This is our third visit here and the hotel is just as relaxful and clean. The personel is always friendly and helpful. The wifi is only available in the hotel lobby so if you require wifi in your room be sure to upgrade to the premium suites. The only thing that stood out was the buffet, in the past I...

We really liked this resort. I strongly recommend to get the premium package which we had since you get an amazing room on the higher floor with a great view from the balcony. The food was great in all restaurants and we really enjoyed the nightly entertainment for kids and the whole family.

Spent 2 weeks there in March 2017. Expensive. Make your reservation on line to get better pricing than at the front desk. All inclusive package option including drinks and food. Premium rooms are excellent. Great views from balcony. Small beach area but large pools and lounge areas. Very good food from your choice of 4 restaurants. Twenty minute walk to...

The resort is well maintained and very clean. The variety of food at the restaurants was excellent, lots of fish and fruit. The rooms were spacious, quiet and great place to relax between swims. The local Saturday market and trip to city center were great, actual Mexican hospitality and not one timeshare sales pitch. We must return again to do...

We returned from a relaxing weeks stay (March 22-29) at the Barcelo. The resort is small and quiet with gorgeous landscape and scenery. We had the premium package and felt it was worth it receiving a superior room (#6218), unlimited a la cartes and premium alcohol (Crown royal, Baileys). We didn't get our maids name as our room was cleaned...

The rooms are very big but with old fashioned furnishing, they have 2 TV´s one old and the other brand new, a strange combination. The food is generally good in the buffet restaurant, but the specialty restaurants are regular. The golf camp is not optimal.

Not everything about this resort was bad - the food was very good, the rooms were clean and the hawks in the grounds were fascinating, especially since we could pet them. Overall, though, our experience was negative. The two biggest issues were: not enough chairs for all of the guests and the ocean view I paid extra for was only...
