Despite some very nice people who worked at the resort our trip was very bad :(. We stayed at Barcelo in Dominican and it was great but Manzanillo not so much! First thing there was an obvious problem with the AC as the ceiling was open and even though we asked to have them fix or move up they did...

We stayed at the Karmina Palace in 2011, 2 weeks in March. The resort is spotless with the gardens around the pools absolutely spectacular. Food both at the alacarte's as well at the buffet was fantastic, and the service throughout the resort was wonderful. The only negative is the size of the private beach, but the amazing pools more than...

Stayed at the Barcello Feb/2013 just the girls "leave husband at home" vacation. The entire atmosphere, as you step off the airport shuttle bus, is that of awed, elegant relaxation. Everything was perfect, there is a lineup at check in, check out, but not like the one at OUR local Walmart. We did miss having the ocean surf on the...

I stayed at this hotel, first and last time for sure. Bad service, bad food, dirty rooms and old towels. Did I mentioned that the pillows were stained and smelly?. I know all inclusive means "do it you self" vacation, but seriously, this hotel is as bad as they come.

What can I say, I loved this hotel from start to finish. I didn't stay here for a holiday, but for work. As such I did not use the hotel as an all inclusive resort but as a normal hotel base, some meals in, some out with limited time to explore the facilities. What did I like, the room was...

The property was great. However the food was average. Few staff we spoke to very friendly. Didn't enjoy plastic glasses for drinks, luckily we brought our own. Nightly show very good. Found the golf course and staff there very good.

Stayed here in 2010 for 2 weeks. The hotel is very nice. Beach not huge but still nice. This was our first trip to manzanillo . The rooms are huge, bathroom amazing!!! Miramar beach is worth checking out as well as the turtle tour and the zip lining was so fun! I love this area and hope to return soon!...
