Our second visit to the Iberostar Grand Bavarro (January 2015 was our first). Very relaxing, quiet, excellent service, great food, and what struck me most was the 10 PM shows and how polished they were compared to 2015. Very enjoyable, and amazing how the same cast and crew can adapt nightly to a different 60 minute performance. A must see...

Two complaints which is a problem across the industry is the patrons who wake at dawn and reserve the loungers up only to utilize for little if no time. Pool staff should seat people and the remove items if left for hours. Other is - can you heat the pool? It's frigid in January. The property is beautiful and staff...

First Impressions The property was very beautiful and well manicured, However the staff at the front desk were not very friendly and we were immediately confronted with the language barrier being English speaking. This would be a theme that would continue for entire 7 day stay. I lived and worked in Puerto Rico for 3 years, and at hotels there...

What can I say about the Iberostar Grand Bavaro that hasn't already been stated... It truly is the epitome of relaxation and luxury. We rented a swim-up suite, and while the pool did leave a little something to be desired (wish it connected with the main pool, and/or wish it was heated) the accommodations are fantastic, and the staff is...

The food did not disappoint--we feasted...
