These forums are great ! Has any one been to the Barcelo Playa Blanca? I’m researching for a group of 14 so different things to do are a must. Info about the rooms, activities, restaurants (are they closed in and air conditioned or open air??) would be much appreciated!
It is no longer a Barcelo - It’s now called the Grand Playa Blanca. Check the reviews under that name.
We took a tour of that resort just after it opened. It looked nice of course, it was new. Small. Quiet at that time. There was still work going on when we toured it.
They are building ALOT of condos/timeshares around it.
My wife and I took a walk down to the Playa Blanca while at the Decameron. It is smaller than the Decameron, but I found not near the landscaping and Vegetation. I found it very wide open, almost drab looking. If you are looking at activities, I would think the Decameron has alot more going on. More Ala carte restaurants, casino, pools, bars etc. I have spoken to people that were staying there. They had the same comments. I would think it would be a good place to go if your are looking for peace and quiet. I found at the Decameron there were quiet pools and bars I could go to or others with all the activity I wanted.
