Arrived at the Barcelo and our first impression was that it wasn't so bad. Room wasn't ready so we went to have lunch. Took a little bit to find something half decent to eat. Everything started to go downhill from there. Food was horrible. We are not overly picky and what we did eat, had no flavour. The buffet area,...

My husband and I returned to the Barcelo Punta Cana for our second time, April 3-11, 2013 and I can say we'll be back again!
