Just got back from a week at Barcelo. Was hit and miss on what they are trying to do there. Place and rooms are nice. Beach is swimmable. If you sit on the beach be prepared to see vendors and people selling boat trips to Los Arcos and Las Animas. The "All Inclusive" package you get from expedia etc ....

Many times to Puerta Vallarta. First time at Barcelo. South of town. Forest and ocean next to each other. Not the fanciest in PV but great room and views. Concierge Lucy is so helpful and nice. Good time

The Barceló Puerto Vallarta is an older all-inclusive hotel on a historic beach where the film "Night of the Iguana" was filmed back in the 1960's. I would rate it as "average" because of its need for updating compared to other all-inclusive hotels we have stayed at in the Caribbean. Where the hotel excels is in its employees and thus,...

To start, we have never been to Puerto Vallarta or an all-inclusive resort. Very easy to get around. Taxi from airport was $20 and 45 minutes. I did change $200 for about 3600 pesos ($.18) in advance but never needed more. We upgraded to Premium (we got a bracelet like some events) that gave us a room on the 7th...

The hotel room, staff and food was excellent. We were well taken care of by Raul, Oscar and Antonio. Would definitely come back. There is so much to do on site, you dont have to leave.

We just came back from our vacation to Puerto Vallarta and we really enjoyed our stay at Barcelo! Staff was very friendly all the time! (Oscar gets 5 stars!) Great restaurant choices for supper with decent drinks also! (Had to get doubles to get any amount of booze in them though) Would recommend to friends!
