Please read all of the information below carefully. 

Who doesn’t want to spend a magnificent vacation in a beach hotel with the best services?

The Barceló Maya Beach***** hotel is located in front of one of the most beautiful beaches in the Mexican Caribbean, which stretches 1.2 miles along the Mayan Riviera.

The hotel has recently been refurbished to meet the demands of our guests and now boasts a striking club house that hosts reception services, Club Premium Lounge, Beach Lobby Bar with smoking terrace, Beach Buffet Restaurant, a specialty restaurant and a gift shop.

It also offers magnificent Premium Level Ocean Front Junior Suites and Premium Level Ocean Front Suites; completely modern and equipped with the exclusive benefits of our Premium Level program. These Premium Level Ocean Front Suites give you access to the facilities and services of the Barceló Maya Palace hotel.

The All Inclusive program offers snacks and drinks available 24 hours a day, as well as access to 3 restaurants: the Beach buffet, inspired by Mayan culture; the spectacular “México Lindo” with specialties of Mexican cuisine and the “Rancho Grande”.

The program also allows you to enjoy the sports facilities and 2 swimming pools; one for adults and one for children. There is also a stunning U-Spa with an original U-Kids Spa (additional charges apply) for the little ones. The hotel’s vibrant night life offers live shows in the theater and disco.

Barceló Maya Grand Resort – Stay in One Hotel and Enjoy 4 Hotels! 

Guests staying at the Barceló Maya Beach can enjoy access to the large Barceló Maya Grand Resort complex, made up of the Barceló Maya Beach, Barceló Maya Caribe, Barceló Maya Colonial and Barceló Maya Tropical.


If you want to enjoy the warmest sun, the waves, the reefs and the natural wells on the Caribbean coast, Riviera May is where you want to be. Here, you will find world-class restaurants, a nightlife that keeps you dancing till the morning, exclusive spas, shopping centers, and some of the world’s best golf courses.

The Riviera Maya is also one of the best destinations for diving and snorkeling. On its shores lies an extensive coral reef, home to a vast variety of marine species. If you are lucky enough to submerge in the Caribbean waters, you will find yourself surrounded by tropical fish, stingrays, and even the fascinating whale sharks. And if you are really into aquatic activities, you will love to practice them in the sea, but also in the natural pools formed in underground rivers along the Riviera Maya. The experience of exploring a cavern and swimming in the crystal-clear water will stay in your memory forever.

If you are more into eco-tourism, looking for natural environments to get away from the large crowds, Riviera Maya is good news, because much of the region is still not urbanized and it’s easy to find many amazing spots to become one with nature.

Why book your travel with Destinations by Amy?

1.     The bride and groom have put their trust in us to plan a successful destination wedding for them. The best way for us to manage their wedding plans is to book and manage every reservation so we can coordinate each detail of the wedding event. This relieves stress for the bride and groom and all of their guests.
2.     The bride and groom have already acquired a group booking code. Rooms booked outside of their block do not count towards fulfilling their contract.
3.     The team at Destinations by Amy is committed to giving you personal and individual attention. You will be treated like the valued client that you are and not merely a confirmation number! We are able to customize your trip any way you like, and can even help if you’d like to extend your stay, change resorts, or bring your family. Please allow us to make sure your travels are handled with our service and expertise.
4.     We monitor your reservation and keep you informed of any changes that could occur. Even after you finalize your booking, we will be with you to make certain everything goes smoothly.
5.     You will be part of the wedding group and the resort will treat you as a destination wedding VIP guest. You will appear on our final guest list that gets sent to the resort prior to arrival.
6.     We work hard on getting you the best price. If you see a less expensive price for the exact package – dates, airline, airline times, taxes, insurance, transfers, etc. – give us the opportunity to work with you to see if we can get the same price. This way we can book your reservation and you can become part of the wedding party. Online prices usually do not include all that we have negotiated for the group. Please give us the opportunity to help you with this.
