Undecided. Riu Palace Punta Cana or Barcelo Bavaro Beach?

Looking for a place to go with a group of friends in 30's. Which of the two (Riu Palace Punta Cana or Barcelo Bavaro Beach) is more lively, has more of a 30's age group?

More lively? Probably Riu Palace. Haven't been but have been to BBB. BBB is a quiet adults only resort. You do have access to the Palace Deluxe resort which is next door. There you would find the livelier pools, the large disco and the casino.

Sorry about that, what meant is that she has 3 posts going on now about the same subject but with different subject lines :)

Didn't mean to direct it at you.

I would out of those two prefer the Barcelo, as it def runs the much livelier Disco for the nighttime action, if that's what you look for.

and the Barcelo is located on the way better Beach, very spacy, very calm, picture perfect.

have fun

Have you considered the Riu Palace Bavaro?? We have been to both the Riu Palace 2 years ago and the Riu Bavaro last year and there is no comparison. We actually are returning to the Bavaro in 3 weeks. You won't be disappointed.

Which is the better beach though? Punta cana or Bavaro? We like a long stretch of beach with calm and clear waters.

Hi unsure of the where the Barcelo is, but where the riu palace Punta Cana is and the palace Bavaro which we prefer...the water is not calm, it's always has fun waves coming in, hopefully you'll find out about the other hotel.
