Our Opinion
The Bavaro is a decent resort option for those looking for a great deal. The amenities in this resort are fairly adequate. The most notable part of this resort is the beach. The beach area is relatively close to the resort, making it a prime spot for those who are looking to lounge by the sea. Friendly and attentive staff. The food items are OK for the value that it comes with. Overall, the Bavaro is a decent stay in Punta Cana. If you're looking for something more high-class however, it's best to look at other options.
Bavaro Beach is the Dominican Republic's most exclusive resort destination, thanks to its fine white sand bathed by the beautiful Caribbean Sea with crystal clear and emerald tone waters. Whala!bávaro is located in an excellent location that offers a wide variety of sport and leisure activities.
Location: Situated in the Corales area of Bavaro, 25 minute drive from the Punta Cana Airport. 2-minute walk to Bavaro Beach (located across the street).

The beach, location and staff made this special

We spent a good amount of time planning where to holiday this year and decided to go a bit further than usual. Great start as we were offered cold drinks while we were checking in. The room was clean and kept spotless all week, anything you leave lying around is arranged tidily when you get back. Food was much better than I expected after reading some of the reviews, we always found a good selection and the grilled fish one night was really good. Location wise the beach is a stones throw and there are hammocks or beds and they were always free. The hotel staff are friendly and most were cleaning all day long. The bar staff were great and we never had an empty glass all holiday. The weather was fantastic for the full 2 weeks always in the 30s so make sure you use a high factor sun tan lotion , I got a bit too cooked on day 2 but luckily got my act together and enjoyed it. Fantastic place to let go and relax. We would stay again.

Good base and comfortable.

Booked our room at the airport of Santo Domingo more expensive than we should have paid but for some reason same day reservations are more expensive everywhere else. The hotel is one of the smaller properties of Punta Cana but it is located in an O.K. area & steps away from the beach. No problem with parking here which was great for us. We did not spend too much time in the hotel but our room was very clean and the air.con. didn't make too much noise.

Nice room , good location

Hotel is ok but nothing special. Room (i had superior) was ok (new furniture, clean comfortable 2 double bed) . Generally cleanlinnes is in whole hotel. Rooms are cleaned every day . Corridors and rest of hotel is clean. Hotel has 3 swimming pools. not big but not small. Food was ok but variety wasn't big. Often it wasn't enough knifes, forks , plates and you have to wait for it. Also fruits and other meals you have to wait for supply . About 50 m to the beach. Location in the city is noting special . To local center is about 200m where you can find few stores . Rest of the city is quite far from the hotel .

Lovely stay.

Good hotel in an okay location and relatively close to restaurant/shops and bars. Staff make this hotel so much better than what it is. The rooms are basic but kept clean and cleaners come in daily to change towels but they change sheets only once every 3 days. We had a good time and give it 9 out of 10.

  • SungoddessOntario : Barrie

We travelled to Whala Bavaro Oct. 2016. Pretty boring place. No entertainment during the day or evening. Small beach. 3 pools, but only one pool bar. We never had to fight for lounge chairs. Food was excellent. Not a big variety, but always found something to eat. Restaurant is too small for the resort. Had to line up for breakfast and dinner. Rooms were nothing special.
