Booked a premium room with ocean view. Was given a pool view and the receptionist said that you can see the ocean from a distant. Extremely poor service. No one picks up the phone for room service. You have to make a reservation for few a restaurants in the resort. Despite of making one, you have to wait a long... More

You may see from my title that my main complaint about this hotel is that it is too far away from Cabo San Lucas! If you haven't been to Cabo before you will immediately recognize that Cabo San Jose is separated from all the touristy and fun things to do there by a $40-$50 cab ride plus tip to Cabo... More

I just got back from a fabulous 7 day vacation at this resort. I have just one complaint. The fridge in the room was never cold. Oh well, they had an ice machine right down the hall.

My husband and I traveled to this resort last week for a family wedding. I stayed at an all-inclusive before which I loved and would return to, but it was way more expensive. Since this resort was so cheap, I went into it with much lower expectations. Even so, I wasn’t that impressed with the resort and wouldn’t return. I... More

We used to stay at the original Barceló which is now a Hyatt. This hotel is a little smaller and less options for restaurants but still delivers the same excellent service, great food and relaxing atmosphere. Great value considering how cheap it is, but doesn't have any cheap feel. If you are looking for a cheap getaway without staying in... More

I was a little skeptical about this resort after buying a groupon and reading some of the bad reviews on here. Also because it was kind of a hassle trying to book the room and our requested accomodations with the resort directly. But as i had figured, the people mostly complaining were either a one off situation, or just snooty,... More

I've been over this hotel a good few times in the past and I considered it an average hotel, food was okay, the view was rather nice, I cannot say anything about the pools and activities around it since I don't exactly enjoy to skin too much, but if there's something I can critique are the drinks, they're bland and...
