    “Great resort, great experience!”

    My husband and I stayed at the Barcelo Bavaro Beach Resort in April 2019. We had a wonderful experience and enjoyed ourselves a lot! A couple things to highlight: Since we were celebrating our anniversary, the resort was kind enough to welcome us with a room with a great view, chocolates, continental breakfast and a bottle of rum (at no extra cost). It was very much appreciated. Check-in was delayed by half an hour or so, but we were prepared for it after reading the reviews online, and we just went with the flow. We enquired about upgrading to premium service but we were informed that there were no rooms available. They did offer us a package of “premium services” minus the room, but it wasn’t worth it at an extra $40 USD/day. GROUNDS/BEACH: The resort grounds are amazing. Clean, and well-kept. We were in awe with the palm trees and views every day. It’s great that the palm trees provide shade at the beach, as there is no need for huts and umbrellas. There were always ample chairs on the beach, so there was no need to get there early to snatch a lounger. The white sand and ocean combination is beautiful - there is seaweed both on the sand and in the water, but the ground workers are out there on a daily basis trying to do some clean-up. Note: You will find other people (locals/people from other resorts) at the beach, including kids (locals were only there on the weekend). There were life guards and security guards patrolling the area but they never asked any of them to leave. Not sure if this is common across all resorts on Bavaro Beach - but something to note. We did go over the Easter long weekend, which may have been why it was extra busy on Saturday. FOOD: The food at Barcelo Bavaro Beach was really good. We ate at the Main Buffet for Breakfast and Dinner, and normally had lunch at La Brisa. The pastas, pizzas, and omelettes were always tasty and filling. Shoutout to Camanō for making wonderful pasta, and Alexis for his crepes every night. We tried two a la carte restaurants (La Brisa and Chez Gourmet), but preferred the food at the Buffet as the options for vegetarians were limited. ROOM: My favourite part of the room had to be the stunning views - we could see both the ocean and the swimming pool (we were in the mid 2000’s). It was great to sit out in the balcony and hear the entertainment at night (Note: If you’re an early sleeper, you probably would not prefer this as it is quite loud even at 11:00pm) The room was tidied on a daily basis, and we didn’t have any problem with house-keeping. The one downside of the room had to be the washroom. The toilets flush was terrible and shower pressure was OK. SERVICE/ENTERTAINMENT: We were happy with the service we received at Barcelo Bavaro Beach. The workers were always kind, happy to entertain or offer a hand. We really enjoyed the beach volleyball games, and morning aerobics session. They had different entertainment every night as well including Karaoke night, Michael Jackson Show etc. The waiters in the buffets were always quick to offer water and drinks, and we never had trouble finding a table for two when it came to meals. COSTS: You will be required to pay $45.00 per person for WiFi, if you would like to have access at the resort. There is FREE WIFI at the Casino. However, this is at the Barcelo Bavaro Palace and is not convenient for Barcelo Bavaro Beach guests. It would be great if the resort could include WiFi for their guests as this is important to some people, like us. The WiFi connection was pretty decent overall. There is an entry and exit fee in/out of Punta Cana, which totals to $30 USD per person. Excursions can be booked at the Guest Services Centre with your representative. Just be cautious about the price they tell you because they may try to rip you off. We did the horse back riding excursion (2 hours) and loved the experience. They do tell you that the excursion will be about 2 hours with 20 minutes each way, but it ends up being about 6 hours as you pick up other people from other resorts before getting to the ranch. Overall, we had a great time at the Barcelo Bavaro Beach, and we hope to be back soon!!

    “Wonderful place! Tons to do!”

    We went here for our honeymoon. What a great place! Staff is very friendly, the food is good, entertainment is good and it seemed like there was always something to do! Our only issue was the shower if you took a shower when a lot of people were you couldn't get any pressure you'd have to take a bath instead. but everything else was absolutely perfect!
