    My wife and I had the pleasure of spending 10 nights at the Barcelo Ixtapa this past October. This is our 27th consecutive year visiting what use to be the Sheraton Ixtapa. The Resort did an excellent job with the appropriate safety related COVID precautions. The Resort sits on the prime location of Playa Palmar which provides beautiful colorful sunsets and lovely views of the Bay. Service was exceptional and Food was excellent. The specialty restaurants were impressive and a great way to spend the evening. Miguel Lopez and his Team make every effort to ensure an enjoyable vacation! Aplaudimos a un personal tan bueno y carinoso! We look forward to a quick return! Hector and Sandra

    My wife and I recently returned from our 6 year anniversary celebration at Barcelo Ixtapa. We cannot say enough wonderful tings about Barcelo Ixtapa! The resort has excellent COVID safety protocols (masks, hand sanitizer, and social distancing). Our oceanview room was clean and comfortable. We especially enjoyed the waterfall shower in the bathroom. Service throughout the resort was 5 star. Food at the buffets and specialty restaurants was delicious. The pools were crystal clear, warm, and inviting. There are plenty on lounge chairs poolside and underneath the shady palm trees on El Palmar Beach. We loved early morning walks on the beach. Recently hatched baby turtles were crawling from the coco sand beach to the ocean. At night, mama turtles swam ashore, laid their eggs, and then returned to the sea. Yoga classes at 10AM. Zumba classes at 11AM. Water aerobics at 12PM. Funny games at 1PM. Water volleyball at 3PM. Fabian and Any, the Entertainment Team, were so fun and welcoming. From El Palmar Beach, you can parasail, jet ski, and enjoy banana boat rides. We enjoyed beautiful sunsets every evening. Nothing but good times and complete relaxation! We can't wait to go back to Ixtapa someday. Muchas gracias to the wonderful team at Barcelo Ixtapa for a fantastic, memorable anniversary celebration!!!

    Went to Barcelo Resort last week. Flew into Mexico through Mexico City, Stayed a couple of nights there, and then a quick flight to Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa. Took a shuttle from the Airport to the resort ($300 for two people plus luggage). Arrived and they did not have the room ready, but offered the lunch to get settled and then the room was ready ($175 per/night/for 2 people, all inclusive). They tried to upsell, but the accommodations could not have been any better. The pool, the staff, the food, the location, everything was perfect. Mexico is a lot more vigilant about their COVID precautions than the US. Everyone who worked with the public in any way wore masks and shields. Temps were taken at every entrance, some took temps both going and coming. Tables were sanitized before (sometimes during) and after meals. I have never seen Mexico cleaner! The hotel in Mexico City had a security seal on the door that verified that it had been sanitized. The airports ran very smoothly. Uber worked fine in Mexico City, but not at all in Zihu/Ixtapa. I used to live in Mexico. 2007-2012. I've been all over the country. I love the Pacific coast. Ixtapa is a big secret. I understand why there are not very many comments on here about it.

    We had a very enjoyable time spending a good chunk March 2020 at Barcelo in Ixtapa. The amineties (pools, chairs, tennis, outdoor, very good buffet at restaurant La Palapa) are very well kept and the fact that they tended by a friendly and engaging staff have contributed to this sentiment. Very special mentions should go to Ms Alondra Simomia and Mr Alesandro, the salvadidas at the pools, who proved to be extremely resourceful and useful during that period. Thank you! Will come back next year...we hope! Roberto and Monica
