Amazing complex yet not everyone is on the same pa

Although the complex is amazing and we'll known, I myself will probably not be returning due to an incident which I can only conclude that this manager of the Dominican buffet did not like my appearance. I was approached and told that I needed to leave and change my shirt if I wanted to return. I would of not minded in doing so yet when I looked around the location I saw others wearing similar shirts....the shirt I was wearing was sleeveless yet it covered my body well. Others were wearing the same, as well as muscle shirts. When I pointed this to Orlando, the manager that was forcing me out of the buffet, he simply stated that the rules didn't pertain to them because they were with their parents! UNACCEPTABLE. Just because some of the people I pointed out were teenagers means that they are exempt to this rule? As far as I was told, only the restaurants that require appointment have dress codes NOT the buffet. Not only did I feel insulted but also felt like I was being targeted. I am planning another trip soon and if this situation isn't handled and my wife made happy with the resolution, not only will I never set foot into this complex but I'll never do business with cheap caribbean. I'm not trying to be difficult, I'm just trying to enjoy my honeymoon and with the back and forth argument with the staff when I know what was required for dining attire made it difficult to enjoy the evening especially when we were starving. Thank you very much for your attention and look forward to be contact with an accommodating resolution.

Amazing Bavaro Deluxe Palace.

This trip went very very smooth. Amstar & their friendly staff got us too & from the resort w. ease. We arrived prior to check in so the staff held our bags while we enjoyed lunch at the Miramar( Name says it all). Once we got to our room(5323 Junior Suite) it was very clean with a lot of extra's trinkets I was not expecting, Maria did a great job keeping our room clean even after some wild nights. Johnnie was our favorite bartender(Genuine) in the striker sports bar which we always went to for a couple drinks after the Bavaro theater which had an amazing show every night at 10pm perfect for after dinner. As for dinner Kyoto ( @ the grill)& La Comieda are a must. Thomasa was are second favorite bartender & she was at cielo adults only pool & bar we would get drinks there while hitting the most Beautiful clearest beach I've ever seen. We also highly recommend excursion Ocean Adventure Bavaro Splash, which included Speed Boats, Snuba Diving & Snorkel - what a blast S/O to our amstar rep Wilson he was very professional & on point. I will be planning my next trip via CheapCarribian becuase this all fell together so perfectly.

Average

When we arrived they sad they would not give us our room with out cheapcarribean print out. it was a hassle checking in. It was a great resort for my son, he had a blast, the food is awful, and we made 2 reservations at their restaurants and both were ruined. We got to the restaurant and they didn't have our reservation. Our room was not clean when we arrived and we had to constantly had to ask for new sodas and waters because they had already been opened. The drinks were also not very good. If you do go we recommend the Hoy 19 buffet out of all of them and the lobby bar for drinks and service.

Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe

First time traveling to Dominican Republic and me and my 2 adult daughters stayed in Punta Cana at Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe. This is our 2nd time to a Barcelo (1st time in Mexico) and they did not disappoint! Beautiful resort, something to do for everyone, very clean, friendly staff, secure beach with guards keeping vendors off and away. Good entertainment, lots of pools, you need to secure pool chairs early, really no need to leave resort. Take the footpath to shopping (but you leave the security of the resort). Vendors were very pushy outside the resort. A lot of the male staff were very flirty which was a big turn off, we just wanted to enjoy our vacation without constantly being hit on. Buffet had 100's of food items to choose from, biggest disappointment was lack of gluten free items. Resort told me ahead of time not to worry as everything was labeled with food allergies to gluten, it was NOT. Free bottled water was included in all-inclusive. We had dinner at the Steakhouse & Spanish Restaurant (make reservations ahead of time via email to Barcelo so you get a spot) Resort is in a cove and has seaweed on shore but they work hard to keep it cleaned up. Plenty of water sports included. We sea kayaked and paid $50 each for 2 people to go para-sailing. That was a fun adventure. Tried to book excursion to Santo Domingo through Cheap Caribbean for a Sunday, paid for it... but was told no excursions on Sunday (website says they go there Sunday) and Mondays the museums are all closed so we didnt get to go. Overall great experience, we would go back. Staff are friendly and provide great service except for room service for cleaning and changing towels was slow.

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!
