    “One of our best trips to Mexico!”

    My wife and I stayed here November - December 2018. It was our first time to this region, we've been to the Mayan side, Cancun, and further north to Cabo, Puerto Vallarta etc. but will definitely be back to Huatulco. We paid a little more for the premium service which works out to a couple hundred dollars per person and is totally worth it. Considering the wifi is an extra $10 / day per person you're almost half way there anyway. The premium gets you an upgraded ocean front room, premium bar drinks, preferred service at all the bars, discount at the stores, and the ability to reserve all a la carte restaurants in advance for the week. Definitely a good deal. Resort is right on the beach, which is beautiful and sandy, but the water usually rough. Food was very good at all restaurants, service was good as well.. not a huge selection at the buffet but it changed daily and the quality was excellent. Drinks were great, but again I asked for the premium liquor or coronas even around the pool. Service was excellent from check in to check out. If you want to go deep sea fishing, snorkeling, see the dolphins or turtles look for Roberto on the beach. He's been there for 22 years. We did all of the above, my wife and I, private charter for the 2 of us for $125 per person. Beach vendors are very friendly and prices very negotiable, prices are also excellent at the market in town. Our only strong advice is take a good bug spray with deet as no see ums are bad on the beach and around the resort. The resort only carries an environmentally friendly citronella spray which doesn't work. We will definitely be back.

    “Amazing experience”

    This was our first time in Huatulco and it was an amazing experience all around. Cosette at the front desk was absolutely incredible with everything we needed. Saul is a machine, the guy was running drinks all over the pool area but talking and laughing with every single person. We upgraded to premium when we got there and it was absolutely worth it. From not having to wait in line to make reservations to the private lounge area and the incredible ocean view room I would do it again without question. The resort was immaculate, and the guard hawk keeping the grackles away was a nice bonus. The food was always flavorful and well cooked, the staff is happy and friendly. Also all water activities without an engine was free to use. This is my new favorite place in Mexico hands down and I can't wait to go back.

    “Friendly and Beautiful”

    My family and I had a great vacation at the Barcelo Huatulco! This was our first visit to Huatulco, but it is one of the friendliest, cleanest places I have ever been to. The Resort itself was immaculate and the staff was very friendly. Alma at the Barcy Club (kids club) was fantastic with the kids and Saul provided us amazing drink service around the pool! The pools were great, the ocean was great and there was always lots of things to do! I will visit again! Soon, I hope!

    “3rd Visit!”

    This resort is a true gem in the heart of Tangolunda Bay. We had a group of 20 (10 adults 10 children) and everybody enjoyed themselves thoroughly. The customer service is truly second to none. Luis in the lunch buffet is always amazing, Saul, Jose, and Noe kept our drinks full around the pool daily and were a delight to talk with. The layout of the resort is great with everything being just a few short steps away. Tony Lopez has handled our boat trips all 3 years and looked after every detail for us again. The Kids really enjoyed the kids club in the afternoon for a little break from the pool. We have traveled many all inclusives but we have definitely found home at the Barcelo Huatulco! We will no doubt be back for a 4th visit.

    “Disappointed in Fitness Centre Policy”

    We just checked in yesterday. My 16 year old daughter was not allowed to use the fitness centre because she is under 18, even under my direct supervision. This restriction is not posted anywhere on the hotel’s website. It wasn’t until we arrived at the fitness centre this morning that the policy was brought to our attention. Despite requesting this policy be reconsidered, the staff and management did not budge. We would have chosen another resort had we known this. Our daughter works out regularly at home and knows how to use the equipment. We’ve never encountered this before and will certainly not be returning to Barcelo Huatulco. Not because it wasn’t nice, but the resort’s absolute unwillingness to bend was a huge disappointment. Also, the food has been a bit of a let down. We’ve just gone to the two buffet restaurants, but they’ve been out of certain dishes and you have to stand around waiting for them to make more. I asked 3 different waiters to have the tortilla bowl at La Tortuga restaurant refilled at lunch. It took 20 minutes to respond. A request for Spanish coffees after supper last night got us 2 regular cups of coffee and not even cream. The waitress didn’t ask if this was what we wanted - just dropped them off and left. We still aren’t certain about the potability of the water in our room - we had 2 staff tell us it was okay to drink, but 2 others said no. Obviously we’re erring on the side of caution. Otherwise the resort is nice; quiet and not terribly busy for the first week of December. The weather is awesome- low 30’s, slight breeze. Cervezas are cold and the locals are very friendly. That’s it for now - end of first full day here.
