"Relaxing at its best."
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.

"Patio opens to the beach"
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great Resort with Outstanding Staff"
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!!!

"Too many rules"
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.

"A relaxing beautiful experience."
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice hotel but I'd try another one next time"
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"I would go to someplace else next time !"
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 !!

"An average experience"
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

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!

"Fantastic place to stay!"
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 !!

"All inclusive is limiting"
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great overall experience."
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.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent hotel, very close to the beach and pool."
Definitely would recommend this resort to friends.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel, beautiful beach and pool"
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.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Best vacation ever"
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.

"Nice hotel, with not so friendly staff"
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 optionGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice hotel, Staff could be slightly better."
The best about this place is that it is "Adults Only" I am a parent, but every once in a while you need to get away from the kids. This place did the trick.

"Fantastic Hotel on an Excellent Beach"
Everything about the hotel was great. The staff overall was very friendly and attentive. The cleaning staff could have been a little more timely and they missed re-filling the mini-bar once, but it wasn't a major problem.

"Loved it! Definitely coming back!"
The resort was awesome. Beautiful clear water, white sand. The hotel has thought of everything for you, really. Beach volleyball, beach soccer, water aerobics, outdoor pool and ping pong tables, live shows every night, kayaking, snorkeling, karaoke on the beach, night club, spa, sports bar and movie theater. The staff are super friendly. At the reception, […] guest service, spa, sports center and stores - the staff speaks good English. A little Spanish is necessary at the a la carte restaurants if you have any special requests for your food. The resort is huge and has a cute train that can take you between the Palace Delux and the Adults Only sections. Very convenient when heading to the disco in heels. The staff cleans the beach multiple times a day. Therefore, abundance if seaweed is not an issue. There are 7 restaurants to chose from for dinner. Only one downside to the whole resort: cannot say that the food was great (which we were actually very happy about). Coming from New York, we are pretty spoiled with our food. So we might have been overly critical. I found the different rice dishes at La Brisa delicious. Save room for desserts at Chez Gourmet. The rum/orange crepe was stellar! Overall, a fantastic experience. Definitely staying here if we were to return to DR. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Not all it's cracked up to be. Not returning"
I'm going to give you the hard and truthful facts from our experience. We went on our honey moon July 9-14. So I'll get right to it: Pros: food looks great. They present the food and decor nicely. Grounds were pretty well kept, beach water was great- a little seaweed but they clean it off the beach each day around noon, the pool was really nice and […] spacious, the ac in our room worked great as well, we did have an issue with the TV the first night but they sent someone right away to fix it. Cons: food was not what you thought it was going to be by looking at it, it either tasted gross or had no flavor, the buffets consistently had the same items ( I can understand that for breakfast, but not lunch & we got bored eating buffet for both breakfast and lunch because that's all there was), people don't really speak English well so brush up on your Spanish (luckily I speak a little Spanish which helped but I couldn't always understand them and they would get annoyed and frustrated at that), the adult resort was a total bore (nothing to do at night, you have to go to the other resort for restaurants and entertainment but there are TONS of kids running around. I didn't mind but some nights I wanted to enjoy adults without cranky and overly tired kids), the airport is total chaos. We arrived almost an hour late for our 4 hour window before our flight. We got to the airport 3 hours ahead of time and still had to run to our gate to catch our flight out of PUJ - Punta Cana airport. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Cancun Should Be Wary!"
We have been to many all inclusive resorts. Like most of you, we read the reviews and take them into consideration before booking. We had read that the food is bad, the service is terrible, etc., etc., etc., Let me tell you. The adult side is AWESOME! The beach is one of the best beaches that we have ever been too. A little seaweed on the shore (the […] rake it up daily), not a big deal. The grounds are immaculate. The pool is gigantic and has tons of loungers. We didnt make it out to the pool unitl 9 ish and even then the chairs were plentiful and easy to get. Bar service (Jamey) and the pool is perfect. The rooms are good, tile floor, big bathroom. We had a ground floor unit, building #5 and had a courtyard view which was nice. You can walk on the beach 250 yards to the right and go to the sister property and eat there, swim, drink etc. Walk 300 yards to the left on the beach and there are flea market type vendors you can go shopping at. Service in the restaurants was very good. Room cleaning was good. If you need something, just ask, they are very friendly and will help. The shows are too real good, but hey, its entertainment and helps pass the time. It is a quite, relaxing, resort. If you are looking for a party life place, go over to the sister property where there is more night life. I would return there to that resort without hesistation. Cancun should take note that the Punta Cana area will soon take some of their business. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great outing in the Dominican Republic"
Great experience in a place I have never been before. Really enjoyed the all inclusuve concept. Food was great, a lot of variety. The room was to my liking as well. Very clean every day after maid service. The shows were very interesting. Michael Jackson was the best. Beaches were clean and very well maintained. Overall, I would stay here again and […] would recommend it to others. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Beautiful property with close to the beach."
We went with a group of 6 couples for a celebration weekend. The rooms were neat and clean, however, some of the rooms do need to be updated. The property is fabulous with easy access to the pools and the beach and a very open air feel for the Caribbean. We enjoyed both the buffets, but the restaurants were top notch - even though we very late reservations. […] It was an easy walk or trolley ride to the adjoining hotel Barcelo Bavaro Palace - which had more pools, golf, casino and other activities (something for everyone in our group). It was a very relaxing and enjoyable trip. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
