Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Very nice rooms, friendly people and decent food. But even though the staff was friendly they seemed to be in no great hurry. Bartenders were slow, and disinterested even for decent tips. We also had issue during check-in we arrived in our room to find it clean and almost ready. We had no towels and even though we requested towels at 3pm, when we returned to the room after dinner we only had bath towels. No wash cloths or hand towels. We had to call down twice more until they showed up almost an hour later.

Review:   Beautiful beach! Hotel staff is unorganized yet friendly. You have to fight for shaded chairs. You can only make 2 dinning reservations per stay. Rooms are nice. Entertainment is what you might expect but nice to have something to do after dinner. Wait service good some excellent.

Review:   First time here, great rooms modern and clean. All inclusive plan abundance of good food, only drawback some potato dishes are sometimes cold. Not always. Quality alcohol in drinks, not skimpy servings. Would try the Barcelo brand on future trips.

Review:   This place is just OK. Not horrible, but not on my list of places I'd recommend, either. We visited on a day pass as cruise ship passengers. The beach and pool are nice enough, and the all inclusive nature of the place removes any worry of running up an excessive tab. But the food was mediocre at best, and my wife saw one of the table servers take silverware that "looked clean" from a used table and re-set it at another table. We still enjoyed the day, but I'd try someplace else next time.

Review:   Awesome so far.... People are lovely and the food and drinks are great. The place is clean and beautiful. Clara, Gilmer, Jermin, Gerald and Victor from the Royal Bar were so kind. Excellent service from them, really recommended if you want the best service and attention at the beach.
