If you are interested in adults only atmosphere with more adult pool games and such this would not be the place, yet would be just wonderful for adults just wanting a beautiful vacation at a reasonable cost.

We arrived early at the hotel because that is what was offered by Apple. Our room was not available till 3:00 PM. We had to wait almost 6 hours looking for a place to eat and sit. The view from our room was behind a building. Limited view of the Oceon.

I stayed at Barcelo and it was wonderful. The staff was friendly and attentive. They apparently had a hurricane the week before hand and had some restaurants closed. It would have been nice to have been notified of this. We were supposed to have a beach front room, however due to the hurricane they were all booked.

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.

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!

One of the problems that we had was that we didn’t understand the dinner reservation policy. When we were there six years ago we were able to go to any dining room we wanted that was open any night without making reservations 24 hours in advance. That was not explain to us and check in and so we were confused and missed one dinner in the dining room that we would’ve liked to of eaten.

Barcelo Gran Faro was a pleasant surprise!

We purchased an all inclusive package with Travel Zoo and we stayed at Barcelo Gran Faro and we were wondering if there's a catch for such a great deal. The hotel was located on the beach, beautiful location and the rooms were very spacious. Free food throughout the day and the food was excellent. The selection of menu was different everyday and excellent quality of food and alcoholic beverages was also free. There's also entertainment and very good service.

We stayed there for my girlfriends 26th birthday and overall it was a great experience. Organizing tourist activities was extremely easy to do with the staff there. I spent a lot of time at the pool and spa which was extremely relaxing. Will definitely come back.

Expect better service at a Motel 8

If you're looking for a '5-star resort' look elsewhere - The service was nothing short of a nightmare. We went here for a friends wedding and the whole wedding party had a ton of issues that staff and management failed to address even after having brought up most of it with them and emailed them. Most requests were ignored including an email to the hotel Director. It was nearly impossible to get restaurant reservations, so we spent a lot of time eating at the buffet which was mediocre at best. What was worse was the service. It often took 20-30 mins for staff to take a drink order in restaurants, and your order often didn't show up, even after multiple requests. Most the bartenders didn't know how to make really basic drinks and the quality was poor. Most of our wedding party got sick at some point from food or water, with some even in the hospital. What was ironic was that the hotel stopped providing water bottles half-way through our stay and staff refused to give them out - so much for 'all-inclusive'? A safety hazard as well. At one point I requested an iron to the room so I could press my shirt - I had to call 8 times and go to front desk multiple times over two days before they delivered it... Another person in our party hadn't had their mini-bar stocked their whole stay, and when they requested it were told it wasn't possible although it was supposed to be restocked daily. While there were good moments, the hotel did not leave a good impression for most of us. It really seemed like staff and management didn't care in the slightest.

Just came back from a week at Barcelo Gran Faro. The hotel is good, staff work very hard to keep it clean. Beach was great. Drinks were cold. Food was not so great, sushi was the best. We couldn’t make reservations for any other restaurant as the VIP’s booked them up even though your supposed to book each morning at 9am. Overall the hotel is 4 star.
