We booked Barceló Grand Faro last minute. We had no expectations as the reviews we read were mixed. Grand Faro as recently acquired by Barceló and it was quite clear that they were still trying to work out the kinks - but that's ok, that's to be expected. Our kids had a great time. Both of them spent most of... More

We really like this resort. Ocean Front room 2591 was on the 5th floor with great views. Definitely get the Club Premium upgrade, we really enjoyed that. Katherine was the best at helping us with so many questions-very knowledgeable. Jesus, Felix, Jose Leyva and Alfredo all were very helpful with freezing our fish we caught to bring home. Chef Raul...

We made our second visit to Barcelo Grand Faro in late Jan-early Feb and were thrilled that many of our favourite staff were still there 2 years later! The two specialty restaurants - Jicamas and La Gondola offer fantastic service and great food - superior to some of the high priced restaurants in San Jose! Great chefs, servers, bartenders and...

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.
