We vacationed with two other couples at the Barcelo Bravaro Beach adults only part of the resort. The whole vacation was exceptional!! We couldn't have asked for better service from the entire staff at the hotel. the lobby bar was also a good place to enjoy a cocktail with bartender Jose Arno and waitress Alexandra Santiago. I would highly recommend this resort as far as value, cleanliness and service

Just perfect.Service,food,entertainment,a perfect week in a perfect location.
For people who look for perfect beach but within the secured borders of a huge hotel complex.It feels good being pampered though..:)

The hotel grounds were expansive. There were 6 Barcelo properties grouped together on one plot of land. You needed to take a shuttle to get around. The more expensive the room you stayed in, the closer you were to the beach. The food was fair (comparable to cafeteria food) The alcohol was no-name brand, unless you wanted to pay some extra $$ for a drink. The majority of the people employeed did not understand, nor care to understand English.By this I mean, they did not seem interested in addressing any questions or needs we might have voiced. The larger portion of the guest were from everywhere except the United States. I did not hear too much English being spoken, except for Canadian and British.We were permitted to make 3 reservations for a week long vacation. The restaurants were just fair. I would never, ever, ever stay at a Barcelo property again. This is a very poorly run operation. I would have been better served had I returned to any of the other hotels that I had visited while in Punta Cana in the past. Pass this place, if you are wise.

Room Tip: If you want a good room, stay at another establishment.

This place is amazing i never wanted to leave, we went over New Years and stayed on the adult side of the resort but could use all of the facilities in the family section . The resort was all in white lights on all the trees which was beautiful and they had Christmas decorations and trees all over they really did a nice job not too much ,Overall it was clean and well kept grounds and walk ways.Had a garden view room very end it was clean with chairs outside as well as loungers on the lawn.Hotel staff was great and our maid was so cute and always did a great job.On site Casino Disco Duty Free Shop as well as stores you could shop in. Waterpark, golf course,and medical centre and dont fear the train runs around the resort it takes about 20 mins.Food was amazing the presentation and the amount was just overwelming on the buffets anything you want is there, and i am a person that does not like alot of things. There were too many restraunts to pick from for your al a cart we did three all great.Beach was clean and amazing white sand watersports are free we took a boat out water was crystal clear well kept pool area . There is nothing bad to say about this resort it was amazing in every sence of the word and New Years sit down 6 or 8 course dinner i lost count and fireworks on the beach over Punta Cana.Oh ya and we got a bottle of Rye full size delivered to your room for New Years how much better can it get . Go you wont be dissapointed .

Room Tip: Garden view bottom floor end of the adult resort.

We booked our honeymoon premium package through a travel agent. Overall our stay was very accommodating. Hotel personnel were very helpful. Our best experience was with Club Premium personnel. All of them went out of their way to make our stay very pleasurable. Especially Jazmine who went above and beyond any expectations. Even to the point of remembering our names when she saw us again. She also took the time to personally ship an item of clothing that was left behind. This is something that one usually doesn't expect even at the best accommodations. Our only complaint is with the bar staff giving VERY preferential treatment to those who tip which is NOT acceptable at an all inclusive setting. The beach was breathtaking and staff kept pool area clean. We found that by upgrading to the highest packgage that you receive the best service automatically and that everything is included without exception. There were no hidden costs or charges for anything besides excursions outside of the resort. The Delta Vacations Guide (Wellington) was a complete joke. He was not helpful to anyone we talked with and was only out to sell excursions through his company. This was a total missrepresentation of what we expected through Delta.
Overall the trip was pleasant, food and mixed drinks were good, guest services excellent, resort was beautiful along with one of the prettiest beaches we've seen. We would probably return again but only as premium club beach members.

Room Tip: Select the highest premium package. Its well worth the initial investment.

Upon arrival we checked in at the Palace only to find out we were spread out across the whole resort. The desk personal was not helpful and when we asked for the manager on duty was told he was in a meeting without even attempting to get him or her. Please note I am a Travel Agent and send lots of clients to Punta Cana and was disappointed to find that this is the type of service they would get when they get there. Of course I went to the concierge and received assistance in relocating us to rooms closer together by Juan De Leon. He went above and beyond to make us happy.

I took 4 women over the age of 62 to this property. One of which is my mom. At age 75 she walks with a cane. Luz Morla and Libra Do could not have been more accomodating each time we arrived to the buffet restaurant at the beach property. We always received a table for 5 and our coffee was hot. Our drink request was granted promptly. Their service is what you expect when spending the amount of money for a rejuvenating vacation. Unfortunately, the restaurant next door (Chez Gourmet) with a $25.00 surcharge per person was not as accomodating, the food was terrible and when we complained they just shrugged their shoulder and gave us the bill. I do not recommend that restaurant (Chez Gourmet) at all. Fortunately, Santa Fe Steakhouse and Le Fuente was excellent with service as well as food and drinks.

One other problem if you plan on sleeping in, the maids were very rude and loud. Thank god the room has 2 doors to help keep some of the loud music and loud mouth noise down. They also did not clean the room until 4 or 5 pm daily. I was there 4 nights.

Needless to say, this was my second trip to this property and I am not sure if I will return again.

Room Tip: Recommend you stay at the Beach property on a higher floor.
