    “Very nice place”

    The resort is very nice and most of the staff is very friendly but you can tell that some of the staff just hate their life. The pool is amazing and the water is great. Didn't get much sleep due to the people above us stomping around and moving furniture all day and all night. They have a train that takes you to other parts of the resort. The food isn't the greatest if you're a picky eater, spent most of our time looking for better food, but the hot chocolate is probably the best I've ever had. The presidente beer is really good and tastes like bud light. It's hard to understand the staff because they're not very good at English. Got a massage by the pool which was amazing. We did the monkey land and dolphin explorer which I strongly recommend. We had monkeys jumping on us and eating from us and got a lot of once in a lifetime photos. We kissed and danced with a gorgeous dolphin and had it jump over us and even got a ride holding on it it's fin, once again got many once in a lifetime photos. Overall a great trip

    “Fun week at Barcelo Bavaro Beach Resort”

    Fun week. Great staff. Rooms a bit tired in building 1, but everything worked. Food was good - normal all-inclusive fare. Always something good on the buffet. A La Carts that I went to were just 'ok'.House wine not very good and wine list VERY expensive. Beach is beautiful and long enough to walk and stay on the resort.No mosquitoes or bugs.Grounds very well kept.Spa was excellent - I had a massage that was really good.

    “A Party”

    It was apparently singles week when we arrived and we would not have gone had we known. We walked into a lobby at 3pm to a smoke filled room with a bunch of drunk idiots walking around half naked. The front desk was horrible. They gave us no information and we received incorrect information in regards to the wifi (and we didn't find out the truth until the day before we left- Just so you know, it's $45/week, or you can buy it for however many days you want, the more you buy the cheaper per day rate). We were not made aware of any activities going on during the day, not that there was a lot, and there was no shade for us on the beach. The room was poorly decorated, the tv was small, the bathroom was tiny and the bathtub was grubby. The overall experience made this resort a 3 star rather than a 4.5. If you are a couple who wants to relax and enjoy the beach, with lots of activities to keep you entertained, and a shady private spot on the beach, this is not the resort for you. You want to party and meet people and be drunk and eat mediocre food in a mediocre room, congratulations this is your resort!

    “Amazing People”

    Wow! So much to write but not enough space. Didn't realize it was singles week until I was at guest services and the gentleman there asked me if I'd like to register for singles week. BEST ADVICE! I joined. Had an amazing week meeting new people. Thank you to the person in Guest Service (sorry cannot remember your name) Special thanks to the team. JUAN, JOHAN, DIONIRIS and MARTHA. If it wasn't for them the trip would not have been as great. Rain or shine they put in extra hours beyond their work time to make sure we all enjoyed. I MISS YOU GUYS This would be the first time ever that I was emotional when I left. Other staff : Not all staff at the resort spoke English. That did not stop them from finding someone who could to help me when I needed something. Very helpful Rooms: I only went there to sleep. It was clean. Building 1 will be a little noisy as the pool and theatre are close. I enjoyed it so no problem there. Food: food was great depending on what you wanted. You may need spices depending on your taste. Alcohol: always topped up! lol Adult Side of Resort: This sided needed to have a bar and food for 24 hours. It's the adult section. Why do we have to walk to the Palace for food after 11? Think some things should have been between the Adult section and the Palace. Something to consider to benefit all. As for tips.... I still tip the staff when I can. A dollar goes a LONG way!
