PLAYA BAVARO BEACH is BEAUTIFUL, but this resort is huge without a huge staff to maintain it. Rooms in need of refurbishing. They have been used hard and lack minor repairs everywhere. The large, tile rooms white grout is actually black as they aren't cleaned to par. The shower is large, but not scrubbed. Realize that I settled for this...

Buffet restaurant was very good, I'm fussy and get bored with food easily, however other than eating too much...the food was great and we found nothing at all to...
