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.
Overview

Casual relaxed atmosphere

This hotel is really casual and idea for disconnecting. The staff do a good job of being kind of quiet and out of the way while keeping things running behind the scenes, it hardly feels like a hotel and more like a private villa in a resort, we felt we were in our own ocean view home just the two of us. That, including a gym, spa, private chef...all the things we wish we had in our home! The negative to mention is that checking out took a long time because we were confused by a charge and needed it explained and, but everything else were positives.

Best deal in punta cana!

First i must say: I'll be back...This hotel is rigth by town, markets, pharmacies, stores at walking distance. But if not needed going outside the resort is a NO,because is a all inclusive.. Buffet is good, pools are great and el cortecito beach is rigth outside the hotel , there is snack bar and an all inclusive drinks except for premiun brands, open to late hours with music... My room was big, good A/C, flat TV, good shower for some reason salty water, nobody there can't explain why but they offer regular bottled water. Facilities clean,gardens well maintenanced.. Nice crowd..must pay for wifi and i didn't see any live entertainment.. No free airport transportation..but you can't beat their prices for an all inclusive in punta cana..Going back soon!!

Good times and memories in Punta Cana

I stayed in Whala hotel in mid May for a few nights over the weekend, I have very good memories and would return to the hotel as an affordable place to stay with nice grounds, clean areas and good service. Front reception staff were awesome, I wish I could remember their names. The location is beautiful and quiet when we stayed there. Really reasonable prices for drinks and room, like I said, good memories.

Some details to note

This hotel like any other ones had its down falls but overall I would come back. As a Spanish speaker it was fairly simple to get around and communicate well with all the staff including the bartenders and security guards. There were a lot of European tourists which was very unexpected! Once you are at the beach there is a small hut where you can get lunch items all afternoon long and a bar where if you have a wrist band, it is endless drinks. The wrist band has an additional cost but it is well worth it because you get endless drinks your whole stay, buffets for breakfast lunch and dinner and there is an additional restaurant that you can dine in with reservations which again its included with the wrist band. A lot of sales men on the beach that can be a bit harassing but if you stay within your area and use those beach chairs, the security will sometimes be nice enough to tell them to leave you alone. The hotel itself because it is so close to the beach has salty water in its bathroom including the showers. Very unexpected. Overall its a couple steps away from the beach, staff is crazy friendly and welcoming and souvenir shops and the market is just around the corner.

STAY AWAY: NOT SAFE FOR FEMALE TRAVELLERS

My review continues to not get posted with the full story, so I am going to cut out a lot of the details and keep it vague in hopes that it will get posted to save a woman looking to book a trip with another woman from STAYING AT THIS RESORT. I am a young female, well travelled, who stayed at Whala Bavaro with my best friend, another young female well travelled. We fled the resort at 2 am after only 12 hours of being there. I was DRUGGED by staff. We were put in a room with no proper locks, no phone, and 4 ways to break into our room.There is a prostitution ring being ran out of the "Yoga Studio" that is connected to the resort. You have to walk down a sketchy alley past locals who are selling drugs to get to the beach bar. Raw sewage is being pumped into the ocean from the resort. If you are going here, keep an eye on the women/girls you are travelling with, do not leave them alone. You should just avoid this place all together.
