Fantastic Resort

We stayed at Barcelo Maya Tropical the past several years and would highly recommend. The resort is wonderful. I can't say enough about it or the staff. They are more than accommodating and try very hard to make your stay pleasant. A few I would like to mention are Isabella Garcia from the Tequila Bar and Esau Covvca Ramos, a Chef at the Tropical Buffet who we became friendly with over the years. A few others I would like to add are Flora Delgado from the Palmeras Grill, Angelo from Activities, and the staff at the Tropical Pool Bar including Leonardo Ficachi, Jose, Mario, Juan, Francisco, and their great boss Rene Garcia. Thanks for a great time.

Beautiful resort with great staff. Room was clean and spacious. Staff always made sure we had everything we wanted or needed. There was plenty of chairs at the beach. The pools were spacious and beautiful with a swim up bar. There was no reason to leave the resort. The All-Inclusive was well worth the cost.

Simply the best

We came here to celebrate our niece birthday. This resort is gorgeous justike my wife :)))) . Good food, very approachable staff, nice people, beautiful beach and pool. The family was here 4yrs ago and the improvements are undeniable. Can't wait to come back in a few yrs again and see what's new. Thanks to our everyday servers Carlos Ortiz (breakfast) , Antonio Morales(lunch by the pool side) , and Francisco (dinner Shift). Will definitely be. Back.

Spectacular Vacation Spot!

This place is wonderful. Super clean and very comfortable! The staff is very accommodating and they speak English very well. I would recommend this for couples, families or destination weddings. I've been to this resort twice and I can't wait to go back. In addition, the excursions that are available are wonderful and so easily attainable.

House keeping

House keeping was poor. Asked several for several days for coke lite, water and wash clothes. Finally had to find a housekeeper and get them ourselves. Removed robes and never replaced them. Dining services were excellent. Bar service was excellent. Pools and beach were remarkable. House keeping and wifi was our only complaint. Not sure if we will return to this resort or not.
