Sand. Surf. Sun. The Big Three. The hinges on which your Mexican Caribbean vacation swings, the reasons why Nature has such a love affair with Mexico's Riviera Maya and why this region is such a powerful draw to vacationers worldwide. Who can adequately describe the awesome beauty of this slice of paradise? It must be experienced to comprehend it. Important as the Big Three are, any truly great vacation is also dependent on an equally great hotel and resort, one that is on par with these incredible surroundings. Introducing the Barcelo Maya Beach Resort, an impressive all-inclusive in Xpu-Ha, a small bay located just fifteen minutes from Playa del Carmen and approximately an hour south of Cancun.
The Barcelo Maya Beach Resort lies at the center of these surroundings and is the man-made complement to Nature's artistry, and skillfully utilizes these natural resources to the vacationer's advantage. The resort is in close proximity to several notable historical, architectural, and eco-geo-physical sites, including Cozumel Island, Playa del Carmen and the Playacar golf course, Xcaret (eco-park), Puerto Aventuras, Soliman Bay, Akumal, Xel-Ha, the ruins of Chichen Itza, Coba, and the walled city of Tulum. It's a bit off the hurried path, which is just what some vacationers are looking for.
The Barcelo Maya Beach Resort actually consists of 627 comfortable guest rooms, a Spa with Turkish bath, a 9-hole golf course nearby, swimming pools, an outdoor Jacuzzi, pool fountains, six restaurants, tennis courts, mini-golf course surrounding a cenote, and incomparable natural surroundings.
Scuba diving and snorkeling near the resort and in this region are excellent. Snorkeling on-site by the hotel pier allows beginners snorkeling whenever they like, without having to take a boat out to the reef. Resort guests get a free scuba class in the pool. Consider taking your own snorkeling gear (or buying it once you arrive) if you plan on snorkeling very much. The Great Maya Reef beckons and challenges every skill and interest level, and the Reef contains innumerable coral gardens, underwater tapestries and murals, teeming with life, and vibrant with color and movement. Not far offshore is Cozumel Island, with its own spectacular reefs for diving and snorkeling.
The resort caters to families and couples, has a young children's club, and can even accommodate business groups in the conference rooms and ballrooms. There is a small business center with audio-visual equipment and a library.
The resort offers entertainment programs during the day and night, including games, shows and performances. For the younger guests Kids Barcy Club (ages 4-12) offers a variety of supervised activities and a children's pool.
