Choose either the one-hour Princess U Kids Spa Package ($70) or two-hour Queen Barceló Maya Package ($90), including a hairstyle, makeup, manicure and pedicure. Paint the dreams of your little girl pink, turning your Caribbean getaway into an unforgettable experience.

And how about you? The 32,000-square-foot U-Spa is a haven for wellness, with saunas, steam baths, tropical and bi-thermal showers, and dynamic and immersion pools.
