We traveled with friends to the Barcelo Palace resort. They had every amenity we could have asked for. The rooms are spacious, large bathrooms with double sinks. There is alot of ground to cover, so bring your walking shoes. This was fine with us, because we needed to walk off some of the calories we ingested! The beach is incredible, you can walk forever! Snorkeling right off the beach was great. Food was fantastic, the Japanese and French were two of our favorites. Since we were traveling without children, we used the adult only pool when we wanted to lounge by a pool. There are great sleeping huts to get out of the sun as well. Great fitness facility.

The resort is grand to say the least. The service was great at all the restaurants and the staff is very friendly. The rooms and bathrooms are a great size, especially since you don't spend much time in them. The rental equipment is a long walk, but lots of fun on the kayaks. We wanted to use the water trikes, but it was to windy and choppy. The food was all good and the buffet had lots to choose from. Our favorite was the seafood restaurant (Mare Nostrum) great food and the wait staff was very entertaining. The pool is expansive and never had too many people in it. The pool bar drinks were just ok, but were not big drinkers anyway. The resort grounds are beautiful and very impressive, could not stop taking pictures of them. If you get the chance, go to Selvetica Canopy Tours, the kids most favorite part of our trip and lots of fun. We also went to Playa del Carmen for the day to go shopping and Xel-ha to do some snorkeling. Had fun at Xel-ha, but would not go back, had just as much fun snorkeling at the beach in front of the resort. Overall this resort is awesome and you should go as soon as you can.

We first visited Barcelo Maya Palace in December of 08 and absolutely loved it. Since my older daughter is entering college and won't be able to go with us later in a year, we decided to go in August. This time around we splurged on a Club premium package, so we got an ocean front room at the Oaxaca building, complimentary use of the Club lounge with free internet, drinks and snacks. It was great to remember where everything is, since we just visited 8 months ago. My son loved the kids club (Club Barcy), he really enjoyed all the activities. We enjoyed the beach. The water was beautiful, clear and warm. We saw fish swimming right by our feet and lots of turtles. The hotel is gorgeous. The staff was friendly and accomodating. The food was OK, breakfast and lunch were great, dinner was OK. As far as ala cart restaurants, we loved French and were not too impressed with the Caribbean. We highly recommend Barcelo Maya Palace to anyone who wants to really relax and be pampered.

I have visited the Riviera Maya several times and this is by far the best resort I have stayed at.

The location is approx. 1 hr & 30min from the Cancun airport by car. I always rent a car from the airport, the drive is an easy one.

The beach is awsome, swim with the sea turtles and feed the fish while you hang out in the warm Carribean for hours. The sand is white and the water is clear.

The pool, nice hang out at the pool bar, if you have kids they will enjoy the kids club and the water slide mini park.

Very close to many activities, including Mayan ruins, zip lining, eco parks and cenotes.

The food, buffet is great, many choices and some cooked to order.

Overall worth every penny.

My daughter and I took this trip both our first time to mexico & an all inclusive. I researched for months and decided this was where we should go. The resort was friendly, fabulos and accomadating. The food was so great and you always had so much to choose from. Every night was a different theme. We were handed glasses of champagne once when we went into dinner. Since we stayed 7 nights we were guaranteed 2 seats at 2 of the 3 speciality restuarants, of which were also wonderful. There was always some place to eat and plenty of it. The entertainment was top quality. Every night there was a different show and even a Miss Barcelo contest and some nights there was audience participation. The rooms were clean and fresh. Our mini fridge was restocked daily. We always left $2.00 in the fridge for the maids & they decorated our beds with animal towels. The only complaint was the bed which was so hard. I did call and they brought in a rollaway, so i slept on that. We had a view on the 3rd floor of the tropical jungle like area. All in all very impressive. The staff was great. There were people from all over the world who came back either every year or were returning past guest. This was a great trip and I felt safe enough that my 15 y/o would meet up with some of the new friends she had meant & go to the disco every night. You'll have a great time here, love the atmospher and the resort. I'd go back. Now they have added 2 more areas to the already great place. Kid friendly and adult areas as well. Prestine beach & water. Lots of things to do without even leaving the resort. I'm planning an apple square deal 5 vacation in 38 days to the riveria mexico. Very excited! I planned this trip with 2 of my girlfriends. Just wish I knew where we might end up. As long as it's a 5 star I guess you can't go wrong. I'd love it if anyone has recently done this could give some insight & or comments. Happy vacation!
