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.

Hotel needs updating, rooms and furniture are old and run down.

I stayed here the week of 11.21.16, and the check in process was less than good. There was a ton of confusion and we were supposed to be on the 10th floor, however there weren't any room so we got stuck on the 1st floor for 2 nights. The rooms on the 1st floor are not only loud as hell, but the a/c didn't work well so it was terribly hot. Everything in the atrium echos in the rooms, so you can hear people talking, dishes clacking and kids screaming. The beds were hard as concrete and the room was very run down. You had to literally step into the shower in order to close the bathroom door to use the bathroom. Once we moved to the 10th floor it was better however this hotel needs a major makeover. The only good part of it was the staff. Carlos and Johnathan were amazing and they made all the activities extra fun. As far as the upper management staff, well they could use some coaching as to how to treat their guests especially if they want them to return in the future.

Great trip!! Hotel is close to everything you need!!

I stayed there September 11th-16th, it was amazing!! Weather was great no one at the hotel until the day before El Grito. From the hotel you can walk on the beach and rent jet skis, para sail, and play vollyball or soccer. The Hotel is located very close to everything you want to do. They also have a great staff from the Bellman to all the restaurants servers. The only down side was when i booked online it said I could upgrade my drink package when I checked I called to confirm and this is true, but when I checked in I wanted to do this just for myself not for my family, they said this could not be done it had to be for everyone. "So I just bought my favorite liquor at the store down the street". Other than that the place was insane for the price and location. Room had amazing views and the AC was super cool, which is needed this time of year. I would definitely recommend this Hotel!! Again the Bell and Restaurants staffs are AMAZING!!

Very Good Hotel Other Than Most Of The Food

This hotel is right across from some of the best restaurants in Mexico. The Mexican night in the entertainment area ,the food is good. Don't miss the barbeque, very good. The buffet at this hotel is lousy ,as is most of the buffets at hotels In Ixtapa.

Where to begin... nothing premium about it!

As soon as you check-in you are nickel and dimed. •There is no free wifi unless you upgrade to the club package. Which really is not all that great. It allows you better booze, higher floor, free wifi and access to the specialty restaurants. The bartenders pour what's in front of them anyway, so no need.•We found out you can eat at the specialty resturant every three days you stay. We got some contradicting information at first. •When you get to your room check your mattress ours had holes and stains in it because it's so old [See photo]•You cannot make charges to your room you have to pay as you go which truly defeats the purpose of staying at an all-inclusive.•The food is average. Breakfast and Don Quijote are the better options. •What is with the pool towels? We visited with a group of friends and there was a consistent issue with towels and the hoteltrying to make a buck. Bring your own an avoid the hassle.•Staff is friendly but need standardization in service. Only reason they did not get worse rating. •Old building so changing temperature in your shower is normal. Will not be retuning, better quality and prices elsewhere.
