    “Underwhelming”

    There was lots to do but the quality was sub-par. The food was sub-par most days. If you don't know any spanish it's hard to get anything done. Also, they nickle and dime you. Otherwise it was beuatiful

    “A Nice Get Away”

    I went with two friends and it was such a fun time. Super safe space, they were always making sure everyone had everything they needed. The food was great, loved all the restaurants we went to and he drinks were great everywhere. All of the employees spoke a number of languages making it very easy to see and do everything we wanted. It was also very inexpensive so for college students trying to find a great/inexpensive place to go this is the place. We stayed 3 nights longer in the city then our friends who went to another resort and still paid $300 less then them. Also do the spa it is great. We were sad at first that we didn't do the adult one, but the second we went over there we were relieved, it was so boring! So glad we choose the regular one. The only thing my friends and I did not enjoy was the amount as harassment from the employees (asking for phone numbers/ telling us how beautiful we were/ asking our room number) this happened throughout the trip it just made it a bit more unenjoyable.

    “Very good hotel!”

    Beach and sea are very beautiful. Like in a paradise ) Room is not very newest but it's a very big and clean. In hotel is a lot of bars and restaurants. Food and drinks are very delicious and varied. You can try a lot of exotic fruits. Mango and steaks are the best on the world! The staff is very friendly and speaks English and Spanish. In the hotel a lot of different entertainments (incl. water sports). The country is also very beautiful. There are many tropic islands, waterfalls, jungle and also the oldest city in America (Santo Domingo).

    “Good vacation with family of 5 ”

    Stayed with my family of 5 ages 59, 38, 39, 15 and 7. We’ve travelled to many all inclusive resorts before and this one has some positives and a few negatives. Here was our thoughts: Pros - lots to do for younger children. The water parks, mini putt and other indoor activities kept them very busy. - family room accommodated us well. Clean, spacious and had lots of storage for hanging clothing. - pools were nice and very large so even when it’s quite busy there’s still plenty of room - buffets we’re generally quite good most days. Lots of variety even for the pickiest eaters. Make sure to get coffee from the coffee machines as it is fantastic. Cheese variety was also very good and the make your own stations were great. Also for dessert try the chocolate!! - night entertainment had great shows for the family (not great if you’re a couple or younger party goers) Japanese restaurant- food and entertainment was great and the quality of ingredients was very high. Kids loved the cooking table and they even invited my older son to participate in the show - they don’t tell you this but you can book a dinner at the golf club restaurant and it doesn’t count towards your a la carte number. The food there was amazing, in particular the steak, cheese dip and the desserts! - watersports centre was very good and they were quite accommodating Cons - check in was worst I’ve ever experienced in an all inclusive- took over an hour to check in at 11:00 am and then we couldn’t get our room until 3:00. Was frustrating having to carry around bags when waiting for the room to be ready - many of the entertainment amenities cost extra money - be prepare to spend lots of extra cash in bowling, the larger water park and the arcade area. Would be way better if they included it in the overall resort cost. - Italian restaurant- was horrible experience. Food was cold, we waited over and hour and a half to get food and then when it arrives it tasted like the most basic buffet pasta I’ve ever tasted. Do yourself a favour and avoid this one. - swim up bar - this was the worst spot in the resort. It was quite busy when we were there and it was clear the resort desperately needs another swim up bar. Have to wait way too long to get a drink and by late afternoon it’s not a good spot to be with children due to drunk tourists making fools of themselves. - seaweed is quite bad mid-day so if you enjoy swimming in the ocean go in the morning Overall, we had a very nice family vacation and if you go with a positive attitude and a friendly smile, you’ll have a great time. The people do their best to help make your stay fantastic and they appreciate kindness and a tip never hurts.

    “Barcelo Bavaro Palace”

    Excellent services, Room service can't be better, the only negative point that I see is that they don't have services at the beach area. Food at the restaurants was Ok but nothing out of this world, to be sincere the room service and the buffet at Miramar was much better.
