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.

Best Service EVER

I cannot say enough amazing things about this resort and our ever accommodating Butler, Jeffry! He went out of his way every single day to ensure our happiness!!! We will definitely return to the Iberostar Grand in Punta Cana!

  • Jennifer A :
Wonderful Time!

My sister and I came for a girls only vacation before my wedding! The entire experience was incredible, from the food to the pristine beaches. I have to say what made our trip was our butler Jeffry. He did everything for us from making our dinner reservations to making sure our mini bar was stocked with our favorite snacks. He also came and visited us when we lounged by the pool to make sure there was nothing else we needed. The trip would've been great as is but he really went above and beyond to make sure it was the best experience we've ever had. We will definitely come back and request him.

"Grand" Experience, Top Notch

From the moment we arrived my family experienced nothing but the highest level of service from everyone at this beautiful resort. Dany, at the front desk, checked us in and was welcoming and helpful. We had three butlers during our stay, each outstanding (Cesar, Alejandro and Alan), helpful and engaging. This was the case with all the staff at the hotel, of which there were many. The wait staff at all the restaurants and bars were friendly and wanted nothing but for us to have fun and enjoy. A special shout out to Ortiz in the Bella Vista Restaurant from "La Princesa", who made us feel so special each day. The food at the buffets and the specialty restaurants was of the highest quality and delicious, probably the best food we've experienced at an all-inclusive in the Caribbean. The wifi was excellent all over the hotel property (even on the beach). The pool and beach were beautifully maintained, there were always plenty of chairs available (comfortable too). Our rooms were lovely, meticulously clean and very comfortable. I honestly can't come up with a single negative to our stay and would go back in a flash! This hotel was worth every penny and in the end was a fabulous value. I highly recommend using Domincan Plus transport to and from the airport, highly reliable and a great deal for a private car service ($60 RT for 4 people).

Just returned from three nights at the Iberostar Grand and we were so sad to leave. From being greeted by a gentleman with cool towels , champagne at reception when we checked in which was handled by Clarissa with such professionalism and kindness along with the world class meals it was an experience like no other. We needed medication from the pharmacy after it closed but Clarissa had this sorted for us within minutes. The buffet has huge choices for all tastes and everything was extremely fresh. We tried the Japanese and Mediterranean restaurants which our butlers kindly reserved for us and both were phenomenal. The quality of the food is unbelievable. Our room was beautifully decorated and was kept immaculate by housekeeping at all times. The pool is centrally located with plenty of cabanas and sun beds. Drinks are brought to you or you can go to the bar and order if you prefer. The beach was beautiful, the waves were quite high because of the weather but there is a life guard on duty at all times. Any request we had for our two butlers Alan and Alejandro was never too much trouble, they called in several times a day, chatted with us if we met them on the grounds, brought us any little thing we required and always with a smile and impeccable manners. The resort is fantastic with their best asset being the courteous and friendly staff who go out of their way to help you. We hope to return soon.
