Good drinks, nice cool water in the pools even when its super hot and nice staff. The food is just not good enough. We have been to several all inclusives and don't expect fine dining. We are not picky eaters at all. Breakfast was fine, snack bar decent for lunch but for dinner we ended up going out 4 of our six days. Their main buffet is very small with the same dishes and only one fresh choice.
Barcelo - beware of kyoto sushi

Hotel is great, Kyoto sushi food is good but the manager and maître d' is terrible and causes all type of issues. He should be replaced, I would recommend not booking this restaurant because of him. location is great through and price is right

We really enjoyed the experience at the Barcelo in Huatulco. The area is very safe to walk/run around the neighbourhood on tree canopied sidewalks along the dual carriageway roads. We walked/ran to La Crucecita, and the other direction to Bocana beach. The taxi ride back to hotel was a relief.
We taxied from HUX to hotel for the standard 480 pesos, while the return was less at P300.
The hotel is nicely situated on the bay with hobie cat sailing and kayaking for the booking. Lovely reef fish to see at the end of beach past Dreams.
The hotel staff are excellent. We were welcomed at check in by Luis who makes a great first impression. We were lowly non-premium guests, so getting a room with king bed, and booking the evening a la carte restaurants was tricky, but it worked out OK, except for the Japanese that we never managed to book.
The lobby bar was pleasantly situated, and was the best source of cappuccinos. They also usually had a trio playing from 7 - 8pm for pre-dinner drinks and dance. Hard to get a decent G&T, so margaritas were a great substitute.
We typically had breakfast and lunch at the outdoor buffet where we were often serenaded by the waiters Angel and Carlos - incredible guys with tons of get up and go who inspire both the visitors and their fellow staff. But let's not forget the great welcome from the hostesses Alma and Azucena - great ambassadors for the Barcelo experience.
The Italian and Mexican a la carte restaurants were very good, with great food and service.
Poolside was very relaxed with great drink service from Carlos. However, when Alex (animacion leader) appeared, the atmosphere revved up as the animacion crew started their entertainment activities. This sexy daddy had to try his soccer and football skills, but was obviously not up to par in the competitive ranks. Alex, Hermena, and their crew did a great show every day.
Management staff were surveying the scene every day, and those we met (Ana, Ariadne, Erika) were wonderful hosts.
The hotel has 3 great tennis courts, and a good gym, all kept spic and span.
We hope to return, but would prefer a few more after dinner dancing opportunities.
Keep up the good work, and love life as you seem to be doing!

Barcelo was a beautiful resort. It was very clean, staff was very friendly and helpful, great entertainment, food, and overall experience. We felt safe here at all times. The beach was not even a minute walking and our ocean front room and great. It was a great trip, and Barcelo made it very memorable! Huatulco is a great hidden gem that everyone should visit.
