"Decent stay for price"
For a little over $100/night, my experience was decent. The actual hotel grounds are nice and the pool and beach area are quite lovely. The food quality is slightly above mediocre, but still decent. The staff, particularly Wasmin (sp?) at the front desk, needs to learn how to smile and be polite to guests. Make sure you make your dinner reservations […] as soon as you arrive, you will not be able to walk into any restaurants for last minute reservations. Rooms are OKAY, but bathrooms could definitely need more work. All in all, decent experience for the price if you are on a budget! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Satisfying Vacation"
My wife and I recently spent a week at the Barcelo Bavaro Beach Adults Only Resort in Punta Cana, in celebration of our 30th anniversary. We were there from Friday March 28th, 2014, until Friday April 4th. I can honestly say that we were quite satisfied with mostly everything and that we'll probably return for another week next year. The vacation was […] a total dream come true, leaving nothing to the imagination. We chose to stay on the adult side of the Barcelo complex, mainly because we desired an adult atmosphere away from children and the family thing. We both love kids, but ours are grown, and we've been there and done that and now desire the quiescence of maturity. And although the palace side is newer and seemingly more lavish, the adult side was quainter and much more tropical in air. It was the right choice, and we will do it again. Our room was in the 6000 building. The room was on the bottom floor and the door faced the inner garden of the rectangle. The sliding glass doors on the opposite side looked out at the ocean, the beach wall, and the beach bar/buffet. We were very happy with the location. The resort workers were very friendly, hard working, and determined to please. Gratuities were included in our all-inclusive vacation package, but we desired nevertheless to leave tips whenever the service, on a personal basis, was deserving of it. The complex is huge! But the tram gets you everywhere quickly if you don't want to walk. The place is very well designed. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Best Time with my Love."
Had a wonderful time, my boyfriend's birthday was special. Overall experience awesome and we would love to come to this resort in the future.Genuine Expedia guest review
We had a nice trip. The weather was lovely, only rained for 15 minutes on our third day there. The beach and the water was perfect. We will go back to the island but will try a different resort to see what they have to offer. overall we had a great time.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Loved how close the beach was"
Resort was a little big for us. We like more tropical and quaint.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice hotel, close to the beach."
We had a great time. Awesome view from our room. Clean pools. Clean beach. Friendly staff. Good food. Plenty of things to do but also a great place to relax.Genuine Expedia guest review
The one and only complaint I have about the resort is the friendliness of the staff. However, at the family side we had fun bartenders and wait staff. Loved being at adults only but having the option of going to the other side. Resort is huge but they have a train that goes around the resort. This was my 4th time in Punta Cana (first at this resort) […] and found it to be the best beach and food and we did not get hassled whatsoever by people trying to sell us stuff on the beach. There is a market right down the beach where you can barter shop and do excursions for cheaper than on the resort. The grounds were impeccably maintained. I would definitely go back.

"Great resort, buffet, location."
Although very few spoke English, always ended up meeting our needs - which was a group of 20-something-year-old college girls. We probably went to the buffet about 5 times a day.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great on first floor with Patio facing the Pool."
I have been doing this trip for the past eight years. Expedia staff although didn't need much help they were very courteous and helpful. Will probably use Expedia for next years trip.Genuine Expedia guest review

"super clean, loved it"
we had a wonderful time - staff was very helpful and everything was so cleanGenuine Expedia guest review
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Barcelo. We stayed at the Adult Only part of the resort and had a fun, relaxing time. The resort staff were so helpful and professional, seemed as though they couldn't do enough for those that stayed there. The buffet food was mediocre, but the restaurants you made reservations for had excellent food. I would highly […] recommend this resort to anyone and if we get back to the D.R. this is definitely where we would stay! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"second time better than first."
We stayed 10 days vs 7 the first year. I played six days of golf with a friend from Windsor Ontario who was here for their 34th time!! Must have club premium if you go. Say hi to Jose' at the Adults Only bar, we'll be back next year God willing.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, beach, amenities."
The hotel is spread out so you feel like you have lots of space, but it's done in a way that the beach is close for every attendant. The pools are very large, and the beach property is extensive. Of course the water was it's usual aqua blue, but you could walk up to your neck in the water and still see the beach floor. The staff were very accommodating […] and friendly. It seemed as though we 'wanted for nothing' all week, and enjoyed the delicious dinners and scenery. There is also a wide range of sporting activities to do, easily. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Check in was delayed over 2 hours to ready the room, which was a great location on the Caribbean but came with 2 twin beds instead of the king bed we reserved. This was disappointing and never remedied during the week as was promised. The food was poor and service cheerless and slow. Definitely a disappointment after two great experiences at the Barceló […] property in Riviera Maya. Grounds were beautiful, beach fantastic but every meal was disappointing save one. The staff would bicker in front of guests, ignore guests, and seemed disoriented much of the time. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"We were underwhelmed by this resort."
We were looking for luxury, great service and this resort did not deliver. Rooms were very basic. We did not get the King bed that we requested. Two double beds pushed together is not great for romance! Staff was not helpful with this or much else. They were not friendly either! Shouldn't everyone smile if they live in a place like that? Meals were […] very similar each day, fruit was not ripe. Looking for more variety. Towels old, hair dryer broken, bed broken and what is it about wash clothes? I had to beg for one and finally got it on the 3rd day. I've never worked so hard to have a relaxing vacation. On the positive side, the beach and scenery is lovely. Could have sat there all day. Perfect for a budget minded stay if you are not looking for anything special. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We had a confirmation for an Oceanfront, King, Superior Room. We were told when we checked in that there were no more king beds but we could shove the two double beds together in the room they did give us. Apologies were given by the staff and promises of "maybe" in two or three days we might have a king. We were very disappointed with this suggestion […] as one of us was always falling through the crack. We talked to Expedia about this situation while booking an excursion and Expedia managed to find an Oceanfront, king bed room within 1/2 day. Thank you, Expedia! The dinner reservation schedule left much to be desired. We were consistently advised that we could have reservations for 6 p.m. or 8:45 - 9:30 p.m. at all the restaurants available for evening dining. There were no reservations for 7:00 or 8:00 p.m. at any restaurant no matter how far in advance we tried to make the dinner date. When at the restaurants for our 6:00 p.m. reservations, we continually noticed only half of the tables were occupied. We will admit that the 6 restaurants we dined at had excellent food. The staff of Barcelo Bavaro Beach were great and very friendly. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"mostly good with room for improvement"
we were happy with our stay but wouldn't go back and wouldn't recommend it. most of the staff was friendly and helpful, the pool and beach scene was great. maids did a great job. the price was a bit high compared to other places with similar offerings. the food at the buffets were not good. here and there were some good things, but out of 5, buffets […] get a 2 or 3. a lot of the staff spoke poor or very limited English. I know there are a few languages spoken and English is not their primary, but it was difficult to talk w/most of them. I'd try to work on that. the restaurant reservation situation was kinda a joke. too much seafood. couldn't even get reservations for some of them even though we explored 4-5 nights. then we were able to walk into the Mexican one when it was supposedly booked that night. that made no sense but we were thrilled to make it happen. thank God for the hostess. that was the best restaurant. add on to it! restaurants need to be bigger except for the steak house. and that one was gross. very bad dry steak. loved the sports bar buffet, Strikers. loved Chez.

"Beautiful beaches, restaurants not great."
The beaches were expansive and beautiful. The water was crystal clear. The pool was very nice, the staff was exceptional. The big complaint the small group I was with had was regarding the restaurants. They all needed reservations, and would take them days in advance--so they were extremely difficult to get into. Our main issue though was that when […] we walked by the restaurants, or actually got into one--they were almost completely empty. We even tried to walk up to an empty restaurant without having a reservation and we still could not get in. I had read on the website that the Adults Only side (where we stayed) had recently been renovated. I completely disagree. While the room was ok, it had not been renovated or updated in many, many years. The bathroom was a bit old and a bit gross. Service was great and the entertainment both at the main hotel and the Adults Only side was fun. There was a lot to do in the short time we were there. The tram was so convenient to get around the resort. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Couldn't be understood!"
It was extremely difficult for anyone on the staff to understand us. There was a very international population of vacationers and we could speak to each other whether we were from France, Canada, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland, Ireland, England, the US etc. but the staff didn't understand very much english making communication so difficult that we often […] gave up.

"It really doesn't get much better than this."
My wife & I were here from Feb 6-12 & it could not have been a more perfect getaway for us. This is a 'how it was' review & as honest as I can make it. Stayed in the adults only area. 3pm arrival, customs a breeze, $10/person to enter the country. I put our hotel name & address on an index card & just showed it to the porter's at the airport. Got me […] a cab ($30 US) & 20 min to the hotel. Check in was swift. Mid-week travel is easier than weekend to weekend. We were in building 1, 2nd floor, pool-side. Nice ocean view, don't think you would have a good view from ground level though but you get 2 lounge chairs instead of a small balcony. Balcony was great to read, smoke a cuban or just people watch. Read reviews about water on the floor while showering. This is going to happen! You have 1/2 a shower door, but if you stand sideways it is minimal (its the water that runs off your elbow that gets the floor wet). Dinner reservations simple, we ate late 8:30-9:15,on Atlantic time so plan ahead (we are CST). French restaurant nice, Santa Fe pretty good but self serve salad bar & desert bar. No salad dressings anywhere! Coke products & need to ask for COLA LITE to get a diet coke. The word diet does not exist here. Same at the bars. Striker's had awesome ribs.Did not like the Med. Plenty of beach activities but did not participate, we lounged & soaked in the sun. Nice breeze everyday with a lite shower in the pm.Drinks were good,ask for top shelf,they do have Jack. Will return. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel and Beach"
Overall service and value was good. Food was just OK.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A good value for couples in the Dominican Republic"
Know that we have spent 1-3 weeks almost every winter in the Dominican Republic for the last 20 years. The last 3 years we have spent at Barcelo, Bavaro Beach - Adults Only. Here's why: The staff from Servers, Housekeeping, Grounds/beach keeping, to the Security personnel are the most friendly, hospitable and helpful that we have experienced in any […] Caribbean country; the rooms are a little tired but most of them have a sea view and are nicely set up; the whole resort is "Adults Only;" the attachment to Palace Deluxe Resort allows access to 4 very good all-inclusive fine dining/ethnic restaurants, a beautiful Golf course, water park, Casino and Hard Rock Cafe, a good variety of all-inclusive water-sports equipment and large production entertainment every night (if you wish); there are trollies that navigate both resorts and arrive every 5-10 minutes. Bavaro Beach is considered one of the top 10 beaches in the world by National Geographic. Although it has been good the first two years, we should add that a greater majority of the staff has increased it's customer service orientation this year. In talking with individual staff members, they have indicated that new top management has raised the bar. For selfish reasons we are somewhat reluctant to give too good of recommendation for this resort, for fear there will be no vacancies for US next year. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Decent property, won't repeat"
They do a good job keeping the hotel and hotel grounds secure and clean. It's an attractive property with nice pools and a fantastic beach. My first issue was that the buffet and much of the other food is almost inedible, and I'm not a picky eater. And while staff receiving tips were extremely helpful, others such as the front desk staff where challenging […] to work with. Finally, how does a resort this large not have a hotel shuttle? I would only return if I was attending a wedding or conference there, I would not choose this property again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Property is beautiful but service and food.."
The property was nice, beach is perfect, but food is not very good. We could not get reservations any time before 10pm so be prepared to eat buffet. My BFF got married and they wouldn't allow any food to bridal suite which was ridiculous.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful! Will be back!"
I was very impressed with Barcelo Bavaro Beach and I will definitely be back. I really have no interest in checking out other resorts in the area. I went on a girls trip with 3 other girls. So fun! The crowd here is a bit older, but we were able to make new friends that were closer to our age. Pros: Beautiful water, beautiful beach, the beach is kept […] very clean Plenty of beach chairs right on the water with an even balance of shade (from palm trees) vs. sun Friendly staff Events to keep you busy - 2 theatres, casino, many bars/restaurants to choose from, other events during the day, golf course Clean and spacious rooms that are truly oceanfront - we were literally 150 ft from the sand Easy train ride or walk to the sister resort Walking on the beach at night felt very safe and there were many security guards around Beautiful pool area and lounge area - plus you have access to the sister resort pool Rooms were always stocked with water, beer, soda, juice, snacks Easy and affordable wifi access - wifi was available anywhere on the resort (except I think by the golf course) I love that it was adults only Cons: The buffets were not great, but after a couple of days you learn what not to eat and what you are comfortable eating. Really, the buffets just need to be replenished with fresh food. It was so obvious that alot of the food had been sitting around at room temperature for most of the day.

"I loved this hotel"
The Adult only was an excelent option as when we wanted to relax at the beach or pool and when we wanted to retire in the room for the night, we didn't hear, kids running down the halls, yelling, or just making kid noise. When we wanted to liven things up we took the train (3 min ride) to the adjoining resorts we also had access to. The food was adequate, […] and the staff was oh so friendly. The rooms were large and comfortable. I would go back to this hotel in a heartbeat! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great beach vacation spot"
The grounds, food and beverage service, beach, pool, etc. were all fabulous -- beautiful, well presented, friendly staff, etc., but rooms had multiple maintenance issues - emphasis is on public spaces and impression. Little annoyances such as clogged drains, leaky showers, burnt out lights, inoperable door locks, non-functioning TV and hot tubs (we […] were in a group with four rooms, so these weren't all in one), led us to believe that room maintenance is on a "complaints only" basis, so if something is wrong, speak up. They will fix it eventually. Or, just ignore it and enjoy the beach, sand, pool and lots of entertainment choices. Many restaurants and food choices in the buffets, perfectly good and more than adequate. But if you are a real snob foodie, this probably isn't the place for you. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This resort is top notch all the way. Pool was nice.beaches were clean and beautiful.food was plentiful. Something for everyone. Plenty of activities for adults of all ages. Only minor complaint was a lack of washcloths on a couple days. Staff was exceptionally friendly. Barcelo runs a superior business.would not hesitate to book with them again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Amazing experience-will definitely return!!!"
This was my first international trip out of the U.S. and it was an amazing experience. This resort has something for everyone. My friend and I went to celebrate our birthdays (her 40th on Feb. 3 and my 50th on Feb. 5th). It was like waking up in a postcard everyday. We stayed on the All-Adult side which gives you access to Bavaro Deluxe amenities. As […] we were enjoying a vacation without kids, it was nice to be able to be in a kid-free zone, though we spent a lot of time on the Deluxe side. While there were tons of kids, I was amazed at how behaved they all appeared to be. Not being a "foodie" I enjoyed the buffet Miramar for dinner, while the buffet at Barcelo Bavaro Beach was great for breakfast. La Bistra is the best for lunch on the water. We did discover that you may want to make your dinner reservations later in the evening-we missed 3 nights because we were just having too much fun in the sun. The All-Adult side is very quiet in the evenings, so if you want quiet you can have it, if you want to get down and boogie you can head to the Disco. Try the Zip Lining excursion at Scape-went at 7:45 back by 12:30 with a lifetime of memories on my 50th!! Really just not enough words to tell you that this is a must see resort. Only criticism I would make is that some staff could be better trained towards customer service but most were terrific. Some of the issues were probably due to the language barrier as I didn't speak Spanish. I can't wait to go back! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

From the moment we walked into the lobby of Barcelo Bavaro Beach Resort to the moment we left everything about the resort impressed us and blew us away.

"Fun in paradise"
We've stayed at the Barcelo several times and have had a fabulous week on each occasion. I can only think of nice things to say. The food is generally excellent with a broad array of choices and the piano bars in the evening are a really nice touch. Not to nit-pick, but the only negative that crosses my mind is the disco...the facility itself is great […] but the DJs don't play to the demographics of the room and are too stuck on playing rap/pop that very few people want to dance to. With 300+ people in the room, only a few will dance at any one time. They really need a better mix of music more good old fashioned R&R. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Mid January Trip to Barcelo Bavaro Beach"
Was a really nice facility. Stayed Jan 12 - 17th. Our room was ready upon arrival. However, they did try to put us in a two bed room even though booking stated one king sized bed. Ocean view is used loosley. We were right next to the pool, which wasn't a completely bad location. Just a little traffic noise in the evenings. Food was great. One thing […] you need to know is to make reservations for the rest of your stay for dinners. They book fast. Otherwise the buffets are your options. The beach was the best feature and the sand was amazingly soft. We walked each day. Nice shopping and food options at the family side. Not many english speaking and was only a bit difficult at times but not really an issue. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Fabulous location, however a little loud"
My wife and I just came back from staying at this resort. For daytime activities and night life, it was amazing. If you want to sleep....that's another story. It sounds as though people are constantly moving furniture around on the floor above and anyone in the hallway or neighboring rooms can be clearly heard. By this I mean clomping of high heels, […] voices, etc. The staff are excellent and the resort in itself definitely has it all and then some. I think that we would go back, however this time we would know to bring ear plugs or take sleeping pills. If you normally get up between 6-8am, then this is the resort for you. It might be a little bit more difficult though if you are looking to sleep in. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice resort on an incredible beach"
When we arrived we were greeted and checked in promptly, however, were not able to get our room assignment for a few hours after check in. This was fine since we were early, and they still allowed us to use all the resort accommodations. We were given a wrist band and sent on our way, not given much direction. When we tried to make reservations for […] dining that evening, we were told that all reservations for the week were taken at all the restaurants in the resort for the entire week. So every morning we had to stop by guest services in order to see if any of the restaurants had a cancelation which could accommodate four people. The buffets are open most of the day and evening which makes getting food easy, however, the food in the restaurants is much better. The resort is well maintained and the hotel staff is incredibly friendly and accommodate any needs/wants quickly. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

I would rate this hotel as a 3 star not a 4 star. I paid for an ocean view and got a lawn view on the first floor. The Bathrooms are dated and tub drain didn't work well.

"Great winter getaway!"
I was very pleased with my stay. I am a world traveller who does not like all-inclusives.My husband convinced me to get away a few days after Christmas. The best thing i ever did. I stayed in the Adult only side. Food was good, not great but solidly good ( I am an experienced foodie). The trick is to make reservations for the a la carte hotels for dinner […] as SOON AS YOU GET there. I did not get to eat at all of them; however, everyone i spoke with thoroughly enjoyed Chez Gourmet (i thought it was great). The Coral was also great if you like seafood- grilled lobster, langostino and lots of mussels. Alcoholic beverages are also above average and included IThe gym is modern. No one bothers you at the beach and IT IS SAFE to leave the premises, though there is not much to the town. Highly recommend. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

This hotel,part of a huge Bavaro complex, can be highly recommended. It has one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, full of palm trees and White sand and an incredible pool too.

"Like a Slice of Paradise"
Leaving the cold of winter in the Northeast (U.S.) to the D.R. was an easy appeal. This resort, however, was special. The landscape is like a slice from my conception of paradise: tropically bucolic, well-manicured grass, lovely music at the right volume, warmth and even peacocks walking around-- but when you want to see them. There were shops, great […] restaurants, nice beaches and pools. Simply enjoyable in every way. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Overall great resort"
We stayed at the Adults Only part of the resort (2 parents & 2 adult kids in their 20's). If you want a quieter and less crowded part of the resort, stay here. And you still have access to the Deluxe resort that has a lot of restaurants, casino, spa & gym and another pool, without the noise of the kids and the larger crowd. The beach was beautiful and […] very clean. All the restaurants were very good. And the shows were pretty good. The only part I was not satisfied with was Guest Services when we made restaurant reservations with them - most of the times we wanted were booked by the time we got there, so try to make your reservations ahead of time. Also, they got 2 of our 3 reservations wrong (they printed the wrong date or restaurant on our ticket) so triple check the receipt they give you so you can correct them right there & then if they mess up your reservation. But otherwise, we really liked the resort and I do recommend this place (especially for the price for the packages you can get on sites like expedia.com). Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
