    Great experience with family, many activities for people with different age ranges such as kids to adults. Entertaining shows, and great service. The hotel is a bit lacking with the food, and it would be better if there was a sign not allowing people to leave their stuff on the pool chairs without being there for hours. Besides that great experience.

    Nice place to vacation with family

    Barceló Ixtapa is a good place to stay if traveling with kids. Most resorts everywhere only allow 2 kids per room. Barceló has family suites that accommodate 6 people without breaking the bank. Although the rooms are outdated and need much needed remodeling, they are clean, and so are the facilities.
