    “Spoiled in the DR”

    To get the best service in this hotel, I recommend buying the premier package with a room directly on the beach. It allows a more comfortable check in, access to more restaurants and services, discounts on services and a special room just for premier customers equipped with helpful staff, Champaign and snacks.

    “Great Resort and Great Services”

    This was my first time in Punta Cana. I didn't know what to expect. I must say that it was AWESOME the resort is huge, a lot of activities, super fun and service is great. A lot of options to go dinner and all of them are great! specially the "a la carte" services at dinner time.

    “Family Vacation Review”

    This is a really great hotel - spacious and spread out nicely. Our family with 19 year old boys had a great time. Water sports were great, food was average/good. Hotel rooms were nice, cool and clean. Dinner reservations are TERRIBLE - they had limited seatings when we arrived and we couldn't make reservations for the times we wanted. This was incredibly frustrating for all-inclusive, we didn't pay for buffet every night. This was also VERY TIME CONSUMING. Guest services was always busy and a very long wait. The last thing I want on vacation is to argue about booking dinner. Reservations put a big damper on dinner daily. There was also issues with ALL inclusive - what they don't tell you is no room service, bowing, mini-golf, etc. were EXTRA even though I called and asked specifically three times they assured me it was included and it was not. The beach had a TON of seaweed - the water was warm and beautiful but the seaweed took away from the fun and utilization of the beach. The adult only sections were great and next time we'll stay on that side and make sure to ask what's included. They also have premier but no one could articulate how that worked and how we can get premium services. Great place to go but be aware of the food arrangements...

    “Great facilities. Not so great checking in and out.”

    Be forewarned that check in and check out will be lengthy. I’m not sure what benefit I received by doing the pre-check in on Barcelo website. IMO...there was an excess of bell hops to help with luggage and not enough staff working behind the counters. The rooms and resort facilities were awesome. We spent most of our days near the pool and the pool service was excellent as there always seemed to be someone asking if we needed anything. A word of caution that the pool deck can be slippery as we saw plenty of falls. I did not get to enjoy the ocean much as I’d like because of the sea weed problem that affected all the resorts in that area. We were pleasantly surprised when we received a Premium upgrade for booking thru Barcelo.com. This was a nice perk and we regularly used the seafood restaurant for breakfast lunch. I could see myself returning here if the sea weed happens to go away.

    “Amaya vacation”

    Big resort. Lots of walking to get around. They do have a train which helps. Good family resort if you get a room in the family section. Could use more AC in the restaurants. You should know a little Spanish. It helps when ordering.
