We were at the resort from Feb 12-17, and our first time here. From the time we arrived at the hotel, we were awe-struck. The architecture was described perfectly in everything we read about it. Because we were in a large group from Saskatoon, there was 3 buses transporting the group, and we were fortunate enough to get in the...

Our 2 weeks at the Barcelo Karmina were amazing. The hotel was clean, lots of pools good for all ages, no shortage of loungers, rooms were large, bathroom was huge. We had a great view of the 17th hole and the ocean, it was very quiet. The staff were very friendly and helpful, most spoke some english and went out...

I really cannot find much to complain about, other than maybe a larger beach, without having to cross the Lagoon to go to the one on the other side, perfect place to snorkel, lots of fish too see even in the shallow water. You get 3 Ala Carte's per week, you have to go to Lobby at 10 am to...

We brought a very large group to Barcelo Karmina Palace in Feb 2013. Manzanillo is our fave spot in Mexico and was a good place to bring family members that were slightly apprehensive about traveling to that country. The hotel is stunning and well laid out- not too big. We had one of the master suites with the small corner...

Firstly I must say, our flight was delayed in Saskatoon and we lost a vacation day due to a problem with the plane. We had to spend the night in Saskatoon while they flew in another part for the plane. Not a good way to start a trip and it seemed to cloud the judgement of alot of people. My...

The hotel was very full,i had to wait in line for check-in. The food quality was poor. The furniture of the room was old and didnt look clean. Specially the sleeping couch where i wanted my girl to sleep in. Brisas hotel (las hadas) is so much better.

We were at the Barcelo Karmina Palace January 25 - February 1 and our family (2 adults, 2 kids) enjoyed the whole trip. We arrived on a Friday evening and were given a room that was not at all what we were expecting. We went back to the front desk, and even though the hotel was very full, the clerk...

I stayed at the Barceló Karmina Palace resort from the 1st to the 3rd February 2013, 3 nights. The hotel interior and exterior grounds and pools were well maintained but I believe that the hotel is suffering from poor management in key areas. Housekeeping: The bedrooms are not being kept up to date, we reported a shower door that would...
