    Location 10.0 /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 hotel Villas Bavaro is on the Bavaro beach, some 30 miles from the bustling town of Higueÿ (within 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). Punta Cana airport is 13 miles from the hotel (15 minutes).

    Accommodation 7.45 /10

    The rooms of the Villas Bavaro are spacious (about 270 ft²) offering all comfort. They have air conditioning, satellite television, a mini-bar, a bathroom with a bathtub, a hair dryer and a safe included in the package.

    Overview 7.45 /10

    Located in the heart of a beautiful tropical garden, this hotel, built in 1997, has a friendly, family ambiance. With its 239 rooms, this small hotel has the great advantage of imitating the local architecture. The hotel's 23 bungalows and 20 rooms, all colourful, are simply charming. Just enough to feel happy.

    Food and drink 7.45 /10

    With six restaurants and eight bars, the customers of the Villas Bavaro can change their eating area and the cuisine they eat at will.

    Spa

    Open from 7:00am to 8:00pm, the Rénova Spa includes 12 massage rooms, an outdoor relaxation area, a Jacuzzi, a sauna, a steam room, a beauty and hair salon.

    Beach 8.20 /10

    The beach of the Villas Bavaro hotel, Playa Bavaro, is the most famous in Punta Cana. With the 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 sail on the waves all day. The beach of the Villas Bavaro is a bit far from the hotel (within a 10 minute walk).

    To know

    The hotel club Villas Bavaro is one of the most charming in Punta Cana. Indeed, it perfectly mimics the local architecture: all buildings that house accommodations are bungalows in colourful Creole style, similar to small Dominican houses. However, the beautiful coconut palm beach is a 10 minute walk from the hotel.

      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.
