The pools, beach view are breathtaking. Beach is not accessible because of strong current, but that didnt matter to us...we'd rather to be in the pool anyway. Being in an All Inclusive, we don't have to hassle about where to eat and that's really nice. Food was good, I mainly got seafood and lots of pineapple juice. Yum! We went during the 1st week of October -- perfect timing! Not a lot of people, but that could be because it just recently reopened (Sept 15) or it's still hurricane season? Every staff we came across has been VERY nice and helpful. Overall, even with the visit from a cockroach, we'd definitely come back and we highly recommend the place. There's a cockroach in our bathroom. Trapped it and called service to dispose it. We kept the bathroom lights on at night thereafter. We don't want to step on something squishy in the middle of the night!
We had a fantastic view of the ocean from our room - seriously amazing. The resort was beautiful and the staff were all friendly, helpful, and spoke really good English. The spa was so relaxing and pretty. Overall I really wish we had stayed longer. We were meeting up with my sister, my brother-in-law, and her two nieces so it was a perfect situation. Loved that food was available 24/7 including the desserts! Loved that food was available 24/7 including the desserts! The food was hit or miss - Mexican food was fantastic of course! We loved the Japanese place as well. The French place was mostly good but not quite the level you'd expect. We didn't get to try the Spanish or Italian place. There is little nightlife at the resort itself.
Staff was wonderful and very accommodating. Views were lovely. Pools and grounds were clean. Food was fairly good - Stick to Mexican in Mexico and you won't be disappointed! Staff didn't notify us when maintenance was being done on hot water, but answered questions at front desk when we called.
Super aufmerksames Personal. Sehr freundlich, einige waren lustig. Das beste Essen von allen Resorts, in denen wir schon vorher waren. Die Zimmer waren romantisch, die Aussicht war wunderschön. Tolle Pools, jede Menge Sitzgelegenheiten, Stühle, Aktivitäten im Freien. Ich kann es kaum erwarten, wieder dorthin zu fahren! Nichts.
Gorgeous all around. One note of advice would be for rooms to include bottles of water. You get incredibly thirsty in the heat and not having water in the room daily creates tremendous anxiety.
Friendly non intrusive staff, luxury, pool and surroundings, service poolside and in restaurants.
The pool and grounds were beautiful. Rooms were very spacious with full kitchens and large baths. Room and bathroom lighting was very poor. Wireless internet did not work in individual villas. Internet was an extra charge.
Simply the best... The best experience we've had in terms of accommodations, service and food. All the staff was very attentive and paid attention to detail. We celebrated our 25th anniversary with a 5 night stay at the Marquis just last week. Since we mentioned the occasion they surprised us with many small details that went a long way. I won't spoil it for you just case you decide to do the same! One of our favorite things to do was the outdoor Italian restaurant. That night they also featured a wine tasting activity. Don't pass up the appetizer thin crust gourmet pizza baked outdoor in their brick oven. Beef carpaccio was off the hook The only downside was not being able to go into the beach immediately in front of the hotel. We walked down a few minutes toward the Hilton to experience the beautiful pacific. There we were able to get in at but just about 10 feet before the drop off. We were lucky to be there when schools of fish were swimming right up to the shoreline. There were a couple locals netting bushels of these "Lisa" fish one bucket after another.
The all inclusive was pretty good, the food for the most part was good, I would say 3-Star dining. Loved the tub in the room, that was such a nice touch. The drinks in the all inclusive are very, very bottom shelf. No hot water in the shower.
The Marquis was absolutely perfect! The most gorgeous views I have ever seen. The staff was great and very helpful with everything. The food was also good (I would rate it a 7 out of 10) but for an all inclusive a 9 out of 10. All in all a perfect 10. The only problem was that you were not able to swim in the ocean. The water was too dangerous. But the beautiful pools made up for that.
The location was fantastic. The resort and grounds were beautiful. The room was very clean with nice amenities. I would stay again but not do the all-inclusive package next time and go off-site for my meals. The food quality for this level of resort was sub-par. Everything was very bland. It also appears they need more wait staff. We stayed for only 1 night but made a reservation at the on-site Mexican restaurant. Our dinner took over 2 hours, each dish was below expectation and the portions were tiny. On a separate occasion, I observed a worker in the buffet take a scoop of guacamole, put his finger in it, taste it, then place the spoon back in the guacamole!
We've stayed in the San Jose / Los Cabos area a few times and we like the Hotels proximity to nearby shopping centers. Most of the staff were very pleasant except for a lady who worked at the front desk as well as a lady who worked the grill at the restaurant by the pool. The two most important things we want when booking an all-inclusive vacation is a room with a wonderful view and good food. We booked an ocean view room. When we entered our room on the second level, all we saw were trees, the pool and if we looked hard enough…. we saw a little bit of the the ocean. Our room was # 2218. We always book ocean view rooms when traveling to a beach resort and we were alway pleased with the view until this trip. To say the least, we were very disappointed. After some hesitation, I called the front desk to voice my concerns with the "Ocean View". The gentleman who answered the phone, after listening to my concerns, said "That's what you paid for." I again told him that all I see is trees, the pool and people in bating suits. I requested a room that doesn't have trees blocking the view. He told me that he didn't have one at the moment and that I can call in the morning to get a better room. The next morning I walked down to the lobby to see about getting a better view. The lady at the front desk had this annoyed look on her face. She told me that I have an ocean view room. I again explained to her that the view is blocked by trees. It was a palm tree and a short fuller tree to be exact. Being on such a low level any obstacle would block your view but come on…. two trees is ridiculous. I told her that on the hotels website, the picture of their "ocean view" was spectacular and that is what I was expecting or at least something close. She stilled had that annoyed look on her face. I told her that I don't mean to be difficult but I want what I paid for. Long story short, I moved to a partial ocean view on the 5th floor. Room 2517. It over looked The Grand Solaris Hotel ( I had a beautiful ocean view there a few years ago) and the ocean. The partial ocean view was way better than the no view "ocean view" room. What a joke. The first day there we went to the restaurant by the pool for lunch. It was small in comparison to other resorts. I assume it's because the Barcelo resort is on the small side. There was a line of 6 people waiting to order their grilled item. The Lady grilling was grilling one or two requests at a time. It took forever to get your grilled Item. The gentleman in front of me asked for three chickens..I'm sure it's because he didn't want to wait in line again and I didn't blame him. The grill lady looked at him and said " Three??" I felt bad for the poor guy. He looked embarrassed. The next day I was in line with 1 lady in front of me. She asked for 2 fish, I asked for 2 and the lady behind me asked for two. The fish is on the small side so asking for two seemed reasonable. She put all 6 fish on the grill, an improvement from the day before. When she plated my fish, she gave me 1. I asked for the other one. She gave me a dirty look and gave a small piece that broke off another fish. This lady should not be dealing with guests. She is very rude. I wish I can write more but I'm out of characters.
The meals were good enough. They had options for meat eaters and the cooking was right. They should have more vegetarian options, like vegetarian beans as protein, rice. Booking restaurants are very good! But book with time... Even when they have availability you won't get a table without a reservation. And when you book, ask them what food are you booking for. The last night of our trip we wanted to eat Italian food and we got the reservation. When we got there they sat us and gave us the menu, we were ordering and all of a sudden they took away our menus and told us that night wasn't Italian but all about fish! We don't eat fish! We had to go and eat at the buffet. Just be aware. They don't advertise on any website searcher that you shouldn't swim at the sea, or that is dangerous. We love the beach, my son is five and enjoys playing in the water. This time we couldn't do that because we didn't know about the fact you barely can get in the water. It's very rough! An adult can handle it but a kid, no. That was disappointing because we love to sit at the beach and play... But the part that is just horrible, being honest, it's the cleanliness of the rooms. 0 stars on this! The rooms smell pretty bad. Like old and wet. There was dirt on the floor that you can see and feel under your feet if you like to walk barefoot. The bathroom doesn't have ventilation so any smell gets stuck in the walls. They don't clean the showers!!! We found hairs, old soap and mold stuck to one corner of the shower and I had to shower with flip flops on... The rooms need to be updated. Pretty much everything was falling apart. Lamps dirty, beds and pillows lumpy, the telephone in the rooms work when they wanted, sink broken, chairs stained, curtains cover in dust and smelly. Any way, be aware that the hotel hasn't had a good maintance and it's very DIRTY
Staff was friendly neat clean place Nothing
This hotel is a great value for the money. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Extensive food choices should satisfy just about anyone. The low rise terra cotta colored building and the native landscaping create an inviting atmosphere. Location--the hotel abuts a nature preserve on one side so nothing commercial can ever be built there; also, very close to town. There is an adults only quiet pool as well as areas for families with children. Free parking. We have stayed at this property 6-7 times over a period of about twenty years, and it's showing its age a little. Some towels were worn and frayed (sheets were fine), and dishware was chipped. Some wooden furniture in the rooms is showing wear and tear. Decor could use some color and local art.
