    “Fourth and last visit to this hotel! Every time it gets worse!”

    This is our fourth time at Barcelo hotel, third in Punta Cana,and last. Where to begin? We have never get the room we wanted and payed, not once! The worst was in Mexico, huge hotel with sectors, you book one sector, you get the other, farest one. Three changes of rooms in 10days. Here, people on reception are super slow and rude, imagine flying from completely different time zone for 15hours, with baby, and you have to wait about one hour to get your room! We booked single bed room, and of course we didnt get it. WHY do you even put option to choose room type, if every time we come, our room is gone? Then, we were told to come back next day at 12. So we leave the beach, come to reception, then they say come back at 3. At 3, after 45minutes of waiting, they gave us new room. we waisted half of day trying to change to room we booked! We asked for bottle heater,or water boiler. We gotcoffee machine that needs to proces the water to heat it. Imagine having a newborn that has to wait for couple of minutes every time he cries for food! Floors in room are always partialy wet because of the moist weather, and never get dry! Internet is robbery, you pay 50 dolars for 8 days and it can be used only by one person.Food is good, some restaurants like Seafood or steak house are not worth booking, starters and deserts are bouffe, so you still have feeling like youre in bouffe anyway..japanese is nice, italian and mexican also.still, don't count on food to be delicious, it's about the atmosphere, food is average.you need to book the restaurants first day, because they are fully booked. Also I got food poisened by muscles and spent 4 days in pain until went to doctor. In the end, instead staying for 16days here, we are changing to different hotel after 9 days.

    “Barceló Bavaro”

    The hotel was gorgeous. We loved the space of the family room. We just wished you could get that room with a view of the water. Dolce Vita staff was amazing and very proactive in bringing drinks and food without wait times. The other restaurants we had to wait long times to even be given water. For instance at La Fuente waited about 30 mins past our reservation time to be seated which was fine. Then we sat and waited about 30 more minutes at the table before a server even addressed us or gave us water. This seemed to happen to some degree at all of the restaurants except for Dolce and Kyoto which was also efficient. With that said the grounds are gorgeous and once you find your way around is great!

    “Short but sweet vacation”

    Definitely need to stay more than 4 days at this resort. They have so much to do! The service is exceptional and food is superb. The seafood restaurant can have better food, but every other restaurant does not disappoint. If you’re looking into excursions, please do THE HACIENDA, 7 excursions in one. It’s so worth it! Next time I’m coming here for a week.

    “Doesn't get any better!”

    I had honeymooned with my husband in 2012 and thought this resort was absolutely fabulous. We just returned from a family trip last week and once again was amazed by how beautiful this Resort is. We stayed in a junior Oceanfront Suites and were Premier level and I wouldn't have changed a thing. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The room is packed with every single thing you could possibly need except for your clothes. The room was so spacious and so beautiful the way they decorated was amazing and the bonus of having the jacuzzi on the balcony overlooking the ocean was to die for. The multiple restaurants are delicious and the decor and just the look of them are beyond beautiful. The ocean is gorgeous the views are amazing from the room and pretty much from every single place that you are if you're outside or facing the ocean from inside you can see views from miles as well. The artwork and statues that are around the hotel as you walk the grounds are beautiful. The buffets were out of this world so many delicious choices that change everyday, so many fresh fruits vegetables hot meals cold meals dessert trays for miles if you like to eat like I do, you are going to be blown away. The many bars that they had were great the staff was quick and friendly they would make any kind of drink that you asked for there were so many choices to choose from it was unbelievable. I have been to other resorts in that area and this is by far the best resort you will find not only for your money but to enjoy your vacation whether it's with a couple or a family you cannot go wrong with this Resort. If I could give it 10 Stars I would. We will definitely be back next year.
