grounds

the grounds are a real killer if you have a walking or breathing issue. They all slope down to the pool and beach. So, you have to walk up hill o get back to the rooms. I have COPD so this was a challenge. If I was in good shape I would go back to this location in a heart beat. It really was amazing. However, with my medical problems I will not be returning.

Very Nice Resort

Cons: No free Internet, Noisy, restaurant shut down arbitrarily
Overall the resort was good. It is very family oriented and had lots of children there. A little noisy if you are going for quiet time but there are areas around the pools to get away from it a little bit. The staff in the restaurants were excellent. Very attentive and pleasant as well as the front desk people. If your package included resort credits, don't count on getting them. I was told I would have $525 to use on the resort. When I enquired about them, they said they had run and out didn't have any more. To keep checking back and see if they showed up. I was told that if they didn't show by the end of my visit that I would be credited them the next time I stayed at a Barcelo resort. Not great as I had budgetted to use them in the spa etc. Then as the week went on I was told that it was more like a discount card and could only be used on certain things. It was becoming quite apparent that I wasn't going to get them and sure enough did not. Not happy about this part for sure. Our shower door did not close so needless to say we had lots of water on the floor. I just asked for extra towels. The restaurants shut down arbitrarily which was a bit frustrating but the food was good everywhere we went. A bit of advise on the taxi thing. A car taxi from the airport to the resort should not be more that 300-400 pesos (30-40 US). Vans cost more so don't get suckered in. We hired a taxi driver to drive us around for 3 hours and show us around the area (50 US) It was a great was to spend a few hours. Manzanillo city is pretty but limited for shopping. There are a few flea markets on the highway that are better for souvenir shopping. Overall the resort was good and clean. No fighting for deck chairs.

5 out of 5

It was a very nice experience....well worth it.

Pros: Quiet, nice hospitality, friendly and, helpful staff
Cons: No free Internet, some heat for pools
Staff & service was very very good; friendly, helpful, attentive. The food courts and bar selection were awesome. The pools could probably use a little heat, but I'm sure with current weather condition it is perfect. Keep up the good work!
