    “Excellent service by Abisai”

    The food at this resort is really good. Every restaurant we have eaten at has been excellent. Unfortunately, not all of the wait staff are as well trained and attentive as the food is good. However, there is one stand out and that is a young man named Abisai. He typically works in the colonial buffet restaurant at dinner. If you have him as your server you will feel like you’re in a five-star restaurant, even though it is a buffet. You will see what I mean if you stay here. He should be the trainer for the other waiters!

    “Absolutely amazing resort!”

    Fantastic resort with amazing staff and fantastic amenities. Met with Michelle Martinez and she talked about a tequila competition, the resort is trying to break a world record for tequila. Very inviting, very fun, very interesting.

    “Premium booking staff are no help”

    First off I am currently at the hotel as of March 20 2019 and will be here for 5 more days. I will limit this review to the failure of the hotels reservation, room assignments and Premium help at the resort. It would be unfair to grade the other parts of the property yet. I researched the property and found (along with friend) that we would like to stay at the Tropical Ocean front junior suite premium. We decided to book directly with the Barcelo and everything went according to plan until we arrived. I am travelling with my wife and 17 year old son. Upon checkin at 3:00 PM we were assigned room 6401 in the COLONIAL tower. This room does not have any view to speak of other than a kids park which is literally 30 feet away and in direct line with the ocean. This room also has a king bed and sofa not the double beds that 3 adults would need to sleep. The couch/bed that is in the room as well is only 4 feet long and my 17 year old is much taller than that. We immediately told the Premium desk of our issues (3 adults with only 2 sleeping accommodations) and were told a new bed would be coming shortly. This sounded great so we went about our business for a couple of hours. Back in our room at about 5:30 nothing had happened so we called again and it took over 10 minutes just to get someone on the phone. This is where it actually gets fun. I was told that there was nothing they could do. I am not sure they could understand that I paid for an actual place for 3 people to sleep and only had 2. On top of that I was staring at a bloddy kiddie pool and the noises that accompany that. After 15 minutes on the phone I was told to find Suoervisor Maria at the front desk. This is where I started losing it. I asked about 3 people if I could speak with Maria and I guess there was no Maria around as I received no help. At this point I return to my room and inform my family that I do not know what to do next. My son may need to sleep on the marble floor for 3 nights as this was the best option I had been given so far. I am told as well that all our friends are going out to have dinner together. Guess what we missed it. My family and I eventually make my way up to the Premium desk for the 3rd time to speak directly with someone in management hopefully. We spend close to an hour at the desk trying to have them understand we needed something done. It could have been a loaner bed for the night even. we can discuss further options the next day. I was flat up told there "is nothing we can do, sorry" multiple times. My wife finally lost it and explained that we did not even have pillow cases on the one bed in the room and had to leave. At this point we are 6 hour into this situation and multiple "phone calls" to the supervisor at the time and kept getting told the same thing that their can be nothing done for 3 days. Guess what happened with one more call to the supervisor after telling them I was going to their Facebook page to tell the thousands of followers what was going to happen? we received a room 3 doors down 15 minutes later with the 2 bed option. The room is still in the absolute worst location on the property for 3 adults but at least my son does not need to sleep on the floor. I did not receive an explanation why this was not given to use 6 hours and a wasted day and much unnecessary stress What a start to a Premium vacation :-(

    “Beautiful resort - HUGE - point form review”

    The beach Mostly soft and sandy with some rocky spots. Probably a 20 minute walk from end to end. The second last beack has a group of turtles that hang out there and are super friendly. They're used to getting fed so they stick around. The room Large, clean, modern and comfortable. Mini fridge with drinks that are restocked every day. Large comfortable bed and a cozy balcony. Large clean bathroom with a bath tub. Food The food was great with a large variety. Soft serve ice cream stations everywhere. We tried 3 A-la-Carte restaurants. The Italian was our favourite. Steak house was great and the Seafood restaurant was the only low point of the trip. The beach snack bar had a great selection for lunch, the main buffet was even better. Service The staff are amazing. So friendly and attentive. I could go on and on, but you get it. Grounds The grounds are upkept daily and are beautiful. There are 5 resorts attached to each other and are HUGE. You can spend all day walking and still no see everything. Check in Check in was a little slow, but not bad enough to fuss about. Overall this resort is amongst the nicest I've been to and I wouldn't hesitate to go back or recommend it.

    “Too big, industrialized, soulless”

    We went there for the Sundara music festival, and were astonished with the size of this hotel. Everything is so far away that you accumulate a lot of steps every day. Amazingly beautiful buildings, flower beds, and other constructions (they even have a full-size mall, it feels like back to US in there), but as much as the buildings, fountains, and statues are huge, clean, and beautiful – there are things that we didn't like at all: 1. the service is non-existent, I need internet for work, so to get it, I had to walk a mile to the lobby, then they sent me to customer service around the corner where I had to wait 30 minutes while some older couple were planning their dinner reservations. Then they gave me a paper and said that I had to go back to reception to pay it because they didn't have a card reader there. Another 15-minute line at the reception (because for some reason there's always one person serving a lot of customers – remember, the resort is huge – then finally back to customer service where I got a paper with a lot of codes and pins that I had to enter back in my room to finally get internet. On checkout, we had to spend over 30 minutes in the line again because there was just one person working the counter and he was not in a hurry. 2. The rooms are packed together with no sound isolation. We had to listen to a bunch of teenagers yelling all night across the wall. 3. The food is not that good, feels like an industrialized food conveyor to feed thousands of people, but the quality suffers. Was really hard to find something edible. We didn't like neither the festival nor the hotel, so we booked a different hotel, packed and left the next day.
