Wasn't at all good. Room smelled musty. People where extremely rude and as a Spanish speaking Dominican I was treated awful. The food was terrible and I will never stay there again. I learned my lesson on getting something cheap . Also if you don't smoke this is a bad choice there is smoking permitted everywhere !!!

This was the first place I ever went on an all inclusive and it was incredible. The pool was amazing, the staff were incredible and the food wasn't too bad. The beach disco was amazing probably the best part of the trip. The only thing I didn't like about this resort were the vendors on the beach. One lady on... More

My favorite part of this resort was the variety of fruits it had! I haven't seen that much variety neither at Cancun or Punta Cana so props to Puerto Plata! Also, try to stay at Building 12. They have the nicest rooms and the best views! Truly a great resort! I recommend it to those people that don't mind few... More

Sunscape Puerto Plata is coming soon to the Dominican Republic! Opening February 15th 2016. The Barceló closed and was purchased by Sunscape Resorts. Sunscape Puerto Plata will offer a wide selection of culinary choices within its eight restaurants and bars, and is surrounded by a beautiful 18-hole golf course. Lets hope SunScape fixes all that was wrong with the Barcelo

This Place was horrible, lets say i upgraded to "VIP" but it was nothing special about it. We got there late night and had to wait almost 10 minutes to get a ride from the parking area because it was no place to park around hotel and the designated area was rally far away. To be VIP it was no... More
