The Barcelo Bavaro Beach - Adults Only*****hotel is located on one of the 10 best beaches in the world, in the Punta Cana area of the Dominican Republic. This dreamy hotel has reinvented itself after a complete renovation to become an exclusive hotel for adults only.

The hotel offers first class rooms 80% of which are located right on the beachfront. This makes it the most perfect place for a romantic getaway.

Enjoy the exquisite range of cuisine on offer at the hotel through the Barcelo All Inclusive Programme with its Caribbean Buffet, Chez Gourmet and La Brisa restaurants; 9 a-la-carte restaurant options: Chez Gourmet (international), La Brisa (Mediterranean), El Coral (fish and seafood), Santa Fe (meat), La Dolce Vita (Italian), Mexico Lindo (Mexican), La Fuente (Spanish), Kyoto (Japanese) and La Comedie (Gourmet - additional charge except for Club Premium guests).

Visit the facilities where you can find different options to fill your days: football pitch, tennis court, swimming pool, golf course, water sports, wellness centre, theatre and casino. This exclusive resort set on a virgin beach welcomes you with a cocktail, spoils you with drinks by the pool and offers you a 45 minute hydrothermal circuit, per person once during your stay. There are also 2 massage beds in the pool area (at an additional charge).

Staying at this hotel also grants guests access to the facilities of the Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe, a hotel which shares some of its services and facilities.

This hotel is one of the very few in the country that boasts the international BLUE FLAG for compliance with the standards required by the non-profit non-governmental organisation the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE).

The resort is closed (again) and we were not warned prior to our arrival, despite the resort closing several days before our arrival. I would have booked another adults only hotel as the palace side of the resort is absolute chaos during COVID. I’m disappointed Barcelo told us it would be open when we called and they even advertised the reopening on social media. I’d highly recommend looking elsewhere if a relaxing, adults only experience is what you are looking for, as this resort has twice proven they do not care about the guest experience.

Dear Guest, We sincerely appreciate the time you spent to share your comments regarding our Barceló Bavaro Beach adults only hotel, our guests' feedback is of utmost importance to ensure our demanding standards of service at all times, please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience you may have experienced during your stay. We realize Covid has put a big stain on everyone, and rules change regularly. Sometimes decision must be taken, even do planned differently. Unfortunately, there is still not enough demand to keep the hotel open. You may take for sure that we all would love that this would be different. Please realize things change faster than can get communicated. Thank you once again for making us your choice hotel, we certainly look forward to serving you again and to have the opportunity to exceed your expectations in a not too distant future. We sincerely hope that you enjoyed your stay at the Bavaro Palace, taking into consideration that it features different Adults Only areas, such as a pool, a pool bar and the Coffee Bar. Kind regards Sandy Pfeil

Hotel's Favorite
We are staying here now, through 1/2/2021. I have been impressed over and over with this place so far. Food is great, even at the buffet, we have eaten at two restaurants for dinner at this point and have more reservations through the week. Food is fresh. Staff takes CoVid precautions and they serve you, you can QR code’s and every wears a mask. The guests are all asked to use hand sanitizer and temp checked before entering the restaurants. This is our honeymoon and the staff has done several things to make it extra special from champagne in our room and cute shirts to discounts at the spa! Checking in went great too, luggage was sanitized before it touched the staff’s hands. We have the all inclusive package at the adults only side and it amazing. I am so glad they reopened just before we came and they just reopened La Brias too, which was a delightful dinner our first night. We didn’t have hot water at first but asked for it to be turned on and within 30 mins we had hot water. Since this side was closed for a while it makes sense things were off. They do want you to enjoy your time and have been very nice. I’ll add a update when we leave.

My husband and I travelled from January 2-9. HOWEVER, PLEASE NOTE THAT THE RESORT IS CLOSED!!!!!!!! EFFECTIVE JAN 6TH, THEY ARE CLOSED!!!! However, you still have access to Palace side, or they may move you to the palace side! However, we paid the same price for both! It is the same... surprisingly. During our time at the ADULTS section, Jan 2-6 was PHENOMENAL. So quiet, relaxed, no screaming kids... 2 min walk to the beach.. what else could you ask for?! Tbh, the BUFFET at the PALACE side is COMPLETELY ANARCHY and CHAOS, but on the ADULTS SIDE, it is PURE BLISS!!!!! No lines.. no screaming kids.. FOOD WAS EVEN 10X BETTER!!! Overall, 10/10 highly recommend! The a la carte were ALL WONDERFUl. 12/10 for all a la carte, especially the steakhouse, Japanese, and Italian!!!! Seafood one was just mediocre. We've been to sandals/bahia Principe and RIU chains, and this was our FAVORITE ONE after our honeymoon to SANDALS Jamaica :)

This a huge resort with 2 sections: Family section : The palace and Adults only section : The Barcelo Bavaro Bach section other restaurants of the Palace. Make sure to do reservations early. Bars There are only 2 bars in the Adults only section. Lobby and pool bar. It would be awsome if they add another bar with a theme like Hideways sections in Royaltons or the Paradisus adults only do. Drinks are good nothing more Go try coffee in the coffee lounge in the Palace section they are very tasty Service Almost workers in this resort are friendly and nice. Sometimes you got a bad service but it’s rare and it’s humain : they get tired sometimes because some guests are not respectful so be nice with these workers I would come back only if it is a good price and no more than 1400$ per person I tried both of these sections. If you want absolutely a modern room you need an upgrade in the barcelo Beach category of rooms. The superior Room has a fancy name but no fancy reality : old room old design bathroom need improvement, clean overall and very classic and basic, nice partial sea view nothing more. We upgrade to the junior suite and it was really different, modern, very clean and just perfect. The junior suite section was between the two sections of the resort : The palace and the barcelo beach adults only The Aircanada rep helped us to resolve our problem with the room, we got an nice treatment from Guest Service they were very helpful and we got a nice attention from the manager Sandy, very professional lady perfectly fluent in English also. The day she met us, she was very professional Beach This is one of the most beautiful beaches in Bavaro. It has the paradisiaque caraïbe touch. It’s turquoise and calm with no waves sometimes and it’s just perfect in all sens ! Food Good , nice variety and presentations in buffet and a la carte restaurants are good also , nice stuff, they are very professional and respectful in all restaurant the caraibe Buffet, La Brisa and Chez Gourmet. My favourite was the la Brisa for the view: oceanfront. Chez Goumet is a real à la carte and food was very tasty in a chic decorated atmosphere. Langoustines are included in the menu with no extra charges. You have also acces to almost all the restaurants of the palace Bars Only 2 bars in this adults only section It would be great if they add one with a theme like in Hideway in Royaltons. Drinks are not bad. Don’t miss the coffee shop in the Palace ! Service Workers are very friendly almost the time. Be nice with them they are working hard and some guests are not respectful sometimes. I would come back if the price is under 1400 per person per week

This resort isn't even open although they still have no problem taking people's money for the booking. I booked a trip here through Air Transat in late December only to find out that the resort isn't even open. This is an adults only resort attached to a larger family friendly complex that was supposed to have its' own restaurants, bars, pool, beach area, etc free of kids. I only discovered this because I contacted the site management for room selection and they informed me that the adults only side is closed and all adults only rooms would be sent over to the family side when they arrived. No a la carte breakfast, no adults only bar, no private beach. So if hadn't emailed to book a room I would have only discovered this when I arrived? Only 4 restaurants are even open in the whole resort. I find it pretty unprofessional to essentially trick people into booking a room at your resort. Advertise a certain type of exclusive room package and just throw everyone together when they arrive? Stay somewhere else.

Dear Thomas, First of all, thank you for choosing our hotel for your next stay. Unfortunately and due to the given circumstances we were in need to extend the closing of our Barceló Bávaro Beach, which will remain closed until the 30th of December. For this reason, all reservations are honored at no extra cost at the Bavaro Palace. On the other hand, we would like to take the oppotunity to clarify that the Bavaro Palace features an Adults Only Pool with exclusive bar for our guests use. In addition, since last Sunday we have assigned a block for adults only (block 4 of the Beach section, it is far from the sections that are open for families) that areas we have been opening only the weekends, but from that date we will keep it open as adults only until the Hotel Bávaro Beach opens) Regarding the beach, this is in front of this block and normally there are no children and is enabled for their use. To enjoy all our gastronomical offer, we have permanently open our buffet restaurant (breakfast, lunch and dinner – no closing times), as well as 4 of our a la carte restaurants. Depending on the occupancy, other restaurants are opened in addition. We sincerely apologies for any inconvenience, however, kindly ask you for your understanding. Please rest assured that our Bavaro Beach staff would be more than happy to receive you at your chosen hotel! Kind Regards. Customer experience Barceló hotel group
