With accommodations decorated in the purest Caribbean style, these cheerful rooms are comfortable, open, and all have a balcony or terrace overlooking verdant gardens or the azure sea. Enjoy access to international dining in sixteen restaurants including four distinct buffets, Mexican and Spanish cuisine, four beach restaurants, plus access to fourteen bars strategically located throughout the complex. You'll never be hungry because the Barcelo All-Inclusive program offers 24-hour availability of snacks, meals, and drinks.

Families can enjoy maximum freedom, choosing from among a wide range of activities for the whole tribe, including a gym, shopping, and the luxurious U-Spa. Qualified staff members organize entertaining activities for the smallest members of the family in the mini-club. Children are guided through games, competitions, drawing, handicrafts, movies, a mini-disco, mini-aerobics, and the brand-new U-Kids Spa.

By day, adults can join in a variety of sports, including tennis (day or night on floodlit courts), basketball, snorkeling, kayaking, windsurfing, and miniature golf. At night, enjoy the vibrant entertainment at the unique live shows and then dance the night away at Jaguar's nightclub.

Fantastic Spring Break
carlosrmora, Frisco, Texas

WE have been in many All inclusive. Barcelo was perfect for the price we paid. Kids and grown ups had a great experience. The only complaint was the last day, when a horde of college age spring-breakers were very noisy and disruptive. Barcelo staff managed the situation very well. The restaurants were fantastic, specially the sea food. Will come back for sure.

Amazing resort, best I've been to

This resort is absolutely huge! There is so much to see and do. The beach is phenomenal, equivalent to what I experienced in Dominican in Bavaro. From what I hear that is rare in Mexico. I've only been to one other resort in Mexico, the Princess resorts, and this one I found to be much better! The weather was perfect the week of March 2-9. It was just myself and my 16 year old daughter who is vegan, and myself, a bodybuilder and we had absolutely no complaints about the food. In fact, we both found it to be amazing. There are three buffets at your disposal if you stay anywhere but the Palace (They have one at the Palace but only Palace guests can go there). We didn't find the Colonial/Tropical buffet until the 4th day, but we both wish we had sooner. Those buffets are side by side and seemed to be a step up in variety. We love to walk and observe and each day we put over 15000 steps on the fitbit everyday and saw new things each day. I really can't say enough about this resort! My daughter is 16, but received an adult bracelet which was fine with me, she is very responsible. If your son or daughter is NOT, then you may wish to request a child bracelet at check in. The Jaguar night club is really fun, definitely something everyone should check out. You'll need an adult bracelet to enter. The shows are actually very entertaining. There are two theatres to check out, so if one is not what you're into, you can go to the other and for certain at least one will have something worth sitting down to watch. Also, be sure to check out the pool and beach at night, the lighting system is beautiful.

All inclusive and wonderful

All inclusive and wonderful. The most relaxed vacation I think I have ever had. The food, drinks and service were all outstanding and free. Special thanks to Dary Perez, Leticia Cruz and Ivan Uh Who gave outstanding service. My only complaint would be poor Wi-Fi in the beach front unit we were in and overpriced and poor quality wine in the specialty restaurants. what was most strange was that the wine was free in the buffets and bars and was of good quality. The food in the buffets was fresh, varied and excellent. The grounds are totally kept up. This is a Spanish company and they know how to do resorts right.

The resort is very nice. The beach and pools are big and spread out so it's not cramped. The check-in process was very slow though so plan on an hour at least for that. The service is good sometimes but other times not. The surf ride area is nice with slides and other fun things for kids.
