This was by far my favorite hotel stay ever! The service here is better than anywhere I have ever stayed. The staff is very friendly, kind, helpful and prompt. No issues ever in getting a drink by the pool- there are plenty of waiters coming and going all day. They even bring you snacks in the afternoon ...
The location was walking distance to town. Which was nice. The beach area was really bad due to seaweed and erosion. There were people up to their knees in the muck and it smelled like a feedlot where they were cleaning it up by the wheelbarrows full.
This was our first visit to Barcelo Maya Palace. Great choice of speciality restaurants and as well as great buffet choices. Staff were friendly and accommodating and resort was beautiful and clean. Beach area is rocky, but you can move down by other adjoining hotels to go into ocean. We will definitely ...

This resort is perfect! The staff are extremely friendly, accommodating, and almost everyone we talked to were bilingual, which was very helpful. The food and drinks were also very good. I will definitely be back as soon as I can!
Fairly compact property with everything within easy reach. Staff are generally very friendly and hard-working. The service and amenities are not dissimilar to other Secrets and similar properties, but I would rate this resort somewhat lower. The biggest complaints are the limited food selection, ...
Great property. Food, Service and rooms are great. Unfortunately the beach has a lot of seaweed but hotel is working all day to try and keep it clean. Pool is nice.
