My experience wasn't great. Our first room, the toilet, tv and AC were broken. I had to ask 4 times to be switched to a different room. The hotel staff is average at best. They don't speak English well so they can't understand your questions. They wait staff at the buffet and bartenders at the pool weren't attentive at all. The buffet food was horrible. We didn't really eat much all week. We lived on fruit, salad and bread. The dinners in the restaurants were decent. The only restaurant I wouldn't recommend would be the Mexican one. The others were good and wait staff was attentive. I would not return to this hotel.

5 Stars Hotel Best Services Best People!

Posted Jul 10, 2017
We just came back yesterday (07/06/17) from 4 days stay at Bacelo Maya Caribe. I don't understand ppl who could gave less than 5 stars after all Best services from ALL Barcelo Crews who treat you like king&queens from front desk,guest office,buffet waitress ,specialty restaurant,room services,housekeeping,Bartenders and every single one of them. After we start checked in like 12:30pm they allowed us to explore the hotel & buffet free drink. Tequila for me!! Oh yeh!! then we got a room key at 3pm. From this Hotel you can access to all other 3 hotels activities,buffet,pools,bars such as Barcelo Colonial,Tropical and Barcelo Beach resort. We love the pools and Jacuzzi from Barcelo Colonial that connect with Barcelo Tropical.It was Hugh giant pool. All hotel ate walkable but they do have troller,Bus goes around all hotel every 10-15 mn. The foods at buffet has so many variety to choose. I miss my tacos already!!! You can find food everywhere at all this hotel they even have 4 buffet next to the beach!! What else can you ask for. Bar Swim up pool are everywhere. Super fast service as well. At the buffet we must send this special thanks to Joel Hernandez, Darinial Gomez, Flor At swim up pool bar we must special thanks to a young man Mr. Abimael Kuyoc Cen . Thank you for you treat and best services. Overall this hotels has everything you need all activities, snoggle,boating,sailing,catamaran,dolphin,beaches,bowling bars,and many more for you. We love this hotel!!

Failed to Meet Expectations

Posted Jun 28, 2017
Pros: The wait staff at the pool, the whole wedding experience, and the beach.
Cons: The reservation process was truly the most disappointing thing. Maybe having you reserve a few places when you check in to guarantee spots.
Location: The resort is huge so I'm sure there were things we didn't get to fully see and enjoy. We did oen night in Playa Del Carmen which was nice
My stay was from 6/22 - 6/27 for a friend's wedding. PROs: 1. The staff at the pools were amazing, especially Jose (name tag said Carlos) who was an all-star. 2. Wedding on the beach and the meal during the wedding were fabulous. 3. Beach is really nice. CONs: 1. The hot water was out for 2 days. I called a few times and each time they said it would be back up soon but they refused to offer any type of compensation. 2. Reservations at the specialty restaurants were impossible to get. When checking in, they told us we couldn't make reservations until 24 hours prior to the time we wanted, however, when we tried making reservations, there was no availability. The buffets get old really quick. 3. On 3 days, there were no towels available by the pool/beach. We went several times throughout the day and they were always out. 4. When checking in, they did not take a credit card. During one of our dinners at the buffet, we upgraded our wine and when it came time to pay, I couldn't pay at the buffet and had to walk all the way up to the lobby to pay. 5. Music at the pool were repetitive and played several times throughout the day.

Bad outweighs the good

Posted Jun 1, 2017
Facility is relatively nice but staff are not friendly and overworked. Wifi is only available during certain hours and certain locations. Food is great, beach is full of seaweed. Not planning to head back
