    Adult Side of Barcelo Bavaro Beach

    Overall the stay was great. The staff was more than accommodating and super friendly. However, the rooms in 4000 series building need major updating. When showering, water splashes all over the floor. The toilet and shower are together and it is extremely small. The mini bar is very mini :) and leaked condensation all over the floor each time you opened the door. I expected more from a "5 Star" hotel. The adult side of this resort lacks the shopping, stores, swim up pool bar and bigger restaurants. I would have rather stayed on the Palace side instead of the adult side to take advantage of those amenities. However, there is a train or golf cart that takes you to the Palace side.

    The best hotel, great staff and great management. Will be back. Hope some A la carte Restaurants in Palace will be allowed back in the future for Barcelo Bavaro Beach guests as well. Chez Gourmet was the best this time.

    A Place to Remember and to comeback

    Top Level service, it starts once you arrive at the property. The food was good, some restaurants surpassed our expectations and one thing that stood up from the trip is how clean the place is, the attention for details and the great service by the employees. You have access to the whole property at Bávaro Palace which is a +. Definitely will recommend and will visit again.

    I was a little nervous making reservations after reading some of the negative reviews. Please don’t pay any attention to the negative reviews that you see here. There are some very self entitled people that bring homegrown rude behavior to other countries. I recently stayed at the Barcelo Bavaro Palace Adults Only and I had the most wonderful time. The property is immense and beautiful!! The beach was perfect! Upon check in, we were greeted by personnel at the premium office. Check in was perfect and superb! Upon check in, we made reservations for a different restaurant each night. My favorite restaurants were Kyoto Japanese, La Brisa Mediterranean, and the Italian restaurant. Loved the spa. I highly recommend giving yourself the whole package. Left Punta Cana feeling relaxed! The buffet at the adults section was fantastic. Personnel were so friendly and greeted us with a smile each and every time. A very BIG THANK YOU to “El Clásico” who made sure our mini fridge was stocked with drinks and amenities each and every day and who greeted us even from afar each time we saw him at work while we walked to the pool and the buffet. I highly recommend that one purchase the premium level. It’s worth it! The only wish i have is that La Piña bar should offer basic cocktails and beer to premium level clients without charge as it’s close to the beach and adults only rooms. One has to walk far to the pool side bar that offers all inclusive drinks. I highly recommend Barcelo Bavaro Palace!! I will definitely be returning in a few months!
