This hotel in the hotel zone in San Jose Del Cabo is perfect for relaxation and service. We went in August when the days are hot and the resort is not at capacity so we had lots of service and we had our pick of pools and places to eat. The rooms are gorgeous. We had a room larger than... More

My room smelled stuffy... The air conditioner didn't work very well and the full size bed was as hard a a rock. the breakfast was no up to par... The lunch near the pool wasn't very good either.. The buffet near the beach was awesome.. Food was great

Beautiful location, nice rooms and fun events. Restaurants were not the greatest but food was ok otherwise. Would definitely stay there again, had a ton of fun and a great experience. Recommended to upgrade to premium.

Every bit of written description about this property, (ie: Rooms, Food, Location, Premium Pkg inclusives), everything was exactly as described! Which was HUGE being this was our 1st trip to Cabo, our 1st All-Inclusive, & we didn't know what to expect!

We liked the hotel very much, Staff was exceptional and very friendly. Just a few suggestions--it needs more restaurant choices for "sit down" meals. They were OK, but not enough choice for an all-inclusive. The housekeeping staff needs to be trained to clean the room the same way every time. We were constantly calling for towels, etc. They honored our... More

It's a nice hotel. There was so many ups and downs that I am having a hard time giving a review. The location was great for relaxation and tranquility, it is not party central. The other guests were pleasant and respectful, only a couple of drunken jerks who came with a wedding party. Not too many kids and none were... More

Waking up in the morning to the view of the pools and the ocean cannot be beat. The room was comfortable and large and the deck was great. Food was good, you will always find something that you like and the drinks were good. Nice place to stay.

I really like the Barcelo chain, and I stay in them where ever they are available in my travels. I just went back to Los Cabos, and was confused and disappointed.
