Excellent Adult Only resort

, Orleans, ON
2020-03-19
We resided at the Barcelo Bavaro Beach (Adult only resort) March 8-15th. Our room block #2, 2nd floor was nice, clean & we had an Ocean view. When you walk in, you have a first section and a 3 sliding mirror doors closet with digital safe & shelves. Facing the closet, you have two sinks and then a smaller closed bathroom, tub/shower room. Between the closet/sink/washroom area and the bedroom you have a door. You then access the large bedroom area. The AC which was quiet worked fine for the duration of our stay. We had a king size bed which we found very comfortable. There is a ceiling fan above the bed which we enjoyed. The patio door curtains are very opaque. Our balcony was small, private with 2 chairs small table. Our maid service was excellent, bathroom towels/items... were always replenished when needed. Edward always had our fridge (beers, soft drinks & 1.5 L. water bottles) replenished on a daily basis. The food was excellent at all the locations we ate: Buffet (variety of meats, fish, pastas, cold cuts, breads, cheeses, fresh fruits/vegetables, jams, ice cream, yogurts, ice cream, deserts, condiments, syrups, etc...). We went to the Steak/Internationals, Mediterranean A la Carte restaurants and All were delicious and had a good variety to offer. Reservations for these are made at the Guest service office. The service at all the bars was excellent. The pool was kept clean and the water was clear throughout the whole day. All the long chairs (beach & pool area) are comfortable and appear new. All public washrooms were kept clean. There are no palapas on the beach, if you want shade, look for a palm tree. We enjoyed that there was no long chair reserving. We always had a choice for long chairs at the beach. The location of the Bavaro Beach is ideal for beach walkers. You can walk either way (North/South) for long distances. The Beach is amazing, white sand and a blueish/green ocean water. Wi-Fi was free at the casino (Palace section). There is a small train/shuttle that goes from the adult only (Beach section) to the Palace section (family resort) approx. every 10 minutes, we never waited. We enjoyed this shuttle to go to A La carte restaurants located at the Palace section. The guests are mostly from Canada, USA and Europe. The hotel (Beach section (adult only)) is quiet, no loud music/noise after the daily evening show. We really appreciated the friendly service we received from Miguel at the buffet, Evelyn at the Guest service office and many others. The hard working hotel personnel are ALL wonderful, friendly & give you an excellent service with a smile. They asked for suggestions: we would enjoy an umbrella in the room and also if there could be a piano bar/jazz music, etc… that would be appreciated. My spouse and I will definitely return to the Barcelo Bavaro Beach resort as we had a relaxing vacation at this Adult only resort. [Details]

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Barcelo Bavaro Beach. Great resort - very clean, very well maintained. Loved the fact that it was a smaller section of the larger Barcelo property. Beautiful beach, great food - wonderful selection at all buffets and the a la cartes were delicious. [Details]

Great and very large all inclusive by the beach hotel with two areas, one for adults only. Very diverse and quality food. Very attentive staff. Rooms are just ok, our room was a superior room very spacious but with two double beds, too small to sleep 4 adults. Room cleaneliness could also be improved. Wifi was not free of charge. [Details]

Punta Cana - Barcelo Bavaro Beach

, St Bruno De Montarville, QC
2018-02-20
This was the second time that my girlfriend and I chose this resort. We vacationed here last spring and this time my brother and his wife accompanied us. The facility is huge and tries to accommodate a wide range of tastes e.g. families/adults only section; up-scale boutiques; golf; several restaurants; casino; impressive and modern gym etc. The food is very good whether one chooses to eat at the various restaurants or whether one decides to eat at the main dining hall...food for every taste. The beaches are kept clean and you can walk for miles, safely and without being harassed (a few local entrepreneurs but for the most part respectful). The rooms were spotless and the entire site is kept very clean including the common bathrooms. I was a little disappointed in that some of the restaurants charged 15$ US per person and that there was a 10$ US charge (at some, not all restaurants) if you brought your own wine. I did not experience that last year. There was also a charge for wifi (45 $ US) that was not applied in 2017. Wifi was free at the casino only from 04:00 to 16:00. [Details]

The alacarte restaurants are very good I've always enjoyed them and the buffets are just as good,i have talked with a lot of other travelers there over the past and 99% have been positive.

I especially enjoyed the international and seafood restaurants. The steakhouse was nice as well. The Italian food was a nice setting and the food was fine but wasn't my favourite. I did not enjoy the waiter bringing an ashtray to two ladies in the seafood restaurant that constantly smoked next to our table. Also the adult only section had heavy smoke (not so much in the family section) so if you are a non-smoker be prepared to be around smoke especially in the adult only main bar near the entertainment.

Excellent hotel. Service, cleanliness, beach were all above expectations.

One important comment when booking, if you are upgrading to ocean front, you must upgrade to "premium ocean front" otherwise it's not worth it. If you're on ground floor, you can barely see the ocean. And don't bother with sun deck upgrade, Its not worth it.

Le Gourmet a la carte restaurant was outstanding!
It's a must for all. But in order to really enjoy, purchase a good bottle of wine. House wine is barely drinkable. [Details]

We were a group but we didn't like having to book the A La Carts as there was only late suppers available to us unless we pushed and we went in the 1st hour we arrived told can email them ahead which would have been helpful to know. Coupon book is cheesy and should just be honoured. Drinks were very good and bottled water available everywhere. Loved it for the 3rd time. [Details]

The staff at the Barceló Bavaro Beach provided us with excellent service. The Club Premium upgrade was well worth it. Our only complaint about the hotel would be the soundproofing construction between rooms is terrible. Even if you are normally a sound sleeper you will hear everything your neighbors are doing. I realize it is hard for the hotel to control noise but most of what we heard is normal talking voices. The golf course attached to this resort offered everything we wanted included personal pick up from our building. It was fantastic. [Details]

The strong points
The hotel was very clean & friendly. Most of the entertainment was good.
The weak points
In the seven restaurants that we ate in, we found the food quite tasty BUT in most cases the food was either cold and/or not cooked. My wife sent a lamb dish back 3 times as it was still bleating.She asked for it to be cooked medium well.

Good but not the best value

, Burnaby, Br

The beach is great. The food was good. They did not have the right room for us when we got there and they mostly have 2 double beds they need more king size bed to supply demand. We paid extra for ocean front and it is not worth it. The rooms are clean but the bathrooms are in need of a lift up but it is clean. They only have 2 bars one in the lobby and one by the pool so there is always a big line up bring a big insulated cup, it was nice but not the best value for the money I paid. I was expecting way more. Wifi is available for about US $50 for 7 days. You have to pay extra for better liquor and wine. The house wine is completely horrendous I would not even cook with it . It would ruin the dish. If you can go for less than 1200 all in from Vancouver I would say it is worth it. If not you can get a better deal at a 5 star hotel in Riviera Maya. [Details]
