We had been to the Barcelo Solemar in Cuba and that was just fine, so we new what to expect. We were very pleasantly surprised how nice this resort turned out to be. It is not new,but it is well maintained and I reminded myself that it is a four star resort. After a little confusion at reception due to...

When your bathroom and bedroom at home are better than the ones in your hotel, it is a sign that something is wrong with the hotel you are staying at. Cleaniness was deficient. Bathtub was damaged and I still don't know whether I was using soap or shampoo for my shower since it was not specified. I killed a cockroach...

Where do I start? We reserved and paid for ocean front, when we arrived they had no ocean front rooms. We were traveling with another family and we were on the other side of the property. We were both given the "best" rooms. The rooms were dirty -we unfolded the couch for one of the kids and I would not...

Room was dilapidated and shows quite a bit of wear and tear; we pointed out several issues to no avail. Temperature in the room was hard to control -always clammy --too cold at night, too hot during the day. Beds are awful --you're sleeping on hard plastic. They do have a great beach, however, there's plastic and trash along it...

Let me start by saying that we were wary of this property right from the first reviews we started reading when in the initial stages of planning this trip weeks prior to departure. It seemed very odd that the reviews were so extreme. You either got a fantastic holiday or the holiday from hell. Well we gambled and lost. The...

I want to begin by saying that I spent almost a week researching hotels for our January DR vacation. I literally read every single review, compared the prices and finally choose Barcelo!

Barcelo Punta Cana has a good installation but this advantage is overridden by the mediocre quality of its help, which by the way is too few for so many people. We went for a long weekend and thought to enjoy a nice dinner in the Japanese restaurant Kyoto. The Hibachi offers chicken, fish or shrimp and the 4 of us...
