Avoid Barcelo staff but hotel staff is great

My hotel was excellent! My only regret is buying my Xcaret, Xplor, and Xel-ha entrances online with barcelo.com

Your best bet is to only get your stay at barcelo.com and get your entrances and transportation at the Trips center. They're a 3rd party and transportation is well-organized.
If you did already buy your park entrances through barcelo.com, be sure to check in with them at the lobby when your cabby drops you off before you go to your receptionist for your room.

Not worth it guys

Save your money not worth it, food is poor and not much better in restaurants, staff always trying to sell you time share, not enough staff at beach bar and trust me you need a drink once you walked alway to beach as trams don’t stop, only Moses picked us up, other drivers only seem to look after the royal guests, paid ticket to go into park only to find out you after pay extra once your in there what a con, watch money at atm machine if you receive any money that has been written on then only good for toilet paper cos they won’t except it anywhere, shop is very very expensive for snacks, bathroom in room leaked water from ceiling down wall and onto toilet (3 attempts before fixed) towel rail hanging off wall, sheets not cleaned daily just redressed on bed, wifi is a joke you get 10mins free or you have to pay, you spend 9 grand on a holiday and wifi is extra wow, only high light is the people we’ve met here and they departure date, very disappointed and as you probably guessed will not be returning..

Don’t go

Don’t go. Staff is nice but the cleanliness standard is just not there in any of the restaurants. Have of the wedding party had the stomach flu by day four and I personally was hospitalized and I am just now getting back to normal after 13 days.
