"We were very disappointed in the quality of the beach at the resort. There was lots of grass in the water and the sand wasn't clean. No waves was a real disappointment." – Kathy258921414

Please take this review serious

First, I'll start by telling everyone that cheap carribean was the only helpful and positive thing in our trip. Unfortunately for us, our room was robbed while we were at dinner one night and we got hit pretty hard. We called the hotel staff, and the general manager and security manager showed up and did not seemed at all concerned. We were told that the security cameras did not work and the USB port in our doorknob was also broken. Therefore, the hotel manager was unable to find the employee that broke into our room using a hotel key (no forced entry). I ventured outside the hotel directly to the local police department where I filed a police report. While in the police station, I found out that the ATM at this resort was broken into on our 2 night stay. Where is the hotel security? Upon my return, still no apology or resolution from the hotel management team. The only sympathy I ever received was from the cheap carribean representative at the hotel. Bad food and bad service can be overlooked but security is not to be ignored. I do not blame cheap carribean, I blame Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe for the bad customer service. I ask everyone to please post only honest reviews as we are the eyes and ears of cheao carribean and any other travel agencies. p.s. the safety box in our room had a faulty lock. Per the GM in the hotel, this was caused by the merging of 3 hotel computer systems.

Positive- My girlfriend and I went there for our little monthly vacation and we were blown away by the service, comfort, amenities, and price. Trust me we are both flight attendants and see our fare share of hotels but this one was amazing. You know the saying, "you get what you pay for" this hotel goes beyond that. From the punctual pick up time from the airport to the check out time it was all an amazing experience. The rooms are very comfortable, big, clean, updated, and they leave cookies and soft drinks as well as beer in your fridge. The beach is beautiful from white sand to turquoise water. The food was pretty good, the buffet had a lot to choose from and the restaurants were really good. We ate at the steak restaurant and the seafood restaurant. I recommend those. Also, book your meal times for the restaurants as soon as you check in because they go by FAST! Another thing the hotel also has tours if you want to leave the hotel. We also did the spa, it was a little pricey but I can say it's the first time I have ever seen my girlfriend so relaxed. The staff is probably the best in my experience. From the beginning all they cared about was making your experience a memorable and enjoyable one. So to you, the reader, if you are looking at two hotels and you see that the Barcelo Palace Deluxe is a little more expensive. Pick it. I promise you you won't regret this one. If you are looking for a cheaper on the Barcelo Bavaro beach is connected to the deluxe. The great this hotel is that both hotels share the same amenities and are connected. Ok so negatives- When you check in it can get a little crowded and confusing especially with the language barrier. Relax and you'll be ok. Also if you don't want a bell man. Tell them no. They seem to want to do it and can feel pressured at times but just say no. Yes the drinks can be weak at times. Solution is drink more! Lol after all it is all inclusive. Also some bartenders if you tip well enough they will "hook you up!" Our flight cancelled and unfortunately had to stay at another barcelo hotel (Barcelo Dominican Beach and it was a nightmare. The rooms were old, dirty, broken, no hot water, broken a/c, and dirty beaches with a lot of people wanting to sell you stuff.) Could not in mind believe how those two hotels are OWNED BY THE SAME COMPANY. All you need to know. Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe or Barcelo Bavaro Beach if tight on money. BOOK IT!

Great Facility, not so great service

Good parts: Great facility. The resort is very beautiful, and the family room was awesome - we have two kids, and the family suite(two good-size bedrooms: one with king bed and the other with two double) worked out perfect. This is the best room we have had on family vacations, and the beds are very comfortable. The swimming pools are beautiful and well-maintained. The beach is long and beauitiful. There are all kinds of activities for different ages - casinos, game zone, water arobics, dance on the beach(with DJ), beach volyball, sailings, Disco, theatre etc. Great food: We love the buffet, and the restaurants. The food has a large variety of selections, and the quality is fantastic. All organic, and tastes great. We ate so much, but never felt uncomfortable as we would do in the US(with the additives, chemicals all that). Poor service: People can hardly speak English, and they appear to be not very friendly, but it may be the cutural thing. Slow at pouring water at the buffet- we did tip often, but it did not seem to help. Very few people walking around the resort asking you to drink. (We did have more of these in the Rivera Maya resort last year.) At check-in, the front desk asked whether we would like some drinks, and we clearly said "Yes", but never got any. :-( They don't take credit cards very well here at the shops. Most of the time they will tell you they want cash, otherwise they have to charge you a whopping 16% tax. Advise: pack your suncreen, as they will cost you a fortune there with the same brand. Avoid shopping(except gift) here will be good. One more thing: when we booked the package, we were promised a $1200 resort credit and I had the impression that I can use it as cash to shop on the resot. That is totally a scam. They are just cupons and you have to purchase things to use them, and I did not find anyone that was willing to take them. Overall, if you don't mind language barrier and are content with limited personal services. this is a great place to go for all-inclusive. It is the best Barcelo property we have been to. By the way, It is only 20 minutes ride from the airport.

Lost 8 pounds. Food was NOT fit to eat

Rooms were great! All of the food was extremly BAD. I thought i could eat just about anything(but liver) I found out i could"t. Most of the resorts have something that is good NOT this one. My wife and i were amazed how bad it really was. The staff did not care if you tipped or not. Terrible service all the way from the top down..Save your money and stay away Barcelo Bravo Deluxe

Hotel Description

Barcelo Bavaro: 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!
