Great getaway with great service!

Relax by the pool or on the beach, eat food all day or just have one meal, have cocktail after cocktail at the pool or just one glass of wine, participate in all the fun daily activities, or just people watch - your choice! Jorge and Horacio will take care of you poolside - amazing service! All employees were super friendly and they all seemed to enjoy their jobs! We came to this all inclusive resort in October and couldn’t have asked for more perfect 80 degree weather. Wasn’t too crowded either. Amazing experience!

My hubby and I stayed at the Barcelo Gran Faro the week of September 9th for our honeymoon and it was perfect! The weather was beautiful. The food was amazing and the staff work so hard at taking care of your every need! We always made sure we tipped they work so hard at this resort. We loved that it was a smaller resort . The resort is immaculate and well maintained. We had a premium room we loved that we had free WiFi and we never had any problems with our room being stocked with supplies. We had a spa day and it was amazing ! The ladies really made us feel wonderful, so relaxed we ordered room service! We were not able to get in the ocean but didn’t mind walking along the sea of Cortez to collect beautiful shells and sea glass! The pools were nice we enjoyed all of them and was well taken care of with drinks . We went on an excursion we booked through Cabo Adventures to see the Arch and it was amazing! We honestly could not ask for anything more......great staff, beautiful resort , great food and drinks ! We will be back 😄

Nice rooms

Just returned from visiting Los Cabos, this property had a few needed improvements to gain a higher rate from me. First the staff, 95% need to be reminded their in the service industry and should greet guests a simple good morning or Buenos Dias was only said once during my stay. Most employees looked unhappy to be working there. At the buffet for breakfast or lunch good luck getting any service in regards to a cup of coffee or beverage - I had to go find a coffee urn or go up to bar for my drinks when other tables were being served. It was like I was invisible, and I did tip but the following day same service. Secondly we had the preferred rooms( reccomend ) , which were above a bar and yes sleep was hard to accomplish as the beat of the music playing, screaming and chanting going on traveled all the way up to the top floor . Thirdly the pool bar needs more help, but if you sat at the bar you were waited on well, poolside service was very sparse and forget about getting any service beachside. Food overall was ok, needed improvements salad bar.

Always great

second time here and always great. Luis is fantastic and very helpful. My preference would be to play more latino music at the pool but this is only my preference, this has nothing to do with the excellent rating of this place

Great location on Beach.. just missing a few things

Stayed here in September for my 30th Birthday with my husband. Check-in was kind of hectic but things got squared away pretty quickly. Our flight had us arrive late so we missed the deadline for signing up for dinners that required a reservation; however we explained the situation and that it was my birthday so they made room for us. Funny, because when we arrived to dinner there was only us and maybe 3 other couples there! The resort itself is nicely situated on the beach. Because of the hurricane Florence, the waves were really high and rough so we opted to not get in the water but the pools were fine. Nice and warm but still refreshing. The swim up bar was the main bar open during thr day and you could tell. Sometimes getting service was a hassle and you had to wait quite a bit to get a drink. I would suggest opening another bar or having more staff at hand- especially on the weekend when more tourists arrive. Towels are ample and the drinks are good- if you tip well you will likely get premium alcohol versus the cheap stuff. The restaurants were good- with the the italian being the best we had there. There arent a ton of restaurants- just your usal italian, seafood, sushi and mexican. Buffets were also good and included a pasta bar, meat bar and various other foods. There are some activities during the day and also at night. Our room was on the 5 floor and thankfully because a storm came over night and those on the bottom floor had water come into their rooms as the hallways are open. Our balcony had a little water but not alot. The rooms are okay. Nothing fancy but doable. Our trip was just for R&R and we did just that- so if you are looking for that this is the place. If you are looking for tons of activities and more robust restaurants to chose from I would say this isnt the place for that.
