Wonderful resort. All the staff from reception, butlers (Staling & Sylvester), maids, room service, grounds, spa, restaurants, bartenders, wait staff and even the beach groomers were fantastic. By far the friendliest and most attentive hotel staff we have encountered. Facilities and service are top notch.

It was the best hotel experience and we enjoyed everything about it!! Clean hotel, amazing staff and the buffet food was yummy. Also the beach — the grand iberostar is the best resort and when meeting others who stayed at other resorts they said we started with the best! One more thing the staff is attentive to all your needs. We asked and they provided with a smile! I’m sure all the butlers are amazing and we were fortunate to have butler Justo (amazing)

We had a fabulous vacation at the Iberostar Grand Hotel Bavaro Adults Only - All inclusive! The resort is beautiful and the Management and Staff were all very, very nice and also very accommodating. We had an amazing Butler names Altagvacia who tended to our every need. She checked on us regularly throughout the day to make sure we had every accommodation possible to ensure that we were having a great stay at the resort. We have already shared pictures of this lovely hotel and have passed on our recommendation to friends. Thank you for a wonderful stay at your beautiful hotel, and a very special thanks to our very caring, professional, accommodating and awesome Butler, Altagvacia who made our vacation at the Iberostar Grand Hotel Bavaro so wonderful! Thank you again!

The Iberostar Grand Bavaro is fantastic. I just returned from a six-night stay with my mom. Everyone on staff is very eager to help and the grounds are immaculate. Our butler Verenise was always on hand to take care of the little details like dinner reservations and replenishing the mini bar. The beach was awesome, very secluded and peaceful. The water wasn't as clear and blue as I had hoped and there was quite of bit of seaweed in the surf. Apparently that was because there were storms in the Atlantic at the time, but by the end of the trip, the water was more clear. The pool was the place to be during the day with Caribbean music and frozen drinks flowing all day. There were plenty of activities like beach volleyball, water spin class, archery, etc. We loved the formal dinners each night at one of their specialty restaurants. All of our meals were very gourmet and the food was outstanding, with the exception of one bad entree at the Italian-themed restaurant. Overall, there's not much I would've changed. I would definitely give it 5 stars and can't wait to go back to paradise. If you're looking for a luxury all-inclusive trip to Punta Cana, this is the place.

Service was great and the buffet food selection and quality was very good. My only complaint is getting reservations at the different restaurants was not possible for all of the nights that we stayed on the property. Property is very nice and well maintained. Rooms clean and pool area was great for a relaxing day by the pool. The property is located on a very nice beach and has beach chairs for those wanting to enjoy the sand and ocean. The work out facilities are adequate. We enjoyed our stay and if we ever go back to the Punta Cana area Iberostar Grand Hotel will be at the top of our list of places to stay.

Our stay at Iberostar Grand Bavaro could not have been nicer! Every request, every amenity, every celebration was superb! We celebrated a birthday while there, and the staff (butlers Justo and Staling), every restaurant, every bar made the celebrations more and more special! Justo and Staling anticipated everything we needed with smiles on their faces the entire trip. The hotel itself was absolutely beautiful. The rooms were very comfortable, the food was delicious (could find something on every menu), the weather perfect. We are already planning our next trip there!

Just Your Average Guy Review

Pros: Staff, food, bars, overall atmosphere
Cons: Nightlife...pool and hot tub close at 7P. At least leave the hot tub open until later!
Location: Dune Buggy adventures, snorkeling, catamaran, parasailing
I booked this as our honeymoon hotel. I booked a room with an ocean front view. I am glad to say that "ocean front" is what it means: your room overlooks the ocean. We were originally on the 1st floor but the check-in staff said this was not good enough and was able to get us a room on the 2nd floor, which has a better view of the ocean. Awesome! Let me just break down the good and the bad: Pros - STAFF - they are beyond friendly and willing to help. Most have a basic understanding of English so that is helpful, but if you know some basic Spanish that is very helpful - HOUSEKEEPING - beyond amazing; they will clean your room everyday and it will feel like you walked into a new room each time it is so clean. They also put nice little touches like slippers at the bedside and cute sculptures out of towels - FOOD - they have 5 restaurants: Japanese, Italian, Surf & Turf, Mediterranean, and French. They only one we did not try was the Japanese. All were delicious, just make sure you book first thing when you get there - BARS - there is a swim up bar, a bar in ship, a cigar bar, and lobby bar. Bartenders are quite liberal with the alcohol CONS - This place isn't for those looking for a night life. The pools and hot tub shut down at 7p, no joke. They encourage guests to go to the shows. You can skip next door to the other Iberostar properties which have a casino and nightlife. But it is disappointing not to be able to drink in a hot tub and talk until the wee hours of the AM

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.
