Our Opinion

A spectacular property located in a secluded area south of Puerto Vallarta. Being awarded the prestigious AAA Four Diamond Award speaks for itself. The family and couple oriented Barcelo Puerto Vallarta offers excellent restaurants, great service and a nice pool area. When the tide is in there is no beach. A nice quiet, alternative location from the popular Riviera Nayarit and Hotel Zone. Formerly the Barcelo La Jolla de Mismaloya.


Overview

This superior all suite hotel sits on Mismaloya Bay amidst a backdrop of tropical mountain rainforests. On a small secluded beach, the Barcelo Puerto Vallarta is an elegant, all-inclusive Mexican-style resort. It offers 316 comfortable suites with excellent service, leisure, history, beautiful scenery, exuberant flora and privacy. Relax on your vacation and pamper yourself in the hotel spa, catch some rays at one of the hotel pools or take time out to practice your favourite water sport. Hotel Barcelo Puerto Vallarta was awarded the prestigious AAA Four Diamond Award in 2009.

Location: Nested between the Pacific Ocean and it's own tranquil secluded beach, 20 minutes from downtown Puerto Vallarta and 35 minutes from the airport.

Accommodating and attentive service.

Each day we were greeted with a smile and by your staff. The dining and restaurant personnel were very pleasant. we notice Magali Rodriguez, Luz Diaz, Leticia Cruz and Cesar Castro had coffee in hand ready to serve. All hard workers. It was our first time to this resort.

A great getaway!

I've stayed at this Barcelo five times in the past four years. So, obviously it has been one of my favorite vacation spots!Pros:- Spacious, beautiful suites- Staff is friendly and helpful- Buffet food is great!- Enough activities to keep you busy- Tony's restaurant is just across the street. You'll want to go there, their food is outstanding! Cons:- It's quite a trek into Puerto Vallarta (although that's also a pro for me since I like to travel away from hotel zones)- Needed to make reservations for the a la carte restaurants

Could have been better

I had previously stayed at the Barceló property in Cabo San Lucas and loved it. This hotel is very, very nice. The food is excellent and the grounds are kept immaculate. It is a bit different from the Cabo property. We upgraded and paid for premium status and we found the concierge in the premium lounge not nearly as helpful as in Cabo. I wanted to exchange currency and I was told it was $100.00 maximum. I had other issues with the premium concierge as well. Most hotel guests were from the surrounding areas and were local. We did not meet any other American guests but we did meet some Canadians. Most of the hotel staff that deals with guests speak good English. There were many families with children and they had a designated children's pool which was nice. We found the maid in our room when we had the Do not disturb sign up. We reported it to management and heard nothing back from them. It is a 45 minutes from the airport and there is nothing within walking distance from the hotel. The Spa Services and women that work in the spa are top class and professional. Wireless access is free when you pay for the premium upgrade but it is only available on the ground floor by the pool. One employee said the wireless would be upgraded in the coming months.

Great for the price

I stayed for 3 nights and had a blast. The property is kept very clean, all the staff I encountered were very nice. I didn't feel like the place was overcrowded and there was always space on the beach with chairs, it was difficult getting umbrellas but we didn't really care for them. The beach was kept very clean, it is adjacent to a public beach, we did see some jelly fish but they were on the public beach and not the private beach, I also recall signs that said there are jellyfish if you leave the private beach. We enjoyed the food at the buffet and the snack bar, we also had a chance to eat at the Japanese restaurant and that was pretty good. We do wish there was more communication about the daily activities, some activities were cancelled without notice. All in all we had a great time, for the price point we got more than what we paid in my opinion. Last thing we didn't like was the '$500 resort credit' it's not a credit at all, they give you discounts on different services, so you don't get to credit any amount towards those services it's a fixed discount. For example if a massage is $100 they might give you 20% discount that 20% comes out of the $500 and your left with $480 but you have to pay the $80 for the massage.
