Definitely will return to this hotel. Staff friendly, food at the buffet had lots of choice for all liking. The Mexican a la Carte restaurant was not to everyones taste, therefore, read the menu before you book. Went deep see fishing reserved thru the hotel and after 5 hours, we caught a "Rock fish". Nothing not even a bite just...

Very highly recommended. Large clean rooms, excellent culinary buffet style food better than the a la carte restaurants. The sport/entertainer director, Christian Diaz, was lively and fun. He was able to get lots of people involved in sports and Kareoke. Our favorite server was Israel, he was able to communicate well with us and met our needs. Also we had...

Okay let's be honest here. We stayed at Barcelo for 2 weeks starting Feb 22nd. We should have left the hotel when we entered into our room and a maintenance man had a huge bug sprayer in his hands. Then I slipped on the water from the air conditioner dripping on the floor. Our first a la carte was in...

So this was our first time in Manzanillo. We usually vacation at resorts around Playa del Carmen so this was new for us. Booked with Sunwing for two weeks at the Barcelona Karmina. As indicated by previous people, checking into the hotel is done at the airport. Airport is small (one runway) and easy to navigate. Travel to the hotel...

The hotel was great and the room that we stayed in was fantastic. Food was great, the room that we were in (supreme) was always nice and clean when we got back from the day, and housekeepers were great. The only thing I would suggest would be to have more staff on at the front desk when flights came in....

Just returned from a fabulous week at the Barcelo Karmina - we loved every minute of it! Surrounded by mountains this mid-sized resort was terrific. Big enough to offer plenty to do, yet intimate enough to meet and enjoy time with other vacationers. It was the most social trip we have been on as a family. My wife and I...

We decided to take a trip this past March Break and go on a southern vacation. We found this package that took us to Manzanillo Mexico. This area is not a typical tourist trap. The city claims tourism as only third of their income. We stayed at the Barcelo Karmina. This resort was absolutely beautiful, from the grounds, the architecture,...

Enjoyed our week at the Barcelo and the less touristy town of Manzanillo and area. Previously read many of the often repetitive reviews which emphasize that the experience of travel is a personal journey of choice and that we all have very different expectations. I realize this is a lengthy review, however it contains different information. Overall we loved our...
