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.

Old Outdated no upkeep

Arrived 7PM to a very hot room. Old furniture, never again at Barcelo. Buffet food was cold, tuff and tasteless. The hotel staff were polite but management thinks they are above the rest of us. On check in I explained that my daughter was in a wheelchair. Our airplane didn't leave till 7pm on check out. I would be happy to pay extra to stay in the room longer. The lady on duty said no problem. Check out day I get a call asking if I was checking out. I explained to Ernesto Chavez that on monday I explained to the lady at the check in and she said no problem. I told this guy I was willing to pay as I didn't want my daughter in a wheel chair for 6 hours before the plane. He said with an attitude it would be 350 pesos per hour. I said not a problem so we went about our day. Coming back to the room at 2:30 they locked us out. I went to the front desk and had them reopen the door and spoke to a very nasty lady saying she was the manager. Her name was Paola Baltazar (the name she gave me.) She said the the doors auto lock at 12 noon. I told her about paying extra and called her on her 12 noon story because we entered the room at !:30, left and at 2:30 it was locked. She became nasty when I brought up facts. I don't know how either one of these people got or keep there job, nasty, nasty, nasty. Ive stayed at Barcelo before and never came across nasty people like these two. Other than that the pool is dated but nice, the drinks around the pool were good. NEVER GO BACK TO THIS BARCELO.

Beautiful resort with best value in Manzanillo

Beach area needs improvement but overall had a fabulous experience at this beautiful resort. Food, staff, entertainment, and pools are excellent for the low rates. Loved our stay here and hope to return.

We stayed at the Barcelo Karmina for Xmas 2017 and Easter 2018. We returned because we had such a fantastic time over Christmas. The facility is beautiful, and great for kids. A special thanks to Zulema from the Barcy club. She is an excellent children’s facilitator. And to Jose Tarabay who provided excellent first aid to my daughter and who really runs a tight ship and makes you feel your children and the facility were well cared for. He still maintains a super friendly rapport with the kids and is an excellent liaison between the hotel and the guests. Spacious rooms, friendly staff and the ocean area is perfect for kids to learn to snorkel in as my daughter did. 5 stars all around and we will return.
