Adults only section- close to beach, lots of do

Posted 20-Aug-2017
The adults only side, while certainly not as up to date as the larger family side of the resort, is excellent location to the beach with plenty of chairs and palm trees for shade. There are lots of activities for guest throughout the day and each evening. The entertainment staff are fun and engaging.

Nice hotel, great beach

Posted 18-Aug-2017
Se stayed at the "only adults" Barcelo Bávaro Beach, which was a good decision since we were travelling without our kids. The beach is excellent

Luxurious!!

Posted 17-Aug-2017
We travel quite a bit and this is probably the most luxurious resort we've ever experienced! I didn't realize how much of a difference the Adults Only option would make, but it's enormous! No waiting for ANYTHING. Always a chair, always room in the pool, always a spot on the beach. No lines at the buffet, no waits at the restaurants, no waits at the bar. No bad seats at the shows No hurrying to get anywhere before the crowd might be there!! Absolutely incredible!! Beautiful grounds and impeccable service. Great food and fun drinks. Really, an unforgettable experience. We LOVED it!!

DR Vacation

Posted 15-Aug-2017
Pros: The pool, beach and food from Chaz Restaurant.
Cons: Cleaning services in the room, the bar and food offered complimentary. Update bathrooms & linens, I had a neck ache because the pillows were so flat.
Location: It was about 10 minutes away from a small shopping mall, clubs & restaurants.
Refrigerator and TV did not work, called and they said they were sending tech, never showed, finally the second day they sent someone, my room was only cleaned once out of the 5 days I stayed there and they never came to re-stock water and chips, all the mini bar offered was soda juice and beer, and for complimentary snacks, all we got was 2 tiny bags of fritos and tiny bags of pnuts. Shower was outdated and the water did not come out strong. I never received my $100 expedia VIP gift towards SPA, neither they mentioned anything about our GOLF vouchers, which were included with my stay.

first time at a all inclusive resort in Punta Cana

Posted 15-Aug-2017
The staff and food was great. Everyone was very accommodating. I enjoyed how close the pool was to the beach. Maybe they should consider having some background music by the pool area, whether it's tropical music or some salsa and merengue ... not loud music, but something in the back ground when there is no entertainment. It was a great time ...

Very satisfied, but it wasn't perfect.

Posted 13-Aug-2017
The hotel and beach are both beautiful and make the trip. Overall the service is great too as most employees are happy and want to please you. Of course there were some exceptions... Food was good enough, but didn't make the vacstion. Had some bumps in the road with our room which ultimatey led to an upgrade to an ocean view which was stunning. I would come back to this resort.

A vacation close to perfection

Posted 12-Aug-2017
We bought this vacation package really without knowing what we would find there. The most courteous staff I have ever experienced around the world. Excellent design and decorating of all spaces. Great variety and food quality. There is no time to get bored - there so much to do between animation teams, beautiful beaches, great and quiet swimming pool area, bowling center, spa, high quality shopping experience, the most amazing themed restaurants, nightly shows with very high quality productions, cleanliness of the room, in close proximity to the ocean... it was the best vacation me and my wife have had in years while we were celebrating our 39th Wedding Anniversary! Thank you, staff and personnel at Barcelo Bavaro Beach. We'll be back!
