As an educator, my summer breaks are precious. I am so excited that my summer took me to Barcelo Punta Cana. Upon arrival, we weree greeted with smiles and efficient service. After a long morning of traveling, all I wanted to do was escape into the inviting air conditioned arms of a beautiful room with a gorgeous ocean view. I...

We had a great time overall. We used FunJet and stayed five nights with air for about $2300 from Houston. This included a family consisting of parents and a 14 year old daughter. The hotel is now known as the Barcelo Premium. This will help if you need to refer to it at the airport or to a taxi. First...

Wow! When you look at the hotel online it looks beautiful and the bedroom suites looks amazing. NOT!! Total hype. I booked a suite for my family and I and the room was so tacky. The service was awful. If you want poor food, want to wait for bathroom towels for over 5 hours, sheets and extra pillows for over...

The people were friendly, the service was nice, the 3 pools were refreshing. I have an allergic son who cannot consume milk & peanuts(he will die) so I sent a fax 1 week before to alert them. Their overall food was awful, stale, overcooked even dessert was a disappointment. My son's food was made fresh & tasted better than all...

Been to this resort twice and had a great time both stays. Room was clean, beach is beautiful. Food was not bad, but considering the price of the resort stay nothing to complain about. Beach towels pose a problem because if you do not get there very early morning they tend to run out of beach towels. No problems with...

We were there from Aug 4 - 10, check in was a bit disappointing since our rooms were not ready and had to wait about an hour and front desk gave us the wrong rooms - we had paid for ocean view and we were getting garden view BUT it was the renovated area of the hotel so we were...

A party of eight went to celebrate a friend's 60th birthday. The resort itself has been recently upgraded and was beautiful. But the service was the worst I've ever encountered in all my years of traveling. We were suppose to have 2 beds and our room was a King size bed. After wrangling with them for over 3 hours, we...

Room had 2 twin beds instead of King size like requested. Mattress was still wet with pee. Blood stains on pillow cases. When we finally got a king room the A/C barely worked. The food was average at best and really never felt safe there at all. Upon checkout even with all the problems they staff could have cared less....
