“Good value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2012

March 19-26. We had tried The old Barcelo in Varadaro some years ago and we were very happy, but the Bavaro Beach facility was much better. This time we chose the adult part of the complex for a change. We were impressed with the more relaxed atmosphere. This part of the complex is attached to the convention centre. The thinking being that the adult section would be more suitable to convention visitors.
The beach is first class, as is the whole property. It is cleaned every day and the gardens are groomed. An army of very pleasant workers keep this place in great condition. The room was complete in every way. Every thing was neat and tidy and it was kept that way by smiling cleaning staff.
The buffet restraunt had a wide range of food to offer that varied daily.
The 'adult part of the complex and the convention centre are not isolated from the rest of this massive resort and one need only hop on to one of the cute little trains which circulate around the property. I never waited more than five minutes to be picked up, when I could could visit the main building or any other part of the resort. We would not hesitate to recommend this resort to friends.

Room Tip: We were on the second floor of the 2000 block.The three story buildings all have elevators and stair...

Enjoyed everything- the beautiful clean ocean, coral sand, a shady beach, when you want it.
The chef was inventive in food preparation, however, the produce was so fresh and tasty, that little cooking was needed. This included fish, eggs, salad greens, fruit and, especially, olives-enjoyed those very much!
My only misfortune was my knowing of the Russian language. We could not possibly be anywhere next to the guests from Russia- constant swearing (men and women alike) was really upsetting, especially at the dinner table- they do speak loudly to make sure their presence is known.There where too many of them to find a refuge from.
On one occasion a Russian speaking man has appeared in the dining room with his face red and blue, resulted, as I understood, from severe beating.
All this did not enhance our vacation at Barcelo Bavaro Punta Cana. As much as we would love to come back, we would not.
it is a shame, since this vacation spot is perfect for us- a relatively short flight, a short drive from the airport, lovely grounds, the beach is within a minute walk from the rooms, and the coffee is good;)

Room Tip: all the rooms seem to be very close to the beach, which was important for us rooms at the pool are...

My husband and I travelled with another couple to the Barcelo Bavaro Beach at the beginning of March. It was amazing!
We had great travel times and were greeted with excellent service by everyone at the resort! The resort has been almost completely renovated...the bathrooms in your rooms are the only thing left! And even then - they are definitely fine. The maid service was great! Almost every room has an ocean view.
The food was great - and the service was wonderful. We ate all of our breakfasts and lunches at the buffet. We ate at the sports bar twice, and then ate at the four a la carte restaurants that we were allowed.
The beach was extremely clean and absolutely stunning! A real feeling of 'paradise'. The pool was great - a little cool - but it felt good in the hot sun! We had great service around the pool and at the lobby bar!
We felt very safe here - and the security did a great job of keeping the kids out. We really enjoyed the 'adults only'....love my kids but it is so nice to vacation without them!
Overall, this trip far exceeded our expectations. The service was spectacular, the resort was beautiful and we would definitely go back - we're spoiled now. Thank you to all the staff at the Barcelo Bavaro Beach. We are certainly missing it all now that we're home!

We were there from March 3rd to March 17th .

The premises are very nice. Buildings, pools, beach area.

The help at Guest Services ( Evelyn and Esmeralda, namely) is perfect.

Activities, well supervised.

Nice, clean and comfortable room.

Lots of personnel working on the premises.

I just came back from the barcelo bavaro beach resort. It was simply perfect in all the way. The food at the buffet was amazing. They have a lot of A la carte restaurant. The best was chez Gourmet and La Brisas. Try the lobster and the beef medallion. There is also a sports restaurant when you can eat burgers, nachos, etc. You dont need reservation for this The food is serve fast and it's really good before going to the casino who is just near. The discotheque is innovative with a big plasma screen and two enormous bar. I went running along the beach each day and the best beach i saw its in front of the resort. There is a lot of chair at the beach. The room was simply perfect. The bed and huge quantity of pilow is very comfortable. You have a lot of accessories in the bathroom. Shower gel, shampoo and conditionner in the shower, slippers, toothbrush, toothpaste each day, comb, soap on a plate, and more. The maids are really friendly and my fridge was never empty: juice, beers, coke zero, soda, fanta, Lays chips, peanut, etc. They separate the shower and the sink with a door. We had to sink. Air conditioning works really well. Its located near everything, pool, beach. For the A la carte restaurant, most of them, you have to walk from 5 to 10 minutes on a marble finish way with lounge music or you can wait for the train on wheel who transport you at the other place. There is also a tennis court, baseball field, huge soccer field and running field. They serve drink in real glasses and they have famous brands of alcool like Bombay and Kalhua and Bailey's. Everything is clean even the public bathrooms of the resort who I prefer to go instead of my room. The employee always smiling from the gardener to the pasta chef. Overall This resort is maybe 4 or 4.5 easily but it deserve 5 easily and maybe 14 in a Cuba. You should'nt miss this experience if you want the best quality. Sorry for my english. It's not my first language

It looks totally upgraded by the recent pics posted. I went in Aug of 2010 and they were doing alot of construction. The buffet closest to our room had birds flying in and out. They had two night clubs but we were only allowed to enter one (the boring one) There didnt seem to be any people our age there. Just a few on vacation with their family. We were 3 single girls. The staff were very friendly. I was glad to find wendys when we got the the airport to go home. The food was not the best.

We just returned from the Barceló Bavaro Beach and we had a wonderful time. This is a very well run resort, very clean with well maintained grounds, and the beach can't be beat! Lots of Coconut trees for shade. A terrific and very friendly staff from the top management on down. There was a great variety of very good quality food at all the buffets and our experiences at the a la cartes were all very positive. There was something for everyone! This is a great resort for couples and families alike. We can't wait to return!
