Our stay at Barceló Bavaro in Punta Cana was very pleasant. The place is very much what you have come to expect of these luxury resorts that have sprung up in Central America and the Caribbean within the last 10 or 15 years. You need to bear in mind that this particular complex is ENORMOUS. If it were not for...

The Barceló Bavaro Deluxe All Inclusive exceeded our expectations. It was like being in a cruise but better since it included all the food, all the drinks (including alcohol), live shows and music every night. The 8 restaurants to choose from were all outstanding.

We just visited this hotel March 10, 2015. We booked a beachfront suite and to our surprise we qualified for VIP service. The check-in was smooth enough in the private area reserved for VIPs. There was an issue with language though. Although the staff spoke some English, it was sparse and difficult for us to understand them and vice-versa. Our...

This hotel was the second place where we stayed on our trip to Dominica.
