For ultimate relaxation, take advantage of a 45-minute hydrothermal circuit at the full-service wellness center. There are also two massage beds right in the pool area for your pleasure. When the sun sets, the nights heat up in the spectacular theater, inspired by Las Vegas with two levels of entertainment for you to enjoy, a bar on each level and waitress service so that you do not miss any of the fabulous shows.

5th visit/review and we are reserved for 2018

We've been coming to the Dominican Republic for 25 years and have settled into Punta Cana, Barcelo Bavaro Beach Adults for the last 5 years. My other reviews for this resort have high praise and more detailed information. This is a small quieter older place attached to a mega resort that has lots of activities, kid activities, water parks, Pete Dye golf Course, Casino, Spa, shows and restaurants. It's a great value. Uncrowded beach, plenty of chairs and coconut palms swaying in the breeze. Lots of day activities or do nothing your choice! Evening, clean up, dress up, eat here or take the trolley over to one of the inclusive Ala Cart restaurants At Palace Deluxe. Take in a show, then stroll back to the quiet of Barcelo Beach Adults. The staff from top management to the grounds keepers are just the best, friendly and helpful. We run into other guests that have been coming to this resort for over 20 years. Each year the group of people that we wish to thank gets bigger and bigger. So many wonderful folks, too many to list. We hope that our very positive comments to management are considered. So many treat us like friends and family. We miss them and are anxious to return. Important: In the past we have booked through the major package internet companies. Good value. For next year we contacted a reservation specialist at Barcelo.Com. We are very glad we did, great value! We are booked for 2018 and looking forward to it.

overall very nice experience, lovely grounds, gorgeous beach and clean white powder sand. Tons of chairs on beach, but if you want a special place around the huge pool, better take a towel around 9am. Friendly staff. (even with the language burier!) Huge shout out to the great Jesus in Guest Services, Jhonatan and Tamares and the super hard working entertainment staff who try their best to engage the guests. They can only do so much. Quiet hotel if you are looking for a very relaxed atmosphere. Stayed in 6000 block. A 5 min walk to the children friendly resort, restaurants, small casino and main theatre and shops. We were in 6036, baby view of the beach from our small but adequate balcony. Older big room - they do look exactly like the photos, so no surprise . They are in need of an UPDATE big time for a 4+ star hotel , especially the bathrooms. shower fixtures not shiny chrome and there was a little rust and mould. Grout was repainted and touched up. Our tub would not drain, which we called about, but not able to resolve. Water pressure and temp was very good. Beds very comfy and soft sheets. A/c NICE AND COLD. Rooms were very clean. Housekeeping came in a couple of times -even if sign was not on door. kind of odd. Sometimes we got everything replenished, sometimes not, we called for what we needed and it came within 1/2 hour . Again, a bit of language burier, but nothing major, we are in their country, after all! Food was good. some meals better than others , however some a la carte were super slow..2 hrs?! Coral Seafood, the Japanese and Buffets were wonderful.

Fabulous Vacation!

We got back yesterday from the most amazing vacation I have ever had! The property was clean, the grounds were luxurious, and the beach was spectacular! There were no pushy vendors on the beach. Never a problem finding a chair. We were just looking for a quiet place to sit and relax and that's what we found. The beach had white fine sand and aqua water that you could swim out deep. We did yoga every morning on the beach. We were drawn to the pool every afternoon for fun activities led by the staff! We have never laughed so hard! Jhonaton and Mirtha had us up dancing every afternoon and evening. Demairas led Bechada dance lessons by the pool, she was such a comedian and had everyone laughing! We did some crazy spin the wheel game at the pool, and you would have to drink, or dance, or do something crazy. We just had a blast! I thought the staff was the best part of our trip! From the men who made our omelettes in the morning, to the housekeeping and grounds staff, we found everyone to be very friendly and kind. We loved our bartenders Jose and Angela by the pool and Jose and Angel at the inside bar. Maira Encarnacion took care of us every morning for breakfast. She would find us the perfect spot overlooking the beach. She kept the coffee and juice flowing in the morning and the red wine flowing at lunch. She felt like family and we looked forward to seeing her every day! IWe were waiting for the train to go over to the Palace, the guys came out and give us a ride in the golf carts! Reception was wonderful, we had an easy check in and check out process. Amiridoux checked us out and was very friendly and interested in how our stay was. The food was outstanding. We ventured over to the "Palace" side once and found it to be very commercial. It felt like you were walking through a mall. We were very happy to stay at the Beach Club side which was adults only. We loved La Brisa and Chez Gourmet and just decided to stay on our side of the resort. Most of the restaurants and the entertainment at night was open, and you had that beautiful Caribbean breeze flowing through. Both restaurants had wonderful servers and managers. Some nights we wanted to eat with friends we had met during the day and it was never a problem! We are planning a trip back and we are bringing friends! Thank you to everyone at the Barcela Bavaro Beach Club for giving us a great vacation!

Amazing Holiday!

We just returned from our vacation on April 10th. We booked through Air Canada Vacations and we're not pleased with our room. It was overlooking a road and a walkway. After making our displeasure known, we were moved after 2 days to a better room on the ground floor. We have used air Canada vacations for a trip to Costa Rica and same type of situation. Anyhow, drinks are fantastic at this resort. Make sure you ask for top shelf. Tip for each drink and they will definitely remember you. They are not expecting it but grateful for it. There are so many amazing people working at this resort and they will make your stay memorable. Walk the huge beach but you might want to bring flip flops as the beach isn't as beautiful as it is at the resort. I had a blister from the first day that got infected from walking along the beach and am still dealing with it. Food is good and enjoyed the a la carte dinners. I enjoyed chez gourmet the most, second was Sante fe and then the Mexican restaurant. I would recomend you go to the guest services as soon as you check in and book your dinners. We got the dinner slot we were looking for every night. Everyday you can find chairs by the pool or by the beach. We moved each day between the beach and pool and never had an issue finding a lounger. This is the first resort that we didn't leave to do day trips as we were looking for a quiet time. There was enough to do on the resort like playing tennis, table tennis, pool etc. We are now arranging for next year's vacation and hopefully getting our friends who have kids to book over on the palace side and we can book at the beach resort. We will meet them in the middle. As a person who has said they will never go back to the same place twice, I will be back!

Very good

Lovely rooms for an older resort. Good food though only 2 restaurants at our resort but taking the bus to the Bavaro Palace was an evening adventure. Loved the restaurants and shops at the Bavaro Palace. Beach was amazing and calm!! Lovely staff. Only issue is the music is too loud coming from the public speakers in and around the grounds AND the boats that go by all day long playing loud music (if you want peace and quiet).
