get it.Tried to move our room closer to the beach and we... More

We just spent a week at this beautiful resort. we got a large and bright room on the third floor of the Juanato building. There is a large balcony overlooking a dense garden. The room is well equiped with a comfortable king size bed, LED TV, fridge (replenished everyday with water, beer, soft drinks), safety box. The ceramic floor is... More

You get a lot for your money at this resort. Staff is very attentive, bartenders are extremely generous. Food was the best i have ever had at an all-inclusive. specialty restaurants were included and were excellent. Only negative thing we could say is wi-fi should be free everywhere in the resort. Other than that we loved it!

My husband, I and our two kids stayed here November 26 for a week. The resort was beautiful, well maintained and the rooms were decent, although nothing fancy. We payed extra for the premium room. Wasn't much different from the other rooms other than the fact wi-fi was included. I will mention that only one person can use it at... More
