. I travel for a living and stay at a lot of amazing hotels around the world. I don't understand some of the reviews that people have left on here about the barcelo Punta Cana. This place was clean, the staff was great and the drinks were strong. The only thing that sucked was the fact we had trouble getting dinner reservations. We have stayed at all-inclusive's before, and didn't have a problem getting dinner reservations at other resorts. It is pretty hard to get a reservation for the restaurants at dinner it doesn't help that every night there is one restaurant that is closed and that there are parties of 30 people. We were only able to make one reservation at a reasonable time, the hotel had already booked us a dinner at 9:30 pm for one night, needless to say we did not go to that reservation because it was way too late. They need to figure out a better way to help guest get reservations because my idea of vacation does not include standing in a line at 8:45 am to get a reservation for the two spots they have open in one restaurant.
That is the only thing I would change, the staff is great and they are so nice and friendly. We got to know a couple of staff, in the dominican republic they make a miserable amount of money for the amount of work they do. please tip them when you can I know it's an all inclusive but if you knew their stories you would try to do more. It's amazing that the staff can be so nice and friendly knowing how much these people really make and how much suffering there is in this country. Especially when the store at the hotel charges guest $37 for sunblock, that's what some of the staff makes in one week. It was definitely a humbling experience that I never expected. We met a lot of really cool people. This was a great trip and I recommend barcelo Punta Cana if you want to be in a secluded area. Great experience despite getting bitten alive by the bugs outside (bring off bug spray) . I had to visit the dr at the resort who was also great and friendly. Check it out for yourselves, great for the price, you get what you paid for. Everyone has a different experience but what we gathered from all the people we met is that we all had a great time and the people were great.
