Horrible. Absolutely horrible.

The grounds and resort itself was very pretty. The staff was beyond terrible. There was absolutely no customer service. We were treated horrible from the moment we walked in. We planned to get married there during our vacation with a very small, intimate ceremony. The wedding planner was very sweet, poor communication in the months leading up to the day. The 3 couples, including us the bride and groom, were supposed to be in the same building and we weren’t. We tried to get us moved and that didn’t happen. We made reservations for dinner on our wedding night and were not allowed in because the men in the wedding party wore shorts. The front desk laughed in my face when they saw them. I was forced to eat at the buffet, good food, but had to carry my dress around the restaurant while being pushed and shoved trying to fight to get food on my plate. Turns out, other guests were given pants to borrow while eating in the restaurants. We were not offered this. The rest of our vacation was spent with the staff ignoring us. The day before we were leaving, we tried guest services to help us get ahold of the prepaid shuttle. This was a joke. We were told that we had to pay for a taxis because he couldn’t get ahold of them. All in all, I’m disgusted. We spent a lot of money to stay in what we thought was going to be a nice, all inclusive resort. What we got was a wedding of being treated horribly.

Low quality service

This is my first trip to DR - occidental and I truly urge the manager of this resort to send all of his team to trainings! What a horrible customer service and attitude the employees have. In two words I will never go back to any Barcelo resorts I will stick to AM resorts!

Never again

Paid for private check in, beachfront, concierge, private bar and food. Upon checking in they did not take me to the proper check in area that I paid for. So in turn, I was unaware of the private bar, food and beach location. Drinks were horrible. Food was ok. Ocean front property was behind the party pool and we could not see the beach. Only pool, loud people and shrubs. We had to walk from the rear area to the front to make dinner reservation which consisted of standing in line for a min of 30-45 waiting on 1 person to help everyone there. The staff from cleaners to wait staff and bartenders were rude and had a look as if you were bothering them at all times. We had to call for towels daily as our bathroom was never stocked. Don’t pay extra cause it doesn’t matter there. On the last day at the main pool my skin, clothes and daughters suit and hair were turned green from the pool. It took several scrubbing to get it all off. There was never any service for drinks at the beach or pools. I have been to DR several times and have already told people to never try this place or it’s affiliates.

What's to Love

It's all-inclusive, all-aahmazing and sits on the famous Bavaro Beach.

Each room has a terrace or a balcony that overlooks gardens or turquoise waves.

The Spanish-style architecture that's a stylish backdrop for beach lovers who are living large.

Being refreshed under the waterfalls in the pools - they'll be hard to leave.

 

What We'd Change

With so many families having fun, there's definitely not a lot of peace and quiet. But who wants a snoozefest while partying in the Caribbean?

 

Why You Should Go

It's just a swift 20 minutes from the airport. You'll be Dominican dreaming in no time.

The Barcelo Bavaro golf course is just a 15-minute drive. Your fairway is not far away.

Jet ski rentals, snorkeling & kayaking are a few splashy alternatives to beachside chillaxing.
