Barcelo Karmina Palace Deluxe

Had a very nice week at this all inclusive vacation resort. The buffet had many choices for anyone to eat three times a day. There are three specialty restaurants and they are worth getting a reservation for. The pool boys were great and a minimum tip first thing in the day kept them coming all day long with great service. The room was very spacious and comfortable. Very impressive. I give this resort a thumbs up and would suggest it for anyone going to Manzanillo.

Definitely Exceeds Expectations

So, it was a semi-last minute booking, and the price was right...and my girlfriend and I were pleasantly surprised. The grounds are beautiful, the pool is beautiful, the beach is nice/acceptable (it's in a cove, so it's not quite open beach, but it works), the service was excellent on all fronts, and the room was more than sufficient as a place to lay your head (We're not big room dwellers. Nice shower, decently comfortable bed, plenty of room, all that one could need...). The bartenders were very friendly and accommodating (bring your own large cup to cut down on trips to the bar), as were all the wait staff in all the resturaunts. The Italian a la carte was slightly off the mark, but the food was still acceptable, even excellent by all-inclusive standards, with only one mix-up which could easily be attributed to an easy miscommunication. The Mexican a la carte was WELL worth it (we actually went there twice), with absolutely gorgeous views, on point food and very attentive and friendly staff. My only issue with the a la carte is the limit on visits during your stay and the seemingly strict reservation policy. I must also note that the buffet and breakfast/lunch food was, by all-inclusive standards, excellent. There are clearly no complaints at all in that regard...in any regard, actually. For a couple, I'd definitely give this a recommend. (And I'd also HIGHLY recommend checking out Playa Miramar to get away from the resort. Beautiful beach and interesting food/people/sights.)

The facility was not even ready to be open, half of the pools and the volleyball beach court were in repair, the people who entertain did not know how to do it the schedules were posted with some activities and at the last minute were changed. Bad vacation for our family
