ABSTRACT A smaller resort in the Playa Linda area with a convenient layout, a calm beach, outstanding staff, clean rooms and good food. It presents excellent value for those that know what to expect. It's drawbacks are a double edged sword in that they are also it's positives. As always, your satisfaction depends on what you are looking for....read on...

My husband and I went to Cancun for our honeymoon. We just got back a few days ago. On the flight back I told myself "you have to write a review". Before leaving on our trip I read some reviews and was so worried we would have an awful time because of the bad things said. Thankfully we had a...

Stayed at Barcelo Costa Cancun from Jan 29-Feb 13. We had room 106 and friends had room 203. We checked in at 8:00 and got room 203 right away....so nice to get a room that early. We received our 2nd room at 2:00 pm. It was so nice they could keep us close together. The staff were amazing, Marina the...

Let me start out by saying we have been to three all inclusive resorts in Mexico. The Crown Paradise in Puerto Vallarta, the Great Parnassus in Cancun, and the Royal Solaris also in Cancun. The Barcelo Costa was our forth trip to Cancun. Were not particularly fussy people, so things have to be pretty bad to cause a review we’re...

Let me start by saying that I worried about where we were going to stay. I researched, researched, and then researched some more. I checked reviews on every website out there. Now, there are positivie and negative reviews on EVERY resort out there. After all my hard work, I decided on Barcelo Costa Cancun. We just got back, and we...

I have read some of these trip reports and wonder if the poeple who write them have EVER travelled in their lives. We stayed in Barcello Furtevetura several weeks ago and enjoyed it. This hotel lacks any class whatsoever , its cheap and cheerful and clean. The food is a smash and grab buffet ... there isnt a lot worth...

We booked our trip with Travel Only, through Sean and Leanna MackayQuinn. We were very pleased from check in to check out, we were treated very well by all.

Our room was always spotless,...

We are a young couple and were headed on our first vacation together. We read some somewhat negative reviews before leaving but shrugged them off as reviews by malcontents. We assumed the negative reviews were written by people who wouldn't have been happy anywhere. However, after going into our vacation with high hopes and open minds we are very dissapointed....

My partner and I managed to get a last minute absolute bargain of a holiday to Barcelo Costa and we both really enjoyed ourselves although we both agreed that we wouldn't have wanted to have paid any more. The food at the Hotel was excellent and it was lovely to be able to choose so many places to eat. It...

Out of the 12 rooms we booked, almost 50% of them had no functioning AC. Several rooms had a sewer smell as you entered. Front desk not very helpful, slow service at all eating places, (only has 4), food only so-so. Nice beach, but small. Bartenders seemed to only grudgingly get your drinks. Cocktail servers, however, were very good. We...
