Great for families!

Kids loved the place - they have a lot of activities and great facilities for kids. The food is a little bland, but it is typicle for all-inclusive hotels. Even though the hotel is further away from the town and the airport it is close to Los Arcos and the Zoo. I would recommend to pay for the premium club as it offers a lot of additional benefits ( better rooms, late check-out, discout in the spa and stores, club room access etc.)

Last minute stay

Booked several hours before I got there, so check in was a real hassle. Recommend an upgraded room

Great deal, cool place but far from town

My wife and I loved the place. We were there to relax, and it was perfect. The only downsides were the location and the beach. This hotel was a 35 minute ride from town so if you want to explore the city, you are in for a long bus or cab ride. The beach was small and had a large drop off so it was either ankle deep or swimming. Other than that, it was perfect. Great food, entrrtaient, pool, drinks and rooms.

Fantastic family getaway!

i put 5 stars, because of personal feeling about my stay in this hotel. Don't get me wrong, i don't wanna compare this hotel with real 5 stars hotels. Their luxuriousness can easily cover fifth star i put for Barcelo, and they are twice, even three times more expensive, but that cozy feeling you have in this hotel, probably never will have in the others, even for more money, also everybody has his own preferences. Really exotic surroundings, beautiful wild nature, perfect view, size of hotel, friendly, nice, helpful personnel, good quality food, gave me that feeling. Of course there is always room for improvements. For example, beds, which is important when you stay in hotel, by my opinion, are little bit hard, could be better. Also could be more in hotel entertainment. But that didn't spoil my vacation at all. i have had what i want! Definitely will go there again!

Comfortable rooms, poor service

Rooms was great, but service is not good. Food is ok, but very limited choice. A la cart restaurant: Italian is not good at all. Spanish is perfect. Pool is not clean and water too hot. Lobby does not have even fan.Room mini bar has 1 coke, 1 light coke, 1 juice, 1 beer, 1 light beer and 1 water for 2 people. So we look around for extra water!!!

Great stay!!

Have been to this hotel multiple times and always have a good time. It is low season this time of year and a convention checked in the last couple days we were there. Unfortunately, when a convention checks in everything becomes about them. They did aerobics at 7am by the pool and blasted music for over 45 minutes. Other than that the stay was excellent.

Barcelo- Puerto Vallarta

A group of friends and I booked a week in Mexico and stayed at Barceló. Overall, it was a good experience. The rooms were spacious, clean and each of us had an ocean view (all of the rooms actually have an ocean view!). We went at the end of March/ beginning of April and the weather was perfect every day (85 and sunny). We spent most days at the pool. The pool bar and activities staff were the best part of this resort in my opinion... very friendly and accommodating. Some of the negatives include the food selection. The resort feeds guests most meals in their buffet... mediocre at best. There were a couple of restaurants open for dinner, which required a reservation, and some of the food seemed like it was rolled over from the buffet. On a personal note, the wait staff indicated that all of their water was filtered and drinkable. This is NOT the case! I returned from Mexico with travelers flu that required antibiotics. Lesson learned on my part! Overall, a fun/ relaxing experience!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

There were several locals who kept their boats banked near the hotel's beach. For a reasonable price, they'll take you out for 1-3 hours and give you a tour of the area or take you snorkeling if you like.

Mixed Bag

The hotel has a friendly and hard-working staff, and the pools are very nicely kept (clean and well-heated). Those are the highlights. For the rest of it: the food is mediocre at best; there is no real beach (a small stretch of very coarse sand -- no sandcastles here!) and the water is not well-suited for swimming, especially for children (there is a large drop-off just a few feet into the water and then it's deep enough that an adult doesn't touch the bottom). The resort is also pretty far from town -- easily accessible by bus (inexpensive) or taxi -- so it's an excursion. I've heard that the resort has been purchased and will be changing ownership. Hopefully they'll make some needed changes.
