I know this is a little late but wanted to share my thoughts on this resort! My husband and I stayed at the Barcelo Maya Tropical May 13-19 2012! We had a fabulous time! I can't really complain at all. Everything was perfect from the check in to planning all of our 5 adventures out side of the resort.
Room: Our room was very nice, and got cleaned daily. One day we didn't close our safe (which had about $500's in it along with both of our Iphones) and the staff waited until we came back to our room to close it before they left, and nothing was missing. They did a great job of keeping the mini fridge stocked with snacks, beer, water, and some sort of hard alchol. There was also a bottle of wine wating for us in our room when we checked in!
Food: The one thing I would say was a downfall at this resort was that you can only dine at the resturants at dinner which means buffett for every other meal, which seemed to get a little old. The food was good, it's just if you ate at home at the same resutrant for 2 out of the 3 meals for six days you would just tired of the food. The resutrants were very nice and we were pleased with every meal we had and the portions were HUGE!
Service: The service was great every where we went. We did tip almost everyone that helped and I'm sure that was an incentive. I never felt that I was in need of anything because we were always getting service! Everyone was very nice, always saying hi!
Beach: They beach is very nice and had lot of chairs for everyone! The beach did have pretty sharp rocks at the bottom that could hurt your feet, my suggestion would be take water shoes or be careful! There was also this nice little pier at the end of our resort that lots of fish swam around and didn't care when people swam with them! It was frightful and awesome at the same time!
Pool: They pool was very nice! Very big where we never felt like it was too crouded. We only really hung out at the swim up bar, which got busy some times, but after you got your drink you could swim away to enjoy your drink in peace! It was always very relaxing and beautiful!
Drinks: We were on our honeymoon so we never wanted to get trashed, so we made sure that we never drank too much. I'm sure that if you kept a drink in your hand at all times that you would end up drunk. Some people say at all-inclusives that it's impossible to get drunk, which i'm sure they aren't using top shelp alcohol but it would deffinatly get the job done. I never felt the drinks were watered down. My favorite drink was the Miami Vice! DELICIOUS!
We had a great time and would go back! We are going to a diffent resort in May just because we want to experience something diffrent, but our next resort has high standards after this resort!
