We were looking to have a quiet relaxing short vacation in the Los Cabos area. The Barceló supplied the bill very well. One factor to keep in mind was that the hotel was half full, given the recent hurricane and its aftermath. So it was quiet. We don't know what it would be like if closer to full. In any... More

Enjoyed my stay. Food was good. The room was great. The staff was excellent. Its a quiet hotel overall, didn't see to much crazy stuff around the pools. Theres a starbucks near the Mega that has free wifi with a purchase.

The hotel is very nice, the staff very friendly. I was worried that after the hurracane I would find the place in a bad shape but they really did a great job restoring it and now its even better than before :)

I have waited a week to complete this review to see if my feelings regarding our experience would temper a bit....NOT. Fully realizing that this area suffered greatly from the hurricane in September, it would have been prudent to advise people booking this resort that there would be problems. The hotel is in need of major renos and the rooms... More

There was some minor glitches with new staff. We are overall pleased with our visit and are returning in January. The area in general is in recovery but is operational and functional with noticeable changes for the better daily. We have been here in February 2014 so have a real first hand comparison. Merchants are accommodative and pleasant we walked... More

Came here with my mother and twin daughters, we were treated like royalty. Would love to come back and visit again. Cabo Adventures swimming with the whale sharks was amazing. Not to mention the sunset cruise we went on and swimming with the dolphins. Thank You Christian for booking our adventures :). See you again soon.

Last spring, I saw a Groupon for a deal for an all inclusive in Cabo. My husband was away on deployment and I had been renting our spare room for $800/month. The Groupon was for $800 for a 5 night stay- perfect! One month renting the room paid for the vacation minus airfare! It was to be our post deployment... More

We had the pleasure of being at the Barcelo GF post-hurricane Odile when it was barely half full. This made for a terrific experience -- no line-ups for food, no hassle getting chairs, and only a few idiots who drink too much and become obnoxious ( a problem at most all-inclusives). Our check-in experience was not good in that we... More
