I went to the Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe in December with a group of 4 friends. Our primary goal was to play golf and enjoy the sunny and warm beach of the carabean.
The resort, the food, the service is excellent. The beach is clean and there are lots of chairs. The golf is one of the best I have been to in the carabean. The course is very challenging so bring many balls if your game is not at its best. Note that you can buy used balls from employees who work on the course.
The only downside to the golf is that you wait a lot if you play between 8 am and 10 am. I suggest reserving early tee times to enjoy the resort after.
Note that to play golf is free but you do have to pay for carts 40$ per person. When you check into the hotel you get a bunch of coupons and one of them gives you a discount on the price of the cart if you buy 4 carts during your stay. If you come for golf be sure to check for the coupons. You also get coupons for the restaurants, massages, etc.
The employees at the hotel are very nice and will gladly help you if you need anything. Always carry a few dollars in your pocket to ensure you always get the best of them. The employees speak all the languages. English and Spanish mostly but also French and a little Russian.
The resort has people from everywhere. Canada, Russia, Italy , Germany and South America are the ones we encountered the most.
The rooms are spacious and mostly renovated. They are cleaned twice every day. You can find specific sections for families, adults and if you want to stay by golf or by the beach the resort can accommodate your choices. Some rooms have jacuzzis on the balcony.
One final thing, there are a lot of mosquitos everywhere on the golf course and around the rooms. Bring good mosquito repellent if you don't want to have bug bites during your stay or if you are allergic.
