My recent stay at the Barcelo Bavaro Beach Club Premium for Adults was better than expected. Do not let the word "Adult" scare you off. This hotel does not have nude beaches and half naked people run around. It means exactly as it states Adults only. I strongly advise to pay a little extra for the "Premium Club" upgrade. You will thank me later. Upon arrival you will attempt to check in at the front desk, but once you are recognized as a Premium Club member you will be taken to a separate air conditioned building and greeted by a glass of champagne and two concierges. I work in the Oil and Gas industry. So I have stayed in all types of hotels from two light town dives to five star hotels. I have never been greeted or treated like this upon arrival unless I was paying for the Honeymoon suite or the Presidential suite. The pampering and the perks did not stop after checking in. I arrived in late with an attitude because the plane did not have AC. But the premium club manager Aracelis Rosario handled all my problems with a smile. She changed my room 3 times until I was satisfied and arranged a spa treatment for me even as the spa was about to close. All this was done on the night of arrival. The next day I saw her all I could do was apologize for my attitude. The hotel is part of larger complex which you will enjoy. Very clean hotel with shuttles every 5 minutes. Tours leave on time and deliver the experiences in which it states in the brochure. Beaches are clean and the drinks great. I will be back since the staff knows me on a first name basis now. When you check into the premium club ask for Ms. Rosario.
