There were warning signs at arrival, lots of young American / Canadian men and women who were on spring break, all in a buoyish mood, shouting and walking about drinking in the lobby, some in their swim wear, despite notices to say that tops and footwear should be worn at all times. Management took NO action what so ever to...

Our stay was Feb 27th- Mar 6th, this was our second visit to Cancun and to the Barcelo Costa, everyone treated us with excellent service and were very friendly. Our room was clean like a 5 star Hotel. Food services were very good, but yes you had to be down early to book a reservation. Lobby and Bar staff do...

The resort provides a good value accomodation in Cancun. I loved the beach, although yes, it is rather small. But the sea is calm, so you can actually swim and soak! The food is ok, not the best you can have in cancun. And way more "international" than Mexican (Spaghetti Alfredo????). Over spring break the resort was obviously very busy,...

I have been to Cancun twice now and I must say that the Barcelo Costa Cancun was an amazing resort and I would definitely return there. It is a smaller resort with approximately 300 rooms but I liked that because you got to know everybody on the resort and make friends. I did go for a girls stag party but...

We checked in on the March 4 after spending the night on the Isle de las Mujeres. I read many reviews and I was a little concerned about our hotel choice. It didn't help that a lady was at the reception desk wanting to change rooms due to a horrible odor in her room. The people working the desk were...

Me and my friend stayed at Barcelo Costa Cancun from 28/2/2010-5/3/2010 for spring break. We got the trip for a steal (792$ pp for roundtrip transportation + hotel + bus transfers + tips + all inclusive). Overall, I liked my stay at the Barcelo Costa. The place itself is very nice and perfectly clean. The service, with some exceptions, is...
