Beautiful Beach, noisy rooms with hard beds.

Make food and drinks available at all times. Rooms too noisy. We could hear dishes clanking from 6am-10pm. Beds too hard.

There is a reason it is only 3 1/2 Stars, there are some points that are excellent but other details were they lack. Door lock never worked properly in one of our rooms, Don Quijote restaurant was always full and could not accomodate our entire party and reception area is way to small with not enough personnel for the check outs and check ins, about 1 hour waiting each time. Food is of very good quality with plenty of it. Service around the pool is good especially if you tip them, otherwise you might not see them for a long time. Rooms were clean and staff friendly, minor repairs do need to be taken care of. You are getting what you paid for overall, that is why I would recommend it, value.

What's to Love

You get El Palmar Beach and the resort's adult-only pool with a swim-up bar; that means easy access to the beach and awesome views from the pool.

 

What We'd Change

Grabbing a poolside lounger can take strategy and determination if the resort's full, pony-up to the swim-up bar or wander onto the beach for more loungers.

 

Why You Should Go

Barcelo Ixtapa Beach Resort is like two destinations in one, with the resort town of Ixtapa and the charming fishing village of Zihuatanejo at your fingertips.

Map of Local Area

Quaint and cozy, the towns of Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo are quickly gaining a reputation among tourists seeking rest and relaxation rather than the hustle and bustle of large resort towns.

Hotel Description

Barcelo Ixtapa Beach Resort: Huatulco Luxury in Old Mexico

All inclusive Barcelo Ixtapa Beach Resort in Huatulco overlooks the soft sands and blue-green waters of the beaches of Ixtapa, Mexico. The resort's adult-only pool, with a swim-up bar, offers a stunning beachfront view. Not only do guests have easy-breezy access to the beach from the poolside loungers, but they can also experience breathtaking coastal views of the Pacific with a cocktail and snack in hand at the partially submerged restaurant/bar, Caracol. Two other swimming pools - one for the kids and the other featuring an adjacent Jacuzzi - rounds out a nice trio of places to relax, unwind and enjoy Mexico.

The four restaurants at Barcelo Ixtapa Beach offer a fine array of dining options. Don Quijote's combination of Mexican cuisine and the soothing sounds of soft music helps you relax as you dine, while Veranda's nightly variety of themed buffets keeps your taste buds guessing and your fork moving. Nightly entertainment starts off with something for the kids before moving on late into the night with live performances of international music and plenty of excuses to dance till dawn.

Guests of the resort find plenty to do between the two outdoor tennis courts, a fitness center and daily competition in the form of beach and pool volleyball or water polo. Or try your hand at a friendly game of beach football. Those looking to unwind rather than wind-up can find plenty of ways to indulge at the spa located next to the main lobby. How about booking a massage on the beach? Or let the kids play at the Kid's Club while you tee it up at a local golf course or wander through the nearby shops. Better yet, treat the family to snorkeling or diving tour courtesy of the on-site dive shop.

If and when you decide you need quiet time after a busy day, a plush bed awaits while the mini bar and fully furnished balcony or patio encourage you to simply chill out as you gaze at paradise.
