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.
Flew from Edmonton to Manzanillo with Sunwing vacations. The Sunwing representative that takes you from the airport to the resort is hilarious so he'll have you cracking up the entire bus ride, which is about 20-25 minutes long. Once you reach the resort, you are greeted with a fruity drink. Check-in at the hotel is not at the front desk but downstairs in a private room, which makes the entire process much more efficient. Once you're checked-in, you go back upstairs and the bellboys help out all the guests with their luggages to their respective rooms. The rooms are great, spacious, and always very clean. The food is amazing at the buffet. They always provide a variety of options. If someone has a birthday, the buffet staff is so accommodating with having a piece of cake and candle ready and then serenade the person by singing "Happy Birthday" in English and also in Spanish. The a la carte restaurants are great and definitely worth a try! The bartenders around the resort are quick and make great drinks. The entire resort grounds are always clean and you can always find a spot to just relax. Sarah at the towel hut is great with explaining the different water activities. Would recommend doing the snorkelling in the morning. It's around 3 hours long but time really flies by and you get to see such great scenery along the way. We went with Alfredo and he was so entertaining and informative. The entertainment crew during the day is fabulous. They are always so interactive with the guests and encourage to participate in various activities around the pool and the beach, particularly Yair with encouraging you to play beach volleyball. The evening shows are also great and vary nightly. Overall, would highly recommend this resort if you would like to have a wonderful time!
Took my two sons (24,and 16) had an excellent time there were things for both to do also they are picky eaters and no complaints at all. Place was clean lots of room in our suite and throughout the hotel pool area was excellent everything went great! Even met the general manager a Spanish gentleman and his wife they were extremely welcoming and concerned that we were all having a good holiday. I am so impressed with my holiday in January that I decided to surprise my wife for valentine ‘s day with another holiday there on March 4th
Great hotel and amazing staff, rooms were big and very clean. The buffet was fantastic always fresh and great selection. Adult pool was nice to have for a little quiet time away from the kids. Not the best beach area but I’m a pool type of person. I would definitely stay here again.

Second trip to Manzanillo and won't be the last. really nice place. Sunwing rep Miguel (Mexican Magic Mike) was very helpful, Spanish lessons and excursion suggestions. Wait staff at restaurants and pools was excellent. Daniel must walk 100 km per day to keep his thirsty customers hydrated. Victor worked the adult pool and was fortunate to have a bar closer to his customers. Vidal at the buffet always kept my wine glass full. Our maid "Sol" also is worth mentioning as our room was kept immaculate in spite of our efforts to the contrary. We enjoyed the food at the buffet more so than the ala carte restaurant's. Alberta steak eaters will be disappointed by the Mexican beef offerings but the fish is great.
