I visited the hotel a few months ago with my family, but I can’t explain how good the hotel is! The hotel and the staff attention exceeded my expectations; actually, the hotel is not the largest, but all the space is made the most of, it also has a nice and large pool, and many beach-beds, so, you won’t be able to stay without a place to relax and drink something while you hear the waves of the sea. The hotel has a small part of the private beach, there are few people there, and that's amazing because you can be more relaxed sunbathing without so many noisy people everywhere, really the hotel is in an amazing area. The rooms are very beautiful, they are very spacious and have good decoration in them, they have modern furniture and the room always has a very nice temperature, you could be there all day if you wanted hahaha, but you would like to go to the restaurant. I don’t lie when I say that Barceló’s food is the most delicious food I’ve ever eaten, they have a great variety of dishes and that’s a very good point for them. I think the hotel is perfect to go relax and enjoy the service that the staff provides so kindly, because it genuinely has a very relaxed environment perfect for families of adult members or for couples. I would definitely go back soon.

Hotel's Favorite
The rooms are large & comfortable. Balcony’s are large too. The staff are very accommodating & helpful. My husband thinks they need an update but I liked them. Beds are comfortable, couch a little low. Lots of marble. Don’t walk on wet marble with wet feet, you will slip. The shower is large & walk in. They provide shampoo, conditioner & gel in the shower. Towels are nice & big. The buffet is really good but there are other restaurants that most need reservations. You are allowed so many reservations depending on your length of stay. We only used the one pool. I went in the hot tub once, it’s to hard to get in & out of. It’s set at 98 degrees so not to hot. I would come again. I didn’t go in the ocean as I was told by friends that it’s steep. I have mobility issues so took their word.

The service is friendly from the moment you arrive to when you leave. I was very impressed the with the location even though it is a little longer than a short drive from the airport. The grounds are beautifully maintained, the drinks are good and the food is also good. You can't beat the beauty of being right on Mismaloya Beach. I would go back to this resort any day.

My partner and I stayed at Barcelo Puerto Vallarta over this past March break and we simply did not want to leave! We were so pleasantly surprised with how clean the resort is, how wonderful the food tastes and how amazing the service is. A big shout out to the hard working staff, especially Carlos at the buffet. He was very attentive, always had a smile and super friendly. He also spoke English very well as did most of the staff which made it so much more fun to be able to get to know them. They all really try their hardest to make your vacation a positive one! We had a wonderfully large suite, with 2 separate bedrooms and 2 full washrooms! We felt like a King and Queen. It was a great surprise! We are used to larger resorts but honestly, this was just perfect for us. We met so many people who had been to this exact resort more than a handful of times and we totally understand why! Kudos to the management team and exceptional staff - your contributions do not go unnoticed! We appreciate all your love and accommodations. Thank you so very much! :)

My boyfriend and I stayed at Barceló Puerto Vallarta March 6 to the 12th and had a great time! Check in: we had a hiccup at check in, we booked our vacation through Cheap Caribbean and paid for premium wrist bands but when we arrived the resort had our reservation for the regular wrist bands. After 30 minutes of contacting Cheap Caribbean and talking to Barceló reservations they gave us our premium wrist bands. The room: our room was really nice and had a great view. The room was updated and clean. The maid service was great and they cleaned our room really well everyday. The beach: the beach was small but clean, not many people from the resort were on the beach and we had no problems finding chairs. I wish the beach was bigger to walk down. My boyfriend and I love beach walks so that was a downside for us. I did get a wonderful massage down the beach for $20! It was so good, I got a massage 3 times during my stay! The pool: I loved the pool bar and I never had to wait to get a drink because the staff was really attentive and the pool was never too crowded. There were a few more pools as well as a hot tub but I stayed at the pool with the bar most of the time! The restaurants: I tried to keep an open mind on this because a lot of the reviews about the food were bad. We really liked the snack bar. They had your typical pool/lunch food! The pizza and wraps were great! We ate there everyday for lunch. The breakfast was the best: they had fresh juice and amazing mimosas. They had an omelette bar and fresh fruit! It was amazing. We also ate at the buffet for dinner twice and it was okay. Nothing exceptional though. We ate at the A la cart restaurants as well. The Italian restaurant was okay. I liked my seafood pasta but my boyfriend didn’t like his dish. The best restaurant was Los Arcos! I had an amazing salmon and my boyfriend had steak! It was great! I also liked the sushi restaurant, the sushi was good! Also, we were super happy we got the premium wrist bands so that we got top shelf alcohol! I got to drink grey goose all week and it was amazing! Overall we really enjoyed our time at Barceló
