I've been to Punta Cana 11 times now and have stayed in many resorts. I loved this place for many reasons but the lay out of the property is what I liked the best. Large resort but an enormous amount of shoreline and beautiful beach. Even though it is a family resort, there is PLENTY of room and a separate...

Thanks to Sunwing we ended up having a great holiday at this resort. We found ourselves at a horrible resort and Sunwing got us to Barcelo Bavaro Palace where the staff had us in our room within one hour of arriving. The resort is beautiful, clean and a lot of fun. They have a great beach, nightly entertainment, awesome pools,...

Enjoyed my stay, food was ok but the comfort of the room was good and the staff was great. Our group enjoyed our time together, the cleanliness throughout the resort was great. I'd tell other people about this resort if they'd ask where to stay in Punta Cana.

Bavaro Palace always exceeds my expectations... Looking forward to returning soon! I went there for my brother's wedding in 2013 and now for my friend's wedding in 2016, I am actually probably considering this location for my future wedding. The service is excellent and the employees are very friendly and caring.

We spent 2 weeks at the Barceló Bavaro Palace from November 5th to November 19th 2016. My husband upgraded us to the Premium level and we had booked a Ocean Facing room which had the best views of the sea...definitely worth the money. However the room was a little bit tired and could have done with a bit of a...

We really enjoyed our stay at Barcelo Bavaro (adults only). It is a great resort with amazing food and various restaurants and bars. The only not graet part of the facility was its shower, it is so hard to balance a warm water and the pressure was low. We really enjoyed our trip and recommend this resort strongly :D

My in-laws booked the trip and were so excited and said we would have an amazing time since they had been before. After arriving we waited in line to check in for over 2 hours. We finally...

When I brought the issue to security they came to my room and searched it. Treating my family and I like criminals instead of helping resolve the situation. Don't stay here. Bad attitudes....
