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.

Average!!Could use a lot of improvements!!

The buffet food was terrible! only eggs were good.Staff at buffet would be very slow, forget to bring you silverware, water would come at the end of your meal.They need to improve the quality of staff and food. Their other special restaurants by reservation only was great!! All of their rooms have a mold musty smell, water leaks in most bahrooms, we had ants cralling all over our room, maid serice was average nothing to brag about.Speaking to other guests as we were there, complained about same issues as I have described above. The positive about this resort is the outside grounds, nicely arranged ex. pools, bars & beach views. Building maintenance is needed on their balconys,painting is needed on all of thier floors. Trying to excess the internet was terrible. Over all we would not stay there again. Too many issues.We have visited other & better resorts in Punta Cana. Good Luck!! P....

Absolutely spoiled Holidays

I would never recommend to anyone this hotel in the future. Rooms are dirty, wet, ceilings were leaking at rainy days. Showers and toilets in the room were not working... The hotel staff refused to change the room. From the words of other guests they had the same troubles. Food was more or less good, but the restaurant has a smell of kitchen. Pool & beach towels were absent all the time. To get one sometimes it took more than 1 hour. There was no entertainment at all... Except 2-star casino. The staff was so unfriendly and lazy. Internet connection: in-room - only with a big luck and on a very low speed, at i-cafe - more or less good.

One of the worst hotels

Really bad. Water was cut over 4 hours. Power went out a half night. A/C did not cool well. Wireless internet was only available in the lobby area, and you had to,paid for it of course. Staff were very amicable, but you could not get a straight answer when there was a problem. Food was mot good either, very so so. Pools were good. The special pool for kids was great.

Not a great place to stay

All inclusive means EVERYTHING IS INCLUDED WITHOUT EXCLUSIONS. The "resort" calls itself all inclusive but that do not allow you to choose what restaurants you want to go to. Of the 7 places to eat every breakfast and lunch are EXACTLY the same everyday! (We stayed 6 nights 7 days). Also, after 3PM they ONLY serve hot dogs and hamburgers and french fries from one location for the entire resort, so if you are scheduled (they schedule you a restaurant based on the number of nights you stay- you don't get to choose) to eat dinner at 9PM you are stuck eating burgers and fries. They say that you can make reservations for different places from the guest services but they are always full 3 minutes after guest services opens. We were so annoyed because the restaurants weren't even full for dinner. They basically force you to go to the buffet- which was not very good in my opinion. There were constantly bugs or birds flying around the buffet, the food was not warm, always looked picked over and if it was close to the end of service (breakfast, lunch or dinner) you can forget choices. About 30 minutes to closing the buffet they stop refilling the food. The website also says all drinks included in actuality this means you have a choice of their mixed drinks with one type of rum, one beer or a house white or red wine, and soda products. If you want some other type of liquor you have to pay, if you don't want their red or white wine you have to pay. It was not what we expected. On to the service- what service? The people seemed like they had no pride in their resort. The people were not friendly, they didn't smile, and they were not willing to help. Every night we had to call several (3-4) times for towels (they would bring a wash rag and not towels, or two towels and no rag and hand towel-every day we had issues.) Our room had a leaky toilet and we called 2-3 days for someone to fix it and eventually we gave up and put a towel around the base of the toilet. We had bugs in the sink and called to the office and they said they would "be right up" and 45 minutes later we still had not heard so we had to go to the front desk to get it taken care of. The people didn't speak English so communication was difficult. The pool was very dirty- we never saw anyone cleaning it. There was cups, hair, leaves, bugs, etc. in the pool each day. Also, the pool closes at 7 and towels have to be turned in at 6 each day. Nightly entertainment was ok, a little cheesy but at least it was something. Over all this is not a 4 star resort, you don't really get what you pay for, but the beach is beautiful. If you don't mind rude people, bad food, bad food choices, lackluster rooms this is the place for you.

Needing TLC

Based on the pictures and hotel review, I was sure I had selected the right hotel for my family to stay in. Well, very soon we realized what was going on inside the hotel. 1. rooms need to be updated and maintained. our room had a leak from the room above us and no one came to fix the problem or offer us another room. None of the channels on the tv worked and there was no option to rent a movie or something. 2. the process to make reserv is inefficient. you have to make reserv the day of and not ahead of time. On my vacation I was waking up at 8 to be one of the first ones in line because the lines soon get very long. after all that waiting, and it's finally your turn, they tell you that there are no available reserv for ANY RESTAURANT! 3. Food is terrible. no taste what so ever. the Dominican Food I eat in NJ is much better. I would write more if I had the space but these were my major complains. oh, also too many drunk teens.

Desapointing family vacation

* The food was different combined with low quality ingredients, lots of fat, salt and most of it room temperature including the milk and other beverages. * The staff looked overwhelmed, tired, and some of them very uncomfortable with the work conditions such as the cooks cooking in uniforms without appropriate ventilation. * The pools did not seem to have an appropriate treatment for the amount of people swimming and drinking at the wet bar. * The pools and beach close at 8pm, which is still daytime and is when the sun is finally not too hot. * There was not much to do after dinner as a family except for the 1 hour show at the theater and 2-hour Karaoke in the hallway of the hotel. * Making reservations for the special restaurants were too complicated and almost impossible. Once in the restaurant, there was a lot of time to wait between the courses.

great resort but needs more staff for quicker responses

I enjoyed the show and the dance lesson. The beach Olympics and volleyball game was great. The bathroom should have been cleaner before we got there. The room key stopped working twice. The variety of food was good and the restaurants were nice. The staff needs to respond faster when people call. I waited 1 hour til they could send someone to clean the tub and fix the tv.

Overall Rating

The room above ours must have had a pool in it because there were leak spots above our beds just about ready to burst. The bathroom ceiling leaked above the sink and in the shower. The shower had no water pressure, let alone sometimes no water. The TV nor the radio did not work, and when we got a new TV, there was no remote. The air condition was set to the same temperature the whole time, and on some nights you couldn't sleep because it was so hot. The staff was not friendly at all. They would say hola once in a while, even if you gave tips. The service was terrible. They would either never bring your drink, never ask what you wanted or make you the wrong stuff. The entertainment team was not and entertainment team, if they even had one because from experience this hotel had at most 3 people. Overall, for a 4 star hotel, I thought it would be better.
