I'm not a big resort person--I always figured it would lack the cultural experience I look for when traveling abroad--but Barcelo Ixtapa Beach has mostly dispelled that concept. Or at least reassured me that it's possible to have both a cultural experience *and* stay at an all-inclusive resort. My friend and I were pleasantly surprised by the number of Mexican...

We’ve been to Los Cabos, Puerto Vallarta and the Riviera Maya but are so impressed with Ixtapa that we are already planning next year’s vacation – back to the Barcelo Beach. The rooms were very clean and ample for all our needs. Food was better than we have had at most all inclusives. But the 10th floor reasonably priced ocean...

We went to the Barcelo resort in Ixtapa for our Christmas break in 2010. Pluses: The reliable weather-- 84 degrees for nine straight days of our visit, was the real attraction. We have never stayed so close to the beach. From our window in the junior suite, we could see the kids playing in the ocean. The service was excellent--...

My wife and I had a terrific two week holiday at the Barcelo in Ixtapa. We booked this trip through West Jet Vacations and from start to finish everything was better than we expected. The resort provided excellent service. The food at the buffets and a la cartes was always very delicious. The service was exceptional. Our room was always...

My husband and I went to Ixtapa at the beginning of December to escape Canadian Winter. Ixtapa was a great place to visit. The weather was fantastic in this area. We enjoyed our stay at the Barcelo hotel. The hotel is a little dated, but we went down for the warmth and sun not the minor details. Our room was...

Have been to this Hotel many times before. This time management thought that letting 120 18 years olds celebrate their graduation for 3 days at their Hotel was a good thing. There were no programs to keep the young men and women busy, so all they had to do was drink in the pool bar, get sick in the pool...

Old and poorly taken care of hotel, bad food, very slow and poor service, ridiculous rules (can not eat by the pool), and old rooms. We managed to have a good time and adapt due to being a close group of friends, but we would never go back nor would we recommend this hotel.

We arrived at the Barcelo on Nov. 13. We recieved the ocean view room we had requested in our reservation. The view was the best thing about the room. The room was small but clean and the AC worked. The small fridge did not. The maid service was good, and the room did the job. The food selections on the...
