    “Needs a 2018 adjustment”

    Spent a week at Barcelo Karmina and would rate this hotel 3.5 to 4 star. The Karmina is a bit dated and some of the furniture in the rooms, like the sofas desperately needs replacing. You know it is warn out when you sink below the front edge of the couch. The rooms are the usual large spacious rooms, with large king sized beds that were comfortable and very clean with good linens. The bathrooms were large but again desperately need updating. Especially the lighting. I am not certain why hotels insist on these large soaker tubs which I am certain are rarely used by guests. Loved the large bath sheet sized towels. The Barcelo chain really needs to consider their antiquated policy on charging for wifi. This is such an outdated mode of thinking and most quests complained that there was not free wifi throughout the resort. This is not really keeping up,with the realities of living in 2018 where travellers young and old see this as a necessity to keep in communication with family and with their offices or businesses. FAILING GRADE BARCELO. The pools were cold and overly cra,pedbwith loungers jammed in to,the point it was impossible to move. Many of the sun unbrellaa did not work and need updating. The largest complaint was really about the services by staff at this resort. I do however want to mention that Israel, Neo, and Jesus were the exceptions and ere warm freidly and attentive. Most of the staff seems to ignore their tables and constantly need to be reminded to bring the coffee, juice or fill the water glasses. They pool side staff were so few that is simply was easier to go and get your own drinks. Although other reviews have complained about the food, I must say that overall we found the food to be good, except for the Mexican restaurant. I did not appreciate the fact that the Japanese’s restaurant was closed for most of the 7 days we were at the resort and we were not able to get a reservation. It is apparent that the resort was not that busy and it appeared that many adjustments were made to accommodate the lack,of business as in lack of staffing, few choices at the buffets and an obvious lack of deserts at dinner. I would definately not give this resort more than a 4 star rating. In fact it falls for me between 3.5 and 4.

    “Perfect Vacation”

    It was a SunWing vacation booked through Expedia, everything was perfectly arranged from the moment we arrived at the Airport in Manzanillo, followed by the check in where we had SunWing representative having the rooms assigned and had a booking for the Ala Card restaurants booking ready for us, with option to change. The resort is well maintained, clean and beautiful, food was great and the meal times were amazing that you do not need to run for or get up early to catch. The drinks were great and available all tims with great variety. It was so relaxing and the weather was also great to complement to the fun we had. I will go again. SunWing is a well organized and experienced tour operator

    “Wonderful Vacation”

    Flew from Edmonton to Manzanillo with Sunwing vacations. The Sunwing representative that takes you from the airport to the resort is hilarious so he'll have you cracking up the entire bus ride, which is about 20-25 minutes long. Once you reach the resort, you are greeted with a fruity drink. Check-in at the hotel is not at the front desk but downstairs in a private room, which makes the entire process much more efficient. Once you're checked-in, you go back upstairs and the bellboys help out all the guests with their luggages to their respective rooms. The rooms are great, spacious, and always very clean. The food is amazing at the buffet. They always provide a variety of options. If someone has a birthday, the buffet staff is so accommodating with having a piece of cake and candle ready and then serenade the person by singing "Happy Birthday" in English and also in Spanish. The a la carte restaurants are great and definitely worth a try! The bartenders around the resort are quick and make great drinks. The entire resort grounds are always clean and you can always find a spot to just relax. Sarah at the towel hut is great with explaining the different water activities. Would recommend doing the snorkelling in the morning. It's around 3 hours long but time really flies by and you get to see such great scenery along the way. We went with Alfredo and he was so entertaining and informative. The entertainment crew during the day is fabulous. They are always so interactive with the guests and encourage to participate in various activities around the pool and the beach, particularly Yair with encouraging you to play beach volleyball. The evening shows are also great and vary nightly. Overall, would highly recommend this resort if you would like to have a wonderful time!

    “So impressed in January going back in March ”

    Took my two sons (24,and 16) had an excellent time there were things for both to do also they are picky eaters and no complaints at all. Place was clean lots of room in our suite and throughout the hotel pool area was excellent everything went great! Even met the general manager a Spanish gentleman and his wife they were extremely welcoming and concerned that we were all having a good holiday. I am so impressed with my holiday in January that I decided to surprise my wife for valentine ‘s day with another holiday there on March 4th
