I love this place! We chose the premium upgrade and while my husband questions the additional cost, booking through Unitedvacations.com, it really is a great value. The rooms are very good and the staff for the rooms are attentive. We are currently staying on the 7th floor and we're enjoying not only the room, food and view, but the whole... More

No problems checking in. Staff does a good job. It is very clean. The rooms are spacious with new furnishings. I could hear partying at the bar until midnight. The food and margaritas were a disappointment. I actually started leaving the resort where my meals were paid for in order to go into town and pay to eat. The margaritas... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel was excellent, the staff friendly, and the food was amazing! We enjoyed snorkelling right off the beach, and saw a variety of fish such as Moorish Idol, flute fish, puffers, stingray, neon tetras. We took a boat out to the rocks ,but enjoyed snorkelling off the beach better for the variety of fish.... More

We just got back from a week at the Barcelo- we were celebrating our fifteenth wedding anniversary. We had the Club Premium package and an oceanfront Grand Master suite. The room was better than the photos. The price for the all inclusive upgrade is totally worth is- those wristbands are an all access pass. There was nothing off limits- any... More

The hotel is about 15 minutes from PV by car and 20 minutes by bus which comes about every 10 minutes (its much cheaper... More

1/11/15 - 1/20/15 We had the best time EVER at the Barceló, and made many new friends who were either vacationing or working there. It's a wonderful, relaxing place! The rooms are huge, comfortable and clean; with a big balcony and great views. The giant shower, comfortable bed, everything was great. Some furnishings may be a little dated but who... More

Our group of 11 adults just returned from a 5 day, 4 night stay at the Barceló. It was a great value and it was a perfect vacation spot for our group. --Pools: swim up bar was great. Pablo & Jerry were amazing bartenders and took great care of us. Pool bar gets busy especially in the afternoon. Volleyball pool... More

So, I read a lot of reviews on this place before we left, and was a little worried to be honest. BUT I have to say from the moment we got there, till we left, we felt very taken care of and over all very happy with our stay! At booking we did opt for the Suite Deluxe Club Premium... More

We stayed at the end of the rainy season so we got an excellent rate. The staff was outstanding. We upgraded to a Club Premium room and loved it. Only bad thing was the staff did not fully inform us at the start as to all of the perks that come with Club Premium. We were well into day 2... More
