I spent 5 nights here last week overall, it's an excellent resort. It is huge and took a while just to figure much of it out. The food options were plentiful and drinks were great at well. The resort has about everything you could want. If I could recommend anything, it would be to have free wifi. Having to spend...

We enjoyed every minute of our stay at Barcelo. The employees couldn't do enough for us and were always checking in or asking if we needed anything else. We had the premium level with a suite that overlooked the kids pool in the Tropical which was right in the middle of all the resorts so an easy walk in either...

The grounds and hotel are beautiful! The buffet had a great selection including sushi and great Mexican cuisine. Vanessa Jimenez and Christie Cruz are the best! So friendly and helpful! The shows in the theatre are entertaining and the singers and dancers are very talented.

As a guest of any of the lower 4 resort areas, you have access to the bars, grills and pools of any of them. The Palace bars and eateries are for Palace guests only. The upper end of the beach has a low wall about 2 feet high with many, many access points to the beach, and there are body and foot showers at each opening. That wall and the concrete pathway parallel the beach so that you can walk the entire resort length either in the sand or on the walkway. Just on the other side of the walkway you will find the 4 beach-side grills (one per resort area) and the bars. No matter where you choose to stay on the beach or at the pools, there are grills, bars, and bathrooms nearby. We found the setup to be very nice, but did bring the Bubba style insulated mugs to assure us of larger and cooler drinks.

You can pretty much get any mixed drink, cocktail, tropical drink, liquor, beer and wine at all the Barcelo restaurants, pool side bars and main dinning areas. Having said that, the Spanish house wine that comes by the glass is 'swill' and not drinkable.

Hi! If you stay at The Palace you have access to all eateries in the resort! If you stay in one of the other four hotels, they are all reciprocal, but you can't eat or drink at The Palace. So we stayed at The Colonial & walked down to The Palace on our first day. We stopped to get a drink at one of The Palace pool bars and we're told we could not because we were wearing the wrong colored bracelet. I spoke with a manager who explained that it's more expensive to stay at The Palace, which is why people staying at the other four can't go to their buffets or get drinks there. That was no problem because the other four places had great selections of food!
