Great stay!!!

What a wonderful place to stay! This was our second year there, and, hopefully, won't be our last! We were sad to leave! The staff was all very efficient and friendly, happy to help me improve on my small amount of Spanish, though they all had great English skills! The food is great! They change their evening buffet every night, and, in actuality, I would rather eat at the buffet than the Al a Carte restaurants. They are fine, but there's just so much more selection at the buffet. Breakfasts were wonderful, too. We never were hungry at lunch, so I can't comment on the lunch buffets, but I'm sure they were equally as good! The grounds are immaculate and beautiful! I'm not a spa person, but my friend is and said the massages are to die for! My only complaint is that they ran out of Merlot, so I had to drink Cab Sauv!!! lol

Pleasantly Surprised!

For a 3.5 star all-inclusive, I was surprised by this hotel! The buffet was delicious (but room service food was terrible). Sky bar was fun. Beach was very nice (you can't swim here, of course, as is usual for Cabo) - soft sand, very wide. Room was spacious and wifi worked well. Bathroom felt a little icky with no tub and bad lighting. Minibar was refreshed daily and room was cleaned well. Balcony is spacious and ocean views are prominent. The swim-up bar is in the pool farthest away form the ocean which I didn't like, but there was some drink service at the other pools that seemed sporadic. You have t sign towels in and out which is annoying, but there are no towel cards. Premium liquor is for Club Premium guests only and is only at the lobby bar FYI.We were there for a wedding and although there were tons of gawkers during the ceremony, the reception was very private and super cool. They did a curtain o hanging string lights all the way around the reception area and had a bonfire out next to it . It was a great setting complete with dance floor sitting on the sand.

  • Tom V :
Rude Staff, Bad Food and Terrible Service

I was extremely excited to stay at my first all inclusive resort in Mexico. After having spoken with several friends who have stayed at other all-inclusive resort in Cabo San Lucas and the surrounding area, I had high expectations of great food, drinks and service. However- Barcelo Gran Faro was the OPPOSITE of these expectations. From the second we stepped on the resort, the staff was unfriendly, management closed off specific areas of the resort to our group, maid-service only cleaned our room once in seven days, and it was impossible to get reservations at the restaurants (the only place where the food was edible).Additionally, I felt extremely unsafe while on the property. It felt like people were constantly watching my group. I would avoid with your family at all costs.

  • Deb N :
Mexican vacation

We had a great family vacation. Ingrid at the concierge desk worked her magic for a great birthday dinner. Rooms, pools and restaurant were clean. Very good food; nice variety. Jared helped secure a fun excision into Cabo. Smaller size of the resort caters to small groups. Missed most of the college spring break shenanigans. Would return and recommend to family and friends.
