Barceló Bávaro Palace Deluxe
Barceló Bávaro Palace Deluxe, which reopened in December 2010 after a top-to-bottom renovation, is set on the picture-perfect Bávaro Beach, where two miles of soft white sand meet the calm turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. Aside from the stellar location, this mega-resort offers endless activities and a variety of dining options, including a tapas bar, steak house, and sushi restaurant. The new Las Vegas–inspired Club House has a 24-hour casino and a spa with a private outdoor pool. Amenities in the updated suites include pillow-top mattresses, 32-inch LCD TVs, and private terraces with Jacuzzis. For personalized service, book a Club Premium suite, which provides access to an exclusive concierge and priority reservations at the property’s à la carte restaurants.
