A real all inclusive hotel! You should choose the Barcelo Costa Cancun if you want to have fun. To appreciate your stay at all hours of the day and night, you should enjoy taking part in the various daily activities and not be bothered by the large number of holiday-makers. The hotel is located in a lively area with shops, various attractions, and pier for trips to the Isla Mujeres. If you dream of getting some peace and quiet, steer clear of this hotel!

    Location 7.74 /10

    On the edge of the Atlantic ocean, the Barcelo Costa Cancun is located at the northernmost point of the Cancun hotel zone, 3 mi from the centre of town. There are many shops nearby, as well as El Embarcado where the boats allowing you to get to the Isla Mujeres are anchored. Note the two huge pirate ships recreating a raid at sea! Cancun international airport is 9 mi away.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    Of the 357 rather plain rooms, 264 have a sea view. They are all decorated in white and cream. They are accessed by outdoor corridors decorated by numerous flower arrangements in pots. Four rooms are adapted for guests with reduced mobility. There are two categories of room at the Barcelo Costa Cancun: the standard (with a small balcony) and the junior suite (with a balcony and a hammock) All large, they are equipped with hard bedding, and twin or king size beds. Here you will find a telephone, a safe used for free, individual air conditioning combined with a fan, tea and coffee making facilities, a television with 21 channels, a DVD player, and an iron and ironing board. As for the averagely-sized bathroom, it has a vanity mirror, a shower, a hair dryer and welcome products (in dispensers). Room service is available 24 hrs a day.

    Overview 7.45 /10

    Built in 1994 and renovated in 2005, this all inclusive club is made up of different areas that all open up onto one another. It is easily accessed by a large outdoor lobby. The 7 floors of this compact structure are accessed by several lifts. Lively and therefore loud, people seem to prefer the large, round swimming pool a lot more than the small beach. This is the centre of the hotel, where many holiday-makers spend a lot of their time. The outdoor area for the kids club is large; however we disliked the tarmacked floor and the fact that it is squashed between two buildings. At the spa, the sauna, Turkish bath and Jacuzzi can be used for free. Normally very frequented, the gym is pleasant, with its many bay windows. There is also: a disco and three bars. In short, there is enough to occupy yourself with!

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    As well as the buffet able to host 145 people, there are three a la carte restaurants available. Two are open for all three meals of the day. The Mexican is only open for dinner. The restaurant is open to guests between 7.00 am and 10.30 pm. If this isn't enough, the snack bar is open 24 hours a day. However, as elsewhere, the general presentation of the international and local dishes at the buffet is not very inviting. Choice is adequate, but nothing more.

    Beach 6.45 /10

    Kayak, pedalo, snorkelling, beginners' diving lessons: all of these water sports are free at the Barcelo Costa Cancun. The beach, which has very little slope, could be pleasant, but the hotel unfortunately struggles to keep the seaweed on the beach from coming back. The water is full of it. Along a large stretch of the beach, a type of small dyke made from big sacks filled with sand tries in vain to prevent the sand from being engulfed by the ocean and the seaweed from returning to the shore. This image does not really encourage you to go swimming. The supervised beach is not very big. Consequently, the place can quickly get very busy and noisy. Also, the water sports club takes up a lot of space with its various boats.

    To know

    Activities take place non stop between 11.00 am and 5.00 pm (6 people take care of this). At 8.00 pm, it starts again with daily shows (Caribbean, cinema, Mayan, Carioca...). The clientele is rather young, and the majority of guests are English or Canadian. Many families also come to stay at this hotel (approximately 40%). The common areas and the rooms have wireless internet access.

      Close to the centre of Cancun's hotel and tourist district, the Oasis Viva Beach is a pleasant and functional hotel, which has known how to modernise while still remaining moderately sized, unlike the other hotels of the area. The question is: until when?! As the beach slopes very gently, it is very practical for children.
