Greatest Most Attentive Service

We never had more attentive, professional, friendly service. Every staff member went out of their way to do anything they could to fullfill our needs. The assigned butlers were awesome. Everyone had a smile and seemed to truly enjoy working at the hotel. The food was great, even the buffets. The four ala carte restaurants were top notch and as good as the better restaurants in most cities in the world. The adults-only aspect of the resort was perfect for us. The other guests were refined. If one is looking for a loud, wild partying atmosphere, the Grand Bavaro is not the place to go. The shows don't start until 10 PM, and the disco (in another Iberostar resort) starts at 11:30 PM, so we never went to either.

Bring your own reading materials. You won't find much in the way of books or magazines to buy. Local shopping is very limited, and the local town is not exactly a shopping mecca.

Exceeded expectations for a couple

The facility was amazing, grounds well manicured, incredible food, service, etc! Can't say enough. Be sure to book your dinner reservations as soon as you arrive. Also for a room get the interior left side up at floor 3 or 4 towards the end, we had the best view of everything that way. Brushing up on your Spanish is helpful! We never left the resort!

Fantastic Birthday Celebration to be remembered

Excellent property, great beach, excellent staff,great food, great atmosphere, awesome room service, whatever it is you want just ask. Never a wait to eat, or to receive drinks. Taxi ride from airport 35.00 to the door. No complaints, a world traveller but never received service like this before.

A Welcome Paradise

Could not ask for a better vacation at the Iberostar Grand Bavaro resort & spa!! The grounds are gorgeous and our room was the perfect size for two friends looking for rest and relaxation. The staff was incredibly friendly and welcoming particularly our butler, Charlie, who couldn't have been more warm and attentive to our needs. He always asked how we were doing and what he could do to make our stay more pleasurable. The pool and beach areas were so clean and soothing - found spots under the cabanas or the thatched umbrellas on the sand everyday. Drink the pina coladas - so delicious! The food and restaurant situation was our only minor complaint as often found having visited during low season that not every restaurant was open on the property and we often found ourselves limited to meal options. The Italian restaurant though on the grounds was delicious - especially the pear granita dessert (YUM). I did eat the fruits and vegetables each day and did not once get sick. Overall, I am so glad we visited the Grand Bavaro and came back with many positive memories!

great as always

Great relaxing vacation. Rooms spacious, people friendly (international crowd), service wonderful. Food was much better than typical DR fare. Not croweded at all at pool and beach. Christmas lights were very nice. IB grand is a place to hang out at night if you want a quiet, laidback evening. If you are in a more party/festive mood, head over to IB Bavaro at night as the bar and stage are very close lots of people go there to enjoy the evening.

Excellent place

had a great time! take a taxi from the airport, only $38. book all your meals at the restaurant the first night. wake up early to save a cabana (all the old people wake up super early to get them by throwing a towel on them and not coming back for 6 hours). Overall fantastic resort, just some annoyances like the deck chairs. The staff is amazing, very nice. Food is excellent!

Wake up at 5am to save a deck chair - all the old people do it at 6am so you can get one in advance!
