I am very late in my review of the Barceló and my daughter's wedding last October. I could not have imagined a more perfect setting or event. The manager was on site and attended the event assuring that his staff was on-point at every step. The wait staff were so efficient that we often turned around and our beverages had been promptly bussed away. The food from the Don Quixote restaurant and our custom menu was excellent - we had not one complaint and the vegetarian choice was delicious as well. The wedding cake was a Mexican version of a cheesecake that was one I look forward to having when I return to the resort. All details were tended to in prompt time from music to fireworks to food - appetizers to dessert!
We felt so lucky that we discovered the Barceló about three years ago on an impromptu vacation. It has become our at least yearly retreat since then. The rooms are fabulous - very large and comfortable and we enjoy the "extras" of the club premium program. We feel it is worth every bit of the extra cost. The staff at the Barceló become your friends....Humberto & Sr. Diaz have been there each time we have visited. ..welcoming us like family. Everyone is very friendly - from housekeepers to bar staff.
I do agree that if you are sensitive to bug bites you need to bring repellent. This is the edge of the jungle! Regarding other issues that people have...I wouldn't put too much into it. For those who complain that drinks are weak...ask for a double. We have never found this to be the case. The restaurant options provide us with plenty of choices. If you are unable to find something to your liking, I am surprised.
We are making our plans for October to celebrate their first anniversary - Barceló here we come!
