    Must Visit

    I went out here for a Labor Day party weekend. It was so beautiful. The staff are very friendly and super accommodating. Everyone for the most part speaks English though I speak Spanish so I mainly spoke in the native tongue. MAKE SURE if you are a MYBARCELO member you get your welcome gift and your welcome and departure service. I practically had to beg for my welcome gift and I had no welcome or departure service at all. The TV in the room was not working properly because they didn’t give me the right remote but I literally only slept in my room so I wasn’t upset. However my last day the people above me flooded the restroom and they never came down n cleaned my bathroom of the water so I had to wear sandals and put towels in the bathroom. Overall an 8/10

    Not a good place for singles.

    Pros: great location Beautiful views and plenty of seating by beach and pool. Rooms are large, fridge in room with drinks that are free. Beach area is cleaned and well maintained Rooms are super cold. Cons: No shaded seating on beach. No drink or food access on beach. Only one place to eat and food is terrible. For dinner you have to make reservations and there is only 2 options for dinner. (more options on family side.) Rooms are not cleaned, found decaying lizard in bathroom. No alcohol in drinks. Poor service by pool and bar areas. Staff seem annoyed to help you. Restaurants are hit and miss. Food is only available at specific times. You can order room service but you have to pay. No wash cloths in room. This resort is not single people friendly. Everywhere i went for dinner, the host or hostess would make a sad face at me and ask me about having a date. I was so annoyed that at one point i started telling people i was a widow so they would shut up and leave me alone. Lol. Excursions were great but the hotel screwed up and put the wrong name and room number when booking them. Because of their mistake,the drivers were looking for the wrong person  and Ialmost missed an excursion. I want to be able to sit on the beach, eat and drink. That was not possible due to the lack of shade and access to food and drink. After 2 days of being there, I was anxious to leave as there was not much I could do. I will not choose this resort again. If youre a single person, dont pick this one.

    Beautiful beach but rooms need overhaul

    The common areas and grounds are stunning. Good airport transfers. Pay the extra $$ for premium and stay ocean front. It gives you a concierge to book dinner reservations. Tub/shower was hard to get in and out of and extremely dated. Hard time getting wash cloths. Mattresses were good but room is very dated. AC was either an iceberg or hot, so we layered up to stay comfortable. Hair dryer, mini fridge and shower gel dispenser would not work. Reported and nothing done. People are friendly but very few speak much English. Practice your Spanish! Restaurants don’t make guys wear pants except Dolce Vita. It was soo humid and they made my guys change to pants to eat in restaurant. Entertainment was pitiful in the evenings. Employees frolicked around dancing to random music. 😂 We made the most of things and made memories. I guess that’s what counts.

    Barceló Bavaria Beach

    Needs lots of updates in rooms! No way older adults can take a bath. Only has bathtub that is really high off the floor without any bars to hold on to. Very dangerous. Hardly any English speaking on staff. Towel situation at pool is awful. Wash cloths are hard to get. Grounds & pool are beautiful.

    Barcelo Bavaro beach was a great getaway

    I absolutely loved it. It was my first time in Punta Cana and it was one of the best experiences ever. The resort was amazing for a trip and I was able to find any thing I was looking for. The beach's water was amazing, much better than another resort I visited this trip as well. Would recommend this resort anytime.
