Barcelo Villas Bavaro

Playas De Bavaro No 7

The IFA Villas Bavaro Resort & Spa occupies a privileged spot in Punta Cana’s Playa Bavaro zone. Guests of the all inclusive retreat are just steps from one of the world’s most beautiful beaches. Among the beach-related activities that can be enjoyed at no extra cost are snorkeling, windsurfing, body boarding, and sailing in small catamarans. The list doesn’t end there, and Villas Bavaro guests can find plenty of ways to keep busy on land as well. Playing tennis and partaking in aerobics classes are just two examples of land-based activities. As the resort’s name implies, it features a spa, so guests can also look to indulge in spa treatments.

The IFA Villas Bavaro Resort & Spa isn’t a five star resort, though it has a rather upscale edge and offers attractive grounds. Also of note are its wonderful facilities. Among the facility highlights is the beautiful main pool area, which is dotted with palm trees and can be found in the center of the resort complex. Two other pools complement the main pool, and there are special swimming areas that are reserved for children. On the dining front, the Villas Bavaro offers seven restaurants, and meals are included in the upfront rates. This includes both buffet and a la carte meals. Complementing the seven restaurants are seven bars and a disco, and the resort provides a full program of nighttime entertainment for guests who want to keep the fun going after the sun goes down.

The Villas Bavaro guest units are housed in bungalows and larger buildings that have either two or three floors. Some offer ocean views, and while none are overly luxurious, they are all tasteful enough and provide quite a lot in the way of amenities. Flat screen TVs, mini refrigerators, hair dryers, and air conditioning are among the standard in-room amenity highlights.
