Amazing Resort!

I absolutely loved my stay at this resort. The resort is absolutely beautiful. There are many food options and the pools and beach are beautiful. The staff is extremely friendly. The rooms have a large safe in them, but honestly I left some of my valuables outside of the safe and did not get robbed. Highly recommend staying here.

AppleVacations did us wrong

A- the pull out sofa we were told we were getting for our 13 year old was NOT a pull out. It was not made to be a bed. Our son fell out of it 3 times. We had to to complain/pay to get upgraded because AppleVacations did not give out accurate info (IE. lied to us to get our money). B- Food was horrible at best. This should have been rated a 3-star. C- Service was nonexistent D- The staff had poor attitude E- Staff if not speak English F- The driver of the van to bring us from Hotel to Airport dropped us off at the wrong terminal. We had to walk 10 minutes in the blazing heat to get to the right terminal.

Hotel location was great. A few disappointments though. On Sunday for both breakfast and lunch it was like all the help was off. There were mant open tables to sit at but no one was cleaning them up from the people who had left. We had to put the dirty dishes on another table to use them. Another night we had reservations for 8:45 and we registered with the lady at the door at 8:30 and sat waiting outside the restaurant in the lobby area to be called. At about 8:40 she came out and said they were waiting for the people to get up and they would push the tables together and we would be seated. She pointed at the table where we were going to be outside, we had 9 people for dinner. 15 minutes later I saw that the people had left and they were putting the tables together. We went into the bar to get a drink and then I went to the lady and asked when we would be seated? She then said they were putting a table together inside for us. I went and looked and they put other people at the table we were suppose to have. It was now 9:20 and we had 4 kids with us 11 years of age and younger so we wanted to eat. The manager came and said we could go to the salad bar and then sit and some bar tables until they had the tables ready. I finally told him that we were going to leave and asked why they gave our table to someone else and he had no answer so we left. Another item that I thought was not good was the fact that we paid for an "all inclusive" package and they charged $20 a day per person to go to the water park. They did give us 1 free day pass that had to be used the day after you check in but this should be included.

Pool needs to have empty cups that are sitting at the swim up bar and on the other pool islands picked up more than once a day. Otherwise it was great. My friend did get food poisoning the last day we were there. Not good for traveling at all.

The service was terrible, they didn't want to help really, and it was extremely hard to get coffee in the morning. Coffee is grown here, and I was looking forward to it every morning. The staff did not understand English very well. The food was not great, and it made people sick at points. It was a very European hotel, and not many spoke English, staff, or other hotel guests.

I felt like staff communication was poor because most could not speak English, I think this caused some difficulty and confusion for me trying to navigate in such a large property. Some of the staff were not very helpful. Also I did not like the way the reservations had to be made, but I guess that is to be expected on such a large resort. I was very surprised at how clean and well manicured the resort was, it was very nice.

Beach & Food
SEMEN A.
Jul 21 2016
I was pretty disappointed with the beach & the food at the hotel. The beach itself was very clean, beach chairs were very comfortable but there were no umbrellas anywhere on the beach and no one to ask. Sitting in the direct sun in July w/out shade was pretty awful. The other disappointing part of my stay was the food. There was plenty of it but the taste was pretty bad. There were some days where I would get toast because how horrible the food was and the service at main dining room was not very good. Walking into the dining room there were always tables with dirty dishes that wasn't being cleared at all or if dishes were cleared the tables were not cleaned up but they would expect guest to sit at them.

Barceló resort is one of the premier resorts on the island, with a first class accommodations and a caring staff. I would suggest going during off peak times of the year, during peak times is the only time I hear bad things about this place. Great job all around.

Our stay at Barceló Bávaro Palace was amazing! We had a wonderful time. The grounds are large & spacious, with so much to do! Very kid-friendly, altho they also have a few adults-only areas. Wonderful staff, food, entertainment.

Very nice vacation for all the family!

A little improvement in the quality/diversity of food for breakfast and lunch - same for the coffee and the house wine - would have made our stay a perfect vacation. Very nice resort and great courtesy from the staff. The room was perfect and all the family loved most of the evening shows.

Beautiful place

Myself and my wife visited the resort last week for 6 days. The things we loved about it is the beautiful beach and clear water, good quality and variety of food and the jacuzzi in the room. Cons: WiFi is not included and you have to pay $10 USD per day. Don’t bother going to the restaurants as the buffet has way better food with more options. The only one we liked was the Coral Seafood restaurant. At the Japanese restaurant a couple of pages were missing from our menus and made it even harder trying to communicate with the staff who speaks no English. The fridge in our room didn’t work, I called reception to send someone to fix it. A technician arrived an hour later said he fixed but he didn’t. I used the ice bucket instead!!

The resort is huge, but designed so that everything is within a short walking distance. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The beach is expansive, clean, full of lounge chairs and the water is calm. The food is quite a variety and while not everyone will like everything there is so much to choose from you are certain to find a favourite. There is a huge theater with a dedicate entertain company that puts on nightly Las Vegas type shows. The cross section of guest is notable as well, and everyone is friendly to each other despite language barriers. The pools are also awesome, clean, cool water; with some having jacuzzi like sections and others having children sections. There is also a swim up bar or bars near by the pools. I could go on, but this resort is so worth a trip, you will be awestruck. There is a bit of something for everyone. This resort accomodated families and is not adults only, however the second resort in this complex is adults only and there are numerous sections where each share the others amenities. My family and I were thoroughly impressed and are working on our extended families to plan an even larger group for our next visit there; hopefully this year, but if not definitely 2019.
