Great hotel, great food, lovely staff all round, room maids Angela and Dawinia great. Good weather what more could we ask for.
We will go back in the near future either as a couple or a group.


The only complaint
Did not rate Sayona island (day trip) advertises a restraunt for lunch, could not have been further from the truth. The price of 92 dollars each pricey and a waste of money.

Room Tip: the higher your room less mozzies away from pool areas adult only block (Amber)

This resort is AWESOME. We went on a honey moon with my wife and it was everything we was looking for. A thing to have in mind is that all the resorts are close to each other and you can see them as you walk by the beach....really this one was the best. All inclusive works perfectly! the room was gigant, there are many pools, bars, events, karaoke, etc etc etc...A very nice experience to relax and have fun for a week or two.

Room Tip: The hotel is big, in fact, it has like 5 hotels inside the resort. There are rooms next to the beach...

Just returned from a fortnight here. Loved every minute. Been to the Mexico Baha'is on four seperate occasions and thought we would try here for a change. The value is fantastic,spoke to people on return and they all would prefer bahia. They only downside from the Mexico site is that you can travel to the 3 hotels for a different aspect but at bavaro you can only go there or the punta Cana hotel which is a mirror image. Next year though we are going to the esmerelda as on inspection it looked far superior and well worth the extra cost.

We just returned from this resort and spent 10 full days at this amazing resort which truly is a 5 star resort! Our room was fantastic & overlooked palm trees & quiet setting with a pool off in the distance. The Staff work SO hard, are very friendly & will go out of their way for you, you can even get a fresh coconut off a tree if you want one! Bavaro Lobby is magnificent & always fresh coffee, juice & dainty's available every morning. Buffet is fantastic with everyday something different to choose from. We went to 5 of the 9 al la cartes and were not disappointed with any of them, the Italian & Japanese were our favs! Beach is awesome & well maintained & kept SO clean. There's a pool for everyone from busy to quite and even a kids water park, tons of shopping within the resort and lots to see. If you're planning a vacation to Punta Cana, this resort is the one for you where you will feel like royalty every day you're there we would recommend the Bavaro highly!

All inclusive, everything fab, staff brilliant. The only downside was the poor spider monkey on a chain being forced around the residents for photographs along with the beautiful parrots with clipped wings. Five dollars a photo, they would be better letting these poor creatures enjoy what they love most - freedom

Room Tip: Choose a pool view if possible, There really aren't any beach views.
