The Barcelo was everything we dreamed of as we had our wedding here May 16, 2017! It exceeded our exceptions for sure! We wanted a nice secluded area outside of puerto Vallarta and mismaloya was perfect! The restaurants were all good and the a la cartes were easy to get into and accommodated most of the wedding party each night...

Everyone here is so very friendly. Norma at the buffet front desk remembered our name and room number after a couple of days.

Overall the resort was beautiful. We were a little disappointed with the beach area as it is quite small but the pool was well kept and clean. The foliage/trees/flowers were absolutely stunning! Staff was great, Tony at the Cantina and two other bartenders (didn't get their names) were really wonderful, always happy and smiling, sometimes singing! Elizabeth Gavino, entertainment staff,...

My family had a great time at this resort! The room layouts are perfect for families. The resort is small enough to get around quickly enough. Our server in the buffet, Oscar Martinez, was AMAZING! He catered to a family of 14, 7 of them being young children, effortlessly. The beach area is not expansive, but overall we enjoyed this...
