Great Experience except for Timeshare Offer

I really liked the Iberostar Bavaro, it was quiet, clean, the service was good, it felt safe and overall met all of my expectations. I used the pools which tended to have a lot of kids, so I opted to go to the beach most of the time. Which was so comfortable under the sun or under the shady huts. The dining was good, although by the 3rd day at the buffet it got a little boring. We wanted to make reservations at the al la carte restaurants but they were completely booked, so that was frustrating. But the service and staff were very attentive and helpful. The evening entertainment was good, we especially loved the sunset dinner and entertainment on the beach. Iberostar really went to alot of effort to do this and it made for a very memorable night. The spa and gym are new buildings and really nice. The rooms are a little dated, but we are on vacation - we dont spend time in the rooms!! The only down side to the experience was the breakfast to learn about the Iberostar membership/time-share, the representatives took 2 hours of our vacation to end the offer very rudely. The representatives, really upset me and made us feel very uncomortable. DO NOT fall for the free offer associated for sitting though a time share offer. The representatives are extremely rude, and really ruined by R & R state of mind. I am on vacation, not interested in disrespectful, rude people with attitude. All in all, it was good a experience.

Disappointed

I was so looking forward to this vacation but it turned out to be the worst. We travel often to different parts of the Caribbean and I had been to punts Cana about 12 years ago. This resort was awful. Beat up rundown the service was bad with the exception of a few (Michael, Alex and the older lady at the beach bar) who really tried there best to make us happy. They were closing down for renovations 2days after our departure and all we heard the employees say were how they wanted the hotel to close down already. Made us feel so welcomed lol I couldn't believe it. We went to celebrate my daughter and my husbands birthday but had I known it was going to be this way I'd never would've booked our stay at the iberostar bavaro. The ONLY highlight was the Beach. That I will 5 stars but the resort 0 if I could. The AC was weak. Someone came to "fix" but we didn't see the change. One night the power went off so yea we sweated our behinds off. The food was less than desirable..whenever we asked for something they would tell us they didn't have it available and because they were closing they were not restocking anything.....not food or liquor!!! The pool was a sess pool. Dirty, felt slimy full of mosquitos and leaves. Cracks at the bottom of the pool, The handrails were broken. For what I paid this was UNACCEPTABLE. We only went once to the pool and felt bad because my daughter really wanted to go but even she was turned off by how gross it looked. We were there a week. For her birthday we did do an excursion which was really fun. We say that was the best part of the trip. The HIGHLIGHT was the night before we were to leave Punta Cana the lady came in to do the turn down service while we went out to dinner. The next morning the safe was open and a note saying to call the locksmith to come and fix it.... Of course when we counted our money my husband was missing $200 dollars. Omgggggg this has never happened to us. We couldn't do much because we had a morning flight back home. This is by far the worse place I've ever stayed at. DO NOT STAY AT THIS RESORT.

PARADISE!!!!!!!

This is the 4th time I've been to Iberostar Resorts it is WONDERFUL... The resort is very clean the food was good, large variety, very fresh, for anyone who is vegan NO PROBLEM. The bed was very comfortable nice mattress, bedding high quality, pools were super. Had no problem with anything. Would go again in a heart beat, and will. Had no encounter with any bugs of any kind, took bug spray didn't use it, but we weren't out late at night, so maybe that's when they come out.

What's to Love

You gotta love that 24-hour room service at Iberostar Bavaro. Punta Cana is yours to explore without worrying about making it back in time for dinner.

 

What We'd Change

This place is seriously gigantic, but we love that golf carts are available for getting where we need to go.

 

Why You Should Go

The beautiful resort and gorgeous beach are big enough that even when it's jam packed, you don't feel crowded.

Hotel Description

Iberostar Bavaro: Find Family, Food and Fun

If you need a Caribbean home base, catch the waves at Iberostar Bavaro in Punta Cana, where the turquoise water of Bavaro Beach welcomes you. Located in the Iberostar complex that includes sister hotels, Iberostar Dominicana and Iberostar Punta Cana, the resort offers guests all inclusive privileges in all three Iberostar hotels giving guests more than 10 restaurants and 10 bars. The 24-hour service makes this Caribbean resort perfect for couples and singles who prefer to vacation without an agenda.

Chill out on the white-sand beach with a pina colada from the Siboney Beach Bar while watching the kids bodysurf, or splash around in the huge central pool with the swim-up Los Bohios Bar for sharing a fresh, young coconut with someone special. Work up an appetite with all that swimming? The resort has a ton of options that will tease you out of the pool: from mouth-watering crawfish at Jambalaya to shrimp-tempura rolls at Hashiru, everyone leaves full. Or, if the kids are picky eaters, hop on over to the Dominicana's Star Rock Cafe, where the old-school swag and burgers will get them all smiles. Afterward, check out "DC-6," the disco styled after an airplane where the DJ spins international hits in a cockpit.

The nights and days are full of excitement at the Iberostar Bavaro; Punta Cana is a playground for windsurfing, kayaking, water polo and even learning how to salsa while your kids have their playtime at Lucy's Club where the little ones draw, watch films and meet new friends. Feel free to try your luck at the Dominicana's casino for a game of craps, or treat yourself to a chocolate wrap for a skin-softening, pick-me upper at the on-site spa.

After a day of fun, the bungalow-style Junior Suite is cozy enough for couples and spacious enough for the whole family with options for one king or two double beds, and a sunken living room area that opens onto a patio or balcony for comfy nights and lazy days.

This hotel is All-Inclusive.

  • Breakfast, lunch and dinner in the restaurants

  • National and international drinks, including top-name spirits and soft drinks, 24 hours a day
