We chose a huge 2 room suite in building 1 overlooking the quiet pool and with a nice view of the beach and ocean. Our maid was a sweet, pretty young lady named Llayssia Avias Caro. She was... More

The hotel itself needs some maintenance and upgrades, its quite old. The grounds, landscaping, activities were very nice. I was a little disappointed in the food at the restaurants. When we were outside the resort the guide kept showing us all these exotic fruit trees but pineapple, watermelon and cantaloupe was all they had everyday, UNTIL we asked the premiere... More

I stayed here for a week, and it was a trip to remember. Everything went as planned, if not better. The restaurants had amazing service and the food was amazing. The beaches were literally paradise. I went to the Internet Cafe a couple of times, and got great service there as well, with the help from the worker Joanna Castillo.... More

During my one night stay at Barcelo, the service and activities were excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed the food and the night life of the resort. My favorite part of the trip was meeting Jose Carraseo, a bellboy who carried our luggage to and from our room during after our check-in and check-out. Jose's personality really gave me an idea of...

Upon our arrival 3 days ago, check in took a while, but our room was ready. The first room was completely over run with ants. Upon calling guest services and being transferred between them and the front desk about 3-4 times I was told I would be called back un 10 minutes. 20 min passed and no call. After finally... More

We stayed here from June 8-12 and weren't sure what to expect based on some mixed reviews. But let me just say, this place was FANTASTIC. Punta Cana is absolutely gorgeous in general, and this hotel was equally gorgeous and impressive, and a great value for the price. The grounds are very well-maintained, the pools (yes there are 2 -... More

I am not high maintenance by any means and I was very disapointed with our stay at Barcelo Punta Cana. We traveled with a party of 10 people and still received horrible service. I am also a very good tipper even while staying at an all inclusive and tipping didnt even help the service level. The area is beautiful and... More

I really like the beach and also the pool. The service was good, for example, Jose Carrasco was very funny and outgoing. Also, the lady at the Internet cafe was polite and helpful. Overall it was a good vacation.
