Depending on when you are there, the seaweed can be heavy. We went in November and it was heavy. Depending on your resort, the chairs and umbrellas are nice, but the beach is average. The sunsets are fabulous though!

We have visited there couple of times during our stay in Punta Cana and overall good beach to relax and swim. It is not that luxury beach or most attractive clean beach - but a decent beach to enjoy the breeze by the sea side.

The staff was just so friendly. If they did not understand you they would get someone who could. Was a most enjoyable vacation.

Definitely a dream come true staying on this all inclusive resort. We actually were there back in April 2002 not in Feb 2018 as stated but other date options weren't available to choose. Highly recommended from our experience!

Our first trip to Punta Cana we stayed along the Uvero Alto beach north of Bavaro beach, and the waves were much higher there. Bavaro is much more beautiful - the picturesque blue waters and white sand beaches, with small waves you can comfortably swim...More

Maybe because we stayed at a condo instead of a resort, but the beach was never cleared of the seaweed. It was horrible. It was everywhere and you couldn’t enjoy going into the water. Also, if you’re a female you couldn’t even enjoy the beach...More

Beach walks are amazing. Love the sand. Seaweed is cleaned up near most resorts. We walked 6 km and back on the beach one day. The next day 5 km and back the other direction from our resort

Very beautiful beach from one end to the other. All the beach is the same, only differentiating thing is how your particular hotel takes care of their portion. At the Princess Barvro All Suites Hotel & Casino, they rake up the seaweed and the sand...More
