Great Honeymoon!

My wife's sister recommended this hotel for our honeymoon. She had expressed that the service was great, hotel was beautiful, and staff was amazing. I have to say we experience all of those and more. First once you get to the hotel they give you a cool towel to wipe your face and hands from sweating. the hotel greats you with a pina coloda or champagne. My wife and me had both! check in is very easy and they explain all that the hotel has to offer. All your luggage is taking to your room for you. Once you get to your room, your butler meets you to discuss all of the great things he could help you with. Advice have him book you dinner reservations. The pool is great they have a swim up bar with all you need to drink. There is always 2-3 bartenders which makes getting a drink easy. They also have a great a la cart next to the pool full with lobster, sword fish, tuna, pizza, hamburgers, and desserts.

Phenomenal experience

I was absolutely impressed with my overall experience at Iberostar Grand Bavaro Hotel in Punta Cana. The hotel is absolutely gorgeous! From the beautiful crystal blue pools in front, to the flamingos in the lobby, to the gorgeous, lush grounds. This hotel is spotless, extremely clean and the hallways leading to the rooms always smelled wonderful. I cannot say enough about the staff as well. Every single person was genuinely interested in making sure we had everything we needed in the room (usually it was to restock the booze/water in the mini bar). Our 2 butlers were magnificent and didn't hesitate to bring us room service, start our bubble bath (with running jets and rose pedals), and ensure we had everything we wanted. The room was extremely comfortable and gorgeous, the bed was great, and they have a pillow menu in case you weren't satisfied with the standard pillow. The concern with our comfort was of ultimate priority to the staff and they beyond exceeded the expectation I had. I highly recommend this gorgeous hotel to anyone who wants to be pampered and relax on a gorgeous beach or take a dip in the pool.

The staff are very friendly & are very well-mannered. This was our first trip here for our honeymoon & we couldn't be more thankful. The staff made our trip one to definitely remember.

Birthday Present

This was planned trip since March 2016. It was much anticipated trip to a full service beach resort to celebrate my girlfriends birthday. That being said the wait to go was a long one but it gave us time to plan everything and get it right. The property was exquisite and the service excellent. The pool and beach areas were always clean or being cleaned. The room facing the beach is a most and the room was 10/10 the buyer and maid service was 11/10. As an all inclusive resort for adults only there were not a feeling of over crowding but one of exclusivity. Where ever you went there were no long waits, service was present but not intrusive and ready always to take care of your needs. The butler and maid took care of the in room birthday presentation and it seemed that everyone in the resort knew it was her birthday and made it a special occasion. The food was very good over all three meals at the buffets and the restaurants were excellent although the food didn't always get the same touch as the Buffet line. Not sure why there was a drop off there but still 8/10. The only thing that was out of sort was the presentation to purchase a membership in the Iberostar resort line. A half a day listening to a hard sales pitch which at the end of the day most would have avoided. Other than that one hiccup The resort is 5 star and 9/10 for the "exclusive reservation needed" resturantes where the food and service were a little sub par.

What's to Love

It's an all-inclusive, all-aahsome, all-adults escape haven.

The butlers and pillow menu - you'll get used to living large.

Destressing at the luscious oceanfront spa with Turkish baths and Thai massages.

The cool towels and cocktails you're offered when you're feeling a bit warm.

 

What We'd Change

Although evening entertainment is provided, the resort can be quiet at night. If you're looking to spice things up, visit the casino at the next-door sister hotel.

 

Why You Should Go

It's 35 minutes from the airport. Vacay cocktails will begin pronto.

You can golf at the 18-hole course designed by P.D. Dye at the sister property.

Don't miss zip lining over the rainforest canopy at nearby at Taino Mountain.

There are activities out the wazoo: tai-chi, spinning, ping pong tennis and oceans of water sports.
