“Best Hotel and experience BY FAR in PUNTA CANA!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

I come to this hotel 3-4 times per year for a reason, its by far the best. Bavaro beach for 1 is prob the nicest beach in all of dominican republic.... bluest waters and whitest sand. The hospitality and the food at this hotel is incredible, you have several restaurants, each one offering a different style of food, all 5*. You must try the Japanese place, they cook right in front of you on a hibachi grill!!! This hotel offers everything for couples, and for families or just for when you want to get away from work ( ive gone there a few times alone just to get away from canada for a bit) You will not be dissapointed with your stay here!

This was the most beautiful place we have vacationed at. We have visited Cancun Mexico, Puerto Vallarta Mexico, and now the Dominican Republic with our stay at Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe in Punta Cana. The cleanliness and comfort was excellent, as you will read in other reviews. Sunshine and the beach are the best parts of our vacations and we thought the beach here was probably our favorite.

The beds are also very good: not too firm or too soft, very nice sheets and a few different choices for pillows. We were in room 5457 if that helps in your research (partial ocean view). We preferred the various restaurants for dinner rather than the buffets and found the food and service to be very good. We did, however, follow the advice of previous posters and make all of our reservations on the first day.

We will probably return and may consider staying in the adults only area and/or upgrading to "club premium".

Awesome! Cannot say enough positive about this resort. Loved the 'adult only' aspect as well. Cleanliness of rooms, restaurants, resort on the whole was exceptional. Friendliness and service from all employees whether bellboy, housekeeper, waiter, guest services or reception was incredible. Lots of on-site activities, yoga, water aerobics etc if that's your thing. Security guards keeping the beach area and grounds adult only were highly visible and added a sense of security. Would absolutely recommend it to others planning a trip to Punta Cana.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms have access to its own lounge chairs and large grassy areas. Ocean view rooms ta...

This was the best resort my wife and I stayed in, and we travel often. The cleanliness of the resort, room, and restaurants were amazing. The service of the employees was outstanding, they couldn't do enough for us in a most friendly way. We will be recomending this resort for a long time to our friends and family, plus we are planning to visit again soon. The nightly entertainment was a little boring at times but we had the run of other Barcelo Hotels close by that had really nice shows. The quality and assortment of the food exceeded our expectations, excellent. We have no complaints whatso ever about this resort.
On the other hand..... we flew on a Thomas Cook flight, we were not expecting much in terms of food but we were disgusted with the quality of food. They should be ashamed to even offer us that kind of food. It was stale, grey in colour and burnt from the bottom, (scrambled eggs,french toast and mashed potatoes.) On the way back, my wife had chicken with rice and veggies, which she sent back after one mouthful. I brought my own snack on board.

Room Tip: We did not have a seaview room but our room was great, quite and very spacious.
