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.

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.
