Our Opinion

The Barcelo Karmina is an excellent 4.5 star resort with quality cuisine, large rooms and a great entertainment team. Everything at this resort is above par, from the attentive service to the impressive pool area. All the suites are spacious with lovely bathrooms. If it's in the budget, upgrade to a Master Suite with a plunge pool. The resort is wheelchair accessible. This hotel is great for weddings and honeymoons. The Barcelo Karmina is definitely one of our top recommendations for an all inclusive vacation in Manzanillo.


Overview
From the brilliant-green tropical gardens, down to the golden-sand beach and descending into the slate blue water of the Pacific Ocean, the scenery offered at the Barcelo Karmina Hotel is sure to awaken your senses. This five-star all-suite hotel is one of the best values for a luxurious family vacation to Manzanillo. Exclusive in its ambiance and set on the Las Hadas peninsula offering a private cove beach and adjacent to the Mantarraya golf course.

Location: On a nice stretch of beach next to Santiago Beach and close to the marina. Approximately 25 minutes to downtown Manzanillo and 30 minutes from the airport.

An Oasis in Manzanillo

Manzanillo Colima Mexico is not my favorite place in Mexico but when I needed to visit Manzanillo to attend some Customs Issue I stayed in this hotel that belongs to the Spain Group that offers "All Inclusive" and my surprise was that this Hotel complies good level of expectations in service, clean rooms, beautiful gardens, swimming pools, etc. I had the chance to pay for an "upgrade" to drink premium labels, to have access to their lounge, mini bar with free drinks included, room service, etc. They have options of "International Restaurants" but you have to book in advance your table for dinner. In my opinion they have to work to improve their food menu because is not the best.

Business and family

Where do I start, moved rooms 3 times, poor front desk service but Jessica helped smooth the final move. Very disappointed and recommend by the company. First room had blood on bed and broken coffee table. Second room wasn't suitable for the family, third room had damp smell, stains on sofa and mould on picture frames. Final move thanks to Jessica was great and room was clean and not damp.Food at buffet was consistently good, service was variable. The Japanese Resturant wasn't great and far off being authentic. Beach and pools are lovely for the family. Staff are great around the complex. Front desk staff need to be better prepared for dealing with customers and require customer service training. Tried to speak to the front staff at 06h50 as I was refused entry to the buffet for breakfast as they only open at 07h00. Tried to explain I needed to leave early for work - no chance. Went to front desk - fast asleep and tried to wake him but would not stir from his deep slumber! It would have been funny if I hadn't had to go to work.If you expect 5 stars you will be very disappointed, it's more 3 to 4 star and needs work on the rooms.

We will be back

We had a spring break vacation at Barcelo Karmina for our family of four. We loved it. Food was incredible, rooms were large and comfortable. I recommend paying the extra and booking an ocean view, sitting on the deck watching the waves and the beach was part of the experience. Lots of activities for the kids, nightly entertainment, and safe, secure grounds that made it comfortable to send the kids off on their own. The enclosed beach was perfect for kids to wade in and safe from the crazy surf - and it was easy to ask staff to let us out the gate to the main public beach for walks. We loved it, we will go again!

Barcelo Karmina Manzanillo

This place called Barcelo Karmina is not a 4 diamond AAA recognition resort. I have never been to a hotel so mismanaged. I reserved a 2 night stay for August 8 thru 10 2017. I paid for premium level. On my arrival my family and I where not greeted. I ask for the premium level checking. I had to wait for 15 minutes only one hotel representive at premium level to check in guess and this is a 324 luxury room hotel. The rooms are out dated, the safe was not bolted down or secured, the air conditioning was not working properly, the hygiene of the bathroom is terrible, clog sinks, dirty showers with mildew. Now let's head out to the pool area, workers use pool water to clean the patio chairs and tables that guess use to lay on and sun bathe. Pool is not check for it's ph balance, the maintenance is terrible lots of safety hazards, inside pool lights are not secured with screws, they are using plastic zip ties to hold lamps secure. Restaurants are not great. Table cloths are stained and dirty, food is not 4 diamond quality. Service is terrible. This hotel need to reorganize and trained everyone from the bell boy to Management. I spoke to management the first night I was there and explain that the hotel is not up to the standards it should be. I'm include photos that I took for the only 2 nights I stayed. I will not stay at any Barcelo hotels.
