1st time visit to Cabo & Barcelo-FABULOUS! LOVED IT!

Been to Mexico many times- Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Puerto Vallarta, Playa Maroma. Been to lots of fabulous hotels. Was a bit worried about going to Cabo since it was new territory for us. Family and I stayed at Barcelo and we loved it. While the hotel is not super fancy, it is very nice and the staff is exceptional. Everyone from front desk to entertainment crew, pool bartenders and waiters, restaurant staff (look out for Dennis at Las Olas-he is the best!) went out of their way to make our vacation amazing. This place is not party town, it is tranquil, relaxing, and the beach is beautiful. While you may not be able to swim, the days we were there the waves were out of this world spectacular. Worth just sitting down and watching the ocean waves with a great drink from the bar! Breakfasts at Las Olas every morning were yummy with marvelous views of the beach and great ocean breezes. We enjoyed the Sushi, Mexican, and Seafood restaurant. All 3 were delicious and again, the staff was spectacular. (Jesus @ Sushi and Roberto @ Mexican & Seafood will take good care of you!) My boys (19 &21) loved hanging out at the many different pools and at the Sky Bar (at the hotel) with terrific views of Cabo. My boys loved the hotel so much they did not want to leave to go to another beach for para-sailing, fishing, etc. Rest assured, whether you are going on a couples weekend get-away or a family vacation you will love Barcelo Gran Faro. We will be back next summer!

Juan Alvarez 😊

I love the care the staff takes of their guest. Mr.Alvarez is the manager at Las Olas which is the buffet. Being pregnant, I became ill and Mr. Alvarez and his staff brought me soup and a cool towel. They monitored my very closely and I really appreciate that. Overall the hotel is beautiful and anyone that comes here should have a great experience. I sure did!

AMAZING

Traveled here for 5 days, currently on my fourth and wishing I could stay the rest of my life! GREAT food, wonderful staff, relaxing spa, fantastic drinks, fun activities for the entire family, and the view is absolutely mesmerizing/out of this world. Again my only issue is that I can't stay longer!Richard helped us make guacamole and had us at the pool all day! Time flies when you're having fun 😉

My best friend birthday vacation 7-5 to 7-10

the only thing good about this Resort is the view the pool and parts of the food available in certain restaurants or what not but the mama we checked in their issues we had issues with checking we were told 20 minutes so we then went to speak to the gentleman available concerning excursions and stuff then that took about 30 to 45 minutes and when went back to check in and we're told another 20 minutes with no explanation I don't think the young ladies at the front desk can read much English none of welcoming instructions were completed we were supposed to have champagne with wine glasses are welcome letter also weird robes and slippers in the room none of that was done they didn't acknowledge my best friend's birthday until after we spoke to the manager meme we were denied dinner reservations every night pretty much except for the last night we were going to be there so we talk to the manager about that she made preparations for us to have dinner at that point and the sad part about it is and most confusing was dinner when we were there in the time slot that they told us with no longer available it was completely empty like there was no people in the chairs or having dinner at that time slot so that was really confusing we had to constantly call about towels being replaced when housekeeping came in our snack bar was not refilled every day the room smelled of mold the bathroom had mold on the walls above the shower and so was just sent continued issue and problem I would not recommend this Resort for anybody and this Resort is not convenient to the marina or the mall so I would recommend you stay in San Lucas as supposed to send Jose which this Resort is located a customer service here is extremely rude and unprofessional and it's just not a good first time experience for an all-inclusive at all I would not recommend don't even waste or spend the money I'm in the process of contacting corporate to see if I can get any money back because it does not look up to par for the amount of money that I paid

"If you like to swim on the beach please do not spend your money "

When you book the hotel it says check in at 3 a clock ! No we went there at 1:30 but the time we check in was 3:30 I asked the lady at front desk I thought it was 3a clock to check in her answer I'm sorry your room isn't ready yet ! Finally we check in one room was ready the other one we had to wait , when we went to resort on of the employees took our luggage , I will bring them at your room he said , when I went to front desk to check for the second room I asked the same guy what happens to my luggage oh I will bring them up , 40 minutes latter I had to call the front desk and ask again for my luggage ! If you like the beach please do not spend your money to go at this resort or any of the resort at San Jose you can't swim at the beach I wish I knew that before I booked ! The food was good the place is clean , staff was nice very friendly !
