We stayed 2 weeks at Barcelo Maya Beach from June - June 26, 2014. The overall experience is very good but not great. The check in was quick and smooth, We got room that we requested at the time of booking, no questions asked.
The resort grounds are exceptionally clean and well kept. The beach is fantastic. White powdery sand, lots of palm trees for the shade and plenty of sun beds.
We had a room on the second floor in Uxmal building and we had no issues with it what so ever. The room was cleaned every day and the fridge was stocked twice a day. The staff was friendly and professional.
First week we were there the food @ the buffet restaurant was way better than we anticipated. You could tell that food was made fresh every day and there was a lot to chose from even for the pickiest eaters.
The second week things got little busier at the resort and this is where things started falling through the cracks. The food didn't taste so good any more and you could tell it was prepared well in advance. It was more difficult to get clean table and you had to wait for the service.
There are only 2 a la carte restaurants and we didn't like either one of them. The food tasted like it was cooked two days ago and just re-heated in the microwave.
Lobby bar was consistently good in therms of quality of drinks, coffee and overall service.
We had no issues with the safety. I had a haircut at the spa and it was okay experience but nothing out of the ordinary.
The evening shows at the theatre exceeded our expectations. The production was on much higher level than one would expect at the place like this.
If you are a beach lover, this resort is for you. The beach is gorgeous and it`s only few steps away from any room in any building.
We made a mistake and booked a trip to Playa Del Carmen via Lapis Jewellery. That was to say the least not so nice experience. They keep you there for good hour trying to sell you overpriced silver. The sales people are very pushy and they make you feel very uncomfortable .
In the summary we had a very nice vacation and we would not mind going back to this resort.
