We got back last night from the Barcelo. Over all my wife and I had a good time. There one or two things that bothered me but overall our time there was good. The resort appears to be fully recovered from the hurricane a few months back. Ok so about beer. How does a resort run out of beer so... More

We originally booked another hotel for our Babymoon this past December but it turned out to be a dump. We randomly found the Barcelo and were so lucky we did. The hotel is beautifully kept with gorgeous views of the ocean. The rooms are clean and II believe all have an ocean view. The restaurant is in a prime location... More

Beautiful setting, views, and ease of access to pools and recreation areas. Rooms are comfortable, although not luxurious by any standard. Breakfast is sensational - something for every taste or desired nutrition. Wait staff at the breakfast area are exceptional in their attentiveness and quick response to any seating need. Other restaurants were not quite as expected. Food was just... More

This was our first trip to Cabo, third to a Barcelo resort, and first with a child. One benefit of staying at a Barcelo is that they all seem to be fairly similar which makes staying at one both familiar and comforting. You would never know that the resort just recovered from Hurricane Odile if you never set foot off... More

If only they try a little harder, this resort has potentials...but it is sad, they don't have what it takes to make it a 5 star. This resort services are not consistent. It can go from somewhat good to worse in minutes. One thing we noticed is how hard most of the employees work. First impression is very important. We... More

We have never tasted food this bad anywhere in Mexico and we have been there no less than 80 times. The Mexican Fiesta on Friday night was particularly bad. Everything, including tortilla soup, was either cold or dried out. The Mexican restaurant gave my wife salmon that was hardly even cooked. I had a flank steak that was burned to... More

Just returned from a relaxing stay at the Barcelo Grand Faro. Wary about the hotel prior to our trip after reading some TA reviews. The hotel is a leisurely 30 minute walk to the charming town of San Jose del Cabo. (Note location in the TA address for the hotel, not in Cabo San Lucas.) Mega store and Starbucks 10... More

I don't have a complaint about our vacation. Everything was perfect and the staff wonderful. Shout out to the fire coffee man! I can't remember his name now, but he was great. The fire pit, fire coffee and his company was the best part of our trip!

The first thing you should know is that Barcelo Grand Faro is in San Jose del Cabo, 30 minutes from Los Cabos. I heard some comments about people didn't know that once they arrived. Nevertheless is a nice all inclusive hotel, right next to the beach with most of its rooms with a nice view to the sea. Also nice... More

Our family of ten (grandparents, children, grandchildren ages 3 to 11), spent a week over Christmas at Grand Faro. It was a perfect Christmas holiday. Everyone enjoyed themselves. The food was good, the service was good and the staff was friendly and accommodating. A perfect hassle free Christmas.
