    Location 8.07 /10

    The hotel is located on the seafront, some 2 miles from the centre of Puerto Aventuras and some 20 miles from Playa del Carmen and its bus station. It takes about an hour to reach Cancun airport, which is 53 miles away.

    Accommodation 8.70 /10

    The rooms, large and country-style, are equipped with a king-size bed or two double beds. They open onto a balcony or a terrace overlooking the garden. Quite comfortable, all rooms are equipped with air conditioning, a ceiling fan, satellite TV, direct telephone for international dialling, a mini-bar well supplied and a kit for tea and coffee, and also a safe (free). The bathrooms are equipped with a bathtub with a shower, a hair-dryer, a magnifying mirror, personal skin care products and bathrobes. Also there is an iron and weight scales. Please note that the chambers of the Barcelo Colonial and those of the Tropical (opened in 2006), are identical in all respects to those of two other hotels but also have a sitting area with a sofa that can serve as a spare bed.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    Built in 2005, the Barcelo Maya Colonial, along with the Barcelo Maya Tropical, is part of the new structures within the complex. Without being too far from their neighbours, the hotels are off the animations and the kid's club and offer a more peaceful atmosphere. They each consist of two buildings in bright colours, two beautiful swimming pools and a beach surrounded by wild vegetation. Nearby you can use the medical centre, the spa, the hairdresser, the tennis courts and the mini-golf course. All buildings are painted in shades of ochre and decorated with moucharabies of cement. An alley between the hotels Maya Beach and Caribe, where water jets spring, opens a nice scenery to the sea. It is surrounded by vast gardens, the spearhead of this complex, which is affiliated to a British environmental programme, called "Greenglobe 21".

    Food and drink 7.45 /10

    The hotel includes a main buffet, located near the reception, which serves meals in the morning, afternoon and evening. The cuisine, both local and international, is very correct in terms of choice and quality. Every day, the restaurant serves on thematic evenings: Mexican, Caribbean, international, Italian, and seafood. The rooms open to the outside are decorated with columns and surrounded by basins. Likewise, the snack restaurant "El rancho", which is located near the beach and is well equipped with a decoration of wrought iron, offers three meals buffet style. The Mexican restaurant Agave and the Spanish restaurant Don Quijote (on the side of the hotel Maya Caribe) serve a la carte in the evening. A friendly beach bar, brand new, invites you to sit just opposite the Caribe. It is located opposite the large bay and sports facilities, and offers cocktails and other refreshments to sun bathers and / or sports amateurs on the beach. Please note that the hotel offers another speciality restaurant opened in 2006.

    Beach 8.70 /10

    A 6,232 foot bay stretches at the end of the hotel. Its clear waters, displaying fine sand and coral reef, allow you to see schools of fish. It attracts mainly divers. The sun bathers come in to cool off. As for water sports (pedal boats, canoes, sailing and other motorsports), they criss-cross the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. The site, quite secluded, is guarded. An island, dotted with deck chairs and parasols with roofs of palm leaves, mushroom offshore. Beyond the bay, the hotel has a second beach, which is wilder. This part belonging to the Colonial opened recently and the Tropical, the fourth hotel facility opened in 2006. Under the Environmental Programme it is here that sea turtle eggs are collected, preserved in wooden trays placed on a height. A water basin, which must be installed between the Caribe and the Tropical, serves as a nursery. A drawback: with two other hotels, you might wonder if the beaches are sufficient to fill all customers and whether they will retain their exotic charm.

    To know

    The Barcelo Colonial Resort is the top-end of an elegant hotel complex of international standard. It allows you to arrive with your family or in a couple in a vast space located on a bay on the Turquoise Coast, while enjoying many activities, services and facilities. You will stay on all inclusive service (everything included) and will have access to facilities in neighbouring hotels.
    Quieter than its two neighbours, the Caribe and the Beach, the Barcelo Colonial hotel enjoys a wilder beach, away from the entertainment of the complex. No less than four hotels share the places, away from towns and their influx of tourists. The Maya Beach, like the Caribe, is part of the old structures.

      Located at the heart of tropical vegetation, the Freedom Paradise is in the protected natural bay of Tankah, still untouched by the influx of tourists and hotel industry. However it provides all facilities necessary to spend a holiday in a resort on the Turquoise Coast of Yucatan. Located near the magnificent Mayan site of Tulum, it is ideal for families seeking relaxation tinged with cultural sightseeing.

      • Location 8.0

      Ideally situated in Puerto Aventuras, near Playa del Carmen, this complex attracts a loyal clientèle made up exclusively of North Americans. The atmosphere in the hotel is festive, no doubt thanks to the free open bar. The decor is very contemporary and refined, and the hotel facilities are modern and of a good quality. The only downside is the architecture...The building itself is massive and was built before the introduction of the law to protect the coastline; we can't exactly say it blends into the scenery. However, it is the only hotel on the Riviera Maya with more than 4 floors, and the guest rooms on the upper floors have a breathtaking view of the bay. The other guest rooms overlook the dolphinarium behind the building.
