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.

Hotel needs updating but overall good experience

Room fan did not work and coffee makers were not working properly. These things were not fixed, even after bringing the issues up with staff. Other than that the stay was great. The staff was friendly and helpful. Beautiful location!! Would return, with hopes that the hotel room issues are resolved.

27th Anniversary Celebration

Our 27th wedding anniversary trip to Puerto Vallarta was wonderful. Beginning to end! We stayed at the Barcelo Resort. Upon arriving at the Barcelo Resort, We were greeted with a Strawberry daiquiri while we waited to be checked in. We were able to check in early without an additional cost. Our suite was beautiful. As we walked in the door we had a door knob hanger which congratulated us on our anniversary. Entering the bedroom, there was a swan with tropical flowers on the king size bed. A very nice touch! We began our vacation with a romantic breakfast served on our private balcony and a wonderful couples massage. The employees were helpful and very kind. We made reservations for our excursions with Vallarta Adventures. Cesar Chavez went above and beyond what we expected! He was able to accommodate all the tours we wanted. We chose The City Tour, Las Marietta's, Las Calettas & Rythm Of The Night show. We also got 2 of the excursions free! We love the food. The only complaint we had was the fact that men are required to wear slacks for dining. It is a very humid climate & my husband found it very uncomfortable. We loved the bars. Antonio was knowledgeable and entertaining! He recommended excursions and was so personable. My husband was able to try different tequilas & i loved the tequila sunrises that he made. We did have a favorite snack. I must say that Esmeralda at the taco bar is a gem! My husband absolutely loved the fact that She made the tortillas fresh when you ordered it. We visited her daily. And joked that she was his girlfriend in Mexico! We also enjoyed the steak dining. They presented us with special drinks and an "anniversary cake". It was a wonderful surprise. When it came time to leave, we checked out & stuck around until it was time to go to the airport. We headed to the taco bar for one last visit with Esmeralda. She indulged us with a few pictures. Again, she is just adorable! Overall our stay at the Barcelo Resort was just wonderful!
