    “Good enough, not perfect”

    Barcelo Beach Adults Only was perfect for what we wanted: 4 days on the beach, healthy food, a good gym and a spa. It's not top of the line but good enough in almost every way. It's beautiful and clean and never felt crowded and there was no loud music blasting. Seaweed on the beach but not a problem. Service was good. Most of the staff were friendly and none were rude. There's one buffet for breakfast and lunch and I thought it was good. You could also go there for dinner. The spa decor was beautiful. Massage was good. Basic facial was beyond basic, way overpriced. The best advice I got was: Book reservations for restaurants when you check in. We did this and had no problems. Bring an insulated water bottle unless you want all drinks in little plastic cups. Bring lots of singles for tipping. I never felt it was expected or even noticed but lots of people were tipping so seems to be the norm. Bring bug spray. Most irritating: People put their orange towels on pool chairs all day long so it's sometimes hard to find a chair. Most disappointing: Our room was "superior sun deck". It was big and clean but not superior in any way. We were in building 4, ground floor and our room opened on to a lawn facing the wall that borders the property. There was construction on the other side of the wall making it noisy during the day but we were not in the room much and even when we were, we could not keep door open due to mosquitoes. We kept the room thinking it would be quiet at night and it was indeed. Not much to the mini bar: tiny bags of peanuts, nacho chips, Coors beer, soda and juice boxes. We went to 3 restaurants and food was similar. Entrees were often overcooked. We did not try any of the restaurants that required an up charge. Best kept secrets: peacocks in the park around the convention center; the sun deck on top of the spa/gym; the adult only pool on the far side of the palace; apples at the desk at the spa. Read lots of reviews, you will know what to expect and won't be disappointed.

    “First Time in Punta Cana”

    My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time at the Adults Only resort! It was beautiful, clean, and much more quiet than the Palace side. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool, the nightly shows, and the wonderful meals. There are only 3 restaurants on the Adults Only property, and we tried others at the Palace, but we found ourselves at Chez Gourmet the most; simply delicious. Make your reservations when you arrive! We also took advantage of the beach (which was obviously beautiful), but in July, there was an influx of Sargassum seaweed that forced us to utilize the pool more. Also, our room was right at the end of the property where a lot of the boating excursions leave from, so it was loud at times. Overall, we had an amazing experience and would recommend it to anyone!

    “Superb Service”

    We just concluded a family & friends vacation (four of us) in the Premium Level Seafront section of this hotel (a third-time return visit). I rarely write reviews, but I am writing this one to specifically mention the extraordinary service provided by members of staff who have made our stay memorable. Due to some external factors two of us had to cancel our reservations the day before our flight to Punta Cana. A few days later, when these factors disappeared and we were ready to fly and join the other two who were already at the hotel, we were able to make new reservations and obtain again the same type of rooms thanks to the help of Laudy Mota in Central Reservations and Mabel Geronimo the Manager of the Premium Level. Mabel is a calm and efficient Manager, always smiling, who makes sure in the smoothest way possible that the guests enjoy their stay at the fullest. Her professional attitude is commendable and memorable. Thanks to her and her Premium Level team (Kitti, Dianny, and two others whose names unfortunately I cannot remember) every day of our stay we were made to feel welcomed and well looked after. I should also mention that Carla Correa of the Departamento Cobros of the hotel helped in the coordination of the accounts, and Carmen Moni kept our rooms impeccable. All in all, superb service. We will return again next year.

    “This is review about my experience with Borcelo Bovara Beach resort.”

    My wife and I like this place and we are going to be there next year. Also we are going to recommend this place to all our good friends. We would like to see more different sea food at the evening buffets and more food to choose in Premier Level cafe.
