Property and food was below average even for what you paid. The staff was not helpful with any issues that arose....we never had hot water and complained 3 times. Several restaurants required reservations and we were told they were booked up for all time slots for the week for 2 people. The next day our friends booked 2 dinners for a group of 18!?! How does that happen when they were completely booked.

Beach was beautiful and well maintained. Could use more staff due to high volume of visitors but I understand the difficulty of finding staff at this time.

I would have rated higher but switched from colonial to beach without explanation Resort stay was good otherwise Caribe pool is fun

Loved everything about the property and the staff. My only two complaints are that though we stayed 6 nights we could only get two alacarte reservations (one we had to pay up for). I am sure this has to to do with staffing, but would have been nice to have more opportunities outside of the buffet. Second is would love to have some evening outdoor music to relax to. If there was some, we never found it at the Colonial. Both minor things in the big picture. Again we had a great time!!!

The property is beautiful but the rooms could use a little updating.

Loved the variety of foods. Desserts tasted great. Wish there was a bar closer to the beach

We did not like the bait and switch tactics. We booked into the Maya Colonial. When we arrived they placed us in the Maya Beach. We then spent slot of time walking back and forth to the Colonial.

Service was rude tipped them $20 per dining buffet or room service, toilet was broken had to call 3 times, didn’t speak English. Food wasn’t good, the food depends how picky you are but we didn’t like it, cheap buffet food, Restraunt waiters weren’t very nice and we left $20 tips there as well.

Overall hospitality was exceptionally disappointing. Staff blamed COVID for their lack of planning ahead. This was our 6th time staying at a Barcelo property in Mexico, 3rd at this specific site and we have never been so poorly received. We don’t ever plan on staying on another Barcelo property due to the disappointing experience which is very sad as we were married at this location. Do better for your guests and be kind.

I would like to renovate the room Bracelet key

Super fun things to do. Property offers a lot. Had to ask for face cloths everyday from cleaning staff. Had no transportation to the resort

the resort and properties were extremely beautiful . the staff were not friendly , very short ,and many walking away stating I don't speak english , such a bummer

The facility in general is beautiful. The food was good too.

It was Clean

Good

Very friendly staff. This was my second time in four years and was not disappointed. Guest services was amazing in helping with car rental and COVID test scheduling. Private beach and pools. Food was buffet type but breakfast was the best. Take advantage of scheduling a meal at one of their restaurants with a voucher you get. Staff was masked at all times. Weekend was ‘fuller’ but weekdays were not if you’re looking for a quiet retreat.
