    Great time at Barcelona Los Cabos Mexico, happy experience and good memories

    Wonderful staying here at Barcelo, great service, very friendly staff, good food, walk distance to downtown San Jose, very convenience to airport and easily to have taxi to Cabo’s San Lucas. But Wi-Fi service needs to improve

    Premium Experience needs to improve!

    Service staff friendly. Disappointed in premium staff (julian). Made terrible margarita with Tajin in it. Did not use any premium liquor. No apology. We paid for premium and got mediocre. Asked what i wanted and said they were out of everything i requested when i got all of those the day before. I am a very good tipper and even tipped some of the grounds crew. Fernando was excellent and Alejandro was fantastic! Hope you can fix this as we are here for three more nights and would love to change this review. We have enjoyed the restaurants and snack bars. Buffets not so good but Mexican is tomorrow so hope to amend this review. Please let us know who we should contact as i really want to change this review.

    Awesome week at Barcelo, wish we would have stayed longer.

    Great experience at Barcelo Gran Faro Los Cabos. Although the rooms could use a refresh they were large and clean. Housekeeping came daily. Our room was a premium with beach view with a nice balcony. The pools were great, especially enjoyed the infinity pool. Breakfast and lunch buffet were good. We ate in the 3 restaurants most nights, Mexican, Italian and Sushi. All were good. When you upgrade to premium you are able to make reservations the day before, I highly recommend this option. We found all of the staff to be very pleasant and welcoming. I am very surprised by the reviews that say they are rude and not accommodating. This was absolutely not our experience. The Barcelo was a great value for the price we paid, which was substantially less than many other all inclusive resorts.

    The entertainment team is fantastic they went above and beyond pleasing us with playing the music we wanted . They tough a dance routine and after the lesson they play more songs for us to practice . We are specially thankful for Jared Romero, Fabiola Molina, Sexy Brian. We had so much fun playing darts and the trivia , they really know how to engage people and make the games fun. For me this is the highlight of my trip.
