The staff in general was somehow rude, they are not very good about giving information or helping the guests. The food was not good at all. The hotel is nice One of the things that I liked about the hotel was the show, the dancers are very good and handosome, the girls are very pretty and the costumes very nice. The disco is very nice with direct access to the beach. They have several swimming pools and one of them is right next to the beach. In general the rest was ok. We had a nice time and enjoyed the weather and the beach.

This hotel is by far the worst. I have stayed in many types of hotel and this one has been the WORST. The food always had flies in it when we were going to serve ourselves. The rooms smelled like mold and the service was horrible. I have stayed in 3 to 5 stars hotels and this one does not deserve even half of one star. all over the country so please check those other places out. Don't go to Barcelo Capella to get sick and frustrated.

The front desk staff is very friendly and helpful- all facilities is nearby. The food are excellent with a lot of choice memu- the room service is clean. The only inconvenient is the key of the room who is computerized and is something deactivated to open the doors of the room. While I was there the internet computer access wasn't working properly. The night entertainent shows are excellent. Try some of sightseeing offering at the hotel - Like the Safari, and the other tours they are excellent. Walk three blocks from the hotel in the left side to The exchange money place to buy a cell telephone for $15 and buy a telephone card to get connected to the outside world that the cheapest way to call. Across the street from the hotel you find everything you needed, a pharmacy is only two blocks away from the hotel. The location are excellent and the staff are superb. I went with my family ( a teenager daughter) we all enjoy the scenery and all day activities the hotel offers, dances classes, language course in Spanish, the security staff are excellent - will visit the place again and will recommend them for a best place for vacation and relaxation.

the hotel was very good but if you speak spanish everybody outside and inside the hotel will try to sell you anything (such as dominican rum, shirts, necklaces,etc). if you dont tell the maid to wash the bed sheets they left the same for all your stay. the pool was more or less (have some dirt in it). very good activities in the pool area. the beach was not good at all ( have a beautiful view at dawn but not good for swimming). always verify the A/C in the room and if its not freezing go to the front desk so they verify it. the taxis in the airport are $45.00 more or less but if you call the hotel they will transfer you to a tour person that will get you a taxi for $40.00. the persons that work in the hotel are very friendly. the food is good but if you try the buffet it will be the same everyday ( try all three restaurants including the one near the beach, for me its the best but only with reservation). beautiful hotel architecture all around. and for conclude if you are going to do something do it yourself if you can, because for anything you need help the people in the hotel will ask you for money (and Im not talking about taking the luggage to your room)

We really enjoyed our stay, Feb 8th to 15th, 2009. Check in was prompt and organized. We arrived before check in time, but were given our wrist bands and went for lunch and beach time. Rooms were great, in the 4000 section and bottom floor with a view of beach. Hotel staff friendly and knowlegeable. Very clean rooms. Food was typical. We have been in the DR before and knew what to expect. But lots of variety at the restaurants. No problems geting reservations at the al a carte restaurants. Did not use the French restaurant. Would stay there again.

Small ants were around the sink area but we had no problems with them. Our toilet handle broke during our stay and the smoke detector started beeping. We called the front desk and within minutes they had a maintenance worker come and repair the problem. With my surprise the next day a worker came by and ask how was everything working. That was and excellent service!

Everything about this place was absolutely wonderful! The food was great, the service was amazing, and the ocean was beautiful. The hotel rooms were not the greatest, but who goes to a resort to stay in your room all day anyway? We didn't have any problems with checking in and there was a huge variety of food for even the pickiest eater. There were a lot of activities for kids (although we didn't bring our daughter) and the nightly shows were always fun. Our only complaints come from the shuttle to and from the airport, but that's seperate from the hotel. Having a girlfriend who speaks Spanish helped a lot, but having to speak some Spanish should be expected when you travel to a Spanish-speaking country. We stayed for a week and I never got used to the scenery and beauty of the place.

Service was excelent from all hotel personnel,including supervisors, cooks, bartenders, waitress,even the garden keepers. This is a hotel dedicated to maintaining all areas in tip top shape. You see personnel claning the dinning eating areas right after each meal, painters doing paint touch-up to areas where needed, gardeners clipping/trimming plants and bushes, etc. Bartenders serve you with a smile and a greeting, etc.

I stayed at the Barcelo Bevaro Palace in Punta Cana and the differences between both resorts are very obvious. The Barcelo Capella is lacking in service as well as quality of the rooms, food, friendliness, calls for service etc. One of the beds in my room was broken and it took them 3 full days to fix it with no apologies offered. The Air conditioner in my room was mostly blowing warm air in a wheather where a good AC is essential. Two of my friends became very ill after possibly food poisoning. The alcohol included is also poor quality and when I asked about their run "Brugal" and compared the to the resort in Punta Cana, I was told that they run things different and that they had to make changes due to budget issues. Overall, I do not reccommend this resort until they resolve their issues. However, to be completely fair, there were many good hard working employees who seemed to carry the dead weight of the other less than friendly employees through activities and appeared to be sincere in entertaining the crowd. Even if this resort may save you a little money in a package deal, I would rather pay more for a better service somewhere else.

This hotel was so beautiful in my eyes. My husband stayed in the same hotel on a previous guy trip and he completely under sold the beauty of the place. The hotel is big and the landscaping is amazing. All of the pools are clean and well kept and the beach is lovely. The dinning area is clean and comfortable. The day staff that are in charge of the activities are very friendly and a lot of fun. The night shows are fun and exciting; even if you don't speak the language you can still get a good laugh. The only negative aspect of the whole trip was the people that sell there goods on the beach can be a little annoying but you can definitaly get a good deal from them.

Barcelo Capella has very nice scenery and atmosphere but some of it employees lack customer service etiquette. In addition their fitness center is horrible. Their equipment was not only updated but run down and small. In the other hand the setting was beautiful. Hotel constructed beautifully even thought elevator was unconstruction, and food was excellent. Over all from a range from 1 -10. I give Barcelo Capella a possible seven. They really need to tell their employees, especially the waiters, waitress and employees at the front desk, that people pay good money for good service and would like to be treat equally and special in their stay in their facility. It would be a shame if this continue and nice resort as Barcelo be closed down for people who does not take their job seriously.

" There are no 5 star resorts at a 3 star prices. But for what you pay, this is a tremendous value. The rooms are nice neat big and clean. The beach is rocky in most areas but there is a place where you can swim with no problem. The food and drinks are plentiful with a good selection and are included. There is always interesting fresh fruit at every meal. If you don't want to spend a lot of $$ and are just looking to lay on a beach, eat drink and get a tan, this place is great. I would go back in a minute."

This hotel was horrible. I would not stay here again or recommend it to anyone. The service at the reservation desk was unsatisfactory. There were lines all day long. On the day that we checked-in, it took us 3 trys to get a room. The front desk never apologized even when tears were running down my face from frustration. Each time we were assigned a room it was always occupied. We were given keys to these rooms and we were able to walk right in only to find surprised guests looking right back at us! Finally when we were given a room the shower did not work. We called maintenance but nobody ever came. The room itself was dirty. The toilet handle was rusted and crusted with green residue. The amenity basket had a used bar of bath soap stuffed back into its orginal box and it was never replaced throughout our 4 night stay. There were a trail of ants that lead under the bed. The bed itself was very lumpy and appeared that the top sheet had not been changed for some time. We always locked our valuable items in the safe, however someone from our group had their passports, jewelry, and other values stolen from the safe (it happened during a room switch, their bags were prematurely taken to the new room, but not the valuables in the safe). They never recovered their items. The buffet had the same food everyday: breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Reservations were required inorder to eat at the restaurants and the times were not flexible (ie. we were 30 minutes late coming back from our city tour and the restaurant was not able to accomodate us, so we ended up in the buffet-okay that was probably our fault but they would not allow us to make a reservation for a later time). There was an extra charge for room service (and this is all-inclusive?). The beach was not safe to walk on even with rubber slippers. There were a lot of rocks and broken sea shells that easily stuck to the bottom of our slippers, someone in our group got a cut on their foot just walking on the shoreline. Whil

Overall good hotel for the price. They have 4 restaurants. The French Restaurant: Chez Fontaine is pretty good but you pay just $20 for wine, soup or salad, main entree, dessert. Not bad! All other restaurants are included in the deal. El Pescador is the main buffet restaurant and have a wide variety of choices to meet different palates. It wasn't bad. They had pizza, hamburger, and plenty of salads, fruits, seafood, chicken, pork and stewed beef. You can drink the water so long as you request bottled water at the restaurant- in fact, that is all they serve. The entertainment was ok. Two good sized pool and several bars throughout the location. You'll have to pay about $2 for premium drinks which is not bad compared to US prices. Otherwise you'll get locale brands which aren't bad but just not the same. The one main disappointment for me was the Wi-FI. There is Wi-Fi service and I used it. I paid $10 for a full day access but half the time it didn't work so be wary. I used the Fitness Center but it was dirty and could be upkept. The rooms were elegant and nicely decorated but a bit old..and humid! Yes, there was a bug or two but I saw the problem was the maids. Whenever they came to do the rooms, the room door was left open thus allowing some bugs to crawl in. They were mostly a few ants or a beatle. If you leave a couple of bucks with a simple note (like "More water", "More coffee") near the coffee maker you can request additional bottled water for the room and extra cofee bags. English is an issue so learn some basic spanish. I speak spanish. They don't have a minibar but the water is important for coffee. Don't drink the tap or fawcett water or you'll get sick. Use the bottled water to brush your teeth. The beach I didn't frequent but I've seen better. It was ok. THe hotel is about 18 miles from the airport so plan accordingly. Overall, a good value for the price and I would go back again.

Perhaps I'm spoiled, but this resort leaves a lot to be desired. As the old saying goes, you get what you pay for, so don't expect to be impressed. In no particular order, here are my gripes: Unfriendly, unhelpful staff (except for maybe 1 out of 10 people). Tips are required if you want any real attention. "All-Inclusive" is a misnomer - some restaurant items such as lobster cost 50% of the listed price on the menu. The French restaurant cost $20 per person and was simply horrible. The food was generally bad. I lost 5 lbs during my week there due to everything being VERY unappetizing. I had a case of food poisoning or some other bug, as did 3 others in our group of 6. The buffet had flies everywhere and I saw a cockroach scurrying across a plate I was about to pick up. Don't expect food you recognize to taste anything like you would expect, except for the bacon at breakfast. Beware! The weekdays were quiet, but from Friday through Sunday the resort is overrun by locals with weekend passes. The locals are nice people, but the atmosphere was very "ghetto" and noisy with trash strewn everywhere. We witnessed a father allowing his child to urinate directly into a swimming pool from the edge.

Fabulous location, with ideal amenities (nice pool and beach). Check-in is a nightmare. Juan Dolio is a terrific short getaway from the Santo Domingo area. A little difficult to find, but once you are there the Barcelo Beach Resort is a treat. The beach area and two pools are perfect; the food is good quality for buffet style; and the rooms are spacious.

In short I would not come back to DR or this hotel. The staff was fairly friendly especially once I gave them tips here and there. The check in reservation was lost and there was no manager to check us in so after awhile they required a credit card imprint for us to check in. They didn't take AMEX. Once we got in the rooms were large but musty and the beds/pillows were indeed lumpy. We got two bath towels. Period. No washclothes or hand towels. Repeated calls to the front desk requesting the coffee maker to be repaired did not get it fixed. The food was fair and in large quantities. The bar by the beach had the best by far. The food at restaurant in the middle of the resort was inedible. The beverages were plentiful and strong. Some wait staff were over the top good while others were indifferent to say the least. The last night a pipe broke and we had an inch of water in our room. We were quite ready to leave by then. And of course we both got sick, too.

Many of the reviews we read about this resort had as nervous, but we had a great stay. The hotel was clean and the grounds very well kept. Our check in took less than 5 minutes, the food was ok, I recommend making reservations at the ala carte restaurants on the weekends as the locals come in and you have to wait for a table at the buffet. Also, plan to stay near the beach more on the weekends as there are many locals by the pools on the weekends and it gets loud and crowded. But not enough to ruin your trip. Request a room in the 4000 block as they are newer and right next to the beach. The beach is beautiful, not rocky at all. The vendors do bother you on the beach but just them them no, gracias and they'll leave you alone, although you can get a good deal. Bring lots of small bills for tipping, etc as it's difficult to get change. The staff were very nice and accomodating. If they didn't understand they would find someone who did. All in all it was a great resort and we would definitely go back again.

Overall, nice place to get away. If you can't leave the hotel to go to the city or anyplace else, fine. This is an all inclusive hotel you don't really need money except for souvenirs and fun entertainment daily and nightly. The staff spoke spanish and limited English. The only people who were friendly were security and bellhops and guest services. *At checkin, I added a person to my room and later had problems with, but because there was no record of this person as a guest, there was nothing the hotel could do.....At checkin the hotel should, for everyone's safety, have record of everyone they give all inclusive bands to!

This resort was probably below average. We thought the staff was, for the most part, unfriendly. The rooms were pretty basic, and there was a distinct lack of towels. The rest of my family hated the food. I thought it was interesting, however the meat was usually overcooked. The drinks were horrible. I have never even heard of the brands of liquor that they had. Not a decent quality at all. The beach was beautiful, weather was perfect, coffee was really good, and the grounds were well maintained. We probably will not do an all inclusive next time. Would rather spend the money on better service and quality of food and drinks, not just quantity.

I was in the Dominican Republic on business and finished early and had a few days to kill. In spite of some of the negative comments I read here I booked a room through the travel website. After waiting in line for 45 minutes to check in I was told they had no record of a reservation and was asked to wait a few minutes. An hour later they still had no record but one of the clerks was kind enough to go another office to look. After another 15 - 20 minutes the clerk returned and said that there would not be a room for me that night. I understand how 'island time' works and don't get in much of a hurry when in the Caribbean but waiting two hours to try and check in is past the bounds of good taste. I called the travel agency who put me on hold and called the motel. In short order the travel agency rep came back on line and said no one at the front desk spoke English and they had hung up on her. That was the same front desk I had just watched for two hours helping customers both in Spanish and English. I can't understand why the travel agency would rep a concern who treats them and the customer in such a poor manner. Finally the travel agency was kind enough to get me into a Quality Inn but there was only vacancy for one night. As fate would have it I was in Juan Dolio a couple of days later and was speaking to one of the locals I had met while waiting. He informed me that there was no food service available at the property that day. If you enjoy being disrespected and lied to then this place is for you.

"This resort is beautiful. I don't know why other travellers say that the beach is rocky. It is NOT!!! The food at the 2 buffet restaurants is ok, but the Beach Grill and the French Restaurant are outstanding. It's worth the extra $20 for the French Restaurant. Unless you're under 20 don't even try to go to the disco, it's packed with teenagers and there's nothing else to do. Not recommended for singles. Book the trip to Saona Island! Best part of our trip!!!"

The staff bearly spoke any english. The only staff who spoke english was the check in staff. The staff was really nice even though they didn't speak english. The food wasn't all that great either. I highly recommend the grill on the beach, the food was to die for. The hotel was in a beautiful location and my room was beautiful. If I was to go to Dominican Republic again I would go to Punta Cana instead.

Great location on a nice beach. food wasn't too bad. one of the restaurants you have to pay for, $20 per person. that was never stated until we arrived. not too many of the staff speak very much english, so if you don't speak spanish they are not always friendly or helpful. overall it was a good trip and we would go back. take the tour to saona island, or as they call it, party island. its awesome!

I was skeptical, because of the mixed reviews, but since this was a last minute trip, I had no other options. What a pleasant surprise when we arrived at the hotel! Service @ reception was a little slow but employees were very friendly and helped us move to a different room when I said I was not satisfied with the original I was assigned. My kids had a great time and I felt confortable letting them roam the property on their own, as the hotel has security guards everywhere and there's also police @ beach. We left several items @ restaurant or by the pool and were able to retrieve them @ security desk. Food ok, not excellent, but you have a lots of options as the buffett offers many choices. Grounds and beach were impecable, and personnel was extremely nice, friendly and helpful We loved X our scuba instructor, X who arranged our tours (he's by the beach) and X who entertained us every night and is an excellent dancer ... thanks to everybody, you made of ours a very memorable vacation. You must come with realistic expectations and enjoy your stay, look for the positive and you will have a great time!

Took my parents on their first Dominican vacation and they loved-it. My kids and I stayed at this hotel 3 times before and would stay again any time.

Reception people are difficult, the internet is like a dial up speed and the supervisors of the personal are very rude! The best food is in the Bohio Dominicano. The employees are friendly. I never have to wait for a drink. The best service is in the carambola bar in the pool, where Alexis, the bar tender do a great job all the days for all the people there. We meet a few people there from different parts. I hope to go there soon.
