Mom and daughter's vacation

Posted Jul 9, 2017
I enjoyed my stay in this hotel. I will definitely come next year if not sooner. Very convenience, the beach was so close to my room. Everything else such as pools, bars, customers service desk, gift shops and treatro were with a close walking distance. The staff always had a smile on their faces and were polite. I had plenty of choices to different kinds of restaurants, Spanish, steak house, Mediterranean,Italian, Japanese, French and much more. All inclusive is the way to go.

Could be better

Posted Jul 6, 2017
Nice hotel and food, good facilities and close to everything, they can improve the quality of the rooms, they look like a 2 or 3 stars hotel. Mediocre night shows, really bad DJ in the disco.

All-Inclusive close to the beach with plenty to do

Posted Jul 5, 2017
Pros: The proximity of the rooms to the beach and pools were excellent.
Our stay was excellent. There are many activities to do on the resort which we took advantage of. They have two sections - one for families and one for only adults. We stayed at the adults only but we able to travel via free train to the other part which has mini golf, bowling, a casino/dance club and more restaurants. The pools and beach are very well kept. Everything was clean and tidy. We were able to book two excursions through guest services which was very easy to do and were very fun. The food at the restaurants and buffets were very good sometimes exceeding our expectations for being an all inclusive. The only problem we came across were the outlets weren't the same as the ones in the US which we should have probably thought about/researched beforehand. There was one behind the TV that we were able to charge our phones on. Also be advised that if you go off the resort it is a free for all to try and get your money. Vendors were intense when they were trying to sell us merchandise. We went to a beach as part of one of the excursions and a vendor had exotic animals they would put on you without asking and then try and charge you if you took pictures. Better to just say no thanks when they come near you. Overall we had a great time and would definitely recommend it to others.

Love, love, love

Posted Jul 4, 2017
Loved everything about our trip. It was amazing !! The staff was incredible. Beaches clean and beautiful. The food was awesome as well. The only complaint we had was kids were allowed to be on the sand and in the water in the adult section which was confusing.

Best Resort Stay Ever in Punta Cana

Posted Jul 3, 2017
Visited Punta Cana many times! Stayed at several different resorts. The Barcelo thus far has been the best! Incredibly diverse group of people from many parts of the world. All Welcome. The Adults only Reception Staff to the Guest Sevices team (Dioniris, Hilkania and Julio) to Housekeeping (Johanna) the Entertainment Team (Josue) were professional, helpful and polite and tons of fun! An absolute pleasure. Lots of games, activities on the beach and the grounds. And of course, Bavaro Beach warm and inviting - beyond beautiful! The USpa overseen by Maria and an informed, attentive and specialized team were superb! So many happy, fun-loving guest. Me included. I had an amazing time. One suggestion: upgrade the bathrooms and room furniture.

A Great Resort! Something for Everyone!

Posted Jul 3, 2017
Pros: Excellent 5 star dining opportunities at any of the 14 restaurants. An amazingly friendly staff. A truly relaxing environment.
Cons: I cannot think of a thing that could be improved, but as an idea, it would be great if the hotel offered guests a crash course in simple Spanish.
Location: We took a snorkeling day trip with a recommended vendor that was lots of fun. Also, I recommend taking a tour of Punta Cana if you can.
Barceló Bavaro All Inclusive Adult Resort provided us with a wonderful experience. The staff, restaurants and atmosphere were exceptional! We bought Premium Level Service and were greeted with champagne and concierge services at check in. The concierge services was available to us throughout our stay and there were many other benefits that came as a result of being Premium Level guests to include access to the spa, a 20 minute massage and more. Premium Level is the way to go!!! We were also able to visit the main/family side of the resort which features wonderful shopping, casino, disco, dining and multiple places to relax. The swimming pools are huge and the one on the main side has a swim up bar. This place has something for everyone.
