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.

Amazing spot for vacation

We came here for our honeymoon and we couldn't have been more happy with our visit. The staff is very friendly. We did the premium level package and got VIP service at all times. The restaurants are good but Chez Gourmet, Santa Fe Steakhouse and Kyoto are far above the other's. The buffet food is average. I would recommend this to all who are looking for an amazing all inclusive resort. Very pleased and will be coming back again!

Beautiful Vacation

I have been fortunate to visit 4 islands in Hawaii on two different occasions, all over the Caribbean and many places within the US. I have been to Punta Cana 4x and by far this was the most beautiful place I have been. The beach is as good as it gets. The accommodations were spotless with many amenities. Staff were professional and always pleasant! The food was not bad for an all inclusive. It is noteworthy that adults only does not have a swim up bar. Saying that the bar(s) are all easily accessible and there are waitresses circling the pool to take orders.

Excellent Stay at Adults Only

We had a great stay over Easter and enjoyed every minute of the 'Adults Only' experience at Barcelo.There was exceptional food for an all inclusive in particular the two ala cartes on the adult side. The service was great and the staff were working hard at keeping the guest happy. Language was an issue at times but with a little patience it all worked out.Resort is the older of the two In the Barcelo complex but very well kept. Rooms are spotless and the staff do a good job of maintaining the property. The Palace next door is newer and massive. Lots to offer with the additional restaurants, casino, golf, sports bar and other amenities. But we preferred the quiet side at the 'Adults Only' Definitely would consider going back.

Absolutely Gorgeous, Luxury Living

This property is absolutely gorgeous. This was my favorite hotel I have ever stayed at in all of the Caribbean- it is adults only, which was amazing, but if you wanted more "action" a train would take you over to the mixed side and the bars were more lively there. The pool was gorgeous and it was super serene. Highly recommend- and if I ever go back to the Dominican - this is where I would stay.

Terrible Resort - Not a vacation

I am a very experienced traveler so this review is not coming from someone who left the country for the first time. We stayed at this resort for a work trip. Every single day we left the resort to go find edible food and real alcohol. The food is absolutely terrible. The buffets are worse than my elementary school cafeterias and the service is just as bad. The rooms are disgusting and have not been updated in years. The sheets were stained and no would change them. And you are only allowed one towel that you have to keep up with on the resort. Seriously the worst out of the US trip I have ever been on. I knew going into this trip that this is not a hotel that I would have ever picked but I was amazed to see that it was 10x worse than I expected.
