Have been to this Hotel many times before. This time management thought that letting 120 18 years olds celebrate their graduation for 3 days at their Hotel was a good thing. There were no programs to keep the young men and women busy, so all they had to do was drink in the pool bar, get sick in the pool...

Old and poorly taken care of hotel, bad food, very slow and poor service, ridiculous rules (can not eat by the pool), and old rooms. We managed to have a good time and adapt due to being a close group of friends, but we would never go back nor would we recommend this hotel.

We arrived at the Barcelo on Nov. 13. We recieved the ocean view room we had requested in our reservation. The view was the best thing about the room. The room was small but clean and the AC worked. The small fridge did not. The maid service was good, and the room did the job. The food selections on the...

We spent Xmas 2009 at Barcelo in Ixtapa. I had sworn off Mexico, but we needed a last minute trip. I was so wrong, we had the best time ever. Ixtapa itself is small, safe and very friendly. We left our hotel 3 nights as a family with a 6 month old baby and toured around. We had lovely meals...

First let me start by saying that our stay was December 2008 during the Xmas holiday. The computer did not give me "December 2008" as a date option. I did not know about Trip Advisor back then and in reading reviews in preparation for this year's trip, I thought I would write one now. This was a last minute deal...

As previously reviewed, this is an old hotel. Not the worst place, but certainly not the four stars our travel agent represented. Rooms The rooms were OK, nothing to write home about. The bath tub has aged beyond neccessary, and needs to be updated/replaced. The bed was comfortable, and the room was quiet. We upgraded to Club Premium, so we...
