    “the usual winter holiday in Mexico”

    This is an older hotel, most of them are. Nice area a bit north of Zihautenejo, Very nice beach, nice shopping nearby, great scenery. Food was decent, maybe not excellent by Canadian/USA standards but very good and the service was excellent. Was very nice to see some familiar faces from last year. Not as busy as it was in the past, maybe a bit due to the political situation to the north. Our room was great, view of the pools and ocean, quiet and clean. Like all trips to Mexico, be a bit flexible, keep an open mind, look around, enjoy yourself.

    “Trip # 11 or 12”

    Hola, we arrive in Ixtapa in 4 days on the 17th of Feb for 5 weeks, We (Jackie and I) are really looking forward to our visit. In all the times we have visited Ixtapa we have never had any problems, The main reason we keep coming back is because of the Hotel staff they arrive amazing people putting in long hours doing their best to accommodate everyone, This trip is special because we will be celebrating our 48th wedding anniversary on 14th of March. Hope to see a lot of you guys, once again I'll be the old guy in the black Stetson.

    “Outstanding Resort”

    We stayed at the Barceló this past Jan for 10 days. This was our second stay at this resort. Once again, the food, service, entertainment, housekeeping were excellent and top notch. Everyone was friendly, helpful and prompt service. The pool areas were clean, resort grounds very well maintained and restaurants were clean with excellent food choices. I would like to say a huge "thank you" to a fabulous employee Lizbeth Herrara. She is Assistant Manager of the resort. I had left behind articles in my room. The wonderful lady in housekeeping, Tomasa, brought them to security after I had checked out. After emailing Lizbeth, my articles are being shipped back to me and even laundered! I cannot express the gratefulness of the amazing staff who made sure my belongings are being returned to me. The reputation of this resort and the staff, are stellar in their work and service to travelers. I will be definitely returning to this resort again and again. Thank you again Liz and Tomasa!

    “A safe bet”

    We stayed at the Barcelo from Jan 16th to the 23rd 2018 -Unsure of where to stay. This place is a safe bet. Pros: -On a very nice beach! Area is very hot. -In the hotel zone in Ixtapa -Food was great! Had no issues with this and was above average! -Front desk! When we arrived had an issue with our room and they changed it right away! -All staff were very friendly and accommodating! -Almost everyone was bilingual! -Staff were helpful and genuinely cared. -Bus station one block up -Taxis are available just outside the gate -Bars were good and served drinks! -Air-conditioning in our room worked good -Hotel puts on a show every night! -Pools were awesome! Cleaned everyday. -Property and hotel were very clean! and maintained. -Atrium was awesome. One of the reasons we booked this hotel. -Hotel was quiet in the morning. Music did not start till 9-10 am. Was nice to walk around at sunrise with just the sounds of the ocean. -Older crowd. Average age of 30 and up. -20 min from airport. -Fridge was stocked everyday. Cons: - We found the restaurants in the hotel to be confusing when they were and were not open. However you walk 10 meters and you were at the next one so it did not matter to much -Premium upgrade was expensive when we were down, (Was included when we went to Barcelo Cancun) - Sushi À la carte had drinks on menu not covered by any plan? (However they did offer over drinks that were covered by all inclusive plan) -No free internet. Internet is very expensive. Overall: -A very safe bet if you have read all the other reviews from other hotels in the area. Tips: -Take the bus to Playa Linda (1 USD each), Take boat to ixtapa island ($3.00 USD each) -Grocery Stores: -Sams Club -Mega Store (Like Walmart, Looked like every ex-pat in town shopped there! lol) -Bodegas -Not the best resort that I have stayed at. However very little to complain about and a solid choice!

    “False Advertising”

    Do not be taken in by the resort credit or all inclusive... the credit is a discount off of services broken up between numerous services which was never actually explained,. The all inclusive comes with hidden fees and certain terms that are not clear... it comes across very deceptive. Additionally, the staff is not overly friendly...

    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.

    If you find a better rate, we will top it.

    We will return the difference and we will also apply an additional 10% discount to the cost of the final booking. For more information...
