Great Family Stay

We stayed in a Family Suite (Wife, Son, MiL and Self), we received a free upgrade to this room since we initially booked a Deluxe room. I must say if you are traveling with kids or more then one family member it is worth the extra money to get the Family suite if you don't get a free upgrade. The Family suite has two separate bedrooms separated by the bathroom so you get privacy. Just a couple things about the room, we did find a cockroach in the room and the beds are a little firm. The Barci water park is just a short walk and there is a bar that is open there. The is no charge for the Barci Waterpark but there is for the pirate Waterpark just down the path. The resort is huge but there is a restaurant at the golf course that is included called Hoyo 19, the food was OK there, which was pretty standard for this resort. The food at the buffets wasn't that great, there is lots of seafood. Most of the selections of anything at the buffet has been sitting for a while and is overcooked. There just wasn't a whole lot to eat that was to my families liking. We didn't have a chance to try most of the restaurants just the Mexican restaurant, which was yet again just ok. The concierge we tried booking restaurant reservations wasn't too helpful and only had spaces available at 10pm for certain restaurants so we did get a chance to try most of them (maybe bribe the concierge?). The Japanese resturant has a surcharge, didnt know that. The pools were nice, they are huge so you don't have to worry about being too crowded unless you are by the swim up bar. They don't serve drinks on the beach either. The water is so nice and warm, a little bit seaweed but you can swim in it and it is not wave or rocky.There are lots of boats that go by which might be the reason for the seaweed floating by. Overall, even with the so-so food and bug in the room we fully enjoyed ourselves and would go back in a heartbeat.

Excellent Vacation

Please ignore all the negative reviews you may read about this resort! This place was amazing! This is my second trip using cheap Caribbean and second time staying in a Barcelo resort (first was Mexico). We absolutely love both. Cheap Caribbean is super easy to use and the Amstar representatives are awesome! We used Amstar transportation to and from the resort, they were very friendly and easy to find in their "blue Hawaiian shirts" Ruby at Barcelo was very helpful with setting up our excursions and arranging our transportation back to the airport at the end of our trip. Victor was also great, he gave us helpful information about going through customs in the airport. Checkin was easy and fast when we arrived. Almost all of the staff spoke English or enough to communicate easily. The resort was stunning! The grounds are very well kept, the rooms were spotless, the pools were great, and the beach is breathtaking!! Our room was 5129 which was a very short walk to everything--the buffets, the pool, & the beach. We even had a view of the ocean from our balcony which was not expected! We really enjoyed the Jacuzzi on the balcony, the spacious room, and the amazing shower! The only complaint I have about the room is the bed was hard and uncomfortable. Cheap Caribbean let the resort know we were celebrating our anniversary and on our last night they made a heart out of towels and put flower pedals around the room, it was nice. We ate at the Japanese restaurant and the Mexican. Our favorite by far was the Japanese! The buffets were good, we liked the Striker sports bar a lot. Sometimes it is difficult to flag the waiters down for a drink in the buffets but it's usually because it's busy. The resort offers free non-motorized water sports. We took advantage of the kayaks and the pedal boats which was fun. We carried our own snorkel gear and snorkeled on our own. The extra excursion we chose was dune buggies which was a blast! We only made it to one show, the circus, during our stay because they started at 10pm, which was sort of late. The circus was absolutely amazing, the performers were very talented! Things to consider-bring insulated cups for drinks, your drinks get hot quick in their plastic cups plus you make less trips to the bar, take a bag for sunscreen and other items when going to the beach, pool, or on excursions, take advantage of the free 15 minute Wi-Fi in the gift shop, water shoes are a good idea, and bring money for tips. If your looking for a relaxing and beautiful vacation I would choose this resort!

Family Vacation 2016

This was a family trip with over 30 people with varied interest. I would highly recommend this resort for a group. The resort overall was excellent we pretty much stayed within the resort property (primarily since we had a large group of all ages). We did take a snorkel trip that was great and also did a lot of windsurfing and played golf. The golf course was excellent and easily accessible. We really like that everything was on essentially one level and did not have to get on elevators etc. and everything was in walking distance. The resort was spotless, food was very good and the rooms were great. All in all I give it a 4.5 out of 5. The only thing that was lacking was there was to real nightlife except for the disco other than that perfect.

Beautiful beach and pools, lots to do

Can't beat this resort for the price. Beautiful resort, rooms, grounds are very clean. Tons of activities and to do at pool and water sports, arcade, water park, tennis and paddle ball courts. There are a lot of families at this resort, have great kids area, never felt over crowded. Quick (15/20 minute ) drive to/from airport. Check in at the hotel is a mess. We were told to return in an hour as our room was not ready (this happened 4 times), so 4 hours later we were able to get into room. They did allow us to have bracelets put on so we could enjoy the resort. "For the trouble" they allowed us to eat in the French restaurant for free(usually a charge). -food was average; you MUST make your reservations for dinner as soon as you get there otherwise you will not get any. Men MUST wear slacks and closed toe shoes to dinner, they won't let you in. Our fav was japanese and seafood. -rooms very clean, jacuzzi rooms are closer to beach and food. Air conditioner seemed to get warmer at night. The neighbors doors and chairs across the floor are very loud. - service could have been better. They are greatful for tips, but compared to other resorts in Mexico, you had to walk up to bar and order for yourself, no service on beach or by pool.

Hotel Description

Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe: Sparkling Shoreline, Signature Golf and 24-Hour Casino

Ready to clock out and invest in some real family time? Then grab a swimsuit and head for the sugary sands of Bavaro Beach at Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe in Punta Cana. In fact, the seductive, blue waters and luscious palm trees prompted National Geographic to dub this stretch one of the world's best beaches. As one of the biggest hotspots for divers, the sparkling, turquoise sea promotes guests to seek out hidden treasures in the coral reefs. If you are still a little green, you can still get your feet wet by earning PADI-diving certification. Deluxe beach beds, a mix of adult and family pools and separate family-friendly and adults-only wings increase the appeal of this Dominican Republic getaway.

While the siren call of the beach is irresistible by day, after sunset, Lady Luck beckons you at the 24-hour casino while mix-master DJs and Vegas-style extravaganzas keep you partying well into the night. A Broadway-style theater serves up the best in nightly entertainment. From Spanish tapas to contemporary Japanese cuisine, a tempting array of dining options invite guests to try a new dish every night. Don't miss an opportunity to visit El Coral Restaurant where the seafood is so fresh it was swimming while you were at breakfast.

If you've got energy to burn, there's plenty to do at Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe, Punta Cana! With plenty of all-inclusive perks, you play a few games in the regulation-sized baseball diamond, soccer field, or get wet at the resort's water park. If you would rather tee-off, check out the signature 18-hole golf course designed by one of the world's most inventive golf architects, P.B. Dye. Want to enjoy your vacation at a slower pace? Opt for pampering at the hotel's premier spa, Barcelo U. Nothing beats their sublime, hot-stone massage on the terrace with Bali beds. If you want to spend a lazy afternoon with your family, check out the resort's ample shopping at the 16-store arcade. After a fun-filled day exploring the area, nothing says relaxation like a refreshing pool-side pina colada from El Cielo Bar.

When you need some relaxing downtime, we love the new, 610-square-foot Junior Suite Deluxe with its Jacuzzi on the terrace. Traveling with the family? We recommend the two-bedroom Family Deluxe Room units that feature two separate bedrooms and two terraces, one with Jacuzzi. If family time has become scattered at best, then why not spend some quality time together at Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe in Punta Cana!
