TERRIBLE Customer Service (April 2017)
PDiddy365, Boston, Massachusetts
Mon Apr 24 16:39:35 EDT 2017
My wife and I recently booked a trip through Booking.com for 2 adults and 2 children at the Barcelo Bavaro Palace in Punta Cana in mid-April. Our high expectations for this trip were quickly crushed when we were denied a room because their system had a reservation for two adults only, when we clearly booked a room for four. After being jerked around between the incompetent front desk staff who were incapable of helping us resolve this with Booking.com, and the even more incompetent and inconsiderate manager, Edward Nunez, we found ourselves stuck with the decision to either double the cost of our hotel trip (for two kids under 7 mind you) or move to a new hotel. Not once during this experience were we offered a reasonable solution, any food or water for our kids, or anything one might consider helpful in such a circumstance at a so-called luxury hotel. After wasting almost three hours, we were so frustrated with the property that we decided to cancel and booked a wonderful stay at the Ocean Blue and Sand Resort where there was amazing staff. I would never recommend this hotel to anyone after such a terrible experience, especially for my young kids. Buyer beware.

Beautiful Resort! Much to offer. Something for everyone! It's a big place that isn't so spread out that you need a tram every time you go anywhere. Courteous service and good food. There is something to offer everyone at this resort.

Our stay overall, very good. You can't expect for the this place to be perfect because of the people coming & going 24 hours a day there. Even the little things to complain about can't override the overall score. The resort is a great getaway indeed, and will go again, but not on spring break (to many teenagers), maybe this winter indeed!!!!

Best beach ever, tricky with reservations

My husband and I stayed here for nine days in the end of March 2017 with our kids, ages 13,11,3 with the Premier Package. The beach was second to none. We didn't even go to the pool until the second to last day! The pools were all great as well. Our trip would not have gone smooth, however, if I had not read the other reviews on Trip Advisor. I called 2 weeks ahead for all our dinner reservations. If not, we would not have been able to eat at all of the restaurants. They need to work on that. One unexpected perk was the Sports Bar. My husband and son loved the atmosphere, especially the 24hr beer for hubby. Also, though, the 24hr food way nice. Other resorts don't have that. We did do a few excursions and they were nice, too. We'd go back!
