Overall a great vacation 30-Dec to 7-Jan. The family friendly party they put together for New Years Eve was fabulous. I just wish there were 2 meat & seafood stations at the buffet. The lineup was a bit long. For the 1st part of the week, the hotel was mostly filled with folks of Mexican background who were vacationing there....

First off, we booked with iTravel 2000 and part of the online deal included a $100 visa. Ends up we got it 2 weeks later at home. Not a big deal, just know that's the situation. Next, the property advertised free wifi in the lobby. We got linked up 1 time and after that, the front desk advised that they...

We loved the hotel. Service was amazing, the food super tasty and the rooms absolutely clean and nice. If there was some bad comments will be that the Mexica a la carte restaurant was really not good and the Japanese is not kid friendly, so we just had 2 options, the Italian restaurant and the buffet, both great. Premium drinks...

The resort is definitely a 4star. It could become a 4.5 if only more attention to detail. The Italian restaurant was no way close to being a real Italian restaurant. The quality of the food needs to be revisited at this restaurant. All rooms were suppose to have robes but they did not. The fan in our room leaked and...

Just came back from Barcelo Karmina Manzanillo. The property is beautiful and lush. Our room was very comfortable, we had a junior suite w/double beds, very large room, spacious. Loved all the fushia bougainvillias against the white stucco. The food is average, but all in all a very good deal. Nice little cove and beach for kids.

Barcelo Karmina is in a lovely location. The resort has potential but unfortunately, it did not live up to it’s full potential. First, we flew with Sunwing on Dec. 30th, from Toronto. We were not happy at all with Sunwing. Our gate was switched without any announcement after our boarding passes were printed. Our flight was delayed for 2 hours...
