Barceló is always an excellent hotel destination. This was my first time at Barceló in Cabo San Lucas. I was more than impressed with the food and food service. The quality and variety was the best of all of the places in the Barcelo chain. Don McKenna

Just thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Barceló in San Jose del Cabo. The property is lovely, the people are great and the weather was perfect. Since it's now off-season, really enjoyed the quiet and laid-back atmosphere. The Mexican Heritage Show was exceptional.
