My wife and I are in our early 30s and visited the Barcelo Ixtapa for a short vacation from May 22nd - 26th over Memorial Day weekend. Much to the agreement of most of the other reviews, this hotel met our expectations in every way. Our trip was all-inclusive through Apple Vacations - Chicago. We are very experienced travelers to...

We stayed at the Barcelo from April 26th to May 3rd, it was our first "All Inclusive" vacation, and we had an absolutely wonderful time. We would definitely go back, in fact, we wish we never had to leave. We were one of the first ones through customs at ZIH, and instead of taking the Air Canada Vacations bus with...

Barcelo Hotel Resorts are and excellent way of going on vacation. The Ixtapa Barcelo is nothing less than wonderful. It is very clean, and when I say clean I mean they temperature check the food, they check the pool water. They have monthly inspections of their rooms and laundry facilities. I even saw them examining the hands of their employees...

Unlike previous posters we found the room to be very clean and recently updated. The only problem with the room was the hot water faucet which did...

Stayed the week of March 29 - April 5/08. This is my 3rd trip to Mexico, and my 3rd all-inclusive. Have been to Cancun and Playa Del Carmen previously. I truly loved this area of Mexico. The sunsets are the most beautiful I have ever seen. The ocean is alot rougher than the Caribean side, but I actually enjoyed it...

We stayed at the Barcelo Ixtapa from April 5 -12. We have stayed at a number of all inclusives so we were expecting the usual so-so food and service.
