My very first vacation outside of Toronto, Canada. This was a resort dedicated to family fun- activities of all kind well suited for all. Cute little casino on the resort. The beach- absolutely breath taking. A little bit of a walk from our beach chairs down to the water- but what do you expect with Dominican's longer stretch of sand.... More

We stayed at the Bavaro last week and had an incredible time. Courteous staff, always willing to accommodate, great maid service, and stellar bartenders that love their jobs. Special thanks to Ramon, Hugo, and Kelvin at the pool bar, they are first-rate. The food was good, large variety, and the grounds are kept pristine. The buffet food varies from just... More

We recently returned from a 10 day stay at the Bavaro. Overall we had a great time, food was good, rooms were clean and bright beach was large. On our first night there we unpacked and met friends for dinner, it was raining quite hard and upon returning to our room we walked into a completely flooded floor. We were... More

This was an all-inclusive holiday with my gf. The holiday is best for families and couples although we did see some hens and weddings.

If I could give this place four and a half stars I would. The grounds are kept immaculately. The rooms are very clean, although for a North American like me, the air conditioning could be a bit colder. There was a great ceiling fan over my king-size bed though so that helped greatly. The hotel staff was friendly and accommodating.... More
