If you are looking for a hotel with scads of people, pool volleyball and sloshing drinks – this is the location for you. We were looking for romance, tranquility and private time. This was the wrong spot. Located in the heart of tourist-ville, there were people everywhere you looked. It was clean, has a welcoming lobby and within walking distance...

A group of friends on an annual trip to Mexico found the Barcelo to be everything we expected. Great beach, nice rooms with views, front desk very accommodating, pools clean. The entertainment was the best we have ever had in 15 years of Mexico travel. Food was good, a little repetitious but plentiful and fresh. I highly recommend and I...

We just returned from a 1 week stay at the Barcelo. Upon arrival we were pleasantly surprised to get a room overlooking the pool and front ocean view. Wow! The room itself was nice, small table and 2 chairs, lots of dresser drawers, large closet with free safe, iron and ironing board, 2 double beds - one was very lumpy...

This is a true hidden gem in Mexico. The hotel rooms are out of date, but if you are spending your time in the room you have a problem. Food was hit or miss, drinks flowed free. Planning on going back! Most staff can understand english, but speaking it is another story. I took $100 in crisp new ones, and...

My husband & I stayed here for 7 nights & loved it. The food was good & the staff wonderful. We found a wonderful & friendly bar next to Senor Frogs called El Infierno Y La Gloria. Javier is the fellow who served us & did a wonderful jobh. I would recomend this to all travellers to Ixtapa.

My husband and I just got back from a week at Barcelo. While sipping a pina colada on our last night we went over the pros and cons of our trip with the question would we come back to the Barcelo as well. The pros, the wonderful beach (the best we've been to and we've been to PV, NV, Mazatlan...

Although this hotel is good, there are a number of items which make it a 3 star in my book. Of the seven nights we were there, the main buffet was closed for three of them. If you had not booked one of the specialty restaurants, you had to go to the 'fiestas' which sit you at tables of 10....

We booked this hotel from word of mouth of people we knew who had been there and also used Trip Advisor alot. Since we enjoyed ourselves so much and found Trip Advisor so useful I wanted to let everyone know how the trip went. Used Apple Vacations. Was happy with that except the fact that we had the Honeymoon deal...

Just got back from the Barcelo Ixtapa. This is our second year in a row there. Overall I would say that it hasn't changed much (literally). The food is the same, the shows are the same - so if you were there last year and saw the shows - as far as we were concerned they were identical but we...
