Critic Reviews



Barceló deserves loud applause for transforming an aging, middle-of-the-road has-been to a glamorous complex of two resorts worthy of gushing praise, which is popular with both tourists and locals. ... All rooms have a clean, contemporary design and exceptionally comfortable beds.


The adults-only Bavaro Beach is the smaller resort in the Barcelo Bavaro complex, and offers the tranquil vibe of a smaller property, but the extensive features of a mega-resort, including a spa, fitness center, golf course, and numerous pools. However, most of these amenities are about a five-minute shuttle ride away at the Barcelo Bavaro Palace.
