Nestled right up against palm-lined, white sand beaches, the Barcelo Maya Palace Deluxe occupies an enviable spot on the Yucatan Peninsula. Float around in utter peace in the adults-only pool, experience the region's culture firsthand in the Mayan steam bath or 'Temazcal', or take your little ones to make new friends at the on-site 'dolphinarium.' When hunger hits, the hotel's six restaurants make it easy to enjoy the French, Brazilian, Caribbean and Mexican cuisine of this multicultural region. The all-inclusive package is also much loved by parents who can't get enough of its four bars, supervised children's activity center and teens' club, and activities like fishing and golf just a short walk away.

Neighborhood
This exceptional resort is situated in the midst of Mexico's Caribbean coastline, the Riviera Maya, just south of the residential community Puerto Aventuras. Playa del Carmen, with its spirited Latino bars and chic boutiques, is 16 miles north of the hotel. Visitors can take a tour through history by heading for the historic cliff-top ruins at Tulum, to the south.
Hints and tips
As with many Mayan Riviera destinations, visiting the Barcelo Maya Palace Deluxe during spring break is not a good idea for those looking to experience peace and quiet.

While you're at the hotel, squeeze in a sailing trip around the resort to experience the beauty of the jewel-like coastline from the sea.

    Destination Wedding

    Hey, This was a great resort overall, the security was a bit tight since not everyone from our group of 35 was staying there, but overall they did great. The property is MASSIVE, so be prepared to do some walking. The buffets were fine, nothing amazing but not really expected since they are preparing food for the masses. The pools were great, the pool side service was awesome and so was the beach. Overall, I would recommend this resort for anyone, with or without kids.

    Go to Coco Bongo, you can pay and schedule the shuttle pick up by the pool. The shows were great and the time flies when you are in there.

    Love the Palace

    We traveled with two teenage boys. We had 2 rooms, but the couches in our rooms were daybeds so they Easily could have stayed with us (but, uh, no). The staff is excellent!! The food, I can't begin to describe the options or I won't get to anything else, is amazing. There is sooooo much to do that if you try to do it all you won't relax! We had massages both at the spa & on the beach. We windsurfed, sailed, snorkeled, swam, parasailed, jet skied, swam with dolphins, played tennis, basketball, outdoor chess . . . And so much more. Show shows, hung out, I can't wait to go back. Oh, and this was our second time there.

    Had high hopes and I was disappointed. I will definitely return back to Riviera Maya but I will choose a different hotel.

    Vacation for 2

    Beautiful resort! Staff was always nice and friendly. Room was clean and comfortable. Plenty of water fun available & always able to find beach/pool chairs. Food was good but not great. Was disappointed that 2 of 5 of the resorts were closed while we were there. A couple of the restaurants were also closed. Would recommend to a friend! Hope to return sometime with friends or family

    Good vacation resort

    The hotel and the staff where great! Lost of things to do although some of them in other hotels part of the resort far away. Food is good and the restaurants where good, lovely staff, although you have to book them personaly, couldn't do it by phone something that is outrageous for a 5 star hotel.... Also the Mexican restaurant was close because was low season... I couldn't understand that... As a tourist I go to places to try their cuisine. Have to improve their burocracy to do some stuff like asking for internet, but by all means it was great, good location, great staff, nice views and beautiful rooms

    Great place to stay!

    Great food--really great! Friendly staff (except front desk on the day we were there), awesome beach and pools, clean and big room--all around, you cannot go wrong. Things the hotel can work on include better Wi-Fi (doesn't work well in the rooms or anywhere for that matter and the hotel would not credit us for not being able to use it#, fixing up their boats and gear #some were worn to the point of unsafe, like the life preservers), and better a/c in the rooms and facilities. We would go back though, in a minute...or forever.

    Great value!

    Our experience may not have been a perfect 5 star one, but considering the price and the staff availability and friendliness; I think it does deserve a 5 star recognition. Food may not be the greatest but it is great enough for an-all inclusive experience. The beach may be rocky at some spot, but you quickly learn where the sandy part is. The water is warm, and clean. The pools were clean. Children loved the slides. The rooms are clean. The beds are not the most comfortable. We chose to stay the least possible in our rooms and spend it on the pool or beach. Food and snacks were always available. Overall we had a great time. Would we go back? I think we will...

    The Brazilian and French restaurants were our favorite. It is advised to book the restaurants dinners as soon as you get there for all your stay since the numbers are limited.

    Glorious paradise

    My husband and I booked our 2 nights stay here for my friend's wedding. Upon arrival in our shuttle, I realized I could not have imagined a bigger resort. Huge enough to need a tractor shuttle from one sister hotel to the next. We stayed at the Palace. The Lobby and restaurants were a good mile walk from our hotel suite. Large room facing palm trees. The pools I fell in love with. Many types of gorgeous pools, large swim up bars, beach nearby where sea turtles swam up next to me, and 2 buffets. The restaurants required reservations almost 2 days in advance. I didn't have time to try them. The la hacienda buffet was decent. The Coral buffet was unedible. Most food were bland. Staff was ok . Waiters don't really speak English but that's ok because it's a buffet. The sauna was small. Gym is small ( but with all the walking gym isn't necessary). Casey lounge was ok... Drinks used cheap liquor. The club Jaguar discotheque at the sister hotel was ok. We had to bribe the Dj to stop the techno music. Alcohol was all included with the food. $9.95 room service fee though. Remember to tip the staff!! Wedding was beautiful though so the staff did well
