We had the best vacation. So much to do. Beautiful beaches and pools. How wonderful to have a water park and wave pool on site. Food was delicious. You need to look a bit, but wonderful food is available. No complaints from our teens

Hotel's Favourite
We were part of a group of Philadelphia Eagles fans who stayed here last week. It was so much fun! I wasn’t sure what to expect, but the Barcelo was outstanding. First, during this pandemic, they were super conscientious about cleaning. Our room was immaculate when we arrived, and was cleaned to spotless everything day. Public areas were constantly, though not intrusively, cleaned. We were hesitant, worrying about covid, but I was super impressed by how seriously it was handled here. Our room was huge, a beach front suite. Plenty of room, great balcony, lots of storage space. The frosted bathroom door was a little odd, but I was with my husband so it was fine. The buffet was good some days, ok on other days....about what you’d expect from a buffet. We tried the Japanese and Spanish restaurants and were blown away! They were both so good! All the food was delicious, servings were immense, waiters/cooks were top notch. The beach and pool were wonderful. Tons of beach/pool loungers and plenty of shade, too. We spent hours swimming and sunning. I’d definitely recommend the Barcelo Bavaro Palace. It was far and away one of our favorite vacations.

After reading some of the reviews on here I was a little nervous. The resort is beautiful. The beach is to die for. I got the premium level so I had my breakfast and lunch Room service at no charge and did the restaurants for dinner. I got the premium level sea front Room and it was absolutely stunning overlooking the beach. I have found everyone here at the resort to be quite accommodating and friendly. I had no trouble checking in, there is a separate Room for premium level. I love walking so I did not mind the walking.

The resort is beautiful but they don’t have friendly reception. They whisk you off to your room but do not show you around. Your room is about 1/2 mile from the lobby. You need a reservation for dinner or you are stuck going to the buffet. The staff are nice but the food isn’t good and it’s cold. The pool and outside bars close at 6 pm. There is no food options in between meals, no snacks etc. Do not forget anything because their gift shop is 4x the price of a normal store not to mention the staff are rude. The al a cart restaurants are great and the wait staff are excellent. The beach is beautiful, just pack snacks and be ready to walk!

Traveled to Barcelo Bavaro Palace for friends' wedding 2/21. Rooms were clean, pillows were a little stiff, but we still slept well. If you drink a lot of water, keep your water bottle from the room and get it refilled at the bar. Buffet food was good, restaurants were open for dinner but reservations were a must. The French and Spanish restaurants were really good! Beach and pool areas are clean and beautiful. Staff wore masks, guests are required to wear masks at buffet, temperature checks are done at all eating entrances, and sanitizer stations are everywhere. Service in buffet seating sometimes feels like staff is "on island time" so we'd bring our own drinks in. Fantastic service from front desk with Manuel, Miguel the waiter, and Elizabet for massage and many others. I look forward to returning!
