    “Best darn bartenders!”

    We had such a good experience at the Barcelo Bávaro Beach Adults only. Juan and Marino were the best bartenders introducing us to new drinks and always knowing what we drank. They were so friendly and made our experience really nice. The whole resort was very clean and most servers were friendly. The weather was great. I loved that the rooms were close to the beach and the beach was beautiful. The evening restaurants had really good quality food. I would highly recommend this resort.

    “Not really an adult only resort.”

    The property should just combined. Because the only adult entertainment is the Casino. Even the disco was teenish. And the nighty theater entertainment was too mature for young eyes. Children should have separate nightly entertainment.

    “Great vaca”

    Nice resort - first time in the DR so i can't compare to other places but it Barcelo more than met our needs. Rooms were nice, beaches beautiful and staff great. Plenty to do or not do. Juan Figaro, bartender next to hotel lobby was great. Be sure to ask for the "Jamie Special" drink if you don't want something to sweet or sugary.

    “Beautiful, safe, restful”

    This was our 3rd stay at an all-inclusive resort. Each one was very good and unique. Barcelo Bavaro Beach-Adults Only is a very large resort with a small resort feel. Bavaro Beach is wonderful. Clean, uncrowded, and long; great for a morning walk. The resort is very big. Lots of dining options. There is security on the beach and around the resort. We felt safe. Our entire experience left us wanting more. We will definitely return there for another vacation.

    “Recommended resort”

    I don’t really have any complaints about the this resort. I attached several pictures in my review. (I also included a picture of the “church” building they had there offering Catholic mass at 6pm at sunset on Sundays for anyone interested. It was in Spanish and English.) The adult side of the resort was great and the entire resort is huge. There’s a lot to do and you definitely won’t be bored. Both areas have an entertainment/theater, there’s a golf course as well as mini golf, paddle ball, tennis courts, soccer field, kids water park, horsebacking, paddle boarding, casino, dance club, TONS of on resort shopping... BUGS: not many. An occasional bug in the room but we saw them spraying around the resort too. It was windy so I never got bit by mosquitos at night but my friend did at one of the restaurants. Although it could have been a sand flea... ROOMS: the adult side is the OLDEST part of this resort and I’ve heard the family side has newer looking rooms and probably much cleaner looking bath tubs. Ours was older looking and that’s really the only thing I wasn’t impressed about during my 1 week stay. It’s not that big of a deal because you’re not in your rooms much anyway. The shower head had great water pressure so I really like that since I have thick hair. WiFi: be fair warned, you have to pay for WiFi so that was disappointing but it works well 90% of the time. Even on the beach. BEACH: : absolutely gorgeous! Just like Cuba with turquoise coloured water and white sand. Minimal seaweed. The water was nice and was even warmer by the afternoons. There was always a breeze there so it was never too hot. The temperature was in the 80s the entire week. The morning sunrise (see picture) was beautiful! I did see a few sand fleas (if that’s what I saw) in the sand on the beach but I’m not one to sit on the sand without a blanket. I’m always in a lounger. I was never bit so that didn’t bother me. LIQUOR: not many North American options but booze is booze, just drink it and have a good time! They have Grey Goose with an extra cost but they do have Absolute vodka as an option, Corona’s are $6 USD and your room bar fridge provides 2 coors light cans with the water and pop. FOOD: no complains at all with the food!!! I travelled with 8 people and everyone enjoyed their meals. I have a sensitive stomach and certains foods bother me so I just ate the fresh chicken instead. I don’t like seafood. However, everyone else I travelled with does and they loved the fish options too. They said it was great. They also really enjoyed the lamb they had one night. La Chez had great steaks too (see attached pictures) and so did Hoya on the golf course. Overall, it was a great trip. We went during March break and the adult section was filled with sorority and frat kids so beware of that if you’re going there then.
