Our Opinion

The Iberostar Bavaro is one part of the Iberostar Suites that are found in the Punta Cana Resort Strip. Much like other resorts found elsewhere, the Iberostar Bavaro maintains the same reputation in luxury and top-notch resort experience. This is a great resort for families and couples. There is a great balance between buffet and a la carte restaurants (the choices are not overwhelming). There are plenty of beach activities to partake in. However, make sure to either book these activities ahead or book equipment ahead of time. An amazing pool area. The pool area is big enough that there is never a shortage of loungers. There is also a separate pool specifically for kids.

Set amidst beautiful gardens where peacocks and flamingos roam freely and on the shores of an idyllic sugary white sand beach. The Iberostar Bavaro features charming villas housing spacious, marble-floored Junior Suites, each with a sunken living area and daybed. Take a splash in the huge pool, visit the disco and sports bar or take advantage of the many activities and amenities including a dive clinic, several on-site shops and the Mini Club for kids. Guests of the Iberostar Bavaro also have the option of using the recreational and dining facilities of the two neighboring sister hotels.

Location: Directly on Bavaro Beach, next to the Iberostar Dominicana, 45 minutes to Higuey, 35 minutes from the airport.

The Best vacation!!!

When the emotions have quieted down, it's time to describe our impression about the hotel.It is The best hotel in the 🇩🇴the food is always fresh and tasty, the attitude towards to the guests is for 100%. Thank you very much for a special dinner at Mediterranean restaurant, your attention is very valuable and general impression of holiday is created by such moments.Staff is always with sincere smiles on his face, always happy and ready to help. Animation is on the highest level. If you tired lying at the beach there are a lot of activities, different crazy games (iron man, beer competition etc), volleyball and of course our favorite dance lessons at the beach in the end of which you could tasted paella or lobster. You could get a tremendous pleasure without participation, just watching. The music is always on the top (thanks to all the DJ’s). We say thank you very much to all animators team.Pantera is the best boss, he is a professional. Big Mom will shake even the most inactive person. Everyone went crazy from the dancing by Beautiful ladies Milly, Rosa, J-J. They are very driving and positive girls. Pinky is the perfect opponent for playing ping pong, volleyball and dances. If you would like how to learn ask him. He is the Best Dancer as a Michael Jackson’s double. Tony is always on the positive.Also thanks to Jorgelina and Jose for the very delicious food and Manuel, Alex, Enrique for the positive mood near the pool bar.We really like to travel and have never returned to the same country but Dominican Republic and Iberostar Bavaro Hotel are an exception. If you are really happy then Iberostar Bávaro is your hotel.If you do not know how but you want to be happy in life, love your life always on the positive smile choose Iberostar Bávaro.If you are always embittered at this whole world by all people, never smile and think that in this world all should you something than you shouldn’t choose Iberostar Bávaro.If you really enjoy the life you should choose only Iberostar Bávaro❤️

Nice beach, nice pool. Buildings need a refurbishment.

the beach is very clean and there are no algae. So are the pools. The breakfast buffet is very good and rich. The restaurants are versatile but the food is average. Sometimes the personal is a little bit arrogant. At least our suite had some flaws (eg: power switches, shower). To many golf carts. Extra bed for 11 year old child was way too small (~ 140 cm long)

JJ and animation team made for unforgettable vacation.

This was our third time staying at an Iberostar. Two in Riviera Maya and now this one in Punta Cana. our group was 11 people. The resort is beautiful as expected with an Iberostar. The grounds crew does a great job keeping it looking spectacular. the beach had some seaweed, but it wasnt horrible. The food was as expected from a resort. You will be able to find something to eat regardless of pickiness. Many reviews with all the negatives seem to just be very picky people. Your on vacation, enjoy yourself and make the most of it. As said before this was our third Iberostar to stay at. The animation team at Iberostar Bavaro suites is second to none. They are all very good at entertaining the guests and just chatting with them. One particular stands above the rest. JJ.... JJ from day one learned all of our names and gave some of us nicknames, my father (sexy belly).. She would look for us each morning on the beach and come by to visit and see how we were doing. We played Bingo with her twice a day for the entirety of our trip. and at the evening shows we would dance with her or just visit with her. She made our trip the best imaginable. For the rest of the animation team, they work their butts off 11 or 12 hours a day to make your stay enjoyable, with little reward. So when your there, take some time and visit with them or join in with the activities they are doing. That is a great reward for them.. So JJ, Rosa, Mily, Tony, Rafael and Dorian, Thank you for a great week. A couple other shoutouts go to Yorki and Alex at the pool bar. They were fun to talk to and were always there to serve you with a smile. In conclusion, i would recommend this resort to anyone. It is all what you make of your vacation. Be positive, have fun and enjoy Life. and we will miss you everyday and love you JJ

Unforgettable Moments

We came to celebrate our high school reunion (20th anniversary) and Noel put together an amazing activities package. Really enjoying our time Iberostar stay!!! The Japanese theme restaurant, the amazing Jambalaya and all the amenities made it an unforgettable experience.

Don't waste your time and money

This is by far that worst trip ever, my fiancé and I are not picky at all and we have traveled to many all-inclusive resorts all around the world but you know the food is really bad when the first day you arrive you are worried and want to go back home already, the food is absolutely not edible, very poor quality and taste really bad. I ate fruit and water every day and only the dinners at night were edible and is the reason we didn’t starve on our trip. Besides the food being bad the customer service was horrible, I was really disappointed because I really thought Dominican people were going to be really nice but we were even scared to ask for anything or any questions because we would just get attitude every time. Most of the men were not that bad and nice but almost 95% of the females gave us attitude and were rude to us, so we would try to communicate with the males instead and I speak Spanish so that wasn’t the problem. I wish someone would’ve of warned us but for sure we will not return to the Dominican Republic, there is many more beautiful places in the world where people are a lot nicer and the food is good and edible.
