Our Opinion

Although listed as a 5, this 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 to have one of the most beautiful Oceanside views in the world. The Barcelo Bavaro Beach is a family friendly resort. However, there are options of staying in an adult exclusive area for those looking for quieter and more discreet scenery.

This beachfront resort provides a wonderful spot to relax and replenish under the warm Caribbean sun. Set on a spectacular beach, it 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.

Had the time of my life...

We unknowingly arrived during "Single's Week" and it rocked. We had the chance to meet people from all around the world while having an spectacular time. Juan, Sarah, and all the other in charge of the activities were very helpful and fun. We had a really nice time with everyone, and felt right at home. Looking forward to going back!

A relaxing & beautiful place to stay!

Cleanlines ranking of 4.5 stars. La brisa, chezgourmet, and steakhouse restaurants are 5 stars. Attention and from employees, 4 stars. This mainly because some of the bartenders. Their attention was slow and not very friendly, like we are used to.

Not a four star hotel

The hotel has beautiful well kept grounds. The room had a musty smell. There was old paint on the mirror. Housekeeping did a terrible job if that. There was a bug in the bathtub and hair in there and I did not use it. They did not empty the garbage for two days. Never replaced the washcloths either. I complained and all they did was give some extra bathroom amenities. The service in the buffet was slow. There were empty trays off food that flys were sitting in. The air conditioning was limited. It was so humid outside and to eat food outside was very uncomfortable. You had to get your own drinks most of the time. Some soda was flat. The orange juice was sweet one day and sour the next The bartenders did not know how toMake a margarita. The pina coladas were not sweet nor thick. The daiquiris were like drinking strawberry juice. There was no music at the beach or poolUntilMaybe 3pm-4pm. The pool closed at 8pm which was too early. The shows and specialty restaurants were in the other building. No air conditioning in the theater or walkways. Some of the staff were very nice and some weren't. The ones that were great were clarkson miller and Evelyn in guest serviceIt was very disappointing. I would try another hotel. There is no way this was a four star hotel
