    “Amazing customer service”

    We were at Barcelo Babaro Beach for 7 days for the second time. Everything was excellent as usual from the customer service, the activities, the food and especially the beach. Melissa at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. She was always answering our questions with professionalism and a big smile. Thank you Melissa for your excellent customer service and for making our vacation enjoyable. We will definitely go back to Barcelo next year.

    “We Had a Wonderful Vacation at This Resort!”

    This is the 2nd time my husband and I have stayed at Barcelo Bavaro. The first was at Barcelo Bavaro Palace with our children and this time at Barcelo Bavaro Beach by ourselves. We loved it when we were here with our children so we returned. Again we were not disappointed by the vast, beautiful beaches and exceptionally beautiful grounds. The landscaping details, lighting and buildings offer a real beach paradise. The food at Caribe and La Brisa buffets for breakfast and lunch were very good. The best part about those 2 restaurants are their open design and proximity to the beach. It was so lovely to eat breakfast and lunch looking over the beach. It is not the best food I've ever had but there is a really good variety and the local dishes especially were really delicious. The a la carte restaurants were excellent! We ate at a different restaurant every night and every meal was wonderful. Having access to the spa as part of the premium package was a huge bonus and we used the steam room, sauna, cold pool/hot tub every day. There are only 2 negatives I will offer. One is that the rooms in the adult only section are very much in need of a renovation. They are clean (except the white curtains are pretty dirty) but the furniture is old and worn and it feels like one step above a motel room. Honestly, we didn't really care because we had a deck that overlooked the ocean and the view was perfect. The other is that is very difficult to find any shade. On the beach the only options are the palm trees which offer limited shade. By the pool, the canopies have so many gaps that the sun shines through so they also don't offer much shade. We made it work but it would be nice if they had some sort of shade cover on the beach and if the canopies around the pool had a solid roof material. Having said all this we really love this resort and would return.

    “Excellant hotel but....”

    Visited this hotel early February for a long overdue break. My husband is disabled and naturally accessible facilities are paramount for a successful trip. Having researched Punta Cana hotels, the Barcelona Bavaro beach provided all the facilities my husband required. We checked in tired from our long journey but were not offered a refreshing drink or hot towel as advertised. Our room was adequate with an accessible wet room. The room was large enough to enable my husband to negotiate his wheelchair with ease. The only downside was the toilet height was too low, as were all the accessible toilets throughout the resort. We only used the buffet restaurant for breakfast and light lunches, where the food was varied and typical of these large resorts. As for the a la carte restaurants the ones at the sister hotel, Bavaro Palace were dreadful. Especially the steak house, where the food was cold and inedible. The two a la Cartes in the Bavaro Beach were far better.La Brisa in the evening provided good service and a good menu. Chez Gourmet had an excellent menu and food and service were usually very very good. As is often the case, the staff make this hotel. That is apart from customer service staff. There was a fault with one of the accessible toilets throughout or stay, with water leaking through the roof. Having reported this on five separate occasions the fault was not repaired, nor the toilet closed. This is an accident waiting to happen given that the facility is specifically for disabled patrons. My other niggle is the lack of WiFi. This is only freely available in the casino unless one is prepared to pay. I have never had to pay for WiFi in ANY hotel, this is simply a money spinner. That being said, the general facilities were good, clean and the magnificent beach is to die for. Did we enjoy our holiday? Yes, we had a great time. Would we return to Bavaro Barcelona beach? No, for the above reasons.

    “Barcelo Bavaro Beach and Palace Bavaro”

    We visited from the 16th-23rd of February 2020, we really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is beautiful and clean, the beach was fantastic, lots of beach chairs, no need to reserve. We upgraded to Premium Level which included ocean view rooms with balconies. The food in all restaurants and buffets was excellent, just a side note for beef eaters, if you usually order your steak medium rare, order it medium at the Steakhouse, my daughter’s steak came rare. Beautiful, huge complex with all you need, including, shopping, golf, bowling, cigar shops, you name it. The only downside that we found was the booze. Mostly no name brands, no higher quality brands. Only one beer selection unless you want to pay an extra $6.00 per beer. We thought the Premium upgrade would have allowed for better quality alcohol. The red house wine is really not great, we ordered bottles at the specialty restaurants. Staff and workers were very friendly, security was very good, all around the premises. All being said I would stay there again and I highly recommend it. The golf course was amazing, Pete Dye design, I played one round which was included with my stay, they charge $75.00 for the cart and I rented clubs for $35.00. Beer & water are included and food at the club house was also included if you’re staying on site. Thank you Bavaro Beach and Palace for a wonderful vacation.

    “Great Resort, great food at La Comedie”

    We stayed at the Barcelo Bavaro Beach Resort for business and had dinner at the French Restaurant La Comedie. Billy “Hollywood” Levons was our main host. He and the entire staff took care of us like we were family! The food was excellent and the service was beyond compare. Would definitely recommend everyone dine here if they have the chance to stay at this awesome resort. I have been here several times and never disappointed at how the entire resort staff excels at their jobs. Thank you Barcelo Bavaro For taking such good care of us and thank you Billy and everyone at La Comedie for the wonderful experience! We’ll definitely be back!
