Barcelo Bavaro Beach Renovations

Just wondering if anyone knows if the renovations are now completed. When I looked a month ago the website said the Beach Resort was closed until further notice due to renovations. Now their website doesn’t mention anything about the renovations.


We called just recently (we normally stay at the Palace) and were told that the Palace Deluxe Suites are, in fact, the renovated rooms at the Beach. It appears that the renovations are finished based on our conversation (we speak fluent spanish). We toured the renovated rooms last May with the Beach manager and the rooms are quite impressive, but more expensive than the Palace at this point. The ‘regular’ Palace will be the next to be renovated. We are hoping that renovation will be as good. We have been regular clientes of the Palace for the last 12 years and still think it has the best beach in Punta Cana. We have never been disappointed.

Thanks for the reply. We are heading down in Feb. for our 6th visit. We have stayed in the Beach section twice and the Caribe section 3 times. There hasn’t been many reviews lately so I couldn’t tell if there would still be construction going on and if everything would be open.
Again, thanks for replying.

We stayed at the Casino in early December, the old ‘beach resort’ and new suites were closed. Only the carib, casino and palace were open. It looked close to being completed. Many ocean view rooms with outdoor baths.

I’m looking at Barcelo Bavaro Palace for Feb 15 for our family. The price seems pretty good and my husband was thinking of golfing this year. Is the golf course right there, or do you need to drive to it? Does anyone know if the “deluxe junior suites” are the renovated ones and if there’s a sofa bed that my 12-year-old can sleep on?

I have never waited this long to book before, and I’m getting worried. I need to make a decision!

Are any rooms left at the Beach resort or have they all been added to the Palace?
Jean, the golf course is on the resort grounds.

i got info last week by a rep working there who told me that part of the former Beach hotel(the buildings located on the side towards the Palace) are done as suites and will be sold as the De Luxe Suites. the Beach hotel will finally have 2 lobbies, one for check in and one for check out. when the renos at the Beach hotel are finished the Caribe will be closed for renos, afterwards the Golf and the Casino hotel. that means the whole resort will get a full makeover. been time for such, the location of the Barcelo Bavaro Beach Resort is the best beach location in the whole Bavaro area, with the rooms up to date they may come back to be a top spot. during the last years they decreased immense in case of services and for outdated rooms aso.
happy travel
