Let me start by saying that I worried about where we were going to stay. I researched, researched, and then researched some more. I checked reviews on every website out there. Now, there are positivie and negative reviews on EVERY resort out there. After all my hard work, I decided on Barcelo Costa Cancun. We just got back, and we...

I have read some of these trip reports and wonder if the poeple who write them have EVER travelled in their lives. We stayed in Barcello Furtevetura several weeks ago and enjoyed it. This hotel lacks any class whatsoever , its cheap and cheerful and clean. The food is a smash and grab buffet ... there isnt a lot worth...

We booked our trip with Travel Only, through Sean and Leanna MackayQuinn. We were very pleased from check in to check out, we were treated very well by all. The waitresses; Carmen and Sandra tirelessly and quickly served us all at the pool always smiling. The bartenders very fast and friendly, the cleaning staff wonderful. Our room was always spotless,...

We are a young couple and were headed on our first vacation together. We read some somewhat negative reviews before leaving but shrugged them off as reviews by malcontents. We assumed the negative reviews were written by people who wouldn't have been happy anywhere. However, after going into our vacation with high hopes and open minds we are very dissapointed....

My partner and I managed to get a last minute absolute bargain of a holiday to Barcelo Costa and we both really enjoyed ourselves although we both agreed that we wouldn't have wanted to have paid any more. The food at the Hotel was excellent and it was lovely to be able to choose so many places to eat. It...

Out of the 12 rooms we booked, almost 50% of them had no functioning AC. Several rooms had a sewer smell as you entered. Front desk not very helpful, slow service at all eating places, (only has 4), food only so-so. Nice beach, but small. Bartenders seemed to only grudgingly get your drinks. Cocktail servers, however, were very good. We...

If your looking to stay at a 5 star resort, then stay at a 5 star resort. Barcelo Costa is a wonderful place and you get great service and good food for the value. Don't pay attention to the bad reviews, nothing is perfect, and if you look for things to be wrong then you'll naturally find them. My husband...

Would probably not stay here again. The food was poor to average. We were disappointed with the view because we wanted to experience the turquoise waters that Cancun is so famous for. Because of the location of this resort, on the bay, the water was not what we expected. The resort was the perfect size for our large group of...
