After reading the previous reviews about this resort we were expecting very little. All I can say is WOW! This place is massive, clean, comfy and very impressive and if anyone could think otherwise they must be used to Hilton standards. The transfer from Faro to the hotel was just over an hour by minibus and only had one drop before we headed to the hotel.
The pools were huge and never busy and well attended by the lifeguards. They have a rule on no large floats or rings so be careful as the hotel shop does sell them regardless.
Food- very nice, a different restaurant every night on rotation... Italian, Spanish, American(WOW) and Oriental, all wonderfully presented and very tasty. Breakfast and lunch are eaten in your base restaurant and again, plentiful and there is something for everyone.
Alcohol is all the big brands and the cocktails are worth a try.
Everyone in this complex that we came to meet was absolutely lovely. Lucia, our rep was excellent, loads of local knowledge and very friendly and approachable. The animation team are fantastic- our little one loved joining in with the games, dances/mini disco and kids clubs . The evening entertainment was great- `The time of your life show` was our favourite- you will hear a lot of Spanish during the shows, we enjoyed picking up some of the words and phrases.
I only have praise and thanks to everyone at Barcelo for such a wonderful holiday from start to finish. We will be back again soon.
