The Barcelo Premiumm in Ounta Cana has been the worst experience ever in my holidays. The Brand "BARCELO" is a really qualified brand and was so disappointing to come to this very old and dirty Barcelo. The personel is very nice but the hotel is really dirty, the food is incredibly bad and has no quality like a real Barcelo.... More

The Barcelo Punta Cana resort in Punta Cana Dominican Republic provided a relaxing getaway for our vacation and impressed both my spouse and I. The staff were really well informed about some of the great activities going around the resort and were extremely NON-persuasive. The fruit bar (free) had us up every morning enjoying fresh pineapple and other melons (you... More

We recently spent a week at the resort. It was our first time staying on this side of the island and we loved it!!! While we were somewhat concerned with what to expect based on the reviews we read our concerns were put to bed once we arrived at the resort. Even though the resort was pretty large the overall...

We had a great vacation at the Barcelo Resort in the Dominican Republic. The only thing that wasn't great was the food. No seasoning to the food and sometimes dry or over cooked. But if you want a great resort for rooms, hotel, pool and views, it the place to be. We had a great time. We would go again!!

I recently returned from staying at the Barcelo Punta Cana. Upon arrival to the hotel, the front desk staff informed us that they didn't have our reservation. Luckily I brought all paperwork from Expedia, so that was resolved rather quickly. Our room wasn't quite ready so we took a walk around the grounds and returned to the front desk about... More
