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.

So much fun

The place is great and staff is very accommodating and friendly. Never a dull moment with the entertainment. Beautiful pool area and the buffet restaurant has great choices for lunch and breakfast. The entertainment crew is so much fun (damaris, josue, julio, etc) become your friends while there.

3rd. time here in a year

This is my 3rd. trip in a year to Barceló Bavaro Beach-Adults Only and I can't get enough of it, the resort is amazing, the service, rooms, restaurant, beach, pool, I love everything about it. I would like to give a shout out to Jesus in Guest Service for his kinds attentions and help. This is one of my favorites resort in Bavaro, Thinking of my next vacay there before the end of the year. I've stayed at the Palace as well, but since I traveled with my husband this is the Bavaro Beach is perfect for couples. See you soon!!

Extraordinary vacation

This resort is phenomenal. We had the best service from Julio, Efrain, and Juan. They made our time there enjoyable and relaxing. We never wanted for anything. Efren and one even brought us downtown one night to show us the sites. The activities at the pool and the Evening shows entertained us for a whole week. The rooms were clean and the food was delicious. The drinks were top notch and the pool was gorgeous. I would definitely recommend this resort. What an unbelievable vacation! We are planning to meet some of our friends that we had met at the same time next year.

Pre-Birthday Celebration for 2

We upgraded our package to premium level & for what? A beautiful view from our ocean front room? Unfortunately, this resort cant take credit for the view. Our room was dirty and outdated, not at all like the pictures of an ocean front room on their website. The girls in the premium level lounge were rude and put out by any questions we had, and there were many. Mostly about restaurant requirements and dress attire there and at the Palace. I got a map that all guests get with some scribbles and no help as far as reservations, attire etc. just marks of all of the restaurants, pretty sure I can follow a map- thanks. A hurry up and get out of our lounge attitude. Even worse treatment if you didn't speak fluent Spanish. I understand it, and all of their rude comments as well. Food at the buffet was mediocre at best, some things down right inedible. Lived on pineapple and salad, along with a few breakfast muffins. Sports Bar at the Palace was the best food we had, isn't that sad? The first day we checked in our air conditioning wasn't working, Maintenance showed up quickly and had it working in an hour or so. A gal bringing us Rum and a chocolate dessert walked in on my husband while he was changing. No I'm sorry or any explanation just an "hola". Later that evening we were trying to take a nap somebody entered our room and exited immediately. We also had an incident where we found an empty beer can stored behind our bathroom door. (assuming from the wet bar) We drink beer but not Coors Light so we aren't sure how that came about. We talked to someone at the check in desk requesting a Manager about the empty can, because we were weren't happy with our treatment in the premium lounge. Only for them to direct us that way anyway. We were interrogated like we did something wrong. My husband was tripping on the date and time of one of the incidents because of their attitude, and rolling of their eyes, he was so uncomfortable. No input on how it would be handled only a brief statement about running the security tapes. Yes please do and let is know who entered our room and exited around 4-6pm on 6/13 (after maintenance left)? Also who drank the beer? Our claims were blown off I can assure you. I am not sure about you all, but I didn't feel very safe and was NEVER reassured. We had to haul our luggage down for airport pick up as well because they rarely answered their phone in premium level. When you visit a new country/ new resort doesn't everyone hope for a smile and some cordial direction? Please do visit Punta Cana, DR it is beautiful, but don't waste your money on this resort and don't waste another penny on an upgrade to premium level to get low-end service.
