How often do you get the chance to be one of the first guests at a brand new hotel on Mexico’s beautiful Riviera Maya? The Riviera Maya's newest all inclusive hotel, Barceló Maya Riviera, is the perfect place for an adults-only getaway in the Mexican Caribbean. Opening in December 2019, it’s already earning buzz for its fresh approach to an all inclusive Caribbean vacation. Here’s why you should start making plans to visit Barcelo Maya Riviera.

No kids allowed

That’s right. Barceló Maya Riviera is an entirely kids-free zone. It’s a place that is designed for grown-up fun, luxury and relaxation. The hotel is home to 850 exclusive and sophisticated rooms, all of which are Junior Suites or Suites. But wait, it gets better. More than half of the rooms boast spectacular ocean panoramas. What’s more, over a hundred rooms are swim-up, giving you easy access to refreshing pools. The suites also include a hot tub on the terraces, minibars with free daily refills of drinks, and double beds or super king-sized beds.

It’s a foodie’s dream come true

The hotel’s specialty restaurants will offer a diverse array of cuisine, including a Mexican “Tacoyaki” bar, French fine dining, Italian, and Japanese (including 10 Tepanyaki tables and one Robatayaki table for fireside cooking), not to mention a buffet restaurant with international cuisine available during breakfast, lunch and dinner. You’ll also have the chance to enjoy cocktails, wine, beer and appetizers at one of five bars, including a refreshing poolside bar and an exceptional lobby bar. And that’s just the beginning of your foodie adventures during your Riviera Maya vacation. The area is filled with fantastic eating-out options, from fine dining to authentic taco joints.

Total wellness is within reach here

Feeling stressed? An adults-only Barceló Maya Riviera is the refreshing and rejuvenating destination you’ve been dreaming of. Just spend a little time at the U-Spa Wellness & Fitness Center, which is located in the Barceló Maya Grand Resort complex. This state-of-the-art wellness haven takes its cues from the four elements (earth, water, fire and air). In the hands of the experts here, you’ll be transported to a place that’s worry-free. Indulge in two sauna and steam rooms. Restore in the tropical and bi-thermal showers. Find your inner peace in an immersion pool. And treat yourself to one (or two!) of the many massages, facials and other wellness treatments on the menu.

Barceló Maya Riviera all access

If you’re staying at the Barceló Maya Riviera, you’re in luck. During your Caribbean getaway, you can enjoy everything on offer at the rest of the hotels of Barceló Maya Grand Resort (made up of the Barceló Maya Palace, Barceló Maya Beach, Barceló Maya Caribe, Barceló Maya Colonial, and Barceló Maya Tropical hotels). That’s 22 restaurants, 10 pools, three theatres, three water parks, a bowling alley and so much more. You’ll also be on one the best Caribbean beaches. Whether you want to simply relax on the sand with a cocktail in hand or enjoy a snorkeling or scuba diving adventure, Riviera Maya beaches won’t disappoint.

  • Added bonus: Maybe you’re on an adults-only vacation – but who says you can’t have a little amusement park fun?
