My husband and I stayed here for our first ever trip to Mexico in April. For the most part the people at the hotel were lovely and did everything they could to make your stay wonderful. Some staff speak very good English, and others try their best, they are all very sweet. I speak fluent Spanish, so language was not an issue for us. Club Premium was a good buy as well, and came in handy many times. The lounge on the main floor is a good place to cool off, have a snack, and check e-mail. The food was nothing special, but there was lots of it and the service in the restaurants was excellent. At the Mexican restaurant you can try traditional dishes of the region. The beach and pool are beautiful and clean, although as many people say, the water is pretty rough and not ideal for children or weaker swimmers. There were lots of tiny bugs in the bathroom, and the rooms were fumigated during our stay, which we were notified about by a note under our door with the date stating the fumigation would be occurring the day before (?). We both got sick at one point during our stay, me needing to see the doctor who was prompt and kind. I am still, however, sick 2 months after our trip with no diagnosis from any doctor in Canada. I lived for several years in South America and have never had any sickness like this. We also needed to get a refund from the activities people in the front lobby, due to this illness, who accommodated us with only half of our money back, although we cancelled well before the 24 hour cut-off. We also had a fraudulent credit card charge (for women's clothing from an online Mexican company) made after using our card only once during our stay. The vacation company has still not responded to our complaint. As many reviewers say, the hotel is dated, but it was still a very lovely atmosphere. Before booking, we had heard from several people that the Barcelo chain is normally exceptional, perhaps this is at some of their other locations.
