Hotel Barcelo, Punta Cana, 20 23000 Dominican Republic 


The Barceló Bávaro Grand Resort in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, resides on what National Geographic deemed as one of the top 10 beaches in the world. The well-appointed Caribbean resort comprises two properties—Barceló Bávaro Beach for adults, and the Barceló Bávaro Palace, which is more fitting for vacationing families—with an array of five-star amenities to suit all travelers, including an 18-hole golf course, more than a dozen restaurants, and guest rooms bordering Bávaro Beach. The resort’s U Spa, overlooking the sea, features its own range of magnificent accoutrements, from thermal swimming pools and private cabins with Jacuzzis to a full-service beauty salon and gym.
Notable nearby highlights include La Altagracia Church in Higuey Town, 40 minutes away by car, and day trips can be planned to further landmarks like the Colonial City of Santo Domingo, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, approximately three hours away.
