Punta Cana Best Service for the price

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

Soy domininicano y he visitado varios hoteles en el pais, especialmente en la zona de Punta Cana y Bavaro y de todos el que me ha brindado la mejor experiencia de diversion, buen trato y comodidad lo ha sido este Barcelo Punta Cana Premiun. La calidad de su gente, Francis, el Mimo, Sandy en actividades, la camarista de nuestra habitacion. Todo fue fantastico, el caraoke, el area infantil y sobre todo el trapecio, excelente experiencia.
Definitivamente voy a regresar pronto.....

Unique Quality: Creo que el trapecio y la montana de escalar son sobresalientes. Nunca pense que tendria la experiencia de subirme a un trapecio como los cirqueros..

Wonderful, Wonderful Holiday

Travelled with my husband and 2 teenage daughters for Christmas vacation. The hotel was great. Read the reviews before travelling and was advised by my travel agent who had stayed there before that it was a good hotel. The girls loved the trapeze and the beach and the bars needless to say. Our rooms were clean, bar was stocked daily and rooms cleaned and fresh towels everyday by 2. We stayed in building 2 which is the newer section. But did hear of ants and patio doors not locking in the older section. From building 2 you could be on the beach in 3 minutes or the quiet pool. The beach you could walk forever on, my husband and I walked for an hour each day. Al a cartes' were great. We had 4 for the week and were not disappointed in any. Michael Jackson show is a must see. You would think you were watching the real M.J. Other shows maybe not so great circus show was good and entertaining. Bar by the pool/beach were not crowded and service was great. Zip Lining is worth every $89 p.p. The trip up the mountain is great. Make sure you take running shoes if going on this excursion. My husband and oldest daughter also went dune bugging! Take old clothes as you will be covered in mud! My youngest and I went swimming with the dolphins which was a great experience and would recommend it.

Directions: If going to the Punta Cana Shopping Plaza beware they are like sharks. They are hungry for your business. Coffee,vanilla and rum is cheap to buy there and souveniors. Remeber to barter with them. You most likely always get your price.

This resort was amazing. I couldnt believe that this was where we were staying. We booked one of the cheapest all inclusive deals we could find online and when we got there we were amazed at how nice it was. We requested the new part of the hotel and didn't pay the extra $200 for an ocean view, but when we got there we had one of the best rooms they had. It had an ocean view and a view of the main pool. It was centrally located and very comfortable. Everyday they stocked our mini bar.

The restaurants are pretty good (not so much the buffet). When you get there make sure to make dinner reservations for some of the restaurants they dont give you tickets for (El Mirador, El Conuco and El Marlin).

There is a disco downstairs that not everybody knows about, so round up some people and head on down.....it's not always busy, but it depends which day and time of the year you are there.

Drinks aren't all that. The alcohol is watered down and unless you get drunk off sugar you won't be fluttering much. If you want something to get tipsy off.....try the wine (sparkling was my favorite)

Don't miss the "Back to the future" show at the hotel theater......the Dominican Michael Jackson is the BEST performance you will ever see. It's like seeing Michael Jackson up close for FREE. His dance moves are amazing and he has the moon walk down like nobody else.

Unique Qualities: Great pools, amazing views, nice beach, friendly staff (when they're not hitting on you)

Keep your cool

You should bring a spare card with a magnetic stripe (like a visa, MC card but not someting that can bankrupt you) to keep the A/C running while you were out of the room. The card served the same purpose that your room key serves to keep the room and your mini bar cool. You place the card in a recepticle next to the door to your room.

The idea being that your room key serves this purpose but you need to take your key when you leave the room.

Unique Quality: If you walk to the right (if facing the ocean) down the beach approx a kilometer or a half mile you will find a flea market. Head towards the partially sunken supertanker.

Wonderful Stay

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay. The staff was so friendly and accomadating that I'm sure we will be back. The only mishap was the first evening we arrived, the room wasn't ready and the power went out... for a few hours, but the bartender's quickly made us forget that!! They had us tipsy and laughing in not time.

The food was decent in some resturaunts, great in others. There was enough variety for you to be able to find somthing to your liking.

I recommend bringing your own towels because sometimes they won't leave fresh ones everyday and you may not feel like waiting for them to bring some up. Also don' t drink the tap water, don't even use it to brush your teeth. YOU'LL BE SOORRYY!!

Unique Quality: The beach was OUTSTANDING!!! This resort is the last on the strip, so it probably has the largest beach out of all the other resorts. You can actually walk off the property along the beach a find a much more secluded, peaceful part.

The beach in Punta Cana is beautiful. This hotel is located right on the white sand beach and its closest resort is the Riu Bambu.

Right between the two hotels ( which are approx. a 10-15 min. walk apart) is a Dominican flee market where you can buy paintings, carvings, and souvenirs in many other forms for very good prices. Make sure you head to the market with Pesos instead of US Dollars s since there is a lesser chance of getting ripped off.
Also, please bargain with the vendors since their initial prices are not very realistic. If you do not wish to shop at the market, you always have an option of taking a shuttle bus to the Bavaro Shopping Center.

Unique Quality: on the newest part of the beach...still pristine....

Directions: Playa Arena Gorda, Carretera Macao
