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.

Food could be better, but great overall

The property and location was wonderful. The staff was great and the room was nice. I definitely recommend everyone pay for the premium package. You get discounts at the gift shop, You get to go to all the specialty restaurants, wi-fi is included, and you get some discount off the spa as well! If you take advantage of those items, the premium package is worth it. The wi-fi was shoddy with my mobile devices, but worked great on my pc/laptop/Surface Pro tablet. The food could have been better. Everything was somewhat bland, a little runny, or too crumbly. But it was fine for what we paid for. The excursion guides were extremely helpful and they can pick you up directly from the beach or hotel, but it was only for Vallarta Adventures. Any other excursions would have to be on your own. Overall, I would say this was a great stay as long as you pay for the premium package.

Great resort!

First time at Barcelo and it was fantastic. They had activities going on all the time. The bartenders were very good and the activity staff were a lot of fun. We went with a total of ten people and were accommodated with no problems. Food was good in the buffet and great in the restaurants. Very comfortable beds.

14th times here

We will go back again. The hotel food is good not great and staff very helpful. Tipping a few pesos helps. The location is perfect. The small town of Mismaloya gives a quiet taste of old Mexico and it is only a 15 minute bus ride to the activities of Puerto Vallarta. Party late in town one night and rest peacefully by the pool the next. Book a fishing trip or scenic boat ride with the local fisherman to Yalapa. If you catch a fish on the way, the restaurants there will cook it for lunch. Feel free to get out of the hotel. Too many people stay there every day and never leave. Have lunch or dinner at several restaurants in Mismaloya. Don't let it scare you if you're the only table seated. You're in the jungle , so bring and use bug spray on your legs. I have found the best weather is March and April. October is good but you get afternoon showers.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Visit Yalapa. It is a town south of Mismaloya with restaurants on the beach, a waterfall in the rainy season flows in the middle of town and can be accessed with a short walk from the beach. Use the local fisherman and fish your way there or just view the coastline as they shuttle you there. You can see photos by searching the web.

4th Visit

We had a wonderful visit. We have enjoy the location and value of this resort. It is off the beaten path, but you can easily take a cab or bus to visit PV. The food at the site restaurants was mostly good. It has been better in the past, we think. The service was very welcoming. They are quick to assist you and make your visit more comfortable in any way possible.

Relaxing is amazing at Barceló

First and for most, the staff was extremely friendly. They were very prompt and service was great! The balcony view was awesome! On my first day I spent it around the pool area enjoying the sun, but my favorite little place to relax was on the beach. There was not as many people as by the pool so it was ideal to read my book, stare at the ocean view, and my personal favorite to take a "siesta" with the wave as the background sound. I would definitely return to this place!:)

Hidden GEM with EXCELLENT staff

This resort is tucked away in between beautiful green mountains. The beach is very nice, no seaweed, and the sand is soft with some little rocks, but no big deal. Restaurants are nice, I definitely would go to the restaurants over the buffet. Fav part: Breakfast buffet!! I loved it!! Delicious!! Vanessa helped us a ton!! She even had flowers and balloons waiting for us in our room (i contacted her ahead of time for the fam surprise for a very small fee to buy the materials). I'd go again!

Very nice hotel, food could be better still...

This hotel is extremely nice, the rooms and other amenities are really 4star quality. The hotel is not in the center of Puerto Vallarta, it requires a 45 minute taxi drive from the airport and 30 minutes from the Marina zone. The city center is at 20 minutes. The food in the buffet is good, especially the breakfast. The "specialty" restaurants did not convince me.
