My wife and I just got back from the Barcelo a few days ago, and I'm not about to review food and people who complain about not receiving enough shower soap. But I really have to address the bug bite situation. These nasty little creature are called jenjenes. First off I should mention we have stayed at this hotel six...

The resort was very clean, room very spacious and staff friendly. Food choices were very limited - however had some of the best dessert crepes I have ever had! Wifi in the rooms was poor and the beach was VERY small. Pools were very nice. Need more hammocks! It was far enough away from the downtown city area on a...

A group of friends, 26 in all, just spent a week at the Barcelo all-inclusive resort. The facility was smaller than others we've stayed at and a single resort (no shared beaches/restaurants with other resorts near by). The rooms were very comfortable with great showers. The staff was excellent, very friendly and attentive. Beach area was very small. A local...

Barceló Puerto Vallarta is the perfect definition of desapointment. It is at best the fruit of bad research from our part to the perfectly hidden aspects of this hotel from the lack of information by the hotel and honest reviews. - This hotel is noisy, noisy and even more noisy. Music starts very early in the morning and extends greatly...

We spent an awesome week at barcelo. Staff was great, always friendly and helpful, buffet was probably the best we've experienced at an all inclusive, great variety, and choices. Snack bar was good for a midday option as well. We ate at 3 of the restaurants, all but the Japanese, they were ok, nothing spectacular. The no see ums are...

Not a fan of the DJ at the pool all day. The room was clean and the amenities were fine. The location, on that cove, was GREAT! We went down the beach and had a great meal and then took a boat on an excursion. Antoni R., one of the bartenders, was SUPERB.

The overall Resort is a 4 out of 5. I am being very picky here. I expected more for the food. The rest of the resort is great. Rooms are lovely and the pool is great. I read you do not get a lot of sun around the pool...well you do have to switch sides of the pool come afternoon....
