Redesigned and remodeled by architect P.B. Dye in 2010, this par-72 course is one of the most popular spots to tee off in Punta Cana. Recent golfers said the only real downside to Barceló Bávaro's 18 holes is that they aren't situated near the ocean. Travelers say compared to the other golf courses located in Punta Cana, though, a round at "The Lakes" is quite a deal, adding that the course is in great condition. Some also recommend bringing extra balls since water is a major feature of the course.

The greenway is located on the grounds of the Barceló Bávaro Palace hotel, but open to outside guests as well. Day rates include equipment rental and hotel access, and hotel guests can make their reservations up to 90 days in advance. As with other courses, tee times here vary for hotel guests and non-hotel guests. For hotel guests, costs range from $50 to $75, depending on the season; for those not staying at the hotel, the cost is between $75 and $155, dependent on season and time of day. Visit Barceló Bávaro's website for more information.
