    Love It!

    We've been to Cabo 8 times in the last 4 years and have stayed at Barcelo Gran Faro 4 of those! We love it! The staff is helpful, friendly and as far as I'm concerned go out of their way to help. The choice of food is good for a 3 or 4 night stay and the drinks are always flowing.

    Not my kind of place

    Our airline offered us a bump and put us up in the Barcelo Gran Faro for one night (thankfully not more)..... This was after 5 nights at the Hilton Los Cabos Golf and Beach Resort (❤️). The room was outdated, smelled very musty and weird.....mold in shower....I should have documented with photos but couldn’t bring myself to do it. The food was sub par....seafood restaurant was basic and bland. Also tried a quick bite at the Mexican buffet, also basic and bland. Breakfast this morning had a large variety but it just wasn’t the quality I would choose. Again, we didn’t choose this resort, American Airlines chose it for I’m not even aware of the price point. I just wouldn’t stay here ever ... based on the weird smell of the room and the moldy bathroom.

    Not all the way 5 star

    We appreciate the quiet as compared to Cabo San Lucas, and we stayed here since it came highly recommended. The food was average which was a disappointment. The drinks were better in other resorts we’ve visited in Mexico. We arrived with no towels and Everyday we came back to our room with no towels. The AC unit was broken on our room and made a loud rattling noise 24/7...hard to sleep with that. The entertainment was just ok. People were nice, but I definitely saw that if we didn’t tip during dinner, the next evening came with less service. We expected 5 star...this is average. Probably wont return.

    Outstanding service

    The staff here never missed an opportunity to delight us. We booked the Premier Package, which was an excellent upgrade. Access to the Premium Lounge (and it's cold water & beer) was invaluable in August, and the upgraded amenities in the room were much appreciated. The staff here, as I said, worked incredibly hard to keep everything clean, safe and extremely pleasant the whole week. We cannot wait for our next trip to Barcelo Gran Faro!
