It was very organized, clean, and staff was very sensitive about ensuring we felt comfortable during the stay. They have covid testing on site and it was very convenient !

NO ADULTS ONLY The resort was great overall, but beware if you think you're staying at the Adults Only hotel(Barcelo Bavaro Beach).The hotel website makes it look like this section is open and that's what we reserved, but when we checked in we were told Barcelo Bavaro Beach was closed and all guests were staying at Barcelo Bavaro Palace (the main complex). We were also told we'd been upgraded to Premium because the Adults Only room we'd booked was unavailable, but we paid for the Premium upgrade during booking, so that wasn't a consolation. The upsides were that our room was probably larger than it would have been in the Adults Only and the resort wasn't very full anyway. We didn't run into too many families and it seemed like the Adults Only guests were roomed close together. There was also an Adults Only pool next to a bar (the swim up bar in the main pool was closed). The new room was also closer to the restaurants and other entertainment. The resort ensured all staff were wearing masks and during the week when it wasn't as busy was checking everyone's temperature when entering the buffet (the only breakfast and lunch option). Very few guests were in masks, whether at the pool, the buffet, or walking around in general. It never felt crowded, but we noticed more people on Saturday when we were checking out. Also of note, we were told more rooms and things in the country in general would be opening up in December, so I would expect things to get more crowded then.

Great service, clean property and good food and drinks

Beautiful beach and the property outside/beach is constantly being maintained, and it is always clean and neat.

Second time we have stayed there and truly enjoy it.

Everything was close by - room, restaurant, pool, beach. Room was large, clean, good view. Beach was long, nice sand, large waves broke out on reef so water was nice to swim in. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Friendly and clean. Staff were amazing. The food was good. Would like to maybe have the buffet food warmer. Overall experience was fantastic..

Loved all of the food choices, the security, the cleanliness & the friendliness of all of the staff.

Beachfront was nice. Bars at poo areas were nice. Staff was friendly. The shower head was broken. The tv had a constant buzzing sound. Yhe toilet kept running every 5 min due to a poor tank seal.

Clean facility,w/nice beach Quiet generally, but good diversions handy Wide variety of food, courteous waitstaff Only negative is plethora of smokers and few restrictive areas

The staff and front desk was amazing and very helpful.

I am very satisfied with my vacation. It was a pure pleasure to spent a week in the paradise.
