In-room Wi-Fi costs extra in standard accommodations
Flanking the southern tip of Punta Cana's resort strip alongside its sister property, Barceló Bávaro Beach, the all-inclusive Barceló Bávaro Palace promises prime access to soft sands and green fairways, not to mention an on-site casino. However, some guests feel that this resort doesn't live up to its word, citing subpar cuisine at the 11 on-site restaurants and lackluster customer service. But those who cite a pleasant stay here attribute their enjoyable experience to the resort's beautiful grounds and spacious guest rooms and suites, which come equipped with high-tech amenities like flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations and Wi-Fi access (for a fee in standard accommodations). The resort also offers plenty of entertainment for children and families, as well as kid-friendly facilities like two water parks and a children's pool. With the kids out splashing, weary parents can indulge in a massage or facial at the property's spa.

Couples, families, and partiers all mingle seamlessly at the property. Though the adults-only sister property has a slightly more romantic vibe, plenty of couples opt to stay here as it is where most of the features are located.
