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.

Beautiful beach!
ditom67,
Thu Apr 28 12:05:43 EDT 2016
This was our fourth trip to Punta Cana and our best. The beach was expansive and beautiful, the grounds meticulous, the staff couldn't have been nicer, the rooms were always clean and well serviced. Absolutely loved doing yoga on the beach with Leticia and Stephanie who were so super friendly. We did visit the Barcelo Bavaro Palace where we had exchange privileges and couldn't say enough about it. The meals, particularly in the specialty restaurants were the best we have had in our four visits to Punta Cana, as well as the entertainment, which was top notch. COMPLAINTS: My only complaints are that there was no swim up bar in an adults only property. My husband doesn't drink; however, it is always nice to wind down a beach day with a cocktail at the pool bar before getting ready for dinner. Also, the room, although it was very roomy, was a bit outdated and disappointing, and the sliding glass door was very difficult to open due to the accumulation of rust. As a matter of fact, when I first tried opening it, it fell out of the track on me and I had to call my husband for assistance since it was quite heavy. Lastly, there was no convenient gym at the Adults Only. We had to go to the Palace Resort, which was an inconvenience. I would definitely stay at this property again, but perhaps the next time would be the Barcelo Bavaro Palace. More>

The Good The Bad and The Ugly

It's difficult to write this review because the resort did so many things well but failed miserably on some of the most simple things that make your holiday memorable. The title pretty much says it all. The Good - Anything to do with the golf facility. You won't be disappointed as the course and staff were outstanding. - The overall complex is clean and very well put together. - The beach was probably the best I've seen and we've been to the Caribbean 10 times. However, you'll need to see ugly for further details. - Food in the a la cart restaurants were above average with exception of the Mexican one. - Staff all very friendly and quite helpful at times. - Pools nice but I'm not a pool guy. Lots of drinking but they never leave the pool. - House beer is fine but wears on you after a while. ($5 for 2 Corona's) - The lady running the pasta station at Le Breeza. :) The Bad - Towels in our room were worn out and should have been replaced years ago. You shower twice a day with 120 grit towels and you'll understand what I'm talking about. - Beach towel, you can only have one at a time? The lounge chair is twice as long as the towel so I'm now sitting on a sweat and sunscreen stained chair that others have used before me. Hmmmm. - No Crown Royal at the bar. Everything else but the one I like. - Coffee at the buffet is not good. You'd think that the DR would have assume coffee like Jamaica does but you'd be wrong. - Bathroom in our ocean view suite needs to be renovated. A bath tub, really. - Ocean view room is about 300 yards off the beach and mainly blocked by palms. But you can see the ocean so unless your paying extra for the premium be prepared. - Buffet was average. The pasta lady was the exception as I stated. The Ugly - $40.00 USF for wifi service. After what I paid to stay there. Come on. - The house wine is undrinkable. Honestly, I've sampled over 600 bottles of wine and I have never seen one this bad. But they have a great wine list you can purchase from if your willing to spend $35 USF and up for a bottle. I'm out $400.00 :) - The commercial noise on the beach. Be warned because at 12:01 it starts. Everyday, party boats, power boats, helicopters(4) and they don't stop until the sun starts to go down. To sum it up, would I go back. Probably not. For the money we spent I think we'll head back to the Iberostar in Jamaica or Secrets in Mexico. More>

Disappointed and Customer Service is lacking!

My girlfriend and I booked a one week stay at the Barcel贸 Bavaro Beach property to get away and relax. The transport from the Airport to and from the resort was seamless. However, when we got there, we were disappointed on several levels, which I will summarize below. However, the biggest disappointment and tell of their customer service came when they called our room and asked us, as a Barcel贸 club member, for our comments. I noted many of the items below and she said she would let management know. This occurred on our 2 day of our stay. WE NEVER HEARD BACK FROM THEM. This tells you what Barcel贸 thinks of their customers. They don't care. Good hotels will contact you and try to make your stay enjoyable in order to entice you back to their properties. Not Barcel贸 - extremely poor customer service! Accommodations: We had an ocean view room. The view was beautiful. Our room was average and beds were comfortable. The bathrooms however really need to be upgraded. They are old and very small. The lights flickered several times when we were there. We smelt smoke in our room one night from the ventilation. Restaurants: The buffet restaurant food was average. We were able to eat there each day at noon and breakfast and found something we liked each meal. A La Carte restaurants was the disappointment, in that they don't tell you there is only 1 A La Carte Restaurant at the Bavaro Beach resort itself. You have to take the train over to the massive sister resort for all other A La Carte Restaurants. We did this for 4 nights. The food was good in the majority of A La Carte's but the noise levels were insane. It was the last week of March break and there were TONS of kids everywhere. Also, the wine in the main bar at the resort tastes like grape juice. The wine in the restaurants was ok. Pools: There is only 1 pool on site and it has no swim up bar. There was service around the pool, but its not the same. Its nice to be able to sit at a swim up bar. If you wanted that, you could go over to the sister property which had a massive pool, but there were so many kids you couldn't enjoy yourself. The spa services were also there and were very expensive. Gym: we utilized the gym 5 days and the cardio equipment is ok, but the weight equipment is very dated and there was no cleaner to wipe it down with after your workout. It also didn't appear to be properly air conditioned. Both of us have travelled extensively in the carribean and across the country. This is more like a 3 star hotel. Neither of us will be returning to a Barcel贸 property. Go Melia or RIU or Baiha Principe. . More>

Most buildings have some sort of view of the ocean or the gardens. We loved our soothing ocean view from the moment we woke up in the morning 'till the end of the day. Rooms are comfortable with most necessities. Bathrooms are totally supplied with toiletries above the average hotel supplies. What really impressed us was the customer service orientation of the staff and the overall cleanliness of the grounds. Just to mention a few names of those who we interacted with and had great memories of are Sandy the director, Evelyn from Guest Services, Maria the vine steward, Gabriel from the main restaurant and Ramon the bell boy. Unfortunately we can't recall the main bar's manager's name, but he also made sure that our needs and wants are always met. The overall attitude of the employees is to make your stay the most pleasant and memorable. The beach is breathtaking white sand, except it's a little noisy from the engines of the boat rental next door and from the daily musical entertainment activity from near by. This seems to be a little problem if you wish to really relax and enjoy the scenery. They should have a quiet area for people who would only like to do that. The food is good in the main restaurant, but it could include a little more variety. The specialty restaurants are a good experience to try. We enjoyed our stay despite of some minor issues. More>

Really enjoyed the activities. Yoga & water aerobics on the beach with Marleny were my favorites. The variety of restaurant's was very good. Restaurants were all top notch - very clean and tasty too. Housekeeping and grounds maintenance did a wonderful job keeping everything beautiful inside and out. Angel gave us his extension number to call for rides, and was always there when needed. Golf course was beautiful and challenging. Had a great restful vacation. Highly recommend Barcelona Bavaro Beach! More>
