Thanks to past reviews for this resort we decided to go to Barcelo Karmina for Christmas. I was a little nervous to go to this resort because not many people were familiar with Mananillo and couldn't tell me much. I am soooo glad that we went! I went with my husband, brother and my parents ( both in their 60's)....

We went to the Barcelo in February and just never got around to reviewing. This is a solid 4 to 4.5 star resort. Check in was a breeze and we were taken to a beautiful ocean view room as requested. The room was the nicest we have ever had anywhere. Beautiful and large! It was more like a suite really....

Was a great experience, I was there for a training, but I could enjoy it. The service must be improve, and the beach is not cute, but it has privacy. The best are the rooms very confortables, larges, and clean. The food in general good variety and excellent taste. Many pools to swimming, many bars to drink, many things to...

Had a wonderful time at this hotel. Very clean. We went to 2 out of the 3 al-a-carte restaurants. Twice to the Italian, which was fabulous! The Spinach Soup was amazing! Once to the Japanese Restaurant, which was also fabulous. The Mexican restaurant was either closed or we could not get in. Be sure to book your alacartes the morning...

Thanks to Tripadvisor, my wife and I spent an incredible 7 days at the Barcelo in Manzanillo. Now to be clear, Manzanillo is really not a tourist "hot spot" to be sure with very little to do but relax and un-wind. This is where the Karmina hits the mark.7 days of lying around one of their immaculately clean pools, with...

I have been going to this resort for several years. Five years ago I would have said that it was definitely 5 star overall. But now it seems to be suffering from sub-standard maintenance and guest inconvenience due to cost-cutting. There seem to be many more rules around the restaurants. The "gourmet" a la carte restaurants, while not particularly good,...

I have spent a lot of time in Cuba at all-inclusives, The pressure to tip was constant. Zero pressure at Karmina Palace. Makes for a much more relaxing time and when you do tip for unusually good service, it is because you want to. And the service was excellent all the time without tips. They took a chance on the...

The hotel was excellent. The food was great and good variety. The only negative for a 5 star was that it was not 24 hour all inclusive. The mini bars were well stocked daily. The rooms had a good view of the ocean. Great hotel in Manazanillo.
