I have stayed at 2 other Barcelos and this location has the least dining options. Seafood restaurant “not available this month .” The Italian And Mexican alternate days open. Service staff poor!! Had to ask multiple times on multiple occasions for drinks or cream for coffee etc.. Check in was lousy. No welcome drinks. Had to wait a long time for clerk who was flirting with prior guest. It’s constant haggling every day on prices. WiFi was free but the front desk offered me 2 different prices ?? Never got mini bar refilled with water. One day we received no towels!! Overall poor food and maid service. Conceirge was very friendly and informative! No night life other than evening show. Everything over by 10 pm.

Really good hotel

Great hotel and very friendly staff. Beautiful beach and perfect location. One of the best hotels on the strip. Much better than the two hotels on either side.

Great food

This is my second time in a year at Barcelo and using Cheap Carribbean. I will start with the negative. Housekeeping....It was difficult to get your room cleaned before 5:30 at night. We would leave at 8 and be back at 4:30 and the room was not cleaned. We went 2 days without it getting cleaned and the 3rd day I went to front desk. Even with the tidy sign on. I was not a fan of the specialty dinners except for Sushi. I am not a fan of the only 2 bottles of water per room per day. No bottles at any of the bar. They are pouring you a glass from a pitcher. Sorry I am not drinking water out of a pitcher that I don't know where it has came from. The positive..... I loved the buffet. We had fresh omelettes every morning. Great selection of fresh fruit. I had fresh fish for lunch. For the hot items they need to be kept warmer. We sat outside on the beach. The beach is not swimmable but saw several people attempting it.

Just what I needed

I was looking for a sunny getaway all inclusive. Lovely resort with all the required amenities. It’s not luxurious but upscale and friendly staff. Great pool atmosphere with several choices of pool type. My dinners at the restaurants were all satisfying and tasty. Resort is close to shopping areas and Cabo San Lucas is not far by bus or taxi. I had a spa treatment - nice but I didn’t feel pampered. Breakfast - my favorite meal of the day because of the open dining area. Food was good but after three days you want other choices. Downsides - paying for wi fi and not enough alcohol in drinks and use of their well brands for the free drinks. Beaches here are not great...but you can’t beat the sun.

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.

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.
