Nice hotel but stay at the Barcelo bavaro deluxe

Posted 24-Apr-2015
It's a nice hotel but the rooms look a little dated and the bathroom is small. Also if you don't mind being around children the Barcelo Bavaro Deluxe is a better option because the majority of restaurants, shops and entertainment are there. The food is good at the majority of the buffet and restaurants. My biggest disappointment is the service from the hotel staff when you request help with something as simple as fresh towels or a reservation for dinner there was always a problem. Also we issue a complaint against a security guard at the night club because he took me roughly by the arm away from the dance floor without explaining me before why and nobody did anything about it. They tried to hide from us his name and didn't care if we left disappointed which we did.

My first time!

Posted 23-Apr-2015
Pros: The staff was so friendly and nice...each one greeted you with a smile! Perfectly clean and very well kept. The buffets were comparable Vegas!
Cons: Add beach service for the drinks?
Location: We only left the resort once to do zip lining, so can't really comment on the nearby attractions.
This was my first time to Punta Cana, and in fact, my first trip to the islands overall. I have to say I was blown away! I realize this review is to be for the hotel, but let me just say...the beach and the palm trees and the beautiful blue skies were nothing short of awesome! Now, from the very moment we arrived at the hotel, everyone we met (be it staff or guest) was very pleasant and friendly. Being my first trip out of the country, I was a bit concerned about the cleanliness and up-keep of the resort. I had read about the presence of bugs and even mold due to the humidity at some resorts, but I was happy to find the Barceló Barvaro was immaculately clean and the maintenance was beyond compare. I can honestly say everything about the resort was, in my opinion, first class and absolutely amazing! As much as I'm tempted to try other resorts out of curiosity when I go back to Punta Cana...and I most definitely will go back...I am pretty sure I'll be staying here again...and again!

Great experience

awesome resort, really big with tons of activities going on. Beach was very nice as well, not a lot of seaweed compared to other beaches close by. Would definitely go back again.

THERE ARE BETTER OPTIONS! EXPIDIAS BUYERS BAD TREA

Posted 21-Apr-2015
Pros: NOTHING
Cons: EVERYTHING
Location: GOOD LOCATION , COCO BONGO AND IMAGEN CLUB , SHOPING CENTER SAN JUAN
FROM THE BEGING WE GOT THE WORSE TREATMENT AS EXPIDIA BUYERS. EVEN WHEN MY SISTER IS WITH DISCAPACITY WE GET THE FAREST ROOM AND WE BEEN NEEDED TO COMPLAIN FOR 2 HOURS TO CHANGE THE ROOM BECAUSE EXPIDIA CLIENTES PAY LESS GET LESS. THE BUFFET IS HORIBLE AND YOU NEED TO RESERVE 2 DAYS BEFORE TO REACH TO THE RESTAURANTS. THE CASINO IS A FRAUDE DONT PUT YOUR MONEY IN THERE. TOO BIG AND PRO IN APENDING YOUR TIME AND MONEY. THERE ARE BETTER OPTIONS AROUND. I WILL NEVER GO THERE AGAIN.

perferct

Posted 20-Apr-2015
The staff and resort were absolutly amazing! Most of the staff speaks perfect English, and beach was beautiful! We couldn't have expected more! Just make sure you make you message and dinner reservation well in advance! Also, the boys need nice long pants toed shoes and button up shirts to dine at the nicer resturants!

beautiful place, great beach, not so great food

Posted 20-Apr-2015
Pros: pool, beach
Cons: the food
The hotel and facilities were great. However, the first two days I had to ask the front desk to send house keeping to clean the room. Also minor things in the room such as the safe and refridgerator were broken. The food at the buffets are not great but the dinners at the restaraunts were okay. Dont expect "amercian" drinks as they only have one kind of beer and one type of wine that is included in the all-inclusive package.
