Great Hotel! Relaxing vacation

We were treated exceptionally so well by the staff that the stay was beyond our expectation. We upgraded to the Club Premium and enjoyed the jacuzzi and better selection of drinks and food. We stayed in a one bedroom suite in the building 14 which is a very quiet area with free wi fi and is only a few steps away from the beach. The room was very clean. The food was good and all service staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Swimming pool was always clean and the animation team was great.

The staff makes the trip worth it!

I have been to this resort a number of times because of the great staff. They are friendly but not overbearing. The live band is wonderful, too!

Buffet Only

The hotel was a liilte older but who cares. The beach and the pool were great. The staff was extremely helpful and outgoing. The problem was they claim to have 8 restaurants. The restaurants were never open more then two a day, for dinner only by reservation only. 3 of our 5 nights there it was buffet only. We lived on mango and thankfully had a car so we left to eat else where, which seems riciulous for an all inclusive

just ordinary

my last experience at barcelo punta cana was great so i decided to stick to this hotel and booked it again at puerta plata; however the experience was disappointing. food- for the ones you need to make reservations for; they were just average whereas the buffet needed improvement. (selections options were low and from whats available the food just wasn't tasty. the beach was somewhat close by, but was very empty and wasn't that clean. my friends and i decided to visit the disco by the beach at night and we found homeless dogs running running around. lastly, we were suppose to have a resort credit but this was a rip off. the resort credit couldn't be applied to anything, so in the end we didnt even use it.

Not good enough for the money.

Not a 4 star hotel as listed. Very small and modest lobby. Rude workers. Food variety poor. Very small buffet space.

Really not what I was expecting

I arrived to a crowded open air front desk; swarms of people with no sense of personal space or manners. After receiving my "welcome packet' I asked where I could find my room and was told to see a bellhop. I was driven to my room and was surprised to find another open air builiding and no elevators. My room housed two double beds, small table, a barely moving fan, hardly working ac, and a toliet that would not stop running. The swim up bar in the pool was very nice and drinks were poured strongly. While there are 8 restaurants on the property, only 2 open each evening and reservations must be made however you can not make reservations the day you check in. Breakfast buffet and lunch buffet were fine and full of options and the restaurants offered a few interesting choices. Beach area was nice if you ignore the salespeople and there were several games to participate in while relaxing. Pool was huge and again, games were played on the deck with the staff. Most of the staff was very nice and even went out at night with the guests to the discoteca. Not sure I would go back due to the accomodations and the lack of english being spoken. While I knew I was going to a spanish speaking country, I thought as this is a resort, there would be more english.
