I will start off by saying coming from a cold Ottawa winter, one can't really complain about the beauty of a week in the hot Dominican sun. However...this resort left a lot to be desired. It is located on an absolutely beautiful white sand beach with the typical aqua coloured tropical water. The two pools (loud and quiet), were also... More

We stayed at the Barcelo Punta Cana from Jan.10th to the 17th, 2008. We had a wonderful time and we absolutely loved all the staff! Our room was fine, the shower could work a little better, but other than that it was pretty good, we had a fantastic view of the pool area and also partial Oceanview through the trees.... More

We will never complain about time in the tropics during winter. I agree that something terrible has to happen to destroy a vacation and these accommodations are far from inadequate but we may have difficulty comparing it to 4 star accommodations we have stayed at. Befor I get into the resort, we would like to tell Transat to get some... More

We flew with Air Transat, out of Toronto, and had a 10 hour flight delay, of which we didn't find out about until we had arrived at the airport. I was... More

I travelled with my boyfriend to the Barcelo last April '07. The ride from the airport didn't take too long, and we were welcomed with cocktails upon arrival at the resort. Check-in was quick and easy, had our bags brought up. The room was adequate, 2 dbl beds balcony facing one of the pools. There was one problem though -... More
