Super Friendly staff always ready to help. The food was okay the drinks were fantastic. We stayed at the adults only side it wasn’t as lively as we thought it would be. The Beaches were a let down because of the Seaweed. The rooms are a little dated 70’s to 80’s but the A/C was very nice.

The beach is beautiful, but during our stay almost always with lots of sargassum/algae (and it seems to be not cleaned much, in the hotel we stayed -Occidental Punta Cana- they seem to clean 3x,4x/day, but it´s a difficult situation).

We were told this was the best beach in Punta Cana but unfortunately we never went in. The Caribbean is experiencing a seaweed problem and it was definitely not under control. We traveled so far for the clear blue waters and white sand beaches of the Caribbean only to find we couldn't really want to access it from our hotel. Mountains of seaweed, brown murky water and too many party boats and fishing boats allowed to park on the horizon. We really wanted to see the vastness of the sea with beautiful blue water and white sandy beaches. The beach itself felt more like the brown beaches of Galveston Texas. IT was the only bad part of our entire holiday. For the water and sand you want - take a tour to Soana Island.

I am not sure why Bavaro Beach is ranked number one this list. It is covered in seaweed, and the water is not very clear. Macao Beach is far superior. They do their best to clear the seaweed, but because of the heat, the large heaps of seaweed stink and the smell drifts up towards the hotels and markets.

Our resort was on this beach. It is a quieter spot as you walk both ways on the beach - due to the only adult resort we were at. It has nice sand and you can swim here. It is close to a little shop as well that sells touristy stuff, sunscreen, snacks, etc.

Not sure if it is the time of year or not but the seaweed was crazy, not a pleasant experience getting in the water. Had to opted for the pool to cool off.

i am sure you can find some nice parts of this beach. however in ou 7 days here and one long walk i can not say we found any redeeming properties. it certainly is pretty from your hotel pool. but many of the hotels are warm down collapsing disasters. the beach is full of seaweed. ans the boats ans just ugly. go elsewhere
