If only the food wasn’t terrible...
The food was terrible. Like bad school cafeteria food at all three meals. And very similar every day. For the snacks by the pool, there would be a huge line as soon as they set it out, then by the time I’d get to the front, there would be like 7 French fries left and some questionable looking fruit. Not joking. My husband and I just started going to town to eat. Other than that, the staff was friendly, rooms were clean beach beautiful, pool great. But would never go back b/c of the food.

Very Good8.0
food was good and probably helped to improve overall perception. Room good sized but smelly. Premises kind of old but generally preserved. Nearby beach no so good.

Dissapointing Barcelo Hotel
The hotel was very busy and they had not even changed the sheets from our room. There were blood stains from mosquitos smashed against the pillow. There were a lot of tiny ants around the room and in the bed. We requested the room changed but they mentioned that hotel was full. They also said they cannot do anything about the ants because it is a problem they have in the entire country. I purchased wifi for the whole stay and then I realized that wifi does not work in the room. There was only 1 ala carte restaurant which was pretty nice, I can say that this was the only really good thing in the hotel. There was only 1 buffet restaurant and food quality and variety was not good, and in peak hours it was overcrowded. We left nice shoes in the pool and they disappeared. This is the first time this happens to us in a supposedly nice and high end resort. The beach was public and people not from the hotel could go freely to take showers in the hotel area. They did not seem to be worried about this. Overall very disappointing Barceló Hotel. We have been in 4 different Barceló Hotels and this is the last time.
