#1 of 47 hotels in Bavaro
2021 Travelers' Choice Best of the Best
Only 20 minutes from the international airport of Punta Cana and located in one of the most emblematic beaches of the eastern region of the Dominican Republic we find the Iberostar Grand Hotel Bávaro. Majestic in its external appearance and in its decoration, it responds to a project devised by the prestigious Mexican architect Fernando Quirarte and inspired by Greco-Roman architecture. Its gardens and varied representation of native species found in a lush central lake, where it hosts a spectacular sailboat reproduced in real size and converted into one of the most original bars in the entire Caribbean, make this hotel a unique place. In addition, staying at our hotels will help take care of the planet thanks to our Wave of Change initiative: throughout 2020, all our rooms are free of single-use plastics, which will be replaced by other materials that are more environmentally friendly. This ambitious initiative will also be extended to the rest of the hotel areas. Together with its luxury facilities, an unbeatable environment, pioneering impulses, an exclusive attention also stands out: customers talk about the unforgettable experience of the stewardship service. Luxury, a service that is completed with a SPA overlooking the Caribbean Sea, careful with the environment, this hotel gathers everything to give its guests a personalized and unique stay.

I just wanted to take a moment to say how happy we were to choose the Grand Bavaro IberostarAdults as the choice for our vacation. The resort was immaculate, the food was great, the entertainment was phenomenal, the service was top notch and the local people at the resort were first class. But what made our stay even that much enjoyable was our butler Justo, he was from 1-10 a definite 10, he literally spoiled us, never letting us go without anything. Justo did an amazing job and for that we are forever grateful. Thanks Justo when we come back, we are definitely requesting you. Also to be acknowledged is our concierge Leydi she was beautiful and she likewise went far and beyond to make sure we were taken care of and for this we are forever grateful. Sincerely, Tim and Renato

When I arrived the property is beautiful (I was staying for 7 days). Everyone was very welcoming etc. checking in process wasn’t too bad I was checked in by yolman he explained that with the room you have a 600-800 credit to use at the spa etc but don’t fall for it as it’s nonsense (I’ll get into this later and how he switched up his description later in front of his manager Julio who are both the reason two stars were deducted. ) After checking in and being escorted to my room by my butler (Justo ), who FYI is one of the best there…very helpful and so attentive. My room was average and clean only issue was one of the shower knobs were broken and had to be replaced during our stay. However I went to check out the pool and beach. The pool area is nice not to many servers around though. That could use improvement. The beach however was horrible, ridiculous amounts of seaweed that they don’t seem to care to try to clean up as I’ve seen other resorts do. Nonetheless I never went back to the beach after the first day….I stayed at the pool. Food is pretty good the best restaurant they have is the surf and turf it’s delicious and my favorite servers during my whole trip tend to be there Samuel and Anna who are fabulous and made my birthday amazing. The entertainment people were great and funny shout out to Chris brown and excellente both funny guys lol. Now as stated previously the deduction stemmed from the false advertisement that was told to both me and my best friend as well as the two other rooms that were purchased by my parents and my sister and her boyfriend who all arrived 2 days after me . They advised upon checking in that if we sat through a presentation we would get a 150 spa credit. When approached about this separately they gave the excuse that we were family and only one credit could be given even though we were 3 separate rooms purchased. Yolman and his manager Julio continued and ask me and my best friend if we were a couple and we said no then they changed and said the credit is only for couples. So when my parents and my sister and her boyfriend inquired they told them they had to be a certain age. Which was ridiculous because if I’m old enough to be on an adults only resort and purchase a room then there should be no issue. They continuously changed the narrative and it became a bunch of lies which I was disgusted with. They didn’t try to make the situation correct no offer any type of accommodation nonetheless I was highly disappointed

We just got back from Iberostar Grand and we had a fantastic time. The resort is beautiful, the grounds are breath taking and our room had a great view. This resort is truly a small slice of paradise. It is the perfect size to get around easily with everything you could need. The food in all the restaurants was delicious and the service was top notch. All the staff was so friendly and helpful. Everyone there truly enjoyed their jobs and it showed. Our butlers Leo and Alberto were the best! They checked on us several times a day and truly helped make our vacation enjoying. This resort is definitely worth the extra money, you want for nothing when you're there. We will definitely be going back some day.

Beautiful resort with great amenities. Multiple pools and access to sister resorts too. The service by staff is impeccable. Our butler Justo was the ABSOLUTE best. He planned our agenda for the day from dinner reservations, to entertainment, or any special requests daily. He made sure everything was done. Restaurants were good too. Servers Ana. Samuel and Santos are the best too. They took care of us daily. The staff made our family trip great. They were dedicated to make sure you enjoy your vacation. Entertainment staffer "Chris Brown" was great in making sure my family stayed lactive, laughing and entertained daily thru our stay. Beach was clean except seaweed was at its peak season. Warning the resort credits and sales pitch are a scam to grab your attention and money Decline! Overall the resort was great! Would recommend!
