    Decent resort but needs some work

    We stayed at Barcelo Maya June 8-17. My husband and I brought 4 young adults ranging in age from 23-17. For this reason we wanted a large resort with lots of activities to keep our kiddos occupied. Barcelo was a good choice, but there are some things I felt could use some attention. Glows: -Check in went smoothly. We had 3 rooms. I didn’t make any requests, but we all ended up close together. -Air conditioning worked really well! Housekeeping checked the room daily. -Grounds and beach are really nice. Because of the size of the beach and the number of pools, you can always find somewhere to sit. -We were able to get reservations for dinner for 8 nights as long as we were pretty flexible. We had great service at all of the restaurants. Grows: -Our room refrigerator was never stocked unless we left a note with a tip. They do not seem to have wash cloths, so you’ll just have to use hand towels to wash your face. 2/3 of our rooms had robes…not sure why one room didn’t. -There is no beach service at all and they will not allow you to take food out of restaurants. -You’re required to use towel cards to get towels. This is a huge pain, in my opinion. -Many waitstaff/bartenders we encountered weren’t real friendly. This may be due to the volume of people they encounter in a resort of this size. -Having to pay for a lot of the “extras” was not ideal. Having already spent quite a bit for our group of 6 to stay there, we really didn’t want to drop an extra $100+ a day. We’ve stayed at other resorts of this size that didn’t charge for bowling, flow rider, mini golf etc. Overall, this is a decent resort if you’re flexible, not too picky and don’t mind paying for some of the extra activities at the resort.

    Worse resort ever!!!

    Check in was horrible. Everyone is in a bad mood and rude! Especially jose. He didnt even let me complete sentences. Every worker in this hotel is bored and exhausted no one smiles or is welcoming. Even at the pool bars. Would not recommend this resort to anyone and definitely made me not go back to cancun at ALLL!!!
