A well maintained property with a large helpful staff that does everything in their power to assure you have a comfortable stay. Food service in both the main dining room and the sports bar was excellent. Located in a safe area including many restaurant options. We will definitely stay at this property for all our future high school reunion visits.

Amazing, will always stay here when in San Salvador, El Salvador. All staff were incredible. I was there with my family for sad circumstances and all staff cared and treated us like family. The hotel drivers were great, they were polite and safe drivers. Thank you Moises and all drivers for providing excellent first class service!!!

Amazing Hotel

I have stay at the Barcelo for more than 10 years , when It was the Hilton. All, I can say that this place is amazing, great customer service, clean, price wise for what you get it's is very reasonable. The amenities offer at the Barcelo are great. For me, what makes me come back to Thai hotel is the the way the staff treats me- like a VIP. They treat everyone the same way and they are always asking you if you need anything. The excellent service come from the top to the person who clean your room. I would give this place a A+
