All Inclusive    

A spectacular resort, set on a dazzling beach, the all-inclusive Barceló Punta Cana boasts 798 rooms with red Spanish-styled rooftops. The lobby, in warm tangerine hues, invites you to linger, with comfy seating under a chandelier, which amusingly also happens to house a birds nest! Sprawled parallel with the beach, this spacious hotel curves around gardens and features two large pools that are perfect for a refreshing dip.

Boredom is not an option at this adventurer's paradise! Fly through the air on a trapeze at the circus school, or test your strength and endurance on the rock-climbing wall. Then, gaze down at the spectacular ocean-view from the top. Children's programs are also available and include a playground, game room, pool, and more.

Entice your palate at one of seven specialty restaurants and after supper, don't forget to try your luck at the casino or take in one of the dynamic live shows in the forum-style theater. Before topping the evening off at the nightclub, stop by one of the late night bars for a nightcap. Finally, head off to your luxurious room to rest up for the next day's adventure.

Once youve had a good night's rest, why not start your day off in the gorgeous, fully-equipped spa? Enjoy relaxing in the hot tub, pampering yourself in the beauty salon, or melting away stress in one of many massage rooms.

Wish It Was Better...
Letsgodr,
Thu Jun 23 11:39:38 EDT 2016
Grounds...beautiful. Beach....amazing. Did I have fun? Yes. BUT I wish it was a better trip overall. We were there for my brother's wedding with about 40 other people. Almost all of us have been to DR before, stayed at Barcelos before and have been in Punta Cana several times. This resort unfortunately had the WORST service I have EVER seen. Anywhere. EVER! The employees (besides a few) seem to not care about the guests at all. I have NEVER experienced this in Punta Cana before. We had to beg for water at every single meal and had coffee cups LITERALLY thrown at us at breakfast one morning after asking kindly several times. Some of the oceanview rooms (of other guests attending the wedding) were clean, updated and overall great. BUT the rest of the rooms in building 4 were just plain outdated and gross! I have stayed in resorts of this same level before and never had a bathroom that looked as appalling as ours did. One of my cousins had to hold the shower head in as they showered every day. Our AC wasn't working well and it was never fixed even after calling every day about it. And many other guests were traveled with had issues with their rooms. I just don't understand what is wrong with this resort and its management staff. I have stayed at Barcelos in Mexico and had loved my experience. I will surely return to Punta Cana but never to this resort. We loved all of our MANY trips to Occidental resorts in the past and I surely hope Barcelo doesn't ruin them (now that they have bought that company). I was so disappointed. More>

Great white sandy beach, you'd never go hungry, plenty parking, good size rooms

I always scout a place before bringing my family. So I scouted Barcelo. The pools, beach area and overall facilities are really good, if your room is not ready you can go and have a snack ( burgers and hot dogs) and drinks from the never close bar and take a tour of the place while you wait. The food at the buffet might taste different to you since they cannot cater to every ethnicity in the planet, but is really good. There's a gym if you want to burn those extra calories. There's a children pool for the little ones. There are several activities during the day at the pool so you won't be bored. There is a late dinner by the beach for $35 USD which is lobster very romantic. To get here you get your airport transfer or get a rental at the airport, it's about 25 minutes from PUJ. Do use your gps and follow it religiously. Don't get lost. Enjoy your time in beautiful Punta Cana Dominican Republic. Lastly allow enough time to get to the airport most airlines don't have jetways and passengers walk or are bussed to the aircraft. There are VIP lounges at the airport once you clear security.

Could have been better

Let me start by saying that I am not a picky person by no means. I read the reviews on this resort before going and I must say that I was very optimistic and went with the mind set that we were going to have the time of our life. This was the first family vacation that we have been on since 2006, so I wanted this to be wonderful. We went through a travel agent so I was sure it was going to be. When we arrived, I thought it was fantastic based on appearance. Then we went to check in...they said our rooms would not be ready for one hour (we had 2 rooms). The lines for check in re ridiculous! So unorganized, and the language barrier was terrible! We only speak English, so they could not understand us and we could not understand them! So, after about 35 minutes, we got our rooms. They were next to one another. Nice rooms, not over the top, but very nice. Over looking the pool. I have to say the grounds and the beach are absolutely beautiful!!! They do a wonderful job keeping them so pretty. The food is not so much! The buffet is the exact same thing every day! The Japanese restaurant is by far the best! The service at this resort it terrible. We had to ask for towels every day, to have our room cleaned. Also, to get a drink at the bar, you have to stand in line and I guess, look a certain way. They overlook you all the time. My boys and husband didn't have a problem getting drinks at the swim up bar though. As for shopping, they will set you up with 2 different shopping trips to 1 store. The locals are very pushy and will not barter with you very much at all. You have to ask for excursion trips yourself because they don't offer to help set you up with much. We went snorkeling and swimming with sharks and sting rays, catamaran boat ride in the Caribbean, swimming with Dolphins, all which were very fun. Overall, the stay was nice except for the service, some food, and the language barrier. Drinks were good. I would not recommend this resort just for the reasons I stated, but, these are what we encountered. Someone else may go, and have a wonderful time. I read reviews hoping for honest, answers that would help us determine where we wanted to spend our vacation, and that is our opinion of this resort, good and bad. More>

Family 3rd year returning to Barcelo Premium, Punta Cana
supermom60, Miami, Florida
Wed Jun 22 18:53:16 EDT 2016
Last year I wrote my 1st review on Barcelo Premium resort and back again to talk about some changes that were done from last years trip!!! Pros: They have the best employee in that resort Jairin Felix he goes beyond his duties to make sure his guest feel right at home. He honestly is one of the main reasons we go back to Barcelo Premium. Finally air conditioning has being upgraded in every room and I can honestly say that it was cold and felt great! Ground floors were redone and looked really nice! All deck chairs and umbrellas were also replaced and they added more lounge chairs to the beach. A+ Resort looked freshly painted or retouched. Bar glasses were new and also new espresso machine Biggest improvement overall was the buffet was completely redone, new floors, buffet food trays all brand new, new area for omelets and pastas and the food was really good too. Cons: The pool bar needs to be updated Bathrooms in the rooms needs to be updated specially the plumbing. Seafood restaurant needs to add fans it's extremely hot since it's open air and the wait time was ridiculous... This is the 2nd time in this place and same thing happens Pools are cleaned while guest are in the pool and it's not sanitary. My husband has encountered ear infections due to this. They need to make a huge improvement on their cocktails they are watered down and the liquor they use is not good at all. Wine tastes like vinegar. How about giving guest an option to pay extra for premium if you choose too. I would pay extra money for premium liquor. OVERALL: We had a great time with the family and the people in DR are very welcoming and make you feel like family!!! I will likely be back next year again since it has become a family tradition!! Hopefully we will see more improvements next year!!! More>
