Not recommended

I've been to Punta Cana multiple times and for the first time ever, I can honestly say that the services were terrible overall. The food in the buffet (for both breakfast and lunch) was not tasty, the majority of the food looked and tasted old and not fresh. I spent a few first couple of days without eating along with a few others in my group because even the food at the Seafood restaurant tasted terrible. The quality and variety of drinks has decreased significantly. These resorts used to have their local beer, Presidente available in very cold bottles now it is only available on TAP and it warm and water down. The cleanliness of the rooms is questionable. The housekeeping staff know the total amount of persons in the room yet don't staff the room accordingly, each one of our rooms had 4 people staying in them and we only had 3 towels in each room every single time housekeeping came in to stock the room all they would stock was the towels and would not clean anything. They would make the beds and change the towels but nothing more than that. We had to ask them for the 4 towels and if you want anything else that they failed to leave in the room during their housekeeping shift they direct you to call the lobby and request it, they can't just give it to you from their cart which is ridiculous because of the wait time before they bring you anything from the lobby. Additionally while my daughter was showering, a roach came up through the drain, totally disgusting. I would NOT recommend this hotel to anyone it is not worth it especially considering it is supposed to be one of the best ones and was pretty pricey in comparison to others available in the area.

Family trip July 2019

Resort (pools, rooms, outdoors) maintenance was 100% beautiful. Did not like that I had to pay for WiFi & room service at resort but yet I got an all inclusive package. Staff not so friendly. It seemed as if it’s just a job to staff. Food choices at buffet were average. Restaurant reservations have to be made the day you arrive to resort otherwise you will not be able to get in. Liked the gym and various classes offered. Bar service great however I have stayed at other all inclusive resorts and there is poolside service and at this resort there was no pool side service. We had to go and get our drinks at the bar ourselves which was ok considering all the bad publicity DR has been getting lately. I did like the variety of water parks they have for kids. Not a lot of night activities to do on resort other than casino, theatre performances,& night club. Overall stay was average experience to me.

Great Resort!

Barcelo Bavaro Family Club: First off, service is great! Miramar Buffet was really good and Kyote Japanese was the best. The buffet at Strykers is very small. My son is 11 and loved the arcade and bowling. Casino was also a lot of fun but dealers don’t have much of a personality. Pools are great! Beach had some seaweed, but it was picked up daily, by hand. Spa was good. Beach was private in front of the resort so locals are not selling anything at all.

Great Resort!
