Great value. Top notch facilities, clay tennis courts, free kayaks (when the ocean is not too rough), nice beach (albeit quite crowded), great food (lobsters almost everyday) and fast and friendly service. The all-inclusive package through Apple Vacations with a direct charter flight from Detroit to Punta Cana couldn't be beat. Choice either to do nothing around the many excellent... More

We chose the Grand based on TA reviews to celebrate our 43rd anniversary. We were not disappointed. Immaculate facility with excellent service. Never felt crowded. We are not "foodies" but we found the food to be very good. We ate at the Surf and Turf and Italian specialty restaurants. Only negative was the service at the Italian. Beech and pool... More

Unsure of where to stay, my travel agent recommended the Grand Bavaro. From the moment we checked in and were greeted with a welcome drink we knew this vacation was going to be special. It was my husband's birthday and they went all out too. Champagne in the room with fresh fruit and a small cake too. Plus a fresh... More

This is my second time staying at the Iberostar Grand Bavaro. It is rated as the best hotel in Punta Cana and one of the Best in the Carribean. The hotel itself is beautiful from the moment you check in to the moment you leave. Iberostar provides the little extra's not seen in many other hotels. About 2 weeks before... More

Wonderful service, very attentive staff. Beautiful beach and amenities by the pool. There were daily activities, a spa, a swim up bar (our favorite place!), and several restaurants. Only issue we had was food quality was not always consistent. The beef was excellent and the best choice, believe it or not. Fish was often overcooked.

We stayed in this hotel last year for our honeymoon and it was truly a wonderful experience. All staff were friendly and could not do enough for us. The food and drink were fabulous and the entire place felt really luxurious. We hope to return one day to enjoy another dream holiday.

I originally booked the Iberostar Grand Bavaro for 4 days as a Birthday present for my honey but after the first 2 days we decided that we had to extend our stay. The hotel is beautifully appointed, the room nicely decorated and very comfortable. Although the staff was very pleasant and friendly, there were a few people who really stood... More

People travelling to the Iberostar in Punta Cana should be advised there is a serious robbery problem on the golf course. There is a par three where you park your cart some distance from the green and there are big sand dunes obstructing the view of the cart from the green. Thieves rifle thru your golf bags and steal valuables.... More

The suite was extraordinary but I noticed that the day we forgot to leave a tip for room service our room was not as clean as the previous day's! Food all in all was delicious drinks extraordinary. Entertainment was fabulous and continuous. Looking for a good good time then this is place for you. And they also have various hotels... More
