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.

Beautiful hotel, the staff wasn't the friendliest that we have experienced. Breakfast was good! Reservations for the restaurants were not available or already booked for some of the restaurants we wanted. Our experience was good.

Really enjoyed our anniversary trip

This was our second visit to the Barcelo Bavaro Beach Resort. We upgraded to Premium this time. The price difference was pretty small so if that was the case we would do it again. The grounds, pool and beach are all beautiful and well kept. There were storms out to see while we were there which created a lot of seaweed. They had bull dozier and dump trucks out in the evenings and crews racking during the day to keep the beach as clean as possible.The activity staff during the day is great! They work really hard to be sure that everyone is having a good time. The evening entertainment is very good. You can tell that they put in a lot of time and effort on these shows. Some where more to our taste than others but they were all good.The specialty restaurants that we tried were all good. La Brisa was our favorite for lunch. The main buffet has a good selection and you can easily find something that you will like. The service in the main buffet was not as good as on our last visit. It was still good but not outstanding like it was 2 years ago.The room was always clean and well taken care of. It is however, pretty dated. The rooms and bathrooms could really use a refresh. The rooms are not bad and would not keep me from returning! We were in the 6000 building this time, right next to La Brisa.The only excursion we did was the 2 hour glass bottom boat tour from the beach vendor next to the resort and really enjoyed it. The staff were very entertaining and friendly.We look forward to returning to Punta Cana and would stay here again.

Amazing time

As a frequent traveler and a very picky one at that I must say that This resort exceeded all my expectations. The entertainment staff is like no other(the best part of my trip).. wonderful upbeat friendly. There's is always something to do.. whether it's activities during the day or shows and clubs offered at nights we never felt the need to leave the resort to have a good time. The food is amazing the beach and pool is awesome.. and we had access to all other parts of the resort which was nice. Overall An amazingly good experience and I can't wait to book it again next year.

Very good service

Overall the food and accommodation were good. I enjoyed the activities and the people who organized them were very energetic and funny. The only thing that I was not pleased with was the quality of the house wine. It would be nice if they could offer a couple of choices. The place is very well maintained and beautiful landscape. The serves were very nice and warm, especially Raifel Pena.
