Our Opinion

One of the better options for those looking for a budget-friendly resort in Cancun. The Barcelo Costa Cancun is considering one of the better options to stay if you're looking for great value and quality. The resort grounds and rooms are pleasant and well-maintained by equally pleasant and knowledgeable staff. Great options to choose from with regards to food options. There is a 24hr self-serve snack bar -including drinks- that guests can access when the lobby bar closes. The pools are a little on the smaller side compared to other resorts. The resort is located in the heart of the resort strip in Cancun, so a lot of guests do report a lot more noise around the area than most locations. However, it's a great place for young travelers and couples who are looking a great economical resort that's in the heart of the action!

Formerly the Gran Costa Real Cancun, this beautiful beachfront Mediterranean-style resort is set on the sheltered bayside of the Caribbean overlooking Playa Linda. Enjoy renovated rooms decorated tastefully each with a French balcony. Barcelo Costa Cancun is distinguished for its excellent service and personalized quality.

Location: On Playa Linda beach, in the heart of Cancun's hotel zone, 5 min to downtown, 25 min from the airport.

The Barcelo Costa Hotel in cancun was a lovely hotel to stay in. All the staff were very helpful accommodating and very welcoming.Our room was cleaned every day and bedding changed. The bar and restaurant staff were very friendly, fun and welcoming and went out of their way to see we had everything we needed and that we were happy with the service they provided which was never too much for them.We had a very relaxing, enjoyable holiday here in cancun Mexico with lots of excursions to visit such as Xcaret!..a huge theme park over looking the beach with a large zoo full of unique animals, swimming caves ,lots of restaurants, an exotic bird park, an aquarium with dolphins and sharks followed by the night show that tells the story from way back of the Mexican people..amazing!! We then visited the famous Chichen itza and the Mayan Village with all the arts and crafts that the Mayan people made themselves.. very skilled and impressive workmanship..all just breath taking!! We visited the lot!!..As for the night life...where do we start...Coco bongo was one of the best clubs and live shows we have ever been to to date along with the City club and the beach party..all reasonable priced with all your drinks included and just 10 minutes from the hotel which we always took the bus that always had great music playing we refered to it as the"Rave Bush always very entertaining and got us ready for our nights out!! We would seriously highly recommend going to Cancun Mexico and staying at the Barcelo Costa hotel, as this holiday was for us a memory of a lifetime.Go see for yourself.Mr & Mrs Edwin Barrett.

Very good

Stayed here for 2 weeks in February. Was a ace holiday and a wonderful hotel. We booked the all inclusive and the food and drinks were good. The hotel was very clean and modern. The staff were friendly and kind. We booked all our excursions at the hotel so we didn't get ripped off. The man who did it was so funny and very friendly. Would definitely return enjoyed our stay!

Superb 4th visit

This was our fourth visit and again excelled in every way, such a shame our tour operator messed up and we had to move for the last night, due to the hotel closing for some renovations. Our last day was so fantastic, and cannot wait to go back in 2017 to see the changes, but most of all the staff whom we have become so fond of, especially Alfredo, Alberto, Pepe, Bernardo , augusto, Sandra, Carmen and Juanita , so many more to mention.In all my years of holidays, cancun, Mexico and the barcelo Costa cancun, are the best I've ever hadWe love it and hope to book again soon, when it re-opens
