The New Bavaro Palace

This resort hands down, has the best beach in Punta Cana and there are lots of the employees that are super hospitable and really create an experience for you. Some memorable staff members that went above and beyond was Zamira @ coffee and rum bar, Angel @ casino bar, and Robinson and Marcia @ the Frog adult only pool bar. Unfortunately the buffet service (breakfast & lunch)was horrendous, 8 out of 10 times while dining, I didn’t even get offered water, and the silverware and glasses were dirty and/or nonexistent on tables. This wasn’t always like this, after 15 years of being a patron at this hotel I came to find this, so I’m hoping that management can turn this around quickly and recover. The room we were given was not what was purchased through cheap Caribbean, and at first we were told that is what we can give you, but after having to speak with multiple guest service managers we were changed to the actual room we reserved, ocean view/junior suite/king bed. The change came on our second day of stay, which was very inconvenient, because we had to re pack and go to front desk and then move to a different room, and of course this was only possible right in the middle of the day which took us off the beach for a couple hours to receive what we should’ve gotten in the first place. I am very forgiving and even tried to examine how busy the property was and find a good excuse, however there seemed to be no reasoning for this. This resort remains the best beachgoers property in Punta Cana and also the best in keeping you private and secure.

Another great time in the DR!

This was our 3rd time in the Dominican. Our first time @Barcelo Bavro Beach. We have stayed @ Barcelo Rivera Maya before and absolutely loved it. Barcelo Bavaro Beach was not short on options. There was always something to do for everyone in the family. The Junior suites were a smash hit with the “HOT TUB” on the balcony, and the beach was well maintained with a semi private area to take a nice walk. What I have noticed with the Barcelo chain is that they are BIG! Resorts. We did find the resort very easy to navigate and felt at home within a few hours. Pirates Island water park although not that big was a great way to spend an afternoon. “THE LAKES AT BARCELO” was one of the best rounds of golf you can play in the Dominican. All in all we would recommend .

Another great time in the DR!

Paradise

This place was absolutely amazing. There is a language barrier at times but they quickly find someone to assist with the communication. I was pleasantly surprised with the food in the buffet. We liked the upstairs buffet a little better. If you get tired of buffet food you can go over to the the restaurant by the golf course for delicious sit down lunch options. The restaurants for dinner were also delicious. My personal rankings would be steak house, Mexican, Japanese, Italian, sea food, Spanish. The beach and the pool are breath taking. There is plenty of seats but people do go out early and put towels on chairs. The activity staff keep you entertained by the pool. They give you more than enough alcohol in your drinks but you pay more for premium liquor. Now about the staff. The housekeepers, bartenders, waiters and waitresses are the foundation of the resort. These were some of the hardest working kind spirited people I've ever had the privilege of being around. I treated them with respect and kindness and they provided me with the best service I've ever had at an all inclusive resort. I will definitely return back and highly recommend it for anyone looking for a great vacation.

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.
