I've been! Make sure you bring things like sunscreen, hand sanitizer and anti-diarrhea meds (better safe than sorry!). Those types of items are SUPER expensive there!

Most resorts have the most helpful staff. Ask them lots of questions they were so informative and friendly. They recommended the best beaches and restaurants, ones not necessarily in the brochures.

I found a link with some traveler reviews of your resort here:;cd=3&gl=ca

Have fun it is BEAUTIFUL!!!

I've been to Punta Cana a bunch of times, we stayed at Barcelo Premium. I loved it, it was wonderful. I agree bring your own sunscreen etc.

Huge thanks to *Kiliki* for the FANTABULOUS new siggy!!

I got married at the Barcelo Bavaro! That was in 2004 though.
DEFINITELY bring Immodium. We've been to a number of Caribbean/tropical places, but in the DR everyone that came to our wedding (17 people) had tummy issues at least once.

I have a little tip that I learned in Cuba my last trip there - if you've never been to the Caribbean before you really have to watch your sun exposure the first day or so, what they suggested was stay at the pool the 1st day, Then go to the beach after, because the breeze from the water is deceptive as to how hot it really is
and Enjoy Punta Cana!!
