    3rd visit planned in March 2021 to bring our kids

    My husband and I stayed here two years in a row we loved it so much! The property is amazing! We stopped coming because seaweed was bad, but reviews seem to say beach now is clean! Is that true? We have a pool, and are coming for the beach and surfing! This year we are bringing out teenagers. We booked a premium level but how do we ensure seeing the ocean? We booked swim out... should we have asked for different? Want as close to ocean as possible! Also, has anyone gotten a COVID test here at Barcelo with documentation to return to US since Jan 26 new documentation requirement? Is hotel providing all that we need, other than affidavit? Still want to come in March! Any response much appreciated!

    second trip was even better!

    We loved this place enough, that we brought our 3 kids back for a second trip. Staff and facilities are amazing. There is so much to do, the kids were never bored. Food at all restaurants was amazing. This is not Cuban buffet food..... This is a great meal every time in Mexico. Will be back again once covid passes.

    Amazing vacation!! Exceptional service and attention to protecting from Covid.

    The staff was amazing. We were very impressed with the precautions they have in place to ensure a safe and clean environment to protect against Covid. The amenities were wonderful for our family with teenagers. We loved the free water sports. We found the optional water sports to be very reasonably priced. We tried parasailing, dolphin experience, surf & ride. Pefro Issay and Daniela Roxana at the Surf & Ride were great teachers at the surf experience. The spa is a MUST!! We highly recommend this resort and can't wait to go back!!
