A great hotel, lovely food and friendly staff. There was lots of entertainment, including shows, games and great prizes. Great facilties such as the pools and jacuzzi. The rooms were perfect and we had a great sea view. I would definitely return.

Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo are amazing. Gorgeous beaches and the weather is always about 87 degrees. Every bit as wonderful as it looked in Shawshank Redemption! The Barcelo is a nice hotel with ivy growing up the interior walls and nicely appointed, cool rooms. But there were a few problems...I will start small. This is not an inexpensive place to stay...

Beautiful location and scenery. The resort as a whole was very beautiful and the staff were very accommodating. We loved just being able to chill in the kiddie pool if we wanted to, then walk over to the beach and get refreshed in the ocean. Loved that shopping and other eateries were in walking distance. We stayed in the older... More

First of all Check in at 1 pm, great view to the beach from the room (highly recommended), magnificent meals and drinks. All the employees were very kind and gentle.

My wife and I have stayed at the Barcelo twice and have really enjoyed our stay. The hotel itself may be closer to a 3 star resort, but the staff and location more than make up for some of the issues of the hotel. We did do the premium club the first time, but decided against it the second time.... More

we got bumped off our aeromexico flight and had to find a place late at night to stay in ixtapa for 2 additional days. The barcelo was nice enough to take us without reservation. I am not a big fan of all-inclusive places but I really feel this was a good deal, especially if you bring kids. The rooms were... More

We just spent 6 days at this Barcelo. We have stayed another Barcelo. The resort was about 1/2 full. There were very few Americans. The staff mostly spoke spanish. We did the premium club upgrade and were on the top floor. Room 1222. Nice. That also gave access to premium lounge. We had a great time and enjoyed being a... More

We had a great 7-night stay at Hotel Barcelo Ixtapa Beach. All of the staff was extremely friendly and helpful, the hotel is beautiful, and right on the beach. Waiters, front desk, etc. all speak English, but communication is improved if you have good Spanish. Pools, common areas, restaurants are all in immaculate condition. Not a five-star resort, but very... More
