It's really clean and very friendly people! I came here on vacation with my brother and my cousin, we are traveling from Houston Texas and it's a beautiful hotel! The rooms are comfortable and I wouldn't mind staying here again.

This is the second time we had stayed at this hotel. The last time was Nov. 2001. We upgraded to Premium so could go to the specialty resturants as many times as we wanted. These restaurants were great but there were only three and we didn't go to the Japanese one because we don't like raw fish. The owners welcome...

I like my room because you can see the ocean and the pool from there. I also liked the food because it's really good. I also liked riding on the banana it was a fun experience. If I could come here again I would.

Barcelo hotel hosts a Mexican Fiesta dinner theater. It's an all you can eat buffet (ten drinks) with Mariachi bands and Flamenco dancers. It's a little-known attraction well worth the money. Two hours of entertainment.

Recently stayed for the Easter holidays at the Ixtapa Barcelo, being an all inclusive you would not think people would go out to restaurants and pay to eat!
