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.

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.

Overall the stay was great. The staff was more than accommodating and super friendly. However, the rooms in 4000 series building need major updating. When showering, water splashes all over the floor. The toilet and shower are together and it is extremely small. The mini bar is very mini :) and leaked condensation all over the floor each time you opened the door. I expected more from a "5 Star" hotel. The adult side of this resort lacks the shopping, stores, swim up pool bar and bigger restaurants. I would have rather stayed on the Palace side instead of the adult side to take advantage of those amenities. However, there is a train or golf cart that takes you to the Palace side.

Hotel's Favorite
We were there from July 30th to August 6th. First travel in almost 2 years because of the pandemic and we were pleasantly surprised. It was our first time at this resort and we loved the Adult side although some music with a little more beat would of been nice by the pool. Because of the « spa type music » all day, a lot of people were bringing their own music, all different types so it was a bit wild because of that. That being said, we loved our stay. From the staff, the site, the weather, the food, the cleanliness of the rooms, everything made our stay a GREAT one. The rooms do need a little improvement furniture wise to give them a little more modern look, but even with that we had all we needed and they were always kept clean. We felt safe with all the measures taken because of COVID, even more that some places here in Quebec. We will definitely be back, hopefully soon. We did miss the shows at night and wondered why there weren’t any especially because the theatre area is basically outside. People could have been seated while respecting a safe distance. Hopefully they will start again soon, some other hotels have started them again outside. Thanks to all that work at this hotel for making our stay a great one.

The best hotel, great staff and great management. Will be back. Hope some A la carte Restaurants in Palace will be allowed back in the future for Barcelo Bavaro Beach guests as well. Chez Gourmet was the best this time.

Top Level service, it starts once you arrive at the property. The food was good, some restaurants surpassed our expectations and one thing that stood up from the trip is how clean the place is, the attention for details and the great service by the employees. You have access to the whole property at Bávaro Palace which is a +. Definitely will recommend and will visit again.

I was a little nervous making reservations after reading some of the negative reviews. Please don’t pay any attention to the negative reviews that you see here. There are some very self entitled people that bring homegrown rude behavior to other countries. I recently stayed at the Barcelo Bavaro Palace Adults Only and I had the most wonderful time. The property is immense and beautiful!! The beach was perfect! Upon check in, we were greeted by personnel at the premium office. Check in was perfect and superb! Upon check in, we made reservations for a different restaurant each night. My favorite restaurants were Kyoto Japanese, La Brisa Mediterranean, and the Italian restaurant. Loved the spa. I highly recommend giving yourself the whole package. Left Punta Cana feeling relaxed! The buffet at the adults section was fantastic. Personnel were so friendly and greeted us with a smile each and every time. A very BIG THANK YOU to “El Clásico” who made sure our mini fridge was stocked with drinks and amenities each and every day and who greeted us even from afar each time we saw him at work while we walked to the pool and the buffet. I highly recommend that one purchase the premium level. It’s worth it! The only wish i have is that La Piña bar should offer basic cocktails and beer to premium level clients without charge as it’s close to the beach and adults only rooms. One has to walk far to the pool side bar that offers all inclusive drinks. I highly recommend Barcelo Bavaro Palace!! I will definitely be returning in a few months!

We’ve just arrived yesterday and so far we have a mix feeling about the resort. Positive: beautiful landscaping, nice appointed buildings with sea views from almost every room, great customer service and amazing food (so far). On the down side: the rooms need major repairs- the toilet in our room is leaking, the balcony door is not closing properly, you cannot use the safety pin to lock it. Same goes for the front door, the key cards keep loosing the magnetic setting and had to have it reset twice on the first day. Other issues: the bedding is old and stained, we’ve found the mattress cover on one of the beds stained with what appears blood. Spent the morning of our first day for repairs to be done as someone needs to be in the room for these to happen. I’m attaching some pictures of both the good part and the bad of the resort.

We loved our third floor superior room with the Seaview for seven nights. Tip: Choose nightly from eight restaurants. The staff is excellent and hard-working. I enjoyed daily sailing, beautiful pools, grounds, and other water sports. The food is very good and plentiful. All inclusive food, bar drinks, and activities. Excellent restaurant staff and buffets with many offerings including vegan, vegetarian, local cuisine, and familiar favorites. Choose evening restaurants (8)on your first day. Thanks to staff:Maria Salas (buffet), Glason Miller (guest services), Eddy Acosta, HOUSEKEEPING!! and the entire sailing staff, especially Virginia, Toro, and Victor! (PS—The 5000 bldg is conveniently located.) What a relaxing vacation! Thank you.

First time at this resort! We stayed in building five, second floor from July 3--11. We wanted adults only with a large, palm tree filled beach and that is what we got. Seaweed was not much of an issue the first few days, but then it increased. However, I went in the water anyway and made the best of it. It beats the beach and ocean where we live any day, seaweed or not. Calm, clear, warm water. The room was very clean and pleasant, and housekeeping was super friendly and did a great job along with the guy who stocked the mini fridge. Actually, all the staff were very friendly. It is true that many only speak Spanish or limited English, even more so than at other Punta Cana resorts we've encountered. However, I know enough Spanish to get by pretty well and could communicate effectively with everyone. Food was amazing! We only dined at the buffets, and we found most of the food to be very good, I liked the grouper and chicken along with the local food as well. True, some things were one and done for me, but I always found something to eat. We tried Strikers once on the family side and ehhh.....food was not good and the place was just dirty. That was the only place we really didn't like, but we didn't really want to spend much time on the family side anyway. Drinks were very, very good. Frozen drinks, cocktails, you name it. Try the zombie drink! My favorite bartender was Esteban at La Brisa. Really good drinks in the lobby as well, and the young man playing the piano there in the evening was extremely talented. We didn't spend as much time as we'd like there or stay for shows given the smoke though. Yes, it's outside but it can get pretty smoke infested in the evening when everyone congregates. Husband and I like to exercise on vacation and we had fun every morning running around the track circling the soccer field. He also ran on the field. I ran along the pathway by the beach as well. If you're a runner, then you will love this resort! My only complaints would be that I wish breakfast could be served to maybe noon at the buffet, and I also agree that the walls are thin as others stated. However, it wasn't a huge issue so long as you didn't have rude people near you. We had two awful and obnoxious American men in the room above us on Weds. night who were so loud and ridiculous. Banging, slamming, screaming, cussing. We leave the US every July to get away from people like that. I talked to staff about it the next day and I was relieved to hear they had checked out. There was some drunk American guy screaming for Lewis for let him in and kept banging on a nearby door for a half hour a couple nights later, but that was nowhere near as annoying as those two drunk guys above us who carried on until four a.m.. Other than these annoying guests, we did not have any issues with anyone and most people seemed to just want to relax and have a good time. We slept well other than those two nights and the bed was super comfortable. I also enjoyed the wildlife there--native birds, little red crabs, and the cutest hermit crabs. The resort is very pretty and well kept. It also felt very safe. We didn't have any safety issues or get ill at the resort. I would certainly stay here again and consider it one of my favorite places in the DR.

We booked a last minute trip at the adults only section and quite honestly have very low expectations we just wanted a few days in the sun and the price point was amazing. I had emailed the premium club concierge a few times with request to upgrade to a suite and each time I was replied to instantly and kept up to date by Mabel and Julio. They made all my restaurant reservations ahead of time and had them printed out and ready for me. We used DAT private transfer and got a chauffeured Tahoe each way for $140 great deal and separate review posted. We arrived and were struck just how big the resort is. The bell hop took us immediately to the premium lounge private check in were got to meet Mabel finally was able to thank her for all her help. Nice cold beer and quick orientation and off to the room, we had a premium level (worth the upgrade) ocean front. As a lot of people have said the rooms are dated, bathrooms very small by todays standards but clean and well presented. The term adequate leaps to mind. Only been in the room ten minutes and received two calls back-to-back confirming room was all good and did we have any questions NICE TOUCH. The resort in MASSIVE be prepared to do a lot of walking if you are using the restaurants in Palace, they do have a shuttle but we were in building six so we just hoofed it!!!! Ocean front walk to restaurants and quick way back!! BE AWARE THEY DO ENFORCE THE LONG PANTS RULE FOR GUYS IN THE SPECIALTY RESTAURANTS We ate at chez gourmet fantastic experience and blew me away the quality. We ate lunch most days at either Las Brisa’s buffet or Caribe buffet, tons of selections great service. We tried the Dolce Vitta superb food and Felix the waiter was awesome, we dined at la Fuente fantastic ambiance and service however we ordered incorrectly and the leg of lamb was not a hit with me or my wife. No slight on restaurant it was just not what we had expected. The palace side is MASSIVE We were surprised the adults only pool did not have swim up bar but no worries as the waitress team were awesome EVA, BELKIS,ALEXANDRA and MARIA were on point they circled the pool constantly and were so cheerful and nothing was too much trouble. We normally stay at high end resorts, SANDALS BUTLER SUITES etc and quite honestly were blown away at the resort by FOOD QUALITY, SERVICE and overall resort amenities Also it is to be noted that the resort was host to many nationalities, mainly from latin America and spain. As mentioned in many reviews there is a huge problem with seaweed and they are trying their best to remove it but it’s a losing battle. Not a reflection on resort its mother nature but it really did spoil our beach time. All in all a great little 4 days break met some awesome people had a few laughs and we thought fantastic value.
