We stayed at the Barcelo in Ixtapa, Nov. 18-25, 2008 and we absolutely loved it!! The staff was friendly and helpful and more than accommodating of our attempts at speaking Spanish. Food was good, and the pool area, entertainment and drinks were great!

My family and I had a great time. The weather was perfect. I have been on a winter vacation about twenty times and this was the nicest beach I have ever been on. Not so much as a pebble to step on! Smooth sand throughout. The waves were perfect. Strong enough to have fun (boogie board, body surf) but not...

Great resort for families with younger children, but the music sucked (geared towards older Mexicans and piano bar fans), a better music mix and more English language evening action would help. There is no fun or night action for adults who love to party! The only way out is: Senior Frogs, where there were signs of extacy drug use visible....

We stayed 2 weeks at the Barcelo Ixtapa, leaving Dec. 13th. Overall was a very nice stay. Staff overall were very nice, but many obviously, including in the front desk, did not understand English very well at all. Some pretend to know what your asking. Biggest complaint was that I've read on a few travel sites, that the Barcelo Ixtapa...

This hotel was very accomodating to our needs. It's location is ideal. Just a short walk across the street to the markets, shopping and restaurants. The food was excellent, along with the service that we received. The pool and pool bar was great and there was a lot to do right on the hotel premise. Would definitely stay there again.

The resort was good. The location was excellent and had a nice beach and pool area. Like most Barcelo's the food was sub par. The grill was the best thing there and the ala carte was good .
