My wife and two sons (11 and 13) stayed at the Palace Deluxe over February break this year. This continues our tour of Caribbean All-inclusives with a water slide, including Jamaica's Rose Hall, Beaches Turks and Caicos, and Coconut Bay in St. Lucia. My wife thought this one was the fanciest and most elegant. The facilities and rooms are perfectly...

The hotel and facilities is excellent. Great golf course, beach, pool. What ruined it for us is the service during breakfast and lunch. You would be lucky to get water or a refill of coffee during breakfast, most of the times we would be done with breakfast before we got coffee! The waiters are not friendly and few speak any...

We spent 8 days at the Bavaro Palace Deluxe and, over-all, we enjoyed our stay. We had stayed at this resort 12 years ago. It has changed enormously over the years and we missed some of the original intimacy. The food has improved but we found that the servers in the restaurants needed to be better trained. We also found...
