We travelled to the Barcelo in Puerto Vallarta in October 2011. This was our first experience staying at a Barcelo resort. When we arrived, my husband asked if we could upgrade out suite. The front desk was really good and suggested we could take the Grand Master Suite. The deal was a great one so we took it.
The Grand Master Suite was a 1500 sq ft apartment without the kitchen (because why would you need a kitchen at an all-inclusive?). The deck wrapped around the whole suite and allowed us to watch the little village that was right beside the hotel.
The Barcelo PV is right on the beach. It is the only resort in the bay out by Mismaloya(?). The beach was great. The ocean was beautiful. This is the resort where The Night of the Iguana was filmed. The iguana is still on the pole and is a great site to walk to.
The Spa is on the second floor and you can have your massage out on the balcony (the spa was actually right across the resort from our room). It was very relaxing to lay outside to have my massage and hear the ocean. The service in the Spa was really good as well.
The staff were attentive. The room was always clean and the drinks plentiful. If we had one complaint, it was that the food wasn't as good as other resorts.
But we would go back to this resort.
