    “Relaxation at its best !!”

    Just got home from my third time here. First time was my honeymoon and enjoyed it so much we keep going back. Accommodations are excellent. Staff is super friendly and helpful. There are many a la carts and buffets to choose your meals from with a wide variety of food. Beach and pools are both well maintained. Casino and sports ( golf, tennis, basketball, bowling ) are available on site. There are entertainment shows nightly. So much to do - definitely a trip worth taking...

    “Would go back in a flash !”

    We booked a basic room in adults only section and thought it was clean and well maintained. Room we got faced the beach which was a huge plus! Most staff were great although sometimes a language barrier. Be patient and remember to tip ( goes a long way) for good service. We have stayed at many resorts in the Dominican Republic and have noticed that there are more Europeans that choose this resort than the others. Kind of fun to try and communicate - so many different cultures. We learn so much putting forth little effort. Variety of food is excellent and quality is good. Out of all the Caribbean trips I have been on I would say this beach is the BEST !!! If you love the beach you picked a great resort !! Pool can be cold but its awesome also. Big plus is this resort is closer to the airport than most, so it doesn't take long to get there. My wife and I always look for the best deal in Punta Cana and if the price is right we will not hesitate to book here again.

    “Paradise!”

    Very accommodating all around! The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The food was excellent, with many choices. There were so many places to eat, you never get bored with the same thing everyday. Being able to take the resorts cute train over to the palace for more diverse meals and entertainment makes this resort excellent as well.The rooms were very nice and comfortable, ours had a nice patio with hot tub. Literally no complaints! We will be back! Highly Recommend!

    “Bait and switch!”

    My and my wife got married at this resort. The good: the location was great. The service at the was good. The the beach was beautiful. The pools were clean. The resort itself was very clear and well kept. Now here's where me and 17 others in our group were let down and felt like the resort managment played a big bait and switch. The bad: when you read about all the great Buffets and and several ela cart restaurants that are ALL INCLUSIVE you think that you well eat like kings and Queens! Not the case. The Buffets are a huge. There's very big variety to select form. Unfortunately the fruit wasn't always ripe. The most popular items were almost always gone and you had to wait for them to get restocked. Most dishes were very bland! Golden Corral would be a 5 star buffet compared to this! Here was the biggest bait and switch that we experienced. When you wanted to get reservations in a ela cart restaurant you needed to make reservations sometimes 2 days in advance! The big kicker was you could walk by those restaurants and they were almost always less then 50%. One night we wanted to go to the Japanese restaurant and we attempted to get reservations at noon for later that night. They told us the only opening was at 930 pm. We happened to walk by that restaurant at 630 pm the same day we wanted reservations and they only had 2 tables out of 20 table in use! So this is were they get you! Also include in your stay if free greens fee for a beautiful golf course! Sounds great right? Well just wait until you HAVE TO RENT A CART FOR $75 PERSON! BUY 3 GOLF BALLS FOR $10 RENT CLUBS FOR $50. NOT REALLY A GOOD DEAL! In conclusion it was a beautiful place and the staff was very accommodating and friendly! But the bait and switch is very disappointing! I will not even consider going back after this experience. I will stay anywhere else in the D.R. just not at the barcelo bavaro!

    “Honeymoon in paradise”

    We just got back from our honeymoon at Barcelo Beach. It was an amazing few days with perfect weather and wonderful service. I highly recommend PREMIUM level. Many nice perks including room service food included, which was actually very fresh and delicious. Sun deck room was great and allowed us to lounge right outside our room.HIGHLY recommend Chez gourmet and Kyoto. Excellent food and excellent service. Also the premium level breakfast at Coral was wonderful.Room service stopped by twice per day!Quiet beach away from the kiddos. I read that there was a language barrier, and yes Spanish is the local language. Why you would expect them to be fluent in other languages is beyond me. We had no problem getting our point across. People come from all over the world so to expect all the staff to speak all languages fluently is absolutely ridiculous. Learn some basic Spanish and just be polite!Staff was always friendly and willing to help! Will definitely come again!
