My family and I spent eight days at the Iberostar Grand in Punta Cana and it did not disappoint. From the moment you step into the resort you can see how well-maintained the grounds are. The staff is fantastic and always smiling, from the cooks to your private butler. For the most part, English is widely understood. But we found... More

Best all inclusive I have ever stayed in! My husband and I were treated like royalty :) We had a butler 24 hours a day! 24 hour room service! (great cheeseburgers!) The rapport that we built with the staff was great. This was not because of something that we did, it was because they went above and beyond to ensure... More

Went to cancun 2 weeks before staying here and boy was I suprised how much better Mexico was then this so called paradise. Terrible food generic drinks and not so personable staff made for a vacation that left much to be desired. Talked to some couples at the resort and we're getting the same feedback. Security is great be prepared... More

HIGHLIGHTS: 1) THE ROOM: spotless and spacious. They have an extra door within the entry to ensure less noise from the hall (although we didn’t notice much hall noise). Both the main room and bathroom have full windows to allow view from anywhere you are in the room. The door to the toilet (a tiny separate room within the bathroom)... More

Can't echo enough of the great reviews here. This place was absolutely magical and the only tragedy is that we have to leave after only one week of paradise. Our Butlers Victor and Alexander made our stay absolutely fabulous and all the staff were friendly. The full body couples massage was so worth it and all the meals were something... More

We stayed at Iberostar Grand Bavaro in July of this year, 2015 and LOVED it! From the moment we stepped out of our transportation onto the property we were greeted and treated first class. Our first impression of the court yard and lobby entrance was amazing and so welcoming, which continued on throughout our trip. Our room was gorgeous and... More

CHECK-IN Easy peasy. Took a few minutes but they'd like to sit down with you and explain everything right when you arrive. Of course you're excited and you want to get the vacation started but this process takes about 20 minutes. BUTLERS The butlers here are AMAZING! They'll take you to your rooms and get yours bags situation. When inside,... More
