We've stayed at other All-Inclusive resorts, including other Barcelo's, and I can tell you that this is a pretty average resort. The property itself is very nice and well maintained, however the staff and food service definitely needs some upgrading and training. I booked 3 rooms (1- OF Suite & 2-OF Junior Suite) for a week and upon arrival were...

We had a great time. Traveled with 2 adults, three kids (7,4,1). Very kid friendly with so much to do. We stayed in the family rooms (two bedrooms with bathroom in middle), so nice to have a separate space. Our kids loved the water parks and pools. Most employees are so friendly and do their best to speak English with...

Pool was great and plenty of room, people did get up early and save chairs but there are plenty to go around if you sleep in. Beach was beautiful...

We stayed here last October and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We had a beautiful room on the beach however a brick wall was in between us and the sand so we really had no view. It's a very open plan bedroom which may not be great if it's your first holiday together! It was very clean and was cleaned...

I have read some reviews upon my return, and am a bit surprised at the negative reviews. We booked off Hotwire and because there are no refunds, it makes little sense to pre worry about other peoples complaints before I get there. Most of the negative reviews were from people who only have 1 review on here so take that...

My son and I travelled during Spring Break with a group of 10 families from his high school. In spite of a rocky start (there was great difficulty finding our reservation due to a misspelling of our last name and the use of my son’s middle name to hold the room), the front desk staff was courteous and gracious, upgrading...

Beautiful resort, very large , if your room overlooks the golf course ,you will hav a bit of a hike to the pool and buffet area( 8min walk). Great resort for families , lots for kids to do. The food was fantastic and a great variety to choose from. Found it hard to communicate to workers outside the lobby area...
