“5-day stay at Barcelo Bavaro Beach, Punta Cana, Dominican Rep”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2012

Pros: excellent location, nice long and wide beach,
white sand, sea protected from waves (you could easily swim),
friendly staff.

Cons: the food was ok but not great.
I had "all inclusive" and the buffet was fine as far variety,
but the quality was so-so. The "pay" restaurants ($15 per person),
were not much better, unfortunately.
The sea-food and Mexican resturants were below buffet level,
while the Spanish was better.
I would recommend to go to those only if you have a coupon
to get a free meal. (There were some who had those coupons,
but I did not get the chance to have one, so I paid.)

I had to wait until about 4:30 PM to get to my room,
while check-in time was 3:00 PM.

Other: some friends of mine at the Family Deluxe had cockroaches
in their rooms, but my room at the Adults Only hotel was clean.

“Gorgeous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2012

Sand was very fine, no shells on the beach, water was pretty clear (not like Grand Cayman, but it's the Atlantic), not a lot of seaweed either. Loved it, and I'm not a beachgoer usually.
