Barcelo Bavaro Deluxe casino

Hello all,

I'm looking for some feedback about the casino at the Barcelo Bavaro Deluxe. The information I've found online is pretty sparse.

Thanks!

Hi Davegr -

Not sure what kind of feedback you're looking for.

It's a pretty small casino, and if you're a real casino fan - something like Hard Rock would probably be a better choice.

As non-casino people I can't supply much info. They have slots, roulette, blackjack etc. We only played the roulette using the matchplay coupons so can't really give any info on the other games.

Thanks for the response...just looking for general opinions. Is it a tiny dingy casino not worth our time? Is it great and has lots to offer? Something in between?

Thanks!

Hi

I just returned from BBB 2 days ago.. Our group went to the casino 4 or 5 times.. It's between a 5-10 min walk, depending on speed of walking.. The train takes about 10 minutes or so.. Both are nice options.

The casino is small, but it is fairly nice, not opulence, but nice.. A couple hundred slot machines, penny, nickel, and quarter.. Can't recall seeing dollar ones, but unsure.

There was a Hold-Em table, blackjack, roulette, tables..

Overall it was nice, not Vegas luxury, but nice..

Cheers

Hi again,

Yes I will be doing a review when I get back in the swing of life here.. ;)

It is a really great resort.. I was a little Leary of it at first due to its size, which is twice as big as the last resort we visited(Catalonia Royal), which we all loved..

The rooms are very nice, no complaints with them at all.. The beach is jaw dropping gorgeous.. You can be in water up to your neck and still see your feet.. Truly special..

The restaurants were for the most part very good.. The Itallian was the worst by far ( please do not order the cannelloni... Seriously...) the best was Chez Gourmet on the BBB side ( bourbon marinated baby back ribs)...as well as the golf course restaurant Hoyo.. Delish burgers..

If you are a golfer, this is a great choice. My husband was in heaven.. You get a cooler on your cart filled with beer and drinks for the back 9..

The cappachino in the Rum/Cigar/coffee shop at the palace side was really good.. We went over every night for a cup. Totally worth the trip..

None of the 4 of us got even the slightest sick.. Overall ot is a really nice place, we would definately recommend it, as well as return.. If you have any questions, fire away, I'll try to help if I can..

Cheers.

Hi Catalonia -

I guess this question is more for your husband - Assuming he golfed at Catalonia as well Barcelo - can he give a comparison?

We are golfers and were at Barcelo last year and returning this April. Catalonia is on our short list of resorts with golf and are looking to book there in the future.

Hello,

My husband is roughly a 6-8 handicap, and the other couples husband is a former golf course manager, as well as having two professional golfer sons, so, to say the least, they are into it big-time..

They both agreed that although the golf at Catalonia ( pre-course refurb) was more than adequate, they much preferred the golf at Barcelo. You get picked up in a golf cart at the front entrance of either BBB or Palace, taken to the course, they cleaned and stored their clubs for them, and were promptly returned to our resort by golf cart when they were finished.. They both said they felt like royalty there..

With that being said, I am not sure exactly how much work has been done to the Catalonia golf course. I believe the refurb was completed in Nov 2012.

The good news is that choosing between the two resorts is a win-win situation. We would honestly return to both resorts..

Cheers.
