Good For The Price

Would recommend Sun, Oct 10, 2010
The Hotel was fine. Our Repersentative was only around twice when we tried to contact him for tours. The day we arrived he was there for about 10 minutes,and the day before we left we found him at the front door, and he only confirmed our transfer back to the Airport. He had stated we needed to book thru him for tours, etc. but he was never available. Be very aware of lost luggage as our luggage was lost going down and coming home. Had to stay in our room for nearly 24 hrs. waiting for our luggage. A day we paid for and was not able to use!!!!Also had to pay $10.00 for entrance fee at the Airport to get thru customs, which was never conveyed before hand.

Shopping hint

The prices of the Taxies are expensive. The new shopping plaza is expensive if you are looking for trinkets to take home. This is an expensive upscale mall.

Awesome hotel and great hospitality

Would recommend Fri, Aug 20, 2010
The resort was for me a 5 star. We checked in fast and checked out even faster. No wait. It had beautiful landscaping and they also had flamingos and peacocks on their property. The resort has three pools. The main pool is for the entire family. It's loud because all the kids hang out there and it's where they have music. but, our favorite was the pool with the huge bar above the pool. It's quite and relaxing. There is no music at this pool. It's more for adults. The third pool is quite as well. The resort also has a beautiful hang out with comfty cushioned chairs if you want to drink cofee and read. Everywhere you go they have bars and lots of liquor. The food is simply awesome. They have buffet type at the main restaurant, pizza at the main pool (great tasting pizza, and they have another huge bar at the beach and a buffet with hamburgers, hotdogs and much more. Expect to gain 10 lbs at leat. The resort is huge. One side they have villas(they look like small homes) and the other side they have hotel type buildings. They upgraded us from the villas to the hotel one day and we went back to the villas because that side of the resort was dark and not much going on execpt the rooms are beautiful but, we loved the small villas. Plus, they have a train that you hop on and takes you anywhere within the resort you want to go. Train runs 24/7 but, at night it only runs on the villas side not the hotel side. They have a disco as well. The only bad thing is that the first three night we had no cable signal. No big deal. The air conditioning in the rooms is cold and comfty. Their are no irons in the rooms. The bathrooms in the entire resort are beautiful spa like. The staff was awesome. Supper friendly and they'll do anything to make you feel like royalty. Overall, I rate this resort a five star. It's awesome.

Attractions

They have all kinds of fun stuff to do at the beach. It's not free, but you can rent small boats that goes fast for two people, wind surfing, sailboats, snorkling or go on a big boat and listen to merengue music. They also have paddle boats. I didn't see any kayaking.

A NEEDED GETAWAY

Would not recommend Fri, Jul 30, 2010
OUR EXPERIENCE AT THE IFA VILLAS BRAVO RESORT & SPA WAS A NICE VACATION. WE DID HAVE A FEW PROBLEMS. THE CHECK OUT SERVICE WAS QUICK, HOWEVER, SECURITY CHECKS YOUR ROOM WHEN YOU CHECK OUT. THE MAID SERVICE DID NOT PUT FACE TOWELS IN OUR ROOM THREE TIMES DURING OUR STAY, TWICE WE LOCATED THE LADY IN THE BUILDING AND ASK FOR THEM, ON THE THIRD MISHAP, WE RETURNED TO OUR ROOM VERY LATE FROM AN EXCURSION TO CATALINA ISLAND AND MY HUSBAND WAS SICK. SINCE WE WERE LEAVING IN THE MORNING,WE DID NOT REQUEST FOR THE TOWELS. BIG MISTAKE, THE FRONT DESK AND SECURITY ACCUSED US OF STEALING THEM AND WANTED $40.00 FOR REPLACEMENT. THIS ENRAGED MY HUSBAND TO NO END, MY HUSBAND REFUSED TO PAY FOR THE HOUSEKEEPING MISTAKE, SECURTIY HAD TO SEARCH OUR LUGGAGE. WHEN THEY WERE FINISHED INFORMED US WE COULD LEAVE AND STATED WE SHOULD HAVE CALLED FOR THE MISSING TOWELS. THE RESORT WAS NICE AND CLEAN. I CAN NOT SAY I WILL NEVER VIST THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC/PUNTA CANA AGAIN, BUT WILL NOT RETURN TO IFA VILLA BRAVO RESORT AND SPA. THE RESORT NEEDS TO INPROVE THE BEDDING (MATTRESS)WAS TERRIBLE.

Shopping hint

THE GIFT SHOPS DID NOT HAVE TO MANY ITEMS TO SELECT FROM-CHOICES WERE LIMITED.

The good, the bad and the really ugly

Would not recommend Wed, Jul 28, 2010
We were staying from the 22 thru the 27 and we checked out the 25th before 12:00 and moved to other hotel. Too much noise in the rooms areas after 9:00pm, loud music around the pool, poor towel services in the bedroom and in the spa. The personnel at the reception is not customer service oriented. The rooms are not very clean. I also have to say that the Spa services are good and the personnel is very nice and attentive. The restaurant services and the food are good.

good hotel for the price

Would recommend Mon, Jul 26, 2010
I was there for work. It is just "location convenient" for me. This was my second time in the hotel. I have the advantage of speaking the language (Spanish). This was my ninth trip to the island so I kind of know the "tricks of the trade" with the locals. I like the villas very much with the fountain, the flamingos, roosters, geese,etc. A long walk to the beach tough... Something new this year: you will not be able to borrow an iron as in the past :) Overall, I would recommend this hotel. I will ,most likely, have to stay there again in the near future.
