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.

#1 for a reason!

This is our third trip back to the Iberostar Grand in PC and our 6th to Punta Cana. We stayed from May 13th-May 20th. Already can’t wait to return next year! Somehow it gets better every year. The beach, pools, grounds, everything is beautiful. The staff continues to go above and beyond. They’re what really makes The Iberostar Grand the best in Punta Cana or anywhere else for that matter. Starting with Osiris and Melvin at the front desk check in. With all the people they meet every day, I can’t believe they remembered us. They’re just the nicest guys all the time. The room was always cleaned perfectly, a big thank you to housekeeping. We had the best butler Leandro. What an absolute pleasure he is. We saw him all day, morning, noon and night. I don’t know when he ever sleeps. It was sad to say goodbye to him. I hope we see him again next year. We were so happy to see Rafael again! He recognized us from a different resort he worked at in the past. When I did my review of that Resort I mentioned what an awesome butler he was. What a great catch for the Iberostar Grand to have him. Edward & Julio at the Butler and Concierge desk were so helpful. Again, they were always there, answered every question we had and helped us with our airport transfer. Carme Vicens the Rooms Division Manager was awesome. There has to be at least 6 of her because she was everywhere all the time, asking how everything was, if we needed anything etc. As busy as I know she is, she always took the time to talk with us. We get an Oceanfront Room every year. This year with the view we had, we are truly spoiled. To me, it’s worth the extra money. We were lucky to see Ariel sing in the lobby. What a voice! Make it a point to see her if you can! We do the buffet every night. We’ve been to all the restaurants and they’re good, but the buffet is just as good. The food is cooked fresh. Juan on the grill and the pasta man cooked us dinner with love. The omelet lady in the morning, the best! Of course the pool side and lobby waitresses are beyond awesome! They work so hard and are always are such a pleasure. I hope they get recognition, I just wish I could remember all their names! The Star Team is awesome, they work hard and even if you don’t participate, they’ll take the time to try to get to know you. There’s a nice little ecological zone to the right on the resort. It’s really nice, very cool. We loved walking around in there. In the resort we loved feeding the geese/ducks/turtles, coy fish and all the different birds. We’ve considered going to other resorts and have been to many, but there is a reason Iberostar Grand is the #1 Hotel in Punta Cana. The staff and service are second to none. Stay here! You'll love it!

Relaxation at its best

This hotel is an adult only 5star + on accommodation, facilities, ambiance, service and restaurants.We stayed for a short break whilst attending a wedding.The rooms are palatial, with copious amounts of marble and high class furniture. The bathroom are especially good with double Jacuzzi or roomy shower.Views are either lush gardens or sea view across the vast man made lagoons that fill the hotels route to the beach. The walk down through the lagoons through the swaying palms and immaculately coiffured gardens moves on through the Cabana sunbeds passing a number of pools one with swim up bar. Finally the white sand beach with sunbeds and attendants tending to your wishes. Not being Golfers I have not mentioned the two onsite golf courses that front the hotel approach as you arrive.The staff themselves are very attentive and deal with your wishes promptly.Inside the hotel the high standards continue with beautiful antique style furniture and classic sculptures decorate the public areas. There is a theatre with bar that runs music hows most nights.It is not cheap, but a week here is worth the effort.

Great time... needs some improvement

Beautiful property, attentive staff, and mostly terrific food with some notable "misses"...Biggest issue for us: not enough scheduled activities.. both during the day and in the evening. The show didn't even start until 10 PM each night...

Beautiful Holidays

We stayed at the Grand Hotel Bavaro in May 2017. It was, EXCELENTE! from the moment we arrived to the moment we left.... there was not a moment that we could have said was less than perfect. When we arrived, Waldo & Yuderkis,(and they both remebered our names days later!) made us welcome, provided the wonderful Pina Coladas while we waited for our rooms to be ready. (we arrived early than expected) and while one room was going to take some time, they collected our luggage and provided us the famous drink of the island! we went to lunch and a tour of the hotel. We met with our Butlers, who took care of every single thing we needed, all fine dining reservations to getting our floats inflated! LLUDISA our chambermaid, was the best. Friendly, helpful and just so very nice. Everynight we had the most beautiful room turndown, she took care of everything. Everyday we had beautiful weather, bungalows right on the water and the service was above par. And the activities, so much fun! Luz & Starling are the best Bachata with Mamaba teachers and Spanish with Miguel, he was so good at teaching and very patient with us while we learned. the hotel, the food, the service everything was top notch and we had an amazing holiday!

Meteora Grand Hotel, Kalambaka, Greece

The Meteora Grand Hotel is very new, stylish and beautifully appointed, helpful staff, spacious and probably the best accommodation in Kalambaka for visiting spectacular and stunning Meteora. A little bit out of town but well worth it!
