“Fab family holiday!”
Reviewed 4 August 2012

Travelled with another family - 9 of us in all!
Ages of children - 2.5-6.5
Really enjoyed our week there, would consider visiting again and investigating other Barcelo hotels!

Pros
Rooms - quiet, clean, spacious
Restaurant - wide choice, re-stocked often, efficient staff
Location - short walk to beach past resort aqua-park and children's park
Entertainment - children loved daily mini-disco and evening entertainment
Site - although at capacity, pleasantly busy, didn't feel too crowded

Cons
Rooms - unable to lock room doors from inside; initially un-nerving with wandering toddlers, unable to sit and chat on neighbouring balconies (led to believe we could)
Restaurant - meals started late 19.30 however got used to this
Cost - drinks expensive

I stayed at the Barcelo Pueblo for 7 nights all inclusive with my boyfriend in early July. We had an absolutely wonderful holiday.

The service is amazing, the food was faultless and the facilities at the hotel were much better than expected. We were slightly worried after reading some reviews about the Barcelo Pueblo's food being "repetative" but this was not true. (must have been some extremely fussy people who said that!) The food was fresh everyday with waiters and waitresses refreshing the food every 5 minutes, the food was also varied with your standard "english" type food and a lot of fresh menorcan cuisine (fresh fish, stews, gizpachio etc..). Thomas Cook were very helpful and all in all we had a fantastic holiday. My boyfriend and I would definitely come here again, possibly for 10 days next time!!

The Spa is well worth a visit, especially if like us you go on an offer day! 15 euros for both myself and my boyfriend for 90 mins in spa (usually 15 euros each).

The only slight downfall (if you can call this a downfall) would be thT perhaps in later summer months (mid july and august) I could imagine that the pool area would become very crowded with children and families. This would not bother us but I know some couples prefer peace and tranquility.

A perfect hotel in a perfect destination! 10/10.

Room Tip: Ask for first floor or above as I can imagine a ground floor room being noisy and close to the pool.

Reviewed 23 July 2012

Just returned from a ten day all inclusive stay in a family suite.
Found the staff to be extremely unhelpful, bordering on rude for the duration of our stay.
Be warned, all inclusive really is not all inclusive in this resort with everything having hidden costs.
The hotel suite was very clean but it may as well be open plan with all of the other residents....the walls are paper thin!
The restaurant caters for the masses, so wear your crash helmet, shoulder pads and any other protective clothing you have available and brace yourself for the scrum.
There's no way to escape the noise of the daily activities around the pools, so head to the beach if you fancy relaxing.
As a family of five, a ten day break with the all inclusive option in a family suite is rather expensive and I would highly recommend to any potential holiday makers to look elsewhere.

Room Tip: Go to another hotel.

Just returned from a fantastic holiday with our 1 year old and 8 year old. This hotel met all of our expectations and more. Staff were very friendly and helpful and everywhere was extremely clean. We stayed in a family suite which was very spacious and had 2 bathrooms which was helpfull. The rooms had air con which was essential with the kids and a fridge. The only downside to the rooms were that there was alot of sharp corners on furniture at toddlers head height. Beach was really clean and only A 4 or 5 minute walk to the beach which had lifeguards on duty. The restaurant was set out well and the food was good with plenty of choice for every one.
We went half board which was fine but the drinks were expensive a small coke was 2.10 and a gin and tonic was about 5 euros.
A great holiday and defiantly worth spending that little bit more than other hotels in the area, we will visit again.
