I just spent 8 days at the Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe (April 5 to 12, 2015), as well as the Barcelo Beach. It was absolutely fabulous! Despite being almost full, it did not feel crowded. There was always room on the beach, no competition for beach chairs, or tables at the buffet. The availability of activities was wonderful and the... More

We have stayed there in the past and are booked for next mouth Folks who are disappointed in the lack of English speakers should realize this is a Spanish speaking country. Many guests also come from South America as well. Learn a few simple phrases and you'll have a wonderful time. Also, service employees are not well paid anywhere. A... More

We received great service from everywhere - very friendly staff - the Jacuzzi's on the veranda's was a very nice touch!! the only negative I could say... More

Beautiful hotel with wonderful amenities. We were there from 4/6 - 4/12. Here's an overview: - Resort is huge - lots of pools and activities for the family. We played paddle ball (which was free during the day) every morning, which was a blast! My kids loved the water park too. (One day was free, after that it's $20/day). -... More

Let's start with the Arrival @ Punta Cana Airport. We have been 3 times in PC before and surprised to see how the Airport did grow excessively. So we had a horrible long line on the immigration. It took us almost 2 hours! After we finally arrived @ this 5 Star Resort we expected a warm welcome as we're used... More

My family and I stayed a week over spring break at this fabulous resort. We were very happy with our experience. The grounds and beach are fantastic with beautiful clear blue water and white sand. The hotel is beautiful as well. We were very happy with the restaurant choices,. The Kyoto Japanese restaurant was really fun and probably our favorite.... More

Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe is my favorite resort in Punta Cana. As a former resident of the DR (i live 3+ years in Punta Cana) I have visited and experienced 30+ hotels in Bavaro/Punta Cana and this property is always my favorite to come back to. All rooms are close to the beach, restaurants are great and the property is... More

Every resort or cruise I have been on would always be a pleasant experience with the staff. This was not the case here. It took 2 HOURS to check in because they messed up our reservation, and it was almost like we were a burden on them...and the worst was the management staff. If you're gonna send someone to correct... More

This was our first time. We went with out two daughters (3y and 5mo) and my mother in law. It was the best vacation we have had in a while. We stayed at a two bed room and it was the perfect size. Everything was spot less and service was impeccable. Food quality was good. We didn't want to leave... More
