I read the reviews before choosing this resort so I knew what to expect as far as the terrible check-in chaos. Once we got to our room all was forgotten and we got to enjoying our vacation. The resort was absolutely gorgeous but much bigger than I had ever experience before. Ratings as follows: Beach - amazing and there was... More

We stayed at the Barcelo Punta Cana for my best friend's wedding on May 3. If we hadn't been with such great friends for such a fabulous event, this would have been the worst vacation of my life. From the moment we checked in until the moment we checked out, no one working at the resort could figure out what... More

We stayed at the Barcelo Premium Punta Cana from May 2-May 8. I had been reading reviews for months before we left and had some concerns based on some of the bad reviews, but overall, it was a great vacation---the resort met and/or exceeded our expectations across the board. We stayed in room 3329 which was a remodeled room and... More

We stayed in Barcelo Punta Cana from March 13-20th, 2008. We managed to get a wonderful last-minute price deal online for this March break period, and were unsure what the quality would be for such a late booking. We do a lot of travel to Europe, and stay in many resorts and hotels there, and have also visited Florida and... More

We went to Punta Cana on April 15th for two weeks returning on April 29th. There were five of us aged 21 and 22. We had many tiny bugs in our bathroom but that was our only problem. After buying some Raid, it was completely fine. We were on the top floor in building six. We had nice high ceilings... More

Firstly, BEST BEACH IN ALL OF PUNTA CANA! nuff said. Unlike the other resorts, we had no seaweed, no sharp rocks, no coral… nothing but soft white sand and warm ocean water. We vacationed at the Barcelo P.C April 17-25th. We were 4 people, ages 32 to 49. Of course with every vacation there are minor glitches but all in... More
