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 Hotel rooms were nice (slightly outdated) but very comfortable and always kept clean by the staff.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.

Family holiday travel

My parents had just stayed here in October and they recommended it. They were right, family friendly, excellent staff, wonderful shows, lots of activities at the pool. The buffet was a variety and wonderful. The hibachi was well worth the reservation. Only thin would be to try to get in early. By the fifth day I was told I could book for the next day. Beaches beautiful, vendors aggressive, waves on beach fun for my kids and the breeze was great! Not too busy but full. The pool was full everyday. My kids had a blast at the kids play area. A great 13 days! Highly recommend for relaxation!

Mixed feelings on changes at Iberostar Bavaro

Pros: Hotel is clean and bars are stocked well. Bartenders are friendly and helpful.
Cons: Communication. They hired a lot of new people making communication difficult at times and not understood. Service in specialty restaurants
Iberostar Bavaro is a beautiful resort and great beach. A little seaweed when storm came in but that was expected. We have stayed there before and were a little disappointed in some of the service. This year specialty restaurants became "no reservations" required and also dress code was relaxed. Before men needed long pants and no t-shirts, tanks, etc. This change is great for beach bums but disappointing for people who are looking for a nicer environment. I feel if you are going to nice restaurant you should dress accordingly. Because of no reservations there were more people in restaurants so you didn't get the service you expected.

Great hotel and staff!

Cons: A few things could be improved. Coffee in the room and buffet was lukewarm, we didn't always get washcloths or coffee supplies and ground signage.
Location: Location was great. Excursions like Dolphin Explorer, Reef Explorer were close by. Even though some excursions were further away, shuttles came by.
Rooms were updated, a good size and clean. All of the hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. Hotel grounds were beautiful. Buffets and restaurants were pretty good! La Dorada restaurant had the best steak and langostino meal! We stayed in the family part of the resort. Lots of ethnicities and languages which the hotel staff did a good job of making everyone feel welcome. Kudos to the office staff for getting my cell phone on the WiFi. We were very pleased with Iberostar and would recommend others to book with them!
