This review is a little late but I wanted to make sure to comment on what a great job Estrella Ausin did coordinating our wedding!! She was wonderful and very professional. Even on the day of our wedding when it was raining she arranged everything beautifully. She arranged gifts in the rooms of our guests and personally met us to make sure our romantic dinner on the beach went well. She is amazing!! A true asset to this facility!

Resort and Staff: I suggest calling the hotel for a shuttle service. It's located a little over an hour South of Cancun. It costs about $70 / person for a two-way ticket from the airport to the hotel. I went in the middle of may, and the resort was fairly empty, which was great! It took us five minutes to check in.

This property is FABULOUS. Whatever you want, it has it. You want a nice pool? There are lots of them. The biggest one, and this is only a guess, seemed to me to be 500 yards long. Water was always crystal clear and the temperature was such that you could stay in it all day--could not ask for a more comfortable environ.

Beautiful huge resort, rooms pools restaurants lobbys are very clean and well kept. Service was very good except in wet bar where bar tenders are short staff and always super busy. Room upgrade options are too expensive to even consider them ($120 p/night for pool view and $180 per night for ocean view) not a big deal because you should spend more time in the pools,bars, restaurants or tours.

I just returned from Barceló Maya Palace Deluxe few days ago. The entire place is very very average. The service is extremely bad. It took us more than an hour to check in and about an hour to check out. Considering that the lobby has no air conditioner the hour seems like 4. The food is very average and the specialty restaurants serve the same food just better decorated. There are no umbrellas in the entire resort, so either you get burned when you are at the beach, or you should just forget ... Read more

What a great place to stay...the staff throughout the resort are tremendous particularly the bar staff at the pool, Liz and the Activities crew, and Julio in the buffet. Everything was always clean and they cater to your ever whim. Absolutely top notch. The only caution is the WiFi is archaeic and cumbersome and absolutely stay away from the casino. There is a reason the casino is empty...they don't play conventional blackjack rules and they take 7% of anything you win!

My mom and I spent one week at the Barcelo Maya Palace (8/5 - 8/12), and although the resort is like a small town in terms of its size, some of the accessibility features were the best I have encountered in ten years of traveling to Mexico and the Caribbean. There are elevators in the main building that houses the reception / check-in area, lobby bar, restaurants, shops, guest services and other offices, so navigating this part of the complex was not difficult at all. From the main building t... Read more

One of the best resort hotels out there. Friendly and helpful staff, good food variety, excellent guests rooms. Every evening you can reserve a restaurant (there are 3 in the palace area and many others in different lobbies) but buffets are also great. Location is great, one hour from the airport, very close to Tulum (great archaeology site to visit) and many other attractions are close by.

My Husband and I just returned from our first trip to Mexico. My Husband planned this vacation for our anniversary. Our whole trip was wonderful! The resort was beautiful, the people were friendly, the food and drinks were great and the excursions were awesome. The excursions were an extra cost but well worth it to us. We are planning another trip for next Dec with our kids because we can't wait to go back!!

It's really nice and big resort, that connected to 3 other family resorts. I would definitely recommend to tryout all of their restaurants( Italian, French, Brazilian, Hibachi etc. and it's soooo authentic!! I'm usually very picky on food. Manager named Anthonio he runs almost 4 Restarant's very nice and polite. Rooms are nice and and clean, nice pools. Every night different shows at all resorts, so you can choose to which one to go to. People were nice and polite! No wifi, you have to pay an ad... Read more

We had a wonderful week. Four couples. I would rate the employees with a 5 star. Accommodations were perfect. Close walking distance to adult pool. My favorite. My favorite restaurant was La Fuente. Wonderful tapas. We swam, bowled, watched dolphin show, scuba dived, drank, sunned on the beach and ate. Highly recommend.

This is our second time to Barcelo Maya Palace and we are extremely satisfied with the resort and service. The room we have is spacious and well appointed. While this is a large resort and you will be walking quite a bit to reach the restaurants and lobby, it is scenic and relaxing to take longer strolls. There is quite a bit of wildlife to see which is a nice surprise. The food is quite good. We have enjoyed the buffet breakfasts and fresh grilled fish for lunch. The al a carte restaurants ar...

Second time to Barcelo, first time starting at the palace. The whole Barcelo property is a great resort. So many options for food, drink, activities, etc... beautiful beach and many expansive pools. Food options are great with many things to choose from. There is a brand new gym on site that is the best one that I've seen at any resort. Huge span facility there also. Best restaurant there I think is either the Rodizio or Brasserie at the Palace. The breakfast/lunch buffet at the palace was wond... Read more

I was there in early November 2016 for a business trip. I had my wife fly in during the tail end of the trip, we spent an extra day just to ourselves. The resort is amazing. It is beautiful and impressive. All of the food was great, all the time. I appreciated the genuine smiles and friendliness of the staff. I noticed that someone was always cleaning or repairing or upgrading the facility. I had the pleasure of meeting two wonderful women, MariaCarmen and Izamar. Those two ladies were constant ...

As a Birthday gift my wife took us to the Barcelo Maya Palace in early Nov 2016. I know that the Barcelo chain is a well respected resort so expected a very good time. However, we were amazed at the resort when we arrived. It is huge... but well planned for walking as well. It is actually one of 5 Barcelo resorts side by side on the beach. The Maya Palace is the top resort which allows its visitors full access to all 5 all inclusive resorts, when the others only have food and drink access at... Read more

We had a fabulous time and the service was outstanding...we had a ocean front Jr. suite and the view of the pool and the ocean was top notch. The restaurants and the buffets were way better than we expected for an all inclusive, we highly recommend the French brasserie. A big shout out to our favorite employee Ms. Maria Palomino who took great care of us during our stay. We will be back ASAP...

We have been to Cancun, Playa Del Carmen and Cozumel many times, but never stayed near the Mexican Rivera. This property is so large and it is wonderful that guests can share each properties restaurants and pools. There is mini golf, bowling, and even a shopping mall on the premises. We had plans to go into Playa and Cozumel and were so busy with everything on this property that we had no time for going anywhere else. You can walk everywhere if you are up for it, or you can experience a ride on ... Read more

All Barcelo properties are a guarantee of service and confort, but The Maya Palace goes an extra mile, with acres to all other properties you can enjoy whatever else is going on at the other hotels, plus you get premium Liquors and excellent food all at a very competitive price. The rooms are very clean and beautifully furnished, and staff will go out of their way to help you. The food at the buffets is abundant, well varied and good quality, and the specialty restaurants are a delight, I specia... Read more
