How to Get There
Resort staff are super friendly and helpful. We upgraded to the premium package which turned out to be a great decision. We got personalized check-in and check-out service. We also got unlimited room-service. Though, we didn't take advantage of that because we enjoyed being in the restaurants and going to the beach afterwards. Beach was very calm and so warm, not crowded at all... just perfect. Although, I think some of us got jelly-fish stings.
Try all the restaurants. There's something for everyone. We enjoyed the Kyoto and Don Quixote the best. Kids also enjoyed hanging out at the snack bar in between swims.
The free City Tour was ok. I would rather skip the first part of the tour. It took you into the city, stops at silver shop and souvenir shop. But the 2nd half of the tour is to a tequila factory where we were educated on how tequilas are made and tasting. The restaurant food there was the best! Though, it was a little pricey.
The rooms could use an update. But overall, it was a nice size for our family of 4. Kids wished that there were more outlets for charging and electronics. Views from our room were fabulous.
We had such a good time. We'll come back for sure!
We heavily researched hotels before selecting the Barcelo and we were very pleased with our selection. If I was using this review for my research, here is what I would want to know:
Rooms - We chose a family suite with the premium package (just a few dollars more per guest). It put us on the 5th of 9 floors with a filtered view of the ocean. (Almost all rooms have filtered views). We were eye level with the palm trees and could look out over the garden, pool, ocean and jungle - our favorite view. The room was spacious with a comfortable King bed in the master and a separate room with two twin beds. This second room was dark as the windows are kept covered as they look out over the hallway. There were two bathrooms - spacious - with a rain shower head that provided plenty of water. We kept the AC on the entire time and the room remained a very comfortable. The room came with a well stocked mini fridge of sodas, beers and juices and a safe. The balcony was spacious and we watched many evening thundershowers from the seats. The rain never hampered our daytime activities - only coming in later in the evening around dinner time.
Restaurants - There is a main buffet that rotates meal themes daily - Although there are similarities throughout. There was always something good to eat. Fresh fruit and my son loved the fresh squeezed OJ. Overall it was quite satisfying given the nature of a buffet. The staff is incredibly helpful and nice and go out of there way to bring you anything you need. We did use each of the specialty restaurants. It was not difficult to book, although I believe it was because the hotel was probably not full. We were always able to get a reservation if we needed one, especially at the 7:00 hour which seems to be the early shift. The Don Quixote was the best by far. The rack of lamb was very good as well as the fresh halibut. The wait staff were exceptional. The others were equally good, but I would stay away from the Sushi restaurant - best view, but poorest meal. It is good to leave a tip at these restaurants and we were told 50 - 100 pesos was a good tip (17.1: 1 conversion rate at the hotel).
Grounds - The pools are large and a comfortable temp. No problems finding seating anytime during the day. The swim up bar was heavily used - mixed results on the quality of the drinks since they make them swiftly. Beach was beautiful, we swam and snorkeled - also took a boat to the nearby islands for better experience.
Have been here many times for anniversaries, graduation & just vacations.
Adeline does a super job arranging our transportation & offsite excursion.
Always look forward to seeing her.
Oscar in the buffet & outdoor restaurant took extra time to visit with us every time we saw him.
All the staff is friendly & courteous making this an great vacation. Thank you Barcelo!
