This was my second time in Cabo and decided to stay in Barcelo since I stayed there the first time and was awesome. Unfortunately, they moved and now is grand faro. Cons: -It took us 4 hours to get our room -The desk person named Luis told us that restaurants were for adults only,I had my little niece so we... More

the staff treated us extremely well and the daily shows are definitely worth watching where time allows. BUT when we first arrived our room was very clean, but as our week went on the cleaning lady started not cleaning properly; such as towels not replaced, no fresh coffee, the beds not changed and only hap hazardly thrown together. Also, found... More

We booked this trip through Expedia after exhaustive research of resorts in the area and were not disappointed. We splurged and got the VIP Premium package which came with a special concierge, private lounge, top shelf spirits and wonderful welcome package in the rooms. When we arrived, Jesus Jimenez was there to greet us with a smile and we felt... More

My work brought me here 3 times in the month of July. Hotel is attractive. Service, on the whole, pretty terrible. Think SLOW. Slow check-in. Slow check-out. Slow internet. Slow restaurant and bar service (The one exception was Alejandro Andrade, one of the wait staff. He was phenomenal!) Nice location. Just wish it was better managed.

Great beach access and one large pool that was not overly populated with kids. It really helped it was in the quieter city of San Jose del Cabo and not Cabo San Lucas. It is much easier to get out and explore. Our bartender for 3 different days was Efrain Guevara and he is one of the best there. He... More

This was my first time visiting Cabo but my 5th time in Mexico. I had stayed at large resorts in Cancun, Cozumel, Puerto Vallarta, etc. and none of them compare to the service we received at the Barcelo Grand Faro in Los Cabos. The price we paid was incomparable to the excellence in service we were provided. Every single staff... More

Pools were awesome, but very slow service. I would say poorly managed. Not enough hotel staff. Had to wait to get waited on (drinks-water, soda, other beverages, etc.) every place we went (swim up bar, restaurant, buffet). Waiters did not come check to see if we needed refills. We started ordering two drinks at a time. Don't think we would... More

The hotel was pretty simple and basic, but the staff was friendly and the food was decent. We never tried the restaurants that required a reservation, but heard good things. The dinner buffet had a good variety, and the snack bar was one of the better ones experienced at an all inclusive. The breakfast buffet had okay food, but they... More

My friend and I are getting ready to leave after 6 days at Barcelo. The thing that impressed me most at this hotel was the staff. Everyone was very friendly and accommodating. Especially Jose at the pool and one of the managers, Luis. They always made sure we had what we needed. The only downside of this hotel are the... More
