Went with another couple for five not nearly long enough days to this beautiful resort. I simply can't say enough. We had a wonderful time. The staff here are amazing!! Oscar was our butler and he went above and beyond to make our stay extra special. The activity staff (boom boom, Ricardo, Elizabeth, rose, Armando, tommy, can't remember them all)... More

This is a copy of my letter sent to the team at the hotel - great resort but better Adult Only resorts out there at comparable prices. I have just returned from a 4 night stay at the Iberostar Grand Bavaro. We love the Iberostar resorts in Playa Paraiso. We have stayed at the IB Lindo/Maya approximately 7 times and... More

First visited this property back in 2011 and it was excellent. We recommend this property to people we know, when ever they are going to Caribbean. Went for a second time in our 18th anniversary, result was average not excellent. Property is still beautiful and the beaches are still overwhelming, but the service and the quality of the foods disappeared.... More

Had a great time traveled with another couple the staff was friendly and really made me feel very comfortable. The beach was great and was never crowded during our stay. there was a seaside market right next to the property filled with vendors a great place to shop for souvenirs.

I took my husband on a 4 night trip to the DR for his 40th birthday. After much research we decided to stay at the Grand Bavaro. It certainly did not disappoint. When we first checked in our room wasn't the greatest even though I paid for an upgrade. However, they quickly found us a much better room with beautiful... More

Let me preface this review by saying that my experience at the Iberostar was my first resort style trip. I believe, more than anything, I learned that I hate (and I do mean hate) resort travel. So, please take this review with that grain of salt in mind. While it may be a grand locale for those seeking a comfortable... More

We couldn't have asked for a better honeymoon destination! The resort was everything we wanted it to be. The staff goes above and beyond to make sure you have everything you want! The only minor negative was the food. It was good, but not excellent in our opinion. We will definitely return sometime in the future.

SO FAR VERY IMPRESSED: Went to the Iberostar Grand Collection and registered my choices for dinner reservations, pillows and snack/beverage choices. Quickly received confirmation! Will let you know if they honor my requests. Looking forward to a warm, wonderful and relaxing 25th anniversary with my husband!

Our Butler Jose was amazing. He helped us get everything we needed to make our stay memorable. We had room service almost everyday and they were always on time. Each restaurant had its own flair and was delicious. Can't say anything bad about the place at all. The daily activities near the pool were fun and the staff was entertaining.
