This is a resort to get excited about. This complex used to be 5 resorts. They tore down 4 of them to build the Barcelo Bavaro Palace. The 5th was renovated to be the adult only Barcelo Bavaro Beach. This resort is absolutely enormous and full of facilities to enjoy. The good thing is that it is compact. I have seen resorts with far less rooms take up a lot more space (caugh caugh Paradisus). Most of the restaurants are around the lobby. They have such a wide variety that you will not be left looking for more.

Rooms at this resort range quite a bit as well. They have golf junior suites which are the furthest from the beach and pools but located the closest to the golf course. I do not really suggest these rooms simply based on location and the fact they do not have a Jacuzzi. Other than they have junior suites, 2 bedroom family rooms, 2 bedroom family junior suites, premium club rooms, and the beautiful presidential suite. I created a page just for the presidential suite.

The junior suites are great for couples and small families. Families looking for a bit more space and privacy from the kids at night can go with a family room or get even more space in a family junior suite. Please check out all the pages I have built for this resort to see all the facilities and room types that I saw on my inspection of this resort.

The presidential suite is something truly special. They have a max of 6 adults in the room. If you are bringing your nanny or babysitter and kids they will allow 7 people. The rate is flat and varies on the season. It ranges from $1800 to $2400 a night. It has 4 bedrooms (one for the nanny/babysitter), two living rooms, a dining room, and a humongous balcony with infinity pool. Even if the price tag is out of your budget it is still pretty cool to look at my pics. I think if you have 2 couples and 2 friends (because one room has double beds) and split the price up to $300 to $400 per person per night it is worth it. I think you will agree after seeing my pics.

This resort has the coolest sports bar I have ever seen at any resort. It is open 24 hours a day with food made to order 24 hours a day. They have 4 pool tables, a bar to belly up to, a bunch or tables and then they have a big screen projection TV with stadium seating. That part of it is just like a theatre. At your affordable all-inclusive resort it does not get any better than this. You have to look at my pics of that.

Kids are going to be in heaven at this resort. Their kid’s pool is the best on site water park I have seen at a resort anywhere. It is a lot like that of the Barcelo Maya Palace but double the size (bigger resort = bigger water park). There is a bar there for the adults and a bar for the kids. A 2 minute walk is a huge pirate ship that is a water park feature for teens. Super cool. Then they have a teen disco and mini golf. I have to say that his is most family fun for the money I have seen after seeing 150 -200 all inclusive resorts (I stopped counting a long time ago). I have had groups of adults stay in the family junior suites and want to be away from the water park due to noise. You have nothing to worry about if this is what you are planning. I was there when the resort was full did not feel like there was a lot of noise coming from the park to the point that you would hear it in your room.

The beach at this resort is one of the best in Punta Cana. It may be the best. It has won some awards from Travel Channel and other places as well. There is an aquarium a couple 100 yards off shore. That is where you can go swim with the stingrays and have little fish eat the dead skin off your feet. The water at the beach is like that of a swimming pool. Perfect for those people who like to float on their back and relax or a 2 year olds that just wants to splash and play with out getting killed by a wave. The pools are huge, the palm trees are plentiful, bars are everywhere. Golf green fees are included every other day for every guest. I do not know what else you can expect for a resort to want to offer you for the price you are paying no matter what room you have. This place is a great value for those looking for action and variety with out killing your bank account.

Reasons why you would book this resort: You are looking for a resort that has enough facilities to keep you happy and entertained over a 2 week vacation. You are looking for a resort that has great family inclusions to keep the little ones happy all day and passed out by 6 pm (just in time for a baby sitter and a romantic dinner).

Reasons why you would not book this resort: You are looking for a small boutique resort. You are looking for an adults only resort.
