Definitely sub-par mood, culture , fun factor, and beach

I've stayed at Barcelo hotels in several different Mexico locations. Would never stay at this location again. Poolside activities, music, mood and fun factor are almost non existent. Over all dull, no fun atmosphere. Totally different than any previous experience. Water inaccessible at beach due to dangerous heavy surf no matter the weather. Floors in entire room were extremely dirty and stained even after specifically requesting them to be cleaned. Hotel,and hotel grounds are beautiful. Hotel wait staff was curious and professional. Food was average.

Not what we expected

Could have been better. The hotel was beautiful.So far from everything, wasn't much to do at the resort. I cab cost so much money. We were hassle after getting off our flight thinking we were getting just a good deal on a cab and were talked into timeshare presentation, that we didn't care for. We were only there 3-4 days and spend a few hours talking about something we knew we were going to purchase.

Getaway weekend

I have stayed at many upscale resorts including all inclusive. I have not one complaint. Everything was very good. Grounds beautiful, great staff, good service, beautiful room. Most of Cabo beaches are not swim able. But beach was still beautiful to sit on. Pools were awesome. Again. I rate 4/5. Awesome staff! Kudos

nice couple getaway

Little misguided by our reservation that read1 king AND 2 full size beds. I think they meant 'OR'. Had to complain to get upgraded to a king bed room- as double bed just does not work for two tall people. King bed was definitely better than the double- which was hard mattress on top of being small. Food service was excellent and so was food. Lots of Vegetarian options too.

Ocean front?

I reserved Ocean front, premium club room, expecting to see the ocean and get fast service, great room!, after 3 hours waiting at the club lounge and at 4:30pm, we got room 160, our view was a brick wall, and we been located under the building main AC motor, all requests have been ignored. i love barcelo chain, been in many other, but this vacation was out of the ordinary. if you plan a visit, make sure you go when its not super crowded, and make sure to reserve the room type you paid for before you get there, in my case it was too late... hotel was over booked.

Just OK

Front desk staff service was lacking. Our ocean view room faced construction and when we asked to switch, the front desk staff wasn't very helpful--he said it was what we had paid for even though our room type was "superior ocean view." He could've offered us something in goodwill or at least been more gracious that our room was facing construction. The pools were too cold. The servers at the restaurants and by the pool worked very hard. Cabo was great. The resort itself was OK--I'd return to Cabo but stay elsewhere next time.

Good Getaway

Overall our experience was good considering we had other expectations in mind. We did not know that the Barcelo had actually moved a couple doors down from where it used to be about 4 years ago. We booked the Barcelo expecting to be at the same hotel we were at a few years ago. The former Barcelo was newer, the pools were bigger and the rooms were decorated nicer. The former Barcelo hotel is now the Hyatt Ziva. We did, however, enjoy the food and the attentiveness of the staff.

Barcelo All Inclusive

The only negative I have to say is that I traveled there with my daughter in law (who is Mexican) and the staff's treatment toward her was definitely less than professional.

Second experience

As a result of the hurricane, the hotel is under construction. The location of the hotel was perfect with beautiful natural surroundings especially the ocean and moutains. The rooms were spacious and very clean. However, there are some areas that were not as good as our previous stays at the Barcelo. The first was the food. It was not as good as we were used to. The other location had a better selection and quality of food. When going to the restaurant, the menus were cuisine themed, but, limited. Also, the buffets had the same things on it. Some of the pool side food was not properly cooked and had limited same day choices. Finally, the pool itself was freezing and not being used by the guests. The best part of the trip was the staff especially the pool side bar staff. These individuals couldn't do enough to make your experience an excellent one. They always had a smile on their faces and constantly checked to make sure that you had everything that you needed. Also, the bartenders made delicious drinks especially the frozen ones. I think that once the renovations have been completed and the hotel is up and running that they will get back to the quality that they were at before.
