The hotel is old (furniture, building, TVs, A/C) but clean. The food is good although it gets repetitive. The shows and entertainment are good, no complaints at all. Kudos! The service is good, Neftali and David at the "Veranda" Restaurant were really nice, nevertheless the service at the pool area could be improved, frequently I had to go to the...

The staff worked hard with what they had. The Hotel was nice for a 3 star Hotel. The rooms were clean. The pool was very dirty. It had a look to it.. I had a complaint about getting dinner in the buffet and it was gang seating with 10 -12 people on the table. You had to look for a...

We got to the Barcelo after a crazy hectic trip inland, so it was nice to be able to finally just chill out. The Barcelo is on a strip along Ixtapa beach with a bunch of other hotels, apartments, restaurants, etc. Nice area, some local markets and restaurants but mostly geared towards tourists. The hotel itself is slightly outdated but...

Evidently April is well past "American Season" in Ixtapa. We were advised that we were "not in season past March.' All the locals fill their vans and drive in from the surrounding states to vacation there, (with ALL their family). We were stared at like we had a growth coming out of our head. Children were allowed in the "Adult"...

Barcelo was a great place to stay in Ixtapa. I went in April with my husband and another couple and I would defintely recommend it to anyone. There were quite a few kids it being at the end of the Easter break, but they had a lot of programs for them so if you are bringing you children, looks like...

We have been to many all inclusives and we loved the Barcelo. The staff was extremely friendly. We were always met with a smile from check in to check out. Jesus was fantastic at the swim up bar. We traveled with another family and our kids from 19 - 24 became friends with Martin, another bartender. The food got repetitive...

Just returned from a 7 night stay. The hotel may be older but maintained well. The grounds were established and immaculate. Staff worked hard to control the luscious white sand from flowing from the beach to the pool and into to the rooms. It's nice to see locals use the hotel as their vacation spot (long weekend when we arrived)....

Just returned from Ixtapa, and we will definetely be back. We've been to Mexico several times, but this is by far the best. The room was basic, yet clean, the food was good, the beach was amazing, and we felt very safe there. What was really nice about this area is the business district right outside the resort. You can...

We just returned from a week (March 6-13th) long stay and had a nice time. My husband and I met our friends from Texas there, so there were four of us. The weather was wonderful and the beaches great and the ocean is warm enough to spend time in. We have typically stayed at Riu resorts in Puerto Vallarta and...

It's already been noted in other reviews that the Barcelo is older, and it shows. However, we had a terrific vacation because of the beach, the view, the weather, and our decision to upgrade to premium rooms. If you are looking for a medium cost and 3+ star hotel with a terrific beach environment, this is a good fit for...
