A great Entrance to a Mexican paradise

My wife and I travelled to Ixtapa and wanted a comfortable stay and the opportunity to know more about the culture of Mexico. We got more than we hoped for, excellent food and drinks, friendly and courteous service, and great entertainment. The hotel is located at one of the best spots at El Palmar Beach if you want to get in the ocean. We highly recommend this place., this place deserves all stars it has and more !

just O K

Stayed 11 days in Feb. 2014. Hotel location and beach are #1. Rooms need to be updated a bit. Our ac worked fine, our friend ac did not. The rooms are showing their age. Food is average. O K for 3-4 days. Service in Don Coyote was good 1 nite and very bad another nite. Service of dining waiters and pool waiters is not great. Staff did not make much effort to create any personal relationships. Steak House food and service was very good. I think a bit overpriced for value recieved. Could be a great hotel with better food and better service and a little updating.

"Welcome Home"

That is how we are greeted whenever we return to this hotel. We have been staying @ the Barcelona for many years. The accommodations are great. But what really makes this place is the staff. They always go above and beyond to make your stay a positive one.

Great vacation for the money!

Beach has strong current...would want something calmer if we brought the kids. Hotel is nice but we had hoped for a little more food variety. Buffets seemed to have about the same thing every day. One of the two swim-up bars was not open a few days during the week. Pools close at 7PM. Shows at the hotel were ok...performers were very talented but shows could have been better. Location in Ixtapa was excellent. Within walking distance to shops and restaurants...15 minute bus ride to Zihuatanejo. Fabulous weather the entire time! Staff was very nice and very helpful.

Winter Get-away

We stayed at the Barceló Ixtapa Beach for 2 weeks from January 24-Feb. 7. Though an OLDER hotel, we loved it. We had a room on the 11th floor w/ a fantastic ocean view. The room had pillow top beds, large shower with a rain showerhead, small balcony, small safe in the closet , flat-screen TV, plenty of large bath sheets each day. (I heard that the hotel rooms are gradually being renovated so maybe we lucked out in that sense). The room was kept immaculate the entire time. Each day the maid left us some kind of animal towel art. The food, mostly buffet, was excellent and had good variety each day. There are also 3 a-la-carte restaurants --Spanish, steak and seafood and sushi--for which one needed advance reservations. If someone could not find something they liked to eat among the many choices, then they are way to fussy. The food did get a bit monotonous after 2 weeks but we went across the street and into the town of "Z" to eat a few times to provide variety. Though this hotel, like most in Ixtapa now, is all-inclusive, eating out is very inexpensive and helps contribute to the well-being of the Mexican people who live there. There are 5 pools at the hotel--1 for adults only w/ a swim-up bar, 3 for families, and 1 with a cute slide for very small children. There were plenty of lounge chairs around the pools and in the sand on the beach facing the ocean. All of the staff at the hotel were very friendly and hard working, from the desk staff to the people working in the restaurants and those cleaning and maintaining the public areas, and the grounds. We did notice that the total number of staff had been greatly reduced since we were last at this hotel. The slow economy has obviously affected this area as the hotel was not full by any means. Every night there is excellent entertainment provided in the hotel's special theatre right on the property. We have stayed at other Barceló hotels around Mexico and have loved them all which is why we keep booking at this hotel chain. Best of all-- the weather here is FANTASTIC every single day, and, along with the awesome beach, are the main reasons we keep coming back to IXTAPA.

Eight days in Paradise

We love this hotel - we gone with friends two years in a row now! The location is perfect, right on the beach, and several swimming pools to choose from. My husband enjoys the fishing and parasailing. I enjoy shopping. The cuzine is endless and so much variety, our fav is the Characol Grill... quick to serve and everything so delicious. The staff is always very nice and accommodating.

Family Getaway

The only things that we enjoyed were the beach, swimming pools, and the shows at night.. Rooms horrible maintenance, even we reserved 8 the rooms 8 months ago, when we got there they look as they did not have the rooms available and one time a service person when around 10 pm asking if the room was habitad or available. they need to be more organized...
