They always have a plan. they are very good at it...

check out http://www.unofficial-barcelo-maya.com/site/ in the forum section...

on the Barcelo facebook page they wrote..

As part of our commitment to offer the best quality to our clients, we have decided to invest heavily on the renovations for different areas of the Resort, that will start from May 6th and will continue until December 8th of 2013. Among the planned improvements are a complete renovation of Barceló Maya Beach and Barceló Maya Caribe lobbies; new bars at both hotels and two new a-la-carte restaurants. Additionally, the complex will feature a new Barceló Maya Entertainment Center, complete with a sports bar, bowling alley, teen disco, new kids club, waterpark, paddle tennis courts and redesign of the 18-hole miniature golf course, among other entertainment components.

There will also be upgrades made to the internal infrastructure of Barceló Maya Beach and Barceló Maya Caribe to provide guests with better access to the facilities and more amenities. The renovation’s first phase includes:

- Expansion and modernization of the lobbies

- Construction of a new Lobby Bar

- New Premium Lounge Club

- New hospitality area

- Construction of roofed areas to access all buildings

- Renovation of the buffet restaurant

As always we would like to thank you for the support to the improvements which hopefully, you can soon enjoy

The lobby is gone as well as the buffet. The pool bar closed yesterday and Rancho Grande Grill is closed. Some rooms at beach are being used and the Caribe is open.Lunch is at Captain Morgans (crowded and poor)

Caribe pool is the party pool, not fair closing beach bar. Barceló is losing track and is going downhill.

We were at Colonial and the buffet was poor.

Is the renovation affecting the Colonial section? I mean more people from the other sections there, crowded bars, buffet, etc?

We are going in a couple of weeks to the Colonial and this is definitely concerning.
