Best honeymoon spot

The first night we were there we were a little too late for dinner but got room service sent to us. The food was mediocre and we were pretty nervous about how the rest of our stay was going to be. The next day we quickly realized that the service is amazing, the drinks are great, and the food is good if you know where to go. We were impressed by the folks that go around trying to round up people for activities, they were always checking in on us making sure we were having a good time. We decided that the best way to approach food was to only get coffee and pastries in the room for breakfast and then hit the buffets for everything else. The restaurants were great. The pool and beach were kept super clean. The ocean was so clear you could see your feet standing in it. The weather was 82 degrees with a wonderful ocean breeze every day. The forecast called for rain almost every day but it only kept us from going out on one day for a few hours which was the perfect excuse to spend extra money to go to the spa (well worth it). Every single staff member was excellent at making you feel like you were on vacation. Some people that stuck out to us in particular were Armando, Starling, and Yuselmy ("Star Friends"), and our butlers Reynaldo and Luis. Every time we saw them they made it a point to come over and speak to us. They were great!

Iberostar Grand Hotel Bavaro - i will be back

What a wonderful trip, the staff so accommodating and did everything possible to make sure we had 5 star service, special note to our butlers Gusto and Alejandro, I have to say I am not used to being waited on like that, good thing I went home before I was completely spoiled. I do wish that all of the food was labeled in the buffet restaurant, some foods I did not recognize so I did not try them since I did not know what they were. Have to say that is my only complaint. Well one other thing, more drawers in the rooms for storage. Overall the room was great, clean and the air-conditioning worked well. this is the 2nd time i have been to an Iberostar Grand and it looks like they are becoming my favorite resort chain. Do take the time to eat at the restaurants, the Japanese was my favorite and but I did enjoy the others as well.

CANNOT WAIT TO GO BACK

By far the best resort I (and my family) have ever been to, and by far the best vacation we have ever been on. What made it the best vacation is not only the beautiful Dominican itself, but it was the atmosphere and the people at this resort that made it so amazing. The resort is absolutely beautiful and very well-maintained. The service was fantastic, and the staff was the best I have ever come across (and we go on vacations quite frequently!) The Star Friends are the BEST; they are SO friendly and so much fun. (Especially Armando!) The food was great, the drinks were amazing (Lely the bartender that's actually IN the pool is the BEST!), the place was beautiful, the activities were so much fun, and I simply cannot say enough positive things about this place. It can be whatever you want it to be; you can spend your time relaxing on the beach, at the pool, or in the spa, or you can take advantage of the numerous activities that the resort has to offer. The fitness center in the middle of the complex is great; they also offered really good classes. Being in the Grand, you have access to all of the three resorts. That is definitely the way to go! We were planning a trip back before we even left :)

Gr8 vacay

Very nice resort. Rooms and service were awesome. Beach sand was clean and did not get hot. Would have liked a snorkeling area off the beach but otherwise the water was real nice. They were very generous with the alcohol. Shows were not so good. Would like less shows but better quality. Maybe a movie night or a big bingo night with good prizes alternating with shows. Activities were really good but they should post updated schedules around (inc at the pool) and they would get more participants. Spa was really nice and the golf course was ok. Pools were nice but jacuzzi was not warmed.

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.
