Iberostar Bavaro

We would not recommend this resort for a couple of reasons. When we arrived (after making the reservation about 8 months in advance and paid in full), they didn't have a room for our first night. We travel with friends and they put us in an adjoined room in the kids section of the resort. The room itself was nice but we had to move out of it the next day and into another room. The hotel took care of moving our luggage to the new room so that was not a hassle. The hassle was making a reservation so far in advance and then not having a permanent room upon arrival - living out of a suitcase for 24 hours after the long flight and the customs hassle. The new room, which they said had been renovated but that just meant painted was about the same except, the bathroom was very small - to get to the toilet, you had to squeeze between the shower and a wall at the back of the tub. Would rather have stayed in the old room. The cleaning service was inconsistent in what they left in the room. Some days there would be wash cloths, some days none. Some days they would fill the fridge, some they wouldn't. Some they turned down the bed, others not. There was no ice machine within walking distance. There was one right outside our door but it didn't work while we were there. The hotel staff used golf carts to get around and transport patrons. Whenever you walked somewhere (unless it was on the beach) you would have to move off the sidewalk to let multiple vehicles pass. Some didn't care how fast they went. The themed restaurants were pretty good with a good selection however the buffets were not. They were the same food over and over. Not alot of variety. Other resorts we have visited have themed nights on their buffets, maybe that would help. The entire resort needs to be revamped - the pools are old and cracking, the sidewalks have cracks and holes. The grounds are beautiful and well kept. We were told that the owner built a mansion just north of the resort on the property. If that is true, he should take a walk through his flagship property. He would be disappointed.

Friendliest Staff

From the moment we arrived and checked in we were greeted by Jose at the front desk who was excellent . We then proceeded to make our restaurant reservations with Willy who was also very helpful. Resort was very clean, beach and pool were immaculate but most of all Eisy was the BEST!!! He made sure we were entertained at all times and made sure we knew about all the activities going on. I would definitely go back.

Another Fantastic Cheap Caribbean Vacation

This is our second Punta Cana vacation booked through Cheap Caribbean and once again just fantastic. Booking is simple, communication is clear, and resort ratings are true. Iberostar Bavaro exceeded our expectations. Staff was exceptional and always ready to help and go the extra mile. Plenty of huts and chairs on the beach, beach very clean. Pool is big enough for all. Kids play area is far enough from the pool bar area you can enjoy cocktails without the kids splashing you. And be sure to say "hola" to Rosalia, the best bartender you can find. Food: Buffet has something for all, restaurants were all good. Highly recommend the Hibachi and Mexican restaurants. Most important, remember peoples tastes are different. Amstar does an great job transporting vacationers and offering excursions. We only did the "swim with sharks and stingrays, well worth the money. Overall, we love Punta Cana, will book again with Cheap Caribbean, recommend to friends/family, 5-STAR ACROSS THE BOARD.

Very Clean and Nice Resport

This was my first ever all-inclusive vacation so I was a little wary but everything turned out great. Booking with cheapcarribbean.com was smooth too. The resort is maintained really well. Very clean and very spacious. The rooms are nice because there's a little sitting area with couches and a desk and also a patio with a couch and table. There was a leak in our room and someone came to fix it within 5 minutes. The pool was mostly used by families with little kids. Parents would reserve their chairs at 6am. The beach was amazing with a bunch of cabanas for shade. It's a very short walk from the resort pool and has white sand and clear water. The food was surprisingly good. I have a sensitive stomach and my stomach never hurt once. The nightly entertainment was a hit or miss. There was a Michael Jackson impersonator while we were there and then a dance competition and a fire show. Some of the others weren't as great. There are bars open at all times. The drinks are delicious but not strong at all. Not sure if the alcohol is watered down or what. The only thing I wish the resort had was temperature control in the rooms. There's not thermostat so you can't make it colder, but there is a ceiling fan. The gym is super nice like brand new equipment. We didn't make it to any of the classes because the schedule isn't laid out well. We tried go to beach yoga but couldn't find it.

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.
