Food choices were fantastic and food was very tasty. Service was excellent. Everyone was very polite and attended to your every need. Rooms were attended to twice a day. Shows were entertaining. I will return.

Well, now when all dust settled, I can share my thoughts..We were visiting with my parents having my mom 75th Birthday ( and mine as well))). So we tried to make this vacation very memorable...And we did !! Most of the credit goes to hotel itself...Design and territory shows its class ( 5+). Food choice is very good..Wine collection is...

My boyfriend and I just got back from a 5 day 4 night stay at Grand. Overall we had a really great, fun time. From the pools, to the beaches and the activities/games they have around the hotel, it was really nice. Our room was kept very clean; I swear the room was cleaned at least 4 times a day.... More

Overall we had a pleasant stay at the Grand Bavaro, though it is somewhat over rated. The guests in the room above us flooded their Jacuzzi at 3am in the morning, (they fell asleep) flooding our bathroom, (see picture) It happened again the next night, the then manageress finally agreed to move us, not a word of apology. We booked... More

Adults Only Resort. Amazing service. You get a butler service who will make sure you have everything you need, schedules your dinners, fills your fridge with whatever you want to drink. There are 2 turn down services. One after you wake up and another after you step out for dinner. We had them fill us a bath with rose petals... More

My stay at this resort was absolutely amazing, it was by far the best time ever, and the people who worked there were extremely polite and pleasant. One employee that stood out most as they called her there in DR was "La Piña Colada" she was fun and made my stay with my friends there a better time! People like... More

Vacation 8/12-8/19 of 2014 This resort was absolutely marvelous, almost perfect. What follows is a detailed review for those who care to read it! The resort is on the small side for an all-inclusive, which is a plus. It really feels more like a "boutique" hotel. It's not a huge walk everywhere like some others are. It has a beautiful,... More

Sorry, a little overdue - but this place was so lovely! The service was over the top in the sense of sheer numbers, attitudes, and speed (except for the woman guarding the towel hut at the pool, who must have had issues as a child, lol). Every room was gorgeous, as was every view - pool, beach, they are all... More
