I wanted just a place to go alone and relax... Excellent choice. The food and drinks are very good for all inclusive standards. The infinity pool is classy. You cannot swim in the ocean at this location as the current is too strong, but the beach side is so beautiful to go for a walk and sunbathing. Rooms are nice... More

My husband and I booked the Barcelo because we had such a great experience at the Barcelo Maya Palace Deluxe and the Barcelo Maya Colonial resorts. This Barcelo is a BIG step down. No one warned us either via email or on the website that this is a non swimming beach. The pictures also did not disclose that the hotel... More

It was my first time at an all inclusive resort and I am definitely going to explore the world of all inclusive. Staff: With the exception of the guy that was trying to sell excursions, everyone was so so kind and awesome. The one guy that was trying to sell excursions (located on the middle desk for the lobby) was... More

We booked a last minute getaway with west jet vacations to Cabo. The Barcelo was an excellent choice. Although we had some little issues overall it was fantastic. The people that work there and work hard to makes sure you are taken care of are the reason. If you ask they will do what they can to help. The food... More

We recently stayed at the resort from 8/14-8/21 with a group of our close friends. We stayed in an ocean front premium room. The room was standard and could use some updating. The restaurants were good quality especially enjoyed the Italian restaurant. Swim up bar service can be slow at times however drinks were made fairly well. Customer service was... More
