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).

Barcelo Bavaro Beach is great!
SCOTT R.
Jul 03 2017
My wife and I stayed at the Barcelo Bavaro Beach for our honeymoon. The place was very nice, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the food was really good. It was especially nice because the Barcelo Bavaro Beach resort is adults only and not overly crowded, but it comes with access to everything that the Barcelo Bavaro Palace resort has to offer (they are attached to each other and just a short walk or trolley ride from each other). I hope to go back and recommend it to anyone looking for a nice getaway!

Shoddy and Worn Beach Resort

Barcelo Bavero Beach hotel is well past any prime. Rooms are old, bathrooms are a 1050's cast off, and daily room maintenance is undependable and incomplete. Room description was deceptive (ocean front is without any view of ocean).

Did not have correct room ready, put us in another building, away from the group. moved us to a unclean room. One bedframe was broken, never had wash clothes not enough water. No swim up bar in pool, no drink service on the beach.

Been to Punta Cana many times. This is the only resort where staff did not seem happy and rarely smiled. Despite tipping. No beach service is unacceptable. No beach bar is a major bummer. No swim up bar in adults only area is not acceptable. If I had realized how far the only swim up bar was from the adults only section never would have booked here. Beautiful beach and hotel. There are way better out there. Prefer Iberostar

The only thing I would change is the acoustics in the theater at the Barcelo Palace. The one show was extremely hard to hear or understand.

My first complaint is regarding F9 airlines. Your air prices are out of sight. Charges for 1st bags, carry on bags, soft drinks, gasoline surcharges,....you are gouging your clients. On top of charging all of these charges; the final "blow" was the "gratuity" section on the charge pad! I kept hearing that F9 is the low cost airline. I would advise you to strip that line from your description. I have sold Apple Vacations since their inception (Thompson vacations) what happened to Apple using charter planes? Fuel surcharge? Please...gas is the lowest it has been in years. About the food at this hotel. I have always enjoyed the food at EVERY hotel buffet I have eaten at since your inception. This truly was overdone, dry meat, pale watermelon, hard French toast etc. The Japanese restaurant (at $15 addt'l per person), was our only decent meal during our stay. I will continue to sell Apple land. But, I am afraid I cannot include your air. Southwest is truly the "low-cost airline".

Room and level not what I booked
SEAN M.

Enjoyed my stay overall. Alacarte restauarants were better then buffets. Main disappointment was that I booked an ocean front sun deck and was given an ocean view room. Was told at the hotel that the ocean front rooms were for club premium members which is what I booked and paid for. I was given some apple perks as a vip, but only got premium level through Barcelo. The apple rep told me we were club premium. We did not get the perks of a club premium member nor did we get the room we booked and paid for.

Check in for the hotel is at 3 pm, so if you arrive before that you will not have a room ready. However, even after our 3 pm check in they only had one of our rooms ready and we didn't get the second room for almost 2 hours. The staff at this hotel aren't the kindest, mainly the guys we had two occasions were two different guys gave us attitude for something that was out of our control. They have a little gift shop in the hotel but you can't pay with cash, they charge it to your room and when you check out you pay for it, or you can go across the hall pay someone else get a receipt and walk back to the gift shop to pick up your items. This was one of the reasons one of the guys gave us attitude, no one explained this to us when we checked in so we were confused. Our balcony door broke the first night we were there. We had someone come up and "fix it" but he said he would come back tomorrow with a set of wheels, so the door could slide easier, that never got fixed. We called again they sent the person to the wrong room, we went downstairs gave them our room number and that didn't help. We left and our door was still not fixed.

Recommend for adult only travelers, golfers, beach dwellers (watch for high wind days due to blown sand). Great food, will brag up "la brisa" on the beach (lunch and dinner), mexico lindo (dinner) and Chez Gourmet (dinner) (need dinner reservations). Don't miss the sports bar or the restaurant at the Golf course (beef rib). The golf course was designed by that no good bastard Pete Dye so bring extra golf balls and play within your game.

Beach beautiful, food terrible

We stayed three nights...Jan 12-15. Our premium level room location in Building 6 was great, but the room itself is badly in need of renovation. The sink leaked, the toilet leaked and the tv did not work for the first two days. The beds however were very comfortable. The biggest disappointment however was the food. It was bland and tasteless. We tried three different restaurants for dinner, and very few things had any taste. The worst part was how bad the complimentary wine was - both the white and red! And it was the same wines at each restaurant. We were offered a wine list of better wines for purchase. But the California Chardonnay was $90/bottle. And that was the Kendall Jackson which is $12 a bottle at home!! I would not recommend this resort unless you don't care about food and you don't spend any time in your room. On the plus side, the beach, the pools and the grounds are all beautiful and well maintained. The staff was very friendly.

Love the resort - but really love the staff!

I have stayed here multiple times and let me just say a large majority of the staff is amazing. I usually do the Premium stay and Mabel and her staff in that office is second to none. Words can not explain how well they treat people and make you feel comfortable. I come in they and they are welcoming me by name. I recommend this resort to all my friends. Definitely this group of staff should be recognized for making guests want to come back! One weird thing I have noticed on a different topic than the office staff, is that how you can order something from room service and get it different each time. I would like to see a bit more consistency with the meals - but they are good so it is not a quality issue.

BEST VACATION EVER

We stayed from 1/11-1/15/18 at the Barcelo Bávaro Beach. We assumed it would be the better option compared to The Palace since it was adults only. We were wrong. We paid over $500/night and it went downhill starting with our arrival. We reserved a suite and was issued a small room with mold on the floors and in the bathroom. Also, the room wasn’t cleaned prior to our arrival. There was hair in the bathtub and dirt all of the floors. We talked to management immediately. They had someone come to our room to clean to our liking but by that time it was 11pm. We were exhausted and wanted to sleep. We requested that we switch resorts. We were told that both resorts were completely booked so we would have to come back daily to find out if there was a room available. So we did. It was a waste of time everyday. We checked online and it showed rooms available but the management team persisted to tell us they were booked. We only stayed for 4 nights; by the second to last night they accommodated us and moved us to the Palace. Those rooms are LESS expensive but 100% better than the prior. It was unfortunate they wouldn’t allow us to move sooner. Also, I would not recommend staying here unless you plan to go home hungry! We tried as many restaurants that we were able to squeeze in for our short stay but we were disappointed with every single one. I’m unsure if the quality is so terrible because of the size of the resort, but they couldn’t even get breakfast right. Everything was either bland or unappetizing. I would not recommend this resort.
