My group of friends and I (total of 13 of us) recently stayed here and everything was amazing! The rooms were spacious(we were in a suite), clean, and we had the most beautiful view of the ocean. All of the employees were super nice and helpful. Our drinks were never empty while lounging at the pool! :) pool was beautiful,... More

The resort was small but beautiful, especially set at the foot of the mountains overlooking the water. Big, clean rooms; nice pool, good food. the spanish place was definitely the best. the pool was nice too. Be sure to walk to the left of the resort by the ruins of the Night of the Iguana. Also worth the 15 minute... More

I along with my wife concluded our 6th consecutive winter vacation this year. We always go in February. 2014 was another fantastic vacation. Mr. Pacheco and Rosalba Garcia always make our visit special. The entire staff is awesome. Humberto, Jesus, Lao and many others treat you like family. They always say "welcome home" when we first arrive. The hotel is... More

Be sure to go see Marco in the restaurants that require reservations and Edrey Torres in any of the restaurants. When you go out to the beach make sure you ask for Adrian, he is the only one I would ask for if you need fishing, massages, food, etc. He is the best!!

The resort was nice & kept very clean. The room was a suite which was nice but the air conditioning didn't work well. There was loud music by the pool all day long which can be annoying. The Restaurant staff was very friendly with great service. The maid service was good also. The front desk staff was a hit &... More

It was our anniversary and the staff went above and beyond. Ana and Adelina did a fabulous job of making sure we had a blast. We've stayed at a few Barcelos, and this was by far the smallest. Still, it had something for everyone. The music by the swim up bar was a little too loud, making it hard to... More

I really loved everything about this resort, except the food. Plus you can't order food from the pool. I really enjoyed the fishing village next to it. Go out on the beach and for Romero to take you out snorkeling (his boat is the only blue one.) He will also take you down town and a tour via boat ride.... More

Nice secure location. Private beach for hotel guests only. Costs $30 and 40 minutes to get to the town but it is worth it. Great staff and service. I would not recoment the premium upgrade unless you need the wifi.

I really enjoyed the service and food of the Capri Restaraunt. I also enjoyed the wine of the manager lindsay recommended to me. It was a very great experience and will definitely go there again. Big smiles and great service, only good things to say. Thanks!

We recently stayed 7 days/night at the Barceló. Once again we were very pleased with the service we received at the hotel. In my opinion, the hotel does great job accommodating both adults and children. The restaurants (especially the Capri) are excellent and all of the staff were very friendly and helpful. After dinner, try catching an evening show for... More
