My sister and I, we are back again at the Barcelo Bavaro Palace after a 4 years absence.... We are thrilled to be back at our "favorite resort in Punta Cana". After 8 years visiting the area twice a year, and visiting several other competing 5 Star Resorts looking for our favorite one, I must say that our search is...

Excellent all inclusive resort. Couldn't ask for much more. Great service, food and drink, beach. Lot's to do or nothing to do depending on what you want. Would highly recommend this resort to anyone.

Hard to get drinks. If you don't upgrade to premium the alcohol is awful (premium was hard to get even though upgraded). Not even close to the best all inclusive we've stayed at. However, the beach is beautiful and massage at the spa was amazing!!

Our family just spent a week at this lovely resort. Overall it was very nice; though be prepared for 1-2 hour wait upon check in. Rooms are clean and spacious! The food was ok. Better than some cruise lines, but your typical buffets. The restaurants are slightly better, but you will need to reserve those as soon as you check...

Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe – I was nervous about this resort because after reading many reviews online people either loved it or hated it. I think that the people that hated it probably haven’t traveled much and felt some culture shock. If you expect a vacation in the Dominican Republic to be just like a trip to Florida, then stay...

My wife and I recently booked a trip through Booking.com for 2 adults and 2 children at the Barcelo Bavaro Palace in Punta Cana in mid-April. Our high expectations for this trip were quickly crushed when we were denied a room because their system had a reservation for two adults only, when we clearly booked a room for four. After...

Beautiful Resort! Much to offer. Something for everyone! It's a big place that isn't so spread out that you need a tram every time you go anywhere. Courteous service and good food. There is something to offer everyone at this resort.

Our stay overall, very good. You can't expect for the this place to be perfect because of the people coming & going 24 hours a day there. Even the little things to complain about can't override the overall score. The resort is a great getaway indeed, and will go again, but not on spring break (to many teenagers), maybe this...
