Great All-Inclusive on a budget

My fiance and I went for a friend's wedding. It was a 4 day party and the all inclusiveness of it just made it perfect. The staff was exceptional and extremly nice. I would definitely go back but for longer!

Week off work

My first experience with an all inclusive hotel. Was very surprised. Staff at the front desk went an extra mile to accommodate my room s request. The premises as the room are really clean, the food served all day long was average standard. Will do it again.

Iberostar Bavaro

This resort is very tropical with lush, green, immaculately landscaped surroundings on the best area of Bavaro Beach!! All areas are very, very clean and well maintained, with pride by all of the hard working employees. My reason for giving 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the food. If you are a picky eater with basic American "taste buds" food may be a disappointment to you. Also, the entertainment is somewhat "cheesy". But considering your reasons for traveling to the Caribbean should be for the beach...the Iberostar Bavaro can't be beat!!

Almost perfect!

Positives - Good rooms, large pool, nice beach area, above average food, beautiful grounds, lots of different activities to do, nice nightlife entertainment, nice gym, and since there are 3 Iberostar complexes all walking distance, you can visit the other hotels, their casino and nightclub, if the weather is nice this is a beautiful romantic or a family getaway. Negatives - Too many kids although not really bothersome, some staff were kind of unfriendly especially the bartenders and many did not speak english at all, some bungalows were surrounded by smelly swamps after rain. Overall - The positives far outweigh the negatives, I have never gone back to same place twice so far but would consider coming back here. Oh and the restaurants on the grounds are really so so.

Great value

The staff is so friendly. As soon as you arrive, they bring a cocktail from the bar. We had sent an email prior to our arrival, requesting 2 rooms in the same building which was accomodated. The rooms are very spacious and the beds are very comfortable. The pillows weren't the most comfortable, but otherwise, everything was fine. The resort is very clean and the food was good. The restaurants are a good way to break up the consistant taste of the buffets. We found by leaving a couple dollars with the waiters/bartenders was very much appreciated. Overall, I would definitely return to this resort.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

A short walk down the beach are numerous vendor huts where you can get great deals on t-shirts, art work and other souvenirs. You should be able to bargain down the price to close to 50% off.

Nice place!

Beautiful location and hotel. Lots of families and children. Beach bar and staff there are great!!!! Not a big fan of the reservation plan for dinners. Resort is huge, lots of walking to get from place to place. Nice place overall but I will stay somewhere else next time just to experience variety. It did not win me over to point where I would not stay anywhere else.

Enjoyed the Bravaro but decided to upgrade to the Grand after seeing it. The Grand was newer (less than 2 years) and simply amazing. Nothing was wrong with the Bravaro but the Grand was just that much better.

The hotel was amazing and the food was first class. It was a rather larger hotel and the beach was clean. For the price, you couldn't beat it! I would recommend eating at the buffet most of the time (especially when they have lobster) but the Gourmet restaurant was great as well. Skip the Japanese. Not good.
