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.

Relaxing and Lovely

My partner and I traveled to Punta Cana for the first time and, having stayed at other Iberostar Grand resorts, we opted for their Grand Hotel Bavaro. The resort design is wonderful with immaculately-landscaped grounds, several beautiful pools, and ample areas for quiet relaxation if that is what you choose. They have the best stretch of beach in the area if you'd prefer to be closer to the ocean. The staff is friendly, always saying 'Hola!" and ensuring we are enjoying our time. We celebrated an Anniversary yesterday and our butler, Silvestre, went out of his way to create a romantic evening including a bubble bath with a bottle of champagne, rose petals on our bed, and then the delivery of a delicious cake. The pool bartenders are happy to make what you desire, and our favorites there have been Lely and Silverstre (different from our butler) who was willing to learn a new drink that is my partner's favorite from one of our local Manhattan restaurants. Every morning, Natali provided attentive care at our breakfast, bringing mimosa, espressos, and sparkling waters. We particularly enjoyed dining at the Gourmet and Italian restaurant. Do not hesitate to request the wine menu at each restaurant as they offer many additional bottles that are still included on the all-inclusive. If you are seeking an indulgent trip where you are able to relax, enjoy quiet days poolside, and have any need met by a generous staff, you will be more than happy to visit Iberostar Grand Hotel Bavaro.

First time in Dominican Republic. We will definitely be returning. The resort was beautiful and immaculate. Stayed 5 days. Great experience from check in to check out. All staff were very accommodating. Many thanks to our personal butlers Silvestre and Kelvin who made every minute feel like home. They were simply amazing. Also many thanks to Didi our wonderful "activity director " who always seemed to get us to participate in events with her smile. And last but not least our excellent housekeeping staff both day and evening. Great resorts!

Vacation in paradise

Our vacation was outstanding. The workers on top of their game in all aspects, from the reception desk to the grounds keepers to the wait staff. Our butlers Silvestre and Kelvin were at our beck and call with answers and solutions to anything and everything we needed. The housekeepers were amazing, even providing a surprise bubble bath with rose petals in our private room hot tub. This is a must stay resort. The restaurants are great. Especially the French one. Tip....Make reservations for the 4 main ones before arriving. The beach and the huts on it are wonderful too. Definitely coming back. John and Regina

Silvester and Kelvin are the best butlers!! Resort is amazing. Food and drinks are excellent. This resort is more upscale and better than the rest here. You are getting what you pay extra for. Be prepared for pampering at the extreme! No kids! Weather was amazing. Quiet and relaxing while a lot of activities for fun when you are ready for it. Everyone here was so accommodating. I spoke to management while there to set up something special and they went over and beyond what I asked and hoped for. Thank you everyone for an amazing experience and vacation!Chris rm 7340
