Awesome Beach Getaway

Overall we had an awesome stay at the Barceló Bavaro Palace. I’LL list some of the goods and bass below. Bad: Original room (Superior): We ended up choosing the cheapest option for room in an effort to save money. Terrible decision. 10/10 do not recommend lol. We already planned to try to upgrade once we got there but after the first night could not wait to get our upgraded room, here’s why: our original room was next to the golf course and a lagoon and some other water features surrounding it. We were super excited thinking about how pretty the sun would be coming up and just the view in general. However when returned from dinner we realized that no pretty view could make up for the dozens of mosquitoes that greeted us. We batted at them all night and tried to cover our heads with the blanket to keep them away. We woke up with 20+ bites each that bothered us the rest of the trip. Thank goodness we were able to upgrade to an amazing room for the rest of our stay. (More on that later) Dining: The dining was just ok to us. There were several different buffets to choose from, though they pretty much served the same things. I’m a picky eater so living off of fruit, pancakes, and pasta was my options for the week. My husband is not a picky eater and found more options he liked but still just described them as ok. We had dinner reservations at 4 different specialty restaurants. They were better than the buffet but not the best we’ve had at all inclusive resorts. However one was excellent. El Kyoto served hibachi style dinner and was amazing. We tried to make reservations there an additional night but they were booked for the rest of our time there. Goods: The beach and beach access was amazing! Very private and even with lots of guests never seemed packed. They had free kayak, paddle board, and other water activity rentals available. As well as offered many excursions. There weren’t people approaching you trying to sell you stuff the whole time like we’ve experienced in other international beach vacations *cough Cabo cough* The resort itself was very nice and our room upgrade had an amazing view with a price tag that reflected it. But being our 5 year anniversary and many mosquito bites we came to the conclusion that it was worth it.

Great purchase

Beaches and resort very clean!! Friendly. It was gorgeous there!! We did book our excursion through our booking agent representative on site. Very helpful with any questions we had. I would prefer to that again. I heard other experience with booking through the resort. They had way more people on the excursions. Through our booking agent was smaller groups which I preferred. I was a little worried when got to our excursion cause didn’t take much money and made us purchase a locker to put our personal belongings in. Was bummed couldn’t take cell phone for pictures or sunscreen. Also lunch included didn’t know but had to pay for drinks. Stopped at shop could buy things. Wish I would of taken a little more cash. Definitely would go back. Had relaxing great experience for first time going!! Went with friends.

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.
