Just got back from the Barcelo for 4 days. To answer your questions:
All meals are included with a couple of cavaets. You can only eat in the fancy italian restaurant one night, and if you order shrimp, they add 5 dollars and if you order lobster, they add 10 dollars. A tip..if you like calamari...ask them to bring the entre as a appetizer...they not only brought us one..but brought us 2. The buffets are pretty good, the breakfast has make to order omelettes if you dont mind standing in a bit of a line.
2. Drinks..lets start with the servi bar...cause yes, some is inluded. They give you 2 Marias waters..500 mils that are free..the big one, they charge for. Any Evian..they charge for. They also give you 4 coronitas..the little coronas, a day, for free, and restock them each day. Alcohol drinks..not limit, all included except if you want really fancy tequilla...but they have a house tequilla that is okay...just ask for the El Jimador..a better quality..and still free. At the end of 4 days of eating, serious drinking...including shots, mixed, beers..nothing on the bill but the Evian and some chips. Now that never happens!
Further questions..just let me know. You made a good choice with the Barcelo. Just to let you know, the pool is pretty warm, but the waves are great for body surfing if you like that. Its hot and humid..but you probably already knew that as well.
