    “Excellent in every way!”

    This resort and it’s staff were quite excellent in every way. Just got back and am already wanting to book a return trip and will most definitely be recommending this resort to others! Would love to try the Premium upgrade. Even before you’ve started the check in, you are handed a delicious cold drink. The check in itself was a breeze. The layout of the resort itself was quite in tune with guest convenience and luxury. The rooms are quite spacious and clean. Mine was a main floor ocean view with a bistro set on the terrace and 2 sun loungers in front of it in building 6. My friend had a family emergency and ended up going home the same night but I felt completely safe staying on my own there. Met some awesome nurses and their spouses from Nebraska and an incredibly kind and awesome couple from my area which made my stay even better. The beach does have some seaweed, which they do clean but it is the ocean so there’s going to be something. The ocean is lovely! The restaurants and bars are very good as is the evening entertainment. The pool was luxurious with the loungers in the pool with a table for your drink and the water spouts which felt like a massage when you were under them. Armando was my Transat rep, he was very welcoming and informative as well. He was personable and easy to talk too. I have been to quite a few resorts and he has been the best rep by far. Very grateful for this vacation and everyone I met.

    “One week honeymoon stay.”

    My wife and I stayed at the Barcelo Bavaro Beach adults only all inclusive resort from February 8th-16th, 2019. I will start with the food. We found to have more than enough options for food at every place we ate. We had reservations at the Sante Fe Steakhouse, the Hoyo 19 and the Coral Seafood restaurants. We both had excellent luck at all three places. We also heard great things about the Chez Gourmet but didn't have time to get to that one. The only slight down fall to the three restaurants we went to was they were located at the Bavaro Palace where there are kids allowed. We didn't have any issues but some may not like that. We ate at every buffet option at the resort and again had very good luck. The variety is most impressive and we could always find something to eat. Now keep in mind these are buffets with mass produced food for a ton of people so you have to keep an open mind. The pool area. We spent about half of our time at the pool and about half of our time at the beach. The pool is very nice. We found that every day is a bit different and some days you need to be up early to reserve your chairs and other days you don't. They have a wonderful selection of full sun to partial shade to full shade options. The pool itself was always kept very clean. The wait staff was always very friendly and with a little tipping I found to never have an empty drink. Now on to the beach. The beach was absolutely amazing. The Barcelo resort has about 1 mile of beach open with a ton of chairs. We never had an issue finding open chairs and again partial shade to full sun. The beach itself was awesome. The sand is amazing and the crew works hard to keep any sea weed cleaned up on the beach. We made a point to get in the sandy waters every single day. We also enjoyed just walking the full length that the resort has to offer. Again in front of the palace there are kids so its a bit more hectic in front of that resort. The nice part about the beach is no peddlers are allowed. You don't have to worry about being heckled for any trinkets or adventures. The rooms were nice. I think the bathrooms could use a little updating but everything was kept clean. Room service wasn't consistent with cleaning times but it worked for us as we didn't pay for a vacation like this to stay in our room. Staff and bartenders. We didn't experience any issues at all with any of the staff. We always were taken care of and in a timely matter. They were all happy to help. Bartenders have a tendency to just keep you full. Which was fine by me. Overall we had an amazing experience. I like the way this resort is spread out along the beach instead of being pushed back off the beach the way a lot of the resorts are. We would definitely recommend this resort and will be scheduling a return trip ourselves.

    “Would go back...”

    We recently spent a week at this resort. I would definitely go back. Our room was a 2 min walk to the beach and we had a view of the ocean from our room at no extra charge. The food was good and i have no complaints about the service. Bavaro Beach resort was reasonably quiet and relaxing. If you wanted more noise and excitement you could walk over to Bavaro Palace where they had numerous activities. Housekeeping came in and did a good job cleaning our room no matter what time we got up. The entertainment was better than what we have seen at other resorts.The only complaint i have would be that the food in the buffet was often luke warm and it was sometimes difficult to get chairs around the pool. This it the fourth all inclusive resort I have been to and i would have to say that so far this is the only one i would return to. I would recommend this resort.

    “Amazing service”

    My wife and I had a wedding in Puerto Rico earlier in the week and decided to take a friend’s suggestion to island hop. We were recommended to come here, so glad we did. First suggestion if you don’t rent a car, get a private shuttle for the extra $20 to be taken directly to your hotel. Next, when we walked into the guest area upon arriving we were met with a big smile. Andreas was the highlight of our trip!!! He accommodated everything we needed. And when you stay by the pool near the beach, there is a young lady that made us laugh and welcomed. She walks around saying “drinkie drinks” and bartends too. Great spot for relaxing and getting away!!!!
