Come and rediscover the marvels the Barcelo Bavaro Beach - Adults Only***** hotel has to offer!
We made the best of the trip but DO NOT PAY FOR PREMIUM. It is not worth it. We had oceanview premium and the room is outdated, smells like mildew and they basically just made our bed everyday. I didnt even have face towels in my room. Same buffet food everyday. Same Breakfast food everyday. All the dinner restaurants serve very small portions like kids portions. I went in 2019 and it was 100x better. Now they nickel and dime you for everything.
We were there from July 30th to August 6th. First travel in almost 2 years because of the pandemic and we were pleasantly surprised. It was our first time at this resort and we loved the Adult side although some music with a little more beat would of been nice by the pool. Because of the « spa type music » all day, a lot of people were bringing their own music, all different types so it was a bit wild because of that. That being said, we loved our stay. From the staff, the site, the weather, the food, the cleanliness of the rooms, everything made our stay a GREAT one. The rooms do need a little improvement furniture wise to give them a little more modern look, but even with that we had all we needed and they were always kept clean. We felt safe with all the measures taken because of COVID, even more that some places here in Quebec. We will definitely be back, hopefully soon. We did miss the shows at night and wondered why there weren’t any especially because the theatre area is basically outside. People could have been seated while respecting a safe distance. Hopefully they will start again soon, some other hotels have started them again outside. Thanks to all that work at this hotel for making our stay a great one.…
I booked 3 rooms at the Barcelo adults only the property is huge and beautiful however the rooms upon check in were not clean you could see dust all over the tray by the coffee machine and the cabinet and mini bar was dirty and half stocked with now snacks after being told by the receptionist that it would been fully stocked. It make no sense to go to receptionist and express your concerns because they won’t do anything about it. Also be careful what time of room you book I paid for an ocean view however the only view I got was the back of the bar where you collect your towels. Food wise the best places to eat on property were brisas, chef gourmet and coral, the food at all the other inclusive restaurants were not good.
We had an amazing time at Barcelo Bavaro Beach. The staff was friendly. Room was nice and clean. They kept our fridge stocked. The Beach side is nice, but if you are looking for more activities, the Palace side might be the place for you. But we like to retreat back over to the Beach side. Do upgrade to premium as you have a greater selection of where you can eat on both sides. Take at least part of your first day to familiarize yourself with all the resort has to offer. If you jump right into having fun. You might miss out on what all they to offer. Most importantly ask a lot of questions. There is entertainment boards o. Each side that tells you the schedule of all entertainment that happens wash day. Join I. On the Salsa, meringue, and Zumba classes. There are fun and if you mess up no one knows you there anyway. I did not participate in the swim up pools because I prefer the beach so that is where I spent my time, but that is just my personal preference. I totally enjoyed the food at the Mexican restaurant, French Restaurant, Italian Restaurant, Seafood Restaurant, and Seafood Restaurant. These were are located on the Palace side and you have to do the premium booking to enjoy these. My favorite of these restaurants were the Mexican, French and Italian. On the Beach side the International Restaurant was really nice. I love the short ribs and mash potato. Dessert was amazing. I have the Tres Leche Cake. It was so good, I requested some more for my birthday and it was sent to my room. We did at lot of walking by choice because we are more than we normally do so our goal was 10,000 steps per day. There is a trolley that takes to to and from the Beach Side to the Palace side. I saw a review that complained how far of a distance the other side is. But you don’t have to walk if you don’t want to. The walk is about 5 - 8 minutes so it is not a bad walk. Lastly. We did the ATV tour with the cave and cigar included in the package for $65 a person. There are different people who will try to sell you these packages. We bought ours from our COSTCO rep, but we found out on the beach side in the mall area guess service has it for $55. On the airport they will try to sell it for $50.00 for two people. But you have to spend 1 1/2 hours of your vacation checking out another property for future vacation. Sounded like a timeshare to us, but he said it wasn’t and we did not have to purchase anything. We wanted to control our own time so we did not…
Check in process was super fast, ok room but there where flies everywhere around the bufet making it really uncomfortable and gross. Also no entertainment at all around the pool, we asked for music but they told us no music allowed. I mean really? Wouldn’t recommend staying here.
Worthy resort, with excellent amenities, well prices and attentions. The installations are good, the bars and pools are great. The Spa and hydrotherapy are the best, especially if you´re a premium level guest.
We have stayed at this resort several times and we love the layout however the rooms are getting old. They need upgrading. The windsurfing and catamaran equipment need upkeep. I love sailing but the equipment is in bad shape. The safe in our room kept breaking down. We had to store our valuables in our son's room. The air conditioning was very noisy and when we switched rooms the second one had no controls that functioned. We still had a good time especially because the staff is very nice and I'm an optimist. The resort did a good job of cleaning the beach after the hurricane. The shows are a bit lame and the disco needs more variety. It seemed that the Dj was having more fun than the customers. No clue on how to read the crowd. Still using the same format from other times we visited over the last 6 years. Played the same songs every night for 7 nights.…
Perfect honeymoon stay. everything was pristine as expected especially one week after the hurricane all the staff were polite friendly and efficient and the food and drink service were perfect, We would love to 1 day come back here
it was a pleasure trip, a kind of honeymoon with my wife, we just wanted something nice, fun and peaceful. Also with good food and very good attention from the hotel staff and with very good entertainment, to the delight of us
They did a great job recovering but the beginning of the trip was impossible to enjoy. There were so many issues that we didn't want to come across as nags or complainers. We gave up after a while waiting for things to be fixed and some issues took multiple attempts to fixed.
