    “13 year Anniversary to Punta Cana”

    Wonderful hotel experience at Barceló Bávaro Beach. Jesus Peguero from guest services was so helpful setting up our events. He also sang to us while we waited for the phone to be answered. Daniel from the front desk was wonderful getting us checked in. Jose helped get us set up to our room and helped with our bags. These gentlemen were all wonderful in customer realations. We appreciate all their help. Thank you for making our Anniversary special.

    “Relax with cubalibre”

    Very good resort, a small citadel if you consider also the adjacent Bavaro Palace. Nothing to say about food and drink choice, room tidiness, staff organization, animation guys etc. Everything well organized and maintained. Many reviews before have described the resort, so I try here with my personal tips/suggestions for future guests and as well some remarks for the Barcelo' staff to improve in some aspects (hope it will be appreciated). If you book directly via My Barcelo' you have free internet (or else you need to pay a fee), possibility of room upgrade and late check out and as well a voucher (5% value of the cost of your stay) to spend for hotel services. A remark for the reception staff, it looks like there is a little confusion about the voucher. When I checked in nobody told me about it, I need to specify it the day after and they need to double check before to confirm it. Anyway it was not really clear for what the voucher could be used. You can use it for the restaurants not included in the all inclusive (like the Japanese one) or for the spa. But you cannot use for the excursions or for the gift shop. Actually I was not able to redeem my voucher since when I checked out, they told me I had to pay cash the bill for the shopping at the gift shop charged on my room. It was not possible to use the voucher for shopping. So it would not be bad to clearly state what it is possible to buy and what not with the voucher. Restaurant tip...I loved having lunch at La Briza restaurant near the beach, you can use it instead of the main buffet one. There is less food choice, but the view and the sensation to have a table in front of the ocean is definitely worth. General tip...if you need to change in US dollars you need to go at the casino, at the reception they only change in pesos. Finally some words on the seaweeds issue. This is a big problem which cannot be afforded only by the hotel. I do not understand why at higher level, like regional or State authorities, they do nothing to clean the beaches. I would have definitely charged myself of an additional daily tax, if someone had cleaned the beach each morning. I leave the Barcelo' people to pass my message at higher level...this is potentially an issue which could affect the whole economy of Punta Cana region, so some action needs to be taken.

    “Very disappointing food/drinks”

    We stayed at the Barcelo Bávaro Adults Only Resort and the pros in my oppionion were the atmosphere, pools, activities, and overall relaxing vibe. We did all inclusive and were most disappointed with the food and drinks. I was expecting decent quality, kind of like a cruise, but it was worse. There was a wide selection at the buffet but the quality was really bad. It seemed like everything was either sitting in watery juice or sitting in butter for hours. I honestly couldn’t tell you one thing I felt was actually good. Even at the restaurants, the few times I did ask for modifications they couldn’t understand me. The drinks were not good either. I love piña colades and they had machines with piñas and daqueries but somehow everything was so watery and not cold. They only have one beer (Presidente) which seemed watered down too because I drank it all day long one day and felt no buzz at all (I don’t even drink often). All wine was extra except a house wine, which again was watered down and really bad. The waiter even told us that it was bad. It really frustrates me because it seemed like the only way you could get a decent drink was to pay more for the higher quality liquor and also tip the staff more. I just felt that that defeated the “all inclusive” purpose. Although the resort itself is beautiful and fun, the food and drink situation really put a big damper on the trip. We lived off of French fries and Diet Coke..... I was also disappointed in the lack of recycling. Every drink comes in a flimsy plastic cup with a straw and the pools and beaches are littered with them. All water was bottled, which I get and appreciated the clean water. But if you’re serving so much plastic at least put more recycling areas out. I only saw maybe 2 on the beach. None at the pool or in rooms or walkways. :( Overall, if they stepped up their food and drink game then this place would be worth it.
