This is very much a family beach hotel, popular with locals, so bring a Spanish phrase book or Google Translate if you don't speak Spanish. I booked a single room and got the biggest room I have ever seen, 11 metres by 6 overall. In addition to the large bedroom with triple bed and TV, there were two bathrooms, a...

The staff is very friendly and willing to help. The all-inclusive buffet selection is boring bland food and drinks are weak. There are three pools: one kind of "T" shape at the main building and two other rectangular at roof top located across the street beach side. Evening karaoke was loud and cheesy. We stayed in a 1-bedroom suite...the interior...

A three night stay in a very nice room with a view of the beach where we could relax. We normally don't stay at an all inclusive resort and I was pleasantly surprised by the variety of great breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. It was the slow season so we almost had the place to ourselves the first night and easy...

Our visit was off-season, so some shortcomings could be expected but, apart from a nice guest room, the property was disappointing. Lunch at the pool bar was satisfactory. For an all-inclusive resort, the buffet dinner was poor with few tasteless entrees. We went to the bar for an after-dinner drink (two people were already seated in the large area) and...

Last December I organized the Christmas party for the company I work for. People were very pleased with the trip. The rooms were nice and clean (we booked all rooms). The administrative staff of the hotel did a great job through the whole event. I was very much satisfied with them. I think the actual hotel staff could improve in...

Resort in a nice location in Salinas, rooms were very nice, pool area, food was just okay to my liking. Not your typical Barcelo Resorts like in Dominican Republic which are huge complexes with the beach right behind the hotel. At the Barcelo Salinas you have to cross the street to have access to the beach. They are in the...

Everything I've read in the reviews rated as "terrible" sumarizes my experience (other than theft). Bad buffet, mediocre rooms, below average service, bad wifi, ugly beach, old furnishings, small pool, and on and on.... All of this for a highly inflated rate.

Can we give negative stars?? We went to this hotel restaurant for New Year's Day brunch. WHAT A SCAM! The food was terrible. The selection was pathetic. And the price was $30 per person???? That wasn't as good as the $1.50 almuerzo you can find in town (which is a very low bar indeed). AVOID THIS RESTAURANT COMPLETELY!

The place is perfect and near the beach. The staff and volunteers were also very friendly and helpful. The room and common area were neat and clean. This hotel is right on the beach and had everything you need including great security.. Great view of the ocean from the hotel. Would stay there again.......
