Great Value, Great Experience

This resort was a great value. I have stayed at Barcelo Resorts in Cancun, and I must say the service was not as great in comparison. It was still a wonderful experience, but I would not expect staff at the resort to be overly friendly or enthusiastic (which was my experience in Mexico). The beaches and pools were great, and everything was centered around the Bavaro Palace (restaurants, casino, shops, nighclub). We also visited the Bavaro Beach Adult only resort for dinner, and it was a calmer quieter vibe, but we were glad we chose the Palace just for convenience. Wifi was available for free in the casino area for 12 hours a day (but you can purchase wifi for the room). The food was excellent! I am a vegetarian and I found various options for dining in the buffets and the restaurants as well. The only bummer about the restaurants is that there were limited options for dining, as reservations fill up quickly (we went to book our reservations just after checking in, and we were unable to find reasonable reservation times for our top restaurant choices, and the staff member didn't seem too interested in helping us work out this issue either). If you want to book excursions, don't be pulled into the exclusive desk in the main lobby, as there is a whole room full of reps from other travel agencies on the lower levels by the shops (which offer more variety in trips and better prices in my opinion). The room was fantastic, the bathroom was clean, and the Jacuzzi was a plus (there was also a privacy shade that pulls down to cover the jacuzzi on the balcony). The entire resort is covered with beachfront, so you will never have to worry about finding a spot. There were also many water sports included with your purchase, including kayaking and wind surfing. We booked transportation via cheap Caribbean, and we were picked up directly from the airport (no voucher necessary, just look for cheap carribbean at travel desk toward airport exit), and the ride was about 20 mins. We shared the bus with other folks, but we were the first ones dropped off. Would definitely recommend, and even visit again in the future!

Great Place!

Overall our stay was really great. my only recommendation is that you take the train ride throughout the resort the first day that you get there so that you get to see every option. The beach does have a lot of coral which the staff cleans up daily. The only reason we gave the service as a four instead of a five is because the front desk receptionist was not very helpful and kind of rude when we first checked in, but after that experience everyone was phenomenal.

What's to Love

It's all-inclusive, all-family-centric and all-Dominican dreamy.

The sugar-white sands of Bavaro Beach - one of the 10 best beaches on the planet.

Anxiety-ousting treatments like the Oxygen Facial & Vichy showers, plus the killer view.

Diving/snorkeling at the coral reefs and ogling all the underwater treasures.

The B-Rooms with the cushy, soft bed and raindance showers.

Teeing off at the signature golf course designed by the inventive architect, P.B. Dye.

 

What We'd Change

This place is huge, and we really wish getting from point A to point B were easier, but hey, a complimentary train makes navigating the complex pretty simple.

 

Why You Should Go

It's just 20 short minutes from the airport - your dreamy Punta Cana vacay will start pronto.

You can hop on a kayak. Or grab a game of badminton. But boredom is never allowed.

The Junior Suite has a Jacuzzi on the terrace. Muy splurge-worthy.

If you don't want to walk, a complimentary train will tote you around the complex.

Lady Luck is waiting for you in the 24-casino. Don't disappoint her.

There are 7 tennis courts - bring your A game and kick some butt.
