Love the Iberostar Resorts!!

This is our second time staying at an Iberostar Grand, with the first time being in the Rivera Maya. The service in Mexico was top of the line and we just loved everything about it, so we were super excited to visit the IGHB in the Dominican Republic. This resort did not let us down either. It was such a wonderful time and our butlers saw to it that our every need was met. Miguel, Edgar & Benjamin were FANTASTIC. We had a bubble bath ready and waiting each day when we got back from the pool before dinner. It was perfect! Lely and the whole staff at the pool bar made the days so much fun and we never went without a drink. The chef at lunch recognized us each day and brought freshly cooked lobster to our table. It was all so fabulous! I just can't say enough about the whole experience. Beautiful, relaxing and we can't wait to come back.

Awesome Vacation

I am way late on writing this review but I have to say, if you want 1st Class, then go to Iberostar Grand Hotel Bavaro. My husband and I just loved it. The people were so friendly and the entertainment was great. The foodwas pretty good. I especially liked having rock lobster everyday for lunch. That was the best!! We had a room that faced the ship. Loved the view. It was nice having coffee on the balcony and watched the resort wake up. The employees there work hard to keep it in great shape. We hope to be back in 2017.

Terrible

If you just want the whole beach thing, pretty views, couples type thing then it's fine. But if all inclusive means non stop good eating and drinks then maybe not. The food was the worst!!! The cold food wasn't cold, the hot wasn't hot. Just bad! Slim pickings at the buffets....weak drinks. The "suites" were small but clean. The beds weren't comfy, no fluffiness at all. Butler service was a joke. There the first day, couldn't be found after that. Room service sucked. Food was just disgusting all the way around and I'm far from picky...we went to the hard rock to eat...Some of the employees were pleasant, some were not. Meh...I would never stay here again.

The Details Make the Difference

The Iberostar Grand adults only inclusive is truly the #1 resort. They are all about the details, and it makes a difference. First and foremost the staff: Alejandro our butler was incredible, he was available at all the right times, but not intrusive. Due to his persistence we were get last minute dinner reservations and had a rose petal filled tub bath with campaign we will never forget. Kelvin Castro was a great waiter all week, greeting us with a genuine smile, and Yara was an incredible hostess always remembering us by name and greeting us warmly. The grounds are incredible with personnel constantly trimming, cleaning, vacuuming the pools, raking the beach, and assuring every cabana and chair was in perfect condition. We had a ocean view suite with a hot tub that was really something we will never forget. We enjoyed a beachside couples massage and a couples facial in the spa - both were world class and perfect. Not over priced for a resort and well worth it! The a la carte gourmet restaurant was our favorite, with the scallops starter and the duck confit as must. The Buffett was beautifully prepared for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Every day the Buffett took on a slightly different theme that kept it interesting and enjoyable. Why we WILL return: the genuine staff, beautiful facilities, tiki covered beach chairs, and the overall incredible experience.

What's to Love

Iberostar Grand Bavaro stands for excellent service in truly magnificent surroundings. You'll feel like an aristocrat as friendly waiters, desk clerks and butlers fulfill every wish.

 

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

If getting pampered sounds good, look no further. The beachfront spa is a good start, but there's no bad place to start at this wonderful adults-only resort.

Hotel Description

Iberostar Grand Bavaro Hotel: Savor the Mythical Bavaro de Punta Cana Beach for the Ultimate Adult Only Vacation

From the moment you check into the five-star Iberostar Grand Hotel Bavaro, tailor-made luxury seems so natural you'll wonder why you don't live here. A butler acquaints you with your sumptuous suite, and if your pillows don't suit, select others from the pillow menu. When you're a little warm, friendly staff provide cold towels and cocktails. From white-glove service at dinner to turn-down service, this adults-only, all inclusive Dominican Republic resort indulges you 24/7.

As you enjoy the uncrowded, pristine beach, take comfort in knowing that security guards ensure the beach remains private; as a result, there's never competition for lounge chairs or palapas. Perhaps you'd prefer a dip in one of the two lake-style pools to cool off. If so, you're not far from an enticing pina colada or dirty monkey at a swim-up bar. A separate activity pool features a music bar that's a replica of a Spanish galleon. There's no better spot to enjoy an intimate, starlit Caribbean night with your sweetheart.

Whether you want a private or couple's massage, the two-story beachfront spa pampers you from start to finish. Choose from shiatsu, Swedish or Thai massages. If you're in the mood for something different, aromatherapy or a chocolate exfoliation could be the answer.

Dinner is always entertaining at Hashira, one of the resort's four themed restaurants. Teppanyaki chefs grill duck and other delicacies right before your eyes at this unforgettable Japanese restaurant. El Galeon specializes in steaks and other themed restaurants include an Italian restaurant and a gourmet option that features cuisine from around the world. Bella Vista, the hotel's buffet option, makes breakfasts special with quail eggs and exotic fruits.

Golf is available at a sister property, Iberostar Bavaro Golf & Club. P. B. Dye designed the challenging course, known for crosswinds and sharp undulations. To get your blood racing even more, try the zip line course. At more than a mile long, this 10-stage course over the rainforest canopy at Taino Mountain is the first zip line in the Dominican Republic.
