I stayed at the Barcelo Colonial from Nov 26/13 to Dec 3/13. It is one of 5 hotels in a complex about 20 minutes south of Playa del Carmen.
I have stayed at this complex about 5 times and the hotels are a good mid-range properties. The food is good, there is a good standard in the rooms, and the beach is excellent.
In the colonial the rooms are a junior suite which has a sofa and chair and desk. Safety deposit box is included free, there is tv, and internet is extra (580 pesos for a week of wi fi good in the room).
I ate in the buffet and the steakhouse (Santa Fe). I would rate both as good. But understand the beef in mexico is not as good as home. But for mexico, it is good. I asked for fries and they also have a baked potato but the menu does not show these but they have them.
I am a reader and you have to learn where the book exchanges are.
In the colonial, it is located in the premium room, just ask to be let in. There is also a small bookcase in the internet room at the pool.
In the Tropical, it is located in the premium room.
In the Caribe, it is located in the premium room, with a bookshelf tucked in the tour room.
In the Palace it is located behind the employee in the internet room. They never give me a hard time about not staying at the palace.
1. Use the hot tub located in the gym
2. The sandiest beach is in front of the maya beach
3. Use the collectivos (vans) to get into playa or the ruins of tulum
I had an maintenance issue in the room and it took 3 times complaining to get it fixed...frustrating. But it is still a good hotel.
