    “Amazing hotel!”

    This is a great hotel with an amazing staff! I was really impressed with the location, all the hotel facilities, the night shows, the food quality and the drinks. The wine selection was vast and affordable. I have to make a special mention to the staff. All of them were so polite, helpful. It just made the vacation unforgettable. Thanks!

    “Barcelo”

    All areas were will kept and always had people cleaned. Food had a lot of variety and was good. The Japanese Restaurant was very entertaining and the food was fantastic. Beach and pools were great to swim in.

    “Our second trip to the Barcelo”

    This was our second visit with 13 people and we received no savings or benefits. We felt the quality of rooms and food was better last year. Staff needs some good training. The casino staff were very rude and showed little interest in their job. The morning buffet staff were slow to clear the tables etc.

    “March break family trip”

    Based on the pros and cons I read about before departure here is my take on the resort. Trying to be as impartial as possible. Rooms: stayed in the family suites surrounding Barcy kids mini water park. Rooms were clean a little bit dated but had everything needed. Nice to have separate sleeping areas kids loved their "independence". We left early and arrived back by 5 to 6 pm room was always cleaned. Turn down service was an added perk. Thanks to the ladies that kept us organized and tidy. Barcy kids area looked really cool if you have younger kids I'd say 8 and under. Towels for pool and beach: never been to a resort with so many clean towels available. Didn't matter what time of day you could always exchange even as late as 530 pm. Towels are in your room don't lose them. Loungers: lots of loungers they get filled up by around 930 on the beach earlier by pool. Again availability much better than other resorts Beach: beautiful long beach very calm. There are some seaweed patches here and there between beach edge and swimming boundaries. The beach is raked every morning, one day there was seaweed at the shore the wind changed these things happen. The staff did work hard at raking through the day thank you for that. No one can control Mother Nature! Wifi: there was an upgrade of some sort done during our stay so was out for better part of 3days. Afterwards it didn't really help service is intermittent which is disappointing considering it is an additional charge. With so many resorts offering wifi Barcelo should reconsider their services on this front. Food and drink: many options at buffet, food is decent it's a buffet for those that complained good for how many people being fed. If you are a foodie look for gourmet style resorts they are out there. A la carte are fantastic but no options if you are vegan or vegetarian as my niece. We ended up having to take her to buffet so took away a bit from family dinners. Book your a la carte as soon as you arrive. Yes the wine is house wine ..... some a la carte only serve wine or beer Grounds: immaculate well cared for the resort is laid out extremely well. Guests pick up and throw out straws and plastic cups don't let them blow around it is embarrassing to possibly be seen as a visitor to the country that shows this type of disrespect in this day and age. If you see a cup don't kick it out of way pick it up and throw in the trash for goodness sakes. Staff overall very friendly and courteous. Service at buffet and pool bar beyond slow. My view they are understaffed and run ragged leading to almost apathy no way to keep up. Don't take it out on staff they are lovely individuals appears to be a management issue. Spoke to returning guests and they were shocked with the decline. Frustrating to see dozens of dirty tables at every meal and flagging down someone for a fork or knife. Try not to let this spoil your stay roll with it. Resort is beautiful and so are the staff. Management do something your resort is better than this. Costs I searched for and had a hard time finding Pool tables $5 per half hour Bowling $15 per person per game ....no surprise it was pretty much empty all week. Crazy expensive Wifi 15 per day per device or 50 for the week. You can use multiple devices but not at same time. I loved the excuse to disconnect. Golf this time of year 75 per person for the cart lol not so free 110 for golf cart food and drinks if you aren't a guest at resort. Really disappointing we couldn't afford to play the free golf would have been 300usd for carts plus rental. May have been a 25% discount that wouldn't even cover exchange for us Canadians. Family of 4. One somewhat surprising comment, the number of adults so intoxicated day or night they literally couldn't walk straight. On many occasions security and life guards helping people to their rooms. I have not seen this before at any resort I've stayed at. people control yourselves I love to indulge but use discretion it's a family place. I saw a maid helping a couple out of the bushes they fell off the sidewalk for goodness sakes like it was after prom for first time drinkers or something along those lines. That was an interesting thing to explain to my 12 year old. There were groups of teenagers and young adults they showed far better behaviour thanks for that for any of you reading this. Thanks also for including my sons in your volley ball games. Lots of fun with good judgement for public display. 3 generations 3 families something for everyone would visit again.
