Good resort , the people who work there are awesome, friendly, and helpful . I would say 95% of the people that were staying at this resort when we were there from April 11th to the 22nd ,2015 were Mexican , which was good they are very friendly people just like us Canadians . We aren't picky people or real... More

This was our 5th trip to Ixtapa, extremely disappointed with the hotel (it's definitely showing its age), the services were bad to terrible (except for Adolpho, night manager, and Johsua, server - thank you for making us feel so welcome.) Two different employees tried to rip us off with currency changes, evening cleaning staff only made up our bed twice... More

We had our 2nd visit to the Barceló in Ixtapa in January of 2015. We travelled as 2 couples (my husband and myself and my parents). We intentionally chose the Barceló because of its location. It truly has a perfect location. But that was where it ended for me. Again, we stayed before so I was really disappointed when we... More

I would rate this hotel a 3.5/5. It had great potential, but during holy week when we went it was beyond packed! The service was lacking and there were way too many people so it took forever to do anything. There were also a LOT of children, and all activities and shows were in Spanish, this may not be the...

I will not go back to The Ixtapa barcelo resort. I found the room really poor (and we had a premium room!) the service and the food average. The biggest problem was finding a chair to rest at the pool. By 6.30 am every seat was taken already. Beside that I hate the whole card/towel thing. It's really annoying. Kudos... More

The beach is fabulous its got that nice golden grainy texture of sand that's deep, not like some caribbean Islands where the ground feels only minimally covered (ground hard and white) the hotel is fairly large beach front and mostly native. We had an ocean front room and a spectacular view of sunsets, but the room 's bathroom needs a... More

We just got back home after 3 wonderful weeks at the Barcelo Hotel in Ixtapa Mexico. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome by Alejandra and Citilla on the front desk who made our check-in (and check-out) a smooth operation. Our room (436) was clean and maintained daily, I cannot say enough about the cleaning staff... More

Great weather, very good food, very friendly staff, terrific sunsets. On the other hand : Often short on staff.. even in their best restaurant Don Quixote. Chair reservations start very early so if you like a certain space you better get up and get out with your towels... (around 5 am) I am on holiday so i dont. Very Very... More

Spent the last 2 weeks at Barceló in Ixtapa. The food was the best for any all-inclusive I have stayed at. Lots of seafood and fish every night. Staff were very friendly and helpful. They realize if the visitors don't come, they don't have a job. The pool bar staff are overworked and really should have additional staff or there... More
