I did a site inspection of this resort a week before it opened. That is why you do not see any people in the photos I took of it. I really like this resort. I think it is a perfect addition to the Barcelo Maya Complex. The complex needed a 5 star resort that stepped it up a little bit. This resort defiantly does that. I have made two pages for this resort because I took so many good photos. One page has photos of the rooms and the other is all facilities.

All rooms at this resort are junior suites or suites. The junior suites come with everything you would expect from a five star resort. They have a fully stocked mini bar, 24 hour room service, a plasma screen TV with satellite, coffee maker, a balcony or patio and a living room area. Junior Suites are going to have a pool or garden view. The Premium Club rooms are Junior Suites with an ocean view. Added amenities of the Premium Club rooms is the premium lounge where you have private check in and check out, free internet and a lounge. The Suites are twice the size of a junior suite and have a much bigger living room, a dining room, double the patio, a much bigger bathroom with the tub and shower being separate. The décor of the rooms is nicer than the rooms at the other Barcelo Resorts.

Pools at this resort are pretty big. There is the main pool with a huge swim up bar. It has a huge Jacuzzi adjacent to it. They have an adults only pool for relaxation and pool side messages. There is an activities pool for volleyball, laps, basketball and polo. There is also a water park for the kids with many slides. Kids are sure to love this area.

The beach in front of this resort is not swimmable due to rocks. However you can use the beach at the other resorts which are just next door. The other Barcelo Resorts have a perfect beach. At the other resorts you can use all their facilities except for the a la carte restaurants.

The resort has three a la carte restaurants for dinner. Reservations are required. Types of cuisine offered are Brazilian, French and Caribbean. When you go to these restaurants there is a lounge just before them with a bar so that you can wait in comfort if you have shown up early for dinner. There are two buffet restaurants. They have the same food just different décor.

Reasons to book this resort: You are looking for a family resort that offers a lot of activities for the whole family. You are looking for a resort that is a little bit secluded from mass tourism but offers all the facilities of a big resort.

Reason not to book this resort: You are looking for an adults only resort. You are looking for a resort that is close to shopping and night life.
