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.


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.

Not too bad but bring your fun

The resort is fine for families. The rooms are great. Entertainment is poor. Pools are good. The resort has a good base of things but it needs to be upgraded. Lots of food in the buffet but mostly Mexican food. You will find something to enjoy.

3.5 is accurate

The good: The rooms are very nice. Clean, updated, comfortable beds. Easy check in with Gustavo. The Buffet. Great pools. Quiet location. Staff mostly friendly and helpful. Very easy place to hang out comfortably for the week. The not so good: Specialty restaurants are very marginal. Booze is subpar and possibly watered down. The 500$ credit is a joke. Should be more forthcoming about what it really is. The skinny is that it's really pretty nice for the price you pay. Very reasonable. If you don't expect to get 5 star food and service you won't be disappointed. Take the ATV tour in Mislamoya. They show you a great time. The La Jolla boat at the beach is a great guide for snorkeling. Tony's La Choza is steps away and offers a special dinner. Use the bus to get downtown at least once for a fun ride.

When you think of a vacation you expect for there to be A/C and proper electrical appliances, especially when your in Puerto Vallarta!!! Coming in to the hotel there was no A/C in lobby, being in Puerto Vallarta its very humid and hot. There was no wifi included the hotel rooms they made you pay separately if you didn't get a specific package deal. Entering the rooms our hallway lights didn't work, the A/C didn't work, the mini fridge didn't keep the beverages cold, and the tv was very staticky. When we called down to tell them about what was going on they would reply to us with they will be on it, we stayed for 4 days and it was never fixed!!! The bathroom toilets didn't flush, so we had to deal with the stench and they never fixed it!!! There wasn't a lot of options when it came to the buffet and snack bars. The pool was dirty and looked like it's never cleaned. Some of the staff were nice but others had a grumpy and rude attitude. Bed sheets were changed, my little sister had a stain in her sheets that was never removed. My parents bed was full of sand and dirt, even after housekeeping came to clean the rooms!!!! Most guests that would come and visit had stuck up attitudes and were rude!!! The elevators would work and then stop working. Overall had a horrible experience in the hotel but outside the hotel it was way better. Don't stay here unless you want horrible service!

This resort was a little far out of town, but it was worth the drive because the beach was beautiful. The resort was nice and the food was very good. There wasn't a lot of activities like some resorts offer such as a beach party, pool activities, or a night club. They did have nightly shows.

  • nickkasikk : Las Vegas, Nevada

Overall the property is beautiful, and well kept for the age. We experienced power outages due to weather... But that was not the fault of the resort, and they were restored quickly. The food was quite sub-par. Very disappointed in the food quality, and variety
