OK - Won't be returning

Resort was close to the airport and the check in was an easy process, That may be the only positive experience during the week. The bed was uncomfortable and we were left without enough towels and toilet paper daily. The buffet was standard with limited choices. Entertainment is nightly but extremely boring, we chose to return to our room and go on our ipad for entertainment. We paid for a week of internet but service was poor. We did leave the resort and had massages across the street, we also took a local bus into Los Cabos Marina area. We felt very safe. Cabo is very nice however I would not choose this resort again. As a note this is the first poor review I have posted after years of booking with Cheap Carribean.

Great Service

I was there for 10 days with my husband, cousin and cousin's girlfriend. The room was nice. We had a ocean facing room so we could watch the sunrise everyday. The food was ok. We've stayed at other Barcelo resorts and the food quality here wasn't as great. The service was amazing! Everyone was so friendly and they truly enjoy to get people engaged. Jessica is great at getting people to play beach volleyball and other activities. Jorge is a beach/pool waiter by day and works in the restaurant at night. He truly made the experience. Jorge builds relationships with the guests and can predict your future needs. He was quick to respond and always had a smile on his face. There were many other people that made the experience great but these two really stood out. Thank you for a great vacation!

Great Vacation! January 2019 Stay

Great resort overall. I travel quite frequently each year and this was one of my favorite places worldwide (Asia, Europe and Mexico/Caribbean) . To enjoy the resort opt in for the premium package, if you do, your stay will be great. Reading some of the negative reviews on this resort mostly direct the negative comments by not researching what is available with each package level the resort offers. The premium package room, meals, and premium lounge make the stay great. This bypasses 99% of the negative comments posted on here. The resort is a little smaller which actually makes the stay more enjoyable. There are fewer people fighting for pool chairs, rarely a line for the food buffets, and an overall relaxing experience. One con i would say is that it takes a long time to get coffee/drinks at the buffet. The evening entertainment is typical entertainment for places in Mexico. Lip Syncing and dancing. I see this more so a gathering place for people to meet after dinner and have an after dinner drink. Most people are exhausted from the day on the beach, sun, and a few cocktails. The crowd quickly goes back to their room after the show. The rest of the evening will generally be very quiet. Our stay at the Barcelo was for 7 nights/8 Days. Overall for the price of the resort you can't go wrong if you are looking for a relaxing vacation with everything catered to you. I generally book travel with a different travel site. This is the first experience I have had with Cheap Caribbean. I will say they do an excellent job end to end and will be using their services again.

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.

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.

Map of Local Area

Hotel Description

Barcelo Gran Faro Los Cabos - All-Inclusive: All-Fam Friendly & All-Aahsome

Located in San Jose del Cabo, this sweet resort is fam-tastic. The destination is primo because it's not smack dab in the middle of Cabo, but outside of town. 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.
