Having only arrived 15 mins earlier, I was surprised to learn that the first available dinner reservation at any of the restaurants on the property would only be on our last night, and...

We traveled with our children, 10 and 7. We were expecting much more than we received. This is an expensive resort, and we paid for the Premium level. The Premium check in process is great, and the breakfast in the Premium room is great as well. The beach, ocean and pool area were fantastic along with the waitresses and bartenders....

Regular theater shows in the evening. The Cons: Food is very bland and mediocre. Lots of stupid rules - for example, you get towels in...

We were guests at the Barcelo Bavaro Palace from March 18th to March 25th. My husband and I travelled with our two children (7 and 9) and stayed in a Family Suite by the Barcy Water Park. This is our fifth (or possibly sixth?) visit to this resort and once again we were extremely pleased with the service and amenities...

Great family vacation. Excursions are a must. Hard to get restaurant reservations but that should be expected. Beautiful beach, wonderful people. I would like to have more spices food options but that's not important. Would go back!
