Has potential

Overall this was an inexpensive and good resort, however we had a number of complaints starting day 1. 1. The restaurants are actually very good and the food is excellent. As for the service, the staff are amazing and work sooo hard. The problem is that the management grossly under-staffs, which means that your server is also your host, bartender, and busser, and likely has half or the entire restaurant; essentially they leave half the tables empty, because it would be impossible to seat more. 2. Making reservations for restaurants is a nightmare. They only open one week at a time, and it opens on Sunday at 9am, so if you want to make reservations, you have to wait in line with the rest of the resort at that time. Also they only allow you to make reservations between 9 and 3, so if you have any excursions off the resort on Sunday or Monday, you can forget about the restaurants. I will say, however, the buffets are very good as a second option. 3. The resort does not prevent people from placing towels on pool chairs to reserve them without being present. Essentially, after 6:30 am, all chairs will be taken without a single person at the pool. All that the resort needs to do is place signage to prevent this. 4. The rooms need to be drastically updated. The lighting is very poor, the fixtures and furniture are old, and the bathrooms need a lot of work. The pros: 1. Amazing staff. So friendly, helpful, and hardworking. 2. The drinks are strong... be careful on your first day. 3. The food at the restaurants and buffets is very good. 4. The water is safe to drink, although we stuck to bottled water most of the time (which by the was is also what they use at the tables, in the pitchers) 5. The pools are nice, and good size.

Barcelo

We had a very enjoyable trip back to Barcelo. The resort was in great shape. Weather was warm until the last two days. But still better than being at home. The beach was amazing.

Good hotel for price paid

We stayed at the Barcelo 2/7-2/14. We had the Premium upgrade. Check in process was seamless. We were taken up to our room quickly. They could not accommodate our king size bed request so we got 2 doubles and the 2 cribs we requested. I thought the kids club would be accessible to our kids however I found out that we would have to leave the kids there with the babysitter. We were not comfortable doing that so the kids were with us the whole time at the big pools. The beach is nice but way too rough for swimming especially with little ones. I think the food was great. We went to the seafood restaurant and the Italian. Could not do the sushi one with kids. Food was overall great and the staff were nice too. We tipped almost every time spending about $150 the whole week. I would forget the restaurants as the wait was very long for the food and I didn't think the food differed much from the buffet. The buffet had so many options readily available that it defeated the purpose to go to the restaurant and waste time. Overall the food was great, fresh and the desserts were amazing! I'm just a bit dissapointed that we couldn't use the kids club. Our kids are 1.5 and 3.5 so it would've been nice. I would overall recommend this resort for young adults, older couples or coupled with older kids (10 and up).

Awesome Resort!

This is a must stay if you're visiting this part of Mexico. Cabo is gorgeous. Every single member of the staff is extremely nice! The rooms are big and clean. Be sure to up upgrade to a Gold wristband as it give you access to the premium bar, free in room wifi, and 24 hour room service. They also have a cool sky bar with the best bartender (Orlando). I would definitely go back there.

What's to Love

It's all-inclusive, all-fam-bam-friendly and all-Caboliscious.

Private balconies that have spectacular views of the dreamy blue Sea of Cortez.

The Deep Blue Spa. Hydrotherapy and marine-based treatments. Meltaliscious.

The signature cocktail menu - it's creative and crafty and we love it.

From the front desk to the bartenders, the customer service is sunsational.

 

What We'd Change

There's not a lot of seating at the beach, but the sand is so powdery and the water so crystalline blue, furniture would probably just get in the way.

 

Why You Should Go

It's just a zippy 15 minutes from the airport. Cocktail time is so near you can taste it.

Kids' Club ages 4-11 has puppet theater, videogames & more. Your munchkins will love it.

The snack bar serves up delish snacks all day long. Lotsa good grazing.

There are wave runners for splash-worthy fun & a fitness center for calorie-burning.

You can tee off at three swingin' golf courses that aren't too far away.

But if you want a little more action, you all can hit the main marina town or take a boat trip to El Arco. It's all insanely Baja beautiful.
