This resort was ok. My husband and I stayed for a week in January. If you're looking for a fancy, upscale hotel, this is not it, however the beach is beautiful, the food is good and the hotel is clean. I would recommend that you pay a little extra for a "superior" room - these rooms have just been renovated...

Great holidays! We spent 7 days at Ifa villas bavaro between 2 friends. Staff really nice & friendly. Nice room, not closed to the playa but really calm. Good food & beverage. Not perfect but really good for the price.

It is a big resort with gardens, 2 swimming pools, jacuzzys, every 3 min walk you will find a new bar. Employees are very nice and respectful. We didn't...

Resort was just okay. When we were there, there was a lot of construction on the site close to the pizzeria and pool. We tried not letting it get to us but at the end of the day, we were on vacation and did not want to hear all that noise. The staff were miserable. I know how hard they...
