    “Loved it!”

    Absolutely loved our stay at Barcelo Gran Faro! Food was great with every night having a different food theme at the buffet. Drinks were strong and delicious. Nightly entertainment was great. Our favorites were the International show, Michael Jackson show, the Mexican show and the beach party Fire show. Pools are open till late and the beach although is not swimmable we were still able to get in and enjoy. Beach is clean and beautiful. Entertainment staff were also amazing. Gladis and Omar are absolutely awesome. Very friendly, helpful and we're great at making you feel comfortable in joining the games and activities. Gladis and Omar helped make you feel at home. Would definitely recommend and visit again.

    “My 1st time at an All-Inclusive!”

    I went with a friend for a 7day stay and honestly while ready to be home was sad to leave the Barceló behind! I enjoyed the view so much and we spent most days in the cabana's on the beach. Very few people decide to lounge on the beach and I am at a complete loss as to why except it is difficult to get drink service out there and the sand is H-O-T. Laying out with that view thought was so gorgeous and peaceful. I didn't super enjoy the loud bingo and extracurriculars that they shout over the speakers daily but I'm sure some people loved participating in it. Wait staff is the best aspect of staying here though. So happy with the service and they just made the stay so much more magical. They seem genuinely interested in what we enjoy and where we're from and that we have a nice time. I definitely recommend tipping as regularly as possible due to the wages they make in Mexico and the fact that they have to work so much. I couldn't believe how many hours the staff seemed to be there. We made reservations for restaurants as soon as we got there and before even getting our room. We only had 1 day out of the 6nights where the reservations were full. It is a bit confusing that there aren't reservations available when tables are empty though. While we didn't spend that much time in the room, it was comfortable even if the beds were a bit hard. The patio was a highlight and I really enjoyed sleeping with the patio door open a crack and listening to the ocean waves all night. There was construction going on around San Jose and inside the hotel that wasn't amazing. The pools were salt water and I loved swimming in them although I wish they were open later. I enjoyed the shows and the skybar that is unique to this facility. The food was okay at the buffet but really enjoyed the restaurant - we did Seafood, Mexican and Italian and I highly recommend the Mexican of course - it was the best!!! Only part I was never impressed with was the desserts, nothing to write home about ; ) Loved the Barceló and recommend it to anyone looking to stay a ways from Cabo San Lucas and wants a quieter, less party scene than inside Cabo. Keep in mind if you are looking to go into town at times there is a bus 3-4blocks away that comes frequently and is only 37pesos into town. I also would've liked to order an activity to see the nightclubs in town but never got around to it.

    “Disappointed Customer”

    Sorry for the lengthy review; however, I am hopeful it will be helpful to other vacationers considering this resort. I vacationed with my family at this all-inclusive resort. We upgraded to an oceanview room, which had a great view. The room itself was mediocre, as the overall upkeep was very poor (including stained coverlet on bed, etc.). The food was substandard at the buffet (we opted to eat outside of the resort on several occasions). The hostesses at the buffet did not seem interested in greeting their guests; however, the waitstaff was very attentive and first-rate. Attempting to book reservations at the resorts' restaurants was a nightmare. We arrived at the reservation desk at the designated opening time; no one was there. Came back in an hour; no reservations were available for at least 2 days. We were informed they were booked by guests with premium access; had we known about premium privileges, we would have opted for it. Cheap Caribbean dropped the ball; we have used them several times without incident (we will rethink using them for our next trip). We were there for 5 days and was only able to get reservations for 1 dinner. We were informed that reservations couldn't be booked beyond the next day because they were not sure of which restaurants would be open. The entertainment at the resort was basically non-existent. On a positive note: we enjoyed our spa treatment immensely. It is highly unlikely we will visit this resort again.

    “1st time visit to Cabo & Barcelo-FABULOUS! LOVED IT!”

    Been to Mexico many times- Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Puerto Vallarta, Playa Maroma. Been to lots of fabulous hotels. Was a bit worried about going to Cabo since it was new territory for us. Family and I stayed at Barcelo and we loved it. While the hotel is not super fancy, it is very nice and the staff is exceptional. Everyone from front desk to entertainment crew, pool bartenders and waiters, restaurant staff (look out for Dennis at Las Olas-he is the best!) went out of their way to make our vacation amazing. This place is not party town, it is tranquil, relaxing, and the beach is beautiful. While you may not be able to swim, the days we were there the waves were out of this world spectacular. Worth just sitting down and watching the ocean waves with a great drink from the bar! Breakfasts at Las Olas every morning were yummy with marvelous views of the beach and great ocean breezes. We enjoyed the Sushi, Mexican, and Seafood restaurant. All 3 were delicious and again, the staff was spectacular. (Jesus @ Sushi and Roberto @ Mexican & Seafood will take good care of you!) My boys (19 &21) loved hanging out at the many different pools and at the Sky Bar (at the hotel) with terrific views of Cabo. My boys loved the hotel so much they did not want to leave to go to another beach for para-sailing, fishing, etc. Rest assured, whether you are going on a couples weekend get-away or a family vacation you will love Barcelo Gran Faro. We will be back next summer!

    “Juan Alvarez 😊”

    I love the care the staff takes of their guest. Mr.Alvarez is the manager at Las Olas which is the buffet. Being pregnant, I became ill and Mr. Alvarez and his staff brought me soup and a cool towel. They monitored my very closely and I really appreciate that. Overall the hotel is beautiful and anyone that comes here should have a great experience. I sure did!
