My family stayed one week at the Barcelo resort. This is our 5th visit. We were VERY disappointed-- the change from prior years were all "take aways": 1) the buffets were blah and not as good as Sizzler Restaurant -- in fact Sizzler has better tasting food. 2) most hot items were served in large pans drowned in sauses or liquid and are cooked to death. 3) Breakfast and lunches were always the same basic items; not much varity. 4) Most of the hot dishes were not hot. Speciality Restaurants: The Santa Fe steak house / I ordered a NY steak-- what I got was a 1/8" breakfast steak full of grizzle -- I sent it back! They told me I could have a Fillet, so I did order one. They brought back the same steak-- I then order chicken-- it was shriveled up like a 99 year old tennis player and was very salty; no food that night! Do not try the Mexican restauant -- it is just as bad. The last night of our stay we tried the Italian restaurant; my wife got food possioning and vomited all night and on the plane home the next day too. Possitive: The grounds are excellent as always!! But all considered I rate this a "D". We will not return until they return the food quality to the prior standard; Next year we will choose another resort.
