    Overall the resort was good. It is very family oriented and had lots of children there. A little noisy if you are going for quiet time but there are areas around the pools to get away from it a little bit. The staff in the restaurants were excellent. Very attentive and pleasant as well as the front desk people. If your package included resort credits, don't count on getting them. I was told I would have $525 to use on the resort. When I enquired about them, they said they had run and out didn't have any more. To keep checking back and see if they showed up. I was told that if they didn't show by the end of my visit that I would be credited them the next time I stayed at a Barcelo resort. Not great as I had budgetted to use them in the spa etc. Then as the week went on I was told that it was more like a discount card and could only be used on certain things. It was becoming quite apparent that I wasn't going to get them and sure enough did not. Not happy about this part for sure. Our shower door did not close so needless to say we had lots of water on the floor. I just asked for extra towels. The restaurants shut down arbitrarily which was a bit frustrating but the food was good everywhere we went. A bit of advise on the taxi thing. A car taxi from the airport to the resort should not be more that 300-400 pesos (30-40 US). Vans cost more so don't get suckered in. We hired a taxi driver to drive us around for 3 hours and show us around the area (50 US) It was a great was to spend a few hours. Manzanillo city is pretty but limited for shopping. There are a few flea markets on the highway that are better for souvenir shopping. Overall the resort was good and clean. No fighting for deck chairs.

  • It was a very nice experience....well worth it.

    Staff & service was very very good; friendly, helpful, attentive. The food courts and bar selection were awesome. The pools could probably use a little heat, but I'm sure with current weather condition it is perfect. Keep up the good work!

    This place is simply incredible. The word quotpalacequot in the name does not do it justice. The whole property is beautifully landscaped and meticulously maintained. Staff is everywhere day and night constantly wiping sweeping vacuuming polishing cleaning everything. This place is spotless everywhere just like DisneyWorld! There are so many pools I could not count them all and I dont even think I was able to find them all. Plenty of professionally supervised activities #40including a movie theater screening Disney movies#41 for kids down to age 4. This gives Mom Dad more private time at the adult pools. There are also all kinds of adult activities like yoga classes a fully-equipped gym aqua aerobics water volleyball etc. to keep you busy all the time or you can just relax in peaceful quiet surroundings at one of several adult pool areas. All day barbeque in the pool area. Service in all the restaurants was outstanding and the food was great. Security cops were everywhere. Poolside service was attentive and frequent. The buffet always open has a selection of Mexican food and everybodys favorite American things to choose from. During breakfast the omelet station will prepare eggs waffles and pancakes to your liking. The staff is very well-trained to European standards not intrusive but always attentive. Nightly entertainment is something different every evening and begins promptly at 9:00 PM in an outdoors theater near the beach. There are several snack and gifts shops. This place is all-inclusive so all food and drink is included. With so many restaurants to choose from #40some of the specialty restaurants require reservations and more formal attire for evening meals#41 there is no need to leave the property for anything. Rates are very competitive with other properties around Manzanillo. You wont go wrong at the Karmina

    We were treated like royalty. Walk into a fairytale land where all your dreams are real. Our daughter got married here, everything went perfect! The price was unbelievably low! We had 33 guests from the USA. We spent 11 nights & 12 days in this paradise where your fridge is replenished and your room is cleaned daily. It was unbelievable how comfortable the beds are. The food was Excellent. there are different places to choose from on-site to eat. This is an all-inclusive resort so unlimited food & drinks are free. Security is tight so you can relax and not worry. The property is gated off and there are guards at the front entrance as well as alot of security walking around. You can enjoy a different show each night. Lots of activities including pool games.A couple Local venders are on-site to sell you their hand-made gifts. Massages are not included but very reasonable and are of high quality. You can take a tour or rent a car to experience real Mexico. There are many different excursions..Fishing, Snokeling, Siteseeing. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff for working so hard to make our trip memorable, relaxing and stress-free. From the Wedding set-up, flowers and decor,DJ,Cake,Catering and servers to the lovely jester of surprising our daughter and new Husband when they returned to their room with a bubblebath,chocolate covered strawberries,Rose pedals leading to the master bedroom with a beautifully decorated bed with swans. It was awesome and a Wedding that will never be forgotten. Beautiful oceanview rooms. The ground and pools are kept immaculately clean. Treat yourself to a once in a lifetime unforgettable vacation, You're worth it!

    Our trip will was everything we had hoped for and more. Our daughter's wedding was picture perfect. Both sides of the families came from out of the country and from Mexico. All our guest had such a great time. There was never a dull moment. The food was GREAT! Everyone at the hotel treated us like family. They were so helpful. The rooms were large and very clean and comfortable. The grounds were beautiful, with flowers and trees through out. The entertainment was very nice too. The swimming pools were great. There was plenty of lounges for everyone around all the pools. The disco was a fun spot to go to at the end of the day. I wish I could have stayed for many more days. My husband and I can't wait to go back in the near further.
