My girlfriend and I both had an excellent time at the Iberostar Grand Bavaro. The resort itself is beautiful and all of the amenities were outstanding. The entire staff were very kind throughout our trip and went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable.

Hotel's Favourite
This is our first time at those hotel. And we want to say that everything is wonderful. We enjoy our big, clean, and stylish room. The resort provides a variety of delicious and great food. All the dishes are beautifuly served. The waiters are lovely, friendly and funny, I have a feeling that I came to visit old friends. Special many thanks to the manager Heriberto. He helps us at every stage. Even with a restaurant reservation. And of course thanks to Maria from the beach bar. Her smile and consistently good mood make our vacation even more enjoyable. Of the minuses - - no slippers in the room - the smells from Italian restaurant were way to strong. Therefore, we could use the balcony

The hotel, its surroundings, the sea, the employees made the little vacation enjoyable. I was pleasantly impressed by Ricky's professionalism, who did his best to make everything ok. You can enjoy the best beef steak at Steak House, prepared by master chef Juan Felix. Thank you all!

This was my family’s and mine first time in the DR. We loved it, overall a great family vacation. We stayed in the Bavaro Suites, and we were attended by the best staff. The beach was beautiful, we were at the star prestige side because we are members. Isbanel was very kind and took care of me at the buffets, Excellent service. At the beach, our server Josue went above and beyond to meet our needs. He made sure our beds were clean, we had towels, drinks and food at all times and was overall very friendly and attentive. Anything we could want. The pool side bars were amazing as well, including their bartenders, specifically Ernesto. He was very welcoming, friendly and made the best drinks. When it was time for the night shows, we always looked forward to seeing our bartender Lady who made sure we were always well taken care of. Thank you all for your excellent service! My family and I will definitely be back.

We just returned from our trip to Iberostar Dominicana. It is joined with Iberostar Punta Cana so there are many shared areas including the pool, theater, some restaurants and such. I like to provide in depth honest reviews so if you're okay reading, I would read this review. Overall, we had a very enjoyable stay. I cannot touch on language barrier as I speak Spanish so I generally don't have the same difficulty as maybe others who don't. My husband does not speak Spanish and he was able to easily communicate without me. We took our two young children with us and the resort is loaded with kids. You can go as only adults of course, but there are a ton of families. Majority of guests are either locals (on weekends) or from surrounding Spanish-speaking countries. The food was great! I did overhear other guests that arrived say it wasn't great, BUT I feel like when you're traveling you learn tips and tricks and you have to know what you're getting yourself into. We did not have any repetitive meals. I agree with other reviewers that certain restaurants have areas to improve as far as meals. It's not that they weren't enjoyable, we are just used to the a la cartes being way above buffet food. We found ALL the food to be delicious and there was ALWAYS something. By the pool there is a snack bar that is connected to a buffet. The snack bar generally offers hamburgers and hot dogs. The buffet portion opens a bit later and has more selection. The A/C is not like we have experiences at other resorts, the room gets very hot, especially at night. Midway through our visit our clothes started to smell. We are used to the humidity your clothes experience as we are avid travellers but this one was kind of tough. I wish i would have just known to bring a spray to freshen them up. The beach is absolutely gorgeous. Out of all the visits to DR this was by far our favourite view and experience of the beach. There is no swim up bar so anytime you want a drink you do have to get out of the pool and stand in line. The resort has 2 pools that are side by side with an additional small third pool meant for young children. They get pretty deep so you will find a lot of the kids and parents hang by certain parts where it is extremely shallow. The animation team isn't super pushy which is nice and they run events both by the beach and pool but it isn't constant. You will find a lot more involvement from them on the weekends when there is far more people staying at the resort. The shows were nice, my eldest daughter is only 4 and the animation team was SO incredibly sweet with her - particularly Skinny and Scooby. Mignolia at the higüey buffet is amazing, she will take such great care of you. The buffet has views of turtles, flamingos and other birds, our kids LOVED it. A staff member who cuts the gardens will offer coconuts, we tipped $1 USD per coconut. They have a small shopping plaza and the gym is very nice as well. The resort does have elevators to get to the rooms which was nice for us as we had a stroller. They have water refill and ice machine stations located throughout the hotel and by the rooms so you can refill your water. They provide you with reusable glass bottles so I would recommend bringing your own reusable bottle. Showers are nice as well but you have to turn off the water as you wash your hair/body as the water can begin to seep into the rest of the bathroom. We used rolled towels to help with that. We had a WONDERFUL time as a family. If you have booked this resort, you will definitely enjoy yourself!

Is a very good hotel with good food and beverages, is not premium if you want premium it has extra cost,? The spa is really good, excellent foot massage! The gourmet restaurant has a good selection, but the mexican one has room to improve, but the tequila cake is absolutely great!, so where the margaritas. Staff is very friendly, shout out to Francisco!! You are the man! Room was hot at night

I would give several areas 5 stars and others only a 3. Positives: -Beautiful grounds immaculately kept -Rooms spacious and very clean. There were 3 of us and they added an extra bed so we would all have our own -Beach was amazing-they cleaned the seaweed daily -Waiters/waitresses at the buffet were awesome. Hamlet saw us coming, got a table ready for us and made sure all our needs were met. He and the other staff were great! -Best part was the entertainment team! Cafe, Skinny, Yeezy, Debora, Scoobie and Lenny were amazing! Friendly, kept us laughing, led a variety of daily activities-basically made our trip! Nightly events/shows were also very good Cons: -Biggest complaint was the food which was mediocre at best. Buffet was never hot, fair selection and it was very difficult to get a reservation at one of the specialty restaurants. The Italian one was definitely nothing special with a very limited menu -Staff at the bars outside were not friendly-rarely smiled. (The one by the stage for the night time shows had great staff though!) -Shower drained very slowly-often had to turn the water off in the middle of the shower to let it drain so it wouldn't over flow

Pools were nice,some staff was friendly but the food was bad and booking a la carte restaurant was horrible. I believe all the of liqueur they serve are fake as they would fill half of cup with rum and still seems there is no alcohol? Settled with champagne. I have been to many resorts and this is one of the worst and only gave it 2 but 100% will never go to an Iberostar again. Friday - check in. No welcoming information. Advised covid test was part of our package. No sit down dining was available. Force to go to the Buffett with flies and birds. Health department needs to be called. Food was horrible! Only allow 2 sit down and they were both not good. Got to our room and it smelled bad! Mildew and mold. Went back to front desk and told them to have someone check it out because that not safe or healthy. Received another room and it was better. So we thought. Went to take a shower, water would not drain. It was water everywhere. Told the front desk who alerted the people to come. No one came. Saturday- Not hot water. Couldn’t take a shower and I refused to take a freezing one. Room keys weren’t not working throughout the entire time. Has to keep getting new keys. Sunday - covid testing. Most of the staff doesn’t know anything and it confuses the guest over and over. Dinner at the restaurant they tried to charge us for the same drinks we have been getting. It’s all inclusive I only want those drinks. The guests in front of us got the same mimosas and it was no issues. They advised it’s part of the package. I can see we are not welcome here. They have a spa. If you do the sauna and pool only, no robe only a towel. Not to friendly here.

January into February for 3 weeks was our 17th time staying at the Iberostar Dominicana so obviously we love it there. The main reason we go back again & again is the people! The waitresses & waiters at the buffets, serving drinks & at the specialty restaurants, the bartenders, landscapers & housekeeping staff are all excellent. They go out of their way to ensure you feel welcome as if you are their family & will do everything they can to fulfill your requests. The Animation Team are great, friendly, amusing & entertaining as well as professional. A special shout out to their lovely bosses Maria & Evelyn & to Dewin, Amara, Michael & Naomi! The property is very clean, the beautiful tropical landscaping is kept meticulous & our room was also very clean. The food is very good at the buffets with plenty of variety. If you walk around & see what’s available you’ll always find something you like. Of the specialty restaurants I would highly recommend the Oriental (sister hotel, IberostarPunta Cana) & the French Gourmet (Iberostar Dominicana) The food was delicious & the service excellent. Drinks are always great. Last but certainly not least is the gorgeous beach (which is kept clean of seaweed, they go by with their equipment twice a day raking it up) & that beautiful ocean. I give this property an A+ & cannot wait to go back!🥰
