Arrive march 2nd 2017 and stayed until March 16th. Really liked the location of this property as it was directly on the beach and was only a block away from great little bars and restaurants. I would say that this hotel was probably the cleanest hotel we have ever stayed at. Everything was spotless. I read previously on another review...

-This was our very first trip to Ixtapa, and our family of 4 stayed at Barcelo March 12-19. We had a family deluxe suite in the 4 story suite-only building. Our view of the ocean was fabulous and the ocean lulled us to sleep every night through closed windows and sliding door. Taking an evening jacuzzi on our balcony under...

Location of the Barceló is fantastic, right on the beach with shops, bars and restaurants within a very short walking distance. Every night we would go for a walk through shops and restaurants, its very safe area so you don't to worry about anything, its reasonably prices for a resort area. If you want to but souvenirs your better off...

Last year I was blown away by this hotel. This year it was sadly lacking. The food was still OK. We had to stay in a room facing the parking lot for 4 days before we could get the room facing the beach. 48 hours without AC. Short staffed around the pool so getting a drink around the pool was...

This was our second stay. We stayed in the family suites which were great, we stayed on the ground floor. They had us on the 3rd floor, which had beautiful views and was awesome, however, there are no elevators in that particular building.(My mother-in-law can't do all those stairs) With that said, they were very accommodating. Our bartenders & housekeepers...

Recently returned from a week's stay February 25 through March 4, 2017 and we had a wonderful experience. The hotel is immaculate, the service was impeccable. We had an ocean view room on the sixth floor. The room was fine, the bathroom is small as was the balconey, but more than sufficient. Check in was smooth and quick. Our luggage...
