Foam parties on the beach or in the privacy of your suite… bowling, golfing, waterpark, Escape Room, and fresh crab in almost every form, this is what we call a family haven vacation. This place is massive. Stating that right upfront because there is no escaping its size. There’s even a continuously running tram, that looks like a train, to take guests from various parts of the resort to the other. It’s actually pretty cool. Since we mentioned size, its manicured lawns and beachfront location take your focus away from the size and puts you right into vacation mode.
Barceló Bávaro Grand Resort
Situated on over a mile of white sand on the renowned Bávaro Beach and protected by a coral reef that converts the Caribbean Sea into a natural pool. That makes swimming with the kids a breeze. I imagine vegas in the tropics when I hear the words massive and casino (Yes they have a casino too.) This 24-hour all-inclusive resort is comprised of the Barceló Bávaro Palace and the adults-only Barceló Bávaro Beach. There’s also a set of accommodations that sit right on the golf course, making this place ideal for those seeking to come on a more active vacation than sitting on the sand. This resort includes over 1,900 rooms, up to 13 dining experiences, five swimming pools, 24-hour casino, a theatre whos shows are meant to rival any vegas review, a water park for children and one for not so little ones, the state-of-the-art U-Spa, The Lakes Barceló Golf Course and so much more. Now you see why it needs as much space as it does. It’s required to keep everyone entertained and they do that here in such grand style. For those seeking a more elevated experience, the Premium Level accommodations offer some of the very best views, unlimited access to specialty restaurants and 24-hour room service, and exclusive check-in experience. Of course, there’s endless champagne upon check-in at this side of the resort. Well worth the upgrade.
