Rooms were very nice and over all the complex was very clean. My biggest complaint was that all the pools were extremely cold. Would not return.

This was our first visit to Karmina Palace and overall was a pretty good experience. We have young children and I was a bit concerned about the height of the railings on our balcony, but certainly enjoyed the small wading pool on our deck! We thought the staff was excellent, very friendly and always helpful. The children really enjoyed the...

We just returned from a week-long stay at the Barcelo Karmina Palace and we had an absolutely wonderful time. There was a problem with our room upon check in and after a short time we were offered an upgraded room for our first night there and had to switch rooms after that but we were given a complimentary late check...

We stayed at the Karmina Palace a few years ago. I was never a big fan of Mexico, having gone to Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta and got sick both times. This was a big family vacation in which my brother and sister brought along our spouses, kids and our father. This was my first experience with an all-inclusive. I probably...

The Karmina Palace was absolutely beautiful. My family and I just spent a week there. It is a meticulously clean rseort. The staff are always cleaning the grounds to make sure it is top notch. Our room was gorgeous. It is quite spacious with a bathroom to die for. We had our own balcony with a view of the 17th...

We were at the resort over a big spring break week, so of course it was quite crowded. On a positive note, we were given exactly the room configurations we asked for, they had lovely views that we weren't expecting (we didn't pay extra for the ocean view), and the rooms were clean. The staff was friendly and generally spoke...

We just returned from a week long stay at Barcelo Karmina Palace and have mixed feelings about the resort. The resort grounds are are absolutely gorgeous. The rooms are very large and clean.

The resort is beautiful, very clean and the rooms are the best we've stayed in. The grounds are amazing, beautifully well kept but I did get tired of the stairs after a few days. (we like to sit on the beach and to sit in the quiet end you needed to always be going up and down stairs). They should...

Hey trip advisor members… Barcelo Premium Karmina Palace Manzanillo, Mexico… It was an awesome vacation! When we arrived there the people working at the front desk were super friendly, spoke really good English and were very efficient.

My sister and I stayed at Karmina Palace in February and we both thought it was one of the nicest resorts we have ever been to. I have travelled extensively and stayed at many different resorts in Mexico and Cuba but this was by far the nicest and highest quality. Food - Excellent. Huge variety. Great quality.

“We like higher rooms as the view seems nicer from up there. Don't spend the money for the hot tub suites as the tubs are not very private.”
