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.
Right on a beautiful beach that goes for miles, plenty of walking. The rooms are clean, relatively modern, and well cared for, as is the entire property. It is adjacent to two other Iberostar properties which one has full access to. At the neighboring IB. Dominicana the pool and lunch facilities are right on the beach which we found more interesting to be at. This is all inclusive so all the food and drinks are included. The drinks are free flowing with many "top shelf" liquors available. The food is decent. If you are a "foodie" the caribbean will disappoint you. The general dining rooms, which are buffet style always have many selections to choose from. The specialty restaurants are better in the presentation is nicer. There is an international group of travelers at these hotels. My guess is approx. 1/3 american and canadian, 1/3 european, and 1/3 south american. This makes the food choices very diverse to accommodate these different groups. The nightly entertainment is limited and often very amateurish.We did two off resort excursions to get a feel for the rest of the island. Outback Safari took us to local homes and coffee growers, The Scape park took us into underground caves and swimming hole. Both recommended. All in all a good vacation suitable for couples and families. There didn't seem to be much of a singles scene.
Very friendly staff! I especially loved how the entertainment staff (ie Rafael) worked to get all involved to have a great time. The children program and Minerva who ran it were wonderful! Very personal touch as all the staff came over to us personally and remembered us and the kids. Shows were awesome! Grounds were stunning. Everyone there worked so very hard and was so friendly. I was very impressed that most of the staff also spoke multiple languages. We had an incredible vacation there!
Returned last week from 18 days at Iberostar Bavaro Suites. We came from Canada and had family/friends meet us there from Germany.Overall impression upon arrival was very nice setup. Drive up from main gates was nice as you passed through the resorts golf course. Main lobby and reception area was large and open. Iberostar has four resorts here so it is a large resort area. The Bavaro Suites is a large setup of two story units with four units on each floor.The rooms were very nice, lots of space. We were on the second floor and I would recommend this as it gives you some privacy in your room. The negatives on the rooms would be: 1) The mattresses could be upgraded. They are not the worst beds but for being "suites" I would expect a little better. 2) There is no dresser in the suite. Because we stayed for over two weeks with our daughter, we had a lot of clothes. Only the closet with hangers and a couple of shelves to put stuff on.The buffet and ala carte restaurants were very good. We tried all the ala cartes with exception to the adult only ones. The Steak House and the Mediterranean were our favorite. The Jambalaya restaurant was so-so. The Japanese restaurant was also a little disappointing. We really enjoyed the Japanese restaurant in Iberostar Cancun last December. The chef was not able to execute the cooking time properly and everyone was eating their food at different time. The main buffet(s) were good, the staff were very friendly. At our buffet, Michael, was excellent. He always noted when came to eat. In the morning he had a table always ready for our group setup for the kids. These guys work so hard, you see them working buffets during the day and then ala carte at night. The beaches were very good, we are members and have access to the members only area. The regular beach area always had room as the resort(s) cover 4 hotels on the beach. The service at the beach was very good and they always had a ton of activities going on of all sorts. The kids club was good, lots of activities and they kept the kids busy. Because we had other kids in our group we did not utilize the kids club as we did in Cancun. But the days the kids were there the staff was great.Overall I would rate the resort at a 4.0 - 4.5 rating and would recommend staying there.
Everything was wonderful and all we need, during our staying, were satisfied in the moment. Only the second visit to "La Dorada" was not so good because of the manager who was staying on the entrance and later try to help us during our supper, big women was not polied and our staying was not so good....
And once again, we spent our holiday at the Iberostar Bavaro Suites.The refurbished lobby looked really inviting and clean. As always, Betty Hernandez checked us in with all her know-how and charm. She is really great!!We stayed in a junior suite on the first floor. Our chambermaid Carmela arranged our room perfectly. Minibar was restocked daily!!Then the pool area. Well maintained, to few chairs in the shade though..Beach cleaned every day, what an endless job that is!The staff: every single one is so friendly and outgoing, (perhaps it helps that I speak Spanish), all bars and restaurants give great service and try to provide in everything you could ever need. Great!!Animation: what can I say!! Pantera!! What a guy! He is fantastic! The whole team is awsome, especially JJ and Pinky!! Fiesta playera! Paella party! Dance lessons!The shows were ok but we've seen them all before.Food was good, loads of langoust and lobster, njam njam!! We were at the specialty restaurants so many times, didn't go this time.Overall, once again we had a great vacation and are going back in November.Only one little downside, too many kids, but that's not the resorts fault.Love all of you guys,Big hugs and kiss, Ramona
