Hotel needs updating, restaurants are very good but you can only use them a total of 4 times. Then you would go to buffets, which were horrible. Food that should have been hot was cold, not a lot of variety. Adult pool had biting bugs at shallow end and dirty. Children were in adult pool a lot and no one... More

The staff were great. All the restaurants were very enjoyable. The room was comfortable and we looked over the pools and to the water. The buffet had outdoor tables. This made even the buffet meals a little special. There were only 2 things that I would like to see improved. Perhaps they could select a sightly higher quality house wine.... More

My husband and I upgraded to Club Premium. The room was very small and had only two double beds. We were supposed to have turn down service every night, but in 7 days, it happened twice. The person working the club premium desk was less than helpful and certainly didn't seem to enjoy his job. We were not impressed with... More

Just had a week there and did enjoy the stay but I would not rate it a 5 star hotel. All the staff were fantastic, friendly and helpful. Pool area, communal area and rooms were clean and well maintained by very hard working staff. The a la carte dining options were disappointing apart from the Spanish which was excellent. I... More

This was our 3rd stay (2 weeks February 17-March 3/15) at the Barcelo Huatulco and we upgraded to the Club Premium and booked in advance of our trip. We received a Club Premium room (even numbered) and received a non-renovated room. View from the room was great but felt cheated with a old room. Others that checked in at the... More

Spent a week here (Mar 17-24, 2015) This is our 9th All Inc. in past 12 yrs. This resort is beautifully laid out, smaller in size. Heard all the rooms are ocean view, so very nice. My only complaints were it was too hot (30-35) and humid. Also from Edmonton, Alberta via Winnipeg it took 8.5 hrs. to fly. Coming... More

Having heard that the odd numbered rooms had been renovated, we requested one and got it. No major issues with the room itself, the AC was preset and couldn't be changed, but it worked. The room was large , lots of counter space in the new bathroom and a lovely ocean view from our private balcony. Having been to 2... More

Arrival at the hotel and was struck by how organized they were. They got everyone checked in and off to their rooms in no time. The rooms are clean, and comfortable. The bed is very comfortable, with soft bedding. A wonderful sleep, even after getting a sunburn, having soft sheets helped. The room is a bit dated, but they are... More

We always stay in Barcelo. The first time I visited Huatulco was in the 1970s and it was just a little fishing village - you could rent a hammock on the beach - It has changed to a resort destination, with Barcelo one of our favorites. Rooms, food, drinks and service is great. There are usually more Mexican tourists, that... More
