    “Recent trip with a friend.”

    There is not much beach here but a short distance to the South offers a long beach and to the north, a short beach, both can be accessed easily. I would love to go back and I am sure that I can be confident that my recommendation would be appreciated by everyone. Food was good at all restaurants.

Regarding our beach, we would like to tell you that although ours is not the most suitable for walking because of its small size, we have access to the beach which is located right on the side of the Maya Theater where you can walk and exercise.

    “Barcelo Karmina is well worth the visit.”

    The rooms are very well appointed, spacious and cleaned to perfection daily. The food at the buffets have a fantastic variety of food and was amazing. I found myself going back again and again for just one more bite. The pools were cleaned constantly and the wait staff in the pool area were there consistently to attend to your drink needs. If there is a downside there beach is a rather small area but the pool areas definitely made up for it. Being on the Pacific side the water and beaches are a little more rugged. The hotel is a ten minute walk to town where there is everything you need from Walmart to every fast food place you can think of. The food carts and restaurants are amazing in town as well. The staff is amazing here. From the maids to the bartenders to the waiters they all speak good English and are there for your every need. If you like to be spoiled this is the place for you.

    “Would go back again for sure!”

    The resort is excellent! Reviews before mentioned food be warned but we found it great and better than past resorts we had stayed at! The resort is not ginormous so you know the food is coming from one kitchen not being passed around the resort! We wouldnt eat anything we wouldnt eat at home! The pools are great made us miss our kids but also made us look into other Barcelo's on the Caribbean side to take them to for we liked the activities they had for them. Manzanillo is a nice escape from the touristy usual's, you are not getting harassed when you walk down the street. It was nice! The beach is nice, small but we liked that and the cove protected you from big waves. When we first arrived we found out our room had two beds from the bell boy who recommended we go ask the front desk for a change. We waited in a long slow moving line unfortunately, it was a busy weekend with easter being celebrated down there. Fortunately after some talking and waiting we were able to get a room with one bed. It felt like an upgrade for sure! Our old room we found out faced the parking lot and now we faced the pools with a huge balcony! Bed is a little hard but overall great experience!

    “The Best Room Ever”

    This was our first trip to Manzanillo. Probably our last but that would have nothing to do with the resort as the resort was one of the very best. Barcelo and Sunwing were offering the resort at a very good price for the week we went so over 1/2 the plane ended up at the same resort. Barcelo handled the busy sign in superbly. One of the smoothest checkins ever! They actually had your bracelets,room cards,towel cards ready at a table at the airport! They had even taken the opportunity to prebook you into the three alacartes. You could change them if you wanted to,but you didn't need to stand in a reservation line in the lobby wasting your moments in the sun. The room was beyond beautiful.We didn't pay the extra costs to get a room facing the ocean and honestly as we had a room on the sixth floor our view of the countryside and city off to the side was so beautiful the extra cost would have been wasteful. The room consisted of a living room with tv couch table and fridge. The fridge was not only stocked regularly with pop, beer and water but with packages of chips ! The bathroom was probably bigger than 100 sq feet with two sinks and enormous bathtub and a spacious shower. The bedroom was two queen beds with good bedding, good pillows and firm but not hard mattresses. A large cabinet housed two sides of closets, his and hers! Another TV. One thing to note was that if you paid for WIFI it worked in the bedroom and bathroom, and most of the resort but not the living room. As mentioned earlier the room reservation included three alacartes. Mexican, Japanese and Italian. The Mexican alacarte was in the best location and was by far the best food. We all thought everything was fantastic. The Japanese was good but slow service. The Italian was at most okay. If going to the Mexican twice is possible do that! During lunch you have an option to go to the non buffet luncheon spot and order off a menu, most of these are quite tasty also. Try at least once. Beach. Small but adequate for most of the time we were there. Our time there overlapped the beginning of the holy week in mexico and it got way too busy at the resort – if this never happened and if the shows were more interesting I would have given the resort another star. It is probably not a possibility but the beach would be better if they were able to remove(blast) away some of the rocks in the alcove to make more swimming area. The dancing and singing done at the shows were done with some degree of flair, but to be honest my complaint is a bit stupid, I wish they sang at least occasionally in English. They had a Disney show and I was looking forward to it, believing, at last, English, nope, even the background images from the Disney movies were in Spanish. I give good grades to the Buffet. Reasonable temperature was maintained on the food, dishes were kept replenished, lots of vegetables that weren’t overcooked. I thought the desert section was smallish, and the grill section was limited, but the grill wasn’t that necessary considering the buffet selections were ample. Manzanillo as a location is limited. The Mexican vibe, I felt, was low. The excursions didn’t seem interesting. The shopping was great if you wanted cheap clothes and shoes, but very limited if you wanted Mexican souvenirs. The airport was a total joke. So in my first paragraph I said I probably wouldn’t go back to Manzanillo it is these reasons not the resort. The resort was beautiful and I enjoyed my stay.
