We stayed at the Barcelo Maya Caribe May 17-23. We had a wonderful time. My husband and I are in our mid-30's and we brought along our two kids, ages 8 and 4. I can't say enough about the kids waterpark area. It was awesome! The kids loved it and couldn't get enough of it. All the pools were amazing and super clean. The beach was gorgeous. The beach on the new side of the resort has more rocks and coral than the beach on the original side of the resort. I recommend watersocks for the kids. Snorkeling is great right off the beach. We also snorkeled off the pier and there were tons of fish. We heard people saw turtles and rays on the northern end of the resort. The food was buffet style for all meals, except the one or two nights you go to the sit-down restaurant. My kids are a little picky and they always found something to eat. The service was fantastic. The waiters were very attentive and friendly and everyone spoke English. The rooms were average, beds were a little hard. I highly recommend this resort to families with young children. If you are looking for a resort with a lively nightlife, this probably isn't the place for you. It's a great place to relax and just enjoy the beach, pools, and the beautiful grounds. Make sure you try the pina coladas...they are yummy!
