My husband and stayed at the Tropical March 6-13th. We had a very relaxing time. We meant to spend at least one day at the pool...but never made it there--the beach IS THAT beautiful. I simply read my book., listened to my MP3 Player, and sipped drinks everyday--which was my plan from the getgo! Our room was 7219. It was... More

I will stat by saying that the group I travelled with had a good time as did I, but the Barcelo left me wondering whether I would return again. I have travelled with my wife the Mayan on five other occasions ( Grand Princess x2, Bahia and the Barcelo Maya Beach, El Dorado) As well as other Mexican cities and... More

Just got back from a week at the Barcelo and it exceeded our expectations for Mexico. We traveled with our two daughters who are 8 and 10 and they enjoyed it as much as we did. We went to unwind and they went to have fun, everyone got what they were looking for at the Barcelo. Upon arrival at the... More

We went to the Barcelo Maya Tropical on February 21 for 2 weeks. I'll start off by saying that this resort is the best one that our family has stayed at to date (we have been to Riu, Melia and Bahia hotels). This resort is large but because everything is centralized it doesn't feel too big. The grounds were beautiful... More

This resort is beautiful. The rooms were clean and roomy. The is the only complaint it was terrible. We have travelled to lots of all inclusive resorts and have never experienced anything like this. It is usually easy to find things you like and stick with them if the food isn't up to par but there was NOTHING (except the... More

I just returned from the Tropical Beach for 6 nights 2/17-2/23. We were traveling with a 3 and 5 year old. The best part about the resort is the kid water park. They had a blast. The resort is very large and clean overall. But each day the bathrooms and restaurants would get dirty. There was no drink/pool service that... More

We Returned for our stay at the Barcelo Tropical on Feb 20th/2010 and had an excellent week. The service was very good except for the bar service. I think they need more staff / bartenders working as you had a lengthy wait most times to get served unless you went out of the way to go to a lobby bar... More
