Barcelo Gran Faro

First the good: The staff and service were both great very friendly and accommodating. The pool area was clean well set up and service was good. Rooms were typical of the price range and kept very clean. The food was good but restaurant options were limited due to one being closed due to construction. The needs improvement: What do you mean no free internet anywhere in hotel? $10 per day for up to 3 devices, lets get with it Barcelo you are behind the times. Once you register a device it is permanent. A family of two with two IPhones and two IPads cannot disconnect one and connect another. You are forced to purchase another. Sorry but for us this could be a deal breaker! One hint: The sky bar was outstanding, a great view never crowded give it a try. Not sure if I would return unless internet issue is resolved too bad otherwise straight up 4 star.

June trip

We went to Barceló June 3rd 2017. Let me start of by the resort is very clean and well kept. It was not crowded at all which was nice as well. Don't be fooled by the "room credits". They do not mean anything other than a 10% discount on stuff. Not like other resorts where you use room credits and then you pay 20%. Also, we had the premium level ocean front rooms. 4 of them. I can say that the premium level wasn't really worth it unless you plan on drinking premium liquor such as Crown Royal. That was about the only plus. Our room had one pair of slippers no robe.....none of the rooms had everything it said. The mini bar in the room did not have liquor....it had water, pop, a bag of chips and two beers...oh and two waters. We never got turn down service at all so really the premium cost was a joke. Now for what I didn't like. The service at the pool was horrible and so was the food at the bar. the food was cold and same stuff every day for 8 days. The bar tenders at the swim up bar were slow and truly acted like they could care less if you were there. You could ask for the same drink all day and everytime you got it it tasted completely different. No smiles....didn't say a word to you....and were SLOW. Add to that we actually only had someone ask us twice in 8 days if we wanted drinks and brought them to us. The rest of the time we had to go get our own. The absolute best part was the two bartenders that worked in the sky bar. If the whole staff would work like these two this place would be awesome. They have customer service down and know how to have fun with customers.....which I believe is what it is all about. When you go make sure you say hi to Juan and Arturo! They are the best and will make sure you are taken care of and have fun! Overall it was nice and clean. And the buffet food was good. We ate it 5 of the 7 nights because specialty places were not good! If you just want to relax in a clean place and don't expect much else....it is good. Steve

Really nice vacation but..

First off it is really a nice resort. Few things. Do not book this for the "beach" outside the resort. You can not swim in this area. Also this resort is about a $40.00 drive to and from the Marina or $7.00 to the (downtown) shopping. Some nice shops nothing like the marina area (better pricing) The resort took care of all your needs and it was always clean. Ask for Elvis in the dinning area he is really awesome.

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.

This means you and your brood can chillax in the tropical splendor of Baja - walk on the beach, do the water sports thing, bask in the glow of the magical sunsets and more. 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.
