Barceló Punta Cana Reviews
Affordable, enjoyable, nothing outstanding Dec 30, 2014
We were not disappointed nor were we pleasantly surprised. Our stay was about what we expected.
First the negatives,
The shower was weak. There is only one waste basket. It was small. We had to be sure to dispose of waste accumulated on our excursions before we got back to the room. Reservations were needed for any of the restaurants. These could only be made in person at guest services from 7 AM to 3 PM. If you went on an excursion that took you out before 7 PM, you would be eating at the buffet. If you did not get there by 9 you had few perhaps no choices and were again stuck with the buffet.
Everyone was friendly. Food was OK to good depending on what you chose. Service was good. The area is beautiful. No one hounded us for tips. Some offered tips were refused.
Take time on day one to walk around and learn where everything is located. Plan on one of you getting out by 8 AM each day to make reservations for dinner, tennis, massages etc.
Entertainment other than the disco stops at 11 PM. The piano player in the one bar and the Sax player in another will stop promptly at 11. The show in the theater ends between 10:30 and 11:00 PM. The common areas were frequently filled with people playing cards or other games at all hours.
