As I read other reviews, I do agree , the grounds are just beautiful, pools perfect..... This was my fourteeth year into Mexico, Ixtapa, Puerta Vallerta, Riveria Maya, Cancun, Cabo San Lucas...... We (family ages from 12 to 38) plus Gramma & Papa, agree on Cabo as our favorite Mexico vacation... We liked the Barcleo, but we felt the front... More

My spouse and I stayed at the Karmina Palace the last week of October. We had a junior suite, which overlooked the pools and had a partial ocean view. The room was very nice and spacious, but it did have a musty smell. The hot water was hot enough to scold if you weren’t careful. I asked about upgrading to... More

This was my first trip to Mexico and after the experience I am on my way back again. It was a package deal for 7 nights over Christmas. A little pricing but for the time of year not to bad. The overall experience was beyond expectations. The hotel property itself is above average and clean. The all inclusive resort provided... More

Amazing resort, amazing people, fun, relaxing, great food, excellent staff, beautiful resort, excellent tour staff (Mago!) well worth the money . . . and even the rates were exceptional! We loved it so much in February 2010 that we are returning in February 2011 with our adult children. So much for your money and I would recommend to anyone, anytime.

My family & I have been going to this resort for 9 years now. We thought about trying a different spot, but why mess with perfection. We know exactly what we are getting when we go to Karmina; paradise. We don't want to chance trying a new spot only to be disappointed for 2 weeks. It is a worry free,... More

We stayed here for 6 nights in August and unfortunately it rained alot. The only problem with that is that two of their signature restaurants cannot be used if it's raining too hard so you get transferred into a ballroom which has no atmosphere. Sitting over the cliffs in their main restaurant (great traditional Mexican) is really spectacular. Overall this... More

Staff was disrespectful and the so called "all inclusive" treatment was unsatisfactory. I will never stay at a Barcelo resort again. By far the worst all inclusive experience. Hotel staff actually categorized us by saying "you Canadians give us trouble." VERY disappointing. I wish I stayed at another resort and would never recommend this place to anybody.

This is a really nice resort. It seemed like they cater to all types of groups and are family friendly too. We didn't have any problems with kids being in the adult pool & there were plenty of places available to relax away from the kids if you want.
