Decent view/poor service
Never again. Few restaurants which alternated day to day. Poor service by the reception and waiters at the alacarte. Practically had to beg for shampoo or conditioner or even drinking water. Dont rely on receception ever answering their phone. Just an antiquated hotel that needs some changes in every level. I have been to over six resorts and aside from the view from my room.. I would never come back again.
Great experience. Very relaxing. I would like to return in the future. The pool and beach were most impressive. The Resturant staff was very helpful. The bars were excellent. I have recommended the site to others
The best staff ever! Best value for an all-inclusive resort!
If you want excellent service I highly recommend the Barcelo. I read some of the reviews prior to arriving but decided to keep an open mind. People complain about the smallest things and I understand people have varying expectations. I had ZERO complaints about my stay here. The staff goes above and beyond and they made my first trip to Cabo a memorable one. I had a superior ocean view room which was large, clean and comfortable. It's was a standard hotel room, not fancy but spacious. Don't get me wrong, it's a beautiful property. What everyone said about the pools and availability of lounge chairs is true. The poolside wait staff was very good. They kept it clean and comfortable. The buffet food is adequate with lots of variety. Especially enjoyed the restaurant, Las Jimacas. The service and food were both great. We had two birthdays in our group and the staff made sure to acknowledge them. You can't beat the Barcelo for value, service, cleanliness and comfort. No, wifi isn't included and there is an extra charge to use it but if you have a smartphone do you really need it? I've traveled around the Caribbean, Cancun and Puerto Vallerta so I have many resorts to compare to the Barcelo. The service can have a significant impact on your stay. I can say without reservation that the Barcelo staff is the best I've seen. Thank you for making my first visit to Cabo a memorable one. I will definitely return.
Clean, comfortable, friendly. Kind of right in the middle of things, so if you need to get up early, be prepared to use earplugs or something. Very clean and comfortable. Right on the beach. Food was all-inclusive.
Beautiful Property, Excellent Staff
Not much more needs said. Beautiful property, excellent staff, delicious food, great ocean front restaurants and pools. I was extremely happy with my stay. The only minor gripe, and its minor, is that I upgraded to a room with an ocean view and the view was primarily blocked by palm trees. The other upgrades made it worth it though. The hotel is under some renovations, but it wasnt as big of a deal as others make it out to be. They're moving FAST with these projects too. Can't say enough good things about my experience at Barcelo.
