I have stayed in Mismaolya but not only at Barcelo. it is a beautiful setting and I stayed the In 1989 when it was half completed. I stayed again in 2000 before Barcelo owned it. The beach is a big shortcoming because most of it eroded in the last 10 years and replenishment has not been successful. The pools are beautiful. Dont get too fussy about service it's Mexico not St. Bart's or Crystal Cruise. It's about chips salsa, beer and Tequila. Affordability, informality and fun.
The bus to town stops in front and is 70 pesos. $.50. Unless you have kids never stay in an all inclusive. Puerto Vallarta has hundreds of the best and most varied restaurants in the world. Wald around Old Town and the waterfront Malecon. It is 100% safer than Rome or Barcelona.
All inclusive food is at best cruise ship quality and worst school cafeteria. If you get sick, sorry. I was in Mismaolya Christmas to New Years and except for acid from so much spice my 71 year year stomach was fine. When I got home to NY half the people I spoke to were sick.
I took walks on the road 3 miles to Boca beach and my 64 year old wife jogged on the road towards Town.
