We chose our trip to Dominican Republic (DR) on a last minute offer and Barcelo Dominican Beach (BDB) was certainly a cheaper alternative for an all-inclusive (AI). POSITIVE: - Great location - private beach (as expected), white sand, a few seaweed (though heard is common in punta cana beach). - Great facilities/rooms ratio - went on the first week of... More

Overall the resort is okay. Nothing glamorous about it but if you are looking for resort on a budget with a bed a beautiful beach the resort does the job. The staff overall is excellent. Within the hour of us checking in our room needed to be changed four times! The first room the gentleman who deliver our luggage to... More

Please please don't waste your money, you will regret it, like me. I would not recommend this holiday to anyone who speaks English! No one here speaks English and i found that awful. Nobody could understand me and my boyfriend, which led to an awful holiday! Too many bad points to list, zero communication from the staff causing major problems... More

I booked this vacation a couple days prior to departure. As a single, African American young adult, I was looking for a safe and fun place to go celebrate my birthday. After reading some of the reviews, I close to cancelling my reservation and finding a new resort. However, I am glad I did not. Overall the resort was nice.... More

Every time I come to Punta Cana, I stay here. Let's be clear, it's not because it's the best choice or even top 10. It's cheap & I always have an amazing time. I go to DR to party not to relax in the room. The rooms do need serious renovations. Even the "renovated" rooms have issues. The restaurants are... More

My family booked a two week trip here, and although we were able to find this all-include place for fairly cheap I regret whatever money we spend here. Upon arrival we found the rooms had old furniture, beds squeaked and the bathroom was an absolute shock- the sink was outside near our bed while the much-needed to be renovated toilet... More

My husband and I came here in October 2012 for our honeymoon. He had traveled before, I had not so I really did not know what to expect from an all-inclusive vacation outside the states. Overall, it was a fun trip. I have been to two other resorts in Mexico since then that blew this place out of the water... More

After a lodging issue at a completely different property, I booked Barcelo last minute, and was able to get a 6 night stay for a good price. Of course, I was worried that the fact that it was available and cheap meant that it was terrible, but it really wasn't. This was my first time at an all-inclusive hotel, and... More

This is the worst hotel i have ever stayed in! The rooms are soooo old, the air conditioning makes noises when on, you have to pay to use the wifi which by the way DO NOT TRUST IT! There's no varuety in the food, the reception personal is not friendly! Horrible experience we had there! I'm not coming there EVER!!!!!
