With the beach, casino and golf it was (still is) the barcelo complex, the palace deluxe is getting some really good reviews as well.

Yes - it sounds like the Barcelo compex - 3 hotels along the beach (The Beach,the Caribe and the Palace (adult only) and 2 more back from the beach (Casino and Golf). The big fountain was in front of where the Casino hotel was originally.

The old Palace is now the Barcelo Bavaro Beach and the remaining 4 are all part of the Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe.

How about a resort from 1986! We stayed at a resort that we think was called the Bavaro Beach Resort. When I'm down there in July I'm wondering if I would be able to find the site of that resort. I'm going to assume that the resort is gone or made into something else.

Braiger - that is the same resort .

It started with the just the one hotel in 1986 and grew into 5 hotels in the complex. The entire complex went through reconstruction and is consolidated into the 2 names - Barcelo Bavaro Beach and Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe (the original hotel is part of the Palace complex - just the room buildings structures would remain from 1986)

Craiger,

As there was only 3 resorts in 1986, more than likely it was the orginal Barcelo Beach Resort. Our first visit was in 1996 and as stated above, the resort has grown and changed in many ways since 1986.

Visit this site for some old pictures of the Barcelo Beach Resort.

Use the search section above the monthly archive on the right side of the page and enter punta cana history. You can also click on the small tag cloud (punta cana history ) found below the monthly archives.

Enjoy

you've ben visiting the Barcelo Beach Resort back in da day.

nothing as of building structures will remind you of the former look, but the beach is still exactly the same, just that it has now neighbours side by side, the beautiful wild of 86 is def goone since a decade.

have fun

Mike
