Barcelo Punta Cana Prestige

Hi, I was just wondering if anyone has been to this particular resort. I have heard the Barcelo brand is very nice.

Any words of advice for this resort?

Is it stay at one and play at them all?

Best rooms in new section? (I’ve heard they try to stick you into the old section sometimes? hmm)

I think I got a really good price at $698 plus tax (for February). I usually stay at the Riu resorts in the past and liked the stay at one play at them all option. Thought I’d give Barcelo a try.

thx alot…love the forums!

Hi Badboy, I am staying at the Barcelo Punta Cana Prestige in January, I don’t believe it is a sister property to any others. I think it is a resort all of its own. It is on the left to the Grand Paradise Bavaro and I don’t know if there is another resort close on the right or not. But it is not a stay at one play at all resort. But you are correct, from what I read you might want to upgrade to a new room when you get there. I think I read that it is 15.00 a night per person. Enjoy your trip, I am looking forward to mine…cervesas here we come…

about 200 yards to the right is the Moon Palace resort (has been under construction for almost 2 years - might open Jan 2009) - left of GPB is Majestic Colonial/Elegance

The Barcelo Punta Cana is quite a ways up the beach from the Barcelo complex (Caribe, Beach, Palace, Golf & Casino). Hubby and I stayed at the complex (Caribe section) before and now going with friends to try the BPC in Dec.
If you are looking for stay n’ play vacation the Barcelo complex is nice. You get to use all of the facilites except for some stuff at the Palace. We even got a free round of golf and casino match n’ play coupons. Keep in mind though that with the 5 resorts in one the property is huge!
The BPC looks fantastic and we always enjoy where ever we go so I’m sure we’ll have a blast as always! ;D
