This was our first trip to the Pacific side of Mexico. We did some research before we left and it was what we expected. We stayed at a Barcelo on the east coast south of Cancun and the experience was about the same, both were good. We liked the pool, the beach and the view was great. We took the...

We traveled to the Barcelo in May of 2007 with two other couples. After reading some of the reviews of this hotel I was worried. My experience at the hotel and with Ixtapa was average. To start off with check-in, we arrived at 11:30 a.m. and had to wait until 3:00 p.m. for our room. This was not an issue...

May 16 - May 23rd, 2007 my family did have a few concerns. As I reflect back on the funds that we spent to book this trip, approx. $6500.00 for 4 persons for the all-inclusive, I’m finding myself a little disappointed in the value of the dollars spent. The Barcelo had many positives to speak of. The staff was friendly...

My boyfriend and I went to Ixtapa in mid April and loved it. We were looking for a relaxing trip that would include great weather, some surf, lazy days, walking on the beach, exploring, and just total chill time in the sun! We got this at the Barceló and in Ixtapa in general. The pool was not over crowded as...

We just returned after a week stay at the Barcelo. It was a nice hotel. We had a room on the 11th floor and it was a beautiful view and we kept our window open at night. It was so relaxing to hear the waves crashing. The hotel itself is very clean, staff friendly, buffets are good but get tiresome...
