Barcelo

Welcome to the Barceló Group

The Barceló Group was established in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, more than 80 years ago. It is a leading Spanish tourism company and one of the largest in the world. The group is owned by the Barceló family and has been run by three generations of family members.

The company’s hotel section has over 100 hotels in 20 countries and its travel section has 685 travel agencies in 22 countries. These figures position it as the fourth largest hotel chain in Spain, the leading Spanish hotel company in the United States, and the thirtieth largest in the World.

The company currently employs 26,000 people. In 2007 it was awarded the Prince Felipe Award for Business Excellence, in the category of Business Competitiveness – Large Company.

Although its origins are to be found in the sun and beach holiday section, in recent years the Barceló Group, through its hotel section, has gained weight in the urban section, achieving a balance in its current portfolio, with 50% attributed to its holiday hotels and the 50% to the city.

Another generational change, carried out to adapt to the new market trends, has led the Mallorcan Group to position itself in the high end of the market, currently making 9 of each of its 10 establishments of 4 or 5 stars, and that two out of three of its hotels are new or have been recently refurbished.

Founded in 1931.

More than 100 hotels and 685 travel agencies on 4 continents.
