    “Premium is worth it!”

    My wife and I just got back from staying a week in at the Barcelo Bavaro Palace. We wanted to stay in an ocean front suite so we could sit on the deck and look at the beautiful ocean. We were given an upgrade of private transportation from the airport to the resort and then back to the airport following our visit. This was a great upgrade as we did not have to stop at any other resorts. In 15 minutes we were at our destination! When we arrived at the resort, we were immediately helped with our luggage and directed to the premium lounge to check in. There was food and drink in the lounge and it was a comfortable atmosphere to get checked in. After a quick check-in, we were shown to our room, 5301. This was in building 5 (first building to the right of the main building as you look at the ocean), floor 3 (we requested floor 2 or higher), room 1(end room with an additional balcony off the side of the bedroom). Building 5 is behind the adult only swimming pool so it is further away from the ocean, but we still had great views. Waiting for us in our room was a bottle of Barcelo rum, a smaller bottle of rum and a bottle of mamajuana. In addition, the refrigerator was well stocked and there were snacks also. The room was very nice. We had a king bed which was very comfortable, two full baths, a living room, two TVs, a huge oceanfront deck with a hot tub, table and chairs and two loungers. The room was perfect. Being a premium guest, we were able to make dinner reservations before we arrived. The earliest dinner time was 6:30 and we were able to get 7 reservations at different restaurants for our stay. In talking with other guests, they had a difficult time making reservations at decent times if they were not premium members. There are two huge buffets on the resort. We ate there once, the food was good and there was a lot of variety, but it is a mass of people and it can be a madhouse at times. People we talked to that ate there everyday talked about getting tired of eating the same thing every day. The reason we ate at the buffet only once was because as a premium guest, we had the opportunity to eat breakfast and lunch at the Coral restaurant. There would be maybe 20 other people in this restaurant and the food was excellent! It was a very relaxing atmosphere. After breakfast, we would spend time in the beach. The beach is very nice but they have a sea grass problem. They work hard in the morning and early afternoon to remove the grass, but it comes in about as fast as they can remove it. After lunch, we would go down to the lap pool to relax. Chairs were usually all occupied or saved, so I would go down to the beach and bring a couple up to the pool. I never had to wait over a minute to get my drinks at the bars around the pool. Later afternoon, we would go get ready for dinner. We enjoyed each of our dinners at the restaurants. Good quality and nice variety! After dinner we would do a little shopping in the stores at the resort then go back to the room and relax. We had a great time and would like to return!

    “Golf vaction”

    This holiday was all about the golf which was so fun with the course interesting and in great condition and a staff who were very helpful. The premium level gave us the choice to have breakfast and lunch in a quieter setting at the Coral buffet where the service was outstanding. Special mention to Rossario Guerrero who went out of her way to locate my missing IPad and to Felix Monito who served up extraordinary omelets will such a happy demeanour that it made you feel happy at the start of the day. Landry has the biggest smile in the room and is a pleasure to see. The beach is great and water is smooth and easy for swimming. All good!

    “Dec 2-9 2018 Premium Level Barcelo Bavaro Palace”

    This was our second visit to Barcelo Palace and we loved it as much as the first time and we will go back again.The service is perfect. I even forgot my medications and the staff in the premium room had my medication delivered to the hotel before my husband had a chance to return from our room with the money to pay for it. The grounds were extremely well kept. The food was more like 4* this time, side plates were warm, not hot at La Comedie and La Fuente restaurants. The buffet breakfast and lunch at Coral Restaurant is delicious with so many choices! For those concerned about zika, I do have 5 mosquito bites. We did find a few parts of the building were in poor maintenance, as if they did not yet have time to prepare for the busy season. The light bulb near our door was burned out, but a call to the premium room had that corrected in less than an hour. Our door locking mechanism prevented us from entering, we told a maid, she had staff meet us there within moments and the problem was resolved immediately. Due to high winds there was a lot of seaweed washed up onto the beach every day but by noon the grounds keepers had cleaned that up and carted it away. The entertainment has stepped things up a notch since April 2018. We found the evening performances outstanding and the daytime beach and pool entertainment seemed far superior as well. The internet service with Premium level works well. We like that this is close to the airport but you are not bothered by airport noise. We did find that there were some smokers in common areas but it wasn't too offensive. I would be happier if it were no-smoking. All in all we had a marvelous time and felt spoiled the entire time. We bring our own pillows as we do not really like the fluffy pillows. I would prefer a higher quality bed, both times I found the bed very hard and unforgiving. We love it at Barcelo Bavarao Palace.

    “Worth it. ”

    Just having a beach front room makes it worth it. The other extra, breakfast at the Premium Level Lobby was excellent. The food is good, maybe not as many options as at the buffets but avoiding the crowds made it for me.
