Family vacation

We had a group of 14 people come to Iberostar Bavaro for a week. The service was excellent. Margarito and Michael in the lobby buffet were awesome. We had someone with a nut allergy, and Orlando helped us! There aren’t many options for people with nut allergies, as they don’t really understand the concept of cross contamination. The Japanese restaurant was our favorite. With regards to the water, there was a lot of seaweed in the ocean. A truck came by and cleaned it off the shore several times a day, but it’s still in the water. The pool is only open until 7pm & so is the gym, so the only thing to do at night that’s included is entertainment in the theater. Or disco if you stay up for when it opens. The rooms are nice, but we had a several bugs in our bathroom. We purchased a day excursion to Samana through a salesman on the beach. He told us what we wanted to hear so we would buy it. It was a whole lot of traveling, and we expected a better experience. Overall, we had a good time and the resort is nice.

Nice Family Trip

The trip did not start off very well when I turned down the room upgrade, and because of that, the receptionist changed our room to the worst room possible. After seeing that the resort was not full, I decided to bring my issue to the manager. He was very accommodating and moved us to a villa right by the pool. Aside from this, everything else was great. The staff was very kind and always there to serve you. The food was excellent….loved the Japanese Restaurant. The activities and nighttime shows were a lot of fun and on Saturday we had a great night dancing at the nightclub. My husband and son loved the gym, excellent equipment and very modernized. The pool and beach area was beautiful with more than enough seating and shaded areas. I would recommend this to other families.

Not impressed

Not accommodating. Took four days to get a bottle of water in the mini fridge. Could not get the reservations we wanted. Air conditioner at the resort broke for two days. Water was coming through the ceiling in our room. Staff at front desk was rude. Staff in restaurants overall were very nice.

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.
