A group of 12 of us took a trip to Punta Cana last November. We weren't sure what to expect but after some research and reading reviews we gave it a shot.

Great water park but my kids kept scratching their knees with the rugged floor. Barcelo Hotels should remember they are in the Caribbean it's ridiculous to seen the concierge at the check out/inn desk without A/C or a fan in a long sleeve polyester jacket sweating profusely because it is a requirement. The food was awful and the service was...

We were a party of 6, 3 adults and 3 children ages 12-10-6. We specifically asked for rooms next to each other or joining. Upon registering our rooms were in different sections. The hotel (which was at appx 50% capacity) had a difficulty changing our rooms so that we could be close to one another. Once the boys were in...

That resort is from far the best one we've visited over the last couple of years. The numerous on-site activities were cool and appreciated. The pools and public areas were clean and we could feel the efforts the staff was putting in place in order to keep the whole property at its best. The food was good, the room, spacious...

I would never go again and would not suggest. The resort was not up to my standards. The food sucks. Avoid the buffet at all cost if you can. You won't be able to for breakfast or lunch but for dinner do the ala cart restaurants and if you can, do the Asia restaurant. Only a few people spoke English....
