Barcelo Officially Opens New All-Inclusive in Riviera Maya

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - December 16, 2019

Barcelo has officially launched its new Barcelo Maya Riviera resort on the Caribbean coast of Mexico. 

The all-suite, adults-only resort is set in the heart of the Riviera Maya, joining five other Barcelo resorts in the Barcelo Maya Grand Resort complex. 

The resort complex also includes a massive new conference center with room for up to 8,000 attendees and 190,000 square feet of space. 

“We’re closing the year with multiple recognitions for the hard work and efforts by our Barceló Maya Grand Resort property team” said Stefania Ballotta, Director of Sales & Marketing at Barceló Maya Grand Resort. “We are confident this new all-inclusive, adults-only offering will elevate our property to new levels of service and offer an unmatched vacation experience for our guests.”

The 850-room resort, which includes 110 swim-up suites, has a four-pool complex, four specialty eateries and an art installation by noted Mexican artist Julie Sasson. 

The company told Caribbean Journal that guests at Barcelo Maya Riviera would have access to all of the company’s other resorts within the complex.
