Pools were awesome, but very slow service. I would say poorly managed. Not enough hotel staff. Had to wait to get waited on (drinks-water, soda, other beverages, etc.) every place we went (swim up bar, restaurant, buffet). Waiters did not come check to see if we needed refills. We started ordering two drinks at a time. Don't think we would...

The hotel was pretty simple and basic, but the staff was friendly and the food was decent. We never tried the restaurants that required a reservation, but heard good things. The dinner buffet had a good variety, and the snack bar was one of the better ones experienced at an all inclusive. The breakfast buffet had okay food, but they...

My friend and I are getting ready to leave after 6 days at Barcelo. The thing that impressed me most at this hotel was the staff. Everyone was very friendly and accommodating. Especially Jose at the pool and one of the managers, Luis. They always made sure we had what we needed. The only downside of this hotel are the...

Resort is beautiful, the grounds are very nice and clean, same as the rooms. The staff is very friendly and the food was good. The Mexican restaurant is amazing!!

I recently stayed at this resort for 5 nights. My girlfriend and I traveled there to attend my friends wedding.

The service overall was great. The room was comfortable. I loved the 4 pillows on the bed. I liked that there are several restaurants on the property but I would have liked to have more seafood (shrimp, crablegs and lobster) options. My only complaint is they ran out of wash cloths.

“Rooms that face the pool are still considered "Ocean view rooms" but other wise you are facing the hotel next door or a wall.”
