My wife and I visited the complex from 11th /25th October 2012.
I chose this hotel as I thought that I could fly fish from the beach areas.
I had done a bit of research and as long as I did not fish with in 500 metres of any swimmers (Federal Law) I would be ok as the beach is governed by the Federal authority.Little did I know. !
The first attempt to fish I was in an area ropped off to swimmers because of the stoney bottom,I was wading about 20 yards out when a life guard told me that I could not fish because the beach is protected.Next day I went around the bay towards the desserted resort.I was past whare the beach ends, off of the resort.A security guard came off site to tell me to stop fishing.
He spoke English but when I asked him were I could fish he suddenly could not understand English.
I asked our First Choice tour rep and he was unaware of any protected beaches at the Barcelo.
I also asked staff at Captain Ricks fishing charters at Puerto Aventuras and they had not heard of any such regulation and said that the beach areas are Federal.
I would like a reply from the Barcelo just to explain why anglers can not fish from none swimming areas.
Apart from this the resort is good and we had a good time.Coctails are hit and miss as for spirit content.
Another bit of advice do not book when a covention is booked in as they tend to take over the bar, restauntes and get better service from the staff.
