I have never been one to take these reviews seriously and I wish I did. I decided to take the reviews with a grain of salt and booked a trip. We thought that being rated a 4 star and 4.5 with noli tours it had to be decent.
All I can say is ever negative review is correct. First of the entrance is unimpressive not to mention the entire lobby smells of smoke. I couldn't even stand to sit anywhere with my kids cause it smelled so bad!!!!! The rooms are musty,old with zero water!!!!! We couldnt even shower the first nigth cause there was no water NADA!!!!
Our door did not lock properly and my husband could open it by pushing hard on the door. The lock was all carved out. The up graded rooms r far from an upgrade. They showed us one that was clean and I notice peanuts on the floor!!! Disgusting!!! Basically you got a flat screen tv over a tv from the 80's. the walls are super thin. The hot tub was cold. No towels for the pool for an entire day!!!! Only 2 body towels in our room. There was a line up to get into the buffet then u would litterally line up in the pasta line for over half hour!!! It's over crowded. I could really go on for ages.
We ended up leaving 2 days later and stayed at the barcelo bavaro delux palace which was absolutely beautiful. Fantastic family resort and we would go back again.
Whoever stumbles upon my review please take this review seriously and do not book the barcelo punta cana. Save up and spend the extra money!!!!!! Trust me to even spend what we did the thought of staying there for the entire week would not have been a vacation! The staff were sweet not their fault they are working at a s&$) hole!!! They worked very hard and tried to please many unhappy guests. We all save up for this one week of paradise so make it worth it and do your homework!! Good luck
