My husband and I just spend our 5 year anniversary at the Barcelo Capella. Although it was not the worst vacation we have ever had, it was far from the best. The main thing that I want everyone to know before they come here is LEARN SPANISH. I cannot believe that no one really mentioned that in the reviews. This... More

We got the best drinks and service from Roberto. He was always happy and made our drinks just like we liked...we enjoyed his attention and his personality! His colleagues there at lobby bar were also fun to be around...they made us laugh. Roberto even knew exactly what we liked and prepared our favorite coco loco with barcelo rum. We hope... More

I believe that the Barcelo management know everything about this hotel much better than the tripadvisor reviewers. What I don´t understand is why Barcelo is not invested a singe cent in this nice place that in my opinion have a lot of potential. Is sad how this hotel is going down every day.. The hotel buldings are nice outside and... More

My boyfriend and I came here for a quick 3 night getaway. I was expecting typical Latin charm and friendliness I've experienced in other countries, but didn't get that much here. The towel guy and activities folks were friendly, but not the reception desk folks. So, our holiday started out by waiting at the front desk for about 30 min.... More

Ask for recent pictures!!! All what is left of the beach is a narrow strip of sand used by 100's of sellers walking between the wall and the (1) row of sunbeds. At High tide, one post of the beach volley post is in the sea... Situation getting worst by the day. Since the beach was the only reason I... More

I took a group of 10 people to the resort. Before going, I read all of the reviews but I ignored the negative reviews!!! The group had a great time. We arrived and was treated as VIP immediately. The group was so impressed. Entertainment was good and the group enjoyed the people in and around the resort. Service by the... More

My husband and I had limited time due to work for a quick escape to the Caribbean (Nov. 7 - 12). We found excellent airfare to the Dominican Republic, and booked the Capella Beach Resort knowing it was not a 5-star place. This was our experience: ARRIVAL: Bellmen promptly took us up to the Registration area. Luis checked us in... More
