Mediterranean-style Punta Cana hotel spoils with all-inclusive luxury

Barcelo Punta Cana – All-Inclusive, a beachfront resort on the eastern shores of the Dominican Republic, accommodates travelers with a taste for restaurant hopping, gambling, water sports and simply relaxing by the swim-up bar. But the sprawling resort manages to be kid friendly, too. In addition to a supervised kid's club, the hotel tempts with its own versions of discos for children ages 4 to 12 and 13 to 17.

Highlights
  • 798 rooms overlooking the gardens, ocean or lagoon-style pool
  • Casino
  • Swim-up bar
  • Kids' club, mini disco, playground and pool
  • Spa treatments
Rooms

Guests unwind in tropical rooms covering a variety of layouts. Décor mimics the breezy style of the rest of Barcelo Punta Cana – All-Inclusive, with colors like amber, beige, green and navy creating an earthy feel. A mix of contemporary rooms -- think mod lamps and glistening floors -- and more traditional spaces -- driven by linen curtains and floral-printed bedspreads -- appeals to tastes on opposite ends of the spectrum. Some rooms look out to the ocean via furnished patios, while standard amenities offer conveniences like LCD TVs, mini-bar with sodas, beer and water, plus Internet access (fees apply).

Features

By day, Barcelo Punta Cana – All Inclusive turns into a playground abuzz with tennis matches, beach volleyball, wall climbing, water polo and more. A kid's club hosts supervised activities for children ages 4 to 12. Parents have their own diversions, from Metamorphosis spa (complete with Vichy shower) to the two swimming pools. By night, even the younger set -- ages 4 to 12 and 13 to 17 -- can flock to their own discos while older patrons enjoy the casino and multiple dining and cocktailing options on the property.

Dining
The all-inclusive package at Barcelo Punta Cana – All Inclusive compels diners to try the global menu of flavors on the property, starting with the all-day buffet at Alcazar. El Marlin, another favorite, dishes up barbecue, seafood and a champagne brunch. For more upscale eats, guests book a table at teppanyaki haunt Tokio, French restaurant Paris and the Italian boite Roma.

Good Time

Great place with good food. Superb beach. Only negative thing was that the staff of intertainment didn't seem to care when we needed them. We had to go see supervisor to get service.

Mixed bag

Basically its 4 star service and a 2 star facility. Buffet is what you would expect for this price range but the reservation restaurants are below what I expected. Some guests in our party had bed bugs in their room, but otherwise the rooms were passable. Staff is great. Friendly and accommodating (especially with a little tip money to break the ice). Beach is fantastic and pool is dated but ok. Lacks sufficient activities for kiddos and even teens. Nightly shows are ok except be careful as some content is not appropriate for kids. We stayed 7 days. If we go back to DR I would probably stay somewhere else.

Great vacation with friends

Good hotel for the value. The staff upgraded us to an oceanfront room, which was gorgeous. The beach was very nice. Great assortment of people (families, nationalities, age groups). The resort is huge, with plenty of activities. Drinks were a little watered down and the bar selection wasn't the greatest. Food was pretty good... nothing to write home about. But, we didn't get sick, which was the most important thing.

Girls Getaway

This hotel was average..for what I paid for it. Needs some updating on the rooms and other areas of the hotel. Me and my friends had our own separate rooms...And none of us had face towels or hand towels...We keep asking everyday...and finally on the 4th and last night....we got them. Plus they don't give you clean towels everyday, you have to keep reusing them. It was not enough staff to run the hotel even though they were very nice. The amenities, food were good and the beach was beautiful.

If your looking for a beautiful AFFORDABLE hotel this is for you

Though the price was great, food was ok. Everything needed a little cleaning up. Beach was amazing as usual in Punta Cana. Bar was good. Bed was super comfortable, no bugs like other people comment. I now prefer a smaller hotel this was huge to many teenagers for me. I'm 27 and there were groups of 14-17 years olds acting crazy our whole trip. But we still had an awesome stay. If your looking for something beautiful and affordable book this hotel! But if your very picky and particular, keep looking.

I'm a buffet person so I wanted to try the buffet the first night, fail! Book reservations for a restaurant at the hotel for each night. PS. Bartenders are very generous with the alcohol.

Below average

It took 2 hrs to check in at the hotel. The lobby staff appeared rude and didn't care if you had made the trip after hours on a plane. I waited forever to check in and when I was checked in, I was told I would have to wait till 4pm before I could get a room. By then lunch was over and I was told to go to the snack bar to get something to eat. When it got to the room, the bed was something I never expected. Very cheap beds. The room was spacious though. The bathroom looked dirty with stains in the tub and cracked toilet. The little fridge looked horrible and was all iced up. The drinks at the bars were all watered down. It's meant to be all inclusive but you'll have to pay to get the better drinks. My apartment is bigger than the casino. I remembered asking the wait staff in the cafeteria for coke and she told me to hold on while she cleared all the tables by mine. She only took my cup after I had gotten up to get the coke myself. I asked for hot sauce vas I didn't get it till after my good was almost finished. The breakfast was ok though. You can't go wrong with breakfast. The hotel is huge and wifi works well but not free. I won't be staying at this hotel again. Back to the RIU for me or sandals.

Celebrating our 30th Anniversary

Firstly, we have stayed in many resorts in the Caribbean w/ the same star rating or better of the Barceló Punta Cana., ie. Cuba (4X), Mexico (1X), Puerto Plata (2X). This resort is by far the best resort we have stayed in. We stayed 9 nights and got room 3309 (superior ocean view room) cost a little more but well worth it. I wish I can include a pic of the view we got from the balcony. King size pillow top bed was very comfortable. The mini fridge was always stocked everyday day free w/ beer, soft drinks, juice and large bottles of water. Room safe was also no charge. Bathroom was stocked with plenty of toiletries, hot water was never an issue and water pressure was great. The large rain shower type shower head was a nice touch. Food was great, plenty of variety w/ many food stations. Staff was also helpful and friendly/pleasant to deal with. The free concierge service which is VIP Travel Service was easily found at the airport. They gave us a private transfer to the resort for $42US. The only small issue we had w/ VIP is that they were rarely around at the resort and did not stick to the scheduled times to be available, this according to their supplied binder for booking excursions. We had to book w. another tour company which was no problem to do this. We opted not to take their transport back to the airport we just took a cab for $40US, which was just fine and safe. We are definitely coming back to this resort !!!! We have learnt that buildings 1, 2 &3 are the newly renovated rooms and if you can afford the superior ocean front view, get it well worth it.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Please avoid the20 minute walk to the "Shopping Centre" down the road. They are very small stores that sell the same stuff, and the vendors are extremely aggressive to get you in their store. Once you leave one store the next vendor approaches once you outside the door to try and get you in their store. There are stores in the hotel will suit your shopping purposes. Also, found that the Barceló Rum is much cheaper at the hotel that what I paid for at the Duty Free at the airport.
