We had our bag stolen inside of the property. No one has done anything about it and we didn’t get compensated because it wasn’t and I quote “stolen from inside of the room “. It makes no sense since it was in their property with cameras all around. Just be careful when you stay there and don’t leave ur belonging unattended not even for 5 min

The service was very good and the food excellent. I will return next year. The only thing is that certain amenities have to be mentioned when you check in.

This property was one of the worst resort/hotels I’ve visited. I’ve done quite a bit of traveling so that says so much. The room was damp, Clam-y, when I first arrived one of the sinks did not work, lights broken, tv not working, the front desk made me wait an hour to have this trash room set up, mind you I got there at midnight, exhausted. The property is extremely strict about coming and going because it is full of thieves over pricing literally everything you can imagine, and they want you to stay so you can spend all your money with them. The food was soo bad. Many items expired, food reused from breakfast to lunch to dinner, food reused from one buffet to the second. It all tasted sour which means it has gone bad. The reservation restaurants were not any better, they offer you small portions so you have to go to the buffet after to satisfy your hunger(I usually ate fries and bread and butter to survive) I literally got a portion of pasta thaT had 4 raviolis in it, as an adult in one of the restaurants (chez gormet, you can confirm with them all of this is the most candid response you will read) You waste over an hour there receiving mediocre service and food, leaving hungry every time. I tried over 5 restaurants, one more awful the next. The drinks there (alcohol) were so poorly made, and the alcohol given was most likely some well cheaper than cheap liquor mixed with water I kid you not. The staff does not eat there food or drink the drinks there, which says something.

Resort was very clean and well maintained, staff was friendly. This resort is connected to the Barcelo Bavaro Palace, which is much larger and essentially where all the dinner restaurants are. Unless you want to eat every meal in the buffet. Food was adequate, except for the El Coral. We were given menus in Russian and when we asked the server for a version in English we were rudely shuffled off a different server. His response was you don't need a menu you want the lobster. Without menus, we agreed. This was the absolutely worst lobster I've ever tasted and my wife's lobster looked like it had been sitting out dead for days before they served it. She won't touch it. Drinks were so watered down we had to buy a bottle of rum to attempt to fix them. If you want a very quiet stay and don't mind walking 1/2 mile for dinner or riding the shuttle, the hotel was clean.
