Hotel Barcelo karmina palace
Apr 16 2013
everything was 1st rate. The staff was wonderful and one particular waiter Joel Vivanco - from the restaurant grill, really went out of his way to help and made me confortable. Hen was like a guardian angel and I wish you would mention this to the management of the hotel.

Noisy during Easter weeks
May 04 2011
Absolutely wonderful facility and wonderful people taking care of ("pampering") us. We ate well, drank quality booze, had wonderful service, loved our room, and had no complaints except for one irritant - the loud Public Address system. The announcements of water aerobic classes, Samba classes, kayaking, etc plus the loud music and instructions for classes, the calling of bingo games, etc. intruded on conversations and meals. My wife talked to several staff members and the tour representative and learned that it is during periods when they are busy, especially with Mexican guests, that this occurs. The week before and after Easter are especially busy and many Mexican families are there. We observed that, on the last day of our stay, there were only a few, brief announcements and the music was much more subdued. If you are going for a quiet vacation, do not go during very busy holiday times. We would definitely return but would pick different dates.

Will be excellent if it had accessible food at the pool

The rooms are amazing, I have stayed at 2 other 4 diamond hotels and this had the best rooms for sure. The lobby is breathtaking, downside, had to fight for place to seat and the snack bar was very popular and only one or two cooks, plus you can't take any food out of certain area, so you have to abandon your towels and stuff in order to get food, if you want better food you need to change from your bathing suit and the menu has prices even though is free, which was confusing at first. I've stayed at the Melia in PTO vallarta and loved their snack bar, if karmina had something similar will be amazing

I spent 5 days in December 2018 with a splendid weather, the hotel is very large, clean, the staff is very friendly. The food is good, the drinks are well prepared in the bars. The rooms are very large, type suit but a little dated, mainly the bathrooms, very large but old. The Hotel does not have Wi Fi service, which is inconvenient. Our stay was pleasant thanks to the staff that gave us a very good impression.

Above Average All-Inclusive

A four hour drive from Chapala and worth it. Three specialty restaurants - Mexican, Italian and Japanese. Five bars. We booked a room in the Premium section and are glad we did. Large suites including two televisions, bath room includes a tub and separate shower. Limited underground parking. Adjacent to Las Hadas golf course. Friendly, helpful staff especially in the Premium check in area. Pools were busy. Enjoyed the adult pools. Evening entertainment was loud but ended around 9:45.

Piece of Paradise!

Warm welcome, painless and efficient checkin. The room was very spacious and just like the photos show on the website. Loved the kingsized bed and the balcony overlooking the gardens with the ocean in the distance. Food and service was exemplary by all staff. Enjoyed the a la cartes and the buffet. The staff out did themselves with a fabulous meal and entertainment on Mexican Independence Day. Probably the most beautiful location for a disco that we have ever seen. Overlooking the ocean, live band with the entertainers getting everyone up and dancing. Doesn't get any better than that! Morning spent out on the gorgeous ocean with Jimmy and Julio.The highlight would have to be catching 2 Mahi Mahi/Dorados. The chef did an amazing job of preparing dinner for the 6 of us.But Jimmy made a very tasty ceviche on the boat. Even serenaded us with his guitar. The Barcelo beach is on a secluded bay. Great snorkelling. Nice to not have to worry about waves or red flags. Everyday the water is perfect in the bay. Weather was perfect! Great relaxing holiday! Kudos to all the staff. We will return.

The hotel is amazing. Staff all around were very accomodating. The kids club staff went above and beyond to entertain my son, he is already planning a trip for next year. I have a severe food allegry and can not say enough kinds things about the chef and the captain of waiters who did everything possible to avoid any cross contamination and specially prepared every single one of my meals.
