    “My Stay at Barcelo”

    I stayed at Barcelo, Puerto Vallarta for six days. It was overall and amazing experience. As soon as you step into Barcelo you are treated excellently. Everyone is attentive and is ready to assist you should you need it. I heard a lot of negative opinions regarding all-inclusive hotels and food but this hotel went past all my expectations. There was a great variety of food and it was all so fresh and delicious. There were times i was not hungry but the food was too good to pass up. The only thing I felt was worth noting is that there doesn't seem to be any division between children and adults. There were children at the pool bar and at the Cantina, many of them unsupervised. It did not seem appropriate. I did enjoy my time at Barcelo and I would gladly visit again.

    “Relaxing family getaway for spring break”

    Our family of four enjoyed a relaxing spring break vacation to this resort. The pools are amazing. My 4yo and 8yo daughters loved the slide in the kiddie pool. We all loved the pool with the waterfalls you could swim through. Excellent service and clean rooms. The two showers in our rooms were not great, but otherwise very happy with the rooms. One shower drained rather slowly and the other had an adjustable shower head that wouldn't stay up very well. We managed. Beds were very comfy, air conditioner worked well, and balcony was excellent with a great view and drying racks. Restaurants were good. Breakfast was the highlight. We all found food we loved and sat outside on the patio every morning. Lunch we ate in the cafe with burger and hotdogs for the kids, tacos for us. Dinner was tricky. Get a good handle on the reservation process for the nice restaurants when you check in. It tripped us up a bit and we were in the premium tower. The Spanish restaurant had excellent food, but we were too close to the piano and it was very loud. The Italian restaurant was wonderful all around. The buffet was decent at dinner, not great. The premium tower was good for WiFi. There was some noise by the pools at night, but we were too tired to be bothered by it. We enjoyed the beach a couple of times, but mostly went to the pools. I love the somewhat isolated location. It was very good value. Kids loved painting the ceramic sculptures. Sadly our youngest was too young to go to the kids' club by herself so we didn't take advantage of that. And the kids were always too tired to go to the shows after dinner. We're very happy with our stay and would gladly stay here again if we're ever in the area.

    “Beautiful Resort-Can't wait to return!”

    Hello from BC, Canada! This review is for our trip from April 1st to the 8th of 2018. We are a 49 year old husband & wife who have traveled to Mexico many times, mostly within Puerto Vallarta, once to Cancun, once to Cabo San Lucas and to Cuba. Most often, we are joined by our children who are all now in their 20's. I tell you this so as you read this review you understand a bit about our demographic...you aren't left wondering if we are in our 80's or are first time travelers in our 20's! This was our first visit to the Barcelo resort in PV and we LOVED IT!! It was every bit as beautiful as the pictures and reviews said it would be. We chose Barcelo because of the location, in Mismaloya Bay. Our adult kids did not join this trip so it wasn't important to us to be close to the clubs down the Malecon. Having said that, if they would have joined it is only a 20 minute cab ride from the resort. We went into the Malecon on one of our days and chose to use Uber and the price (although fluctuating) was very reasonable. $98 pesos there and $108 pesos to get back. It took about 40 minutes to get from the airport to the resort. A scenic drive along the ocean (for the last bit) and is such a beautiful property to arrive at once you are there. It is just like they say, nestled in the jungle! They take very good care of the entire property, inside and out. Very pretty and well maintained. Rooms: Spacious & tastefully decorated...warm & inviting, King size bed with really comfy mattress and pillows, Bathroom is large & beautifully tiled; walk-in shower with shampoo/conditioner dispenser on wall; large fluffy towels; shower head is a rain shower type, from the ceiling. A good blow dryer, Mini fridge stocked daily with soft drinks, beer & bottled water, large balcony with table & chairs; outlet; hanging rack for wet clothes, screen doors on the patio doors. All rooms in both towers face ocean/pool areas. We had a room on the sixth floor in tower 1. Although we can't give an opinion on the pros & cons of tower 1 vs. tower 2, we were really happy to be in tower 1. We had morning sun on the balcony and shade in the afternoon whereas tower 2 seems to be the opposite...we are thinking that the afternoon sun on those balconies would be pretty warm. We never put the air conditioner on once...may be the time of year. If you sleep with the patio door open you can hear the music & laughter late into the evening...if you don't want to hear it, shut your doors! If you ever want to (because you are that energetic vacationer wanting to wear off the pina coladas, cervezas or desserts) the stairwells in this resort are beautiful, open-air and are as much a part of the building as the rooms or lobby. Other resorts we've been to have not been like this. Worth noting: there is a ice/water bottle refill machine on every floor, near the stairs. Nice touch! Food: Loved the buffet area, from the view to the options; the food was delicious and varied; salad bar every night, fresh fruit every morning. Really enjoyed the fresh pasta station (LOVED Jose who made us our delicious pasta dishes - with such a big, beautiful smile!); depending on the time you eat, the lineup to get a fresh omelet made in the am could be long but lots of options if you don't want to wait. Freshly squeezed orange juice every day...so pulpy - yum! Soft-serve, self-serve 'ice cream' dispensers (iced milk) Fresh salsa & guacamole with fresh chips at Los Arcos Grill/Snack, restaurant; also a wood fire oven for thin crust pizza...delicious food. Both Al la Carte restaurants and Indoor buffet areas can accommodate large groups no problem. 4 Al la Carte restaurants...beautifully decorated - you need to make reservations but can be done any time during the day. We ate at the Italian and the Spanish...both were good but really enjoyed the Spanish; we enjoyed the buffet so chose to mostly eat there. Everyone that works in these areas from, the ladies that hostess to the men & women that serve, are genuinely friendly and nice - especially Oscar (Martinez) in the buffet. He remembered our names early on and it made us feel very welcome...nice job! Coffee: If you are an early morning riser/coffee drinker they have great coffee just inside the doors of the buffet at 7 am. Bring your mug from the room if you prefer coffee in a mug vs the paper cup to enjoy around the pool. If I had a wish it would've been that there was an assortment of sweets available at the coffee table to have with your morning coffee (muffin/cookie). (I did grab some later in my week from the buffet area but I wasn't sure if that was okay as there were other signs posted about not taking food out of the restaurants; there is no eating allowed around the pool area) Pools: Two large pool areas ....both very beautiful Pool 1 - heated, has swim-up bar, music, activities, near tower 1. Pool 2 - not heated but nice temp., quieter, has hot tub, swim-through waterfall, hammocks, close to snack restaurant, near tower 2 *there is a beautiful bathroom nestled in the foliage between the two main pools...we didn't see it till a few days into our stay. Separate pool for volleyball and water polo. Separate kiddy pool with slide. Lifeguards wandering the pool & beach area daily. Beautiful bathrooms in lower areas of the towers as well. Entertainment staff around pool is as good as the people that choose to join in in the fun. Reserving chairs doesn't seem to be an issue here; we found that most of the 'good' chairs were gone by 8 am so if you want a certain spot you need to get up early and put your towel down. Within the resort there are some very nice gift, jewelry and convenience stores...so if you want to buy vanilla, knick-knacks and such it is an option. There is a nice gym to work out in if that is your thing. There is also a nice Kids Club program here. Just want to say how much we enjoyed Felix in the Cantina Bar - thank you for your friendliness & great service! We had read that the beach area is not very big but that isn't our feeling. We frequently wandered the beach, enjoying the Mismaloya Bay. There are restaurants right on the beach where you can sip a Corona and enjoy meal, have a massage listening to the ocean waves crash, rent a jet ski or a SUP or hire a boat to take you out for a ride or a fishing trip....it really is just a beautiful place to be. PACK BUG SPRAY. We got bit on this trip more than we ever have, but it does seem to be mainly when you leave the resort and spend time on the beach. Not mosquitoes...maybe no-see-ums? We never noticed them around the resort. We definitely plan to go back, bringing with us family and friends. It was a truly beautiful place to holiday!

    “Very relaxing experience”

    This was a great family vacation. We were there for one week and loved are time there. We will definitely go back again and recommend it. Just not the Capri restaurant. That was not a good experience. Service was poor and food was aweful. The rest of the resort was excellent.

    “Family Suites”

    Our family of 4 stayed at the Barcelo for 1 week. We had a great time and enjoyed all the amenities very much. The premium lounge was a good place to get specialty drinks (like fine wine and Crown Royal). The hosts were very helpful. This resort is very clean and well maintained. The beach is small and busy but a nice morning walk on the iguana trail is a great way to start the day and chat with the fishermen getting their boats ready for tours. We felt very safe and well taken care of. The “paint your own pottery” stand was so much fun , my daughter and I could have done it every day; no worries, the amigo that runs it makes your work look professional. We got mani-pedi’s at the spa, they were basic but again very nicely executed. The free photo shoot was a good opportunities for us to have family portraits done, there was a language barrier but we figured it out and had lots of laughs. The 2 bedroom suite was very spacious and the view was fantastic, we watched the sun set every night from our balcony. Mismaloya is a small, quiet area south of the city, not much night life but we were ok with that. Overall, we had a great time and may even return one day, the only reason we may not is México is a big country with lots of beautiful places to visit and we like to experience something new each trip.
