... are really bad quality and not worth what you are paying in terms of what you are getting. I didn't listen, I decided to buy things from there. It was pretty cheap, I didn't spend more than 20 things for 5 items. Some items seems more expensive then I though but it was worth it. It was close and it was alright.
Our dinner ...
... Toronto to Punta Cana. So the pilots had to wait for a plane to arrive in Toronto. So they could fly the plane to come pick us up in Punta Cana.
OMG! So much work for one flight. So our flight was actually a whole day, if you calculate all the time that we spent at the airport and waiting for the plane. So it was about 7 AM when we arrived in Toronto on Sunday.
Sigh! The longest ride every. It felt longer than when I flew to Hong Kong. LOL!
... lion show that I keep calling, seals. LOL! oppzz.
But the rest of the day, I was just chilling with my friends by the beach and doing some of the free activities.
By night fall we had another "special dinner," it was the Mediterranean dinner. It was alright. It had seafood and pasta. Nothing really special.
Today is the outback trip. So our hotel is the last to be picked up for almost all the trips, so we could sleep in and not have to worry about missing our trip. Therefore, we are the last ones to be dropped off at the end of the day.
This outback trip is a whole day trip, I know whole day. It must be boring however, we did a lot of driving and a lot of looking. The trip includes alcohol of course, without alcohol how could we function. LOL! In addition, it also includes an ...
... separated from the Haitians. If your down to earth and love to learn about culture. I would suggest you try it out. The Dolphin explorer was something that I always wanted to do, I always wanted to swim with dolphins. Now I got that chance, if your an animal lover I suggest you do not take this trip. You might not like what you see. However, for how much you pay it isn't that bad. Expect to pay about $200 bucks for the trip ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Palladium Bavaro Resort & Spa Punta Cana
My husband & I spent last week at Fiesta Bavaro-It is a beautiful resort, very large, lots of walking-Front desk staff is not too nice. The food service folks have been trained very well and serve you with perfection! The pool and beach are great. It is a little difficult understanding the a la carte restaurant rules- mainly being few people speak english. For the price we paid, we did receive good value and would return - after I brush up on my spanish!
Overall a wonderful stay!
My girlfriend and I went to Fiesta Bavaro from February 17-21, 2003. We overall were extremely impressed with the resort. Generally, it was very clean, well kept, with beautiful grounds. The staff was friendly, helpful, and efficient. The beach was long, white, and beautiful, with great palm trees. The pools were clean and the perfect temperature. The food was probably the only darkish spot - not that it was terrible, but it generally wasn't all that great, either. There WAS a great deal of variety, so we could always find something to eat, at least.Overall, we had a great trip, and would be delighted to go back again.
What a way to relax
This was a very pleasant surprise. My wife and 16 year old son and 11 year old daughter all had a blast. we usually do club med vacations but this was 1/2 the price so we tried it. the facility is beautiful. the beach is amazing. the rooms were large and well appointed with good A/C. the grounds were magnificant and well maintained. the staff was attentive and very friendly. the pools were nice and the food was typical of all inclusives decent quality and plenty of it. after 7 days you are ready for some different food. the weather was 85 and sunny. plenty of activities. the basketball courts were in disrepair and should be upgraded. the staff appreciates when you try and speak spanish. mostly europeans and maybe 30% american. I highly recommend this hotel for families.
Best vacation ever
We booked our trip through apple vacations and stayed at Feista Bavaro it was great, more than we could have expected, except for the delays at the airports, about 2 hrs each way. The apple people were at the hotel everyday to help with any questions you might have, everybody at the hotel was freindly and very helpfull. If you have never been there take the Saffari trip into the mountains, we had a blast. All inclusive is the way to go. Chuck & Denise
Hola: I just spent the week at the Fiesta Bavaro Beach resort with my fiance and we had a great time. I thought the beach and water were beautiful, very clean, well kept. The service at the beach bar was great, I wish they had some other beer other than Presidente, but I still enjoyed plenty of them. The rooms are adequate for a vacation bungalow. My only complaint is that the water pressure is not great, but it did the job. The cleaning service was great, she refilled my minibar everyday except one. They are only supposed to refill it every other day but with a few American dollars, I did six out of seven-->not bad. As far as the food, It was very good, well presented, and the variety was great. As on all vacations I have been on, I was tired of the cuisine at the end of the week, but you would find that anywhere in an all-inclusive scenario. The nightly entertainment was amusing, different every night, and brief(I like that). The disco served as a nice way to end the night. The music was good but I have had enough merengue for a lifetime. We went on two excursions, the outback safari and the aquatic tour with the speed boats. Both were great, we had a great time and they were both worth every penny. Don't spend all of your time at the resort, we had a great time out of the resort. Overall, we had a great time, I am not sure if we would go back. The resort was great but in the Dominican, there is little to do if you want to do anything except lay on the beach. we took our trip to lay on the beach and get away from the winter weather, in that respect, it was perfect. I am still enjoying my tan. By the way, if you are a Europhobe, you should not come here, it is mostly european, you will not hear English much here. Adios
My wife took me away as a surprise for my birthday. Therefore I didn't know where we were going until I got to the airport. Neither of us had ever done an all inclusive resort before ,and we were somewhat leery as we tend to like to explore when we go away. The Fiesta Bavaro was far better than I expected. We were there from Jan.9-24 and had a great time. The food was excellent, we enjoyed El Arrecife restaurant the best. Great drinks are always available. I suggest a coco loco vitamina. The rooms were clean and nice. Very friendly staff. The entertainment staff were over and above the call of duty, they were great. It was very nice to get away from Americanized areas. There's no Planet Hollywood here. We did a tour ,and took a local bus to the major town of Higuey. You could probably miss Higuey, but the Bavaro Runners tour is great. Down side would be that being mostly europeans on holiday smoking is alive and well. Overall a great place and I would definitely reccomend Fiesta Bavaro to any one.
It was terrible. At the recception they where very very very unfriendly.
My wife and I travelled to Punta Cana from Dec. 26/02 - Jan. 9/03 along with three other family members. We all booked into with the Fiesta Roulette, which means that you do not know which of the three resorts(Palace, Bavaro or Beach) you will stay at until you arrive.
Going Back for the 4th year!
We leave for our 4th trip to Punta Cana and our 2nd stay at Fiesta Bravaro. We must like it or we would not be going back. The first 2 years we stayed at the Punta Cana Beach Resort and it was also very nice but the fact that you have 3 resorts in one when staying at the Fiesta Bravaro is real nice. All the staff members seem very friendly and helpful. Very relaxing and very very beautiful. Can't wait to leave next Friday!!
My girlfriend and I stayed at the Fiesta Bavaro for a week in August. It was GREAT! The resort is huge, 3 resorts actually, and you can use the facilities and restaurants at all 3 - so there's about 10 restaurants to choose from. I liked it because there weren't many complaining Americans. Mosty European. I am American, but hate whiney Americans who expect everything to be in English. If you can't speak some Spanish...you have NO business going to the DR. Otherwise, enjoy the best beaches in the world, surprisingly GREAT food, lots of cocktails and Presidente beer, great excursions to choose from, etc. We are going back this year, and plan to partake in more excursions. This resort is great. A bit too many children for my liking, but otherwise lots of fun. Met lots of new friends from Europe, great drinking buddies.
