What to do at Barcelo prior to check in time?

We are staying at the Barcelo Beach Resort next week. Check in time isn't until 3pm but I've heard about other all-inclusive resorts allowing people to "hang around" the pool and maybe have a few drinks a little early prior to their check in time. Does anyone know how Barcelo is in that regard?

There will be very low occupancy. Very good chance you will get right in. If not they let you check in and get your bracelet. You can leave your bags in the lobby under the watchful eye of the concierge and start partying right away

We just got back from our first trip to Huatulco last night (we stayed at Barcelo). We arrived around 1:30 and our rooms were ready and there was no hesitation about giving us our wristbands at that time. Occupancy was very low. Be sure and make your dinner reservations as soon as you get a chance. We enjoyed the Spanish restaurant the most (both the menu and the venue). We were happy to find that the weather reports we had seen were not "true." Our forcast had shown rain daily and NO sunshine. We saw NO rain and the sun shined daily. Enjoy your stay and feel free to ask any questions.

The staff is great at the Barcelo and as others have said with occupancy this time of year you should be able to get your room right away. If not they will give you your wristband. Not sure if you upgraded to the premium club but we did the last two times at the Barcelo during check-in and recieved a really good price.

Grab a beer and go check the beach out. Walk around the resort, seeing where everything is.

Enjoy.Great resort!

Heard there is renovations going on? Any feedback on that? What room/floor did you stay and were you happy? bringing newbies so we want it to be fun and relaxing. Been 3 x but for about 8 years.

We stayed in the last building, ground floor of the CO side. That building gave us much more privacy with a great view.

UPSGregg, be sure to throw your suit in your carry on! Every resort will give you your wrist band and stow your luggage until check in! Enjoy a stroll, have lunch, or get your drink on! Whatever you decide, you will get a head start on your vacay!

Cheers!
