First I would like to apologize to Motel 6 for the insult. I just returned from the Barcelo Maya where my family stayed for a week. It is not the place to go if you are traveling with teens or older children. There is not much for the older kids to do. They are too old for the kids club... More

Barcelo Maya Resort is very big ( 5 hotels in one) but because of its smart layout, you can access everywhere easily either by foot or with the help of a tractor shuttle. Check in / out is quick and people working at front desk are efficient. We encountered some minor issues such as water leak and had to change... More

The resort was beautiful... The staff were unfriendly and the all inclusive wasn't truly inclusive. You had to pay $25 extra per day to get "mid level" liquor. The biggest issue was the staff and not feeling welcome. I will not stay at this resort in the future.

Poor service. Noisy construction. Only 4 a la carte reservations per week in dinners. Wines are extra cost. Food is average. No room service included. Last year we stayed at the Iberostar paradise beach, cheaper and a lot better.... way better. We are at the reception waiting for another room in spite of asking for it since yesterday. They seem...
