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.
Barceló provides a property which impresses with a nice design, goodseize pools and spacious well equipped rooms. The elevated view from the lobby level is marvelous. Everything is a little smaller than at the big resort chains, but this is not a disadvantageThe food in the main restaurant is very good with changing themes. Especially the chance to have fish, steaks or chicken freshly grilled is very much appreciated. Attractive is the seaside restaurant in the morning and for lunch with a beautiful view of the sea. La Gondola, the Italian restaurant provides excellent food and ambience.Unfortunately the ocean is not swimmable and you have to take a trip close to Cabo San Lucas to dive into the ocean. Chileno Beach is great.One unfortunate fact is that Wi-Fi is not for free. Up to 12 USD per day is not acceptable. This is not the standard you expect.If you travel for great evening entertainment you might be disappointed. A high volume Michael Jackson show alone with some local entertainment is not enough.
Upon arrival at the resort the appearance of the building is somewhat unusual as a tower reaches way up and one is reminded at an airport control tower. Much later we found out it contains a bar, Finishing off we wanted to take pictures from high above as the view is spectacular, only to be told it would be possible only after 6pm. We had quite a difficult time to convince somebody to let us up there in the morning because at 6pm it would be pitch dark. Remember it is January. The rooms are standard and clean, the furniture old an so is the building. The the coffee machine is located in the bathroom and that was o novelty to us. The food is average at best. On the positive side the resort location is ideal, the pools including an infinity pool are nice and so is the white sand and the endless beach.The staff is very accommodating and friendly. Compare to other Barcelo Resorts this one needs help.
Excellent hotel. We stayed here last minute after a flight cancellation around New Years. The hotel is beautiful. The decor is great. The room and bed are very comfortable. The rooms have a jacuzzi tub with doors that open allowing a view of the ocean. The food was good at the buffet. They had some excellent meat and seafood selections. Breakfast in the morning was very good with a terrific view on the beach of the sun coming up. All the food is well presented and constantly refreshed. The staff of the resort is very attentive and helpful. We look forward to our next trip to Cabo and staying at Barcelo!
It was my first time to Mexico and an All-inclusive resort. I loved the location – downtown San Jose Cabos was within walking distance (or a short bus ride) and there were things to do/visit right on the doorsteps of the resort. Los Cabos was a 40 min bus ride away. The beach and resort were not crowded, we enjoyed taking peaceful walks for 5 to 10 kms along the ocean front. The beach was clean and beautiful with the crashing of the waves. The resort lacks a nightclub and/or better evening entertainment. We were there over New Years Eve and the resort put on a fabulous event – the buffet was outstanding. My only comment would be to better organize how to send guests up to the buffet. i.e. calling table numbers vs announcing buffet was open and 500 guests making their way at the same time. The resort advertised daily yoga and water aerobics activities however the yoga was only offered 3 times and the water aerobics was offered twice during our 7 day stay. This was the same for the afternoon bingo around the pool. The resort grounds were beautifully kept and we felt safe. Would definitely recommend this resort to the slighter older group (50+ years) who want to enjoy a peaceful and relaxing vacation. We did not come across the younger party-hardy generation. I would go back.
Had a short stay with friends and we all enjoyed the hotel very much. Beautiful view of the hot tub, pool and beach from my balcony. Room was nice with tiled floors, ceiling fan with air conditioning, a stocked refrigerator with water, soft drinks and beer. At the front desk is a $35.00 US charge for a bracelet to drink premium alcohol. Beach bar with a DJ. Open air atrium bar near the buffet restaurant. Also a round bar enclosed with windows overlooking everything up on the 6th level. The food was good and employees were very polite. The hotel also had very good security. It's a very pretty place and I would enjoy staying there again.After reading a couple of unflattering reviews I suggest to those people to please keep small bills in your pocket and tip the employees for their kindness when staying at an all inclusive resort. They'd be surprised at the better service they received.
