As a wedding photographer my most favorite amenity at Barcelo Bavaro were the ELEVATORS! When shooting a wedding we have tons of gear we are hauling around all day and the fact that they provided elevators around their property made me very happy 🙂
Barcelo Bavaro was about 25 min or so from the airport by taxi.
We really enjoyed the more intimate feel of the resort. This particular resort was the smallest we have been to in Punta Cana, however we loved that about it! There was no need to catch trolleys or trains to get around the resort. Amanda and I enjoyed dinner on the golf course each night right outside of our building. It was also very neat to have our patio open up onto the golf course with a very relaxing atmosphere.
On our day off we walked down the beach and took a boat out to the coral reefs and snorkeled. The beaches in Punta Cana are always covered in seaweed, however, if you take a boat out past the surf you will find crystal clear turquoise waters.
Overall Barcelo Bavaro is a nice resort and I would recommend it to anyone for a nice getaway.
