Stayed for one week at the resort. Had some great food. Enjoyed the pool activities. Spent lots of time in the hot tub relaxing with the warm sunshine. The beach appears to go on forever. We had a room on the 2nd floor and each section has three elevators to get down to the ground level. Went up in the...

Hi Everyone, I am writing this review to warn you about this resort. Although in general I love the Barcelo Hotels, this hotel is unfortunately not up to par. We arrived on a Wednesday and had club premium and ocean view superior rooms. Our room was 1406. The room itself is actually very nice, the view is great. The beach...

In the interest of full disclosure I must say that I'm not a fan of all-inclusive resorts. We stayed here only one night as we were in transit and heading off the grid for a few days. However, we were impressed with the level of service and professionalism of the staff and the food was varied and good. Lots of...

I'm at the lobby lounge right now. There are 8 people in line trying to get a drink & only ONE bartender! This is a huge problem at this resort. The staff are friendly & try their best, but they are hugely understaffed. Same goes for servers at restaurants & bartenders at the pool. To make this a great resort,...

The Barcelo was a great resort! The staff was great, especially the entertainment staff! Drinks and food were also great. Would definitely stay here again! Although you aren't supposed to go swimming many of us did, you just have to use caution.
