    Over all stay was ok. Expected some different outcome from WiFi service, cable tv limitations no smoking restrictions

    Receptions apparently had no access to my request. Traveling with 18 people and trying to get their rooms close enough. Also my daughter arrived later and my husband left earlier. Transaction did not go smoothly

    Barcelo Palce

    Beautiful garden, swimming pools and the beach. Rooms require small refreshment /repairs. Commercial area is too big with not nice Staff. Paid internet is a negative surprise. Part of Staff in shops and restaurants has a terrible attitude. More entertainment for kids would be nice. Catamaran is interesting, number could be increased.

    Not as good as it seems!

    BEWARE!! All inclusive is very misleading. When you get there you have to pay for the waterpark, the pool table and after 6pm mini golf. Usually in an all inclusive these activities are included. Room was average. Housekeeping is difficult.... took 30 minutes to get towels and they forgot the washcloths and told me another 20 minutes for that. Beaches and pool are very nice and the daytime activities are great. Not a lot to do at night unless you pay for things.

I highly recommended this resort, we loved it

    Ok not great

    The resort and beach is beautiful. I would give 5 stars for cleanliness. However... Be prepared to wait to check-in when you arrive. We waited 45 minutes. There are countless employees at the resort but with a few exceptions (e.g. some in the nighttime restaurants hoping for tips) they are unfriendly and do not smile or try to interact with the guests. There is a general lack of joy around the place. The food was very disappointing, both buffets and sit-down dinners. The buffet options are extensive, but most of the food was not very appealing. Fewer but better and higher quality options would have been better. It was difficult to get reservations at desirable times in the restaurants for dinner. It would have been nice to sit down once at the start of the vacation and make all the reservations, but it was difficult. We enjoyed our family/friends beach time but we won't be going back to this resort.
