Bavaro Beach, Punta Cana

4.4
#1 of 437 in Outdoors in Dominican Republic
Backed by resort hotels, the white sands of Bavaro Beach stretch along the paradisal eastern coastline of the Dominican Republic. Azure waters lap the sun-drenched sands of this wide beach, an ideal spot for resting under a shady palm with a cold drink and a good book. If you're looking for a more active experience, you can swim, sail, or snorkel just offshore. To get away from the water for a while, play a round at one of the nearby golf courses or explore the strip of shops offering the usual tourist-oriented souvenirs and essentials.

    During the time we were there the beach was spoilt as due to all the sea weed being washed up on the beach . This cannot be avoided and is due to the elements and the weather. A digger arrived most da...  more »

    Upon arriving in Punta Cana we found that the airport has no air conditioning outside the gates of loading and unloading, that in the middle of summer Caribbean! To reach the hotel-it's paradise-was the Royal Service Lounge (lounge only to guests who pay a differential value and exclusively for people over 18 years old). There we are faced with a situation at least unusual: Although our stay was already paid, and confirmed by email from the hotel the receptionist required the card with that we had made a reservation and paid. Our reservation had been made and paid five months before, and in the meantime the card suffered MasterCard Platinum upgrade for Black ... We explain it and draw it to the receptionist. After we explain the design and we design the explanation ... but she said she knew that everything was already paid but wanted the old card to check in, even knowing that the Bank sends to destroy when you get the new ... We didn't and she demanded so that you show a photo of the old card to check in. (Who takes pictures of credit card???) When the receptionist realised we were leaving the serious and we were going to make a fuss about finally let us go up to the room. By the time the next day only managed to send me a copy of the invoice of the card of the month the reserve proving that everything was already paid, she was science. Taking these against time and diarrhea with vomiting and severe cramps that made me lose the last two days of the trip, confused and incompetent employees of American Airlines and the customs police confiscated items to me upon arrival were allowed without problems (a survival knife and a BB gun they had bought days earlier in Miami) ... it was all great! The hotel is wonderful. The beach is magnificent. Surprisingly good restaurants for a resort. The service-except the receptionist in the Royal Service-is splendid, with emphasis on junior, our Butler. The other hotel staff strives to make your stay unforgettable and paradise. Oh, and still found the cigars and rum that I wanted at the duty free, with great price.
