    I don't know anything about Barcelo Group, but maybe this is good for that property. I've heard "not so good" things about Occidental in recent years.










    and maybe a 55th b-day in Aruba, Feb, 2020

    the Barcelo is quite nice......at least the one in the DR where we stayed a few years ago was very nice and the food was top notch.

    The Barcelo Resorts are all-inclusive resorts - you'll find alot of them in Mexico. They are a very good brand/good quailty and definitely a step or two above the Occidental chain so I can see them doing alot of upgrades/improvements to the Occidental resorts.

    If they have to be there, may as well do it "right".

    Are Barcelo's considered 4 or 5 star resorts? Are Riu 4 star?

    Riu's have different levels of resorts - anywhere from 3-star to 5-star. The Riu Palace "level" is generally considered 5-star.

    Barceló is the same way - anywhere from 3 star (those are mainly in Costa Rica) to the newer 4 and 5 star resorts in MX and DR.
