We had a very smooth booking experience with Expedia and received a confirmation email from Chateau Del Mar soon after. We arranged hotel transfers a few days prior to arriving. Our condo was a 2 bedroom with air conditioning in the bedrooms. The property was beautiful(pool/bar, main office right by the entrance). Manuel and Freddy were present through our stay and very helpful arranging taxi and making reservations. We hung out by the pool one day and we even got treated to fresh coconut!! Apparently nearly all the rooms were booked in the property yet it never felt busy to us! It was never too loud for us. You can hear some music from the resorts nearby but again for us we never had any problems at night etc.
The location is phenomenal! literally outside the property is the beach. Seapro diving company is across the street and then on the beach is a devine restaurant, Conoa. They have beach chairs that we laid in nearly every day we were in DR. The food is really good too! There is a plaza that contains atleast 4-5 restaurants including a bakery (Dalias) that has great coffee and pastries. They also have 2 grocery stores that sell an assortment of daily supplies. We always felt safe walking around even at night.Our room was great and bedrooms were cool. We had to turn on the fan in the living room and kitchen.
Very large complex but it all flowed well. Restaurants were nice with good themes. Rooms were well equipped and beds very comfortable. Beach cabanas were rented for $40 per day and were comfortable but the attendants were less than attentive and lessened the experience. Beach is terrific, ocean was rough and we could not swim as the waves were to high. Even though site was very large and spread out the trams that come around made getting from place to place convenient.
The facilities were incredible! Clean and great staff- very accommodating! The beach is one of the best! Clean with beautiful mature palms for shade. The water sports were easily accessed and fun. The drinks primo!
Ruben Beras was operating the restaurant/bar on the day of our stay. He did an outstanding job as our server and bartender. We both remarked about what an outstanding ambassador he was for the hotel. He really made us feel welcome. Congratulations on having such a terrific person on the hotel staff!

Overall the vacation was wonderful. The beach and pool was wonderful. Buffet was ok. Restaurants on premise were less than desirable. Not much option and were closed several of the nights. We only ended up going to the Tex Mex as the other ones were either not open or did not look good. If you want just a relaxing vacation this place is great. Age of people were older so not much craziness happening pretty quite and laid back.
From start to finish the hotel was perfect. Service was impeccable. Restaurants were abundant and the food was plentiful and very good. The beach was the best I have ever experienced. I had never experienced previously walking on the beach or in the water where there was nothing but sand. No shells or rocks to step on, just beautiful sand. And the ocean water temperature was probably 70 degrees. We did the zip line experience which was equally fantastic and I would highly recommend. There wasn't a negative thing to say about the overall experience.
There was entertainment shows to enjoy (which we did) as well as dance classes, aerobics, unlimited golf (very nice course I might add) and just about anything else you could imagine.
On the eastern side of the Dominican Republic, the town of Bavaro was originally settled by those working in the nearby resorts on the beach. The town quickly became a center of services and also boasts 10 miles of seashore. Hundreds of hotels, as well as shopping centers, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and medical services, can be found here.
