My wife and I stayed at Barcelo Beach Dec 19-26. We are seasoned travelers who have been to at least over 20 (4* Minimum) all inclusive resorts including Breezes all over Cuba, Sandals, Punta Cana Princess, Riu Negril, Club Meds, etc... and have never been impressed enough to write a review.... Till Now.
Barcelo Maya Beach is a GREAT PLACE to spend your holidays, with or without kids...
Normally I prefer adults only places, but there was a GREAT kids program with tons of things to do for the youngsters which kept them busy and no disturbance at all....I highly recommend this place for kids of all ages....
Room- Excellent Bed, Rain Shower Head with great Pressure and TV stations galore. There were even free adult movies at night, If that is your thing. The free minibar was stocked daily and maid and turn down service was excellent.
Beach- Soft Sand and Turquoise water with snorkeling off the pier... I love to swim and hang at the beach and was very impressed with this set up. Even though the hotel was full, we always got chairs and a place in the shade under a tree, even though we arrived at the beach daily around 11AM.
Food- We ate at the buffet every day and was very impressed with the selection and service. There was a smoothie prep station with loads of fruits and veggies at every meal. Great touch. My only complaint, albeit a minor one, was there was no fresh squeezed OJ. for breakfast but it was made up for with the smoothies and great selection of food.
Drinks- All top shelf stuff included and there were Corona Taps Everywhere :)) with both light and dark versions... Ahhhh.
Nightlife- the shows were on par with most other resorts and the Jaguar disco on premise was allot of fun after the show. It usually had people there as it was used by all five resorts.
Shopping- Fantastic.... My wife spent allot of time shopping for Natural Stone jewelery and found some GREAT DEALS.. She is a professional shopper and was really impressed with the Kiosk owner and his sister who hand made all their jewelery at the kiosk and sell it for far less than what it would cost in Canada and great quality ... The Kiosk is at the End or Beginning of the Plaza Mexicana, which is between the Convention/Business Center and Maya Beach. Ask for Didier Chan ( He is Mexican looking, not Chinese) who is the owner and he will make/design styles just for you...
All in All I Highly Recommend this place for both singles and couples and would be happy to answer any questions if you need more info...
