We had booked the Barcelo Maya Colonial as a last minute trip when another trip was cancelled unexpectedly. We booked through our travel agent and the tour operator was Air Transat. We had a very good experience from Check In at the hotel to Check out. Very clean resort, staff friend and work so hard. Food was excellent. Highly recommend... More

My husband and I spent two fantastic weeks at the Barcelo Maya Colonial from March 21 to Feb 4 and had a great time. The resort is part of a very large complex of resorts, all of which you can access except for the Palace restaurants. Yes, tons of walking but if you're staying any longer than 7 days it's... More

We booked a short 5 day trip to this resort. We've traveled this area many times and stayed in many different resorts. The Barcelo Maya was a good choice. We had actually booked the Caribe property, but as you'll find, when you arrive people are often shifted between the four properties regardless of which they booked. When we arrived at... More

The resort is beautiful. The lobbies and pools sparkle and the white sandy beaches and turquoise water were Heaven. We loved the shows, specialty restaurants, the Mexican Market, shops and especially the variety of pools to choose from and of course the beach. Our room at the Colonial opened up to a beautiful, grassy jungle area. It was fun to... More

This is a very good resort and is in a multiplex with 4 other Barcelo resorts. The positives: The buffet was very good and we ate there for breakfast and a couple of dinners. They had snack restaurants at poolside and that was very convenient The pools are within 75 feet of the beach sand and that is very cool... More

We had a wonderful week at the Barcelo Maya Colonial. Check-in was fast, the room was clean and spacious, with the bathroom fully stoked and the minibar full of drinks and some snacks. The resort is very large but it is perfectly well kept. We never saw any garbage and glasses left by inconsiderate guests were promptly removed. The gardens... More
