This restaurant had excellent food. The waiters and waitresses were so very kind and helpful. Angelica Fonseca and Ramon helped us with our meals each night. They were both so very courteous and helpful. They treated us as family.

This was our first Christmas getaway, and my husband's first trip out of the country. We travelled with an adult son and daughter-in-law. Barcelo was very nice, the weather was perfect and we had a great time. The only problem we had was trying to figure out the ticketing process to get a cab from the airport to the hotel....

Usually visiting the Mayan Riviera side of Mexico we were pleasantly surprised how much we loved the area. The Barcelo is tucked away from town and has a relaxed atmosphere.
