    Barcelo Karmina never disappoints

    Love the location, I appreciate all the improvements they have donde. It is the second time we get the Master Suite with a pool and it's incredible. This time we had a view to the pools and the beach and the room was way better. You have a nice terrace with thow lounge chairs and you are next to the pool on your balcony. This room is a definte must if you are traveling with teenagers. They enjoy their own room privacy as well as you do.

    Avoid it in high season

    We stayed here 4 times before. None of them were during high season. Hotel guest were rude. There is people playing loud Mexican music using Bluetooth speakers. We kindly as a man to shut his music off and he raised the volume. We looked for hotel staff and nobody was around . Later we discovered that he was not a guest, he was a day pass user of the hotel. No carpets. We were unlucky enough to have a room right beneath of the loudest and annoying kids. They were running and yelling at 2 am. Swimming pools were dirty. They had a greyish tone. The beach had also problems. There is a boat that arrived to the private beach. As soon as it arrives they throw stinky waste into the water. Horrible smell. Staff is overwhelmed by the amount of people.

    Excellent time, Sad no free WIFI

    Best food from any all inclusive resort, Sad that Barcelo always charges for WIFI access, the only remaining hotel chain in the world that does this, otherwise fabulous experience. Many pools, and the all included beverage list is fabulous, generous with drink alcohol content.

    great looking place but has bad food

    My family and I ate our first night at the hotel in the italian restaurant capri, we then spent that night and the next morning sick. we had food poisoning symptoms lasting until the end of the next day. We tried calling reception to see if there was any services that could help us, however all we were told was that there was a shop that had some medicine.

    Seem to be the best, but was not...

    I reserved with a promo of 2 free kids on my stay, when I checked in to the hotel they told me it was not stated on reservation and they bill for my kids without an option for my 4 and 5 years old kids. Our special dinner only worth the place, we did not received any attendance until we told 3 different waiters; we left without having desert. At restaurant, even with open tables they offer you to move to other restarutants or tables away from buffet, when you have to take care of 2 kids you want to have them at a quick view, not away causing a possible problem. In our room, we always hear upper room water flush. Pools were good and most of the staff was kind, even if they were working under preasure.
