Upon arriving at the Manzanillo, we had the smoothest check-in right after leaving he plain at the airport, at the resort everyone understood English. The rooms were large withe nice double sink bathroom and soaker tub. Great balcony and also a room just to sit and have a conversation at a table. The food: Excellent choice of buffet variety with...

It's a grand hotel, with a majestic lobby and immaculately maintained beautiful landscaping and grounds. You could imagine how impressive the resort would have been in 1999, when the resort was built. It's still beautiful but the rooms and furnishings could now use a bit of updating. Having said that, the rooms are spacious, especially the bathrooms with its double...

An excellent all inclusive hotel in the sun and heat where to lay back and relax. Although it does not have a very good beach and not much wave action it does have a good selection of pools to chose from. The a la carte restaurants are very good and the buffet is right behind them for quality and selection.

We liked everything about this hotel excepting the limited access to walk along the public beach. The hotel's beach is very small and given the amount of coral, there are not many choices for standing neck deep or waist deep in the water. I was nipped a few times by fish - no marks left, but this was startling. I...

Definitely will return to this hotel. Staff friendly, food at the buffet had lots of choice for all liking. The Mexican a la Carte restaurant was not to everyones taste, therefore, read the menu before you book. Went deep see fishing reserved thru the hotel and after 5 hours, we caught a "Rock fish".

Okay let's be honest here. We stayed at Barcelo for 2 weeks starting Feb 22nd. We should have left the hotel when we entered into our room and a maintenance man had a huge bug sprayer in his hands. Then I slipped on the water from the air conditioner dripping on the floor. Our first a la carte was in...
