The Royal Club restaurant was spectacular. The Staff offered excellent service and the food was delicious. Melvin, George, Sylvester, Elana and the rest of the staff went out of their way to make us comfortable.

Just returned from a four night stay in this clean, comfortable and friendly resort. Our room had a pool and beach view balcony. There were available beach toys and activities at the pool. The nightly shows were enjoyable. The breakfast and lunch buffets had lots of variety. We went to the seafood, Italian, Mexican and Asian specialty restaurants for dinner,...

We went here for our honeymoon last week. Was a great location! Beach was clean and beautiful! The food was great except I wish there were places to grab a quick sandwich other than going to the buffet. We had a great time and the entertainment each night they provided was great! The rooms were always clean and everyone was...

Going downhill fast with Barcelo takeover. Food and service not as good. Always running out of choice alcohol at pool bar. Hired a lot of young people (not as attentive or friendly) as the old timers that they are forcing to retire at 65. Really disappointed. Thinking of selling after going there for 14 years Sad😂😂😂

Barcelo was a wonderful place to stay for our vacation (couple's vacation). I don't think I will go back to not doing an all-inclusive resort for future vacations. The food was good and service was always very good. The beach was very relaxing and well kept, you could see the staff cleaning the pool area every night and early in...

This is the first time I'm writing a review but I think this resort deserves it. The rooms are very clean and spacious so beautiful. I would recommend to ask for pool view on a high floor 5th or 6th. A special thank you will go to Natalia at the guest services she helped us with all our dinners and...

This restaurant had such friendly staff. Loved Edgard- cute, personable and a good selfie picture taker. Shomara was great, patient, and made sure we had exactly what we needed. Paris made the greatest strawberry Margaritas!! The Tres Leche Cake was fabulous. They were very gracious when we made a mistake and broke the potted vase. We had a great time!!
