We have been to several resorts in Mexico and Punta Cana. Dreams, Secrets, Royalton, Breathless...the Grand was wonderful. The quietness of the rooms and the sleep quality were what impressed us the most. The staff is not phoney and are very much allowed to be themselves and to enjoy their work and the guests. We were never bothered by anyone.... More

My husband and I just returned from a 7 day stay at the Iberostar Grand Bavaro. The resort is great and the staff is wonderful. I can't say enough about the staff. They are all so very friendly and hard working. Luis Manuel was so accommodating to us. If you happen to experience a little problem, just find he. He... More

I visited the Iberostar Grand Bavaro with three female friends in their 70's who have travelled extensively world-wide and have high standards with regard to accommodations, dining and service. Two of us had previously been to an all-inclusive in Punta Cana and agreed that although we enjoyed our stays at two different properties, the food and drinks were very average.... More

3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

the weather is great. the property is very clean. food is pretty good, but it's humorous to think dominicans are specialists in french, japonese food, etc. The regular price includes a good selection of liquor, but the house wine is really not that good. I paid $56 for a bottle that would probably have been $25 at a restaurant in... More

This vacation was Wonderful, everything was perfect. The hotel has beautiful architecture and the grounds are maintained at the highest standards. The hotel staff were very polite and always ask if we needed anything. All of the restaurants were delightful to eat in and the food was appealing to the eyes as well. The pools and beach area is very... More

fantastic service and accommodations. equipped with your own butler and concierge service! ( only thing i would change is the way to get beach chairs and pool beds) have to get up really early in the morning and put a towel to reserve.

The resort is great, the staff very friendly, and the room was very nice. I only have one minor complaint, the wine that they supplied at all of the dinners was pretty bad. The optional wine list that was not included in the all inclusive price was also not the best and was completely over-priced ($50 and up). The beer... More

Trip Advisor honest reviews helped us prepare for our vacation at The Grand. So we got our cabanas at 6:30 - we could laze in the sun later to catch up on our sleep. Rosy waited on us and added her special touch to our drinks - great service with a smile. Thanks to Joel for taking care of us... More

For us, adults only is the way to go. No crying, temper tantrums or screaming (well,only from a few immature adults lol). We walked to the adjoining Iberostar family resorts which were quite nice - we've been there and done that. The Iberostar Grand Bavaro has a high end look, but was not stuffy. It's placed at the end of... More

This is the fourth all-inclusive hotel we have stayed in Punta Cana and this is the best by far. Food is excellent and the service superb. It is relaxed, all adult and very pleasant in all ways. We plan to return.
