My Stay at Barcelo Puerto Vallarta

Balcony View

I was blown away by my recent stay at Barcelo Puerto Vallarta. My friends and I took a trip to Mexico for my birthday last week. We selected this resort as the photos were stunning, they offered plenty of amenities and they had excellent reviews. We stayed for eight nights and nine days. We opted for club premium rooms, as they came with a good amount of perks [free room service, spa discounts, complimentary wifi, free city tour, and more!].  

Barcelo is roughly 45 minutes (by car) from the airport. Although it was a little further than most of the resorts, we were walking distance from the zoo and were able to take the bus into town. Joe and I enjoyed a private check-in in the club premium lounge [which we could access at any time for snacks, drinks, and computers]. Our room was beautiful. The first section of our room consisted of a couch, television and a closet. Our bedroom held a king size bed, giant television and another couch. We enjoyed our huge shower, complete with robes and slippers. 

The pools were the highlight of the resort. Barcelo has three pools [one is a children's pool]. We generally visited the pool with the swim up bar [obviously]. We visited the pools every single day. Bonus: iguanas hung out on the rocks along the sides of the pool. 

The resort was located next to the beach [another place we visited quite frequently]. The arches perched along the edge of the hotel are symbolic of Puerto Vallarta; they can also be found in town along the boardwalk. 

Joe and I stargazed from the hammocks at night. What is a resort without hammocks? They added to the relaxed vibe of the hotel. 

All in all we had an incredible stay at Barcelo Puerto Vallarta. I highly recommend this resort if you are looking to vacation in this area. I love the rich history of this town and will treasure these memories forever.
