Coates Review of Barcelo
MATTHEW C.
Feb 14 2019
Overall, our experience was excellent. The services were great, we loved our room. Restaurant services were pretty good. Our first night we did the mexican restaurant and the service was great but the food quality was not good and slow service. Then when we got our food it was cold. Overall the rest was adequate food. We enjoyed our stay very much.

HOT WATER
SHERYL K.
Feb 05 2019
Our only real complaint was we upgraded once we got there to a room that faced directly to the ocean. Sadly we have NO hot water for 4 out of the 5 days. We kept asking the concierge service about and they would send someone and nothing would change. Cold showers are awful any day but unacceptable when you are on vacation in a upgraded room. Out of curiosity on the 4th day we left the water running to just see if it would ever turn hot........it did after 15 minutes but who would ever think of that. Sadly we had one day with hot showers and when we checked out I spoke with a manager asking that out $130 upgrade charge be refunded. The manager refused to refund the charge but offered a free upgrade if we ever returned. I told him that was unacceptable and no one should have to leave water running for 15 minutes to get hot water, at best if someone had told us that we would have to allow the water to run for 15 minutes we would have know how to resolve the issue.

We had a great time at the Barcelo. The beach was wide open and very peaceful. My husband even swam in the water on most days. The staff was attentive and friendly. The resort was very clean. Kid friendly. We would stay here again.

The room was very clean! Had great maid service everyday. The grounds were very well kept. Food is average. One of the restaraunts appeared to be understaffed, as one time we had to ask for water several times before we received it. Our check in person did not understand English very well. I did report that the fridge in our room was not working, and they never did fix it. However, we did have a toilet issue and they did fix that within minutes. The resort is an older crowd. Not too loud in the evenings. The evening entertainment could of been better. Overall I would rate it a low 5.

Renovation of Bathrooms
VATSALA R.
Jan 08 2019
Bathropoms are in need of a make-over. Room had no bath tub. Runnung water in shower was WARM not hot. And Cabo was cold in December!! Check n was slow. Ckeck out was to be at 11 am but the system locked us out at 10:30 am. Took two trips to front desk to re-open rooms. Food was mediocre. The two restaurants ( Italian and Mexican) were less than ordinary. They had np music or tasty menu items. Wont recommend making Reservations for those 2 Restaurants. But the worst was the Bathrooms. Barcelo, please give baths a new look for the 21st Century!!

We arrived at the hotel and it was our honeymoon, as we were checking in we were told they did not have a room for us at the time they were trying to get one ready. Once we receive the keys to the room we unpacked our clothes went to take a shower and there was no water in the shower. We were told there were no more rooms. Once again it’s our honeymoon made these reservations three months in advance. Ate many trips and phone calls to the VIP desk, as VIP meant nothing here at this hotel, we were finally give in a room and were able to shower. The next morning we go to shower to start our day and there’s no hot water this continues on through that night until I find the right manager apparently that fix this problem. The lack of care and the attitude at the at the VIP desk was unbelievable. Other than this problem on our honeymoon the hotel Staff were great the maid service was great the restaurant staff was great the pool staff was great the bar staff was great. I just found it hard to believe that we notify them and Apple three months in advance bought our tickets and they were notified that it was our honeymoon and this is how we were treated. I know we will never stay at this motel again when traveling to Cabo and may not use Apple either.

Very Nice Stay
Tasmandevil, Virginia
Sun Feb 17 12:20:38 EST 2019
Yes, there are more luxurious stays and yes - it's a way from San Lucas, however it was a very relaxing 5 nights. Beautiful views. San Jose is much more quiet and reserved than San Lucas, which is really quite over rated, over crowded and not as clean. About a 20 minute walk away. Sadly they do not offer shuttle services to San Lucas. They told us where the local bus was and for less than $3 dollars we enjoyed a leisure trip into town. Easy on, easy off. Much cheaper and not much slower than the $40 taxi ride. We ate several times here and the breakfast was certainly very good - very good omelet guy!, plenty to choose from, all hot and delicious. For some reason, the Mexican ala carte restaurant was closed for our entire stay - but the Italian was open....?? The buffet dinners we had though were very good. I've seen some reviews complaining about the food - but then, some expect Black Diamonds from a 3-5 star place, don't they? It is DEFINITELY very good for the price range! We were fortunate enough to have as our camarista (maid) Senora Isabel (fifth floor, building 3). My gosh - she could NOT have made us feel more welcome nor taken care of! Just a wonderfully kind lady. It's staff like this that makes and breaks a place - and I DO HOPE if anyone down there is reading this they pass along a very gracious MUCHAS GRACIAS!

Fantastic all-inclusive vacation

We visited the Barcelo from Jan. 29 to Feb. 9th. Loved our room on the main level opening up to the pools and the gardens and it was kept immaculate. Two double beds, a small table with two chairs, an easy chair, and a patio with two chairs and a small table more than met our needs. Huge, easily accessible bathroom. The grounds were absolutely immaculate and quite lovely. I can't say enough about the staff: friendly, professional, and always eager to assist us in any way possible. We tried two of the three a la carte restaurants and they were terrific. There was always a huge selection at the buffets (breakfast/lunch/dinner), something to tempt everyone. We plan on going back again and, to me, that's high praise. I'm almost afraid to recommend the Barcelo highly (but I will!) ... it might get tougher for us to get the reservations we'd like next time!!!

First time staying at the resort

My husband and I just got back from a week long vacation and had a great time. The food was delicious and the service was great. The grounds are very well maintained and the rooms were very clean. We will definitely be back to this resort. I would highly recommend.

We celebrated our anniversaries and Valentines Day with 2 other couples and truly enjoyed a very relaxing and fun filled vacation. All drinks and food were included and we enjoyed the upscale premier lounge as well as all of the different venues for food, drink, pools and beaching it. We took a number of the Cabo Adventure trips and liked renting the 50 ft luxury yacht the best. This was a no kids trip and we tried almost all of the restaurants, bars and entertainment that were offered. We all felt we got our monies worth and the perfect weather helped. Only negative was the elevators for the 6 story main building were constantly breaking down.

Great Vacation
