Best Vacation!

I stayed at Iberostar Bavaro with an all-inclusive plan with my 2 friends for a week. The resort was absolutely beautiful. The staff was so friendly and funny that staying in the resort was such a great time on its own! Even after dining one night at a resort restaurant, our waiter remembered our names days later. The food and drinks were great. No complaints at all. The resort activities especially by the pool area were also fun. My friends and I ended up going on an excursion outside and rode on ATVs. This excursion was definitely worth the money. It was so much fun, and we really got to see other parts of DR. All in all, my friends and I agree that this was the best vacation we ever took to date. And the staff and service at Iberostar was a major part of it.

Have to make reservations to eat at the restaurants in the hotel, and there isn't much availability so you have to book right away or before you get there

Couples Getaway

My girlfriend and I arrived at the resort at 9:50pm and the staff quickly got us checked in and to our room which I had requested via email to be close to the ocean and pool. They nailed it. Food was good and the buffets had everything. The specialty restaurants were good. The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to help. Beach is beautiful as well as the Ocean.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Don't do the Adventure Buggy. Horrible time, Basically driving in a line seeing a beach, coffee house and cave. Harassed by locals. Got a photo CD because they took some great beach pictures and it was not even us. Waste of Money. Also the Saona Island Trip. Long travel day, food is horrible and your are harassed by locals even more. You get only 1.5-2 hours on the beach there. The rest is travel time and stops. No fun.

Excellent Value

Our experience as a family of four was very good. The staff was very friendly although I was somewhat surprised at how few of the staff knew any functional English. While I wouldn't expect the staff to know much English, even the bartenders had a hard time taking orders. The food was excellent and the service was excellent. We will go back and it was an excellent value!

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.

Iberostar Family of hotels

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.

Dominican Republic vacay

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.
