This was our second visit to the Barcelo Maya resort complex. We stayed there in August of 2008 and July of 2009. Our group included Grandparents in their 60's, parents in their 40's, and three teenagers. There is something to do for everyone. There were plenty of activities for the teenagers to get involved in. They played beach soccer and water polo everyday. There were dance lessons and spanish lessons as well. There is even a mini-golf course. The teenagers also enjoyed the water trikes. But we could always find a quiet place to read a book or just relax as well. The food is good. Some of it is excellent. No one in our group ever had trouble finding something to eat. The staff is very friendly, but professional. Some of them are extremely overworked. There were times we wished for faster bar service, but that is really the only complaint I can come up with. The snorkelling right off the beach is good. We saw beautiful tropical fish, a stringray, a reef squid, and even a sea turtle! All that and we never went outside the ropes that mark the swimming area!
My husband is the diver of the family. He really likes the dive shop here. They are well respected and multi-lingual. He always felt safe. They went to great dive spots. He saw turtles nearly every day, as well as sharks.
The grounds are beautiful, and well cared for. Lots of greenery and flowers. There are covered walkways between the buildings. That really helps when it rains, but also keeps the hot sun from beating down on you. The place is big, so you will walk a lot.
We can't wait to go again!
