Great service, rocky beach

Probably the best service I've gotten in a long time, especially since I was traveling with a 1 1/2 year old. Food was decent, there nicer restaurants were ok at best. Biggest issues is the beach is rocky. It's a nice resort if you want little more seclusion and child friendly. Still only a $8 usd cab ride into town.

Best food but lacking fiesta

We initially booked the Riu Jalisco for our annual family vacation. However, 12 days before our trip, cheapcaribbean informed us that the Riu was overbooked and we were moved to the Barcelo. Cheap Caribbean did a nice job in accommodating the other guests that were traveling with us even though they booked through different companies. We traveled December 28-January 4th. Check-in was okay, I asked for an upgrade due to losing amenities that the Riu had, Alejandro was able to help us out with that change. Our one week stay was very mild. We are used to letting loose and having fun on our trips but the Barcelo was much more family oriented. They daily activities were bland, but the entertainment staff was great. The nightly shows were the least extravagant that we have seen but the Michael Jackson tribute was amazing. After the show, there's a small bar called "the cantina" that everyone crowds around. The drinks and service were good, but again-it was very mellow. The best part about this vacation was the food. Everything that we ate besides the Italian restaurant was phenomenal. Honestly this is the best resort food I have ever had. The drinks were also made with "real" booze and I didn't feel like I had to drink 20 drinks to get the effect of one. Next to the resort is a wonderful restaurant with great margaritas. I would suggest eating there and also getting massages just a ways more down the beach. I would also recommend going to the zoo that is a close walk from the resort. We took a bus into town one day, but I would advise a cab if you don't want to feel nauseous, crowded, and sweaty. We will be returning to puerto Vallarta next year, but we won't be choosing Barcelo simply because it wasn't as "fun" as the Riu and Iberostar resorts have been.

What's to Love

It's an all-inclusive, one-stop-shop of beachy goodness.

The breath-stealing landscape of the mountains and shores of Mismaloya Beach.

Chillaxing at the dripping-with-awesome U-Spa that's all about you.

Sending the beach babies to the Kids Club for piñatas, treasure hunts & movies.

 

What We'd Change

There's not much to walk to in the surrounding area, since downtown Puerto Vallarta is 15 minutes away, but that means no noisy traffic to disturb your peace!

 

Why You Should Go

It's 45 minutes from the airport - a view of the Pacific & a cocktail will happen pronto.

All rooms have balconies or a terrace. Entertain old friends - or new.

Downtown Puerto Vallarta is just 15 minutes away for shopping & more vacay fun.

Three golf courses are near. Take your pick for tee time.

Hotel Description

Barcelo Puerto Vallarta: All-Inclusive Pacific Coast Cool

Located between a lush, tropical jungle and the shimmering Pacific, this earth-heaven sits on the beach that was the location for the famous Richard Burton film, "Night of the Iguana." But this place is far from drama-ridden. It's your sanctuary of cool. Your place to dig your toes into the sand. Sip on your favorite adult beverage. Work on your tan. If you want to increase your heart rate, dive into water sports, tennis, or volleyball. Then bring things back down with whale-watching (in season) or a sunset stroll on the sand. Make time to make memories. You only live once.

DINING

Ready your chops - you've got a lot of flavors coming your way: how about paella? (That's Spanish). Or Italian? The gelato is fab. Graze on the buffet with global grub, or sit yourself down for at the grill for steak and seafood. Note for the guys: beach sandals and swimwear are not permitted in the specialty restaurants.
