This was the first time I have gone to a Barcelo resort. So I will not be able to compare it to others, and so I may have a different view on it then other people who have went to other Barcelo resorts.
I will start off with the only one small little thing that I would recommend the owners to do to make this a resort that everyone would come back over and over again, would be to upgrade the bathrooms and floors in the suits. But this, in my opinion is soooo minor!
First off, I have to agree completely with other views on the service and staff here!! WOW!!! is all I can say. They are sooo ready to please and be of any service to you. I have been to 5 star resorts, and the services and workers are sooooo much better! I have personally never had drink guys come around the pool to get you a drink as often as Barcelo boys did for our week stay. I'm not saying that the minute one drink was done, did i have another, but that is unrealistic. So they came around regular, which is more then I would have expected. The food was good. Never felt like it was reheated or reused (which is what i like most about the food) I am no food critic, so I enjoyed the food most of the time. I personally thought the food was better in the indoor buffet rather then the outside, but the view was soo pretty so we ate mostly at the outside buffet.
It is a small resort... but i personally like that better. Everything was close together, and easy to learn the resort in a day or two. The beach was so/so and I say this with not Barcelo's fault at all. The waves are big and constant and the locals said it was like this for the months of April,May and June so please keep this in mind if you like to swim, snorkel off the beach. We had black flag or Red flag all week. The beach is a bit steep due to the intensity of the waves, of pushing the sand up. The water was warm (for us Canadians) but to the locals, they felt it was too cold. haha would love to see them swim in our Ontario lakes.
The activities and entertainment was AWESOME. went to a few shows, and they work really hard. The activites around the pool was my highlight as that's where I was most of the day due to not being able to swim in the ocean. Oliver was just one name to mention, and he was amazing and fun to get involved with. The activity prizes for adults were really nice and generous, So i'm glad I got to win one :)
my brother and sis in law upgraded to premium for more money, and they had a few extra perks but I personally was happy with out, and glad to have saved the money. We were in 433 and was able to see the pool and beach, which was very nice.
All in All, it was a great vacation, nice resort. and i am left with great pics and good memories. I couldn't ask for more. :) Thank you all at Barcelo Huatulco for a wonderful trip.
