boring and repetitious food choices, but we didn't starve. I'm not a fan of the dinner reservations process. I think they want people to go into town to eat. pool bartenders were very good, but careful not to give top shelf if you didn't upgrade.

This is the fourth time that I have been back to this Barceló. The staff is awesome and always very friendly. José Luis in the restaurant always came and welcomed us even if we weren't his table and wanted to know how our day was. Alejandro that works on the beach was amazing

This is our 1st trip to Ixtapa & it will definitely not be our last. We liked it right from day one. We are a 50’s something couple and we stayed all inclusive. This resort is not large and not too small, easy to walk with access around all areas. This resort has tried to think

Excellent service by the pool, beach, and all restaurants. Rooms and resort could use some updating. Food was good, lots of selection. Drink selection was great. The fresh fruit and guacamole was a favourite. Location to town was great! Beach and ocean very nice. Pool was always

A wonderful place to stay. The hotel rooms are a little dated, but we didn't spend much time in our rooms as the weather was perfect. The hotel is spotless, the staff is attentive and friendly. The buffets were excellent, no complaints on the food choices. The a la cartes

You'll love Ixtapa. Exchanging money can be challenging. The resort will exchange your money once per day. There are a half dozen banks across the street and to the North but they will not all exchange - you might have to go to several before you find one that will exchange (I used the Santander). When at the pool, if you tip the servers (20 pesos is plenty) they will be very prompt. If you don't mind walking, take the bus to Ziwat. It's a lot cheaper than a taxi and its a nice experience. I have seen a lot of mixed reviews about the wifi - we were in a Premium Club room and had no problem at all with the wifi anywhere on the resort - including down around the pool. If you decide to walk to the marina, I recommend the sidewalk in front of the resort. The beach way is nice but it's a long walk on sand and the passage way from the beach to the marina can be a challenge to find. If you have any more specific questions, feel free to ask. Have a great time!

We paid for the wifi for 2 weeks. First week was 50 Canadian and the second week was 40. You can use up to 3 devices so we split it with some friends.

No palapa’s Or umbrellas but the palm trees provide lots of shade. Also the pool area with lots of umbrellas is right next to the beach so great ocean views and shade from that area as well. Check out some of the recent website photos of the resort.

On the envelope that you are given at the time of signing up for Premium Level, under food and beverages it states, "unlimited Premium drinks in all of our bars and restaurants". The Premium Lounge is located at the front entrance. It is very small compared to other Barcelo Premium Lounges.
