I got back from a 2 week stay at the Barcelo Costa Cancun yesterday and loved it . Our room was exactly as described and photographed in the brochure. The room was really big, had a gorgeous view of the sea, the shower was really great and there was always hot water, our mini bar was filled with soft drinks, water, lager and snacks everyday. The room was also cleaned everyday and fresh towels and sheets changed.
We ate at the buffet restaurant for breakfast each day and sometimes on a lunch and evening time, there was a good selection of food and drinks including cocktails, the staff were really friendly and helpful. We also ate at all three a la carte restaurants (Spanish Mexican and Seafood) they were all excellent . There was a 24 hour snack and drinks bar on the 2nd floor which we used a few times and this was a good option if we had missed meal times, it had salads hot dogs pizza a selection of spirits, corona and soft drinks. In the snack bar there was internet access too which cost around £3 for half an hour.
The hotel has a large pool and small beach area which were both lovely and beach towels were provided. During the day there were lots of activities i did aqua aerobics and water polo this was really fun, they also did beach and water volley ball among other things. The staff in the entertainment team were lovely Alberto Jo Octavio Ivania and Jimmy and one other who's name i have forgotten ( i might have spelt them wong too). We booked a night out with the hotel to Coco Bongo's and were expecting to be dropped off at the club . The entertainment team came in with us and stayed looking after us and making sure we had a great night. I would recommend going on club nights with the hotel we didnt have to queue and had a seperate area of the club with a bar and staff bringing us drinks.
We saw 2 of the shows whilst in the hotel a Micheal Jackson Tribute and a Carribean show , these were both really good . The dancers were very talented and the shows were professional and well put together.
Mario helped us to book some really brilliant trips and spent time explaining the trips to us in detail and giving us advice on what to take with us . This really helped us to decide which ones to choose. The trips we went on were Coba Maya Encountar expedition with alltournative, Xel-ha and Tulum, chichen Itza and Isla Mujares they were all amazing.
The experience we had staying in this hotel was down to the staff they were helpful and so friendly. Throughout our time at the Barcelo we got to know them and it sounds strange but you really feel your part of something there and it was really sad to leave. Mexico is an unbelievable place to visit and there are so many amazing things to see there, the mayan culture , jungle and beaches are stunning . I found everything about this hotel to be brilliant and would definately go back if i had the chance to.
