Excellent swimming pools
The beach is the quintessential holiday destination where the possibilities for entertainment and relaxation are infinite. Choosing a beach resort of the Barceló Hotel Group means choosing the best service, the most comfortable accommodation and the world’s greatest beaches. All in the same place. Whether in the Caribbean, the Pacific or in other paradise destinations such as the Aegean Sea, the Mediterranean or the Andalusian Coast of Spain, travellers can find everything they wish for in any of the hotels and grand beach resorts.
Tourists that wish to spend as much time as possible by the sea must consider Punta Cana, in the Dominican Republic. The Barceló Bávaro Grand Resort is located next to the famous Bávaro Beach. It includes three hotels, all within easy reach of the spectacular shoreline. Three kilometres of sand and crystal clear waters dotted with swaying palms and sun loungers will satisfy the most discerning beach lovers. And those who prefer a change of pace may plunge into one of the pools or visit the new Pirate Island water park.
In Mexico you can find the Barceló Maya Grand Resort, which has splendid views of the beaches of the Caribbean coast. Sunbathe, swim and go for walks on the white sands bathed by the waves – these are just some of the activities you can enjoy during the day. At night, the fun continues in a restaurant by the beach, from where you can gaze at the stars while sitting by the sea. Also, the exciting night life includes theatres, a nightclub and themed bars.
The spectacular beaches in Varadero, Cuba, a 20-kilometre paradise of fine sand and turquoise coloured waves, are a natural gem worth considering when choosing a beach hotel in the Caribbean. The Barceló Arenas Blancas Resort is located in Playa Azul, Varadero. This tourist complex has three free-form pools (one with its own tropical island) and a large variety of culinary options. Guests love Cuban specialities. At nightfall, music and dance are the stars, providing happiness and the typically Cuban rhythm.
In Costa Rica, travellers are never far from a nature reserve or park teeming with wildlife such as monkeys, scarlet macaws and ocelots. The Occidental Tamarindo is located on Langosta Beach on the northwest coast. Very close by there is a marine reserve for leatherback sea turtles. The white sand and perfect waves to surf set against a breath-taking backdrop of lush forest mean this resort satisfies beach lovers and nature enthusiasts alike.
Those who want to enjoy the beach as well as the local culture should book a stay on the sunny coast of Greece. The Barceló Hydra Beach has rooms and bungalows with views to the Aegean Sea and access to three idyllic beaches. Situated southwest of Athens on the Peloponnese peninsula, this resort shows travellers an image of Greece they have always dreamt of: rocky mountains, brightly coloured flowers and buildings with columns that remind us of Ancient Greece, the birthplace of philosophy, theatre and art.
