Had a fantastic stay at Barcelo PV!

One of the best vacations I’ve ever had! From the incredible ocean & pool views from our balcony to the friendly & helpful staff, everything was wonderful! We went during a quiet week so the resort was not crowded, especially by the pool, on the beach or in the restaurants. We also received a complimentary room upgrade which was AWESOME! We enjoyed dining in a different restaurant each night & trying out different dishes. The food was for the most part pretty good. I loved the quiet, secluded location outside of town yet it was so beautiful and many things to do around the hotel. A perfect location! Mismaloya Beach one of the most scenic beaches in PV and an incredible value for the money! The other resorts nearby or even in town did not compare! We’re already talking about our next visit. Can’t wait to go back!

Perfect location. Right on a clean beach with everything you could ever want or need. We stayed from October 6-13 so got some amazing offseason rates. The staff is all happy, friendly and can't do enough for you. The rooms are clean, the food is amazing all you can eat and drink what more could a person want. The concierge is always ready to help but never pushing tours or timeshares etc. Close enough to the city it you want it. We took the city bus for 8 pesos, are you kidding, comes by the hotel every 15 minutes. We picked the right place.

A quick getaway, lasting impression.

I booked a quick trip to Barcelo Puerto Vallarta. I have stayed at several of their properties and wanted to compare this one to the others. First of all, it's a simply gorgeous location. The resort itself is pin sharp and the maintenance personnel keep it immaculate. One of the nicest resorts I have had the pleasure to visit. Just little details but the rooms, halls and the grounds are spotless. I booked the Presidential Suite so I was expecting greatness and it was. A huge multi-room complex with two bedrooms and three baths. The patio wraps around the suite offering breathtaking views no matter where you look. You get the premium lounge to handle all all your issues like checking in and out and any number of reservations you may wish to make. It's a cozy lounge with beverages and appetizers always available. There are multiple swimming pools that are quite awe inspiring. The requisite swim up bar of course is front and center. The resort is about 300 rooms and is fairly large but somehow it seems quite easy to get from one place to another without thinking you are spending your time just walking about. The food was on par with the other Barcelo properties but they didn't offer nearly as many food options and places to eat. They have an Italian and Japanese restaurant and of course the buffet. They have an outdoor grill for most anything you want during the day. I must admit, their food was excellent and a wonderful variety. The breakfast buffet was certainly more than adequate with a huge selection. The views from the restaurant were spectacular. Some of the venues were compromised due to various activities that had been booked in the resort. A convention was going on and also on Friday, a huge wedding of 100 guests. They pretty much took over the grill area for dancing into the night. The gym was as nicely appointed as any I have seen in a very long time. The equipment was top of the line and was quite comprehensive so nobody would ever complain about not being able to get in a great workout. The one thing that I felt was just not quite as good as it could be was the overall service on Friday and into Saturday. What was happening was they were turning the entire resort over to an International lifestyle group that had booked all the rooms for the upcoming week. I think the staff was very preoccupied with this as it's a huge and somewhat complicated undertaking as they had to put up screens and such to block all the views into the resort from the beach as not to offend anyone passing by. I just felt the service would have been better if the entire staff and resort hadn't been committed to this group. I can understand, I am but one person and they will be catering to 600. It's a business decision but just it left me with a somewhat negative feelings and when you can't reach the premium lounge after numerous calls and the response was somewhat unsympathetic to our needs. I think they were overly stressed by all the preparation and anticipation. I don't wish to take anything away from the resort as it's truly a first class property. I also booked my airport transportation through them and that was a seamless transaction and perfectly orchestrated by the hotel. The beach isn't what I would consider a great beach for swimming. It's a very strong shore break right on the sand. You have to know what you are doing there for fear of betting pounded into the sand. They have a large fleet of fishing boats there of which I availed myself of a three hour trip which was quite successful with catching albacore tuna. I had the local restaurant right on the beach next to the resort cook it up for lunch in their various styles and not to leave out the fish tacos they prepared as well. One of the best lunches you could imagine. The trip was reasonable and the boat was in perfect and nearly new condition. The captain was quite knowledgeable and informative. I certainly would recommend a bit of fishing if you enjoy that type of thing. They have snorkeling and other boating available right from the beach there in the front of the resort. The resort did send to my room a bottle of champagne for some issues and miscommunication but in the end, all was good and I would love to return to that same resort over and over.

I’ll be Back!

The staff and location was perfect. Eli and Karla from Cilantros were amazing!! Walking beach distance from the Office and Mango Deck. It was less than 10 min cab ride to down town for the Clubs. Overall a great experience.

The hotel is in a beautiful setting. The front desk was very helpful in getting us checked in, and even upgraded our room to a suite with two bathrooms and two bedrooms. The A/C worked very well, and we had a great view of the pool and ocean. My only problem with this hotel was the food. It was very bland and uninspired. Even the specialty restaurants were bland. There is a snack bar that serves sandwiches, tacos and pizza and is a welcome change from the buffet. Something I thought was unusual was the man who walks around with a hawk. I was told it was to keep the pigeons away from the hotel. The hawk flies into the trees and then back to it's keeper. It's cool to see. There was also a young man who will give you a facial massage at your pool chair for free. Of course he appreciates a tip. Overall, we enjoyed our stay at the hotel. I'm not sure we will return to Puerto Vallarta, as I much prefer the beaches of the Yucatan to the beaches here. The sand is of very poor quality.
