Family Vacation

The resort is great, lots of fun things for the kids and adults to do. The food was a lot better this year and has become more universal. they kept the beaches clean and swept away the sea weed daily. We have been there four times, because my kids love the place and have gotten used to it.

Cheap food and drinks for the money you pay

Second time to this resort and its sooo different, . Now you get cheap worm drinks and bland food. The seafood restaurant will give you boiled lobster saying its grilled, the Asian place its a hit or miss depending on the cook- but they are asking for that $10 tip and wont leave the table without it ..lol Housekeeping is very insensitive, basically yelling outside your door, chatting with the other ladies- so please do not be in your room in the afternoon as you will get mad- I had to take my toddler napping so I had no choice . The beach was awfull...wow full of seaweeds, I mean truck leads of seaweed- I know the resort can;t control the winds but check theta out before you go..kids wont go into the ocean for that matter...ugh Overall..I regret going there and spending all that money

Barcelo Bavaro Palace was FANTASTIC!

We spent a week at the Barcelo Bavaro Palace. We stayed in the family suite. Our wait at the front desk was lengthy but worth the wait. Our room was ready and a nice employee walked us to our room and took care of our luggage. Our family suite was perfect for our family. Although we were a little worried that we should have purchased a package with 2 separate rooms we really liked the loft with the king bed and the 2 full sized bed downstairs. Having 2 bathrooms was also a nice perk. We vacationed with 4 other families. There was so much to do at the resort. We spend most of our time in the pool area. The waitresses kept the drinks flowing. We spent 1 day in the larger waterpark and it was a blast. We didn't think we would end up being there all day but we were. We didn't spend as much time at the beach as I thought we would. We did enjoy the paddling boarding and kayaking. We were able to book our 4 dinners at reasonable times and every restaurant was so accommodating to our guest size of 19. They were able to get us at least close to each other if not all together. The Japanese and Mexican restaurants were our favorite followed by the Steakhouse. The seafood restaurant was our least favorite. We enjoyed the shows each night but wished they were a little earlier. A couple of the kids tried out the Barcy Kids Club (ages 7, 8, 9 and 10). They really didn't enjoy their time there and said the people running it were mean. (I think they were just keeping everyone in line.) The girls only went for 2 hours. If you shop at the stores there go to the ones that have items marked. There is one store that has no prices on anything and you are quote prices that are so overpriced. You can get the items you are looking for cheaper at The Gift Shop or the Beach Shop near the pool. We found the buffet had much to offer everyone in our party. No one left hungry and the variety was great. We loved the memories we made at the Bavaro and are already talking about going back next year!
