Home away from home

Our stay at the Iberostar Bavaro suites once again has been exceptional! This was our 3rd year going and once again their service goes above and beyond. We are a party of 8 and coming back here every summer has become tradition. My youngest is 8 and has severe food allergies, so traveling with him overseas is scary. I was impressed that the resort took this seriously, chef Orlando is absolutely the best, he made off the menu items for my son and was always around to check on him. The servers, Virginia, Mario, Richard, Armando, etc... are incredible! They make you feel welcomed, always with a smile on their face and are very attentive to your needs. Besides the great service the food is diverse and delicious. The nightly shows are entertaining and family oriented. My only concern is the algae on the beach, so much washes on shore that it becomes an obstacle to enjoy the water. I know and have seen the resort clean the beaches daily but that whole shoreline of all the resorts gets tons of it. Even with that I was on the beach everyday and enjoyed my stay. I highly recommend Iberostar Bavaro Suites for your next family vacation!

Family Vacation

My family met for a family vacation and it was a wonderful week. The resort was beautiful. The food was delicious, even the dine in restaurants were worth the wait for reservations. The beach was not too good, I guess the weather the prior week was bad enough that the beach and water was filled with seaweed that couldn't be cleaned the week we stayed. My only issue was that I arrived at 12:30 and housekeeping was not finished cleaning my assigned room at check in, even after 3pm,I was still waiting for my room. I finally asked for a room change so I can go relax. Also, the Italian restaurant was trying to convince our party to order the specialty wines even after we insisted on ordering the house wine, I understand they wanted to make extra money, but they were very insistant. Other than that, we loved our stay and everyone was accommodating to our party of 20! We will definitely come back to this resort.

Politeness

The resort grounds, pools, and beach were absolutely gorgeous. The staff was extremely courteous and polite. But the rooms are VERY outdated and need to be upgraded, and I had to call several times for towels. Was advised we had a $400 Resort Credit, which was not the case. Overall, it was a good vacay.

Worst Resort ever

I don’t even know where to start. 1-the “suites” are super outdated. There was a smell of mildew through both rooms as if there was a flood and everything had water damage! It was horrible. My husband got sick then I got sick! . We booked two rooms, one for us and the other for our adult children. Room #2525 and 2526. One of the rooms had a humidifier running 24/7 unlike anything i’ve ever seen. The shower and bathtub had mildew and cracks that where filled with a tan colored silicone. The magnifying mirror in the bathroom was supposed to be chrome but it was so worned, it was cracked throughout. The shower head was black/mildewed as well. The rooms were in bag condition overall. They should have never allowed any human being to stay in those rooms. 2-the pool area needed so much maintenance. The pool bottom had cracks and it was discolored, yellowish. I was disappointed with its appearance. The swim up bar was full of children . Kids hanging out at the bar ordering non-alcoholic beverages. I’ve never seen such a thing. 3-My friend and her family arrive a day earlier and was told she had to go the very next morning (Saturday 7/21) to make dinner reservations for the specialty restaurants. When she went, they didn’t have anything available until Tuedsay. Mind you, it was only Saturday morning. We ate at the buffet/main dinning facility almost every night. 4-their top-shelf vodka was “Absolut” which was almost never available.. they will always say, a delivery should be here in about a half hour. Untrue! 5-The service at the buffet dining facility near the pool was horrible. I felt like no one wanted to work. We made several complaints and the office stated they tried to reach us but phone in our room. Why, we were almost never there! They didn’t try hard enough. Didn’t stop by, did t leave a note. Nothing. I have emailed the resort 3 x and I have not received a reply as of yet. I have a lot more today but I will leave it st this for now. I will pursue compensation. We paid a lot of money for a so-called 5 Star Resort that didn’t even come close to a 3 Star, sadly! Very dissapponting.

What's to Love

It's an all-inclusive on the all-awesome Bavaro Beach.

Lucy's Club for the kiddos - sand castle-making, face-painting, movies & more.

Chilling with collagen treatments and Thai massages at the stress-defeating spa.

The disco "DC-6" that's styled after an airplane & the DJ that spins tunes in a cockpit.

 

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

It's 30 minutes from the airport - your dreamy Dominican escape will kick in before you know it.

You can enjoy privileges at the other two Iberostars - Dominicana and Punta Cana.

Dressel Divers is right on the beach - get your scuba on.

There's a casino where you can hang with Lady Luck - don't keep her waiting.
