Stunning beaches. We obviously had read how the beaches are and in real life they are so much better. Even photos don’t do the turquoise sea and sky any justice. It has to be seen to be believed and of course remembered. This is one of those situations where you need to quietly be and take it all in. We did, it was very special.
Go if you can.

Beautiful beach - its absolutely stunning!

Just so gutted that those disgusting, tiny dolphin enclosures are allowed in the sea 😔 sourced from seaworld too according to our hotel!

White sand, blue water, aquarelle skies, great drinks, wonderful food. The serenity of the scenery will perdure in your memories.

The beach was definately sub-average in the area of the Royalton Bavaro hotel. Small beach front - lots of seaweed. I know there are better areas in Punta Cana - so take it with a grain of salt. But during that time in that exact area....poor.

We were at Iberostar Bavaro in August. The water was in brown color due to the huge amount of sargasm. Some people were still in the water since it was a natural phenomena and water is not dirty. The beach at our resort was cleaned by tractor everyday. The beach itself is wide and clean and beautiful.

Though this beach is not very wide the swimming is great. There is a lot of wave action and soft sand. There are also many shells to find. Especially early in the morning.

The beach itself was beautiful! The water was a great temperature and it was clean. We loved it for the short time we were there. But the vendors were aggressive and because of it, we limited our time there. They were consistently bombarding you when all we wanted was to relax.

We were expecting one of the most amazing beach holidays ever, when we decided for the Carribean Punta Cana Grand Bavaro Princess Hotel. We spent almost 10k Euro to make the dream come true.
When we arrived we saw it was almost impossible to swim in the Ocean because of thousands of tons of sea weed in the water and at the beach. We were told its a well known problem in the duration from July til November. The reality was: nobody was swimming in the Ocean; the pools were overcrowded and the water quality there was almost criminal. We are thinking to sue our travel agency for not informing us about this serious quality problem.

Beaches were beautiful but water was rough. When you go to Punta Cana you just don't want to leave the white sand beaches, the servers by the beach and the great food.
