NICE resort

Posted Apr 21, 2015
Friendly staff, food was excellent and our room was perfect, clean and had a great view of the ocean and the mountains! Pools were fantastic and had fun activities for all different ages. Beach is on the smaller side but was perfect.

Wonderful 25th Anniversary

Posted Apr 20, 2015
Pros: The food was delicious.
Cons: No improvements come to mind.
My husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at the Barceló from April 12-16 and it was wonderful. The resort is beautiful. The rooms were lovely and clean. The hotel staff were very attentive to our needs. From the front desk to the wait staff to the laundry service, everyone was so great. Highly recommended.

Great resort and really convenient

Posted Apr 6, 2015
Cons: internet access is really poor.
We had a blast at the resort, lots of activities, great food, very helpful people. Also it was very convenient to get to a lot of places from the hotel - zoo is within walking distance, zip lining is really close, getting to downtown is very convenient and the mismolaya beach is right there.

Enjoyable experience and resort

Posted Apr 5, 2015
The hotel staff were extremely friendly for the most part. Our reservations got messed up and our rooms were not all booked together as planned. They upgraded us to 3 family suites all in the same area for no charge. They were very accommodating to us! The pool activity staff was so much fun and it was a relaxing yet very enjoyable time. Drinks at the pool/swim up bar sometimes took a long time and were forgotten some of the time. The food was good, a lot of seafood options. The WiFi you had to pay for and only worked in certain areas, frequently going in and out of service. The beach was clean and had a decent amount of chairs. I don't think you need to do Club Premium in order to have a great time. The spa was fantastic and a good price...well worth it!! I would definitely go back as well as try other Barceló locations.

Nice location

Posted Apr 4, 2015
Enjoyed the location out of town a bit, but right on the water. Close walk to the zoo, which was fun. The only area for improvement I could see would be the fitness area. They only have a couple cardio machines & not all of them worked.

Very good hotel overall

Posted Apr 2, 2015
Pros: Great food selections and varieties. Room was very clean and services was decent.
Cons: Noise levels and musics can be heard while on the 4th floor. Rooms not very well insulated against noise and music from the bar area.
Hotel was very clean and most of the staffs were very attentive and professional. The atmosphere was very relaxing and the area was well managed. Restaurant reservation was difficult to book for my preferred time even though it wasn't full. The only drawback is the fact that when you're on the beach, you have these VERY annoying locals/merchants next to the hotel trying to sell their products and services. They constantly harassed us to buy their products and services everyday while on the beach. It's very annoying because I just wanted to relax and be left alone.

Beautiful resort with amazing staff!

Posted Apr 2, 2015
Pros: Cleanliness, helpful staff.
Cons: Not a lot of food variety. Pants req'd for men in the restaurants - a bit much in the tropics. Room service is full price. beach vendors annoying.
Location: Far from town (~20 minutes, and 40 minutes from the airport). public transpo easy. taxis cheap.
Staff is phenomenal! Friendly and helpful from the maids all the way to the managers. Feeling is truly "anything you want". Rooms and common areas are incredibly clean at all times - staff works non-stop to keep it that way. Great family environment - always something to do.
