like drinking coffee in the sahara

We loved the views and location. Although the beach is somewhat small, the locals were friendlier than the hotel staff. The front desk was very friendly upon arrival only. One front desk employee[...] was very rude that I requested in the hotelsatisfaction survey that he be moved to the pool cleaning services. He had no communication skills. The hotel offers 2 types of beers and ANYWHERE YOU GET THEM IN THE HOTEL ITS LIKE DRINKING A CUP OF COFFEE IN THE SAHARA DESERT-HOT! You are offered a beer and or a drink with dinner but you have to ask if you want more than one because all they offer you is one. If the views were not majestic from our roomwe probably would have preferred a different hotel. We have been in Puerto Vallarta previously and know if we go there a 3rd time it will not be at Barcelo. The only employees that were friendly were the housekeepers, perhaps the hotel will consider them and promote them to guest services.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

It is a 15 minute city bus ride from the Barcelo to downtown Puerto Vallarta. It's $ .70 cents per person one way. Just be aware of where the city bus stop is for your round trip. Everything was alot cheaper in downtown and I actually got to enjoy a COLD beer and my wife enjoyed her favorite wine.

The good and the bad

The hotel was excellent, the service was superb. Could have improved on the food variety in the buffet. Beach was the biggest disappointment of all...eroded. The ocean portion was deep and the dogs belonging to villagers next door swim in it......

Fabulous resort at a very attactive pric

Went for a friends 50th birthday party. 42 people in all from all over Canada and four from USA. Rooms were great. Great location. Very, very, very friendly and courteous staff. Food at specialty restaurants was great, food at buffet good but could be better i.e more fresh juices needed and greater salad selection would be nice. Greater food selection would be nice too. Dessert selection was good but not that extensive. The staff at the restuarants were exceptionally good and very accomodating, including all the managers and supervisors. Front desk staff good too.

Great reunion getaway

Overall our experience was great. The breakfast and lunch were great. We could always find something to eat that we liked. The desserts were excellent. The only snag was the steak dinner one night that was served away from the dining room at La Cantina. The rib eye steak was full of fat, cold and not cooked right. Our table was the last to be served and we got the impression they had run out of food. They forgot to serve our coffee which had gone cold by the time they got around it. Some had ordered salmon and they were not happy with it either.

Sightseeing tip: In Hotel

Take the boat ride along the coast - can go snorkling along the way - go to the end to a small falls. can see colorful fish in a couple of spots. can also jet ski. MONEY SAVERS: Have a massage outside the hotel on the beach. The first couple of places are excellent. They give you an hour plus for $20.00 US. You can also pick up bargains on silver jewelry - no need to go downtown. Do not go to THE CLIFF Restaurant in town for dinner. Their prices are too high for what they give you. Two Shrimps and Two Scallops and pasta for $25.00 US.

First Class all the way !!!

This was our first trip to Mexico and also to an all-inclusive resort. We found the resort to be luxurious, the rooms were exceptionally spacious and the view was breathtaking. The staff was very polite and amenities were all very upscale. The only problem we found was they used a bug fogger at 6:45 every morning right outside our room which woke us up. We enjoyed the onsite restaurants immensely. They have 3 to choose from but only had one of them open per night. This was a bit of a bummer but it was off season and the resort wasn't very crowded. The food at the nightly buffet was just so so but they served a wonderful breakfast and lunch. If you choose to go into town(about 1/2 hour ride), it was $15.00 taxi fare each way but the local bus, which was quite unique and fun, was only 60 pecos (about 45 cents). However, I would only recommend taking the bus during the day. There were several activities to choose from during the day at the resort and there was a live performance or show each night. There were also local vendors that sold their wares along the beach each day but they were not allowed on property. Actually, if you didn't want to go into town, you could spend your entire time at the resort and be perfectly content.

Paradise Found

Beautiful all-inclusive resort at a price that can't be beat. The hotel staff is extremely friendly and accomodating. There are five restaurants, each serving quality dishes. During the day, you can hang out at the pool with a Corona in hand, take a stroll on the beach, or engage in a number of adventure activities, e.g., scuba diving, snokeling, zip-lining, etc. Overall, an amazing getaway!!!

Dining tip: In Hotel

Out of the five restaurants in the hotel, three of them offer fine dining. Hence, they require reservations and a formal dress code. I suggest booking your reservations a couple days in advance, as they tend to fill up quickly.
