Another fantastic time at the Barcelo. This trip was a late honeymoon from December 1st - 12th. We booked Premium Ocean View and were located on the 9th floor. Everything worked in the room to our satisfaction. Free WiFi was included in our package and it worked great

We do not love all inclusives, but has to stay somewhere for 2 days before we left the city. The service and staff are very good. After 3 weeks in Mexico with no issue we did have some gut grief after only 2 meals here. Ixtapa itself is old and run down. The beach is nice. The

Need to improve your food quality, always cold. did not have any taste to them. just don't have any words on how DISSATISFIED we are with our stay there.Asked for agua de jamaica, all it was was a red drink loaded with sugar, taste was plain sugar water. beer was flat and warm.

1. you can take the beach and then cut over at a public access walkway or you can take the main sidewalk from in front of the resort all the way to the marina. It's about 1.5 miles. I recommend the sidewalk. 2. They take USD for sure - not sure about Canadian. It might be easier to use pesos since most prices for things are listed in pesos. 3. I asked a local this question (tips) and he told me 10-12% is expected. I always tipped 15-20 depending on the service, of course. 4. No problem with mosquitoes around the resort. My wife had a small problem with sand fleas while on the beach. We were there the first 2 weeks of December and am not sure of seasonal insect problems. I hope this helped. : )

What is the water like in January
I normally am down there in December, but I have gone the last week of February into the beginning of March before. The waves are much bigger during this time of the year than December. The beach is nice, it's clean and you can easily walk it down to the pier if you choose to do so.

I think most people go business casual. I think you're all right with long pants, shirts with sleeves, and shoes (no sandals).

"Always go premium"
"Any room with a view to the beach will offer breathtaking moments at sunset."
