Gorgeous beaches, countless amenities and special thanks to the wonderful Johan in customer services for helping us through some bumps, with kindness and going the extra mile. a few rude experiences led to frustration re: internet, but Johan saved the day. Language barriers made a few times sticky, but we had a grand time in this gorgeous resort. plenty to do, loads of options, and many helpful staff members made us feel so welcome. thanks to Johan and Evelyn R. too for your help!

My first experience at an all inclusive resort. The resort itself is a large complex. The adult side was much quieter and less crowded. Most restaurants and activities are at the other end of complex with a train that provides rides every 10 minutes or so. I liked the perks of Club Premium and used room service daily for coffee and breakfast. Check in and out were no problem.
Pros: Resort grounds pretty , Beautiful beach with plenty of chairs available. Some seaweed but was cleaned up daily. We had no problem with wifi.
Pools were also beautiful, a little more difficult finding chairs poolside. We found the service on a whole to be fine and very little difficulty with language barrier.
Cons: food everywhere was average but really is to be expected anytime a facility cooks for so many people. I am not fond of buffets and by day 6 was done. My sister was sick for several days
after eating lobster . The biggest disappointment and reason I would not return or recommend was our room. On arrival the room we were given appeared dirty with hair all over bathroom, on bed , something like lotion? smeared on bathroom seat in vanity area. Stains on bed cover. They moved us to another room 6000 building 3 rd floor. Wonderful view but again room was very disappointing and I am not an overly picky person. Curtains ripped, stains on doors, finishing on tile in bathroom terrible. Walls thin - you can hear everything your neighbor is doing. One night 11 pm we heard loud banging,glasses rattling, furniture moving and discovered it was housekeeping cleaning the room !! Really reminded me of an outdated motel 6. Room service was spotty, sometimes you received your bottled water or not and considering you brush your teeth with it I expect it daily! When you pay that kind of money and upgrade to club premium I expect better!
I will add it is my understanding that some rooms have been remodeled and may be better.

was at this resort the first two weeks of February 2015. This was a very nice place to visit but the customer service was poor at best. The hotel was overbooked for the entire two weeks and we didn't receive the room we had paid for and an upgrade wasn't available due to the fact it was overbooked. A late checkout was requested upon arrival but not accommodated upon departure. Nobody at the resort was concerned with correcting the room problem including the Air Transat representatives. This all inclusive resort charged for room service and there was nowhere to eat throughout the day when the buffets were closed. Go to Punta Cana but stay at Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe as it was a lot better in every way.

The most odd thing about the "adults" only is the swim up bar is at the big pool with all the children. There isn't a swim up bar at the adults only section. If you like quiet and being by yourself on the beach, then stay at the adults only pool.
I question the cleaning schedule of the resort. There was a stain on my sheets when we checked in so I avoided it the first night and put the card on the bed to change sheets. That stain remained in the exact same place for ALL SIX nights!! Were the sheets ever changed?? NO!!! The bathtub did not drain. There were three people in our room so the second and third people were in standing water from the folks before us. Did we contact the front desk to have it looked at? Yes, repeatedly. Never fixed. Sunday the room was never cleaned. There were housekeeping girls down the hall so we asked for towels. They took all our dirty ones and gave us less towels. We only got facial cloths one night. Hand towels are quite big to use as wash cloths. The mini bar was not restocked daily. My suggestion is to empty it and call for someone right away so at least you get a fresh supply, because they will NOT fully restock.
The Barcelo was also "kind enough" to call before 8:30 AM on the first day for us to schedule a departure time. Why in the world would you call jet lagged folks so early? Why wouldn't this be automatically set up when you book through a vacation club?
Wifi is not included in the "all inclusive" fee. You pay $35 for access.
The resort credit are a bit of a joke. Barcelo should go to Hard Rock in Punta Cana to see a good resort credit program. We only used $10 of the supposed $2,000 resort credit. Hard Rock has staff getting drinks for you by the pool/beach areas. Barcelo lacked.
Most of the restaurants are good. Chez Gourmet was by best, following by the Japanese (which is not "all inclusive" as you had to pay an additional $15, The Mexican place was good. The steakhouse makes everything well done so if you want it any other way, you'll be disappointed. The seafood restaurant was horrible--avoid that at all costs. The buffets were good when the food was first put out as hot foods were hot and vice versa. After a few hours of sitting, obviously not so much. There are make your own pasta stations which are very good. Tip: ask for a Coke with no ice. They ice glasses ahead of time allowing them to melt and making Coke become watery. Coke comes out cold, so no ice needed.
The casino is quite small. The "Disco" does stay open late, but is sparsely attended and music is VERY loud. Took two days to hear right. Grounds are very nice to walk to the adjoining Barcelo properties.
Overall, was disappointed with the Barcelo for the price. They only reduced fee by $100 for three people in a room with double beds. They brought a squeaky COT for the third person. Next time, make it adjoining rooms so everyone gets a bed. My three stars is for the beach and weather. Resort itself is two stars. We enjoyed ourselves, but felt ripped off with the cost, not being restocked, cleaned, and "resort credit."
Next year, I will pay the extra and stay at Hard Rock as the Barcelo doesn't seem to want repeat business.
Beautiful beach, poor food and service.

I went to this resort in February 2015. If this is your first all inclusive vacation, I'm sure you would like it. We have been on several trips over the past few years and this place ranks at the bottom for my wife and I. Bavaro Beach is beautiful, but the service is average at best and the food was really not good. We went as a group with 5 other people joining us. 6 out of the 7 of us are still recovering from diarrhea from food that was not stored or cooked properly. We were placed on antibiotics after still being sick a week after we returned home. If you like going to the bathroom 8-10 times a day and your stomach killing you, then this is the place for you! My wife and I take 2-3 trips a year, we will NEVER go to another Barcelo Resort again!
