Serenity is a word often used to describe the Barceló Bávaro Palace Deluxe resort and its surrounding scenery (for good reason!) This 5-star hotel features a 1.2-mile-long beach that’s famously known as one of the most pristine waterfronts in all of Punta Cana. An offshore coral reef protects the beach from crashing waves, creating an atmosphere that seems purposely made for basking in the sun and sea.
Tear yourself away from the comforts of the hotel and you’ll find yourself in picture-perfect community of Punta Cana. Facing the Caribbean Sea on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other, Punta Cana is a dreamy destination with turquoise waters, must-visit cultural sites, award-winning restaurants, and long stretches of sandy coastline.

Don’t worry, you won’t just be wowed by the beaches on property. With multiple levels of relaxation, including four swimming pools, waterfalls and hammocks abound, you’ll be sure to get your fill of peace and quiet. Take your pampering up a notch with a visit to the state-of-the-art U-Spa, complete with water therapies, a beauty center, therapeutic massages, thermal swimming pools, a steam room, Jacuzzis, private cabins and more (if you can believe it).
After a day in the sun, retreat back to the confines of your sure-to-be spacious and well-appointed accommodations. Each room is equipped with raindance showers, a minibar, flat-screen TV and lavish bedding to ensure a total embrace of luxury. Although you may find it difficult to peel yourself away from the tropical comforts of your room, we recommend exploring the 11 specialty restaurants on property (of course, room service is always an option, too!)
Ideal for everyone from solo travelers to honeymooners and large multi-generational guest lists, Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe is home to gourmet dining at its best. Seven of the restaurants offer sophisticated eats (and may require a reservation), while others make afternoon snacks and dinner with the kids a stress-free experience. The inclusion of more than 10 bars means you can order a tropical cocktail, a local rum or your favorite Dominican beer in nearly every corner of the hotel.

Parents can rest assured that their kids are safe at the Barcy Kids Club while enjoying a romantic meal or an evening at the nightclub, casino, or sports bar onsite.
