My wife and I and two other couples traveled to this resort in December 2014. It wasn't our first type to Punta Cana nor to the Iberostar complex however our first time to the Grand. We didn't travel with our children so we chose the Grand being Adult only. It was amazing!!! We were very impressed. First the check in... More

Our second trip to an Iberostar Grand Resort and our experience was a "WOW", very impressive. The staff here are friendly, fun and take the time to make sure you are well taken care of at all times. From the butler service (thanks Justo and Angel), restaurant staff (Maribel-you are an outstanding customer service provider) to Tommy the cigar guy,... More

Never did an all-inclusive before but have done many other advantures in the world. Iberostar Grand came highly recommended and they did not disappoint. Great food, drinks, entertainment and service. One thing I would suggest is if you decide on sailing, to book the training and your first session the first day you're there. That's because you'll want to go... More

Breathtaking grounds and a beach to die for! Warm, friendly, helpful staff who make a real effort to attend to your every need. Our butlers, Francisco and Jonathan, and Yudith. our housekeeper, were wonderful. Lots of activities, but large enough in size to easily find a quiet place to simply enjoy the beauty of the surroundings. Food at the specialty... More

A lot and I mean a LOT of very personable and friendly people bending over backwards to make sure everything was enjoyable. The resort was pristine, the service was excellent and the restaurants were all 5 star in our book. We knew we were coming back after day one.

Walking into this resort, you instantly feel relaxed. The property has a spacious, luxurious feel with beautiful views all around. Even though the resort was busy during our stay, we never felt crowded. We were able to lounge in the comfortable cabana by the pool and under the shade of an umbrella with a beautiful view, on the beach. The... More

We recently completed at 5-day stay at Iberostar Grand Hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our entire stay. The staff was very accommodating with all our requests, including a bottle of wine each evening and specialty beers in our room. We chose the beach over the pool for some quiet time and waiters were always available to order drinks or bottled water.... More

This review is a comparison of the Iberostar Grand hotels in Punta Cana (Grand Bavaro), Montego Bay (Grand Rose Hall) and the Mayan Riviera (Grand Paraiso), for those looking to try other places. My wife and I (mid 50’s) have been to all three within the last 36 months. I will not give pros and cons, but instead try and... More

OK I lied. There is a ship but it's sitting in the middle of the resort and it contains a bar/ disco which I visited once. I'm not much of a dancer and the disco wasn't the highlight of the resort. What really makes this place the best is the staff. From check in to check out the staff takes... More

Very nice hotel with good service and nice beach. The food was not very good because they dont use good quality and fresh food. A lot of semifinished product has been used and offered as delicates. Meals from seafood was sometimes uneatable. Majority of guest were americans and everything was focused on their needs (type of food, tips, during dinner... More
