My husband and I just got back from a week at Barcelo. While sipping a pina colada on our last night we went over the pros and cons of our trip with the question would we come back to the Barcelo as well. The pros, the wonderful beach (the best we've been to and we've been to PV, NV, Mazatlan...

Although this hotel is good, there are a number of items which make it a 3 star in my book. Of the seven nights we were there, the main buffet was closed for three of them. If you had not booked one of the specialty restaurants, you had to go to the 'fiestas' which sit you at tables of 10....

We booked this hotel from word of mouth of people we knew who had been there and also used Trip Advisor alot. Since we enjoyed ourselves so much and found Trip Advisor so useful I wanted to let everyone know how the trip went. Used Apple Vacations. Was happy with that except the fact that we had the Honeymoon deal...

Just got back from the Barcelo Ixtapa. This is our second year in a row there. Overall I would say that it hasn't changed much (literally). The food is the same, the shows are the same - so if you were there last year and saw the shows - as far as we were concerned they were identical but we...

We stayed at the Barcelo in Ixtapa, Nov. 18-25, 2008 and we absolutely loved it!! The staff was friendly and helpful and more than accommodating of our attempts at speaking Spanish. Food was good, and the pool area, entertainment and drinks were great!

My family and I had a great time. The weather was perfect. I have been on a winter vacation about twenty times and this was the nicest beach I have ever been on. Not so much as a pebble to step on! Smooth sand throughout. The waves were perfect. Strong enough to have fun (boogie board, body surf) but not...

I returned last night from a week-long stay at the Barcelo Ixtapa. The resort is clean and well run. The staff are efficient and helpful (and honest… on the third day I forgot to lock the safe and my purse and other valuables were undisturbed. I should say that I tipped the maid service $2 USD, or 20 pesos per...

Great resort for families with younger children, but the music sucked (geared towards older Mexicans and piano bar fans), a better music mix and more English language evening action would help. There is no fun or night action for adults who love to party! The only way out is: Senior Frogs, where there were signs of extacy drug use visible....

We stayed 2 weeks at the Barcelo Ixtapa, leaving Dec. 13th. Overall was a very nice stay. Staff overall were very nice, but many obviously, including in the front desk, did not understand English very well at all. Some pretend to know what your asking. Biggest complaint was that I've read on a few travel sites, that the Barcelo Ixtapa...
