    “Average Stay-Do not have your expectations very high!!!”

    The hotel presents itself as a great service hotel; which in my opinion it is not. I have the following comments: -Food is very bad, the presentation at the buffets is terrible. They do not have enough people to service many guests at the same time. They ran out of certain dishes. -The “nice” restaurants with reservations have very bad food with no taste at all; they have a very dumb dress code. If they enforce a dress code I would expect excellent food (which they do not serve). -The room is old but ok; our WC did not work properly and I wasted a lot of water (they claim to save the environment). I called 1 time and asked personnel on the floor to service and they never did on our 5 day stay. -The rooms need minor touchups. -The roof on my sisters’ entrance to the room fell; and it took 3 days to fix. -The service personnel is very friendly; but I think they do not have the training or support staff. -I heard the owner was at the hotel and I was given his table where he was supposed to eat breakfast but never arrived. I expected service and food to improve but it never happened. This is all the bad points I have to mention but it is a good hotel; just do not expect much as I did before our arrival.

    “Another nice and relaxing vacation at the Barcelo...”

    Another summer vacation spent at the Barceló. We stayed at the Colonial this summer, 7/7-7/12 and again had a nice, relaxing vacation. The property remains well kept, beautiful and the beach can not be beat. The staff and atmosphere is great. We love spending our summer vacation at the Barceló and look forward to returning.

    “AMAZING”

    We had an awesome time here. Best resort I've been to. Highly recommend it for families, friends, couples. Staff members were very friendly, they will make sure you aren't sober. Enjoyed our visit here.

    “This was an average stay for us.”

    We had this trip to Riviera for a wedding. That was the only reason we stayed at this resort. I have to say that we were surprised with an upgraded room and got a full suite. It was just Ok. Clean, spacious, but old style furniture. The suite had a big balcony with a small patio set. We never used it as it was hot and humid to be outside and no air running over there. The bedroom was also of good size but again, it looked old. The bed was comfortable though. One thing that I just hated was the shower. It looked dirty all the time. The hotel is huge, actually there are 5 hotels one next to the other. I can tell that the pools were not as clean as one may expect. I saw one guy taking out a ball of hair and plants from the pool culvert. We couldn't try any of the 'a la carte' restaurants as they we all reserved.. even for the next 3 days. First time this happened to us in an all inclusive.. so, what's included other than buffet food? By the way, there was just basic stuff at the grills and buffet style restaurants. I have to day we loved the guacamole and totopos. We ended eating gilled chicken every day. One thing I liked is that there is a Dressel Divers shop at the beach and the dock to go out diving is just some 100 meters from there. I went diving one day and it was a great experience. I don't think we will return to this hotel.

    “Our week guest”

    Good Resort, location is good the resort it self is large and well organized but the food is decent. alcohol is very cheap. They need a place on the resort where you can buy good food or good drinks. Go when food is fresh and it is good. You can ask the grill person to grill you tortillas and you can use those to make tacos!! no one knew of this
