IDecember 2007 I was on a family trip to Mexico we decided to stay at the Barcelo based on a family recommendation. We checked the internet for reservation and cost. There were rooms available and due to it being HIGH SEASON, the rates were quite steep. However we were ready to pay for a 4 star resort. The dates were... More

This resort was absolutely perfect!!!!! I really do not understand why it has received any negative reviews at all. We were there for 10 days and everything was fantastic-the rooms, the food, the staff, the pools, the grounds, the spa, the shows-the whole package!! The only thing I can think of is that those who gave negative reviews are extremely... More

We stayed at this hotel Dec 11-25, 2007 and would definitely recommend it. The a al carte restaurants were great (try the baked cheese that the waiter flambes at your table at Habenero's and the marg at Carioca's). The bathrooms were amazing - all marble and two sinks, one on each side of the room separated by a shower stall,... More

My wife and I spent 3 nights at the Karmina Palace over the Thanksgiving holiday. This was our first experience with an all-inclusive resort and our first time in Manzanillo.

The resort is far from the 4 1/2 stars it was advertised as...at least by American standards. I would give it 3 stars. It was clean and the staff were friendly but not neccesarily helpful.
