We recently returned from our trip to the Barcelo Punta Cana. We stayed there for 2 weeks and had a wonderful time. The beach is very nice, clean and well taken care of. Their pools were also nice. There were jacuzzis there, but not heated and didn't look very clean...needlesss to say we didn't use them. We stayed in room 3323. The room was okay...it had hot water and a comfortable bed. We didn't have an alarm clock which made it hard to know what time it was...constantly trying to phone the front desk, or search for a channel with the time. There were a few little bugs in our bathroom, but nothing outrageous. Our biggest complaint of the room was the location as it was above the main buffet and all day and most of the night all you can hear is the clanking of plates and cutlery...we got wise to it and started putting towels around the top and bottom of the door to block the noise (several rooms around us did the same).
One of the biggest issues is the lack of English speaking people in the main areas (front desk/internet cafe)...check in seemed to take forever.
We thought that the food was okay...the A-La-Carte resteraunts were delicious and whenever we went early for our reservation they seated us and treated us wonderfully.
The entertainment staff were also great. ALDO, SANDY and MICKEY MOUSE were wonderful people and even knew our names only a couple days in.
We would go back to this hotel in a couple of years...hopefully the small issues would be fixed by then.
