Barcela Bavario Palace a very beautiful, comfortable resort
KENNETH S.
Apr 18 2018
The people that worked their we're all very friendly to us, we always said good morning and always they had a big smile back and talked back with us. The front desk not so much. Felt like they had something better to do and understaffed at desk. 4 out of 6 of us can home with montizumas revenge, all the last day and days to follow. Lots of food choices but not the best quality. We're from Chicago so we are very spoiled with our food. Did not like at all that we had to make reservation for dinner. Took an hour to wait in line then none of the restraiunts we're open. We had to go to dinner at 5:45 and offer the host $20 for a time. They never took the $20 and got us in right away. They're were 7 of us. Thank you to the hostesses for getting us in. Overall this resort is beautiful!

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
LINDA M.
Jul 13 2017
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.

Ocean front room is worth the extra money !!

The cure is breathtaking. Pools amazing. Got the premium level service! So worth it for the free WiFi in room and making reservations in advance for restaurants vis email!! French restaurant is the best and only free for premium guests. Private buffet for breakfast and lunch which had all you can lobster!! Great trip!

Great resort. Terrible food

My girlfriend and I stayed for 3 nights and the Barcelo Bavaro Palace and were immediately impressed with how clean, modern and beautiful it was. Our perspective quickly changed after waiting 30 min at “premium check in” only to be told we had to wait on line for another 15 minutes at standard check-in. The customer service associate helping us seemed to struggle with their system and had to walk across the hall 2-3 times to get whatever she needed for our reservation. After finally getting a grasp on things and a good 20-30 additional minutes - we were checked in. A porter quickly came to help us and walked us to our room which was spacious, immaculate and comfortable. Overall, if you’re looking for a cheap vacation in a safe resort that’s all inclusive - this is the spot to go to. Just don’t have high hopes on the food (most of which is inedible) options. You won’t starve if you can deal with chicken fingers, rice and cheeseburgers.

Awsome

Everthing was great the only thing it was the a/c in the room not working. It was very hot at night. The staff are very nice and sweet like Mariela in Carey lobby bar and Nikolay in the Guest Service. I will definitely go back

Fabulous family vacation

The whole trip from start to finish was great! The front desk staff were very friendly and accomodating. We stayed in the room in section 1100-1430 which is farther from the lobby but easy access to the beach and far less busy. Coral restaurant was really good and so were the buffet. I'm picky and don't eat breakfast but I was still able to find lots to eat!. Kids and adults will love this resort. Only 20 minutes from the airport

OK hotel, bad food, bad beach and sea

The hotel is OK. Maybe for this part of the world the hotel seems superb, but for slightly more travelled people it seems nothing special: any average Turkish all-inclusive hotel will be way better! The food is bad. I never ate fried chicken so much in my life. Anything else was inedible. Salad bar was a joke. Just taste their wooden tomatos... Beach: no great swimming experience. Anyway you can swim it's just 4ft... And a lot of motor boats and yachts going back and forth 50 yards from you playing lousy music.. All the time.. For this beach aloane I would never come back.. Huge disappointment.. Go elsewhere if you want to get something nice in return for you money, imho...
