This is the second time we had stayed at this hotel. The last time was Nov. 2001. We upgraded to Premium so could go to the specialty resturants as many times as we wanted. These restaurants were great but there were only three and we didn't go to the Japanese one because we don't like raw fish. The owners welcome...

I like my room because you can see the ocean and the pool from there. I also liked the food because it's really good. I also liked riding on the banana it was a fun experience. If I could come here again I would.

Barcelo hotel hosts a Mexican Fiesta dinner theater. It's an all you can eat buffet (ten drinks) with Mariachi bands and Flamenco dancers. It's a little-known attraction well worth the money. Two hours of entertainment.

Recently stayed for the Easter holidays at the Ixtapa Barcelo, being an all inclusive you would not think people would go out to restaurants and pay to eat! Well we did plenty of times that is how bad the buffets were. Very little choice and the food was always cold, even though we were there at the opening of buffet....

This was a stunning resort, It's location it premium as the town is right out the front door! Its not my particular type of resort as it gives you the feeling of being in downtown Toronto or New York City. The food was stellar, the staff helpful and friendly, the grounds immaculate!

The Barceló is a medium sized resort, moderately priced, perfect for a family vacation. Conveniently located within walking distance from local markets and restaurants, we always felt safe. Short cab ride from the town of Zihuatanejo where there are more markets, restaurants & excursions such as fishing trips, snorkeling, sailing, etc.. The Barceló staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The...
