    Wish I stayed longer.

    Great service, great food, great beaches, friendly staff and awesome evening entertainment. Even solo, there’s always something to enjoy, your privacy and wish for solitude is respected and should you wish to engage with the staff, they’re always available polite and remarkably knowledgeable of foreign languages. I highly recommend Barcelo resorts.

    Surf Ride

    Amazing experience! Had so much fun. The instructors are great, always helping me when I needed it. Their names are Nestor and Alin. The service at the front of the ride is very good. Daniela, Barbara, and Isay do their job very well. Can’t wait to do this event next time!

    the perfect all-inclusive resort

    This resort is perfect. 5 resorts in one, it has multiple pools, activity areas, cafeterias, and more for you and your family to enjoy. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The rooms are clean and comfortable - including the beds. The cleaning crew brought us blankets and helped as we needed - always friendly. We did end up changing rooms because the rooms located close the the Maya Mall were too noisy for us. In addition to the cafeterias, we ate at 3 restaurants: Mexico Lindo, La Fuente, Marenostrum. They were all excellent. We really enjoyed the gym (it rained a lot while we were there). A beautiful workout area and great classes. We also enjoyed playing ping pong and all the various pools. Due to rain we didn't get to try everything we wanted but there are many more things like snorkeling, sailing, paddle boards etc. At the moment, only two of the outdoor eating/pool bar areas are open. I expect that will change as travel increases. The resort was working hard to mitigate the large influx of seaweed affecting the entire coast. You can arrange for the required US covid test with the concierge (you arrange eating at the restaurants with them as well). The test is administered right on the property with results given the same day. Very easy. As a heads up, check-in takes forever. Be prepared. Overall this is a great place for both families and couples. We highly recommend!

    Just checked in hope it gets better

    Just checked in sort of, arrived with wife and 2 young kids. We had to wake up at 3am to catch a flight. The hotel is big but seems very nice and clean. Check in was interesting. Took about half an hour for the front desk attendant to advise us to hang out for 5 hours with two young and tired kids for our room to be ready. There is no wiggle room here and customer is never right. When my wife politely asked if we could check a little early if the room is ready he rolled his eyes. The suggestion was to change in the public toilet and use the pool. Will be reviewing as the trip goes on….
