A group of friends stayed at the hotel for a week. We had the Premium club upgrade and enjoyed the whole week. The food was very good. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The lobby bar typically opened at 9am, however, at the request by several Canadians they opened the lobby early and turned the TV on so that... More

The "Old" Barcelo in Los Cabos is now the Hyatt Ziva, whereas the Hotel Barcelo moved to the building of the former "Gran Faro". A significant downgrade. Pool, Drinks, Food, Restaurants - all significantly worse. Stay away - unless you look for a cheap 3 star hotel.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Barceló Grand Faro Los Cabos in early April 2014. The resort is breathtaking, the ocean views are spectacular, and the customer service was unbelievably wonderful! We only stayed for 4 days but wish we had stayed AT LEAST a week. All of the Barceló staff is friendly, welcoming, and helpful (from the gardeners, to... More

This hotel was ok. It had a few things going for them but several issues made it less enjoyable. The service for the most part was really good. The employees were very friendly, always greeting you no matter what. The room was pretty much a standard hotel room, but they were clean, which is always a plus. :) Although it... More

We just finished an eight night stay at this hotel. This is a very nice hotel, but just does not have the service that I would expect. My expectations are not really even that high. During check in, we opted to upgrade our room for a higher level of service and amenities. For that upgrade, we were supposed to get... More

We visited the Barcelo from April 6-13. The hotel was wonderful and exceeded our expectations. The staff was very accommodating and went above and beyond to make our stay memorable. One of my favorite staff members was young Carlos who worked the dinner buffet service, he was attentive, kind, and extremely hard working. We also enjoyed chatting with Jose one... More

Upon arrival, the check in line took over an hour, with only two people working and a line out the door. We paid for an ocean view with a request to have a party of 8 people near one another. What we got was a wall with ocean sounds and a room on every floor in every wing. Seriously, the... More

Vice nice, clean property, good beach-you can't really swim there but you can wade into the water. Is 30 mins out of Cabo so be prepared to pay about $70-80 round trip to go into town. At times the bar staff at & around the pool were not very attentive. Wave dollar bills around for better service. Beds were very... More

Check in is very, very slow, only two people with other seeing the line but not wanting to help with check in. Nice hotel, great breakfast food and service for an all-inclusive, but dinner got very boring. In the part of town to just relax, for fun more activities need to get down to Cabo which is 30 minutes away.... More

Very nice hotel. Really good food and service for an all-inclusive. Great pool-side activities but not over-bearing. Traveled with my husband and two teen-age daughters - we all had fun, made vacation friends and enjoyed the nice location - good beach and easy walk to town (if you like to walk). We definitely want to go again!
