    Moved rooms 3 times due to visible room damage and bad odors. Food was so nasty in restaurants that I spent so much money at outside the resort restaurants to eat food that was eatable. Will not be going back to this resort.

    If you are looking for a nice beach property and don't mind the crowds, this is your place.

    As I have indicated, the Barcelo offers and great location on Palm Beach and the staff both in the hotel and the restaurants are very helpful. We spent a lot of our time in the ocean and this beach was great for that. Be prepared to get up early (6:00 am) to grab a spot on the each or you may not have any cover otherwise. That said, the buffet was not very good at all and I have traveled to several different Caribbean resorts so I can honestly tell you that there was a certain lack of quality here. The restaurants were better but still not great. There are many better dinner options outside the resort and on the Island. The hotel and facilities are old and show their age and are in need of some TLC.
