Adults only section is nice.

Posted 18-May-2015
Pros: The surroundings were beautiful and room was nice and comfortable. Hoyo 19 food was excellent.
Cons: swim up bar for adults only section, food available 24/7
I didn't find the hotel services people easy to work with. At different times, they did not understand English well to assist you and just walked away. One of our restaurant reservation was screwed up (they had split our group for 4 people on 1 day and 5 on the next day)! It made no sense to me to have a swim up bar at the family section and not at the adults section. The staff that conducted the outdoor activities didn't seem to interact much with the guests unless you participated in the activity and were not not really visible unless you hung out at the pool area.

Great Girlfriends Getaway

Posted 18-May-2015
Pros: Our access to all the amenities available at our resort, adults only Barceló Bavaro Beach, plus all the services located within entire complex!!
Cons: Consistency between bar service around the entire resort- "Revolution" drink offered in Sports Bar, delicious beverage- not known/offered elsewhere.
Location: My 5th trip to Punta Cana; so I had experienced many off site tours (Dolphin Experience, Ecological & Animal Parks)- would recommend to do it all.
We were a part of a Girlfriends Getaway for May 2-9, 2015. We specifically chose Barceló Bavaro Beach, as an adults only, all-inclusive location for our Ohio, USA, to Punta Cana trip. With 9 ladies having varying interests, Barceló Bavaro Beach was the best location to meet everyone's interests: playing tennis daily, catching a round of golf, beach walking, pool lounging, shopping at the Palace mall area, dropping some coin in the casino, catching some great evening shows both at our resort & at the Palace amphitheater and treating our taste buds to scrumptious delights at numerous a la carte restaurants (our favs were La Brisa & La Chez Gourmet- both included with no extra charge). Our favorite hidden gem was Hoya 19 located in the golf center; a wonderful place to relax after a round of golf OR where we found a slower pace locale for lunch for a la carte dining-- delightful desserts- the best! For small or large groups; staying at Barceló Bavaro Beach is the best way to enjoy adults only resort with access to the amenities of a larger complex, all within walking or a short tram ride- for those who may have mobility issues. Looking forward to going back!!!

Disappointed

Posted 16-May-2015
Pros: Beach & Pool
Cons: Food is bad
Location: Location good
Beach and pool are wonderful, that's it. Food is bad, service is poor, drinks are not worth the long wait. No service on the beach, so you walk to the one and only pool bar. Wait 15 min for two workers to serve the long line. Rooms are not what you would expect nothing was. Go somewhere else

Great hotel with great service and awesome beach!

Posted 16-May-2015
We had a great stay here. Would definitely go back! The staff was very friendly, room was amazing with a great view of the beach. It is a large resort but everything is easily accessible. Plenty of food choices. Dinners were amazing, breakfast and lunch buffets were not spectacular but that is being very nit-picky! Juan, at the egg station in the Miramar breakfast buffet is the man!! Overall we loved it!!

Reasonable vacation spot

Posted 12-May-2015
When booked, we requested King Ocean View. What we got was two double beds and a first floor unit set back - no real ocean view. When we mentioned it to the front desk, they told us it was only a "request" and we had to wait until everyone else checked in - but we were already there!!! Two days later we got moved to a king room, same set back, no true ocean view. Plus: no steps, easy walkout right to the pool. Give and take I suppose. Overall staff was good, were very interested in hearing about our complaints right before we left before posting anything online. It's an average all-inclusive. The nice part was the adults only section if you prefer a vacation away from the kids.

Our honeymoon

Posted 12-May-2015
Absolutely perfect! We had a blast and can't wait to go back. The staff is so friendly and personable. Delicious food with plenty to choose from and the grounds are gorgeous. We actually tried to figure out how we could live there. 😊

Great experience in Punta Cana

Posted 06-May-2015
We just returned from our first visit to Barcelo Bavaro Beach, and it won't be our last!!! From the time we arrived until we left everything was amazing. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. The hotel is very beautiful, from the grounds, to the pool to the beach. It is a very large complex, and we enjoyed the fact that we had access to the Palace Deluxe, where all of the action was, but could retreat to the Adults Only were things were more calm, but just as fun. The rooms were spacious and clean, cleaned daily and the mini bar was restocked everyday, free of charge. There are plenty of activities to keep anyone busy, but you also could just relax if you wanted to. Plenty of selection at the buffets, nothing extravagant, but enough variety I think to please everyone. There are also a la carte restaurants of all kinds if you're looking for a more elegant atmosphere. I recommend booking your reservations early for the restaurants as the settings fill up quickly. I also had a very nice and relaxing massage at the u spa, highly recommended!!! Many people that we met had been there before, which is a attribution to Barcelo Bavaro Beach!!! Can't wait to go back!!!!

Great 5 day getaway!

Posted 06-May-2015
The most beautiful beach you will ever see! Food was average but no problems. The sit down restaurants are much better and a must! Eusebio- poolside bartender was amazing!
