HAD a blast at Barcelo Bavaro Beach!!!

Over all we had such an awesome time! The only thing we really didn't like about it was the service at the Steakhouse restaurant and Seafood one, it was sooooooooooooo slow! I mean over 2 hours of waiting slow, I understand we are on vacation but we're also hungry too... lol. BUT the Japanese & the French restaurant were totally awesome I loved our waiter at the Japanese one, "yeah baby whoop whoop" he was so fun!! And, our waitress we had at the French restaurant was so incredibly sweet!!! And I felt the buffet had lots to choose from and to new ones to try everything was pretty tasty! I was very sad there was no swim up bar at the resort too, and the waitress staff we're very sweet but were extremely slow at getting drinks as they only had 1 or 2 going around trying to accommodate to everyone at the pool! No one to get you drinks on the beach at all. And that bar was packed with people trying to get drinks too. So I think they had a swim up bar there would be less waiting or have more wait staff working? Jose (in my photo) at bar located closest to the reception desk was our FAVORITE though all the bartenders we're totally awesome at that bar I wish I could remember everyones names, but he would bring a smile to your face, with his cute dancing and singing!!! I loved the activities they had at the pool, some were so funny and loved the learning to dance (even though my husband is broken and can't dance to save his life it was fun) .... and the night time shows were amazing, the Michael Jackson one was my favorite! I loved too they had outdoor games to play too! Every person greeted you with a smile or a hello! The Disco bar was fun too! I loved our trip and I would for sure go back again to that resort! I miss everyone already so much! This was one of my favorite vacations I've been on in a long time! Thank you!

Great Resort

Barcelo Bavaro - Adults Only was a great place for my wife and I to spend our 10th wedding anniversary. It only took 20 minutes to get to the resort from the airport. The Barcelo Resort was huge. We realized on our first venture over to the family side that we had made a wise decision in choosing the Adults Only. Family side was crowded and it was clearly a challenge to find a spot on the beach or by the pool. There was never a problem for us to find comfortable spots at the beach or pool on the Adult side. With all this said, we will still come back and stay on the family side when we bring our daughter next time. The restaurant selection was great. Overall we had great experiences. There was only one restaurant that left us underwhelmed. While the room could certainly use some updates, we only used the space for small amounts of time (sleep and shower). All of the utilities worked as they should, so we really don't have much of a complaint overall on the room. The service team was a significant bonus to the overall experience. Everyone that we encountered was very welcoming, helpful, polite and they all genuinely seemed to enjoy working there. While I am selfishly reluctant to post this review, because I don't want too many people to know about this place, we certainly owe it to the Barcelo Bavaro Team a very positive review. Can't wait to go back!!!

Not as nice as other reviews imply

First, the adults resort location is beautiful, with lovely landscaping, a nice beach, and a huge pool. We had a VIP package, so were checked in at a special place, got a free 20 minute massage, and were provided with "$1000 Credit" which is really just a discounted price on services that you have to pay for. We had "Superior Room Ocean Front Club Premium." I expected something "superior." The room we had was just ok. We had an end unit but it was very old. Kind of like a 2-3 star "quality inn" style. I was pretty disappointed. Perhaps my greatest disappointment was with the overall quality of service and amenities on the Adults only resort. First, people just weren't that friendly. We did find a few who were very nice and helpful, but as a general rule, not so much. For example, when we first arrived and went to the pool bar to, the bartenders barely spoke and looked at us with contempt. There was no "Welcome to the resort" or even a hello. Just an impatient look like--just tell me what you want so I can move on. no "please" no "thank you" no "enjoy", no nothing. And the liquor available is poor quality and no top shelf options. The pina coladas were disgusting, whether I could get a palatable margarita depended on the bartender. the options were very limited. I ended up drinking their cheap champagne because it was the only option I could stomach for the trip. I was very disappointed--but maybe my expectations were too high based on the other reviews I read before booking. The best thing about the resort is the restaurants. Not the buffet style ones, but the ones you have to make a reservation for for your dinner. These were all excellent and there, the service was very good. Note, though that these are not all located on the Adults resort. The adults only Barcelo Bavaro is actually part of a large complex that includes the Plaza resort and the villas. If you want to go and like to have things to do, I suggest the Plaza instead of the adults side. There is more to do on that campus. There are few activities on the Adults side and it closes down for all intents and purposes by about 10PM.The other complex is open til midnight with shops and restaurants and live stage shows; and beyond if you like casino gambling. You have to take a trolley (or you can walk if you have comfortable shoes) to get from the adult side to where the action is. In summary I was disappointed with the quantity and quality of the amenities and the service at the Barcelo Bavaro Beach Resort. In the end we enjoyed being away and in the Carribean, but there was nothing about this resort that would cause us to return versus some other place.

Just ok -but never again

Well let me start by saying check in is smooth and Angel the bartender at the lobby bar is a gem. The circus show is amazing. Wifi isn't standard. Food is sub par--the caribe restaurant is not good and I was told I would have to pay an upcharge for a la carte restaurants. Being honest, most resort food in Punta Cana is gross to me so I just dealt with it. La Brisa's lunch is pretty decent especially the days where they offer grilled prawns. Fitness center is nice. The sports bar at the palace is cool. Here's my issue. My husband and I are big tippers. Regardless of that, the two days we spent watching American football in the Teatro Beach theater --awesome big screen btw--were distributing. It was so sad to see the waitresses flock to the European looking patrons and flat out ignore us. At times, some waitresses would almost clobber a European/Caucasian patron as soon as the person entered the room. Finally I told a manager and he acted as if I was saying the sky was blue. Even after this came to a manager's attention, the waitresses would just walk on by. I know this may be a mindset of the DR ppl but for me it's never again to a Barcelo and never again to Punta Cana. Now what's also weird is that a cheap carribean representative called me very early my first morning on the property. She asked my concerns. I told her what they were and I haven't heard from her since. Instead she encouraged a tour.

What's to Love

The resort sits on one of the 10 best beaches on the planet - it's phenomenal.

Soaking in the breath-stealing views at the spa as you melt into their stress-busting treatments.

It's an adult-only. No kiddos splashing you or your cocktail. (Was that applause we just heard?)

The epic pools beds that are built-in and submerged. Nonstop chill.

Taking banana rides on the open seas, then switching to the U-Tube crazy ball.

 

What We'd Change

We wish the sister-property privileges extended to all of the restaurants in the complex, since there are only two dining options directly on-site. Food here is stellar, though, and definitely splurge-worthy.

 

Why You Should Go

It's just 20 short minutes from the airport - your dreamy Dominican vacay will start in a flash.

The resort shares some privileges with their sister property, Bavaro Palace Deluxe, where kids are welcome.

You can take glass-bottom boat rides. It's a little extra, but life is short.

There are sunfish, windsurfing, catamaran classes for a fee, but you walk, er, sail away with a skill.

Tee off at the Lakes Golf Course - an 18-hole, par 72 golf course - challenging & lush.
