17. Barceló Maya Palace – All Inclusive

The Barcelo Maya Palace, which opened in 2008, is the newest, smallest (by megaresort standards), and most lavish of the Barcelo hotels. It has everything a 4.5-star all-inclusive should have, including beautiful pools, a bevy of amenities, and good meals. Everything about this hotel is luxury, from the foyer to the service and the rooms. The Club Premium level provides additional luxuries such as personalized concierge services, free 24-hour room service, and free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel. Guests staying at the Palace have access to all of the facilities at its sister properties, the Barcelo Maya Colonial & Tropical and the Barcelo Maya Caribe & Beach, but not the other way around, making the resort feel more tranquil and exclusive. The fitness center, gourmet and buffet restaurants, pools, and entertainment are exclusive to Palace guests, while the spa, kids’ spa, and beach are shared with other Barcelo facilities. During peak season, a shuttle runs every 15 to 20 minutes from early morning until late at night, however, wait times might be longer in the off-season, and walking is sometimes more convenient. However, there is little shelter and the distances can be long, so visitors planning to explore on foot should wear a hat.

The hotel’s “24/7 All-Inclusive Plan” is a positive because it implies that snacks and drinks are provided to all guests in the lobby bar all night. Food is typically comprised of little sandwiches and pieces of pizza, as well as a few sweets.

Throughout the day, there are activities at the main pool and the sun deck surrounding it, but music ends no later than 7 p.m., so guests who want to spend some peaceful time in their rooms won’t be disturbed by loud house rhythms when the sun goes down. Because the Club Premium rooms are closest to the pools and the beach, they may be noisier throughout the day when the windows are open.
