The all-inclusive Barcelo Bavaro Palace sits on Bavaro Beach in the Dominican Republic's Punta Cana region. This large property boasts direct access to the white sandy beach and its extensive facilities include a high-end spa, an 18-hole golf course, a shopping centre, a casino, an escape room and 11 restaurants. There’s also a wealth of family-friendly facilities, such as a water park, mini-golf course, kids’ club and dedicated pool for children.

Bavaro Beach Palace lies on the eastern tip of the Dominican Republic, along one of the island’s finest beaches. A coral reef naturally protects its coastline, making these turquoise waters ideal for swimming, snorkelling and various water sports. You can explore the restaurants and bars along the beachfront, which stretches over a mile along the coast, before teeing off on the championship Lakes Golf Course, designed by Pete Dye. The resort even offers train shuttle transportation around its expansive property. Punta Cana International Airport is less than 11 miles from Barcelo Bavaro Palace.

The contemporary rooms and suites are spacious and open onto a private balcony or terrace, many of which include a hot tub with sea views. Most accommodation is huddled in the main resort area, close to the beach, but some rooms are located around the golf course. Families and groups will find more space and privacy in Family Junior Suites or two-storey Family Duplexes, which both include two separate bathrooms. When upgrading to a Premium Level room, you’ll receive additional benefits, such as 24-hour room service, a bottle of rum upon arrival, an upgraded in-room minibar and exclusive access to the Premium Level Lounge, where you can enjoy an express check-in, daily complimentary buffet breakfasts, canapes and drinks.

Barcelo Bavaro Palace has been recognised for embracing more sustainable practices. This includes a comprehensive recycling programme, motion sensor lighting and wind-powered heat extractors in resort. 

Dining information

The property has 11 restaurants that specialise in different cuisines. The eight a la carte restaurants serve seafood, steak, Japanese, Italian, Spanish, French and Mexican dishes. La Comedie, the French-themed restaurant, is only complimentary for those staying in Premium Level accommodation, but other guests can pay a supplement locally to dine here.

Two buffet-style restaurants serve international and local Caribbean fare for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There’s a 24-hour sports bar, where you can order bar snacks and drinks, and a wide choice of beach and pool bars around the property. Reservations are required at all a la carte restaurants.
