We really enjoyed our stay at Barcelo Maya Beach Resort. Food was very good, all the selections of different buffets were excellent and access to the water-park was a 5 star bet. If you like walking this is a place for you. You can find anything in this resort, great entertainment; nice beach and a little mall with all you need souvenirs. I would definitely recommend this resort to families with kids.
The only reason this hotel did not get an excellent note from us was poor service when check-in. Switching the room was even more difficult. The ladies at the desc were not friendly and some of them had no idea what they were doing. We had to wait 4 hrs to switch rooms! The room service was not very responsive either. I once asked for juice as the fridge was not refilled that day and we waited 2 hrs to have the juice delivered.
