My husband and I checked in and received a free room upgrade and free Wifi, but only for one phone. The wifi didn't work well. Eh, I was on vacation, I could use the break. The room was beautiful, spacious and had a jacuzzi tub on the balcony. The place was clean, and the staff was very friendly. The food...

Amazing resort! Everything was amazing the food, the people and the view! All inclusive made my life so easy. The kids had so many things to do and they loved pirate ship island! Can't wait to go back!

This is our second year in a row staying at this resort and our third year in a row going to Punta Cana. Last year we stayed during an off peak week and very much enjoyed it, but to be honest, the staff were great, just a little slow....but realize where you are people. This year we went over the...

Had a wonderful week during March break at the Barcelo Bavaro Palace. Exceeded our expectations on all levels, food was amazing and plentiful (lobster tails for lunch!) great service from staff everywhere, very clean accomodations and very modern amenities. Drinks were premium quality, beach was beautiful, grounds were beautiful and very well maintained. Could not ask for more, great boutiques,...

This is our fourth year in Punta Cana and our third year at Barcelo. We travel with a large group of friends, each group with kids and adults. The resort is beautifully laid out, with clean pools and sand. Everyone found something to eat at the buffet, even the picky eaters. The kids love the pool, the mini-golf (free before...

Friend of ours had warned us that this place was big but I thought they were exaggerating. This place is literally a small town. There is a trolley you can take to go from one place to another and it takes about 30 min to do the whole round. We were staying closer to the convention center, we had a...

I traveled with a group friends and family of thirty six + we all had a great time, everyone enjoyed it. I liked the most was buffet food, good drinks and nice servers at the pool bar. I will visit again.

Amazing beach, had a bit of seaweed every day but they were good at cleaning it up. Restaurants had great options, but a challenge to get reservations. We just showed up a couple of the nights and they fit us in. Best ones were Italian and Japanese. Service was a bit slower. Staff was friendly and easier to communicate than...

The hotel and beach are beautiful. Food is good (probably not outstanding). Rooms are big, clean and well maintained. We unfortunately had trouble with the check-in and both clerk and supervisor had a 'can't do' attitude. After complaining we got offered spa treatments as compensation that took another hour and three different individuals to book. At check-out my credit card...

First place where we have to pay for wifi, it is not free, and not always working. The Bar's line(!) going slow. All staff were looking for the tips from the beginning, we are living in NY, we 100% know when to pay tips. The resort oversaturated. The sea is full of seaweeds. You will need to find the place...
