Beautiful Hotel with all the amenities.

Pros: Staff, facilities, restaurants, entertainment, and access to the beach.
Cons: I would have a lazy river up and around the boat that connects to the pools
Location: Great Location. A short drive from the airport.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the adults-only Iberostar Grand Bavaro. The facility and staff were 1st class.

Fabulous all inclusive

We went for our 25th wedding anniversary and could not have been more pleased. The staff could not have been friendlier. They cater to your every need and make a point to call you by name. Accommodations were excellent and the location was right on the beach. The beach area was beautiful and was where we spent most of our time. The resort was just the right size; easy walk to anywhere. If you are wanting a lively night life, however, this resort might not be for you. If you are wanting a relaxing, adult only resort with excellent service, very good food, and beautiful beaches, then you can't go wrong with Iberostar Grand Bavaro.

5 star hotel and experience all around!

Pros: Spacious, beautiful grounds with an amazing staff.
Cons: The only thing that could be improved upon would be the cabanas, making it fair for all guests to have an opportunity to access a cabana.
A stunning & spacious hotel; beautiful all around; extremely well kept & clean, Room: We stayed in the swim up pool suite, which was so unique. We could step off our patio right into a pool as well as lay in chairs set in the water. Overall the room met all of our needs; great shower, comfortable bed. Staff: We cannot say enough about the hotel staff; each & every staff member we encountered from the maids, front desk staff, pool side staff, servers, & of course the butlers were so friendly & obviously there to make every guest feel comfortable and there to meet every need. PLEASE tip them! Food: Definitely make your reservations the day you arrive for the restaurants. We thought we would want to eat late each night and make 9pm reservations and was only able to get in early one night. The buffets are pretty impressive with the presentation and offerings. Loved the grill off the pool where all day you could get nachos, grilled lobster tails and steak! Spa: The spa was wonderful; I visited there everyday of my visit for a service. It was great that I could go there in the morning and easily schedule an appointment for later that day. Pools & Beach: Gorgeous & relaxing settings, very spacious. The only issue was that guests would reserve their seats, specifically the cabanas by 8am so if you arrived after that it was hard to find one. Unfortunately, many of the reserved cabanas sat unused with a towel "saving" it. They should come up with a better system for that.

Great stay at Iberostar Grand

Pros: The People. By the end of the week we felt like they were "familia"l
Cons: Food in some of the restaurants was hit or miss. Surf and Turf and French were by far the best. Spa was not great. Gym is better at sister resort.
Location: Location was great. Didn't really go off the property. Convenient to airport.
The great thing about the Iberostar Grand is the service and the people. The inclusion of a personal butler made the stay worry free. Justo was there every morning when we walked out of our room and if not he found us during the day to see if we needed anything. There wasn't anything we asked for that he didn't take care of. Justo you are the best and when we come back we're going to request you! Other activities coordinators and servers were Starling (darling young man), Johnny (sommelier), Eduardo. I know I've missed some - sorry. It was so nice by the end of the week to be greeted as a friend eveyplace we went on the resort. They seemed genuinely glad to see us. Would definately go back to this resort.

Outstanding! Everything was immaculate and the food was the best we had ever had (at all inclusive style resorts). The staff was extremely pleasant, knowledgeable, polite, and not pushy. We will definitely come back soon!

First Class All The Way!

The hotel and staff were amazing and met our every needs. It was first class all the way! I've been to all-inclusives before but they never included the mini bar, 24 hour room service and a butler. The staff was so friendly and always greeted us with a smile and hello. They have 5 restaurants that you can make reservations when you arrive with your butler or concierge. Make sure the men bring pants, shirts and shoes for dinner because it isn't stated on the website. One couple we met didn't bring pants but the hotel bought him a pair and he had to wear them every night. The main restaurant has the best buffet ever with everything you can imagine. We always went after our reservations if one of us didn't care for what we ordered or wanted extra desserts. We liked all the restaurants, except the Italian one. Every time I had an issue with one of my excursions, they would help me out with the communications. Make sure you bring plenty of tip money because minimum wage is only $2 per hour and you will definitely want to show your gratitude. We found the best shopping deals with the local shops on the beach. The only problem is that they are very high pressure. You can go to the mall for free at 9:45am every morning and they pick you up after 1 hour and 45 minutes. If you don't get your 3 stamp validation, it will cost you $5 person. Make sure you ask for coupons from the concierge to get discounts on the spa services, which are wonderful.
