There were rumors that when Hurricane Odile hit the staff of certain hotels left and the patrons were left on their own. No such thing at Barcelo they stayed and kept the customers safe in some circumstances my girlfriend told me that they brought their families to the hotel so that they could protect them and take care of their...

We recently got back from an amazing and relaxing 4 day trip and were fortunate enough to leave the Saturday before hurricane Odile hit Cabo. We had amazing weather, had a lot of fun hanging out at the resort, playing volleyball, waterpolo, bingo and just relaxing. The staff all around was attentive and friendly, the concierge helped us set up... More

Our recent family vacation (we were 12 adults and 6 children) to the Barceló Grand Faro Los Cabos resort was interrupted by Hurricane Odile just over 24 hours after our arrival. The efforts of all staff at the resort to keep us safe, fed and as comfortable as possible were amazing! Cleanup started immediately, we had limited power and running... More

We came to the Barcelo on Sunday night, before Hurricane Odile, looking for a place to stay. The staff was warm and accommodating. The grounds and hotel were lovely. Most important- they were prepared to take care of us after the storm. They had supplies. They opened the bar on Tuesday after the storm, and served drinks. The food was... More

We just got back from a perfect, relaxing vacation at the Barcelo Grand Faro (thanking God we left Saturday 9-13 as hurricane Odile hit Sunday). Hope the damage is not too great and that all the staff and guests are safe. We (3 50 year olds & 22 year old nephew) make a trip to Mexico almost every year (usually... More

I must start by saying the hotel is lovely for the price. Food was good, rooms were clean. Pool needs a little more attention...garbage in the brook under the bridge and crude floating in the "infinity pool" - which was not an infinity pool because there was never enough water in it. But I wanted to warn you about the... More

So the wife and I had stayed in the Hyatt earlier and moved halfway through our 2 week break to the Barcelo. Initial thoughts were it looked clean and friendly with a stunning view. When we checked in, we decided to go with Premium service, which is definitely worth it and I'll explain later. I'll start with the negative bits... More

We traveled from August 14th to 24th, 2014. This was our 4th trip to Cabo and first to the new Barcelo, previously Hola Grand Faro. We booked two regular rooms and had requested adjoined rooms. When we arrived we were on different floors and we told them our daughters are in 2nd room so not acceptable. They were accomodating and... More

Sept. 6-13,2014. Just missed the hurricanes at either end of this week and spent a much needed quiet time in virtually every part of the complex. Very hot, clean, fabulous food with exquisite detail to presentation and service at every turn. Lots of management and caring staff from check-in (Maria) to check-out.

I have stayed at Barcelo resorts in other areas of Mexico and in Europe, this one pretty much matched my experiences at the other resorts. It's a clean, well-decorated and well-maintained property without a lot of frills. The food is decent and the drinks are what you would expect at an all-inclusive. It's not really safe to go swimming at... More
