Good value for the money, clean, scenic, nice pool setup with infinity pool to ocean view. Outdoor areas were alway very clean.

Don't like the way Apple schedules transfers by giving me a time to confirm departure for my return trip at a time not convenient for me. This is just to try an sell excursions. hotel scheduled pick up for me without issue. Food at the hotel was generally good for fish, pork and chicken items but beef dishes were spotty and often very tough.

Small, but wonderful resort

Really amazing resort! It was definitely the smallest resort I have ever been too, you could see everything from the rooms. However, this came in handy when we needed to run to our room if we forgot something! Overall, my husband, 5-year-old daughter and I were very happy with this resort. It had everything we find important: delicious food, excellent service, clean rooms, fun & entertaining shows every night, a pool bar with bartenders who were AMAZING and fast, beautiful view of sunsets/rises, etc. We felt safe leaving the resort, as many things are within walking distance, including Cabo Dolphins, a grocery store, a little strip of stores, restaurants and bars, a Fish Therapy place (where you put your feet in with the 'Doctor Fish' that eat the dead skin off, and also about a 20 min walk from downtown Cabo San Jose. Food quality was really amazing!

The hotel and grounds were well maintained. We were disappointed to get a room with two small beds instead of a king which we requested. The beach was difficult to walk and there was no way you could safely go into the water.

We usually go to Puerto Vallarta but wanted to go somewhere new and we were not disappointed. Very friendly staff, great facilities, surprisingly good food, great beach and very relaxing. We booked a whale watch and it was unbelievable and I think we will be coming back next year to do it all again. We felt we got a great bargain coming here!

The pools were very uncomfortably cold and the other infinity pool was closed 3 out of our 4 days that we were there. Apple representative was not there for stated hours for morning and afternoon. Had to ask our hotel check in desk to call for our return shuttle. Otherwise a great place and had a good time.

After Spending many hours reading reviews of different resorts in San Jose Del Cabo we decided to stay at the Barceló gran Faro. It exceeded our expectations for our price range. We took four children with age ranges from 25 to 18. We arrived on a Tuesday, and checked out on a Saturday. We stayed in 3 ocean view superior rooms 2410, 2412, and 2426. The balcony gave us a beautiful view of the ocean and pools. Each night we left the door open and enjoyed the crack of the waves from the ocen. Each room was clean, large and had great views of the ocean and swimming pools. The house keeping staff kept the fridge full of water, pop, and snacks. The grounds were clean, well groomed and beautiful. One of the reasons I selected this resort is because of the size. I wanted a smaller resort that did not require a lot of walking to get to the restaurants or beach. Check in time was not excessive. It always takes time to provide passports and documents. The all inclusive resort did not disappoint. We ate most of the time at the Albatross Buffet. We have very picky eaters, and the buffet offered a great variety of food. We loved the food! The options were endless. Each night provided a themed menu, and still had so many options to select. The service was excellent, especially the manager roger roger. He was always walking around to check on every detail. Our daughter celebrated her 18th birthday and they went out of their way to surprise her with a cake, balloons, candy and a birthday song. We enjoyed the Albatorss buffet so much, we only went to the Italian restaurant La Gondola. This requires a reservation but did not have any problem getting a reservation. The ola was closed for renovation. We enjoyed evening entertainment. The pools were amazing. We never had a problem getting a lounge chair. One of the pools is right on the beach. e

My boyfriend and I picked to go on a last minute Cabo vacation. While looking at hotels, our travel agent mentioned Barcelo, and after looking online at the reviews we decided to give it a try. We loved it! The hotel was beautiful and clean, the food was fresh and the restaurants were awesome. We upgraded to premium to have a better room, WiFi included, our own reception area with a bar with better liquor, and the room with the view was wonderful. We highly recommend this hotel, and we will definitely be coming back!

This place is amazing from start to finish. All of the food is exceptional. The grounds are always kept in tip top shape and the pools never felt dirty. Drinks were always cold and I have to recognize the staff for their spectacular efforts. Guillermo Lopez stands out as the BEST waiter in the pool area. He deserves to be recognized as one of the friendliest guys there and he made my day at the pool worry free. Speaking of pool, the entertainment guys are equally as awesome. They made the activities fun and their positive attitudes were infectious. Cabo overall was paradise and should I return I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

This resort and rooms were clean, and the food was fresh and tasty. It is not a big resort like the Maya ones, and it's a quick walk to the breakfast/lunch buffet. The nightly entertaining(shows, musical) was fine. The view is beautiful but the beach is not for swimming. There's no lifeguard on the beach. I lost a hat and sandals to the rough wave and water. The front desk was not as fast as I'd hoped but the time we came was not so busy so it's acceptable. This is a good place to stay if you like a relaxing, lazy time.

Excellent service w/ a great view

I stayed last weekend with my mom and i, and we had such a great experience ; the staff is very nice, they all make an effort to recognize you and make you feel welcome. Their bartender Alberto F. makes the best “tom collins“ in town, such a great guy and helpful when we asked about transportation to Cabo San Lucas ! Las Olas restaurant was being renovated, therefore it was closed , but its nice to know that they keep reinventing themselves. The location of the hotel is perfect for a getaway with no disturbing noise from the city. ** The only thing that’s a shame , is the extra charge for wifi if you are not at a premium level .
