Barcelo Dominican Beach Resort

Pros

  • Lowest priced resort in the Barcelo complex
  • Fun party scene with a younger crowd than its neighbors
  • Pretty beach area and an active beach bar (some waits)
  • Rooms have newer bedding (no more patterned bedspreads)
  • All rooms have coffeemakers, minibars, and free safes
  • Three pools and a swim-up pool bar
  • Weekly organized beach parties

Cons

  • Not ideal for romantics –- mostly a young, party crowd here
  • Cheaper prices means cheaper everything (including food and beverage quality)
  • Wi-Fi not only costs money but is a challenge to connect to
  • Unreturned beach towels during check-out garner a charge
  • Evening performances do not change nightly
  • Beach chairs during the day can be difficult to snag
  • Limitations on a la carte restaurants (one restaurant per visit)
  • Outside vendors are a common annoyance on the beach

Bottom Line

With over 700 rooms in this section alone, the Dominican Beach all-inclusive property (the cheapest in the Barcelo lot) is perhaps best suited for a young, party crowd - think international groups and spring breakers. Food and beverage options are impressive in number - seven bars, seven a la carte restaurants, and three buffets - but not impressive in quality. There are three pools and a lovely white-sand beach studded with palm trees, though outside vendors can be a nuisance. Rooms are basic and bright with white linens and nice-sized terraces but there is a fee for Wi-Fi and it can be a challenge to connect.

Scene

A huge, beachfront resort

The Dominican Beach resort is the more casual and therefore lesser-priced area of the entire Barcelo complex. Lines are common during check-in (don't expect early check-ins here) and the front desk staff - many who do not speak fluent English - will get through the line at a relaxed pace, and yet fail to explain anything about the resort. The lobby is a big, breezy space with high ceilings. In between a day at the beach and dinner, guests tend to gather in the cozy lobby bar for drinks.
