A million positives about Barcelo (Colonial). Huge number of optional activities for any age (some cost; para-glide 130 USD for 2, surfingsmall waterpark 20USD/day but many don't; tennis, paddle bal, snorkel equipment, scuba lesson, nightly shows. Superbly well maintained grounds. Massive property to explore. Never a prpblem getting lounge chairs (group of 10) but this is during covid and less than full capacity. Staff were exceptional when it came to covid protocols, and politeness. Almost all tourists used masks when required (mandatory when in buffet) but mask free outside. The lobby desk check-in and out system is very slow at times and antiquated. Sometimes, different staff would give different answers to the same questions. The buffet food is fine in quality and variety. The restruants were OK (Kyoto was fabulous); most where gourmet looking but average at best food. Book ALL the restaurants immediately!!! They fill quicky! At times, there is a bit of a septic smell in ONE spot. Beach and sand is not the best in the world or on Mayan but lovely. Lots of palm tress and shade areas everywhere. Group of 10 ranging from 10 to 73 had a great time. And our duahgter is in the travel and tourism business. We'd all return!

Hotel's Favourite
This is one of the best experiences in Riviera Maya. There is a lot to do without ever leaving the resort and the staff takes care of all of your tours and information. The people at the booths in the market are a bit pushy since they aren't getting any business, be prepared to stand your ground - but the resort gift shop has everything you need at a fair price. I also like the guys selling jewelry on the beach. I will be back!

Every year me and my son go to Mexico for a long time, at this time it was 8 weeks in 5 different hotels, this one was last week and worst!!!Rude staff, terrible service, nobody cares about you!! I do not know whats going on here, we have been to amazing places, i do not know what is depends on , probably from the administration. Room was very old and damp , i should to change sheets every day myself on two beds, because it was faster than i ask someone to do it. when i ask to bring me sheets it could take 1,5 hours, one time i was waiting till 12.30 midnight and still did not get what i need, staff very poor in english, even at the reception...whatever you ask, you have to wait long time or they just forget about you in generally!!...i asked dehumidifier, they did not have it, all hotel where i was had this, supervisor promised to change room , but offered 2 rooms even worse than i had, and finally forgot about me, i was not surprised, this is normal for this hotel......last two years i was in Barcelo Maya Palace it was very good, and this is the same chain of hotels, i do not understand whats going on at Barcelo Maya Colonial, why its so bad????

From check in to check out it was constant problems. When we arrived there were 2 staff checking in guests. We were next to be waited on. It took us approximately an hour just to check in. When we arrived to our room there was not a remote for the tv. My spouse when to ask about a remote and look for something to eat. (No map or guidance was given to us.) Maintenance came with a remote that didn't work for the tv. He said he would be back and never came. My spouse calls and says restaurants were closed. I found a room service menu. Room service is 24/7. I called (11 pm) and was put on hold. They never answered. The next morning I tested the safe. It locked but would not open again. So we went to breakfast at the buffet. Most of the food was cold. Next we headed over to Guest Services. The lady didn't speak English. Luckily my spouse is Mexican and was able to come talk to her and let her know what was going on. She took our information and then was trying to pressure my spouse to buy into their vacation club. Since the sit down restaurants required reservations I sat down with a worker that speaks English and proceeded to make reservations. We spent 4 nights so I was trying to make reservations for 2 nights. I was told there would be a $20 fee if I wanted more than one restaurant. I told her no and moved on. (finally a remote arrived) We went to the pool no drink menu. We don't drink very often at all. But while on vacation I thought I would have some fruity cocktails. Upon arriving back to our room after dinner we could not get in. It took us approx 20 minutes to get it. (There are no service phones located in the hotel.) Day 3 housekeeping came took all the used towels and didn't replace them. So we didn't have a hand towel to use after washing our hands. We were not provided wash clothes at all. Once again after dinner we couldn't get into our room. We asked another guest to call the front desk for us. Which she did. But no one showed up. My spouse had to go locate an employee. They came and let us in and then called maintenance to change battery in door. (I spoke with another guest who had the same problem.) And witnessed another guest on our floor having the same problem). Day 4 was fine. This is the night we had at the steak house. Our steaks were very thin but it was cooked properly. Check out was fairly quick. Most of the staff was rude. I was barely talked to by the staff. And there was a constant sewer smell. In the room and on the grounds. The restroom at the pool restaurant was the worst.
