Please take this review serious

First, I'll start by telling everyone that cheap carribean was the only helpful and positive thing in our trip. Unfortunately for us, our room was robbed while we were at dinner one night and we got hit pretty hard. We called the hotel staff, and the general manager and security manager showed up and did not seemed at all concerned. We were told that the security cameras did not work and the USB port in our doorknob was also broken. Therefore, the hotel manager was unable to find the employee that broke into our room using a hotel key (no forced entry). I ventured outside the hotel directly to the local police department where I filed a police report. While in the police station, I found out that the ATM at this resort was broken into on our 2 night stay. Where is the hotel security? Upon my return, still no apology or resolution from the hotel management team. The only sympathy I ever received was from the cheap carribean representative at the hotel. Bad food and bad service can be overlooked but security is not to be ignored. I do not blame cheap carribean, I blame Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe for the bad customer service. I ask everyone to please post only honest reviews as we are the eyes and ears of cheao carribean and any other travel agencies. p.s. the safety box in our room had a faulty lock. Per the GM in the hotel, this was caused by the merging of 3 hotel computer systems.

AMAZING!

Positive- My girlfriend and I went there for our little monthly vacation and we were blown away by the service, comfort, amenities, and price. Trust me we are both flight attendants and see our fare share of hotels but this one was amazing. You know the saying, "you get what you pay for" this hotel goes beyond that. From the punctual pick up time from the airport to the check out time it was all an amazing experience. The rooms are very comfortable, big, clean, updated, and they leave cookies and soft drinks as well as beer in your fridge. The beach is beautiful from white sand to turquoise water. The food was pretty good, the buffet had a lot to choose from and the restaurants were really good. We ate at the steak restaurant and the seafood restaurant. I recommend those. Also, book your meal times for the restaurants as soon as you check in because they go by FAST! Another thing the hotel also has tours if you want to leave the hotel. We also did the spa, it was a little pricey but I can say it's the first time I have ever seen my girlfriend so relaxed. The staff is probably the best in my experience. From the beginning all they cared about was making your experience a memorable and enjoyable one. So to you, the reader, if you are looking at two hotels and you see that the Barcelo Palace Deluxe is a little more expensive. Pick it. I promise you you won't regret this one. If you are looking for a cheaper on the Barcelo Bavaro beach is connected to the deluxe. The great this hotel is that both hotels share the same amenities and are connected. Ok so negatives- When you check in it can get a little crowded and confusing especially with the language barrier. Relax and you'll be ok. Also if you don't want a bell man. Tell them no. They seem to want to do it and can feel pressured at times but just say no. Yes the drinks can be weak at times. Solution is drink more! Lol after all it is all inclusive. Also some bartenders if you tip well enough they will "hook you up!" Our flight cancelled and unfortunately had to stay at another barcelo hotel (Barcelo Dominican Beach and it was a nightmare. The rooms were old, dirty, broken, no hot water, broken a/c, and dirty beaches with a lot of people wanting to sell you stuff.) Could not in mind believe how those two hotels are OWNED BY THE SAME COMPANY. All you need to know. Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe or Barcelo Bavaro Beach if tight on money. BOOK IT!

Great Facility, not so great service

Good parts: Great facility. The resort is very beautiful, and the family room was awesome - we have two kids, and the family suite(two good-size bedrooms: one with king bed and the other with two double) worked out perfect. This is the best room we have had on family vacations, and the beds are very comfortable. The swimming pools are beautiful and well-maintained. The beach is long and beauitiful. There are all kinds of activities for different ages - casinos, game zone, water arobics, dance on the beach(with DJ), beach volyball, sailings, Disco, theatre etc. Great food: We love the buffet, and the restaurants. The food has a large variety of selections, and the quality is fantastic. All organic, and tastes great. We ate so much, but never felt uncomfortable as we would do in the US(with the additives, chemicals all that). Poor service: People can hardly speak English, and they appear to be not very friendly, but it may be the cutural thing. Slow at pouring water at the buffet- we did tip often, but it did not seem to help. Very few people walking around the resort asking you to drink. (We did have more of these in the Rivera Maya resort last year.) At check-in, the front desk asked whether we would like some drinks, and we clearly said "Yes", but never got any. :-( They don't take credit cards very well here at the shops. Most of the time they will tell you they want cash, otherwise they have to charge you a whopping 16% tax. Advise: pack your suncreen, as they will cost you a fortune there with the same brand. Avoid shopping(except gift) here will be good. One more thing: when we booked the package, we were promised a $1200 resort credit and I had the impression that I can use it as cash to shop on the resot. That is totally a scam. They are just cupons and you have to purchase things to use them, and I did not find anyone that was willing to take them. Overall, if you don't mind language barrier and are content with limited personal services. this is a great place to go for all-inclusive. It is the best Barcelo property we have been to. By the way, It is only 20 minutes ride from the airport.

things you should know about this resort

It took two hours to check in - not what you want after traveling all day starting in the wee hours of the morning. We are still waiting for our welcome cocktail - that's how slow the service is! Rooms were nice - but the AC was pititful - could not get the room cool even with paddle fans running- difficult to sleep. Food was mediocre at best - even in the specialty restaurants, What is with being dressed up on vacation? Why would men have to wear long pants and no sandals - you are on a beach- totally wrong. None of the staff seemed to speak or understand the English language (except for management) which made it challenging to say the least. Beverage service at meals was extremely painful -getting a cup of coffee or a refill was like pulling teeth. There were no outdoor bars open at night that you could sit at to relax to the sounds, and enjoy the ocean breeze. Why would we want to be indoors - we're in the Caribbean. I guess the entertainment is good - all shows were in Spanish- so there was no point in going to them and they started at 10:00m pm. The 24 hour casino was a joke - a few slot machines (all in spanish) and 5 or 6 table games - and guess what - the same dress code for men as for dinner - long pants and no sandals. While the resort was beautiful and the grounds maintained, we would never go back here or recommend it to anyone. It was definitely not worth the price we paid. The one really nice feature was the swimming pools - they were awsome and extremely clean with plenty of lounge chairs.

What's to Love

It's all-inclusive, all-family-centric and all-Dominican dreamy.

The sugar-white sands of Bavaro Beach - one of the 10 best beaches on the planet.

Anxiety-ousting treatments like the Oxygen Facial & Vichy showers, plus the killer view.

Diving/snorkeling at the coral reefs and ogling all the underwater treasures.

The B-Rooms with the cushy, soft bed and raindance showers.

Teeing off at the signature golf course designed by the inventive architect, P.B. Dye.

 

What We'd Change

This place is huge, and we really wish getting from point A to point B were easier, but hey, a complimentary train makes navigating the complex pretty simple.

 

Why You Should Go

It's just 20 short minutes from the airport - your dreamy Punta Cana vacay will start pronto.

You can hop on a kayak. Or grab a game of badminton. But boredom is never allowed.

The Junior Suite has a Jacuzzi on the terrace. Muy splurge-worthy.

If you don't want to walk, a complimentary train will tote you around the complex.

Lady Luck is waiting for you in the 24-casino. Don't disappoint her.

There are 7 tennis courts - bring your A game and kick some butt.
