We spent 10 nights of bliss at the Barcelo Montelimar. The property is gorgeous - and huge. You will do quite a bit of walking because, as a previous reviewer mentioned, the tram service is erratic. But other than that, there's nothing to complain about. Of course things are a bit different than in Mexico or the DR. This is...

The Barcelo Montelimar provided a great vacation experience. I will break this review into sub-parts. Customer Service: The customer service was fantastic. At one point I caught a case of Montezuma's Revenge and the staff went above and beyond. We were able to reschedule an excursion, and they even made me a bowl of chicken soup and delivered to my...

Let me just say right off that I would NEVER, EVER stay at this resort OR any Barceló branded property AGAIN (there is no option for a quarter of a star rating). This is not a destination for anyone that likes good service, good food, good drinks, competent desk service, clean facilities, updated décor or a full range of activities....

My family and I stayed at the Barcelo Montelimar from March 21 - April 04/08. We are a family of six, the youngest being 11 months old. We thought the place was absolutely amazing! We had wanted to go to some place different, with lots of sun. Also, travelling with an infant, we wanted the comfort a resort has to...

My husband and I chose this hotel as part of our first visit to Nicaragua because of the reviews, and we were very disappointed by our experience. Our first experience with the food was absolutely terrible - we arrived at about 1:00, but they wouldn't check us into our room until 2:30 - the lobby was swarmed with locals and...

Let me tell you, the first time i visited Montelimar I just fell in love with the place and the people there. It is outstanding. I have been to Montelimar more than 7 times now, and it just gets better everytime. Obviously the food is great, open bar, and all the pool activities, forget it. Me personally I have been...

My husband and I stayed in Montelimar for three days and the service was outstanding, friendly people and very safe. Sunny all the way, food was incredible they had an amazing variety of dishes, desserts and more.... I recommend you stay in the cabanas (the 100's) everything is close from the 100's, price is very fair for all inclusive hotel.

Best price on Barcelo web site. Bungalow in area 1 very convenient! Only Oceana buffet was open but selection and quality were excellent and the staff terrific. A torn hammock at our cabana was replaced within minutes after a call. You must check out at noon but can then stay for lunch til 3 PM (great!) Great hammocks everywhere. Surprisingly...

Well, this was a wonderful surprise. We booked very last minute, and got a fantastic price, so were not expecting such a wonderful resort. Went AirTransat (meal on the plane was horrid), but they took bags to the rooms in a truck direct from airport, and when we left to come home, air transat comes to the resort and you...

We went for a weekend getaway and loved every minute of it. The staff there were wonderful. Staff keeps everyone busy (or not) doing one thing or another, trying to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The choice is yours of how many activities you want to do, or if you just want to veg out by the beach...
