Our summer trip to Riviera Maya

luxury

#1

We stayed at the Barcelo Maya Palace and absolutely loved it. It was worth it to get the deluxe upgrade wristbands for the private beaches and extra a-la-carte restaurants. The place is huge. Our room had a gorgeous balcony.

Best family friendly resort in Cancun?

What’s another spot nearby that has the same vibe? Which resorts in Riviera Maya, Cozumel, or Puerto Plata have you been to?


#3

Check out Breathless Riviera Maya or Valentin. They are both adult only.


#4

any more details on the wristband policy? How many bands did they have? What was the upgrade fee and process like?


#5

I didn’t get the complete details of the wristbands but I can tell you there are several, each one for different levels of access to restaurants, gym, spa, etc.


#6

What’s the story with the agency specific bands? Any special privileges associated with those?
