Management has this property very very very understaffed. The wait staff is doing their very very best to serve clients but they are just simply out numbered by clients they need to hire more wait staff. The food was not that great I wouldn’t even say good and I’m not a picky eater neither is the rest of my family none of us really enjoyed the food. The beach in the ocean are awesome to look at but at this location very strong and powerful I did not recommend little children to get in or people with not so good swimming capabilities. The shower in the room was awesome! I have long thick hair and always struggle to be able to rinse my hair out in Mexico because of low water pressure but that was not a problem here at all. Another major dislike was that the mattresses have a plastic cover on them which makes it very hot for sleeping woke up every night sweating despite the AC being on. Do not like the reservation system for dinner I’ve been to other resorts that did not have a reservation system end it always seems to work out well even if you have to wait a little while no big deal you’re on vacation. All in all it was good for a short three day stay I’m glad I did not book it for my full 17 day trip. I would not return to Barcelo again.

Check in was very crowded, they didn't have enough people to serve everyone in a timely manner. I had to wait more than 2 hours for me to be in my room.

The hotel is set up where everything within the resort is very easy to get to. The staff at Barcelo were just amazing and i mean everyone! Braulio Lozano at the front desk was just exceptional when checking me in to my room. Very knowledgeable about the resort and the area of Hauctulco. I was hoping there was a deeper pool to swim in yes the ocean is right there but the current can get a little rough. Also the beds are very hard not that comfortable. I think it would be nice to have dance club1 or 2 nights a week at the theater , a bigger area to really dance. Club Jorango is really nice but i think people would love the club atmosphere just to change things up a little.

We lament reading that our buffet offer did not live up to your expectations as our professional Chefs strive to surprise our guests with a high standard gastronomy and the possibility to savor the best of the local cuisine as well as the finest international delights. Let me point out that in our La Tortuga buffet restaurant, we have dishes prepared with seafood. Thank you once again for making us your choice hotel and for your constructive critics, we certaily look forward to serving you again and to have the opportunity to exceed you expectations in a not too distant future. Best regards.

Beautiful location, a few hiccups

Hotel is in a superb spot by the sea, rooms are friendly and confortable, although they need some extra care on the window curtains, as well as the drains on the balcony, but those were addressed promptly by the staff.

Cons: The Hotel should be better kept and the staff should comply to our requests and delay construction until after 10 a.m.
To start, when we asked for a different room they said no because that's what we paid for. The curtain in the bathroom had a very large hole, and the bottom part of the curtain had mold because the tub drained very slowly. The toilet seat was also broken and the bathroom smelled so bad that they had to use so much air freshener to cancel to smell. Also some of the lights were burned out. One big problem was by 7 in the morning they were doing construction work remodeling the rooms above. We complained twice to change rooms, but they still refused to switch our rooms. If you wish to stay in this hotel, getting premium is your best bet; their rooms are better, the view of the bay are better, and the bathroom is better. The food was good, but it is not kept very hot. The pool is nice, but the filters are not kept on and the water is cloudy when it is packed with people and they kept just pouring and pouring bleach into the water. The trips are a nice bonus and you absolutely must take the trips to the town and the boat tours to the bays, but just avoid the oysters!

Absolutely beautiful! Exceeded my expectations.

My family and I had a great time. The only issue I had was with the young lady at guest services, she was no where near as friendly as every other staff member we encountered throughout the hotel. I went to make reservations for the Italian themed dinner which was full which was ok, so instead we made reservations for the Mexican themed dinner. The young woman seemed very annoyed and scratched through a couple of lines on my reservation and circled time and date. I only read what she circled not what she scratched out so I didn't read it. Turns out she meant to underline not scratch through and when we arrived to eat they said my son and husband could not enter because they didn't have pants on. At no point did the young lady tell me and needless to say we didn't eat there. At the very least she could've mentioned it and who on earth brings pants to the beach???? Also for one night my son lost wifi service and the concierge said my son tried to add another device with the same password! He only had one device which was his phone, we purchased wifi for each one of us. They didn't give us a partial refund! Also they never mentioned that we had to reserve beach chairs so we stood around for 30 min and shared 3 chairs between 5 of us!
