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 the facilities within the Barcelo Resort complex, 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 resort at a value price.

The ground were beautiful and all the resturants were in walking distance or the tram came every 15 min. I always felt safe as I walked around the resort. I believe the wait staff were not used to solo travelers so they continued to ask inappropriate questions about my family or friends. I enjoyed the resort and would return in the future.

A Great 4 Days of Relaxation

Just spent 4 lovely days at the adults only section of Barcelo Bavaro in Punta Cana. Lots to love at this resort. We really appreciated the adults only options at the pool, beach and at the buffets. So relaxing and easy. The buffet food was good and we especially liked the smaller buffet by the beach to eat outside near the ocean. Food at the restaurants was fair, but about what I expect for all inclusive food. The restaurants at the resort are all beautiful and designed well. The food looks good too, it just was generally bland and flavorless. The Mexican restaurant was by far the best in flavor. Service was very good everywhere. The pools are gorgeous and well maintained and we loved the beach with its stand of palm trees to gather around and get some shade. It never was too hard to get chairs no matter the time of day so we loved that. Only a few negatives to report. We wished there was a swim up bar in the adults only section. I love a swim up bar and having to go to the Palace to find one and then endure kids jumping off of the stools and splashing everywhere diminished the enjoyment. Also, the rooms at the adults only resort are definitely too old and need updating. The bathrooms especially need work. It was a good sign that they seemed to be gutting and redoing the rooms in the 5000 block while we were there. Hopefully, they will get to all of the other buildings soon. Also, our room safe stopped working on our 2nd day and despite reporting it and being told it would be fixed, it never was. Small things given a lovely resort and a great price. I'd definitely go back especially if they update the rooms.

Good deal

Overall nice resort. Very large. Lovely beach but no servers on beach. Also very little shade on beach. Rooms were clean but two double beds for an adult only resort. Felt there should have been more of an explanation of amenities and restaurants, show times. No complaints but no wow factor either. Enjoyed our stay and the price is right.

This was a trip planned for my husband's 40th birthday. It was our first time visiting the Dominican Republic and not our last trip. The resort was beautiful and the staff were so great and happy the whole time we were there!
