beautiful beach poor service

Really nice beach and pool areas. Very poor customer service. All inclusive resort but staff are not at all customer focused, When you could get their attention away from their personal conversations most acted like they were very bothered by having to serve a drink at the bar or answer a question. Housekeeping staff very poor, Shampoo container in bathroom empty for 6 of the 7 days we were there despite asking for refill. Called many times over the day including going to front desk and customer service area to ask to have room made up, towels replaced and bottled water. Finally got 2 towels and a bottle of water at 10pm, after getting manager involved. Minifridge in room never replenished even though card in room stated it would be refilled daily. Food was good but needed to stand in line daily to make a reservation for dinner each night. Wait staff mostly unfriendly, unsmiling and bordered on rude. Have stayed at other all inclusive resorts in the area and have always had much better service. We will certainly NEVER stay at this resort again.

Eighth Times A Charm !”

Eighth Times A Charm !” Myself ,wife and 2 daughters returned again for our eighth trip to the Barcelo Punta Cana. It is so close to Paradise that we keep returning, 10 days at a time .This trip was to celebrate My Wifes Birthday and the staff at the resort made sure she had a memorable birthday. From the time our Transport from the airport to the resort , the excitement builds and as we arrive we are greeted warmly by an old friend Nero the head bellman. Nero gives the order to handle our luggage and from then on no worries. We check in at the Club Premium and we were greeted again by Angela another friend and she handled all the small extras to help us get started properly then on to our rooms , all set for us and we unpack. Go down to the buffet and get some great foods. Then a casual walk around being greeting by many old friends ,a couple of toddies later we head for our rooms to relax and be ready for tomorrow. Bathing suits on and a shirt or cover up we head for the buffet for breakfast , the variety of foods is amazing . Now off to the pool for a few hours of sheer relaxation and a Bloody Mary or two from the small bar near our quiet pool ( the smaller of two pools). Lunch around noon , our preference the Mexican Restaurant near our pool . A salad and some Grilled Grouper or Grilled Chicken Filet and back to our rooms for a nap. Later on I speak with Guest Services and arrange several restaurant dinners at a variety of cuisines. We decide tomorrow we will hit the beach, it's clean white sand and we enjoy a couple of hours there in the sun . I guess I could go on for a long time here but I hate to bore you about our trip. Let me just say The More Times You Return To The Barcelo PC the better you will find it ! We generally return once or twice a year. Hard to find better people or better foods .Oh BTW I have found that a few small tips always please the people that please you ! I highly recommend The Barcelo Punta Cana TRY IT YOU'LL LIKE IT ! The Baron Family Garden City Beach,SC Room Tip: Ocean View are a little noisier due to the pools close by. Garden side much quieter. We always enjoy...

Don't waste your money

Thank goodness for the beaches. Not a very well kept resort..we had to have our room changed because of the extreme noise from the restaurant outside of our first room. The 2nd room was better but not good. Walls were paper thin. Housekeeping comes to rhe door before 8 in the morning and bangs on the door until you answer. Then they don't even have the required items needed to service the room. We went almost 14 hours without clean towels one day because they "didn't have any". Food was very disappointing. They only allow you to eat at a nice restaurant a couple times in an entire week stay leaving you to eat at the buffet which is just refried versions of whatever they had the day before. The hours are odd and there are no options to eat anywhere after 10 PM so if youre looking for a late night snack..there isn't any. They charge for room service which is odd for a so called all inclusive. If the beaches weren't so nice, this would've ruined my honeymoon for sure.

What's to Love

It's all-inclusive and all-aahmazing. You'll want for nada.

Metamorphosis Spa. Aloe-vera body wraps & Shiatsu massages transform you. Body & soul.

An in-water jungle gym, water-spraying palm tree and ginormous frog for your beach babies.

Family fun like supervised trapeze training & a trampoline. Yes, you read that right.

Mediterranean-style architecture makes you feel all royal.

 

What We'd Change

Necessary items, such as sunscreen, can be pretty pricey at the resort's shops. Bring plenty with you, and you'll have no problem getting oodles of pictures of your well-protected bronzed bod.

 

Why You Should Go

It's just a 25 short minutes from the airport. Your sandsational vacay will begin pronto.

There's scuba & snorkeling. Water polo & water basketball. Get splashy.

Three tennis courts and a climbing wall offer fun on terra firma & for those who enjoy heights.

Golf is only 20 minutes away at an 18-hole, par-72 course designed by Juan Manuel Gordilla.

Eco-adventures tours are available for all the explorer types out there.
