Me and boyfriend decided to do a couples vacation and this was the perfect resort. On arrival they immediately helped us with our bags and check in was really easy and fast. The food was amazing, and everyone was so helpful and nice. The staff there were very attentive and made you feel very welcomed. The restaurants on the resort were amazing, but I really recommend the Italian restaurant. They also have a store for miscellaneous things such as souvenirs and personal hygiene items which I found very helpful. The drinks were amazing and the staff at the casino were very fun and they will also make fun drinks for you if your not sure what to drink . Every time I came back to the room everything was nice and organized and they also put fresh bottles of water for you in the room everyday. The buffet was amazing they really have something for everyone, we stayed here for 6 nights and those were the best 6 nights. There is nothing to complain about with this resort the staff always took care of everything. The room was perfect we had an ocean view which was so beautiful every morning. If you are a morning person I recommend watching the sunrise at this resort as it is really a sight to see. There were also water sports which you can do on the resort, for example we went kayaking which was really fun. The pool was amazing and the bar in the pool was also very nice. The bartenders worked at a fast pace. Everything was perfect, me and my boyfriend really enjoyed this stay and will definitely be going back again. I definitely recommend this resort and would rate it a 10/10.

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.

This was our second time in this property and it was another memorable trip. The staff is the BEST and most caring and attentive staff I have ever seen. Orestes Almaguer, Room Manager in building 6, was the most attentive of them all. Every time we walked by his post, there wasn’t one time he did not interact with us and ask to make sure all was well, we saw him do this on multiple occasions. For dinner, the steakhouse was our absolute favorite- a MUST when you are there; from the staff to the food, it was perfection! The shore excursions desk was great too- we were a party of 9, we were really looking forward to La Hacienda, excursion and the young man was made the reservation for us was able to get us in the trip for the very next day! The staff in the dining area/buffet was great! The restrooms in that area were ALWAYS clean! The attendants inside clean-up after every person that uses the restroom. The bartenders over at the adults only pool are the BEST!!!!! All staff encountered was always of the uPmost professionalism, well-mannered and caring. All in all, I would highly recommend and would return for a third time.

The resort is beautiful but the food was horrible. I’m not saying horrible as in one place I mean multiple places in the resort The food was disgusting and I’m not a picky person at all. They leave the food out way too long and everyone in our party of 22 people got sick at some point. We have been to the Dominican Republic five times and this was the worst trip by far. The staff isn’t very friendly either. One of our friends was told to go get her own drinks at one of the buffets in the morning. We will never return there ever

We took a family trip here and had a fabulous time!!! Our kids are 3, 5 and 8. They loved the Barcy Club for kids and wanted to go to the Barcy as soon as they woke up every morning 😂 They had fun activities for them and we were able to get a break to go to the spa for a couples massage, adult pool, and have a relaxing drink kid free! They also have a sitter service for evening time that we used and it was a reliable and safe option. We hired a sitter for two nights and her name was Iva. Our kids LOVED Iva!!! She did a phenomenal taking great care of them and entertaining them while we went to dinner. Drinks at Barcelo were great and we had no complaints there. The buffet was awful (biggest complaint). We had a better experience getting breakfast and lunch at strikers sports bar and the Hoyo 19. Dinner options were much better than the buffet! Our favorite restaurants for dinner La Brisa (adults only), Kyoto Japanese steakhouse (kids favorite), and Mexico Lindo. Didn’t eat at Dolce Vita because kids were too tired but I think it would have been good. Overall experience for an all inclusive resort with our kids ages- we give Barcelo a 5/5!!!
