    Amazing Adult Retreat

    We stayed in an ocean front room on the 3rd floor. It was breathtaking each morning. Our butlers Carlos and Caesar were wonderful. Our dance instructors, Babyface and Blackpearl were fun! The pool was beautiful and the waitstaff all around the resort were very nice, inviting, and took amazing care of us. Truly the vacation we needed to unplug and do almost nothing.

    This was an amazing experience the service was unmatched. They atmosphere was sensational. The food was divine. The workers made this place feel like home. They were so helpful and so kind they wanted to do anything and everything to make your stay magical. Our butler was Edward he was the best so friendly and did anything we asked. We were here for our honeymoon so he would have a romantic bath ready for us whenever we liked. They also would decorate the room with rose pedals everyday. I love it here 10/10. I will most definitely be back.

    Very Impressed

    We were extremely happy with our trip to Iberostar Grand Barvaro. We had visited the Grand Bavaro in Mexico, but had not been to Dominican in a number of years. We were very impressed! The hotel and grounds are beautiful. The food was excellent. We ate at the Surf and Turf and Italian, but really loved to be able to sit outside at the buffet and the food was always excellent. We never had trouble finding chairs on the beach. The staff were all wonderful, but special thanks to our Butler Charli. He was extremely helpful but never intrusive. For our 20 year anniversary he had our room decorated, along with a bubble bath and champagne. Thanks! Tobias was so attentive bringing us drinks on the beach and he worked so hard to be fast and efficient. Tomas at the lobby bar made most excellent fancy drinks. Overall we had a great holiday and will definitely return.

    Wedding of my dreams!

    Our third trip to the Iberostar Grand Bavaro did not disappoint! Barefoot on the beach was our dream, and it was far exceeded by the staff at IBG showing our incredible friends and family the experience that made the day/week the best trip of a lifetime. Special thanks to Darwin and Dowel who made our wedding suites fit for kings and queens. Yo Cardi B, Chris Brown and the entertainment staff who made every day more than sitting pool side soaking up the alcohol and sunshine with dance lessons and games! Ruth our wedding planner was phenomenal and such a sweet heart. Can’t forget our favorite pool bartender Ery and Marlon the pool side server who also made our romantic dinner as special as our wedding. The list goes on and on about who we can thank for providing the experience we were hoping for for our family and friends. One thing is for sure, we will be back as Iberostar Grand Bavaro has a special place in our hearts forever.

    Beautiful resort and great staff

    Beautiful spacious rooms. Our butler service from Staling was fantastic. He took care of all our requests and was always there with humor, a smile and professionalism. The pools were beautiful with lots of available seating, plenty of towels, activities and staff/bar service. Oceanfront seating and shade plentiful as well. Overall restaurants were good and some were great. Loved the fresh grill service poolside with salmon, shrimp and lots of other cook to order choices. Overall resort staff a 10 plus.
