I have stayed at this hotel/resort on four previous locations. I enjoy the weather, beach and location. I was very disappointed about their new WiFi policy! $12.00 US per day period! For us Canadians that is about $15.60 Canadian per day. Nothing but a rip off! I know a lot of people need to stay in touch for business reasons... More

My sister and I stayed fromJan.19-27.First time at this resort and also to the Ixtapa area. This trip reminded me of why I loved Mexico when I started coming in the 90's. Everyone was friendly and helpful and it was so clean and felt very safe when we went for long walks in the area after dark. The beach was... More

This was our 18th stay at the Barcelo and for the most part everything was satisfactory. Kudos to Ms. Gloria Lopez for having the hawk attendants rid the resort of the black grackels. What a nice change on the beach and outdoor restaurants. The staff who I have gotten to know over the years are why we keep returning.Everyone from... More

We were not staying at Barcelo but next door. On the advice of friends we went for dinner at the Barcelo Restaurant. We had the pleasure of meeting the manager Senor Manual Ortega Corona and his team. The whole experience was wonderful and I was compelled to share this with tripadvisor. If you are staying in Ixtapa you should try... More

Little late with this. The Barceló was actually very nice. Yes, older property, but the staff and cleanliness of the property really makes up for it! I have to admit, I was rather disappointed with the room. we were in 636 to start with, but it was requested to be on the 6yth floor or higher, and that's what we... More

Lovely resort with ocean front rooms. Very nice beach for walking and lovely pool area. This hotel does not have a Lobby Bar, one must sit at a table and wait for a waiter to come then you order a drink. Because of this there is a lack of social interaction as everyone is at their own table. There is... More

This place was huge. Very poor connection and costly wifi. The rooms were ok, worth it to get ocean view. Food was good , variety and tasty. All the good loungers were reserved from early morning, has to be a better way. Rooms needed better cleaning, didn't appreciate long dark hair on the bathroom floor. Good location, but hard to...

Barcelo is the best place to stay. Great service, nice pool, ocean view and best service. Food is good, entertainment around pool is fun. Hotel workers are always willing to help. View from the room is best at sunset.
