It ws the first time we tried such a all inclusive deal. It was amazing generally speaking. We especially liked the facilities and beach over there, except for several times' unhappy experience made by the waiters at the restaurants which required reservations. And no one told us need to wear collar shirts and we were rejected to play the free golf unless we bought some expensive golf clothes at their golf shop.

Overall, our experience was very good.... The adult only concept works very well. Value of the package is excellent with all restaurants included in the package.... The French restaurant is not to be missed. Even call brand whiskies are no additional charge nor was the lobster dinner at Coral, the seafood restaurant. The negatives are as follows..... You will be ignored at the reception desk, at the gift shop, at guest services and at every bar if there is a Spanish speaking patron also waiting. Of course, a modest $5 tip will insure prompt service every time. Stay in an ocean view room and bring an ample supply of singles and fives (you will need them) Room, gardens, grounds, pools and beach are meticulously kept!

Went back to Barcelo Bavaro Beach-Adults Only since we had such a great experience last year. Food and drinks were great, staff friendly. The landscape and grounds are kept in fantastic shape. Angel at Bar Bohio was a great bartender and always happy. Vicente at Santa Fe steak house and Coral was a great waiter. Like others suggest, make your reservations for a la carte dinners the day you arrive, unless you don't mind eating dinner at 10:30pm. The divemaster, Kelvin was fantastic to go diving with. He took us last year as well. The location of this place is tough to beat, right on one of the most beautiful beaches. What you get for the money is hard to beat as well. My only complaint this time was that we could not get a top floor room with king bed as we had requested 6 months ago when we made the reservation. They could only offer a king on 2nd floor or two doubles on top floor. We were bummed and surprised we couldn't get the requested room even with reservations made so far in advance.

The hotel and the grounds are beautiful. They are constantly keeping the areas clean. The rooms are clean and spacious. Front desk is helpful and courteous. As for the buffet staff , they could be better trained. They take you drink order and then do not return for 30 minutes. The food at the buffet is the same everyday. There is never anything different to eat. Overall its a nice hotel , just disappointing food.

My wife and I celebrated our third wedding anniversary (and belated honeymoon) at Barceló Bavaro Beach (9/29 to 10/3/14). We both fell in love with the beach right away - jade color and calm as a swimming pool. The hotel staff was excellent. We did not have even one negative experience. In fact, everyone at the resort was extremely friendly and helpful. There were a variety of restaurants and activities at the resort as well as excursions outside the resort. We went horseback riding and visited Macao Beach (very beautiful) and spent time snorkeling with nurse sharks and stingrays. The staff on these excursions were excellent.

Just stayed for 7 nights 9/27 thru 10/4 with my girlfriend. Hotel is wonderful, beautiful grounds, beaches and pool. We only went to family side for some dinners at the restaurants and spent a few hours at the sports bar. Room was perfect. Ice cold air conditioning, hot water in the shower, big comfy king bed and quiet with a view of the ocean from the balcony. Room was cleaned and restocked consistently each day. Buffet food was decent. We mainly did breakfast. Omelet station and french toast most days. Restaurants were ok. We ate at LeGourmet, Santa Fe, El Lindo and Kyoto. I would recommend El Lindo and Kyoto. Kyoto costs 15 bucks per person but is well worth it. Very good shrimp and steak. Drinks were good everywhere. We mainly did vodka tonics, margaritas, baileys on the rocks and some beer. All were good with sufficient amounts of alcohol. Sports bar also had good food and excellent service. Restaurant reservations are easily made with guest services. If you are looking to be waited on all day at the pool and beach, I would not suggest this resort. We have no problem grabbing our own drinks and rarely had to wait more than a few minutes, so we were very happy with service. Overall we were very pleased with everything and had a wonderful time. I would highly recommend this resort for a relaxing, laid back vacation.

Resort is very nice. No complaints about comfort and cleanliness. The only thing we had a little trouble was the food. Buffet was excellent to look at but the hot food was never hot, even in the restaurant the food is lukewarm. Display excellent. The coffee is mud you have to ask for extra water to make it drinkable, but again everybody has a different coffee style. Most Restaurants excellent, except the Seafood restaurant, I myself and other people got sick. LOBSTER was mushy. I do not recommend this Restaurant. Otherwise very nice Resort. Maybe they could work on the shuttle service to make it easier to get away from the airport it would be a nice service. To receive more info on your stay you have to contact a travel agent, could be a hassle takes away from your vacation time. Just enjoy it is in the end very enjoyable.

Just got back from a 7 night stay at the Barcelo Bavaro Beach Hotel. The property really is beautiful and the beach is huge and beautiful with lots of options for direct sun, mixed sun and shade or shade. Our room had a nice view somewhat obstructed by trees but, that didn't bother us. We were supposed to have a garden view room. We were on the third (top) floor. I did email a request a couple of weeks ahead of time for top floor. Their response was that they'd put the request in my reservation but it was based on availability. We got there a bit earlier than 3 and our room was not ready. They invited us to go to the buffet and come back at 3. No problem. Check in went smoothly but did take a bit. I would agree with various reviews that they seem understaffed. I thought 2 people responsible for checking people in and answering calls was too much. I would also say this was true at the bar areas, most notably the adults pool bar- Bohio. Two people, huge line. I think people get sick of waiting so they order 4-6 drinks at a time and that creates more waiting. We thought the staff were bare minimum nice. Rarely any eye contact. Many of them kind of look beyond you, lacked smiles and do not make any attempt to connect with you. "Just doing a job" attitude. Our favorite people were the cable/TV technicians. Super nice, very friendly. The food was touch n go. You never know what ingredients are in the mixed salads, I saw moldy bread, waffles were super hard.

Great experience overall. A little mix up with our room at first; they put us in 2 double-beds v.s. the king we booked. It was corrected the next day with a bit of persistence but, with a much better location. Having access to both properties (Adults Only & the Deluxe) was a plus & we took advantage of both. The service staff was wonderful!

The hotel itself is really nice but some of staff can be a little slow & rude. They are really quick to tell you NO and THEY WON'T DO IT. Also I would suggest making reservations the day you get there for all the places you want to eat. Not much nightlight on the grounds besides 1 club for adults which the music can be hit or miss. I would stay on the deluxe side next time.

It is a good place to stay, the beach is amazing. However, the staff is not all nice, the room cleaniness was not good and there was a day they did not do it. Inside the hotel there are some categories according to the room you select but there is not any information about that in the webpage. I would go back again but it is not my first option!

This place was awesome. The moment we got into the resort area, employees immediately helped us with our luggage. The check in was simple and easy. The employee who took out luggage showed us to our room and made sure to to show all the room features to us. This place was really all-inclusive. The showers even had bath gel, shampoo, and conditioner. They also provided bagged items you could use for free with soap, a shoe polish sponge, tooth brush and tooth paste, a large bottle of water (Ill get to the water shortly), and the room itself was beautiful with a good sized bed, a ceiling fan, plenty-o-air-conditioning, and a nice little porch with a table for two overlooking the property and the beach. We only did a few things, but they did give us the honeymoon upgrade for free (awesome!) and we even shelled out the additional for a couple relaxing massage (double awesome!). Beyond that we spent most of the nights watching their live performances at the Grand Barcelo Teatro (beautiful indoor amphitheater). The staff themselves were awesome! Very friendly and always willing to help out with just about anything. The pool was another bit of fun for us as well. I think we honestly spent more time at the pool than even the beach. But the entire location was clean (amazingly clean actually), what few extra's we splurged for were awesome, and overall the experience I would rate a 4-4.5 out of 5.

Overall we had a great honeymoon! The service is good, but the employees do not smile or make small talk. The resort itself is gorgeous, and the all inclusive is excellent. We went golfing and ate at all but two restaurants. The food is repetitive, but still tastes good! So many drink options... Just make sure to bring plenty of $1s for tipping during your stay. We recommend going golfing, but bring your own balls and tees. We brought our own tees and balls and it was still $280 for the two of us (but the course is absolutely gorgeous). We used the kayaks and snorkeled right off of the beach. Definitely do this if you come here! The guests are much more international than we thought. As a newlywed couple we had hoped to meet other Americans to hang out with during our stay, but there were mostly all Europeans at the resort. Overall, you will have a blast here! Just don't expect many English speakers or a high level of service.

Can't think of a better all incl hotel. Fast check in, very informative staff to tell you how to get in order with restaurant bookings and other activities. Maybe difficult to book á la carte restaurants for the whole stay directly at arrival but was told it was the best to do. The Buffets where ok , á la carte wow. Breakfast was served in the buffets restaurants and had everything for everyone with extremely nice and attentive staff,,, their English will improve over time.

This vacation was 7 nights, our 27th anniversary. I was disappointed. Upgraded our room when we got there. Room was hot and humid, as well as they didn't have fans. Not the cleanest. The water smelled like feces. It was a little more "upscale" than I expected. I like a more laid back atmosphere. U could not be in the pool after 8p. Sometimes u want to just hang in the pool, have a few drinks with friends. My husband was hoping there was a swim up bar, he was disappointed. The seaweed was horrible. It washed ashore constantly, which it understand they have no control over that. The beach was roped off so you could only swim so far off. I didn't like the constant party boats going by with their music so loud you could understand it. The buffet food was horrible, but the restaurants were great. Never got a bad cut of meat. We stayed in the adult side and there wasn't anything to do after hours. Other than a show that ended at ten. You had to go to the main side, a train trip away, if u wanted to party. It's a very large resort. The staff was awesome, except when you needed something like a fan. She kept pointing at the ceiling fan. I needed some personal items and something you would buy in the states for $3-4 was $9 in the gift shop (the only store). By the time you take a taxi to a store you would've paid the same. Overall, I enjoyed having a relaxing vacation, but the room could have been nicer. Expedia posted recent redos on the rooms. My guess it was the paint.

Wife and I spent a week (8/13-20/2014) at the Barcelo Bavara Beach-Adult Only Resort and had a wonderful time. The Resort is very nice with lots to do and see. What really made our stay outstanding was the Staff! A special "thank you" to Anny for going above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed the amenities of the resort. A major highlight of our trip was returning to our room after a day of shopping/exploring downtown Punta Cana to find our room decorated with balloons, flowers, a cake and a bottle of champagne for my wife's birthday! All in all, it was a great vacation. Once again, a great big THANK YOU to Anny, and also to Dominga and Mabel of the Barcelo Bavaro Beach Staff, they are truly the best!!!

Overall it was OK. Some food was good, some was OK. But they have to many rules. "NO, we can't sit 9 of you because we cannot put three tables together" (even when the restaurant is empty) "so we will split your group in two tables". we had to argue to get seated together on an empty restaurant. You can't take an apple or anything else out of the restaurants even when is all inclusive. Room service has to be payed extra and you can't take the food with you from the restaurant. Internet has a surcharge even in public areas. They don't serve hard liquor or beer on the restaurants, only very cheap wine. The hotel next to it, which is included also has a much better ambiance than this one, and the rooms seem a lot nicer. On the plus side, most of the premium drinks are included, and the food was OK.

An amazing, beautiful resort, I will be returning as soon as possible. The staff was wonderful, the resort was quiet (no children), very clean, very accommodating. I enjoyed the variety of restaurants and the ease of making reservations. The beach was very accessible, clean and comfortable, no worry of being solicited on the beach while relaxing. The size of the resort was not an issue with the trolley running so frequently. I enjoyed the variety shows, the casino, the all you can every thing.

Nice hotel. Magic show and Michael Jackson are a must. I'm 29 years old and looked around at other people my age in awe of a magic performance. Amazing! He was a HUGE highlight!!! Food was repetitive. Making reservations for restaurants was tough even for a week ahead. Other all inclusives there are easier. Hibachi, la Bisa and The Mexican restaurant were the best!!! I wish we went there each night! Some days the room wasn't cleaned until 6pm which was frustrating so we would be getting ready for dinner and still not have clean towels. Adults only was much more relaxing than the busier pools and beaches adjacent to our part of hotel.

I have been in all inclusive hotels and this one felt like the most of the employes are tierd and not so friendly . We didn't got so much info what there is to do in hotel at night and it's feel like the staff on the beach and staff in breakfast were happy to be there and make our stay enjoyable . Wouldn't go back there though . The front desk girl was not nice and put us in end of hotel even though the hotel was pretty empty , we got transfer after the keys wasn't working as well to better location then the shower was broken and molded . The bathroom was also broken but we were tierd already and didn't feel like stay on line and hold for so long like before . The best experience we got was in the Italian restaurant !!

This resort was just that….pretty average. From the room, to the staff, to the amenities and facilities overall. Our stay was just "ok" at best and we went into it, expecting a lot more variety as far as activities and food choices are concerned, but go the complete opposite. In fact, most of the different options were located on the family side of the resort which was rather disappointing. If you and your significant other are just looking to just have a relaxing time and don't need much variety, then this is the place for you. However, if you're looking to have options as far as activities and places to eat are concerned, then you may want to look elsewhere. The place is definitely not great, but it's not completely terrible either. Just what it is….average, at best.

Visited with my wife for our 10th anniversary. Everything was great. My only negative comment has to do with a request that never happened. I called the night before stating that I was arriving and I wuld like to have an amenity in my room for our arrival in celebration of our 10th anniversary with I Love you card and that I would pay for it, I asked for something simple some fruits and cheeses.. The morning of checkin I called again to confirm and the front dks agent stated the comment was there. Upon arrival no amenity upon departure no amenity. Half way through the stay I confronted the agent who just said, I put it in the system, look and showed me. Never did anything to fix. it. No big deal. Everything was awesome!

We stayed at the Barcelo Bavaro Beach Resort in the all adult section and it was absolutely beautiful. The resort has so much to do and the nightly entertainment is great. The beach is clean and clear and always plenty of chairs and umbrellas. The rooms all face the ocean, but if you upgrade to the Club Premium option, you will get an ocean front room along with a lot of other great benefits. There are 9 restaurants and 2 Buffet Restaurants, so you have plenty of choices to choose from. The grounds are kept immaculate and the staff is very friendly, although they do not speak much English, but that is how most of the resorts in Punta Cana are. Love this resort and will go back !!

First and last time I will ever pay for an all inclusive trip, the grounds and facility were top notch! The food is so so and if you only eat at the buffets the food was the same day after day. The shows were very good the staff was non engaged, as if they were just there and not very happy with their job. Shame on me for thinking adults only meant something else. All couples and not very much to do for a solo traveler. Beach and pool words do no justices, just beautiful.

Pros- friendly staff, particularly Maira from the restaurant, great proximity to a fairly quiet beach with an abundance of chairs, pool was clean and not too overcrowded. Cons- food was what one would expect for all inclusive. The presentation was excellent, yet the selection and taste could be improved. Overall, I would recommend this hotel.

I had an awesome stay, 5 nights. The room had a view of the pool and was steps from the beach. Staff all very friendly, most of the staff spoke English pretty well but if you know Spanish it'll be even easier. Drinks were great, food was excellent at the restaurants-- Buffett was sort of hit or miss. Overall, I loved it and will come back.

Amazing!!!! The staff treated us extremely well especially the entertainment staff on the beach. Food was good, atmosphere was delightful. Weather was great. Excursions were worth the fees. Overall, a pleasant, relaxing, vacation allowing us to disconnect from our daily hectic lives.

This was our first visit to Punta Cana. We stayed for 5 nights and enjoyed every minute. We stayed at the adults only resort which also included use of the facilities of both hotels. Not one single negative comment can be expressed. The whole experience was awesome. The staff was really helpful and pleasant the whole time. I did not hear one Staff member complain or say no to any of the customer requests. The food was delicious and a huge selection on the buffets. The restaurants were fantastic and making reservations was a breeze. Within an hour of our arrival, we had dinner reservations for each night. The evening shows were great and loved the interaction of staff with the vacationers. Would go back tomorrow. Anyone with children, I recommend this resort highly. Already planning on taking my grandchildren. Loved meeting people from all over the world. Awesome experience.

There was something to do for everyone. The hotel was huge and very clean. There was a train available to take us around. The staff was very friendly. The only compliant I had was the Wi-Fi service. I paid for it, but it only worked in the lobby. I wanted it to work in my hotel room, and you could only use one device at a time.

Annoying staff that simply don't care that you are visiting their grounds. The adult pool was great. The Palace Deluxe side was beautiful. Adult only side needs reno. Food ok.. All in all, if you are looking for an all inclusive- this is a nice option
