Barcelo Bavaro Beach overview

Barcelo Bavaro Beach is an adults-only 5-star all-inclusive golf and beach resort, located on the front line of Bavaro Beach in Punta Cana. With 80% of the rooms located right on the beach, you’ll struggle to find as much of a Caribbean feel as any other resort. It has a sister hotel located next door, Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe, where guests can enjoy the many facilities on offer.

Golf Courses

Guests of the Barcelo Bavaro can enjoy exclusive tee-times at The Lakes Barceló Golf Course, located next to the hotels. The course was completely remodelled in 2010 by P.B Dye and is the newest addition to the collection of golf in the Dominican Republic. It is a par-72 Championship parkland golf course, measuring 6655 yards from the back tees.


This dream-like hotel has reinvented itself following a total overhaul to become an exclusive hotel for adults. The hotel rooms have a Caribbean feel and are finished with real value. The majority of rooms are located on the beach, making it the ideal spot for romantic getaways and holidays with friends or partners.

The hotel has 432 Superior Rooms, 79 Superior Frontal Ocean view rooms and 73 Superior Ocean Front rooms exclusively for guests on the “Club Premium” concept, who can also enjoy one of the five Master Suites on offer. The premium luxury at this resort is second-to-none and ideal if you are looking for a 5-star golf holiday.

The “Club Premium” concept gives extra exclusive benefits and services. This includes private check-in and late check-out, free Wi-Fi in rooms, an in-room VIP basket, lounge service, priority reservations at restaurants, golf and spa treatments, and so much more.

Restaurant & Bars

There are three restaurants and two bars onsite, with an extra 11 restaurants and 10 bars at the Barceló Bavaro Palace Deluxe – which guests also have the luxury of enjoying. The buffet, Caribe restaurant serves a variety of international cuisine and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. La Brisa is a buffet menu for lunch and an a la carte service in the evening specialising in Mediterranean cuisine. For drinks, you can sample Mamey Lobby Bar or the Bohio Chill Out Bar in the pool area.

Next door at the Palace Deluxe, there are seven A La Carte restaurants on offer. El Coral for fish and seafood, Santa Fe Steak House for a meat feast, La Dolce Vita if you fancy Italian, Mexico Lindo for Mexican delights, Kyoto as the Asian option, La Fuente for Spanish tapas and finally La Comédie if you’re in the mood for French cuisine.

In terms of nightlife, there are so many options to choose from. Why not sample Carey Bar in the main lobby, or have a liqueur in the Coffee, Rum and Cigar Bar & Lounge. For sports enthusiasts, you can enjoy the Strikers Sports bar, open 24 hours, or the Hoyo 19 for a beer after your round. There are also four pool bars, with Cielo Bar catering only for adults. For the players amongst you, why not spend the night at the Casino to test your cards skills. Finally, if you fancy partying even more, then you can enjoy the Bavaro Nightclub open until 3am.
