Kids free is policed effectively in this part of the resort. Nice pool area which has sufficient sun beds and attentive staff constantly circulating to bring you drinks if you can't summon the effort to walk the few yards to one of the bars! The "foam pool party" is good fun. The buffet restaurant seems to want to go for the record for diversity of dishes over quality, but is OK for breakfast, though quite who would want mashed potato for brekkie is a bit of a mystery. The other resort restaurants cater for most tastes, our favorites being Chez Gormet for its excellent Chateaubriand as well as Santa Fe steakhouse and La Comedie French restaurant. The misses included the Mexico Lindo Mexican which served surprisingly poor fajitas. Some places have a dress code for the evening, collared shirt and long trousers for the men. WiFi could be a bit flakey depending on your location.

Great vacation to start off the new year!

This was my first time at this resort. I arrived on January 1st on New Years. Nicely decorated for the Christmas holidays but the Christmas music went on until January 7th so by then as a Canadian, I had had enough of the Christmas ambiance by then. I was a little disappointed to see that the rooms and bathrooms are somewhat outdated but from my experience this seems to be typical for the Barceló resorts. Good service overall, food was good but only two evenings there were themed dinners (Russia & DR). Reservations required for the à la carte restaurant. Shows in the evening were very good but the "discothèque" is off site at the Palace so you either walk or take the shuttle which is somewhat inconvenient. Beach is well maintained, beautiful and not overly crowded like I saw in other resort areas further along the beach . Plenty of chairs on the beach for all. No vendors on the beach to harass you to purchase goods or excursions. Payed a hefty price for this trip which I suspect was because of the time of year, but the price was way too high for what it was worth.

Lobby Bar was the best!

We were looking for a quick getaway to the beach before the madness of the holidays. We booked this resort through a package deal, and were less than impressed. We had a rental car, so I don't know about transportation options to and from the resort. Parking was free, but that's where the amenities sort of stopped. After checking in we were informed that if we wanted to buy internet we had to go to the gift shop. The wifi prices were expensive considering most resorts give it to you free, and one would think that because you pay for it the reliability would be better. So we were escorted to our room on the far side of the property, and the room was spacious with an adequate bathroom and a strange area of open floor space. It was mostly quiet in our room other than when housekeeping tried to come in at 7:20 a.m. The food was lackluster at the buffet, and there were often many dishes recycled the following meal and day. We ate at the specialty Mediterranean restaurant, and it wasn't very special. The lobster bisque tasted like burnt gravy, the lobster was old and tasteless, and the service was super slow. We tried the house wine, but it was barely drinkable. We mainly survived on pasta at the buffet and drinks at the lobby bar. Needless to say, we won't be returning to this property. Russian karaoke was interesting, but the servers were missing in action. The beach seemed nice at first, but boats are constantly passing by close to the shore and stirring up the silt, seaweed and surf. There's a "dolphin pen" out in the water with a great deal of traffic. The pool isn't heated and there isn't a jacuzzi. I've stayed at plenty of all-inclusive resorts throughout Mexico and the Caribbean, and needless to say this was probably my least favorite. We were talking to some Russians about how they ended up there and when they told us what they paid my jaw dropped. The property is nice, but the resort could use a bit of work.

Great Trip

Had a wonderful stay at Barcelo Bavaro Beach, we met great people from around the world, including a special newlywed couple from Chile. We gave Bavaro Beach 5 stars for the hard working staff from check in to check out everyone was helpful and friendly. We tipped lightly but good manners and a smile got us good service wherever we went. The room was clean and in good condition for an older building. The beach is gorgeous, plenty of chairs and shade from the palm trees. The food was pretty good for an AI, we’ve stayed at several resorts in Mexico and Jamaica and this was some of the best. There are several restaurants to choose from each featuring a different cuisine. A word on the dress code, while I don’t particularly like to get dressed up, we all want a first class dining experience. We figure this is how to do our part. Overall the resort is huge and you can always find something to do shopping, sports, bars, a nice spa and theaters: then when you got tired of all the activity you could return to the adult only side and relax. This is a place we would return to again, we thought it gave us good value for our money.
