Our Opinion
The Iberostar Grand Hotel Bavaro is a part of the other Iberostar Suites found in the Punta Cana Resort. This a resort that is definitely more suited for adult travelers and couples. This resort is notable for their outstanding staff. It can be guaranteed that all of your concerns and needs will be acknowledged by one of their attentive staff members. The rooms are modern and well-maintained. Make sure that you request an oceanview room if you can, as the view is spectacular. Plenty of room at the beach for lounging. Great buffet items to choose from. However, the a la carte items can be a bit of a hit or miss, depending on where you go. With the sheer size and this resort suited for an older clientele, it does have a tendency to get a bit quiet at times. This is definitely a destination to relax rather than party. If you're looking for a resort that is elegant, serene, and classic, this is the place to stay.
A stunning hotel on the pure sands of Punta Cana, the Iberostar Grand Hotel Bavaro is a decadent escape. Its spectacular 2-storey oceanfront spa, cozy music bar and intimate in-room whirlpools make it a vacation Mecca for adults. Add in the personalized in-room services, fine dining and extravagant accommodations and this hotel will leave you asking 'Can I stay an extra week?'
Location: Beachfront, 35 minutes from Punta Cana International Airport.

tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • JBZ318 : Newburgh, NY

We just returned from a week at the Grand. The hotel is beautiful and we found all of the staff caring. We checked in and my husband was not feeling well. Yudi was able to get a room for us right away. This was the beginning of an awesome week. We had two of the best butlers Alejandro and Luis. There wasn't anything that could not be done! They both were awesome. The pool bar was great and the bartender Ery made our week so much fun. He had the best personality. The beach waiters were great as well we want to give a special thank you to Manuel who was so very nice and caring. I cannot say enough good things about all of the staff we encountered at this hotel. We have traveled to the Dominican Republic for many years and never received this level of service. We were very happy with everyone we encountered. We ate at a few of the restaurants at the property we found the Surf and Turf to be the best. Everyone has their own opinion for food. I felt the buffet was not the best. This would be the only negative that I can truly come up with..

We stayed here for a week, it was the best vacation we have ever been on. Butler Leo was the best, helped us book our dinner reservations and one night did a romantic jacuzzi bath for us. Everyone is fantastic here, food is delicious. All of the restaurants were great, we didn’t have a bad meal once. Everyone is so friendly and helpful, we cannot wait to come back. Cabanas by the pool and the beach with no issues getting one.

I would highly recommend the Iberostar Grand in Punta Cuna. The service and accommodations were superb and we would definitely visit again.The food was outstanding. We were celebrating our Anniversary and our Butlers made sure that our day was a memorable event.

Great as usual

Our second vacation here. Exceptional property, and hand picked staff. All friendly, happy people. All inclusive is the way to go. Our Butler again aims to please. Just ask. Thanks a gan Rafael for perfect service. Some of the cabana mats need to be replaced. Everything else is perfect

Perfect relax vacation with my love

First of all, I have to tell you that this hotel is magnificent ❤️ Lovely place, lots of sunbed and chairs on the beach ! Beach : The beach is wonderful, almost no seaweeds, white sand, clear water, very long to do a nice walk. Only negative point is that I heard a lot of people getting burn by jelly fish . . But you know it’s part of the game with the careebean sea.Pool : Nice pool, like I said lots of room to sit and get tan . I don’t know if it’s always like that because we met a couple that was their 3rd time and they tell us that it was very quiet compare to their other visit. Maybe because of the hurricane Hurricane : The hotel and the site is not affected by the hurricane, if you walk on the beach, you’ll see that other resort is not yet still restablish from it but Grand Bavaro Is ok Food : WOW ! Buffet, breakfast, lunch, dinner, everything is very good. Japanese restaurant is the best yet but we didn’t try the surf and turf yet, we try it tonightService : excellent! Butler assigned to each suite, very effective with restaurant reservation and everything you need. We had a wifi problem in the room, they take them 2 days but still, they made came an electrician to put a new routeur in the room . We were very happy Room : We had the swim out suite. Room 7031. (Suite with a pool) . We regret our choices. We were facing I think employees room or I don’t know but lots of noise in the morning, walkie talkie, golf kart etc.. plus the room on top of us was smoking and their ashes were falling in our pool ... very not nice Activities : We loved archery and tennis. Personal are very nice and not too insisting if you don’t want to do their activities which is nice because we are there to relax Ambiance : Hôtel adult only it’s a big plus ++++ Very quiet if you are looking to do party and nightclub this is definitely not an hotel for you . It’s quiet at night, which we liked very much, you can really relax Repeat ? Yes we are meeting the air transat this afternoon to check for Christmas. We still have one night left and we don’t want to leave ... hope well have a wonderful last night at the surf and turf :)
