We stayed two nights in early January at the Barcelo (at the beginning and end of our trip). Since all the premium rooms were closed for renovation, we stayed in standard non-smoking rooms. Our first room faced the volcano and our second room faced the pool. Both had little balconies with sliding glass doors. The first room was definitely more worn and dingy than the second, perhaps because more people ask for the volcano view and those rooms are used more often? The beds in both rooms were very comfortable and the bathrooms were modern. The hot water in our first room was very hot and we had to be careful with our kids using it on their own. The common areas of the hotel smelled very strongly of air freshener on our first night, but that was much better when we returned. The front desk staff were professional, but not particularly warm or friendly. The security guards and bellmen did not acknowledge or greet us, unless we greeted them first. The breakfast buffet at La Vista restaurant is plentiful and full of variety, but some of the food didn’t taste particularly fresh. The fruit juices were really icky—the orange tasted suspiciously like Tampico. The outdoor pool area is pleasant and the water temperature is very nice. We swam on an afternoon that was not particularly warm and as long as we stayed submerged in the pool, it felt great. The location of the Barcelo and the hourly free shuttle to and from the airport are convenient features.
