Our Opinion

Although listed as a 5, this adults-only hotel is probably closer to a 4 star. While there are many comparable 5 star resorts, the Barcelo Bavaro Beach still promises beautiful accommodations and boasts one of the most beautiful Oceanside views in the world. 

This beachfront resort provides a wonderful spot to relax and replenish under the warm Caribbean sun. Set on a spectacular beach, this adults-only resort offers the ultimate in comfort. Enjoy access to all the facilities within the Barcelo Resort complex (except the French and Spanish gourmet restaurants), along with these generous inclusions: snacks at all pool bars and at the disco, free entrance to the disco and Tropicalissimo Show, mini-golf, and giant chess. The facilities are so extensive here - there are even soccer and baseball fields, a horse ranch, an on-site church and one of the biggest convention centers of the Caribbean!

Location: Beachfront on spectacular Bavaro Beach, 45 minutes to Higuey, 15 minutes from the Punta Cana International Airport.

Excellent Stay at Barcelo Bavaro Beach Adults Only

Guys, I had an amazing time. We went on a girls trip (3 adult women) from 9/11-9/15/17. We traveled in right after Hurricane Irma and you couldn't tell there was even a storm. We have no problems from check in to check out. The hotel was pristine, one of the best pools I've ever seen and directly on the beach. Our hotel room was ocean facing with a balcony and just a VERY short walk to be at the ocean front in a chair. The buffet was excellent, reminded me of Vegas - the food was fabulous - even room service. The drinks kept coming and were of great quality. We spent all of our time either at the beach, or by the pool. Our trip was simply to relax and do little to nothing besides drink, soak up the sun and laugh. Our very favorite server - Alexandra Saint - met us everyday. She kept our drinks full while being a wonderful, kind human to be around - I truly enjoyed her company and she had the most contagious smile. She even asked to take a photo with us before we left, and hugged us so tight. She made our stay personal and over the top lovely. We had the premium level package, so wifi was free, access to all restaurants and room service was also free. There wasn't anything we had to pay for once we entered the hotel. We traveled for $1000 per person, including airfare - and absolutely got our money's worth. There was also a 20 minute free massage included that didn't disappoint. I have nothing I could complain about or do differently and will absolutely be coming back to this resort in years to come. We always felt safe. Couldn't recommend this resort high enough - and having no children around was FANTASTIC.

Perfect honeymoon

It was the best choice to spend our honeymoon! Beautiful beach with palms and white sand and crystal water, amazing views, big, clean swimming pool, nice hotel, very friendly and helpful staff, wonderful entertainment team, a lot of food to choose! We got from the hotel honeymoon tshirts, bottle of rum and breakfast to bed :) Every day there was a lot of shows and activities on the beach and in theather. No kids, quietness and a lot of drinks for free!There were 9 restaurants to choose a great variety of food, 7 of them were 'a la carta' - my best was the italian one ! The room could be refurbished, especially the bathroom, but we spent few time in the room so it wasnt problem for us! The only one negative thing is paid wifi ..In such resort it should be for free! Great value for money ! Anyway we will Highly recommend this place to everybody and hope to come back again one day !

So good we went twice!!!

We've been twice to this resort in 2014 and again in 2015, both times were within the first 2 weeks of October (falling into singles week) which whilst we were not involved in we found the entertainment around this great fun to watch we joined in with the foam pool parties and watched the various activities wasn't too loud for us, although you could move away from this at the beach. We found there were a majority of Americans/ Canadians at this resort, everyone was very friendly. You will find a lot of people who return year after year. We found the staff/ food very good on both occasions nothing really to complain about, we tried all of the restaurants, no problems (I will say that booking restaurants 'system' is absolutely crazy, there HAS to be an easier way!!) and also enjoyed the 'coffee bar' over on the other side of the resort it was air-conditioned and made fabulous drinks. We took canoes out around the bay which was free, also some little sail boats, we didn't try these. We took an excursion inland to the jungle/ lagoons this included a 4x4 buggie ride - my other half loved this! The beach and water around the hotel is beautiful, you can take a walk both directions and take in the other hotels also along the beach (left) you will find other water rides (parasailing etc) and a little market (a bit pushy) but you can find cheaper souvenirs here than the hotel. I would say that my ONLY disappointment is the fact there is NO free wifi - in my experience 99% of all inclusive hotels these days offer this & is provided as part of the price you pay for your holiday, we didn't opt to pay for it. You need to go to the souvenir shop opposite reception to purchase, Unless you have ridiculously high standards you not be disappointed...
