Barceló Santo Domingo

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Staff was very courteous and when I need something they were there is minutes.

Needs more on shower cleanliness and the wifi is bad. Other than that I would recommend it if the fares stay low

If u are from US this is hotel for you..feels like a legit hotel stay from home...Nothing old or terrible here..no complaints and surprised I had no issues what so ever..easy check in and check out..staff is friendly

To make the hotel an even better experience, more of the hotel staff needs to be fluent in English. Other than that, The Barcelo Santo Domingo Hotel is an excellent hotel, with great staff. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

Great hotel at a great price. City center close to all

Great hotel in a great location. You will not find a better hotel at this price.

I have nothing bad to say about this Hotel. Great price, excellent location.Stayed here many times and always the same Great experience.

Very nice. Maybe under rated. Good bed. Good furniture. But wifi is not free but should be. Otherwise I would have given excellent ratings

I was excellent the employee was very pleased the room was very good

I've stayed at this hotel several times and they're level of service has reminded cosistent. The chain is also a supporter of international development.

Ir was no a good Customer service experience with the "premium checkin" Anny the representative was very rude and unprofessional .

I've stayed at this hotel multiple times and I loved it. However, this time (July 2016) I had some frustrating moments. My car got damaged in the hotel parking lot, my personal stuff slowly disappeared. I would stay in this hotel again but with my luggage locked.

Staff are excellent food is very good and if u stay at the club it's fantastic

The hotel looks great and the room also looked great. We will definitely recommend this hotel to a friend. It is closed to many interesting places (restaurants and malls).

The Premium Club was particularly nice and convenient.

Great place, good food and accomodations.. Wifi is a little slow.. But overall , a great place to stay!!

Clean location, excellent staff and great price for all that you have access to. I would highly recommend this location.

The hotel itself was decent. We went as a group for business. Our door keys were consistently not working. Some of us had to go down to the front desk to get it fix almost daily. The front desk was not always cheerful. There is one main lady there who was annoyed to be there but the gentlemen in the front were awesome. Buffet food was good as we ate there daily. Breakfast and dinner are about the same price. Basically the same food daily/nightly. Fruits were fresh and sweet, which was much appreciated. A lot of reviewers asked for free wifi but truly, just bring your own global data plan and save yourself the headache of their wifi being less than ideal. What they could improve with is the daily ONE bottle of water in the room. We all had one bottle of water in the room 50 of the time. A couple of us didn't even get the daily bottle of water. What are you suppose to drink the coffee in the room with??? One member of our group had bed bugs and had to switch rooms. The location is not ideal if you want to go just outside the hotel to see the community. The pool is great, big and clean. The gym is old and without proper ventilation. Don't drive there, get a taxi. Overall, the hotel is very pleasant, definitely 3.5 stars. Most of the staff were friendly. We had issues but in the end, our requests were met. Would not stay there again but it's because I want to see more of the city next time.

we were visiting family in Sto Dgo and this hotel was very nice to stay in. The kids loved the pool!
