Barcelo was a nice stay. My family and I enjoyed our stay. The staff was very accommodating and attentive. I had issues with my luggage from American Airlines and the staff was helpful in helping me call baggage and everything. The rooms were clean. I only wish that with the half board that they include better meal selections. But everything is was great.

El servicio del personal del hotel fue nice. Solo que no hubo buena respuesta sobre tours y servicio de transporte al aeropuerto. Adicional en las horas del desayuno el restaurante del hotel tiene muy poco personal. En cuanto a todo lo demás estuvo bien.
