    “Amazing Family Vacation”

    Our Trip To The Barceló Maya Palace Deluxe December 9th-16th, 2016 I travelled to the Barceló Maya Palace Deluxe with my wife, two children ages 1 year old and 2 years old and with my mother and father in law who are seniors. We flew down from Toronto on December 9th and sadly returned on December 16th. I read reviews on Trip Advisor regularly and with the help of our travel agent I booked the Barceló Maya Palace Deluxe months before our departure and then added my in laws just weeks before departure. This is the first time I had ever booked the Premium Level and it was well worth the added price. I have to thank Pedro Vidinha (Error! Hyperlink reference not valid.) from Sunrise Travel Services who looked after the booking and all of our special requests. Pedro was on board early on in the booking and responded promptly to all of my questions. I realized early on that the Barceló Palace Deluxe was different from other hotels I had travelled to in the past, as I was able to get an email response from a person at the hotel as opposed to a general email box. This was very reassuring to me in terms of having our special requests read and considered. I was able to communicate directly via email with Gisel Garcia, the Chief Concierge at the hotel. Ms Garcia took the time to respond and reassure me that the hotel was trying to look after my requests. (And to be clear, all of our special requests were met.) De The flight down from Toronto to Cancun was the usual filled with excitement but it was when we walked out of the terminal that things started to change. We were not loaded onto a bus, which made multiple stops prior to arriving at our hotel, but instead we were ushered into a mini van for our family and one other couple. A pleasant ride down the highway and we were there. The property is beautifully maintained and very large with a great number of amenities. There are several other sister hotels, and as a guest at the Palace, you can use all of the amenities at these hotels as well. These amenities include the Dolphins, which was an eight-minute walk from our room down the beach, the Mayan Mall equipped with a bowling alley and surfing, the Mexican Plaza for shopping. There are many other amenities including the gym, which was well equipped, and the spa, which we toured but did not have time to use. The kid’s pool at the palace was amazing as well, and like EVERYTHING else on the property was very, very clean. Upon arrival our luggage was taken off the van and counted and we were given a ticket for the luggage and then escort to the Premium Lounge to register. What a pleasant experience. Our rooms were ready and they were two doors down from each other on the third floor of the best building on the property in terms of ocean view. AMAZING. Our luggage arrived shortly after we did. I could go on and on about the amazing service we received, and the food and the location and the things to do but it would take longer to write about it than the trip did. The pluses-and a few observations. SERVICE. Everyone was very polite and eager to help. From the maid who cleaned our room, to guest services, to the waiters in the restaurants to the bartenders to the amazing staff in the Premium Lounge. MOBILITY. This is a huge complex and although the buses run between hotels transportation within the property itself is done on foot. For seniors and people with disabilities be aware of this. The golf carts are for luggage and luggage only. The elevators were all working well and there is no problem getting around from top to bottom. We requested a golf cart to take my parents back to the room one evening as they were not feeling well. The staff took them on a luggage golf cart but that is the exception and not the rule. I FOOD –Excellent. We ate in the buffets for breakfast and lunch and had the occasional Room Service (which was included in our package-if not in your package it is pricy.) Very Good. It’s a big property so the wait was about 40 minutes but the food was very good. Local beer including Corona and premium alcohol. A La Carte Restaurants- Excellent. Loved the Brazilian Steakhouse, Seafood, French and Japanese. We also went to the Italian restaurant in the Colonial and although the food was good found the service and atmosphere a bit of a disappointment compared to the restaurants at the palace. At the Brazilian Steakhouse Ishmael Avila and Benjamin Jimenez treated us like royalty. The food was cooked to perfection and the service excellent. Be sure to get Ishmael to make you a Mexican Coffee. It is a show in itself. At the Seafood Restaurant Francisco and Miguel worked hard to look after our every need as well and the food was awesome. Aside from what you order from the menu in both restaurants, samples and seconds were the order of the day. The French Restaurant was also excellent and the service and food were outstanding. I must stress that we were travelling with a two year old child and a one year old child and two seniors so we were not the easiest people to look after and at all of the a la carte restaurants and the buffets we were treated very very well Wi-Fi Included in our package and worked well. Double Decker Bus Great to travel between hotels. It’s a modern bus and very clean but I am not sure it truly runs every 20 minutes. When you are there, visit everything. The Dolphins are just down the beach. Mayan Mall accessible by the double decker bus has Bowling, Surfing a Casino, Shops, and the Mexican Plaza. The premium lounges are located in each hotel and you can use them all if you are on the premium package. I can’t say enough about the amazing level of service we received in the premium lounges we attended Clean, lots of chairs at both. Kids pool is awesome and lots for the kids to do. Beach. Recommend water shoes as some rocks in the water. Almost no current. The best beach is further down to the Barceló Beach Hotel. You can feed the fish banana and they will swarm around you. Towels are in the room and always easy to get. Overall experience AWESOME. I would like to thank everyone who looked after us for the week. I know I have only mentioned a few people here but the staff at the hotel was amazing and I look forward to our return to the Palace later this year in 2017

    “ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!”

    This was our first time at this resort, and it was paradise - a great experience all around. We traveled with two other couples. Everyone went above and beyond to make our stay wonderful. The rooms were spotless and well-kept throughout the week and the staff was amazingly accommodating with every request. The food was delicious, with two buffets and a snack bar for breakfast and lunch, and the choice of a la carte restaurants for dinner. We ate at La Hacienda for breakfast everyday and had the same waiters (Yhashua Quinones and Santos) - they were so much fun and took care of everything we needed and knew exactly what we wanted. The French restaurant and the Kyoto the Japanese steakhouse were our favorites for dinner. Every morning we walked the entire resort on the walkway and on the beach. So much to see, and so beautiful that the pictures do not do it justice. We snorkeled off the beach in the morning, seeing many kinds of colorful fish, stingrays, and we fed the sea turtles bananas...just an amazing experience. The resort seems to be very kid-friendly, so we are already planning a trip back and we are taking all of our children.

    “Mostly good value for the Premium Level”

    While there was generally good value for paying extra for the Premium Level, one thing that surprised us was the need to pay $20 USD to reserve a pool-side bed at the Adults-only pool. The ability to book the restaurants at all five of the Barcelo resorts was a definite bonus, although most of the best restaurants were at the Maya Palace.

    HBarcelo-Maya-Palace, Gerente at Premium Level at Barcelo Maya Palace, responded to this review
     Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your feedback. We have decided to have an extra fee for those nice beds by the pool in order to regulate more the usage of them as in the past there were all reserved and saused some conflicts between ou guests. We will keep working hard to improve and create more great experiences to our guests. We really appreciate your evaluation and hope to welcome you back soon!! Warm Regards The Management

    “Another great vacation at the Barcelo Maya Palace”

    This was our 6th time at the Barcelo Maya Palace and it was just as good as every other time we stayed there if not better. From the meticulous grounds, the fantastic beach with the countless palm trees, the never ending pools, the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, the variety of restaurants, the beautiful suites, the constant upkeep of the whole resort, you just have to come back time after time with so many others who have been there many more times than us. Everyone works so hard and always with a big smile. First we would like to thank Mr. José Luis Serratos who made this vacation unforgettable for us, besides that he rescued our granddaughters Teddy from the Resort laundry a year ago. Also big thanks to Luis V. Mora who has become our sobrino Mexicano. Fernando and his partner Victor in the French Restaurant, who go above and beyond serving you. Ruben Altunar in the buffet, who remembers you year after year. Jorge Zavala in the Coral Grill, we love the food there. Ulysses at the adult pool bar, he makes the best drinks. Emanuel V. Mora who made sure our luggage got in the van to the airport. We could go on and on. See you in 2017.

    “I want to go back!!!!!”

    My family and I stayed at the Palace for a week in June. We have stayed at many All Inclusive Resorts in Mexico and this is by far our favorite. This is a wonderful family resort. My kids (ages 10 and 8) did not want to leave. The food was incredible and the service was superb. I think the best part was all the fun activities for our kids. My kids loved the water park ( additional fee) and they loved Strikes the bowling alley at the Mayan mall. We also swam with the dolphins. My kids also begged us to take them to the Kids Club. We took them every night at 6:00 so they could eat dinner at the buffet with the other kids. While my children were eating dinner with their friends at the Kids Cub, my husband and I were enjoying our private time dining at all the wonderful restaurants throughout the resort. I am already planning my trip back to the Palace next June.
