10.0 Excellent
Pros:appearance of hotel restaurants buffet breakfast recycling staff was excellent
Cons:rooms were a bit small
8.0 Great
Pros:Value for money
Cons:Very limited Spa and small Fitness Center
2.0 Bad
Pros:The hotel said that the first three floors had no water service and all floors above were booked. However, we went to the fitness center on the main floor and the showers were working fine. The kitchen on the main floor also had a water supply. We found out later that the water line was a lie. The hotel used that as an excuse to send us to another hotel because they had overbooked. The hotel they sent us to had a cheaper rate than Barcelo. The hotel that Barcelo sent us to said that Barcelo over books all the time, lies to their patrons all the time, and sends them to the hotel we were sent to and forces the other hotel to deal with or try to make up for Barcelo's mistakes and poor customer service. Also, one of the reasons we booked this hotel was because of the free airport shuttle service. The shuttle never showed up at the airport. We were told there would be a shuttle at 6:30, at 6:45, we called the hotel and it turns out they never sent a shuttle. We ended up having to get a cab and we were not reimbursed for the taxi ride. For the ride back to the airport, I just booked a taxi because I did not trust the Barcelo shuttle to pick me up in time from the hotel they sent me to.
Cons:Did not like anything about this hotel.
