Amazing Hotel! Never Expected This Beautiful! Deserves 5 Golden Stars!

This is a very detailed review, if you want cliff notes, just scroll down to the bottom where it says "Final Notes" but I would read everything for the best info :)

INTRO:
My boyfriend, mom, grandma, and I (us being 20 yrs. old while the other 2 were 45 and 69 yrs. old) went to the Mayan Riviera to the Barcelo Maya Tropical Beach Resort from March 9th through March 16th for my college spring break. This hotel is a humongous complex made up of 4 Barcelo hotels (in order from oldest to newest): Barcelo Beach, Barcelo Caribe, Barcelo Colonial, Barcelo Tropical (opened in winter of 2005). We were able to use all the amenities from all the 4 hotels including all restaurants, buffets, theatres, pools, etc.

I would like to start out by saying that this is most definitely one of the most beautiful, luxurious, and well kept hotels I have been to in my life (everyone that traveled with me agrees). I have been to other 5 star All Inclusive Resorts in places like:
Punta Cana, Dominican Republic (Iberostar)
Cancun, Mexico (Gran Caribe Real)
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico (Riu)
I've also been to other Non-All-Inclusive hotels in Hawaii, the Caribbean Islands, I've been on a cruise, etc. so that is to show you that I have traveled a bit and have some things to compare in my opinion.

RESORT GROUNDS:
1st off I want to mention how absolutely BEAUTIFUL this resort was. It had so much lush greenery everywhere and the gorgeous walkways with the pools flowing in and out of each other all around the resort and fountains everywhere. I have to say I was extremely impressed. I've been to some great resorts but this one outdid them in beauty by a long shot. Also, I kept witnessing how well maintained the property was, one person would be mowing the lawn and there would be another worker running behind him sweeping up little amounts of leftover grass (the upkeep everywhere was more than overdone!)
The Beach is 2 KM in length which is 1.2 miles . It has gorgeous white sand stretching throughout and at the very ends of the beach there are beautiful rock formations that people climb onto and witness the crashing waves on. It's pretty beautiful and I liked the beach more here than in most places I've been. There are palm trees right on the beach which I've never seen before so close to the water, however, they are a little trimmed because of the hurricane a few months ago (that was the only damage we pretty much witnessed from the hurricane in that area of Mexico).
The pools are magnificent (there are 2 big pools and a lap pool for the Tropical & Colonial and about 2 more throughout the resort for the other 2 hotels) with fountains streaming in the middle and throughout the sides of each pool. There was also a big waterpark with slides and waterfalls for kids that was in a separate areas. There are palapa roofs everywhere for shade as well as every few feet there are hammocks to lie in-plenty for everyone. You can use any of the pools for any of the 4 hotels because it is all one complex. There are always enough lounge chairs if not too many, never once was there a need to reserve any at the pool or on the beach. The Tropical/Colonial beach where we stayed had a lot less people than the Caribe/Beach side so if you like more privacy I would advise going to that area.

FOOD:
I was more than impressed with the food in this resort. The ONE IMPORTANT THING I RECOMMEND is make reservations for all your restaurants you plan to attend the 1st night you get there (there is a lady at the guest services desk in the main lobby untill 11 pm) because you will not be able to get into anything otherwise, you'll see what I mean if you don't do this. Also getting sick shouldn
