The staff at the pool bar are extremely friendly and helpful. Edgar was a great bartender, he went above and beyond what was expected. He always had a smile on his face and was very outgoing. Thanks Edgar the the fun week at the pool bar.

My experience at Barcelo PV was beyond incredible!

We visited every part of PV and the second we arrived at Barcelo we knew this was location...

The welcome at the airport got it all kicked off. Our room, the service, the food, the drinks were all fantastic. The only thing we were not impressed with was the Italian restaurant on the property. My calzone was burned on the ends and doughy in the middle. Other than that, we enjoyed the pools, night shows, massages, beach (yes,...

We stayed at the Barcelo in December right before the Christmas rush. Having stayed at some really nice all-inclusives before, we had high expectations. Unfortunately, the Barcelo did not live up to those expectations. It was a purely average resort. The good: the hammocks near the pool were nice (our baby was able to get some nice naps in them--with...
