We even went down the road to visit another few resorts similar to this (like Divi), and found that we appreciated our resort that much more after... More

The IFA Villas Bavaro was a wonderful resort. Everything was great except for the rooms. Carlos Acevedo who works in Guest services assisted us with our room issues. His attentiveness, professionalism and customer service was really superb. He made sure our room issues were a top priority and was able to get us switched to a more better suited room.... More
