Fun In the Sun

This was our first "all inclusive" vacation. The resort was very nice. Clean room, friendly staff and plenty of food. You won't go hungry although the quality is average. All the restaurants were about the same as the buffet. Freshly squeezed juices great at breakfast. Wasabi was very good, enjoyed it the most. Buffet was always good. Husband and daughter signed up for scuba divings although husand had to cancel due to illness, got money back with a doctors statement. Scuba diving was great. All day trip to Catalina Island was "so so". Beach very rocky, biting flies and a two hour bus ride to get to the boat, then 20 minutes to the island. Would not do that excursion. Overall, great vacation, would definetly go back.

Good Bang for your Buck

The overall service was superior at Dominican Beach Resort. We definitely preferred the a la carte restaurants over the buffet food. There are 5 a la carte restaurants, which you have to make reservations for. In order to get the reservation you want for the night, we had to go down at 7 AM everyday to the reservation stand at the Palamsol Buffet. Reservations are limited! The good thing is you can make dinner reservations for that night and the next at the same time. The only restaurant where the service was absolutely horrible was Mezzaluna, the italian restaurant. The food was good, but the service was bad. The entertainment is beyond what I expected. The MC speaks 5 different languages: English, Spanish, French, German, and Italian. There are nightly shows with dancing and singing. The afternoon Beach games including volleyball, soccer, bocce, etc were most enjoyable, as well.

Dining tip: In Hotel

Make reservations for dinner as early as possible to get your preferred restaurant and time you want to eat. Dinner reservations are usually for either 6 PM, 8 PM, or 9:30 PM. It seems that the service is usually better at the 6 PM or 8 PM times.

Great for the price

Barcelo Dominican Beach is certainly a 3 star hotel. But what it lacks in service and food, it more than makes up for with the location and quality of the beach. Being unable to speak spanish is sometimes a problem here because most people cannot speak clear enough english for you to understand. The check in clerks speak english, but sometimes they will try to charge you for things you didn't buy. The food is okay, however many things looked/tasted quite questionable and I stuck to the same courses at the buffets because I knew I could trust them. The restaurants (in the evening) were superb, especially the japanese hibatchi one. We really enjoyed that one, and overall did not have any bad dinner experiences. Overall, I'd say go to this place if you don't have the money to go somewhere better. But if you are young and don't have alot of money like myself, but are looking for a Caribbean vacation, I recommend this place. PS, we upgraded to a honeymoon suite and it was definately worth the money. It was only a little extra, but we got free internet for the week, romantic dinner on the beach, VIP status which allowed us to get any drinks (even international), and an oceanfront room with a balcony. Definately worth the extra money!

NICE HOTEL

We came here to meet with our family. Even though the hotel rooms require some renovations: old bedding, towels ,etc. The stuff did their best to make us as comfortable is possible. Taking to the consideration that we only slept in the rooms during the night, it was not a big deal for us. The theme for buffet is changed every night: anywhere from Mexican to French, Dominican, Italian and other international cousine. The entertaining group was working there butts off, during day and each night they presented a great show which was ; very professionally directed. All drinks were included: tequila, rom, vodka etc. The stuff is very friendly and will do their best to make you comfortable. We really enjoyed the weather and the resort as well.

Make reservation to the restaurant as early as possible. Take with you your own cups, b/c all drinks are served in 8oz plastic cups. Also, if you go shopping for souvenirs, local paintings, jewelry etc. You can easily get up to 70% off the price they ask at first.

One of the best vacation experiences

The hotel rooms were very clean, no bugs, great service, but the lighting was very dim. The rooms did not get cleaned until about 2:30PM but that was fine. The food was very good it includes buffets and 5 different theme resturants, I felt the buffets were actually better than the resturants. There are not many activities to do at the resort but its very easy to find outside activities to explore I would reccomend the boogies and scuba diving. The servers were very friendly. My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our stay there would definately recommend it, god for families and couples. The beach is beautiful the pools are a good size, one of the pools has a nice swim up bar.

Great Vacation

My 18 and 21 year old children went. They LOVED it but said the activities were often filled because there were so many people there. There was a group of 650 18 year olds from Canada there on a class trip. Building 7 is said to be for the young kids who come so if they give you a room there as an adult ask for another.

Great hotel for the price

The hotel was well maintained and the staff very friendly. We had a Jr. Suite on the ground level. Which made us VIP's Lots of Kids from Canada on Grad trip. I was there with 3 grad girls myself. A trip of a lifetime. Security was always present so you felt safe. Food was good. Problems though with the water. Bottle water was always available. I feel Punta Cana overall in 5-6 years will be like Cancun. Lots of construction on the island.

Perfect Spring Break

We came here for spring break and had an absolutely perfect time. Of course, we are used to cafeteria food and long hours in the library so any change is a good change, but our experience at Barcelo was wonderful. Gorgeous beach, perfectly kept grounds, enormous pool, pretty good food and drinks, superfriendly staff, cute activities- what more could you ask for? This hotel isn't the Ritz, so don't expect that, but I would definitely come back and recommend it in particular to college students.
