This trip was my first experience of an All-Inclusive holiday, and my first (and probably last) time travelling with Thomas Cook. Having read quite a few of the reviews here, I was fairly apprehensive about staying at IFA Villas Bavaro, but in all honesty my stay wasn't that bad. Check in was an experience - pretty much forget the British...

I generally have a look at the reviews before I book but I'm pretty well travelled and I've come to realise you can't please everyone all the time and usually wherever it is I have chosen for my holidays in the past I've made up my own mind and usually haven't gone far wrong until now. I'm far from fussy...

We went for a long weekend during Thanksgiving and flew frontier. Firsts things first you get what you pay for by flying frontier. . My advice when you arrive at your destination try to find a porter to handle you luggage. Chances are the porter has an "in" and can help you bypass the long lines for immigration & customs....

Just arrived home from this building site and will never return! The staff (apart from one or two) were rude and showed a distinct lack of interest in anyone that wasn't of Latin American descent. The drinks waiters and waitresses especially at the pizza bar were excellent at removing full glasses but avoided delivering fresh ones. If you tried to...

Stayed at IFA Villas Bavaro Resort for two weeks in Nov. 2016. I would say that this Resort is on its way to becoming a 4 to 4.5 star resort. A lot of work is being done to fix it up and with what I saw they will be something BIG. Anyway, there is a lot of construction and that...

We were disappointed to find half of the resort under renovations. We had checked reviews and the website and they said renovations were being done to balconies but that was not the case at all. Buildings were under complete renovations as well as the other pool and several other buildings which we believed were restaurants. Once the renovations are done...
