Dear Maria,

Our vacation last week was phenomenal!  We  experienced first class service from the staff at Barcelo Bavaro Palace Resort.  We would like to express our gratitude and appreciation for the trip we took of a lifetime which was flawless, thanks to your hard work. It's better than a cruise! The food is extremely healthy and delicious! The environment helped with my medical health issues by 95%.  I highly recommend Punta Cana as the best place to enjoy life and have plenty of relaxation and fun.  It's our adult Disneyland and we plan to definitely make plans to return next year with more family members.
I'd like to thank the staff of Barcelo Bavaro Palace for the extraordinary and professional service beginning with Jean Carlos Parra, the daily security guard who assisted in getting us our "tour bus", Altagracia Pena, who worked so hard to make us feel welcomed in the Strykers Sport Bar. We felt like royalty.  Our beloved domestic goddess (room service), Orphelina who made sure our room was clean and the minibar filled with our favorite drinks.  The "maleteros" baggage kings at the hotel were simply the best!
There is really nothing to complain at all about this trip!  Being bilingual is definitely a plus that's for sure but the staff understands the English and Russian languages.  There are many Russians, Europeans, Brazilians etc., but not too many Texans.  So I challenge the Texas folks to make a trip out there--it will be the best vacation you'll ever experience.  I'm ready for another catamaran ride to Saona Island...aaaahhhh

Best regards,
The Happy Texas Gals
Alice, Monica & Edna
