My husband and I came to Barcelo Maya for our honeymoon during the month of October. It was by far the most amazing trip we have ever taken. The grounds were gorgeous, pools spectacular and the all inclusive food was delicious.
Rooms: Extremely clean and has everything that you need. Flat screen TV, nice bathroom, toiletries, etc. The only downfall was the comfort of the beds. If you like a firm bed then you are golden. It is definitely not a pillow top mattress! Stocked mini fridge daily with everything you could ever need should you get thirsty/hungry late at night. Upon arrival we had a bottle of champagne and a fruit basket waiting for us which as a very nice touch. We had a view of the gorgeous garden surrounding the property. Honestly we didn't spend much time in our room at all so it didn't really matter how nice the room was.
Food: SOOO GOOD. My husband and I are definitely foodies and we really enjoyed every meal that we had. Although we had the all inclusive buffet most nights we also had meal tickets to enjoy some of the restaurants around the resort which was so nice. The only bummer was that not all of the restaurants were open that we wanted to visit. Overall, we were totally satisfied.
The Experience: AMAZING! We loved every minute of our trip. From relaxing on the beach and in the pool, to the entertainment, to the friendly amazing staff. It was wonderful. We had fun exploring this massive resort which had multiple hotels within the resort. Even though I am not sure if we were supposed to or not we definitely used the different pools enjoyed all of the amenities. The Beach and Caribe were probably the least expensive of the lot, and not quite as fancy but still extremely nice. There is so much to do at the resort....tons of activities, games at the pool, and lots of things for the kids to participate in. NOTE: If you are an adult do not go down the children's waterslide. I saw several different guys make this mistake and they suffered scratches from the bottom of the pool. There is definitely a sign posted but after a few drinks its easy to forget how to read I guess. We also got to enjoy kayaking which was included with our stay. This was so much fun. Another great thing that we decided to do was rent a car for the day from the resort (SMOOTH EASY PROCESS) and travel to the Tulum ruins, went snorkeling at Yal Ku lagoon in Akumal, and visited a cenote and went zip lining through the forest. (great addition to the trip) I would recommend this resort for couples, family trips or a trip with friends. You will not be disappointed. Barcelo Maya is an amazing resort and really goes above and beyond.
