Just got back from a week at Punta Cana. Never left the resort so I can't review the area, but the Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe is a gorgeous place with excellent service and the perfect location. Turquoise, calm water and sugary white sand beach as well as a great pool. The complex is huge, we rode the train to see... More

We just returned from Punta Cana on 2/11/12 and stayed 8 nights at the Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe. We really enjoyed the facility, appreciated the variety of food and location of the resort. I'm not sure why there are so many complaints posted. I can't image a better trip. The facility is immaculate, staff were very friendly and truly tried... More

First of all, I will say we have travelled to Playa Conchal Costa Rica, Sandals St Lucia and RIU Palace Mexico. The Barcelo Palace rates right up there with these resorts. The resort itself is spotless and beautiful. The details in the lobby and all restaurants is spectacular. Countless employees cleaning the glass, windows, stairs etc etc on a daily... More

Arrived on Feb 9 2012 and still here. The resort is grand, beautiful beach, the rooms are ok.the service is another thing. We were told when we booked that we would have adjoining rooms as we have the kids with us, and at the time of booking family suites were not available. Well that didn't happen. Told to try again...

Just got back from 7 days in a Jr. suite with a great view! Even tho our hot tub didn't work, my husband enjoyed soaking in it and relaxing. Our room was clean and restocked every day. We did leave a few $ now and then, but didn't feel like we HAD to. I did complain once to the concierge... More

We went to this Hotel in December, I wasn't expecting too much out of an all-inclusive property because it is not my style but my wife and I decided to go for this trip with our 3-month baby to please my parents in law. We had great vacations! Food was excellent, we had dinner in every restaurant and the buffet... More

I hate all the negative reviews because they're not true- first of all. This resort is BRAND NEW- it is built for young couples and young families and they have the resort laid out perfectly. We were UPGRADED to the ocean-front junior suite, which was truly incredible. We were there for a week in January and had the best week... More

I have stayed in a number of the hotels in Punta Cana a number of times in the past 7 years and i would say that this was definately the nicest one so far. Check in was fine, took about 10 mins. The room we had (3122) was great, it was in the junior suites section. It was one of... More

We booked three separate units, one in the 5000 block (great view and close to the beach) and 2 units in the family area (8200's)...all very... More
