After reading the latest reviews of the Barcelo I find it interesting to read the response from the GM. My family stayed at the Barcelo between Dec 8 & 14 and unfortuntaly also became sick. I honestly can not say why so many people were sick because on the front, it was a very nice hotel with good food and no pointers to suggest a problem. Even reading the reviews the others say the same thing. After reading the GMs comments, he is suggesting over indulgence of food and alcohol. I know in our family that was not the case. The hotel has a bit of a history for sickness during run off season. It's easy for guests to blame food and water but it seems easier for the GM to lie and say nothing was happening. Ther hotel even had a doctor makeing "house calls" to several guests on more than one day, so how can he say there was no problem?
