    Superb

    The hotel has a great structure and the ocean front view rooms are really a step away from the beach. The variety of restaurants is very good and the french one is really great! Great staff.

    The room had some things that didn't work very well. Example: every time we took a shower, the water went under the box wall till the toilet. One other thing that wasn´t very is that the toilet door didn't go all the way to the ceiling. Anyway, nothing of that was a huge problem.

    The hotel has a good service offer for all sorts of guests (shops, animations, shows, sports, etc.). The beach is very nice.

    The hotel offers all-inclusive food in various buffets and restaurants, but the food generally is not very tasty!

    Good

    everything is okey exept the room.

    the room i stayed was on top of the cafeteria and the noise of dish washing and spoons, knifes, and forks was horrible. we had the worst one night ever. we had a very bad experiance and would not reccomend anyone to have any of these rooms close to cafeteria. i booked a room with deluxe ocean view and it was a hell of a night. i hope these comments will help others not to have that bad experience. and the air conditioning was making a lot of noise. room 3223. thanks

    Not much i liked about this Hotel or Barcelo. Probably will not stay at another Barcelo again. The staff was terrible, slow, unorganized. Did not respond to phone requests for towels , bottled water, batteries for remote control. Beach towels where not available. Requested king size bed, got 2 doubles. Rude and un help ful staff. Tha only person that was excellent was Fatima in Guest services, if not for her i would have checked out the day i arrived.

    reservations for restaurants???? They where empty. what is the point. Poor food quality. D.R. is not worth going back to. Complete waste of money and way to stressful of a vacation.

    The resort has very nice acomodations and the bartenders are very funny and well humored, the receptionists are very helpfull and give good directions. The guest service is perfect when it comes to book dinner reservations at the 7 night restaurants. Rome restaurant and tokio are the best ever;

    Italian restaurant was good and the bed was comfortable. Beach was best part of the stay.

    Reception desk had continuous long lines, reservations required at all restaurants, wifi $20 for 2 hours, food at buffet was not great, alcoholic drinks were very weak. Pool closes at 7pm.
