great place to come and unpack and not worry about anything but relaxing. don't worry about drinks, food, or whether you want the pool or the ocean. Staff is great. Tips help. Food isn't 5 star but there is a good variety. Whether you want the convenience of a buffet or you want to try different restaurant cuisine. Most restaurants merely require a reservation.

Hotel's Favorite
I have previously stayed at Barcelo Bavaro Palace in 2018 and loved my experience so I decided to come back. I will admit, I didn't know what to expect because there were so many recent negative reviews and I wasn't sure how things had changed since covid. I will say I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed my second stay here even better than my first. The food was delicious and the options were plentiful. There were also plenty of pools and beaches to spend time at! My favorite dinner restaurant was the teppanyaki! During the evenings we spent most of our time at the sports bar and casino. We booked the Jr.Suite Ocean View which included VIP access to the hydrotherapy at the spa, the seafood restaurant, and the adult's side of the resort. We were able to get covid tested the day before leaving for $25 per person and provide that before flying back to the USA. The swim-up bar was closed this time, which is understandable because of covid, but the staff did a great job making sure we were accommodated at poolside bars. I definitely recommend this place to everyone and cannot wait to go back.

My friends and I stayed at the palace for a week for my review as follows: Beach: The beach at this resort was absolutely perfect! The water was crystal clear, with no seaweed, and very calm waters. There were always plenty of beach chairs to be found. (5/5) Pool: The pools are very nice, big, and clean. However, if you are a traveler who prefers warm water, beware that the pools are not heated. There are plenty of pools chairs around the pool and lots of shade. The pool bar is WALK-UP ONLY, there is NO in pool service, and NO waiters going around the pool offering drinks. Additionally, upon check-in each guest gets 1 pool towel car, something of the last century if you as me. I take all-inclusive vacations throughout Europe and the Caribbean 2-3x per year, and I cannot even recall the last time I stayed in a resort that still uses towel cards. (3/5) Rooms: My group booked 3 Junior Suites which were all very good. Comfortable beds and pillows. Excellent water pressure in showers. Mini-bar options were good, and an amazing balcony offered views of the beach with a jacuzzi. (5/5) Restaurants; The buffets were very mediocre. Average food, often served warm, basic food options, no smoked salmon at breakfast, and not much varsity throughout the week. Avoid the Seafood ala carte restaurant. The steak house offered great main courses. The Meditteranean restaurant over at the adult's-only restaurant was absolutely perfect (I assume this is because the standards at adults-only resorts are much higher). The Italian restaurant was average, with good starters and salad bar, excellent meat dishes, however, the pasta was mediocre. The Mexican restaurant offered many great options, all of which were excellent. The Hibachi show was also good, but nothing special. (3/5) Bars: The resort offered many great drinks, especially those with their local rum. The cigar bar was excellent for enjoying a cigar with a glass of rum. Henry at the Sports Bar made wonderful drinks, but in my opinion, the absolute best drinks were made by Santo in the Casino Bar. (5/5) Entertainment: The daytime entertainment by the pool was really nice, offering various dance and Zumba activities. The night shows were all very good, and the casino was a great place to have at night. The nightclub is closed apparently due to COVID-19, but for some reason, it's ok for everyone to sit in the theater, casino, buffets maskless, but not in a nightclub. (4/5) Service: The service throughout the resort was a hit or miss; Asking for coffee at the breakfast buffet could either take 20 seconds or 20 minutes. Walking into the buffets, you have to seat yourself, unlike every other resort I have been to where the waiters would seat you. After finally finding an empty, but dirty table, I would take up to 15-20 minutes for the waiters to come up to clean and set the table, which is completely unacceptable. On one occurrence, I asked a waitress for more wine and she rolled her eyes at me. The service at the ala carte restaurants was a bit better, but not great. The service from the bars was efficient. I have been to Barcelo resorts in the Riviera Maya and in Aruba, and the service at this resort compared to others is much worse. (1/5)

In short, 6 times we rest with the whole family in this hotel. I’ll just say don’t read stupid reviews, but go on vacation, you won’t regret it! Caesar, make me an ambassador of Barcelo in Ukraine ;-) You won't regret it! The problem is that many people read stupid reviews that are not true! For 6 years of rest in this hotel, I will definitely say - the best beach in this region, a large beautiful area, good staff and customer-oriented management. And what sunrises and sunsets here! Одним словом, 6 раз отдыхали всей семьей в этом отеле. Скажу только, не читайте глупых отзывов, а езжайте в отпуск, не пожалеете! Цезарь, сделайте меня послом Barcelo в Украине ;-) Не пожалеете! Проблема в том, что многие люди читают глупые отзывы, которые не соответствуют действительности! За 6 лет отдыха в этом отеле однозначно скажу - лучший пляж в этом регионе, большая красивая территория, хороший персонал и клиентоориентированный менеджмент. А какие здесь рассветы и закаты!

We came with lot of expectations for this hotel...unfortunately we find unfriendly staff and poor services. I travelled a lot and it is for the first time I had to argue with the person at the towels to get a fresh towel while at the pool. And this is just and example. The general feeling is that the personel is bored, totally disconnected from what kindess and politness means when working in touristic services. It's a pitty for what such a facilty was supposed to provide. I am pretty sure we will not come back to this hotel and will not recommend it to anyone.
