nice trip

Our trip was nice. The staff and food were great. Rooms needed updating but were clean. The beach was clean but the vendors waking around got to be a little to much at times. I would go back again.

Average

Hotel is not bad for the price, food was good, not too many choices but overall good. Beach was beautiful. Not enough beach chairs or towels. Had to get up at 6:30am every day to "reserve" beach chairs, and one time another guest removed my items from chair, throw it in sand and took chair, so that when I arrived at 8:30 I only had one chair! Hotel allows "vendors" to stay on beach all day (example: women who braid hair, sit under shade all day, taking up shade space and talking all day, every day) They have security standing by entrance to beach all day which makes no sense - as vendors are allowed on beach. Hotel staff treats European/Canadians much better. Security guards treat you as if you are sneaking into hotel, when you are paying to stay there! shows were not very good, not much to do. If you want to stay with an older crowd and just sit by the beach it's fine. Bottom line - you get what you pay for.

Puerto Plata

I enjoyed my six day stay at Barcelo. The food was delicious (especially the Mexican & Brazilian) and the staff were friendly, but it would have been easier if the staff had spoken more English. At times it was hard to communicate with some of them for simple requests. If you don't mind tons of children running around the resort then this is the place for you! It's super kid-friendly. Overall, Barcelo certainly doesn't have that four (4) star appeal but it was worth the money. I'd definitely recommend it to others.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

Hemingway's or CocoBongo offered much better entertainment than the hotel's entertainment which starts at 9pm each night. They're both a short walk from the hotel site.

I had a Great Time!!!!

The best part about this Hotel are the Staff. They were so nice and friendly, I made tons friends while staying their :D The food was good and the rooms were not. Only issues were the timing of the food places, wish they were open longer and the rooms A/C was a little to high. I would definitley go back, the price was good :)

Fun if you plan excursions

Hotel is decent, service is spotty, food is ok, but definitely a value vacation. Small property size can make it difficult to stay longer than a few days so booking excursions outside of the hotel is must to keep it interesting.

Take a cab to Sosua Beach and the bar district - well worth it.

THE BARTENDERS!!

The bartenders next to the Jacuzzi are really nasty, they are really expecting you to tip them if not you will get ignore next time you come. Overall i was very disappointed at first because i was expecting a little more of luxury however some how we managed well and everything turned out okay. What makes this Resort special is mainly the live band and the people otherwise this is a 2 Star Resort!! BTW they don't have kids club here at this Resort.

Nice place for the price.

My guest and I had a good time but it could have been better. The all inclusive wasn't that good. You might want to go elsewhere for better food. The drinks were so small I felt like a kid asking mommy for a refill every 10 minutes. The waiters were funny acting. I remember sitting at the bar and being ignored while watching people come up and get there drinks immediately. This happened on several occasions. The room was nice, clean and cool. Im a hard sleeper, but someone's car alarm kept going off every night. There was a party every night until 3 or 4 in the morning. With all that said I would return, cant beat the price for 4 night and two people.
