Barcelo Bavaro Palace

I would recommend this place. The staff are extremely friendly and eager to please. The resort is well kept and very clean. My room was awesome. The only thing is the food is ok. Everything taste like the buffet. You can get tired of it after a while. We even ate at the steakhouse. Delicious but no different from buffet. Just different environment. The milk was like water. The orange juice not real juice but besides these things overall great. I would definitely want to go back. Be weary of everyone trying to sell excursions.

I would not go back

Took over 2 hours to check in, huge cockroaches in the room. Our hotel phone did not work for 3 days we told the staff daily and no one ever did anything about it.

Great Rooms & Pools

The Good: - Family rooms were awesome. When needed/wanted there was good separation from our 2 teens. - The pool - Bar service and drink options - The value, what we paid vs what we received - Beach chairs were always available if you walked a bit. We were able to get 4 chairs as late as 12:30 - Sports Bar: Open 24x7, if our 14 yr old wasn't asleep, or at the beach or pool, then he was in the sports bar in the theater seating watching some sporting event. The OK - The food. It was NOT bad and nobody in our party got sick, instead the food was just OK -- nothing special. When we were hungry we ate, but there were not any items offered that really created a craving. If you're a Foodie (we're not) I would not recommend. - Sea grass, it was on the beach and in part of the water. It really did NOT turn us off or make us change any plans, but it was noticeable. We've stayed in a resort on the Cancun Rivera and the sea grass there was much worse than Bavaro Beach. - It was pretty easy to get pool chairs before 9:30, but tough after that. - Restaurant service was hit and miss. Some good, some OK, but none really bad.

Family Vacation

This is a great family resort with a lot of activities and fun for the kids. The pools are good and depending on the crowd size affects its cleanliness. we have been here before because the kids 5,6 really enjoy the activities and the kids water areas. The food this time around was a lot better than before and we enjoyed it more. we stayed in a family two story, it has comfortable beds, which made us sleep good. Due to the high traffic and kids the showers on the first floor flood and cant be used, so the kids had to come upstairs an use our shower,which wasn't much different. Overall, we enjoy the resort and would recommend and go back.
