We traveled to the Barcelo in May of 2007 with two other couples. After reading some of the reviews of this hotel I was worried. My experience at the hotel and with Ixtapa was average. To start off with check-in, we arrived at 11:30 a.m. and had to wait until 3:00 p.m. for our room. This was not an issue...

May 16 - May 23rd, 2007 my family did have a few concerns. As I reflect back on the funds that we spent to book this trip, approx. $6500.00 for 4 persons for the all-inclusive, I’m finding myself a little disappointed in the value of the dollars spent. The Barcelo had many positives to speak of. The staff was friendly...

My husband and I stayed at the Barcelo in Ixtapa from May 19-25, our stay was nice but there were somethings that we did not like. I had read previously on Trip Advisor about the hotel so I had an idea of what to expect but I was still surprised by somethings. The room that they first put us in...

We Stayed at the hotel last week. We requested upper floor, ocean view, king bed.That is what we recieved, But then you get no balcony. We switched to a balcony room, but then you can only have twin beds. We kept the balcony , but the airconditioning which we kept on high and closed the drapes only cooled the room...

My boyfriend and I went to Ixtapa in mid April and loved it. We were looking for a relaxing trip that would include great weather, some surf, lazy days, walking on the beach, exploring, and just total chill time in the sun! We got this at the Barceló and in Ixtapa in general. The pool was not over crowded as...

Returned from the Barcelo on April 20th. I have been to many all-inclusive hotels but this was by far the worst. The rooms need to be remodeled. The food was terrible and the drinks were even worse. My boyfriend found a piece of wire mesh in his sandwich!! Not a lot of entertainment for adults. No snack places after 11p...

We just returned after a week stay at the Barcelo. It was a nice hotel. We had a room on the 11th floor and it was a beautiful view and we kept our window open at night. It was so relaxing to hear the waves crashing. The hotel itself is very clean, staff friendly, buffets are good but get tiresome...

Just returned from the Barcelo. We were sent there by my husband's company. Overall experience was wonderful. We asked for king size room and ended up with 2 double beds. Hotel is located just across the street from the open air market. Hint: don't pay the price they tell you...they will come down. Senor Frogs and other clubs are in...

Just returned from the Barcelo with my wife and we really liked it. The place looks just like the pictures, is very clean, and is located on a beautiful 2-mile beach. We arrived early and were allowed to check in, and they let us switch rooms to get a king bed. The week before Easter was very crowded with many...
