We traveled Dec 2 -9 2014. I agree with many of the previous reviews. The beach and poolside experience is 4.5 star. If you don't go Barcelo Club upgrade you will end up with a 3 star room and 2 star tired, chipped in bad need of renovation bathroom ...but.... what do you want for $957 a week pp and... More

This hotel is in a great place with the ocean just out front. The waves are fairly mild so swimming in the ocean is safe and fun. There are lots of activities like catamarans, snorkeling, kayaks, and body boarding. The hotel was great for kids and teens activities. The entertainment (sports) group at the hotel was very good and always... More

It sounds like a renovated room is important. How much does it cost to upgrade from a Superior Room to a Deluxe Room. I will be there in two days. There have been many comments about the unrenovated rooms being rather old, worn, and unpleasant and that it's important to get a newly renovated room.

I wish there was a star in between average and very good because I would like to rate this hotel good. My encounters with the front desk make me want to rate this hotel a 1 star but the rest of the staff were really great. I had emailed 2 weeks prior asking that we get a renovated room, upon... More

Have stayed at other Barcelos but didn't care for this one. Room smelled musty, and next door they had a flood, hence the smell. Staff seemed to know about it but didn't seem to care. You could only use the ala carte restaurants 3 times for the week. The seafood restaurant had a very good clam chowder soup, the Spanish... More
