The food is so so terrible!! I was with a group of 30 and every single person got sick or had severe diarrhea just a few days into it. The buffet is equivalent to 5 day old food at the cheapest chinese buffet you can find in the U.S. I walked in a few times to a retched odor from...

This hotel is a great place to stay ! I have no complaints what so ever.the food is delicious and the food staff couldnt have helped me more with the different cuisine choices and their cultural names. The rooms were amazing and very modern which exceeded my expectations, and the best part of all, the pool and the bars !...

We stayed at the Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe for the third time from April 12 - 19, 2014. As always, it did not disappoint! You should take the negative reviews with a grain of salt as this is, by far, one of the best resorts in Punta Cana. My husband and I were married there in 2013 and the group...
