We had the best vacation at Barcelo Bavaro Palace! It was everything we were looking for. The only thing I wasn't thrilled about was how far we were from the beach and pool. Other than that thought it was a great value.We came home so relaxed.. Would love to go back to a Barcelo for our destination wedding.
