Overall, had an awesome time! 2nd trip there in 3 months. Room needs a bit updating (previously stayed in Palace with more updated rooms), and difficult getting needed room refills/supplies. Otherwise, the staff are awesome, friendly, happy and helpful. Some of the food is just okay, but if you do your research and look around so much of it is amazing!! So much fresh fruit, fish, shellfish, fun restaurants, and plenty of everything. Great drinks, unlimited! Paradise.

I would give this place a 4.5 out of 5 if I could, but there were a few items that dropped it down to 4 out 5. 1) The process they use for check in at the Golf Course is tedious! Part of it could be a language barrier but every golfer we talked to agreed with us. I feel not matter how competent the ladies are, the amount of paper required and writing down of room numbers numourous times made the experience almost laughable. The club need to improve the process not the staff implementing their process 2) The golf course layout is great, starting to dry out in April. Many of the sand traps were more gravel than sand, so we decided we would lift out of some of them. 3) The food was good, not great....but good. Now for the good parts. 1) Every staff member there was friendly and helpful and would go out of their way to help you. I forgot my phone at the golf course and a staff member raced me back to the course and waited for me to retrieve my phone and raced me back and I beat my friends to the buffet, to sight an example 2) The size of the adults only resort is perfect with entertainment nightly that was fun an entertaining. Getting drinks while at the pool was fast and efficient. Age old issue of people "reserving" poolside chairs was there with was disappointing so we usually ended up finding single chairs and moving them close together 3) The rooms(bathroom) are a tad dated, but they were spacious and the beds comfortable. 4) Other than the daily check-in process at the golf course, and what I cited earlier, we will most likely return again next year to the same resort and golf packages as long as the prices remain the same. Hint: Have the a-la-cart breakfast at the Golf Course restaurant if you have an early tee-off time 5) One restaurant at the Bavaro Beach was excellent and would eat there every time and that is the "La Brisa". Great location, service and food. Dinner there at least every other night is a must. The buffets were clean and plentiful. 6) The layout of the Bavaro Beach - Adults only was easy to get accustomed to with everything at your finger tips. Shuttles to the Bavaro Palace if you want to head over there came by like clockwork. Beach is great, pool is a good size I would highly recommend this resort for any adult and especially for golfers. We liked the 8 oz beers on the course, perfect size TBH with you. Great for couples as well, as I would say 80-90% of the people there were couple and a few of them golfed. Pickleball, baseball field, soccer field, tennis courts all close by.....walking distance.

We just returned and I can say the hotel needs improvements! The buffet food is just ok at best, the Mediterranean and steak house dinners were our favorites. Maria in the buffet was Awesome! But the rest of the staff, not so much, we were lucky if you found a clean table to sit at, always had to wave someone down to clean it, and usually they didn’t return with your drink you ordered. The pool waitstaff was great, only 1 bar open after 7pm. The resort needs updating for sure. Overall just average, I think we’ll stay someplace else next time.

Horrible. Room was full of roaches and customer service was terrible. My father developed legionnaires disease! Would never recommend Barcelo at all to anyone!! I didn’t even thing the food was that great. Very repetitive. But the worst part was the enormous cockroaches a d how they didn’t deal with it at all!!

We just got home after spending 7 glorious days at this resort, this is our 2nd time there (April 2nd to7th).We plan to go back next year. We stayed on the Adults only side and upgraded to premium oceanfront room, we were in building 6 second floor. As you already heard on here the rooms are dated, but very clean. We had a small issue with the A/C the first night we were there and it was resolved within the hour. Bring your own face clothes. We tipped our maid and mini fridge guy well and they went above and beyond to make our stay most enjoyable. We did 2 alacarts Santa Fe and La Hoya 19 as we don’t like schedules on our vacation. Both were excellent. The buffets were very good, we could always find something to eat, and never left hungry 🤤. I suggest you get there fairly early after it opens as it sometimes hard to find a table when it’s busy. I would suggest that you get up early to reserve your chairs on the beach or pool. Don’t forget to bring a bubba mug. We also did an excursion to Monkey Land it was the highlight of our trip, it’s a must do and a once in a lifetime experience. 🙈🙈🙈 😊

Sorry, it's long! I just returned from a wonderful 10 days at this resort. I would definitely go back without hesitation!!! Check in was good. We were originally in building 5 with no view, so requested an upgrade. We paid to be premium guests. I honestly didn't care so much about the premium benefits as just having some sort of a view but that was what was available. I am disappointed to hear that some people have been able to just "bribe" to get a different room, whereas we paid a nightly fee. It was less expensive for us to upgrade on site than through our tour company, so I guess there's that... Our room was the perfect location in building one - third floor, very close to the pool, restaurants, lobby, etc and had a pool and ocean view. If you don't want a pool view or the noise from the pool, I would recommend ocean front buildings 2 or 6 - they are the closest to the beach and would afford you the best views (building 4 is as well but it's the furthest from everything). I did my research, so was not surprised that the rooms, especially the bathrooms, are outdated. I was more surprised by how many people didn't know that before they went and then were disappointed! We aren't in the room for any real amount of time, so it was fine. The king sized bed is HUGE. I guess it must be a California King? The grounds, pool, common areas are immaculate. More shade options would be appreciated but are available if you are an early riser. Usually if you go down to the pool around 8-8:30, there would be plenty of options, although some days seemed better than others. After 8:30, choices were getting slim but there were still chairs available (full sun). There's always those few people who are the reason behind "chair rage". I sat beside chairs that had been "saved" with resort towels and a book and magazine by the time I got down there at 9. They remained untouched until after 1:00. A woman had come along at around noon and actually switched their things to very nearby chairs because there was a cigar smoker near where she was sitting. When the people finally showed up, they were enraged that she touched their belongings. Called her names, the whole deal. Their "belongings" actually being the hotel's towels? The beach seemed to have lots of chairs, we didn't spend a ton of time on the beach. The party boats going back and forth all day are pretty annoying but otherwise, no vendors bothering you, it seemed pretty peaceful! If you are considering a party boat excursion, message me first! Food - we enjoyed the food! We were in Mexico in January and this food was as good or better. I felt like La Brisa and Chez Gourmet were fine dining experiences. We really enjoyed our meals at both of these restaurants. The buffet had plenty to offer and my favourite dinner dish was fresh made pasta. I wished that the grilled meat was made to order, as that meat was often dry by the time it sat there for a bit. We also really appreciated the open-air dining of the buffet. We ate at Kyoto and it was really good too! Typical teppanyaki experience/show and nice hot, fresh food. We lunched at Hoyo 19 several times, as we golfed 6 times and it was excellent as well. Liquor - I appreciated being able to get Absolut everywhere! The beer is also good. I think that the liquor selection is one of the best I've seen. Shows - not really my cup of tea but they try. The shows on the Palace side seemed like they were probably way better - the theater itself is huge. We watched part of the Circus show and were impressed. We enjoyed the vibe of our lobby bar way more than the Palace side but maybe we just stopped in there before it was busy. We enjoyed some cocktails every night at the Lobby bar and it could get quite busy. We really liked the bartenders and were sad to say goodbye to them! Oh, and a special mention to Maria who works at the breakfast and lunch buffet. I have never been greeted by a more friendly and warm person! I was sad that she wasn't there our last morning! Golf - as mentioned, we golfed 6 times. We would walk down to the lobby and one of the bell boys would run us over there on a golf cart, which was handy! We did club storage and our clubs would often be on the cart waiting for us. Tee times are seemingly just suggestions because you could really just go whenever you got there. This wasn't usually a problem, most of our rounds were decently quick but the last day was slow. I loved the course and the conditions were generally good. Sand traps were pretty bad but they were doing some raking on our last day. Had to get used to course maintenance happening at all times (our course doesn't do that). Also, don't rely on the washrooms that are out on the course, they are pretty unmaintained (one didn't have water running in it at all but people still using it - so gross). We found most of the staff friendly, some above and beyond friendly, some not so much. Everyone we said "Hola" to said it back. I think anywhere to go, even at home, some people are just friendlier than others! Oh - quick note about Beach vs Palace. Palace side was way too loud and chaotic for me and I like to have a good time! I have never seen so many people in a pool and we have done a LOT of travelling. I appreciated the ability to use both facilities but am really glad we went to the Beach side, especially during spring break/Easter. If the rooms were more updated, this would have been a 5+ star holiday.

I arrived here on Monday with a group of 12 of us in total, I must say there was some apprehension with the mixed reviews but our attitude is it’s too late to change it so let’s make the best of it. We arrived to a cold drink and pleasant staff we knew our rooms wouldn’t be ready but we got our bracelets so we had full access and were able to make our a la carte reservations. The beach is great and the buffet is plentiful, if you can’t find anything to eat then you have nothing to do but complain. The shopping is great and I have to say the view from the restaurant at the golf club is beautiful. The guys have golfed every day and have nothing but great things to say about the course and the staff, speaking of the staff we have been going away together as a group every year and have never met nicer staff. This is the first resort we are considering coming back to next year, three more days of bliss than back to reality.

I’m currently staying at this resort. Last night my purse was stolen while I was at the evening show. Thanks to several audience members and Marleny on the entertainment crew, who is awesome, they found the woman who stole my purse and I got it back. But the front desk, guest services and security did ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. I told them the purse snatcher was sitting at the bar, and the didn’t do a thing. They said it wasn’t the resort’s problem. So I wouldn’t advise going here because Barcelo doesn’t care if you are robbed on their property. I’m checking out today and never want to come back.

This was our third trip to Barcelo Bavaro Beach in the adults only section. I won't complain much since we now what to expect. This vacation is 1/4 the price of a similar room and Club Level of Secrets. When you have that type of price variance there is a reason. The room we had was in an awesome location. Room 6019. Ocean Front, walkout, next to La Brisa, Premium Level. The food at this resort is very average. Kyoto was the best since we had a great hibachi chef. Service is hit and miss. You can find some friendly staff, but for the most part, you don't hear a "hello" or "hola" from anyone are even a smile. We go here because we are beach and pool people and just want to get away. The fact that it is quiet and soooo beautiful is what we love. The rooms are so badly in need of an update that the Barcelo Worldwide Resort Guidebook was from 2017! In 7 years they haven't changed their own book of resorts in the room! Rooms need more outlets, USB ports, new tile, complete shower overhaul, bedding and drapes. Plenty of space in our room and bathroom, but repainting it isn't a remodel. You aren't in your room that much and we knew they were old so it doesn't bother us. What bothers me is that they are this clueless with so many reviews saying the same thing. Get the Premium Level - great check in process, we ended up with two bottles of Barcelo rum in our room. Late check out. 24 hour room service, but we didn't use it. The restaurants are very average and service can be slow and inattentive. Some of the al la carte restaurants don't even offer full bar service, including Le Comedie which is supposed to be a special restaurant. With Premium Level, we were able to make all of our dinner reservations a month in advance and got everything we wanted. That's big just in itself. I don't drink, so having to stop at Jumbo grocery store to pick up non-alcoholic beer is bad. Times are changing and they don't seem to change with them. If you are into nice cocktails like martinis - a cosmo or lemon drop, forget it. They struggled making a vodka cranberry. The Premium Level includes upgrade liquor but that is Absolut vodka. They don't carry anything like Grey Goose. The entertainment was the exact same shows we saw last year. The Bavaro Palace is where most of the action is, and it's an easy train ride over. We love having the quiet of the adults only and the option to go to the more crazy side of the Palace.
