All Inclusive    

Barcelo Bavaro Beach, an Adults Only property, is located on one of National Geographic's Ten Best Beaches in the World, in dreamy Punta Cana. An ideal resort for couples seeking adventure and endless activities, this all-inclusive resort will particularly appeal to snorkeling enthusiasts and beach lovers. This lush oasis has reinvented itself with a complete renovation to become an adults-only resort.

Offering first-class comfort, 80% of its 589 rooms are located right on the beachfront, making this resort perfect for your friends' getaway or romantic interlude. As one of two hotels inside the Barcelo Bavaro Complex, guests also receive full access to the neighboring hotel and complimentary transportation services throughout the resort complex.

Enjoy the exquisite range of cuisines at ten restaurants in the Barcelo Bavaro Complex including the Caribbean Buffet, Chez Gourmet (international), La Brisa (Mediterranean), El Coral (Seafood), Santa Fe (Steakhouse), La Dolce Vita (Italian), México Lindo (Mexican), La Fuente (Spanish), Kyoto ($) (Japanese), and La Comedie ($).

There are so many fun-filled activities to fill your days; play a game of soccer, tennis, baseball, or bowling at the alley on site (additional fees apply). For golf enthusiasts, enjoy the scenic, palm-studded, P.B. Dye designed 18-hole course. Try your hand at snorkeling or windsurfing in the bright turquoise water. Lounge with your favorite Dominican Rum cocktail by one of the five pools, including a chill-out, relaxation pool.

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. Then let your inner James Bond out to play in the casino at the best gaming destination in the Caribbean (open 24-hours).

Love the people there. The hotel is nice. The bartenders Jensi and Hector where so lovely and fun. Waitresses Emily an Alexandria where are bar waitress at the pool. Over all, what a great place to go and a lot of things to do. We didn't even want to come home. More>

Not What I Was Looking For

When I selected an adults only resort, I thought there would be a more active vibe. If you want quiet and relaxation, this is for you. There was no music at the pool, no nightlife at our hotel. This is part of a big complex, so there was a Casino and a club that was a free shuttle ride away. Pros: Staff was helpful and spoke decent English, drinks were strong, it is right on the beach, A/C works very well Cons: Food was terrible, I paid for their wifi and I still had trouble accessing the internet and using Snapchat and Instagram, It was at least a $30 taxi ride to get off the resort, if you want to experience authentic Dominican food or clubs, you are on your own (which I do not recommend), Spa Services are ridiculously priced starting at $95 for a 25 minute massage, they do not take cash in any of the gift shops I would give 2 and half stars if possible. The food really bumped my review down, but the room was pleasant and the pool is beautiful. They let us use our speaker so we made our own pool party. The other pool users were happy to hear some music too and kept gravitating to our area! More>

Beautiful Property

The hotel's physical structure and landscaped surroundings are truly magnificent. We elected to go to the Adults Only part of the complex because we were celebrating a wedding anniversary and wanted a more relaxed experience. The beach is beautiful and not crowded. It is nice and shallow, shoulder deep where the buoys are (I am 5'7"), which allows for a nice swimming experience. There were plenty of options for those that want to go snorkeling and sailing but we did not partake in any of these activities. The food was "cruise like" with very good buffet options for breakfast and lunch. For dinner we tried some of the different restaurants that are included in the "all inclusive" cost of the vacation. These experiences were just ok. We did nit think that there was any option that could be called gourmet. The one we liked the most was the Spanish themed restaurant which had some menu options that could not be found in the regular evening buffets. The service at the restaurants was hit or miss. Some of the servers were extremely friendly and others were just doing what they had to do. Tips are included in the total cost but we did tip those that were very friendly and accommodating to us. One of the sommeliers, FRANCISCO SEVERINO, was particularly knowledgeable and took his time to make his wine recommendations. The wines list, however, was the same in all the restaurants, which I thought was a weak point. The alcohol. If you are into beers, the options were limited with the only beer on tap at no additional cost being Presidente, the Dominican pilsner, which is weak. The other beer options were very limited even if you wanted to pay extra. This was the theme with most liquors where the house brand was something I had never heard of and the other options were limited. I wished they had had a whisky bar or an area where you could try different beers even if it was at additional cost. Activities. They had a "show" every nght. They were similar to those on cruises. I was disappointed that there was not a small club in the adults only section to dance to the local rhythms. We did not go to the casino nor the disco which was in the Barcelo Deluxe. Sports. They have everything for the sports enthusiast. The golf course looked pretty but I do not play. They had basketball, beach volleyball, tennis, soccer, etc. and all in excellent condition. The Punta Cana airpor is fairly easy to maneuver and this property is only 30 minutes away from the airport. More>

Like Being In Heaven

We went to this resort for my birthday. We absolutely loved it and plan on going back soon. The room was beautiful and plush. The beach was gorgeous and we stayed in the water almost all day. No fighting for chairs as this was adult only. Only way to go. We did go to the Deluxe resort and kayaked for free. There is a train that runs every 15 minutes to the other resort where most of the restaurants are located. The International Restaurant was to die for as well as the Steak House. We were not too fond of the Seafood Restaurant. The pool was great. Drinks were flowing and we had a wonderful time. More>

If u are expecting good customer service and a quiet vacation; book elsewhere! The good: Pool, beach , small easy access resort. The grounds are breathtaking . Very clean. The bad : Food is in adondance but not warm , always the same, fried and way too salty. The salad bar is nice. Rooms are old . Bathroom is horrible. You hear your neighbors talking and walking. Paper thin walls. Remote didnt work, called it in but they did nothing... ( am still trying to figure this one out!). Needs major renovations. Beware of maid sevice; for some reason they cant do everything at one. So they are in and out of your rooms many times per day... They enter without knocking(!). No swim up bar, no beach bar. You have to get drinks at the chill bar next to pool; long lines and wait. What hotel doesnt have a beach and pool bar? The ugly : This hotel is located between many marinas and a natural pool at the end of the beach. And in front of the 3 man maid fish tanks. Therefore all you hear all day are speed boats + party boats go back and forth. ( Cancun style )... Youngs kids drinking , loud music, etc. Sometimes u hear the music from your hotel, the pool, and 3-4 different boats! OMG Left handside of the resort to avoid. It s a marina playing loud music and oathway for the locals to come to the beach. The locals come with their young screaming kids and sit among the resort chairs. Kids running around playing... In an Adult only resort! Security guards dont do anything about it. They actually dont do anything all day! At the Paradisus next door u can see there is strong security and making sure the guests are not bothered. Customer service + Club Premium = not worth your time or money. They have no clue how to deal with guests, they give out wrong information, they dont know what they are doing, the wait is soooo long, this hotel has so many thight rules that u feel in prison. They treat the spanish speaking guests way better others. U see it everywhere. Prices : excursions and SPA. Who pays 150$ for a 50 min massage? Is there a happy ending for that price?! And they are not professional therapist! And 150$ for a half day on the water, no food, no drinks... They are taking us for idiots. Last words: If this hotel was less expensive, I wouldnt bother writing this review. But it calls itself a 5 star resort but treats u like a 3. SPEND YOUR MONEY ELSWHERE... THEY ARE SO MANY NICER RESORTS IN PUNTA CANA FOR THE SAME PRICE! More>
