You can't get much better than this!

What a pleasure to wake up to an oceanview and sunshine everyday with temps in the mid 80's. After a leasurely breakfast it was time to hit the pool or ocean and the sun. The pina coladas were delicious and plentiful. Shopping was unique and very handy right across the street from the hotel. For a more unique experience we took a bus ride into Zihuatanejo for more shopping and fun (cost was very reasonable.) We took a tour from the hotel one day. Our guide was very personable and knowledgeable. We visited a school, made a clay tile, visited a nature preserve had lunch and a boat ride at a lagoon. Great fun!!!!! We have been at this Barcelona before and find it very very nice. We would classify this trip right up with the best!

Barcelo......great!

This hotel was great. The shows are for young and old and the dinner with it, excellent. The outside bars and restaurants need to expand their hours. The location was perfect as there was shopping right across the street, local buses make city travel cheap. The surf was dangerous for anybody that's not a strong ocean swimmer or for small children. Swimming with the dolfins is worth the money! The hotel also needs bigger beds. The duck dinner at the Don Quijote restaurant is a must! These guys know the meaning of "All Inclusive"!

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.

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 !
