All the negative reviews didn't stop us from having a fabulous time,room was modern,clean and had some nice amenities inc. outside jacuzzi.Beach was exquisite lots of shade and chairs.Buffets were excellent and adjoining beach restaurants were great. We hadn't been to the D.R. in years, but you can bet we'll be back soon!

As with other reviews the check in process was a nightmare. Informed that just because check in was at 3 you might not get a room until 4 or 4:30. We gave someone a $10 and we got a room faster. Met others who were funneled into the other barcelo resorts on the property which were not nice. Everyone we... More

This is not our first trip to the DR, but may be our last, and definitely our last with the Barcelo group. Booked the Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe, and got bumped to the Barcelo Punta Cana. At check in we asked if they had made a mistake, but they insisted that it was what we booked, although I pointed out... More

I don't care how beautiful the place is - it's not worth the stress that it causes! When you save up all year to take a vacation you don't expect this... The owners/management screwed this one up big time - first impressions are everything and this will be most people's last impression because no body deserves to be treated like... More

Once you have read my review there is no need to read any more. The entire experience was absoloutly outstanding. The resort was beautiful and clean, the beach is one of the world's best, the new room we stayed in complete with jacuzzi on our deck was 6 stars, the incredible selection of restaurants from the buffets to the 5...

The hotel is beautiful and the beach was amazing. My stay was ok compared to others. We arrived about 1pm and waited about 45 min to check in. Had to come back at 3 for keys. It was 4 by the time we were in our room. We got an excellent room with an ocean view (although we didn't book... More

The hotel looks beautiful on the outside but once you enter it is the total opposite. Do not be fooled. Check-in took 5 hours. Payed to stay at the Barcelo Palace Deluxe but brought us to the Barcelo Casino instead because there was no room at the Deluxe. These people do not know how to run a resort. We were... More

Booked an ocean front jr suite in the premium section of the resort. Chec-in was slow as we couldn't find the premium office and stood in the regular line. Great people in line so the time went quickly (although1+ hours). Had to go back an hour later for the keys, but you're on Caribbean time! American travellers seemed to be... More
