    “Outdated and sadly not a good representative for the brand name”

    Prior to staying here we did read some negative reviews but then thought 'its a Barcelo, they're great'. Unfortunately the negative reviews proved to be correct 1) Check in is a shambles with huge crowds everwhere 2) It isn't really a hotel for those from abroad - it's a great place for the local tourist marke though. 3) they insist on bad entertainment all day everyday with horrendous music at ear bursting levels. 4) Common toilets very dated / dirty and poor condition. The rooms themselves are dated but they use small double beds (4 feet wide) which isn't great for comfort. The rooms use chilled air not AC and this is noisy. 5) The all inclusive beer is okay but wine is terrible. 6) Paying for wifi thesedays is crazy if they want to be thought of as a luxury hotel - $12 a day per user is very expensive post 1997.... It probably was a great place when it opened (20+ years ago?) but is now very outdated and in reality overpriced even though it is all inclusive. The management need to accept that they need to move with the times and close down, refurb and reopen as this hotel is sadly currently very damaging to the brand name.

    “Very nice hotel”

    We enjoyed very much our stay at this hotel. The facilities are very nice and widespread. The food is great and with a lot of variety. The rooms are nice, but they are already showing their age. Overall cleanliness could be a little better. Mini bar is daily restocked with water and sodas. Service from everyone in the hotel was very good as well. The beach is nice. Shows were fantastic at nights. It's a really good option for an all inclusive hotel if you don't want to spend much.

    A discount* or promotional code (also appears as “promo code”) is a combination of letters and/or numbers that gives a discount on the normal rate. If you have a discount code, enter it when booking and you will receive a discount on your booking. Once you have entered this code, the prices shown in step 1 of the booking process will already include the relevant discount. 

    The discount does not apply to prices on extras and/or extra services, neither does it apply to prices on last available rooms. You can only apply one discount code per booking which will only be valid at the time of making your booking.** 

    The maximum amount of accumulated discount will be at most 25% off the rate for hotels in Latin America and at most 20% off the rate for European and Mediterranean hotels. It is possible to combine a discount code with a special discount*** (discounts when you book multiple rooms, senior, resident, millennials, large families, etc.) and the discount for being a my Barceló client. 

    *Barceló reserves the right to accept the application of advertised discounts. 

    **The application of the discount code is not valid upon arrival at the hotel; the discount is only applicable at the time of booking. 

    ***The hotel will request to see valid official documents to verify compliance with the conditions for the discount codes and special discounts. In the event of not providing valid official documents or non-compliance, the hotel reserves the right to charge the amounts that were deducted from the original reservation.
