Myself & my partner Paul stayed at the Barcelo from 22/09/08 to 08/10/08 and had a fantastic holiday. With every holiday & complex there are always a few minor details that could always be improved - the main one for us was check-in. On arrival at the hotel, it took us over an hour to check-in which was very frustrating... More

Our 3rd Punta Cana trip, previously at the Majestic and Bahia. The deal at this Barcelo was just too good to pass up. The hotel manager Tania is the saving grace of this resort. Coming from 5 star we almost bailed next door back to the Majestic. This place has potential but is not there yet. Structural and design issues,... More

We transferred to this hotel from Dreams after just 5 days, see my review about that nightmare. We arrived very hopeful and at face value it was a vast improvement. Its appearance, staff and facilities were more in line with a 4*+ which it had been rated. The food was plentiful and always hot, the pool was lovely and had... More

The rooms in block 7 are not good, ours was damp and dirty but it didnt seem a problem to change rooms at reception, we were given an upgraded room with an ocean view.........fabulous.........until they tried to...

Just got back from a great week in Punta Cana at the Barcelo Premium Resort from 9/13 to 9/19 and thought I'd add a review. I read quite a few beforehand and found them to be very helpful - I knew what to expect and had no big surprises. This is a pretty objective review, and while there were no... More

We stayed at this hotel 21st September 08 and read many conflicting reports on this website concerning the hotel that we felt we wanted to add our opinion. The hotel is marketed as a four star hotel. The rooms allocated to guests staying with our operator, Thomson TUI, were in the older part of the hotel and this is where... More

First of all should anyone complain about an all inclusive for 297.00 plus taxes per person.... probably not because you shouldnt expect much at this price level. Hotel room was sub par buffet was sub par, alacartes were average, pools and beach were superberb But then i am comparing to resorts we have spent 5 times as much at .... More

I would suggest you never stay here. We stayed there in April 08. 8 of us (4 couples). We went for a vacation and to renew our vows. We all go south every year. The experience was not a good one. You need not know the detail. Just belive me. Don't stay there. We have complained since we got back... More
