    Breakfast in Bed!

    We love the room service for breakfast. Sherry? out waitress is phenomenal. Baileys and or champagne every morning. Plus fruit and pastries with our coffee. We sat on our veranda and watched a baby whale play in the bay every morning. The resort is very nice and the food is good.

    Awesome Resort!!!!

    We visited the Barcelo in May of 2019 and I cant tell you how pleased we were. We upgraded to Premium and stayed in the Grand Master Suite and it was absolutely fabulous. I had read a few reviews before we went that were on the negative side, however after the amazing week we had and the overall experience at the Barcelo, I must say that some people just like to complain! We loved it and we will be back next year. Same time too! This was a very slow season for PV and that part we loved the most! Take a water taxi to the island of Quimixto and go horseback riding with Alexandro! He was a great guide and captain! You wont be disappointed of you book at this resort! The sunsets and the beach are AMAZING!!!!!

    Great vacation

    This was my thirt time in Barcelo Puerto Vallarta resort and I will come back more. I loved my front ocean view room with nice terrace and sun beds. People was very friendly, helpful and I felt very welcome. I want to thank Adelina who comunicate with me by email, answered all my question and organized pick up and drop off service that I could easy find a taxi company and get to the resert. Food was delicious and I like a location of "LosArcos" grill restoran and snack by the beach with their amazing mariscos soup.

    Clean but needs updating

    The first impression is that the resort is very clean and updated. The furniture in the room needed updating and the sheets had holes. The food is really good. The security isn’t. There was a fight in the pool and security had no clue on how to handle it. It was a nice hotel but we won’t be back.
