Beautiful beach and water, snorkeling, beach restaurant, room and the lobby bar (Victor). Convenience of scuba and snorkel excursions from property.
The main Buffet was not up to Barceló or Occidental standards. Food was not very good, presentation was not good and service personnel were not well trained.

Location good, quiet and away from cruise terminals. Clean with good facilities, nice and big rooms and the staff is very friendly and capable!
Food is average, also in the specialty restaurant. Breakfast is obviously too busy for the staff to handle.

Beautiful beach with heaps of deck chairs. Staff were very accommodating and always offering to help. Room was very spacious and always clean
Food was very poor and the shower pressure was terrible. Had to sit through a 30min sales pitch about their gold plus membership before we checked in despite us continually saying that we were not interested.

Disappointed : awful bed, linen, and pillows. Really bad food. Bad restaurants a la carte. Underwhelmed at Barceló and it’s hotels, specially one that calls itself a 5 star.

Activities abound as the hotel’s tropical mangrove and marine surroundings are one of the top five scuba destinations in the world. A wide range of other sports such as kayaking, sailing, snorkeling and water polo, and the hotel features fully-equipped facilities with a spa, gym, and beach club.
