Unexpected Party Time

Before the very large Tequila swilling group checked in, the hotel was fantastic. Great music by the pool, etc. Afterwards it was a very different, non-kid friendly place. I was very glad to leave. I like a good party atmosphere, but this was fall down, very vulgar atmosphere.

no bueno beach

The hotel was not as bad as the awful reviews I read before we went and after we had already booked it. Thankfully We did not have high expectations for the food as we have been to Mexico several times, but the food was really not good at all. The best food is at the restaurant by the beach where they make fresh tacos for lunch. The beach was small and there were no waves for the kids. There were boats right out from the hotel and you could book them directly which was nice for excursions. The service was good and the staff was very friendly. The grounds were pretty and well maintained and the rooms and beds were nice and comfortable. The setting is very pretty in the mountains and very lush, but that also causes lots of bugs and after reading reviews we came prepared with lots of bug spray but were still eaten alive. Over all we had a great time but would not stay at this hotel again.

Warm getaway

Stayed for a destination wedding. The suite was very, very nice, but we hardly spent any time in the room, as that is not why we went to Mexico. The grounds were pretty, but some of the pools were too cold. The room towers were so tall and surrounded the grounds so that they often blocked the sun and we would have to move to a different spot. We all got terrible bug bites that were huge and itched like crazy-strange as we never saw any bugs. There is hardly any beach-the tide comes in so far in the morning that the waves crash against the resort, so there is no beach In the mornings. The beach is often quite rocky. The volleyball net broke and no one was interested in fixing it and that is one of our large family's favorite activities. The buffet has a lot of variety, but a lot of it is bland.

Quality Time with Family in Paradise!

The location is fantastic with beautiful scenery! Overall the hotel is great. However, I would recommend new elevators, and the game room is a little dated. The staff was very friendly, and the service was great! They really go out of their way to help you, and make sure you are enjoying your stay. I was disappointed with the buffet. The food was luke warm, and sometimes cold. I have stayed at other all inclusive resorts with better selection and more variety of different foods. However, the other restaurants were good. My only complaint was the buffet! I highly recommend the zoo which is walking distance from the hotel.....it was a great experience! You can feed the animals, and have the option to interact with them as well! My boys truly enjoyed it! Make sure you go into town and enjoy the boardwalk. There are a lot of vendors, nice shops, bars, and delicious food! Overall, it was a great experience! We love spending our Holidays in Mexico!

You can be eating somebody's leftovers

We had a terrible experience in Don Quhote restaurant where one of us was given soup that the other person just ate ( and did not finish) . We talked to the waiter and the next day complained to the manager. They sounded apologetic but we think that it is a common practice there. A lot of our friends ( we had a large group of people) had stomach problems during the stay. The hotel does not use disposable cups but plastic ones which they do not clean properly.

Not so good

I was really disapointed with our time in Barceló. The add picture is showing nice beach but the beach is public and most of it is occupied by locals. The hotel has 10 feet wide strip only.The food was really substandard. A lots of the guest were locals, so the food was designated for them. And if you are not in Mexican food you have bad luck. Meat was sitting on the self for three days and it was hard as bark. Friday dinner was so bad that we did not eat at all. We will not recommend this hotel to anybody. We were before in other Barceló hotel and you can not compare.

Fun times in Puerto Vallarta

The hotel was wonderful, clean, great food, and very accommodating staff. Very nice location with a very interesting real-mexico village behind the resort and walking access to zip lining and Predator movie set. The al a carte beachside restaurant was excellent - nice to have another option besides the buffet. Beach was good - but not the greatest for swimming. I will go back again because it is away from the main tourist areas and has easy access to tours and if the beach wasn't my main priority.
