Our Opinion
Beautiful hotel with excellent food, numerous restaurants,�kids club, and a night club and sushi bar overlooking�the ocean from high above in their lookout tower. The beach is not swimmable but they�have a seawater infinity pool and hammocks to relax in.

Barcelo Grand Faro is a beachfront property located on the Gulf of California, offering a picture perfect romantic setting. This spectacular Luxury All Inclusive resort boasts a nightclub located at the top of the Lighthouse Bar that provides impressive views of the ocean and a Sushi bar on the below level. Enjoyment and fun for all!

Location: 15 min walk into the town of San Jose del Cabo, 45 min drive to Cabo San Lucas, 20 min drive from the airport.

We keep returning to the Barcelo, and this is why. The clean, spacious, comfortable rooms. The food and drinks are all top notch. The impeccably maintained grounds. But most of all, it's the friendly, hard working staff that keeps us coming back. You can enjoy a drink in the lobby bar looking out to sea with a nice ocean breeze, relax by the pool, or take a walk on the endless beach. Have an afternoon refreshment on your veranda and then a leisurely dinner at Las Jicamas or Gondola. All in all, just a great way to get some R&R. We would like to mention a few of the staff that made our trip special. Luis and Yennifer in the Premium Lounge, Antonio by the pool, Luis in Gondola/Jicamas (who BTW makes a great flaming coffee}, and Mari, Karen, and Norma in Las Olas. Also, especially Deniss Gonzalez in the restaurants and Lorena Corona at the front desk. Thank you all, management and staff, for making the Barcelo our home away from home.

Barcelo is so amazing. The food, the scenery, the drinks, the service, and the people are beautiful! Lots of pool and activities to do. The resort is right on the beach and so gorgeous. Ricardo is the best!

Barcelo gran faro - San Jose del Cabo

We spent 4 nights / 5 days in this Hotel with a package flight/all inclusive hotel. The hotel is well located on the beach and our room was with ocean view, which is one grade better than the low end. The room is space with 2 full bed, balcony, ac, shower, tv, mini bar. Internet was available but with extra charge which is a pity.There are 3 swimming pools which include one with sea water. Equipments are clean and in good condition. The beach is large with clear sand but you can't swim due to security.There is an international buffet restaurant which is good and located on the sea front, 3 specialty restaurants (sushi bar at the faro, 50m high, Mexican, Italian, sea food). The sushi bar is not good at all as the materials are low quality. The other restaurants are ok. Staff are polite and friendly, room cleaning service is not at high level as they forgot to fulfill our room with towels, coffee, water twice over 4.However in general this is a very good hotel. We plan to come back whenever there is a good package.Eric&Vicky

first time here, probably last time

check in can be tricky if you are in the premium signs telling where you to check in...I knew we didn't go to the main check in but couldn't see where we went so had to grab the porter and have him take us...after finding where to check in it was easy and fast and off to our room....We had up graded to beach front not get the premium club but for the view so imagine our dismay when went to the balcony and all we saw was a big brown roof in front us....we were woke very early the next morning by the smell of sausages and dishes clanking..not happy...went to see about switching rooms and they did accomodate us..kinda....moved us away from kitchen but to ground our very expensive view was of a concrete slab with sun loungers..they told us no other rooms available.....we paid well over $1000.00 to have a view we didn't get. other than view room was OK...very spacious and lots of drawers and hangers...Bed was firm and we like was made up early everyday but 1..did have a problem getting pool towels in our room, usually had to wait for them to bring after we called....had turn down service 1 night...The AC was the noisiest we have ever come across..I wear hearing aids but not at night and I could hear the AC all night long..not at all restfull.We found the food very good everywhere we and tasty and sooo many service staff were always polite and accommodating. In the evening buffet we had some trouble being able to sit outside to enjoy our meal..most of the outdoor tables were very big and they didn't like to sit just 2 people at them even though no one else was at them..well I didn't like sitting indoors with the AC blowing on me..towards the end of our stay they did move some of the bigger tables out and put smaller ones in their place..The infinity pool was not working properly at all..water was not flowing our the edge and it was really scummy as a result..lots of partiers didn't seem to mind that but it looked kinda gross, and yes I did mention it to the lady at the premium club counter..the other pools were fine and kept clean,,A BIG problem is they do NOT have enough chairs for all the guests and not nearly enough umbrellas..the hotel was far from full while we were there and and there was still a shortage of chairs....this brings the value of the hotel considerably...service around the pools and in the lounge was always very very good..I really can't say enough about how hard the employees at this resort work..we saw them put up with drunken foolishness and rudeness and they kept smiling and trying..great job by all of them..The grounds were clean and well manicured, an steady on going process..our biggest disappointment was our room was so not worth the money we paid..unless you can be guaranteed of a room on a higher floor away from the kitchen I would strongly advise against paying the extra for a beach front room. The staff could make this a 5 star resort with help from management. Beach front means that!!!!!more loungers and shade umbrellas!!!!!!!and stay on top of things like the pools!!!!!!!mostly because of our room view and loud AC is why we will not return here..could be a jewel, but it's not...for a Barcelo I was disappointed.

great, quick getaway, clean, good service and food

We upgraded to the premium level and had an ocean front room. We had our choice of a corner room with a tub, over looking both the ocean and the hotel pool, or a room that was only an ocean view, with no tub. We took the latter because we didn't want to hear the music and people by the pool, and our view was fantastic! 4th floor too. I would suggest making sure you don't get a room directly over the buffet dining area, I could hear the music and clanking of silverware and dishes which I didn't love. Everything was great here, the only thing that was a drawback was some construction going on at the front of the hotel... jackhammering to be clear. We couldn't hear it in our room, and it was mostly drowned out down by the pool, but anytime we went to the front of the hotel, it was obnoxious.The food was really good, and the staff was very courteous and helpful. our room was always made up very nicely, and they came back and did turn down service as well. We would stay here again, requesting an ocean view again, maybe on the opposite side of the buffet so it isn't an issue. All in all, great trip.
