This was our 2nd trip to Bavaro Beach, Punta Cana. Four years ago we stayed at Allegro Punta Cana & it was fine but this resort is better. Food was very good. Staff was friendly. We love Bavaro Beach. There is not much activity in this region to go outside of the resort but we knew we just wanted to... More

We booked through [--]. It was a great deal and the hotel was amazing! I walked down the beach and must say it looked like the best hotel in Punta Cana. The beach was amazing, the people were wonderful (both tourists and employees), the food was really good, although I would prefer to eat with the locals as their food... More

It was perfect from beginning to end. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, they assisted in any way they could. Our room was kept spotless by a... More

Driving into the Occidental Grand (Flamenco) Punta Cana, the grounds seemed nice enough. We arrived at the hotel at 2:00 pm and did not get into our 80's decor room until 5:00 pm that afternoon. That wasn't so bad compared to the other things that went horribly wrong. We had rain that afternoon and the next day and you'd never... More
