GreenLeaders Platinum level

The Barcelo Bavaro Beach - Adults Only*****hotel is located on one of the 10 best beaches in the world, in the Punta Cana area of the Dominican Republic. This dreamy hotel has reinvented itself after a complete renovation to become an exclusive hotel for adults only.

The hotel offers first class rooms 80% of which are located right on the beachfront. This makes it the most perfect place for a romantic getaway.

Enjoy the exquisite range of cuisine on offer at the hotel through the Barcelo All Inclusive Programme with its Caribbean Buffet, Chez Gourmet and La Brisa restaurants; 9 a-la-carte restaurant options: Chez Gourmet (international), La Brisa (Mediterranean), El Coral (fish and seafood), Santa Fe (meat), La Dolce Vita (Italian), Mexico Lindo (Mexican), La Fuente (Spanish), Kyoto (Japanese) and La Comedie (Gourmet - additional charge except for Club Premium guests).

Visit the facilities where you can find different options to fill your days: football pitch, tennis court, swimming pool, golf course, water sports, wellness centre, theatre and casino. This exclusive resort set on a virgin beach welcomes you with a cocktail, spoils you with drinks by the pool and offers you a 45 minute hydrothermal circuit, per person once during your stay. There are also 2 massage beds in the pool area (at an additional charge).

Staying at this hotel also grants guests access to the facilities of the Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe, a hotel which shares some of its services and facilities.

This hotel is one of the very few in the country that boasts the international BLUE FLAG for compliance with the standards required by the non-profit non-governmental organisation the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE).

Come and rediscover the marvels the Barcelo Bavaro Beach - Adults Only***** hotel has to offer!

The food is awful… that may be an understatement. Gnats and flies were swarming the food in the buffet. Smallest portions I’ve ever seen. Not many options, nothing is seasoned. People were stealing food from the buffets and taking it back to their rooms. Only restaurant worth visiting is Kyoto. The bars were serving children underage the whole time we were there, even though the kids had different color wristbands. Food allergies are not welcomed. No employees had any idea what gluten free meant. Practically no one is bilingual here, so freshen up on espanol. The beaches were full of seaweed and the water was mostly brown, not like the crystal blue bahama waters. All of the employees had an attitude and had no common sense whatsoever. I feel like a 5 year old would’ve understood me better. We tried to order room service and the hot dog roll was a rock and not even a roll in general. All of the desserts were pretty looking however one bite and i couldn’t even swallow it. Any activities for the kids were a rip off and even more money you had to spend. The water parks were small and worth maybe 15 minutes of my kids time. The slides also had cracks in them that left bruises on the kids. The wave pool never turned on. Take into consideration…

Hotel's Favorite
We are staying here now, through 1/2/2021. I have been impressed over and over with this place so far. Food is great, even at the buffet, we have eaten at two restaurants for dinner at this point and have more reservations through the week. Food is fresh. Staff takes CoVid precautions and they serve you, you can QR code’s and every wears a mask. The guests are all asked to use hand sanitizer and temp checked before entering the restaurants. This is our honeymoon and the staff has done several things to make it extra special from champagne in our room and cute shirts to discounts at the spa! Checking in went great too, luggage was sanitized before it touched the staff’s hands. We have the all inclusive package at the adults only side and it amazing. I am so glad they reopened just before we came and they just reopened La Brias too, which was a delightful dinner our first night. We didn’t have hot water at first but asked for it to be turned on and within 30 mins we had hot water. Since this side was closed for a while it makes sense things were off. They do want you to enjoy your time and have been very nice. I’ll add a update when we leave.

This was an absolute GREAT resort, I went for a girls weekend getaway and had a blast! HUGE thank you to Raifel Bernardo Pena a staff member from the buffet and La Breeza...his professionalism and attention to detail was outstanding. He was always helpful and made our visit so worth it, because of how amazing he and all the staff was I will definitely be returning. As a matter of fact I can't wait to come back :-) I also love how you can go between the resorts, they have a golf cart or a cart like train you ride in (it's not enclosed so I felt safe taking it) that shuttles you around which is quite fun and convenient and everyone was masked up which showed me that they took the pandemic serious and wanted to ensure our safety.

Resort is absolutely gorgeous but the lack of attention to food safety is concerning! The selection of food at the buffet was assorted, yet the food was cold! My husband, myself and my daughter all suffered from food poisoning and were isolated to our room for 2 days! Disappointing!

The resort is closed (again) and we were not warned prior to our arrival, despite the resort closing several days before our arrival. I would have booked another adults only hotel as the palace side of the resort is absolute chaos during COVID. I’m disappointed Barcelo told us it would be open when we called and they even advertised the reopening on social media. I’d highly recommend looking elsewhere if a relaxing, adults only experience is what you are looking for, as this resort has twice proven they do not care about the guest experience.

Dear Guest, We sincerely appreciate the time you spent to share your comments regarding our Barceló Bavaro Beach adults only hotel, our guests' feedback is of utmost importance to ensure our demanding standards of service at all times, please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience you may have experienced during your stay. We realize Covid has put a big stain on everyone, and rules change regularly. Sometimes decision must be taken, even do planned differently.

Please realize things change faster than can get communicated. Thank you once again for making us your choice hotel, we certainly look forward to serving you again and to have the opportunity to exceed your expectations in a not too distant future. We sincerely hope that you enjoyed your stay at the Bavaro Palace, taking into consideration that it features different Adults Only areas, such as a pool, a pool bar and the Coffee Bar. Kind regards Sandy Pfeil
