Left this resort early!!!!!

We booked a family suite for 9 days at the Barcelo and ended up switching resorts after 4 nights! We have stayed at many all inclusive resorts in Mexico and are honestly not picky people. We booked premium level which only real benefits were getting unlimited al a carte dinners. The “premium lounge” was an absolute joke, rarely restocked alcohol and beers were usually always warm. Food was always empty or picked over.
We made a huge mistake by booking a family suite for 2 adult couples and a baby. This room is not ideal for 2 adult couples!! This was our mistake as we didn’t research enough however the customer service at this resort was the WORST I have ever experienced at a hotel!! The front desk manager couldn’t have been more rude and unprofessional. They gave us no options to make our stay more enjoyable. So instead our westjet vacations rep (who was wonderful) switched us to a resort we know and love ( so much for trying something new!!)
The food here is disgusting!! Everything was served cold, the buffet was seriously scary, very very strange authentic Mexican food that was the same every single day. The al a carte’s were ok however 2 of the 4 adults in our group got very sick from eating there.
This resort has terrible drink service and they use reusable plastic cups that they don’t wash properly, Quite a few times drinks came in dirty cups. Plus they are completely straw free which is challenging when you have a toddler who needs one to drink!
The only good thing I can say about this resort is their heated pools are excellent.
We will not ever be returning or recommending.

Terrible. Will not even stay here again

This place claims to be a 5 star and it is not even close to a 3 star resort. 4 people in our group got sick from the food. There was constantly issues with the rooms. Broken showers, toilettes and safes. Customer service was terrible. My sister and her boyfriend were ROBBED from their safe 300 dollars. When they confronted the staff, the lady told them they had made the story up and that they were lying!?! Not helpful. My safe was wide open after my room had been cleaned.. nothing taken but only kept my passport in there. You have to pay extra for wifi. The al a carts were disappointing and the buffet was honestly sickening. Do not stay here. You can find way nicer places for half the price.

This resort does not qualify any higher than 3 star. Very disappointing place. Poor service right from check in to check out. Resort is quite small. No room for walks, no nice place fie a lovely drink. Front entrance, lobby area has no lovely amenities like a coffee bar or lounge. No wifi in main lobby. Hard to get into alacarte restaurants and when we finally did they we’re mediocre. Spanish restaurant got five star as it was very good.
Family restaurant but not any place for kids to rally play Very small beach area
Poor bartender service.

5 stars when they get rid of the bugs !

Stayed first week of January . Weather was very good . We stayed tower 1 6th floor , room spacious with 2 tvs , nice view of mountains and ocean . Noisy at times but after party goers go home very nice , with sound of waves crashing .
We really liked this resort ,but our legs are covered with bug bites . They have to be hiding in the lush landscaping . I had 40 bites , my wife 30 , and my daughter none . Our daughter never lay on sun lounger by pool . Could that be where the bugs are ?
Food was pretty good . We liked the taco bar by the beach for lunch . Many tacos Pastor were consumed there .
Service throughout our stay was excellent.
Activities and distractions are plenty . Our favourite was pool volleyball, they actually have a pool dedicated to volleyball it's shallow and in the shade . The animation team works hard , we liked Ricky Ricardo and Brenda .
There was no beach volleyball.
Tennis court is unplayable. They painted it with high gloss paint and it is too fast and slippery for players of skill . Please Barcelo you have to resurface that court , it wouldn't be that expensive to resurface , cracks are minimal .
The beach is very small and too rough for children and weak swimmers . No foul smelling seaweed here . Very pretty with rocky landscape .
We liked the compact nature of the resort . Everything just a short walk away . Friendly, very clean , nice location , pleasing rooms , food pretty good , service excellent ....if it wasn't for all these bug bites we would be planning our next vacation

Excellent All Inclusive Resort. We had Premier lodging. Huge 2 room end unit with ocean view. Long terraced balcony 9th floor
Excess to a premier lunch with top shelf spirits. Free of charge. Great pools. 6 restaurants. Very good food. Buffers as well. Staff was fantastic. No complaints.
Édgar the bartender was great. Pool entertainment Ricky and his partner were funny and did a great job. Would recommend this resort for sure. Room service 24 hours. Close to the zip lines
$25 taxi from the airport. Maybe cheaper?
.50 cent bus to the city -25 min
Veronica and Adriana were great as well
