Unforgetable stay!

This is our first holidays where my husband and I combined few celebrations at the same time (both of our birthdays and anniversary) We have spent endless hours on web surfing before we decided to go ahead and we chosen Barcelo Margaritas. To be honest i could not imagine better vacations, still 3 more days to go and feeling already sad we have to leave in few days. There is such amazing variety of activities and things to do either in Barcelo or in the area. I love to stay active hence location bit away from the beach is simply perfect for the morning run! Food options are totally in my taste, you can choose healthy breakfast with lots of fruits or go for it and have omlette, poach, fried , scrambler eggs and many many more condiments. Lunch and dinner offer so much to choose your eyes can eat but believe me you never get bored or stay hungry! In the bar during time between service you can order hamburgers, hot dogs or pick something up from the salad/ sandwich corner. Indefinitely recommend all inclusive option and you can play own bar tender all day and night long. Witch so much options what to drink and staff always happy to exchange empty bottles, you feel welcome and cozy. Room is perfect! We stay on 7th floor in 728 with great view on the pool and spectacular view on the mountains, sunset is breath taking and when sun goes down in most of locations we still enjoy last minutes of it in the balcony till it sets on the horizont.. Housekeeping does fantastic job and ever since our arrival room is perfectly cleaned, towels and shower gel replenished. I love the bed, these are zipped but very very comfy and all together you have 2 x 2 m of sleeping space which you will love! There is great animating team which takes care of entertiment of your little ones and yourselves, this is multilingual team which speak spanish, german, english, polish, italian and french woow!! I Strongly recommend evening shows are very funny. We always feel being well taken care of. The Hotel Manager called during our stay asking if all is allright, very lovely touch! Also we got bottle of bubbly to celebrate our birthdays! We are very pleased we chosed this place to stay and will become loyal customers from now, there are plenty Barcelo hotels around the globe and this is only first from the list to visit!

We have stayed at this hotel twice in the past 6 months. Both visits have been great. All the hotel staff are very friendly and always smiling. The pool first time was freezing cold and sadly was too cold to get into, the second time we went it was walmer so we enjoyed swimming. The hotel is placed very well if you like shopping and partying at night as the yumbo isn't very far away. I would deffinatly stay at this hotel again as both visits have been amazing. We even had a call from our tel manager asking if everything was great with our holiday. As it was my birthday we also walked into a bottle of bubbly and fruit waiting for us (free of charge) they also leave little notes. Things like this makes your holiday a lot more special.

Me and my partner have just come back from a 7 night stay here. The hotel was lovely we stayed in the main hotel and it was modern and clean inside and surprisingly quite of a night. We found it to be a great mix of family's and couples which made a great atmosphere. There was loads of activities to do and got everyone involved. My only downside was the food, I found the lunch option was better than dinner but if you didn't get there early enough if did run low quickly. I am also an extremely fussy eater and struggled most evenings to find something I eat however the staff was move in than happy to prepare me something different. I would recommend this hotel and would stay at one of their sister hotels in the future.
