First, I'll start by saying that I was an international flight attendant for years and have stayed at many resorts world wide. I have never stayed at a resort with such poor customer service as the Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe. Our room was robbed while we were at dinner one night and the hotel did nothing about it. The hotel... More

I have been to many all inclusives but wanted to try something new so I choose the Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe in Punta Cana and stayed 5 nights. The place is just beautiful. The grounds keepers are out there during the day pruning, sweeping the beach, planting new flowers, just wonderful. If you have children, there is plenty for them... More

My sister and I booked this resort for our families to enjoy a nice vacation during the Thanksgiving holiday. Last year we went to the Barcelo in the Riviera Maya and absolutely loved it so we decided to visit the Barcelo in Punta Cana figuring it must be just as nice. I don't consider myself a "fussy, detailed" person so... More

This was my first time in Dominican republic and can say that this was a really nice resort.. The staff was excellent, the cleanliness of the resort was bar none!! However far as the food goes I would have too give it 3 out of 10.. Be prepared too use the bathroom after every meal seriously.. The food was not... More

Beach is beautiful and very wide, but covered with seaweed as is much of the bottom of the seabed. Most everything else is as stated by favorable reviews except the service. Probably 70% of service people were courteous and reasonably efficient as one comes to expect in the Caribbean. But the other 30% range from disinterested to incompetent. This is... More

OVERALL Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe is huge hotel resort at first sight but everything gets close as you are in. I was staying in Junior Suite Deluxe which is left side of the complex and basic type of the room. Reception and lobby with restaurants, bars, shops and theater are centrally located, with spa & wellness with water roof terrace... More

I was a little hesitant to book this hotel for our honeymoon because of all the bad reviews, but I think that this hotel was AMAZING! People sometimes have the craziest expectations (I heard one person complaining about how limited their drink selection was, but they had like 20-something cocktails to chose from). We paid for the Club Premium and... More

Fabulous weather the 1st week of December for our 6th trip to this resort! We were there when it was OK, but they have dropped all the old buildings and rebuilt from the ground up---It is truly a great place now. The specialty restaurants offer a wide variety of top quality meats and fish. The buffets would rival the best... More

I stayed at the Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe in February 2011, and it was amazing. I am a fairly picky eater, and I had no problem eating the food here. In fact, the food was delicious. They have a wide range of restaurants (mexican, Italian, Steakhouse, Seafood) and on top of that they have two buffet restaurants, which I highly... More
