Seaweed
Aug 2021
A lot of seaweed unfortunately when I stayed. I know a storm came through a week or so before my stay, but I wished they would have worked more to comb the beach. It made the beach "uninviting".

Beautiful, but beware sellers
Sep 2021
We visited Bavaro Beach in September 2021. There were lots of seaweed, but they have trucks cleaning it.

Beware the sellers! They will ask you to come with them, and try to sell you overpriced souvenirs, activities, and even drugs. The "shopping mall" they try to take you is crowded with other sellers and some threatening people. Don't go with them, tell you're not buying anything, and safely continue your beach walk.

Dirty water, a lot of algs
Aug 2021
Dirty and smelly water, a lot of alg in it. Beach is very nice but you can't go to the sea... Very sad because I think they don't care so much about it.

Average beach
Aug 2021
We have been to some awesome beaches and even if not covered in stinky seaweek Bavaro beach seems average. The beach is narrow, and the ocean is choppy but not enough to enjoy the waves.

Too much seaweed
Aug 2021
So beautiful but the seaweed kills the vibe. Lots of vendors also made it a little hard to relax. Great for walks but not for swimming.

Thrill ride!!!
Aug 2021 • Family
We did the horse back riding and the buggies. We had sssooo much fun!! We rode the horses through a country side. The buggies was more of a thrill ride. Prepare to be full of mud and dirt. But it was one of the most fun memorable experiences I have shared with my husband and my Children. If you are into a thrilling day definitely go for it. You will love it.

Maybe it was the timing, but the beach was not what I expected. The water was murky and there was tons of seaweed. augh

Dominican Fun with the Family!
Jul 2021 • Friends
Pros: Beautiful grounds , easy to get around , good drinks , fun beach activities, variety of restaurants, our room had an upstairs loft which we loved. A lot to do at night: casino, arcade , bowling , shops , sports bar and a dance club . Two water parks which my daughter loved.

Cons: excessive seaweed( you can smell it from the pool) buffet is under staffed and we often sat there without utensils. They did not have a poolside grill and we could not take food from the buffet to eat by our chairs by the pool . (I saw people bringing food out but I was told by the manager no ! )
Air conditioning in the restaurants didn’t seem to work well . A few nights it was uncomfortable during dinner. Some of the staff were friendly others not too much! Covid tests ( go early ) it gets busy . It took us about 21/2 hours to finish everything.
Overall I think it’s a very nice resort !

Beautiful
Jul 2021
Only one word can save to describe this piece of paradise and that is beautiful. After almost 2 years of not taking a vacation, when we finally landed in the Dominican Republic and saw Bavaro Beach we almost cried, tropical paradise!!!

The beach is lined with hotels and some are nicer than others, it can get crowded and noisy at different parts of the day at different times, but still, no complaints!
