Barcelo Maya Palace Deluxe
Puerto Adventuras, Mexico
I don't think you can find a more PERFECT resort for families and adults of all ages, than the Barcelo Maya Palace Deluxe! This luxurious all-inclusive has a phenomenal beach, sparkling pools, wonderful food, fantastic service and endless array of activities! There's even an adults-only pool when mom or dad need a break!
The Barcelo is a Mega Resort comprised of Tropical/Colonial section, the Beach/Caribe section and the Maya Palace Deluxe section, which is the most luxurious and upscale!
The beachfront is the most amazing I have seen in Mexico. Situated on a private, mile long, pristine white sand beach, you can snorkel right off the shore to view many sea turtles and colorful fish! In addition to snorkeling, there are several other non-motorized water sports included in the all-inclusive package.
If you are more of a pool person, don't worry! The Barcelo features IMPRESSIVE swimming pools, including an adults-only pool. These pools all vary…some have swim-up bars, there is a zero depth water park for small children, a pool with cascading waterfalls, one set up specifically for sports, etc. There is something for EVERYONE!
Other activities on the properly include basketball courts, tennis courts, kayaks, water trikes, windsurfing, diving lessons in the pool, volleyball, table tennis, water polo, darts, giant chess and billiard tables. There is also a teens area, plus a kids club for ages 4-12 that offers wonderful entertainment for the little ones.
The Barcelo has a Dolphinarium program right on the property in a dedicated pool. Guests are able to view the participants as they interact with the dolphins, as well as videotape/photograph this awesome experience!
The accommodations in the Maya Palace Deluxe Section are newly updated and are in the Michoacan and Oaxaca section of the resort. These rooms all feature updated bathrooms, decor and are able to accommodate families of five or less.
The food at the Barcelo is delicious! There are five gourmet international specialty restaurants and two buffet dining options. The a la carte gourmet restaurants are fantastic and also have beautiful decor! The buffets are HUGE, the biggest I've seen…with many, many choices! The resort also features 24 hour room service.
In addition to nightly entertainment, the Barcelo features an outdoor market in the evenings, with outside vendors and artisans selling their products and wares. It is fun to browse for souvenirs and interact with the local artists. Enjoy a nightcap at one of the many bars, or experience the night club for those 18 years and older.
The search for the PERFECT luxury resort on the PERFECT beach has finally come to an end! The Barcelo Maya Palace Deluxe is IT! The beach is what dreams are made of and everything else from the service, accommodations and dining is just as good! I can't wait to return!
