The beach and pools were very clean and the grounds were looked after.We will be back for two weeks next year

We just returned from a week at Barcelo. Our trip was booked through Air Canada Vacations and was worth every cent. We were greeted at the airport by AC staff and escorted to an air conditioned bus nicely stocked with cold cervecas! Check in was quick and easy. Our room was "standard" and quite adequate. The air conditioning worked well...

After booking and then reading the reviews here, we were second guessing ourselves, all for naught! We were pleasantly surprised. The resort and grounds were kept immaculate. True the food choices began to feel somewhat repetitive, but the cost allowed us to splurge on nearby excellent restaurants. The staff was extremely courteous and prompt in fulfilling any requests we had....
