    Location 6.38 /10

    Located in Punta Cana, the tourist epicentre in the country with its 25 miles of beach, encircled by the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, on the southwest coast of the Dominican Republic, the Barcelo Bavaro Palace hotel is on the Bavaro beach, some 30 miles from the bustling town of Higuey (45 minutes) and 125 miles from Santo Domingo, the capital town of the Dominican Republic. Las Americas, the international airport of Santo Domingo, is located 118 miles away (three hours). The airport of Punta Cana is 13 miles from the hotel (15 minutes).

    Accommodation 8.70 /10

    All 594 rooms at the Barcelo Bavaro Palace offer a view of the sea! Very spacious (about 430 ft²), modest and comfortable, they are worthy of a hotel of very good standing and have air conditioning, satellite television, a fridge-bar, a bathroom with marble bath, a hair dryer and a safe included in the tourist package.

    Overview 8.95 /10

    This hotel, built in 1993, has 594 rooms distributed in 6 buildings, each housing 99 rooms. Luxurious, it has everything to satisfy the most demanding customers: a very beautiful beach, a swimming pool, four tennis courts... Better yet, it is integrated into the gigantic structure, Barcelo, where everything is possible (especially for those coming from the Palace), even going to Mass on Sunday!

    Food and drink 8.70 /10

    The five restaurants of the Barcelo Bavaro Palace, semi-open or air-conditioned, offer tasty cuisine. Do not miss: the gourmet restaurant, Palace, as an option, delicious and perfect for a romantic dinner. The Grand Caribe buffet and three grill restaurants serving a la carte are also very popular. Above all, the Barcelo Bavaro Palace - the only hotel in Punta Cana where lobster is served a will... Much better! The customers of this hotel can dine and drink a glass in all the restaurants and bars of the entire complex Barcelo.

    Beach 8.95 /10

    The beach of the Barcelo Bavaro Palace hotel, namely Playa Bavaro, is the most famous in Punta Cana. With its transparent waters and white sand, it is difficult not to be seduced! The beach extends far beyond the horizon, although it does not belong only to the hotel - all neighbouring resorts share this beach. The only problem: the nagging noise of the boat engines, which fly by on the waves all day. The beach of the Barcelo Bavaro Palace provides many deckchairs and houses the water sports centre, which offers a wide range of activities.

    To know

    The Barcelo Bavaro Palace is clearly one of the best hotels in Punta Cana. This resort is distinguished by the quality of its services and its facilities. Absolutely incredible! The complex into which it is incorporated forms part of the six Barcelo hotels, a real village. A casino, a chapel, shops, golf course, disco, restaurants - nothing is missing in this amazing world. An eldorado for those who love large closed and secured holiday compounds. However, the most curious may get bored: the Dominican lifestyle is far, far from the planet Barcelo.

      The EdenH Real Arena is one of the latest high-class resorts on Punta Cana, and was inaugurated in January 2008. All the facilities are of a remarkably high quality, from the restaurants and swimming-pools, to the gym and the very VIP children's club. It is one of the best for its clubs.

Branded a Leading Small Hotel of The World, this boutique hotel is a small enclave of serenity in the vast Punta Cana Resort and Club, a luxury resort located on the most beautiful beach on the east coast of the country, with 7 restaurants including 2 gourmet restaurants, a prestigious Six Senses spa, and three 18-hole golf courses, all situated in an ecological park of just under 1,500 acres that includes freshwater springs and rhinoceros iguanas.

      A veritable resort, this upmarket paradise certainly wins the award for luxury in Punta Cana! The exclusive section of the Paradisus Palma Real, The Reserve at Paradisus Palma Real Resort is set back from the exquisite Bavaro Beach, 10 minutes away, but that's its only flaw (there has to be at least one). Highlights include the spacious, maximum comfort apartments, equipped with a kitchen and a terrace with a whirlpool bath, the superb spa, the fully equipped kids club, the free Internet access, and the gastronomy, with a special mention for the Japanese restaurant. Of course, guests also have access to the facilities at the Paradisus Palma Real.

      The Royal Suites Turquesa by Palladium is the exclusive and high range part of the huge hotel complex that includes the Grand Palladium Bavaro Resort and Spa, the Grand Palladium Palace Resort and Spa, and the Grand Palladium Punta Cana Resort and Spa, along the magnificent Bavaro Beach. Reserved for adults, the Royal Suites Turquesa by Palladium is all-inclusive, with a 24/7 butler service. There is no organised entertainment and the atmosphere is very peaceful (you can always go to one of the other hotels in the complex for that). We loved the spa, free Internet access and the choice of restaurants.
