Barcelo Santo Domingo

Food pricing in main buffet restaurant vs quality is really good. Pool area in general is really nice. Rooms and common areas are ok. Rooms seeing the street suffers the main avenue traffic sound, which is pretty jammed all day. Internet is a pain in the neck, in case you go there for business this might be your main problem. Gym is from the 80s

Great Hotel Experience!

I normally stay in a hotel that's usually in the $75-$80 range and as you would expect, you get your usual three star experience. However, the cost per night for reserving at Barcelo was just a few dollars more so I opted to stay here and was blown away. Everything was great: Luxurious ambiance, great food, a casino for thrills and an amazing pool area and bar. The one little nuance was the hotel staff which I felt were like the staff I found at my other hotel stays; not very helpful. However, this would not deter me from staying here again. As long as the price is right, I'll always be booking here when I stay in Santo Domingo.

ehhh from nyc

Twelve dollars a day horrible wifi. upon checkout, i had to stand there, while they told me they needed to check the room, which was so rude. Its very hard to get around. upon checkin, the conceirge attempted to charge my card two hundred dollars for planned incidentals, which caused fraudulent alarm from my bank and they froze my card, I've never had a hotel charge that much after i already paid for it thru this site. An hour to the beach, and I was warned to not leave my stuff, so i guess i'm swimming with my cell phone and money. Upon checkout, the guy hails me cab, the cab wont start, but tells me its fine, its dark out, he pulls over to the side of the road, demands full fair, I explain I do not speak spanish, puts me in another cab, he also has car trouble, I demand to go to the airport NOW, and finally get there after 90 min. Hotel TV is 95% spanish channels. Pool was the nicest part

One night stay in Santo Domingo before heading to Punta Cana. Barcelo was a great option, very clean with helpful staff. Especially enjoyed the Japanese restaurant.
