Hotel with best beach in Punta Cana... who's got it?

What hotel has got the "best beach" overall..? Nice, clean, clear water and no signs of rocks..

I ask you this as best hotel doesn't necessarily means good beach.

Thank you.

besides that,

the best beach in PC within all AI resorts is the Bavaro beach bay, specially the 3km stretch at the Barcelo Bavaro Beach Resort.

I agree with the Fisherman. At one time many years ago, I would have rated the Barcelo Bavaro complex among the very best resorts in PC. Sadly, that is no longer the case in my opinion; however, they do have the very best beach in all of PC!

Oh, ok..

Are all Barcelos next to each other or they are spread out?

And how about the "top ones" Excellence and Majestic Colonial..?!

If you like boogie-boarding or hopping around in rough white-cap water, then the excellence is for you. If you like it more calm with better visibility and lighter colored sand for beach-front, then it's the Majestic for you.

right Funmuck,

the Barcelo Beach Resort been a top spot in case of services and for their beach, rated within the caribbeans top 10 beaches. and also agree, their services sorrily today can not hold up with their priors. that beach is THE beauty of the island sure.

olease don't get confused with the name bavaro beach, the bavaro beach area is the name for the whole stretch from that Barcelo Beach Resort Bay(at that specific bay is not other resort, only that barcelo beach resort)til up to the Riu hotels, it is a mess with names. but those sections between are very different from section to section.

the wide shallow stretch of the barcelo beach resort bay with it's pure and clear turqoise water is unbeatable.

have fun

So, the name of the Barcelo resort in question here is "Barcelo Beach Resort".. right?! It's a confusion with all those Barcelos names. Can someone send me a link for this resort just to make sure?!

Is the beach in front of the Majestic shallow or deep?

Thank you all.

we stayed at the Majestic last year and depending on how tall you are that's how deep the water is (HAHAHA) I'm short barely 5 ft, so to me the water is deep, my hubby (6ft) it was shallow. he had to venture out a bit before it got chest deep.

Elvis,

Here is the link you requested:

barcelohotels.com/BarceloHotels/en-GB/Resort…

The complex is called the Barcelo Bavaro Beach Resort and includes the following 5 distinct hotels (although two of them, the Golf and the Casino, are marketed together as one property within the complex):

Barcelo Palace

Barcelo Beach

Barcelo Caribe

Barcelo Golf

Barcelo Casino

The Barcelo Palace, Beach and Caribe are on the beach. The Casino is set back a little way from the beach and the Golf is set back a considerable distance from the beach.

One nice thing about this resort is that the beachfront hotels (Palace, Beach and Caribe) have their buildings running parallel to the beach instead of the more typical horse-shoe arrangement. As a result, everyone is much closer to the beach than what you would normally encounter with the more typical resort layout.

the IFA village is exactly on the same spot, same beach, it has even be owned/operated by Barcelo for a while.

other Barcelo resorts:

the other barcelo properties nin the area are not located aside, not on the same beach, they are named Barcelo Dominican Beach, Barcelo Cana, Barcelo Premium Punta Cana.

the IFA village did major room renovations this year, so is in good shape, the barcelo bavaro bech resort is actually doimg that, wiyj the beach hotel closed for a complete makeover, should be back open during january, then the caribe will be closed for the same full makeover.
