We visited Barcelo Grand Faro in July 2014. The property was beautiful and the room were very nice and air conditioned. I cannot say enough about the service. Everyone was very nice and ready to serve us. The food was great! We ate at the Mexican Restaurant one evening, but the rest of the time we dined in the buffett... More

This was our first time in Cabo and our first time at an all-inclusive resort. For the money, I thought it was a great deal. We did take the upgrade for the club premium and we both felt that it was worth it. For around $50 extra dollars a night you get a better room (tubs are a must for... More

We booked an oceanfront room but their interpretation of oceanfront is not the same as ours. We were expecting to be in a room with the beach right in front of our room but we got a room with the pool in front of our room and then the ocean is somewhat in view beyond the pool. The room was... More

This was our first time on the Pacific side of Mexico and we were pretty excited to see what it was like. The property and the room itself was very nice. The people were friendly upon arrival and they brought us to the "preferred status" lounge for check in. Everything seemed great at first. When we got down to the... More

We had a 74 person wedding on the beach at this hotel July 2014. Everything was perfect and we would recommend it highly. The wedding planner Cynthia is the best and the whole event ran without any problems. My daughter got her dream wedding and we gave a hassle-free and reasonably priced three day party. Thank you Barcelo for your... More

We stayed for 5 nights/6 days for our honeymoon in early July. We were immediately blown away by the beautiful grounds and the view from our room! We paid to upgrade to VIP status and it was well worth it. The VIP lounge is airconditioned and has snacks and a tv and premium drinks available all day long and computer/printer... More

Barcelo Grand Faro was mediocre, nothing terribly wrong, nothing terribly outstanding. We got a great deal on the internet and went. Nothing extravagent, but then again, I didn't expect that due to the price. It is a short drive from the airport, the food at the restaurants was good, actually the buffet was pretty good also. The pool service was... More

We stayed here from July 9-16 2014. Everyone was great. The food was good. The specialty restaurants were great. We really enjoyed our stay there. We were on the first floor. It was real easy to get everywhere from there. The room was nice & the a/c worked great.

Upon arrival, it was less than what I expected as we have stayed at the Barcelo here a couple times when it is what is known now as the Hyatt. Then it was a 4.5 star now a 3 or less. Check in was not great. We arrived at noon and didn't get our room until 3:30 when check in... More

As you may know, Mina and I have been to a lot of places, found a lot of gems, and stepped on the odd "turd", but this place was heaven.
