Can you drink the water at Barcelo Maya Beach Resort?

Long time since we have visited Mexico. Can you drink water at this resort? From the tap? Use it to brush your teeth? Also should we exchange money in US before traveling or will they accept dollars? Going in December. Thanks for the help!

Tap water is not safe to drink anywhere in Mexico. Drink bottled water and use it to brush your teeth.

Don't believe any of the Resorts have water that is safe to drink from the tap. Stick with bottled water. Many local friends working at the resorts have told me to never trust the water systems because they rarely maintain it properly.
