So much to love about Barceló. We booked this trip with Apple Vacations and could not be happier. From the moment we checked in with the Premium desk, it was first class all the way. We were given a full understanding of what we can expect with our package, and except for the turn down service, (which was not needed) it was all delivered. Great room 1619, super clean with a very comfortable bed, and quiet. Full stocked frig with beer, soda, water and snacks refilled everyday. The view from our room had to be one of the best on the entire property. Quick elevators really made the time to and from the room easy. The food was better than any other all inclusive that I have been to before in either Cancun of the DR. We ate in all of the restaurants except for one serving sushi, (prefer my food to be cooked). All were either very good or excellent. We made our reservations for 6:30 and were seated as soon as we walked in. We did eat at the Buffet one night and were impressed with the selection of different foods, all hot and tasty. We did room service on our last day before heading to airport and could not believe how good the sandwiches were. The main pool is were we spent most of our time and never had an issue finding a place to sit. The resort is not too big that you feel lost, and is easy to navigate to the beach whenever you want. The beach was very rough so there was no swimming but the walks were always great.Don't miss cocktails in the sky bar for sunsets!I am saving the best part for the end, the service. I can not begin to tell you have how hard the staff here works to make sure you are happy. Always smiling and saying good morning or hope you have a nice day with us. They work so hard that giving tips never seemed to be enough. We met so many great servers, Roberto, Jorge, Luis, Miguel and so many others that made me wish they could train servers back in the U.S. what customer service should look like.Again thank you for making our 5 days so enjoyable, and we will now be making the Barceló our new Mexican place to go.
Enjoyed the entire hang-loose vacation..excellent service including fun, sun, drinks, pool time, entertainment and activities 😎👍‼️ Even the spa was a delight ❣️ Will duplicate this vacation for sure !
This resort is small, perfect for people who want to relax and not walk miles. It is in San Jose del Cabo so it is $40 to Cabo San Lucas each way. Plan accordingly. The price was good, food is good and the resort was very clean. I would definitely go back.
When the beginning of our anniversary vacation turned into a nightmare somewhere else, we decided to salvage the rest of the trip by checking into the Barcelo Gran Faro for the remainder of our vacation. And we are thankful we did wishing we had more days left. Here are some Pros and Cons and then a novel for you to read with more details. Pros: Fast Checkin and parking for the rental carClean and manicured groundsEVERYONE was friendlyGood assortment of food from buffet style to sit down multi course. It was all deliciousRoom was clean with beautiful ocean viewFive pools (2 hot tubs, 2 big pools, and a beautiful infinity pool on the beach)Quiet in the morning with music and games going on in the afternoon and then quiet again around the pool. Good music playing. Beautiful beach that goes on foreverBeautiful sunrises every morningVenders on the beach for easy shoppingClean towels that can be easily exchanged on the pool. Mixed drinks were good (Miami Vice) and beer was cold served in sturdy plastic cups meant to be reused. Pool Grill had fresh food available Skybar has best view in Cabo. 360 degree view of the beach, ocean, and mountains. Many nice restaurants and shopping outside of resort. Cons:Vendors on the beach (if you aren't in the mood, they may annoy you. Just say no gracias or don't look at them and they won't bother you)The sushi restaurant was miserably hot. We had the first reservations and they just opened so it took awhile but did eventually cool down. Some areas on the grounds need repairBeach chairs are hard plastic Need more palapas in the beach for shadeCan't or shouldn't swim in the ocean due to dangerous currents. I was a life guard for 5 years in California and decided to take a swim in the ocean. If you are not an EXCELLENT swimmer, don't go out there. (There is a lifeguard in case you get stupid and brave)Summary: I gave the Barcelo 4/5 stars. Every thing was Very Good but lacked that extra umph to make it Excellent. I truly believe you get a great product for what you are paying and would definitely stay there again. Be sure to grab a coffee and head down to the beach to watch the sunrise over the Sea of Cortez. You won't regret it, I promise. And for the rest of the day, eat, drink and do what you came down there to do, Relax!
We loved our stay!! Here for a wedding and we have guests of all ages and there is definitely something for everyone. Staff is excellent, breakfast and buffet are delicious, pools hours are perfect. The whole resort is very sanitary and no garbage around, even on the beach. Dany is so accommodating!!
