I went with my 3 girlfriends for 8 days and booked through an american site. First problem came when we got there. Our travel agent said the hotel would provide us transport from and to the airport, but they never showed. Instead we took a cab for 40$ there and 40$ back. Which ended up being cheaper than what the...

Just returned from a 5 day stay at Barcelo with two other friends. We were pretty disappointed in the resort and wouldn't stay there again. We had a "renovated" room in Building 3. The room was clean enough and decent, though I cannot imagine what the lesser rooms were like, as there was absolutely nothing special about ours. The walls...

First stay at Barcelo and Dominican Republic. My husband and I went for our anniversary and overall it was a good time. Make your reservations in the AM if you don't get the restaurant you wanted the buffet is ok and they change up the food. The food was ok, not great. The front desk told us we needed to...

This was my 2nd trip to Barcelo Punta Cana. Again it was a wonderful experience. The staff at this hotel is a pleasure. The pools are nice and the beach is absolutely wonderful. Our cleaning lady (LLayssa Arias Caro) was top notch. She made our stay an absolute pleasure. My children and I can't say enough great words about her....

I stayed here for a week with a few friends back in May 2010. The hotel grounds were beautiful. The pools were both very nice. The beach is stunning. It is very big, the sand is white and soft and the water is clean and blue. It can be a bit windy and the water can be wavy but it...

Our week at Barcelo started out very good. We arranged airport transfers from the hotel services, which was cheaper than what I had found on my own. It was fast and a private car. Arrive at hotel along with everyone else checking in and that took some time which was ok with me, But the lobby was HOT, open air...

The resort was beautiful. The activities were great! The customer service could have been better. Getting towels, water, and our room serviced was like pulling teeth. Making reservation for restaurants was also awful. We only were able to eat in one restaurant, because reservations were booked prior to 10:00 am. The reservation desk was open from 9-4, and the line...
