Stayed here for a week. The grounds are beautiful and we'll kept. But the language barrier was hard to get around. The WiFi didn't work even if you payed for it. The food is horrible! Many travelers have said this in their reviews and I must agree 100% !!

Loved this resort! Beautiful beach, clean grounds, comfy beds. We stayed 8 nights, 9 days. Perfect length of time to relax and do other activities as well. Loved that it was an adults only and that we had access to the Palace as well.

We truely had a wonderful stay at this resort. Outside of the food, which was fairly disappointing, there is nothing we could find fault with. The staff were all friendly, I don't think we passed one staff member who didn't smile and say 'Hola', including the grounds keepers and cleaners. When we had a issue with the room, the Premium...

Food was average, place was clean, workers looked unhappy and overworked. Beach was nice! Entertainment was pretty bad, club was pitiful. Rooms were ok. Overall was a relaxing trip. Best restaurant was the Japanese. Make reservations as soon as you get there. This hotel is considered the best in area btw.

I read all the bad reviews a few days before we headed on our trip and was a bit concerned about what we had gotten ourselves into. When we arrived, I quickly discovered there was nothing to worry about here. This is a lovely, clean, friendly, happy resort that my family and I enjoyed for a week. First thing you...

Overall a great vacation. The resort was huge and many activities to do (water sports, tennis, paddle ball, golf, mini-golf arcade, bowling, casino). However, staff was very unenthusiastic and stand-offish. Al la carte dinners were great, buffet was large but so-so. More of a family resort as there were lots of families but adult only section was nice. There were...

We just returned from a week long vacation at the Barcelo Bavaro Palace in Punta Cana. Everything was great! The hotel staff were so nice and accomodating, No complaints about the food. There is so much good quality food to choose from that I cannot understand how anyone could complain. There is a delicious array of vegetables and tropical fruit,...

This is a great hotel with an amazing staff! I was really impressed with the location, all the hotel facilities, the night shows, the food quality and the drinks. The wine selection was vast and affordable. I have to make a special mention to the staff. All of them were so polite, helpful. It just made the vacation unforgettable. Thanks!
