Barcelo Conditions?

Does anyone know anything about the condition of the Bavaro complex? My boyfriend and I and another couple have booked a trip there and I can't find any website with current updates of the condition of Punta Cana hotels. My bf and I have been there before but the other couple hasn't so I know how beautiful it is normally but it would be a shame it the beach and hotel aren't up to par. Any info would be appreciated.

My girlfriend and I are also going to Barcelo bavaro Beach hotel on November 6th.....and would also be really interested in finding out the condition of the resorts. It seems all the reviews have dried up for those resorts....since the hurriance. I only saw one from the Palace in early October and it mentioned things were closed.Anyone out there has an answer ?

I'm going to the Barcelo Bavaro resort on 30th October, and I'm going to stay there for 14 days. We are a group of 14 people, some of them are quite big golfers, others are familiy persons (including me-traveling with 18 months old son and husband). As I found out last week directly from the resort the conditions are:

-hotels that are opened: Beach and Caribe,

-restaurants are working, everything is O.k. with the swimmingpool, they've allready reopened 9 holes on golf course

-Casino is opened (not the hotel)

-dance shows are working

I will try to inform you how are the things when I'll get there. Hope I'll find an internet room and that this massage help a litlle bit.

We booked into the Bavaro Beach Resort for the 11th. We asked and were advised that there was some work still being done on the Villages but the Beach Resort was fine. But we would also like to know if anyone has direct information. We were concerned when we read on one of the forums that many of the restaurants were not open and that people were getting ill. Hopefully this situation has improved, but would like some current information if possible.

Lea, that would be great if you could give us an update when you get back! Its good to know the beach & caribe hotels are fine (we are staying at the beach). The only downer is that if not all the hotels are open we are missing out on the other dinning options....its not really pay for one play at 4 anymore then. Also could you see if the mini golf is up and running? Thats the only golfing we'll be doing or can do! And could you inform us of the condition of the beach...I heard the white sand was washed away and the water is not very clear anymore (rough water) :(

Thanks!

MASS CONFUSION !!! Today I went to pick up my tickets at the Flight Centre here in Toronto and was told that the Ocean & Caribe has been closed all month for renovations (re-opening scheduled for November) and that all guests were being upgraded to the Palace. It's very strange because when I booked 2 weeks ago, the travel agent actually picked up the phone and called someone to inquire about that status and we were told everything was open. Today, they're saying that they will find out one week prior to our departure whether we will have to get the upgrade to the Palace. I know the Palace is nicer but could care less for that if all the restaurant/bars are still closed. I've also emailed Barcelo head office looking for an update but have not received any response.

DOES ANYONE KNOW THE REAL TRUTH ??? Why has there been no postings on this site or Debbie's ?

I just wanna confirm that we can drink and eat and party and veg on the beach and have a clean room to sleep in.....and drink and drink and drink....

thanks

Well folks, I'm living in two days for Barcelo. My voucher says that I'm gonna be staying at the Caribe hotel. We shall see. I'll try to let you know how are the things there, when I get there.

About The palace- as I heard the Beach hotel is better than Palace, although Palace has more stars.

I actually don't know which hotel I'm staying at! My Vocher/reciept says both the Beach & Caribe! Seti, could you please let me know which one is nicer and maybe I'll have a say in which one! As well as a greatly needed up date on hotel/beach conditions! Thank-you so much and I hope you have a great trip!
