I have been to various areas in Mexico and Ixtapa/Zhiu was my favorite. This hotel is a regular hotel, period. Nice rooms, clean, etc. but just like a Hilton, Sheraton or Radisson. Regular room. Don't waste money on all-inclusive!!! We booked the room for the week and enjoyed the great restaurants throughout Ixtapa and Zhiu. Especially La Perla on La...

After looking online for countless hours for a honeymoon destination, we confidently decided to go with the all-inclusive package that the Barcelo was offering. We got the package for a very great rate on beachdestinations[-]; in fact, it was about $500 less than the EXACT SAME vacation offered by Apple Vacations. When we pulled up to the hotel, we were...

I spent May 30th through June 6th at the Barcelo Resort (8 nights). I chose the Barcelo All Inclusive since I was goiing alone and thought that an A-I would be better for a single attractive middle aged woman. When I arrived at the hotel I was impressed. The resort is most attractive. My first room had a broken safe,...

After reading some of the reviews, we were hesitant to book Barcelo, but very glad we did. The front desk was wonderful and so helpful with everything. The food was good, especially breakfast. The beach is the best we have seen in Mexico and we've seen quite a few. We are really surprised by some of the complaints read in...

My sister and two other friends travelled to Ixtapa, Mexico March 16 - 24, 2005. We went all inclusive at the Barcelo Ixtapa Beach Resort. I can't describe the great time we had. Every night there was excellent entertainment and at the pool you could be entertained or just enjoy the sunshine. We felt very safe. The food was just...

My husband and I just returned from the Barcelo in Ixtapa. This was our first trip to Mexico and we really enjoyed it. Although the building isn't new, it is very clean. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The beach was clean and not over crowded at this time of the year. The weather was great, although a little...

This is a beautiful vacation destination for anybody. The hotel is very nice, not luxurious, but nice. The people are amazing and always there to help. I went in at an off season time of year so I did not experience any problems with getting chairs on the beach or by the pool. The food is...plentiful. You can eat alot...
