Awesome!

I went into this trip not expecting much. I usually go Hilton every time I travel. I will say this Hotel Group and this particular hotel are outstanding. The room's were great. The bedding and sheets were Grade A. I was amazed that the Breakfast, lunch and dinner buffet was outstanding. Everything was clean, fresh and nicely presented. The salad bar was great and all the food was prepared nicely. The Chicken, beef and pork were literally what I would expect at a five star restaurant. It was amazing and especially to think they served more than 200 people at each meal. We upgraded to Premium and got a room facing the ocean. My only complaint is that the Pool seemed dirty ( really crowded) and the Jacuzzi was not hot at all, merely lukewarm. The beach is not swimmable. You can walk to a Superstore and restaurants and the entire area is safe and walkable. The spa is great and the ladies who work at the spa Licette and Elizabeth are excellent with massage therapy and booking appointment were easy. I wills stay here again. We booked transportation to and from airport with Hotel reservation. The concierge for premium guests were very helpful

Lovely vacation

My husband and our 2 daughters in their mid 20's spent 6 days at the Barcelo and were overall very pleased. We have all stayed at other all-inclusives. This resort was unique in that it was smaller than what we have experienced on other vacations. Pools were smaller, the infinity pool was our favorite. Music was low key and relaxing at the pool and we all loved the hot tub. There were only 2 restaurant choices but that was not a problem as the food in the buffet was always very good. The fish soup was my favorite-loaded with seafood. The salmon and prime rib were delicious. Almost everything was very good, amazing chefs! Drinks were good, good service from bartender/waiters.Our room was on the first floor which we liked. Our porch area overlooked the pool and was very quiet. Housekeeping did a good job. We had a later flight home and were able to use the hospitality room to clean up and change for our flight as check out was at noon. Front desk staff and servers were fine, not quite as friendly and accommodating as we have experienced at other resorts. The beach was very nice, clean, not crowded. Black flags were up (huge beautiful waves) so we were unable to spend much time in the sea. We were perfectly happy in the comfortable chairs close to the infinity pool overlooking the sea with perfect views of the beach, palm trees and mountains. The combination of spending quality time with our daughters and staying in a lovely resort made this a vacation to remember. We hope to return to Barcelo Gran Faro.

Great vacation!!

This vacation went even better than i had expected it to go. We stayed for 8 nights 9 days and loved it more each day. The room service was good and always clean. Fridge was restocked every day. The pools where heated and we spent alot of time in the jacuzzi in the evening. the entertainment staff was great , Ximena,Rod,Ricardo,DJ OS, Danny,and Jafet!! We played a lot of beach volleyball with them and water polo. Food was good, buffet always had steak which was delicious. Just make sure if you dont get premium that you go at 9 am to the lobby to make dinner reservations because they do book fast. We had italian a few times and sushi and both were delicious. Great service, very friendly staff and hard working bartenders. They always made sure you had a drink in your hand. Would definitely go back . make sure you take the time to wake up for the sunrise thou!! i watched it three times and it was breathtaking
