Our Opinion

Barcelo Ixtapa is a solid 4 star property that is within walking distance to the local shopping area. Most rooms here have ocean views and rooms with double beds have a balcony, rooms with king beds have no balcony. Lots of activities by the pool. The Barcelo Ixtapa is a great resort for couples and families!


Overview
Enjoy well-known Barcelo quality along with warm, welcoming service at this grand, handsomely-furnished all-inclusive. It's located on a long stretch of Palmar beach, perfect for long walks. The wide range of facilities and amenities make the Barcelo Ixtapa a hit with families. The striking lobby features a towering atrium that runs the height of the building, an inviting place to sip a drink and people-watch.

Location: On El Palmar Beach, 10 minute drive to Zihuatanejo, few minutes walk from restaurants, nightclubs and shopping, 20 minutes from the airport.

Relaxing vacation

We stayed here 2/17/17-2/24/17 and absolutely loved it. The staff was very friendly, rooms were very nice and clean, grounds were extremely clean. The beach was probably the cleanest beach I have ever been to in Mexico. Ixtapa itself is a beautiful city. The market and all shopping is walking distance, pretty much a block from the resort. The only thing I didn't care for was the choices for dinner, but that was my problem, nothing I would downgrade the resort for. The shows every night were amazing, they are very talented dancers. We are already talking about returning next year. There were a lot of people who have ben going to this resort for 5, 10, and 20 years which is a first for any resort we have gone to in Mexico, and this is our 9th year going. The weather was perfect too. Great service all the way around. Thank you Barcelo Ixtapa Beach for a great vacation, we will be back.

Vacation @ Barcelo Resort

This was our 3rd stay @ Barcelo resort in Ixtapa Mexico and will be returning again in 2018. The hotel and resort is spotless and the folks that work there really know how to make you visit a memorable one. Rooms, Restaurants and the entire resort is very clean. You would be hard pressed to find a fly. The Beach is one of the grandest beaches I have ever been on, super clean from one end to the other and the sand id so fine. One of my favorites is the shows the resort puts on, spectacular.

Great Experience

We had a wonderful time at Barcelo Ixtapa. There was a wide variety of meals - you could have a different breakfast each morning. The resort was clean. The Barcelo employees were very friendly and helpful. The beach was beautiful. We went with another couple and all are planning on returning to Barcelo Ixtapa!

Another Visit to the Barcelo Chain

Our Vacation was Feb.2 - Feb 16, 2017. Arrived on sunwing from Edmonton to ixtapa via Saskatoon. This is a long flight for the Edmontonians, especially on the way back. The airport arrival and bus transfer to the hotel was smooth. We purchased the the Premium Club so there is a special desk to register at. I had requested a kingsize bed, Ocean view extra pillows and a higher floor room. Got most of my request except for Kingsize bed. They promised to get us a room change for Sunday, but they never did come through with that. we were on the 9th floor. We just pushed the two queen beds together for the duration of our trip. The staff are all very nice and accommodating. The rooms were kept clean as was the rest of the property. We ate mostly at the buffet and out in ixtapa, but one night we ate at Don Qioutes I had the shrimp and my husband had the Lamb, both tasted fine, except, by 2:00AM I was throwing up....I was fine for the next day, The shrimp , I guess did not agree with me.Lots of locals visit on the weekends, Which I love to see, they are so family oriented and the children are fun to watch.The gym is great opens I think at 6:00 AM. We went out lots, took local bus to Zihuataneo, then water taxi to Las Gatas, that was a lovely day. another day we took bus to Loma Linda and water taxi to Ixtapa Island, great place to snorkel and spend the day.We also made reservations to have a lovely dinner at El Faro, We had beef tenderloin and enjoyed the sunset View, you can take the gondola from the beach up to it, or you can take a taxi. of, Course we went over to ixtapa a few times, Had Pizza at both Franks pizza and Emilios place, Emilios was hands down the best pizza. Franks pizza has great music and the owners are so friendly and accommodating... Frank has a new puppy, "Jazz"....., We also listened to some Blues music at "The Generals". We did also spend the day in Zihuataneo in the local Markets, great experience.It is easy to exchange money at the bank, but if your password is remembered by letters, try to memorize it using numbers, the machines do not use letters.WE so love this area, there is so much to do on your own you never should be bored there.The one negative is all the obnoxious Smokers, they seem to like to smoke everywhere and do not care about inflicting their habit on nonsmokers. sometimes it got very thick, I had to move a few times. People should be more considerate.The barcelo is perfect location and the people who work there are so so sweet. Many have been there for 30 years or more. Another excellent trip for sure....... Thanks Barceló!

Winter holiday away from the snow.

The Barcelo Ixtapa is an "all inclusive" resort. Right on the beach in the "hotel zone" in Ixtapa. We were picked up at the airport, no hassle there, and delivered right to the hotel. Quick check in. Went to the Mexican Fiesta night, was good food and decent entertainment, well organized. The buffets were pretty much what you would expect. The food was always available, plentiful and tasty. Enough variety that we were happy. The room we had faced the ocean. It was clean, quiet, air conditioning was fine. Coffee maker and minibar. The building is not brand new, but, is pretty much exactly what you would expect for this price range. We will be back, very satified.
