Travelled with wife, daughter, son in law and two granddaughters aged 9 &7. Perfect place for all. Not only was the service great but the staff was always smiling and friendly as well as accomodatiing. Kids program and staff was the absolute best. Lot's to do for the kids while we were in the pool or on the beach. But kids were with us most of the time in the pool.
Food was very good at the buffet. Specialty dining was very good.

Room Tip: Ask for room half way to beach and buffet. Easy walk.

A last minute 2 week getaway in April for our family ( mother-in-law, brother-in-law, my husband, three year old son and myself) brought us to Iberostar Bavaro upon recomendation from our travel agent. We were a little hesitant after reading some reviews on trip advisor but decided to take a chance. Are we ever glad we went to this resort. What an absolutely amazing place. Check in with Henri and Iris was flawless-spoke english perfectly,, luggage was brought inside our rooms in the blink of an eye, cleaning service was fabulous and trustworthy (I accidentally left my jewellry/money on the night table twice and it was not touched) grounds keepers work round the clock, beach super clean and plenty of shade for everyone, pool area for kids with slides and water falls, animation all day long and the amazing night shows, the food (OMG the food), such a large variety of excellent quality in unending quantities (rib steaks, chicken, pork, fish, duck, lobster, shrimp, brochettes, cheeses of all kinds, fruits (whole, cut or whipped into a smoothie, salads, nuts, breads, smoked salmon, eggs(Boiled, poached, fried, scrambled) pizzas, pastas, stews, soups, deserts, hams, jams, honey, peanut butter,ice cream , fajitas.......you get the picture. The chefs are very much present and mingle with the guests requesting feed back of comments/suggestions. The hard working waiters always seem to be there morning, noon and night (Mariel, Augusta, eddy, wanda , anna, wilson (just to name a few) with a genuine welcoming smile. Finally the management. Never have I seen managemt more present amongst the guests ! Not just at the reception. Mr Grubanov was very present throughout the entire resort with his assistant at the pool, on the beach, in the restaurants, overseeing all with his own eyes and took the time to speak with and acknowledge his guests requesting feedback, comments, if all was ok. This was not your usual public relations bid, he was hands on, present and sincere.
Summary-HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FAMILY RESORT, definitely will be our destination of choice for Punta Cana

We had a great time at the Iberostar hotel, enjoying the free flowing drinks, an abundance of food and a lovely relaxing atmosphere. OK so its rated as a 5 star hotel, and whilst its not the height of luxury, it is still very nice and well priced, worth every penny in my opinion and it was everything I expected and a whole lot more.

Rooms:
The rooms a big and clean, with large beds, well stocked mini bar, luxury bathroom with a massive shower and a nice balcony area to relax on. The whole resort is very clean, and wherever you turn you will see people cleaning up.

Food and drink:
Varied and plentiful, if you cant find anything you like to eat here then you really are just too fussy! The speciality restaurants were OK, I felt they were trying to hard and to be honest I actually preferred the buffet to them. The buffet was good with a different theme each night, Dominicana night was the best!, there was freshly prepared meat, fish and the dish of the night as well as all the usual favourites, (pizza, chips etc). Lots of fresh exotic fruit on offer which was very tasty! Most nights we ate at the buffet and really enjoyed our food, it is big enough to cater for whatever mood you are in. We are late sleepers so like the late breakfast that was offered by the pool. Most lunches we ate from the BBQ area by the pool, and found the food to be great. Make sure you dont miss any of the beach parties with fresh paella, as the paella was outstanding with the freshest seafood I have ever tasted! Drinks are free flowing and can be made as strong as you like. Pretty much everything is made with rum although they have most alcohol available, make sure you try the Coco Locos, they are delicious. There is generally a waitress service to wherever you are sitting in the hotel, be in the hotel lobby, sunbed or restaurant, the service was great and you never felt like you were expected to tip.

Entertainment/Activities:
The entertainment team here work tirelessly hard to make sure everyone has a good time, working from morning to night on very little pay they always have a big smile on their faces and do their absolute best to make sure everyone is having a good time. The activities on offer through the day are varied so should appeal to a wide variety of people and if you dont want to get involved thats fine they wont pester you. Evening shows are your standard cheesy resort fair, but alot of effort goes into them and they always help put a smile on your face after a nice relaxing day in the sun.

The beach:
The beach is beautiful, it stretches for miles and has wonderfully soft sand. There are a few vendors down the beach, who will try and sell you their goods and can be haggled with on price. There are free watersports included which is a nice touch, and this located on the beach.

Overall we had a great time, the staff work their socks off to ensure you have a good time, the food is great and the drinks are non stop, plus you are in the gorgeous Caribbean, whats not to like? I would definitely come back to the Iberostar Bavaro.

This was the first time my wife and I traveled to the Dominican Republic in April 2013. Some friends of ours who have been at this resort for the past several years had suggested that we go here. Absolutely one of the best vacations ever. The people, the food and the atmosphere were 1st class. We stayed for 7 nights and wished we would have stayed longer. The rooms at the Bavaro made it feel very private and quiet. The buffet was excellent every day and night and was impressed with the quality and variety. They had tons of activities going on all day and night which made it very enjoyable. The people made you feel welcome and part of them. My wife and I had a very romantic getaway and couldn't have asked for anything else...well maybe stay a couple more nights.
