The resort is very big so there is a lot of walking but I didn't mind.
We were on the golf side so was a little ways from the main lobby but I didn't mind our view.
It rained one evening about 10 pm for about 15 minutes and the following morning when we were leaving for an hour or so off and on but you could tell it was going to clear and would be another great day.
Actually went back there two years in a row because of the weather and some of the other resorts didn't have nearly as nice temperatures. I was just there 1/9 - 1/15 and we had just missed a few days of rain...
The larger waves are usually seen a bit farther offshore and lose their strength once they hit the reef .
The all inclusive plan at the Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe includes the buffet restaurants.
They include Couples Tower Island, Club Ambiance and Hedonism in Jamaica. Did we just hit a bad week or is that fairly normal.
The water sports, entertainment and the spa also await your arrival. The staff was very nice and were all very friendly and helpful.at night you can reserve at the "a la carte" restaurants...nice and food is great.better than buffet. The average rainfall is 4.1 inches for the month of August.It is included as part of the all inclusive package. There is a per person charge for the french restraunt. We even ate the buffet at the Bavaro Beach (next door) one day. It is the rainy season, so it can rain a bit more than the rest of the year.Seaweed on the beaches but that's to be expected but seen people cleaning it up several times.I do suggest bringing your own cup so that way you don't spend so much time in line at bar for a tiny cup that you can finish in seconds they filled up our big cups to top every time.Feel free to call one our experienced destination specialists to discuss additional options. Our family went the same week in early January for the past two years.
