First a few things about us: we are a family of four (two girls aged 12 and 6), we usually go to all inclusive family-friendly resorts, always look for family room with (at least) two separate bedrooms, water slides are a must, we love swimming pools, children playground is an advantage. We had it all in Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe!...

No doubt the place, facilities, beach front and restaurants are very good. We spent the whole family a week there and it was great. The negative point is the service. It is just there, one millimetre to rate it as lousy. There are so layback and they show no will to help or a kind of commitment to help and...

I'd ignore the reviewers who either hated or raved about this property. It's hard to imagine that anybody with any degree of patience got absolutely terrible service. It's true that the service isn't up to western 5-star standards, but it's the D.R. and I doubt that exists in that culture. My Spanish is minimal, if that, but I tossed around...
