Has anyone stayed at the Barcelo Mayas with children under 10? Recommendations for which one to stay at? Also, if you have stayed there and at the Sandos or Rius, any preference on which to stay at with a group of family ranging from 4 years to 85 years? Thanks much.

The (5) resort Barceló complex is huge - one of the largest in the entire region - and stretches along almost 2km of beachfront. While not as large, you will find similar size issues at the RIU complex as well as the SANDOS complex. Keep this fact in-mind for the older members of your travel party.

The Barceló Palace, their Colonial/Tropical, and their Beach/Caribe each have their own Barcy Kids Club. But at present, the Barceló kids waterpark is found only at their Colonial as well as at their Palace resorts. The Palace one is exclusively for Palace guests under age 12 whereas the one at the Colonial is for any and all guests under age 12 staying anywhere on the resort grounds, and hence, gets quite crowded.

In the Puerto Aventuras area, two smaller resort recommendations suitable for the kids and the elderly in your party would be the Catalonia and the Dreams resorts, both within the gated marina section of town.
