    “Awesome vacation!”

    Rendy was an amazing bartender who provided excellent service! Very fun and energetic. Can’t leave out Gabriella, Santiago, ayshell, Carolina and many others who also all made our vacation special! The show staff was fun as well, including Allen and other staff! Can’t wait to go back!

    “Amazing Trip... AGAIN!”

    Another year equals another amazing trip to Barcelo! Our most recent trip (November 28th-December 7th) was no different. It's always a pleasure to catch up with the entire staff. In particular, the Royal Club staff sure knows how to make their owners feel welcomed and happy-- Sandra and Veronica, you definitely went above and beyond this year! :) Additionally, the entire Royal Club restaurant staff, especially Melvin, George, Ederlina and Joyce outdid themselves, as well. As always, thank you for all of your dedication and amazing customer service! :)

    “Day pass not worth it”

    We did a day pass and this place was sub par. Even if you are a hotel guest the only ones on the beach that can use the beach bar are royal level guests. All others need to walk all the way back to the pool for very slow inattentive service. The 3 waiters that did take our orders never actually returned. We eventually got tired of no shade on the beach and migrated to the pool. Still little device and the only chairs were broken. We had a day pass to stay till 6pm...we left by 2:45.

    “Barcelo”

    Great location but insufficient pool/beach chairs. No good outdoor bar, pool bar is small and loud. You have to get up at 6:30 in the morning to try to reserve a palapa. While the beach is public, staff makes no effort to monitor palapa use by non-guests in the afternoon. Hotel tends to draw an obnoxiously loud younger crowd (compared to the nearby hotels). Would not stay there again.

    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.
