An amazing resort on a dazzling beach, with 774 rooms in a winding S formation of white buildings, with red Spanish-styled roof tops. The lobby is a warm tangerine color with comfortable seating under a chandelier, which amusingly also happens to house a birds nest! The main restaurant, casino, disco and forum style-theater are on the same level. A staircase leads down to the main grounds and an arcade of stores and a bank. Horizontally inline with the beach, the property curves around gardens and a large main swimming pool with swim-up bar and 3 Jacuzzis on a raised platform. There are 5 specialty restaurants ranging from French to Japanese, for a sampling of fine cuisine and one main buffet restaurant with multi-choices of international style cooking. Barcelo is a fun-filled resort for kids. They'll have a blast on the circus trapeze, yes flying through the air on a harness. Or climbing a rock wall, on a harness with an ocean view at the top! They can even skate by the Sea on a rink of special tile (ice skates provided). Tip: For the best photograph, stand on the terrace of the dive shop to snap a breathtaking view of miles and miles of white beach set between to peninsulas of coconut groves.
