Fodor's Review

Barceló deserves loud applause for the incredible face-lift that has totally transformed this property from an aging, middle-of-the-road has-been to a glamorous complex worthy of gushing praise. On verdant grounds brushing up against a luscious beach, this expansive, always-bustling compound now boasts a gorgeous new clubhouse, called Casa Club, which showcases a jaw-dropping spa and fitness center, high tech’ kids clubs, shops, two large swimming pools, dual lobbies,

a game room, Internet café, 10 handsomely decorated restaurants, a piano bar, theater and casino. There are now two distinct resorts to meet various budgets and preferences. The family-friendly Barceló Bávaro Palace Deluxe is the top of the line. The Barceló Bávaro Beach and Convention Center is adults-only, and in addition to the clubhouse dining rooms, it has its own fine buffet and a French restaurant. All resort guests get a half-price discount at the 18-hole golf course. Among the diversions are horseback riding. The constant shuttle is a necessity.
