Spacious apartments and amazing food
Great apartments, food, pools, bars and customer service. Beach was below our expectations (lots of seaweed, cleaned daily but still some of it remained on the beach). Much quieter than Catalonia Bavaro which is for families with kids. Overall, I would recommend this hotel for couples in the Punta Cana / Bavaro area. As others have already mentioned, I recommend you to avoid the Exclusive Travelers Club sales people. We've lost >1 hour before they even started the actual presentation which was scheduled to be 1,5h). After 1 hour it turned out that they expect you to pay >7000 USD on the same day for some dubious "benefits", like discounts for future holidays, so we decided to not continue with the presentation. I do not recommend the gift shops which you could find if you walk along the beach to the right. They are not part of the hotel. In two of these shops when we tried to buy rum, they offered us bottles of Brugal Extra Viejo for 13 USD which would be a great deal, but the bottles had marks of being opened (they probably were refilled). Fortunately we noticed this, turned them back and got back our money.

Modern hotel with a very good service
May be not located on the best beach of Punta Cana, but one of the most modern 5* hotel of the area. The pools, the facilities and the bars / restaurants are more than expected. There is more sunbeds than clients. Don’t wake up too early just for placing your towels!!! Very pleasant, spacious, well furnished rooms even if the beds comfort (a bit hard) and the soundproofing (slaming doors...) can be improved. The staff is oversized. Except for some crowded nights (new year’s eve), so you never wait at the plenty of very good bars and restaurants. The managing staff is very friendly and avaible. The NYE was just amazing : red lobster, stone crabs, fresh prawns, foie gras, angus beef, etc.

Not Ready to Open and BEACH IS A MESS
I stayed at the Riu Palace Bavaro prior to this (and paid $50 less per night there) and was disappointed when I got here. It's a nice little property (much smaller than the Riu Palace) and adults only, which appealed to me. But this property did not provide the same value. The rooms are nice and staff mostly friendly, but there are lots of problems they need to resolve. First, the beach. It smelled like sulfur as you approached (and the smell was so pungent you couldn't endure it for more than a few minutes). It looked like there was some red algae or something, and it was full of seaweed. The other properties I had been to did not have this issue, and THEY MADE NO MENTION OF THIS AT CHECK IN. The pool was too small for all the people there are as a result, so I didn't even bother. The guests were loud and noisy (I get this is the Caribbean and people are on vacation, but it was noisier than a kids pool). The food was ok- there was only one restaurant open for regular seating. The food was decent, I was genuinely confused about what other restaurants were open though. I did take advantage of room service- the food was ok- cafeteria quality food. I don't think I'd stay here again. It might have been better had I gotten a room with my own pool, but even those were small (think kids pool sized). Also, the infinity pool is not an infinity pool. Not sure how they get away with that.

Best Quarantine Getaway
The staff was amazing, very friendly and accommodating. They maintained safety and cleanliness during this era of Covid. The food was amazing and the WiFi was solid. Best bang for your buck!

Fair 4.0
The room was very humid and smells like a cave. The restaurants were ok but in comparison with other hotels we had in the past in Punta Cana this was very disappointing.

Good 6.0
Nice all-inclusive resort
The positives: The resort is beautiful. The rooms are clean. The staff is very nice and helpful The negatives: The food is mediocre. The drinks are so watered down that you cant taste any alcohol. The guys selling timeshare were very annoying.
