It was our anniversary and the staff went above and beyond. Ana and Adelina did a fabulous job of making sure we had a blast.
We've stayed at a few Barcelos, and this was by far the smallest. Still, it had something for everyone. The music by the swim up bar was a little too loud, making it hard to find a 'quiet' place certain times of the day. Still, everyone was having a blast.
For an all inclusive, the food is solid. The drink selection is better quality than the competition at a similar price point. 3 ala carte restaurants for supper, buffet or snack bar (which was waiter service and featured ala carte selections) for lunch, and buffet for breakfast. Service is better than other all inclusives.
Rooms are BIG, and nice. Air condition isn't the best, and make sure to leave your key in as it turns off the system if you remove it. Have New York ABC, NBC, CBS affiliates.
We stayed part of our stay in building one, and part in building 2. Building one was less noise as music from poolside bar and 'The Cantina' seemed to travel across pool moreso than up above.
We upgraded to Barceló Premium. I recommend it as it allows you to eat at an ala carte restaurant every night. The lounge is also nice with the computers. The wifi isn't the best, so having access to the computer lounge is nice.
The few cons are: wifi, public restrooms toilets, smaller resort (also a positive)
Once again, THANKS TO THE STAFF! Ana, Adelina, Humberto, David (server), Marco (server), Francisco (server), Hugo, Alejandro, and Teresa.
