Barcelo Bavaro Grand Resort

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

The hotel

This superb all-inclusive hotel complex, overlooking one of the top ten beaches in the world, consists of two hotels, one that is adults only — the Beach — and the Palace, which welcomes families too. The Palace has a separate section — the Family Club — with rooms accommodating up to 6. Packed to the hilt with amenities, upgrade to Premium Level and you’ve even more luxury at your fingertips, including rooms with the best sea view, personalised check-in and check-out and access to the Premium Level Lounge, serving drinks and open from 7:00am ‘til 10:00pm. Premium Level guests staying at the Palace share the facilities of the Bavaro Beach and there’s even a free train to get around the complex — yes, it’s that big! Opt for stunning ocean front rooms, or enjoy tropical garden views instead — there are plenty to choose from, all very comfortably furnished and boasting the latest mod-cons. Other delights include a brilliant selection of water sports, clubs for kids and teens and a recently redesigned golf course, which may tempt even the non-enthusiasts amongst you! The U Spa is also worth shouting about, a sanctuary within a sanctuary, breathe in the captivating aroma of essential oils as you troubles drift away. Dining-wise, you’re in for a treat at the Barcelo, there are plenty of restaurants to choose from, suiting every taste, mood and occasion.

Alexander Acevedo was exceptional with the entertainment. We danced all over the beach. Played volleyball. He was very friendly and pumped us up! He even danced with me. Loved it. The food was definitely better than bavaro palace. Bavaro Beach is the way to go!!
