Family friendly hotel

Pros: I like the seating areas in the gardens. I like the birds (flamingos, peacock, crane) they keep at the property. They attract kids.
Cons: The quality of food could be improved.
Location: The hotel is far from the city. There are no nearby restaurants or shopping centers.
The property is huge and far from the city. There are no nearby restaurants or shopping centers. My family booked a junior suite for 6 nights. It has a balcony overlooking a garden. It is clean & nice, but the beds are not so comfortable. The room has a safe. The hotel has lots of amenities and lots of places to hang out. I specially love seating areas in the garden where you can read a book or just have some quiet time. There are places for kids to hang out as well (i.e. computer corner, game room). Depending on where your room is and where you are going, there could be a lot of walking for you coz of the size of the property. Although, they have golf carts that can give a ride if you request it. The beach is clean. However, the water is not so calm. It was breezy, windy when we went so the waves are sometimes big. The food is ok. Nothing really stood out. We tried the Japanese, Mediterranean, Italian and Steak restaurants. We did not have problems in booking our dinners at these restaurants. The staff/crew are very nice, polite & friendly. We had a problem with the TV and they were able to fix it. We had requests for diet drinks, extra blankets, extra towels and they were delivered to our room promptly. My one complaint is that the ice machine are so far from the room (you have to travel to Alaska to get it). We had a great time. Service is very good. This hotel is highly recommended.

Great place for a relaxing and fun week!

Pros: Staff was so friendly and helpful. Beach is beautiful. Resort has so much to do and food is great!
Location: Great golf course and spa!
We went to Iberostar for our honeymoon and had an amazing experience. Our room was huge and the meals were great. The shows are something fun to do at night and we definitely used the swim up bar to soak up some sun and some margaritas. Great experience!

Good for the price

Loved the experience of the actual hotel, didnt appreciate the people pushing too much on the time share and calling us 5-6 times a day wake us up, and going to our room was kind of annoying besides that everything else was good food was good and service was good little slow but good

Nice all inclusive hotels, good room and food

Pros: Spacious Villa Rooms, close to restaurants
Cons: none noted.
Location: Since this was our third trip to the Dominican Republic we did not do any tours, ..did them last trips. Just relaxed on beach and by pool.
Missed one of stay as American Airlines delayed in Harrisburg and Phila. Was supposed to arrive in Dominican Republic on Monday 11/13. Was rerouted to Miami and had to stay overnight at my expense. Left Miami on Tuesday 11/14 and arrived that day. NO LUGGAGE, American Airlines lost luggage. Found it was still in Miami. Luggage arrived on Wednesday 11/15. Spoke to Travelocity representative on phone who stated she would attempt to get on day refund for missed day. Stated she would e-mail me her findings. STILL AWAITING THE EMAIL. Never heard back from Travelocity. Had to buy some clothing at my expense for first day there, TUE-WED, as neither myself of my wife had any clothing.

Beautiful facility but lazy unhappy staff

My husband and I spent our second anniversary here. Our room was beautiful but our last full day there they forgot to clean our room or stock the mini bar. Very disappointed in the seafoood and Cajun food. They were downright awful.

Nice all-inclusive resort with beautiful beaches.

Pros: Clean rooms, nice variety of food, beautiful beaches and vendors nearby on the beach.
Cons: Update the rooms, allow menus for specialty restaurants in the rooms/on the smart TV, have less interactive shows, more music and pool entertainment.
Location: Beautiful beaches, diving and snorkeling available at the resort, beach vendors in their shacks only a short walk away.
This was our first trip to the Iberostar Bavaro resort. Access is also given to 2 other hotels (Iberostar Dominicana and Iberostar Punta Cana), which was nice but also split the amenities amongst three different locations to make for extra traveling on foot (for example, one hotel had a popcorn machine, while the other had a bigger pool). Hotel rooms were nice (slightly outdated) but very comfortable and always kept clean by the staff. I was slightly disappointed with the entertainment, especially by the pool (which may have been weather-permitting, as it rained for 1 to 2 days on our trip). However, barely any music playing by the pool all day besides during Zumba or water aerobics, and also had no water activities (such as group volleyball in the pool or on the beach) that were setup by the entertainment team. In addition, the shows were fun at night, but ALL of them were interactive with the audience. It would be nice to be able to sit and enjoy a show without the stress of being pulled up on stage for at least one night. Food was delicious, but the speciality restaurants (like Italian and Japanese) required reservation. The reservation could only be made near the front desk, and menus were only available to review on the Iberostar app. It would have been nice to have menus in the room/on the smart TV to view, as well as the ability to make reservations via mobile apps and not just in the lobby. Overall a good time but would probably book elsewhere next time.

Family Friendly Resort, Great Vacation

Pros: Beautiful beach, nice pool, plenty of loungers available no matter when we got to either place. No need to "set up" early to get a comfy spot.
Cons: Food quality was good, not great. Japanese restaurant was our favorite. Breakfast/lunch buffets were basically the same choices every day.
Location: Easy access from airport. The beach on property was so nice we felt no need to leave. Looked like plenty of off site tour options if interested.
Iberostar Bavaro Suites was a perfect choice for a family vacation where we all needed to relax and de-stress. Our suites (Superior Jr. Suites) were ideally located, easy access to pool, beach, bars and restaurants. Overall experience was great, not much thinking involved in spending a week on a gorgeous beach with everything included. This was our first trip booked with Travelocity and everything ran smoothly - flights, transfers, hotel reservations were all as described and promised. A shout out to Melvin, on site concierge provided by Travelocity. He gave us lots of helpful info and reassurance that if we needed anything, he could take care of it.

Disappointed for a number of reasons

Pros: Nice beach and pool area. Check-out was quick and efficient.
Cons: Housekeeping staff needs to be quiet while outside. Furniture in rooms needs to be replaced or painted. Check-in needs to be faster.
check-in very slow. Need to be more informative at check-in about the hotel amenities. Activities schedule needs to be more accurate and prominently displayed in lobby. Need designated smoking areas; I inhaled lots of second-hand smoke. Furniture in room was nicked up. Request a room facing courtyard as the rooms facing the sidewalks are very noisy, not from the guests but from the workers. Housekeeping staff yells up and down the sidewalks, walkie-talkies loud, golf carts and trucks going back and forth. Never stayed at a hotel where the staff was so loud. Restaurants: Italian good food but bright lights. Japanese so-so. Gourmet restaurant was ok. Jambalaya restaurant very good steaks and friendly service. Restaurant servers not real friendly and we felt they were rushing us to order. Restaurants need to display their menus outside. Would not rate this hotel a 5*. Housekeeping was sporadic; grounds not real tidy; pool area, walkways and buffet restaurants had slippery floors when wet. Beer selection poor. Fitness Center very nice, lots of equipment and friendly staff. Nearby Iberostate Golf Course nice greens, lacking balls on range; supposed to get a sandwich with your paid greens fees but found out we had to purchase a drink to get the "free" sandwich; golf staff not helpful, no towels on carts. Rained for 2 days, therefore not much to do. Nice beach and pool area. Overall, a disappointing trip as we expected more from a "5*" hotel.
