Iberostar Grand Hotel Bavaro Adults Only - All inclusive

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Drinks are not top shelf and the pool is very boring as far as activities with little music. If you want to be very quiet, it's just for you. Food was decent, service staff is very friendly but most do not speak English.

Inside hotel staff are useless, I asked 4 different employees for a case of water sent to my room because o dehydrated easily, about 5x , didn't receive the water so I wound up getting dehydrated and couldn't get out of bed for a day and a half, outside staff were very friendly and nice

Wonderful vacation in Paradise! Staff was attentive and most friendly; food was fabulous. Our room had a nice ocean view and was very clean. The landscaping was beautiful. Would definitely go back to this five star property!

White sand, clear blue water, friendly and attentive staff. Clean manicured gardens, good food. A great vacation!!

Perfect for a quiet, relaxing beach weekend. Food options were OK, I preferred the buffets and room service to the restaurants, though we were only able to get into the Mediterranean and Japanese restaurants, so I can't speak for the others.

The best restaurant was the surf and Turf. The people were eager to please. All day luxury. If you are not looking for a time of relaxation, this is not the place for you.

I took my mom for her 60th. We had an amazing experience. The staff was truly amazing and made the trip a memorable experience. The buffet was truly awesome. We didn't know there were shops on the beach until day 4 as we did back to back activities. The hotel will take you wherever you want to go.

Everything was great and as advertised but have two complaints: 1. Only available times for dinner were at 9 pm for all of the restaurants. If you want an earlier time you have to do it online before arriving. I feel this takes away from the spontaneity of a relaxing vacation. 2. Reserving lounges and chairs at pool area should not be allowed. People get up at the crack of dawn and have the pool servants reserve chairs with a towel for the entire day if you go to those chairs or not. This is a big waste of space. If you are using the chairs and have personal items on the chairs then the chair is taken. If you are not at the chairs and there are no personal items then the chair is free. It is that simple. Otherwise there are a lot of chairs in prime locations that no one is using. I don't know if this is allowed only at this hotel or at all but this rule is inefficient. I prefer the method used on cruise ships. If you are away from your chair for more than a certain amount of time you give up the right to your chair. It is only fair to everyone else. I'm on vacation and do not need to wake up at 6 or 7 am just to reserve a chair. I'll stay at work if I want to get up that early. Otherwise, the service and staff were truly 5 stars.

Very enjoyable vacation. Staff was great. Shakira,Almando, DeDe, Nyara and Isabel. And our 2 butlers,Edger And Bum Bum were just super. Our friends that were with us will concur. My wife and I have stayed at two other Iberostar all Adult Hotels in Jamaica and Rivera Maya and they also were great. Each Iberostar Hotel has its on uneakness about them. We will come back to Punta Cana next year and stay at this Hotel with more of our friends, and book our vacation with Orbitz.

Had a wonderful trip from start to finish! The staff was excellent. Will be going back very soon!!

Quiet and relaxing with plenty of space around the pools and the beach. Good food and plenty of it.

Best hotel I've ever stayed at staff was incredible never been treated so well

Resort was above all expectations. The service we received was amazing and on an above and beyond level. I would definitely stay at this resort again. Butler service was amazing, food was great, drinks were great, and activities were so much fun.

Your transport agent from airport to hotel and vice versa is always 1 hour late or never shows up, he think he is on vacation and we have to meet when he wants and ends up not showing up at all (Mr Lenord) is a disappointment.

There was a noticeable damp, mildew type odor in the room the moment we walked into it, and believed it came from the A.C. ducts not being properly cleaned in such a humid environment. We tested that idea by shutting the A.C. and leaving the window open for several hours. When we came back to the room the order was for the most part, gone. We tried that several times and had the same results. They need to have a maintenance program to clean the AC duct work. The grounds are beautiful and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. Be sure to go there at least once. If they clean the ducts, go twice

Great staff and a wonderful beach make for a near-perfect vacation.

Our 4th visit. Have your $10 bill ready for immigration at the airport, then tip a porter to collect your bags from the carousel and take you straight thru to your car to the hotel, and let the fun begin! Do not waste time on a group shuttle! Arrange private transportation at a separate travel site if need be. Take a cab back to the airport for $40 after the vacation. Avoid the Club spiel, it's code for timeshare. Your butler is more of an expiditer, and you will have to ask for what you want, everyday. We have a bottle of wine and champagne on ice in the room everyday, along with a large glass of Baileys and the stocked minibar. Have him arrange your specialty dinner reservations as soon as you check in. Everyone at the resort is there to make you happy. You just have to ask. Get breakfast in bed everyday. They do have a wine list of both free and fee wines available by the bottle. There is a nice French Blanc de Blanc for free and the Spanish rioja whites are very good too. Lay under a palapa at the beach or in a cabana by the pool all day. Get steak and lobster at the buffet. Take in the evening show. As they like to say, It's all inclusive.

This is our third stay at iberostar grand . It's the best place to stay!!!! As I mentioned before wifi is needed all through out the hotel, and better connection in the room. I would come back to this hotel over and over and over again.

only problem only drink bottled water,otherwise great place

We loved our stay at the Iberostar Bavaro All Inclusive Resort! The staff was very helpful and accommodating. They were always smiling and having a good time. We speak some Spanish, so that helped, but was not necessary. I'm a very picky eater, but thought the food was great! The buffet is really all you need! We did a reservation for one of our nights, but preferred the buffet over the restaurant. The cleaning staff was always excellent! Our room was spotless every day! We even got beautiful flowers from the staff when they found out it was our honeymoon. The resort itself brought us fresh fruit and a bottle of wine to celebrate. There is plenty of water and other beverages available in the room that is restocked daily for no added cost. Be sure not to use the water to brush your teeth or to drink. We did not have any issues with the water or feeling ill. We would definitely return! Loved every minute of the resort. Sidenote: If you go off the resort to the shops along the beach near the resort, be cautious. Like other Caribbean islands, some of the vendors are very pushy and want you to buy something from them. We did not have the best experience at the shops.
