    “Beautiful & huge resort ”

    Barcelo Bavaro Palace Hotel is a beautiful yet massive resort. The area is gorgeous and full with many activities. Here are the pro’s & con’s : Pros: - Friendly hotel - Clean (room, washroom, pools) - Huge pools, lots of beach chairs - Activities (sports (tennis, soccer), water sports included, mini putt, golf, entertainment at night, etc. Cons - Language (buffet staff doesn’t try to understand you). I spoke Italian a lot which helped me. Lobby & room staff very nice and friendly - Huge resort (not necessarily a bad thing) - A lot of seaweed at the beach ROOM: We stayed in a family duplexe room on the third floor of the 4th building. It’s not even a two minute walk to the lobby and not more than five from the buffet, pool and beach area. It’s well located even though it looks like we’re on the outside of the hotel according to the hotel map. It has two single or double bed on the first floor and a king size bed on the second floor. Two washrooms and shower, one on each floor. Nice balcony view of the golf. It’s very spacious and has a mini fridge with snacks that are included. Only disappointment was that the stairs inside the room looked like someone splash paint everywhere and that it wasn’t cleaned up and that the faucet and shower heads looked rusted. It’s clean, but they can clean a little harder (remove rust). FOOD: The buffet was alright, you can always find something. The Italian and Mexican nights were the best. Their chicken on the grill or BBQ is really good. Other than that, it’s an average buffet. Breakfast was always the same thing, but the egg station with our guys always giving us a fist pump every morning made our days. RESTAURANTS: We tried four of the many restaurants available. We had late reservation booked (passed 9 o’clock) as we were 7 in all and it was March break, but the resto are always looked empty, so we head a bit before (sometimes even an hour) and they made us pass. - The seafood was okay (fish was alright but desert was the buffet desert as they were linked). - The Santa Fa was okay too. The steak was delicious but the side orders were nothing spectacular. - Mexican was really good. The fajitas and starter was good. Our waitress was amazing too, made us have such a wonderful time. -Japanese resto was my favourite. It was a show and wonderful dining experience. Although the food was a little to salty for my taste, it still was really delicious. If you need to pick one resto, this would be the one. There was a coffee and cigar area which only opened at 4 in the afternoon which was a bummer as their coffee was actually really good (cappuccinos, iced cappuccino, and Irish coffee were my favourite). They should think of opening it sooner as the coffee at the buffet isn’t great. Lounge area (Carey) was wonderful as well. Loved their drinks. They make good amoretto sour. POOL / BEACH / BAR The pool area is big and there are many places where you can get drinks (which were mainly all good). Lots of beach chairs and Zumba lessons that make people want to have a good time. The beach area is beautiful, the only thing that bothered me was the seaweed, other than that it’s a beach beach. ACTIVITIES: The Brazilian show at the theatre is a nice experience but the rest was only okay. The dances and performances were all nice, but the sound and the lip sync takes away from it. The mini putt is actually really nice and free if you play during the day time. The pool table and arcade area is fun too (but you need to pay). All in all it’s a wonderful resort. Keep in mind it’s huge resort which includes stores, resto, bars, activities and great pool area. Once you accept that, it’s a lovely place for a mini vacation. Enjoy:)

    “Barcelo Bavaro Palace - March 2019”

    My wife and I stayed at the Barcelo Bavaro Beach (adults only) in 2016 and knew we had to come back to this facility, to Barcelo Bavaro Palace which includes family accomodations. It is an excellent, quality facility. Very clean, excellent service. It is big but well laid out so that it does not take long to get anywhere. Wide assortment of food choices and amenities for any interest.

    “Beautiful resort”

    The Barcelo Bavaro Palace is a beautiful resort. The beaches, grounds, pools are great. The resort rooms are clean and are sufficient but nothing great. I would suggest buying the premium package so you have priority on restaurant reservations or else it is very difficult to get in. The food for the most part is mediocre at best. We were with a group of 30 and all felt the same way. Wifi is not included and you have to purchase access for each phone from the resort and it is very spotty at best. I would definitely recommend the resort for the gorgeous grounds, pools, and beaches and the staff was very responsive, courteous, and all seemed very happy and friendly. Except for the food, frustration with restaurant reservations and paying for Wifi we really enjoyed our stay.

    “Loved it the 1st time....”

    Our 1st visit was wonderful with 2 restaurants that we did not love.Our 2nd trip , the food was VERY disappointing with a few cold waiters/waitresses. Not sure I'd ever go back.Steakhouse tenderloin couldnt be cut with a steak knife and everything on our plates was cold. waited so long for a beer that we ended up walking out. That was just 1 of the restaurants.

    “Family Trip”

    We went to this beautiful resort with wonderful staff, but unfortunately were unable to enjoy ourselves as my children got sick. My daughter got the the worst of it as she contracted the hand-foot-mouth virus. We were not informed that this virus was an issue in Dominican and in our resort. We travelled during the March Break
