Second Stay at Barcelo

I stayed here once before about 8 years ago, and the food was better the first time. This time the food was just ok - the Italian a-la-carte restaurant was the best. The front desk staff could use a little refresher course in welcoming hospitality - they were fairly nonchalant. Not rude by any means, just not overly welcoming or helpful. All other staff were fabulous! The hotel is clean and well maintained, but could maybe use a little updating in some areas. The nightly shows were fun, but super loud in the room for those not attending - not sure how much can be done about that at this point, just something to keep in mind if you like to be in bed before 10 pm. Would definitely stay here again if the price is right.

Fabulous Vacation

This all inclusive resort was awesome. The staff was very friendly, always had a smile on their faces and were eager to grab drinks for you. The drinks and food were awesome. The free Tequilla and Wine tastings were a great bonus. Everything was kept very clean. The views from the beachfront pool were breathtaking. The sky bar was our favorite unique part of the resort. This area overlooked the city and beach and had amazing views. My husband and I would definitely recommend this resort!

Overall Decent

Overall this resort is very mellow. The property is very clean. The rooms were nice. Maid service came everyday. The pool wasn’t exceptional in regards to scenery but they were a fun place to drink and laugh with friends. They had a cool snack area with finger foods, hot dogs, hamburgers, friend food and chips salsa, guacamole etc. The bartenders and pool waiters were super friendly. The only things I thought were a Lil lame was WIFi is an extra charge and so was room service. In most all inclusive resorts I’ve been to those aren’t extra. Plus room service takes awhile. Their Gardner view some aren’t a view of any garden. You stare at a wall. We also had 50 people that all stayed there so they made a gang of money and even though each person spent about $1600 for a week they really don’t care.

Beautiful, Clean, Friendly Staff

I have been to many resorts in Mexico over the years, and Barcelo Gran Faro rates right up there as one of the best. Since we were celebrating an anniversary, we did the premium package, and it was very nice. The premium lounge was comfortable and offered simple snacks and a good selection of premium drinks, and the staff seemed to truly want to please and help each guest have a good experience. The place was very clean - the rooms, the pools, the restaurants, the beach, everything....and the room amenities were very nice. The Ala cart restaurants were nice, but we actually enjoyed our evening at the buffet as much or more as these restaurants, and the breakfast buffet was super each morning. It's not a big resort, but they had activities at the pool and nightly entertainment, plus activities for you to do on your own (pool tables, volleyball, games, etc.). We will definitely be visiting this resort again!

What's to Love

It's all-inclusive, all-fam-bam-friendly and all-Caboliscious.

Private balconies that have spectacular views of the dreamy blue Sea of Cortez.

The Deep Blue Spa. Hydrotherapy and marine-based treatments. Meltaliscious.

The signature cocktail menu - it's creative and crafty and we love it.

From the front desk to the bartenders, the customer service is sunsational.


What We'd Change

There's not a lot of seating at the beach, but the sand is so powdery and the water so crystalline blue, furniture would probably just get in the way.


Why You Should Go

It's just a zippy 15 minutes from the airport. Cocktail time is so near you can taste it.

The snack bar serves up delish snacks all day long. Lotsa good grazing.

There are wave runners for splash-worthy fun & a fitness center for calorie-burning.

You can tee off at three swingin' golf courses that aren't too far away.
