This review is going to be pretty long, but will have some important info. This hotel has been our favorite for several years. We first stayed there in 2000 and returned every year and absolutely loved it. Until this trip it was owned by Best Day then Real Resorts, but around Oct/Nov '06 it was purchased by the Barcelo Resorts....

My husband and I stayed at the Barcelo Costa Cancun from January 20-27. We didn't know what to expect from this resort, as we were originally booked into another Cancun AI, and switched at the last minute. We did have time to read some reviews before we left and the only real negative we could find were complaints about the...

We have just returned from a 2 week holiday at the Barcelo Costa. 27 December - 11 January 2007. We were a little worried as the hotel had changed it's name between our booking and our arrival but we needn't have worried at all. Our room was spotlessly clean as was the rest of the hotel. Restaurant waiters (and the...

We stayed at the Barcelo from Jan 12-19. My husband and I traveled with our two young children and my parents. We were a little worried that the hotel changed owners and the reviews seemed to decline since then, but we thought the hotel was quite lovely. We had a junior suite which was big enough for 2 adults and...

Hola! My fiancee and I stayed at the Barcelo Costa Cancun from Jan 13-20, 2007. After reading some not-so-nice reviews, we were pleasantly surprised. The resort is very new, clean, and safe. Our room was clean and spacious, including a large TV with DVD player, and a bar fridge that was stocked daily and was part of our all-inclusive package....

We just returned from Cancun. There was me, my husband and another couple that went. We've never been to Cancun before and was pleasantly surprised. The hotel was really nice.
