My wife and I had a great vacation at Barcelo Punta Cana. Wonderful serviceminded people. The room we stayed in ( deluxe premium ) was good and we had a very nice view from our balcony. Our tours in Sto Domingo were also very well organized. All by all we made a good investment by vacationing in Punta Cana.
