We went to Iberostar Grand Bavaro for our Honeymoon! When you first walk into the hotel, there is an amazing smell of perfume. The entire hotel was spotless. As you walk through the hotel, you see many employees working to keep every inch of the space clean. Our room was beautiful and cool from the A/C. We loved going in... More

Everything was great from the moment we landed until now. Raphael at the front desk was friendly and funny the start. Gomez... More

We were just there last week, best vacation ever! From the moment you walk into the resort, the staff make sure you have everything you could possibly want or need. Our room was very nice, the minibar was always stocked with food and snacks. The pool area was beautiful as was the beach, which is where we stayed most of... More

My wife and I have vacationed in Jamaica, Mexico, and this was our first time in Dominican. We've stayed at several Couples and Secrets resorts, but the Iberostar Grand Bavaro was by far the most elegant and beautiful. We had a couple of minor snags; i.e., no hot water in the tub, tv didn't work, but all was fixed quickly... More

My new wife and I left the Grand this past Saturday afternoon. The grounds, the rooms and the setting in general for this place are beautiful and well maintained. Our room was clean and the mini bar was restocked to our satisfaction daily. The pools were awesome with the exception of having to stake claim to covered areas by 7:30... More

Beautiful resort. The grounds were perfectly groomed, the staff was amazing, first hand customer service and they work long hours and always with a smile on their faces. Danny at the pool bar was great. The food was a little different, but good. Buffets were spectacular. The beach was relaxing and beautiful. Would highly recommend this resort.

This is a long review because Iberostar Grand Bavaro is a fabulous resort. Anything shorter would be inadequate to describe our perfect stay. It is a short drive from the airport. The hotel, grounds and beach are immaculate. The staff are nothing short of remarkable. This resort is now my top choice for getting away from everything. We booked the... More
