“The best place to stay in punta cana by far!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Have stayed here before and i refuse to stay anywhere else. They always have the best service, the best food and the best staff here.....hands down! If you ever get the chance to upgrade to the "CLUB PREMIUM", i highly recommend it. You get free massages, personal concierge, upgraded drinks, spa access and 45 mins of hydro therapy each day + so much more. I have stayed in many other places in punta cana, and I can just say Dont waste your time going anywhere else...... Thanks again for a great time Barcelo staff and special thanks goes out to Club Premium manager Rosario (rosie) for always making it even that much better of a trip for us!

Room Tip: If you can, get a suite, they are fantastic!

Barcelo Bavaro Beach is amazing for the money. Great beaches and pools. It felt like our own private club. Go for the Club Premium!!!! Joanna and the gang treat you like gold. She got us reservations at a different resteraunt every night! She even got us into the steak place our first night, with almost no notice. Our room is facing the water and steps from the beach. It's like two hotel's for one. You can also use the facilities at the palace deluxe. I think we will be back.

First time in Punta Cana,six of us went and had a week of fun,sun,and total relaxation.Accommodations were superb.Would return to this adults only paradise in a heartbeat.
The staff at the hotel buffet notably jesus lebron and myra were beyond excellent.They treated us like we were kings and queens.The pool in the hotel was phenominal.

Room Tip: We were on the 2nd floor,and had no problem getting elevators, or with nightlife noise.

Just got back yesterday. No complaints here. Stayed in a standard premium room which faced the pool. Excellent location to walk to everything in seconds. Glad we did not upgrade to deluxe. There was no need. Went to the Palace everyday by the train which you caught out front or walked 10 minutes down the beach. The resort is massive and lovely. Always people working and cleaning. Casino is okay, tons of shopping at the Palace. Overall, food was okay. Ate at Chez Gourmet, La Dolce Vita and the Coral Seafood. Disliked that one the most. Buffets had an over abundance amount of food. No problem finding something to eat everyday. Employees seem to be all nice. Defintely a language barrier. Never had to wait for them to come over and ask us what we wanted. Minimal tips help service. They remember you, even after working a 12 hour day. We didn't do any excursions. Bathrooms could use an update, but no worries.
This was really a nice R and R vacation. Please e-mail me with any other questions. This is how we learned about the resort.

My two girlfriends and I looked at many resorts before choosing the all adult Barcelo Bavaro Beach resort. When we arrived there was a mix up and they were prompt to resolve it and upgraded us to the Premium Package. We were treated with outstanding service. Our hosts Rosario and Mabel made sure everything was perfect. Right down to the bellhop Luna who was alway ready and willing to help us in any way. Housekeeping cleaned our room everyday and turned our beds down every night leaving beautiful towel made swans with fresh flowers on the bed. You will not regret choosing this resort.

Room Tip: we had an oceanfront room on the second floor so the view was amazing.

Let me start by saying the food is amazing! We specially liked the buffets and even had two dinners in a row first at the french restaurant which was ok, but then we decided to go back to the buffet because it was that good. Fresh foods every day! Shrimps were awesome!

Service was excellent and the rooms are clean and so nice! the tub in the balcony is such a nice treat!

The ladies at the Spa were very nice as well.

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.

Room Tip: When going to the beach choose a Beach Front room.
