I WILL NEVER STAY HERE AGAIN!

From the moment I arrived there were issues. The toilet wasn't flushing so I had to call the front desk to send a plumber. They never offered to switch my room. I had to make reservations from some restaurants the day before and others the same day. The worst....The maid cleaned my room and left my door unlocked while I was spending the day at a tour. I reported this and all they did was wave the $7.50 fee for my safe...which quite honestly didn't make up for the inconvenience.

slipping

Service was slow overall and most requests got messed up, even though my wife is from the DR. Had a premium club room that was not premium. Clubs section was run down and services were not good. No value In premium. refridgerator broken in room and never repaired. Bathroom was big, but rundown Food was forgettable and produced for the masses. The japanese Ala-carte restaurant looked nice but service was terrible and food not too good Go there, but get the cheapest room you can.

The hotel is a beatiful well maintenance place, the pool and the show were very excited; I enjoyed my family summer vacations. They should improve the food ( same everyday), also the drinks ( very low quality ).

Fantastic getaway

I personally went for a wedding at the beach which was pretty good. The staff was very attentive to all of the details of the wedding which was good. The food on the other hand could have been a little better. It was edible but sometimes it just tasted bland. The pool is excellent in the morning when most of the visitors are still asleep. The shows at night have variety from night to night and you have a chance to win a few things if you are bold enough to participate in the pre-show event. All in all, it was a excellent stay.

If you want to enjoy a calm and peaceful dinner without the complications of waiting in line at the buffet, make sure to make your reservations early for the various different restaurants that the hotel has to offer.

Unfriendly staff

Unfriendly & understaffed personell from the front desk to beachfront you feel like an intruder rather then a valued guest For example, our group of 4 adults were confronted and made uncomfortable and then punished with little service at the Italian restaurant for arriving late and then were denied coffee & desert while suffering through inattention for as much of a delay the staff was directed to impose on us by manager

not sure I would stay again

We did the premium package and it was nothing special. Too expensive for what you got. Would have enjoyed it more if we had done standard package and NOT spent the extra money for the premium.

Honeymoon "Luna de Miel "

Cool room on the end with backyard palm garden privacy and quiet. Yet close in to pool, restaurants and show. We got married in Santiago and came to Barcelo for our honeymoon, quite a big adjustment in cultural difference between bride and groom. Groom is American from Seattle and bride Dominicana from Santiago so we were basically adjusting to how to be a married couple. Special experience. The only negative comments I need to make is very crowded and challenging to find two chairs together by pool or on beach, it felt crowded but everything worked out fine.
