    Excellent Experience with our family

    We are a family of 3 with a 5 year old daughter. We traveled from the US in November over the Thanksgiving holiday. We did not book the Coral level but were gifted an upgrade at check in. I wasn't sure when booking that the extra amenities of Coral level were worth the extra cost, but in hindsight I definitely would say it is 100% worth the extra money. The beach pool, extra buffet/restaurants and beach beds were great, and the food was excellent for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We were able to book a la carte restaurants for every night of our 7 night stay with the Coral upgrade. There were also additional festivals/shows available at the Coral area that were not offered for the Selection Bavaro guests. It was nice for our daughter to be able to swim in all of the different pools to have a variety of things to keep her occupied! She also loved the foam party at the Coral pool. If we return to this resort, I would definitely pay the extra money to stay at Coral level again. The room was nice and comfortable. No issues with bugs or air conditioning during our entire stay (this was something I was concerned about after reading several negative reviews). We were actually cold some nights and turned the ac off! With all that being said, the non Coral level areas/activities were also excellent! The lunch buffet/snack bar at selection pool were good, especially if you ate there close to open time when the food was freshest. We enjoyed all of the A la carte restaurants, particularly the Steakhouse (Bravo) and Japanese restaurant (Kabuki). El Faro and Salt and Soul at the Coral level were also great. The beach is one of the best beaches I’ve seen, and have been to several in Mexico, Jamaica, Florida, etc. There was very little seaweed during our entire stay, and it was cleaned every morning. The water was beautiful blue and sand super soft. The beach went on for miles and was great for long walks. Water is warm and easy to swim in. We each got a massage at the Spa which was excellent, and the amenities there are also great. We could not get our daughter to participate in the Star Camp activities, I think because most of the kids spoke Spanish so she was a little scared of not being able to communicate, so we didn't push it. However it seemed like the kids who participated had a great time. The kid shows were entertaining for her in the evenings. We experienced very few negatives, however feel like a couple of things are useful to know: Many of the main shows started late for us as a family with a young child. We would have liked to see some of the singers and the karaoke, however they didn't start some nights until after 10pm which was too late for us after a long day at the beach/pool. It was also difficult to know when the Coral level shows started or what was happening at the Coral level because these activities did not show up on the app. We stayed up late to watch the fire show one night, but it must have been cancelled or changed with no notice because it didn't end up happening. It would be nice to have some more communication on the app to know what is going on. This is really the only negative issue I can think of. Everything else was great! If we return to Punta Cana, I would definitely stay here again.

    Coral Level at Iberostar Selection Bavaro

    Coral Level at Iberostar Selection Bavaro 10 nights October 2023 Check in Fairly smooth, some confusion on our room and booking, but it was resolved to our satisfaction. There is a small café next to reception, that was very nice, a cold beverage and snack got our holiday started. Our concierge, Raphael, introduced himself to us at this time. He was extremely helpful and pleasant throughout our stay. Thank you Raphael! Room Our room was in front of the infinity pool, ground floor. The room was nice, bathroom remodeled. It was a little warm, when asked, the thermostat was adjusted (we could not set it below 20c). there was a day that a strong suage smell was in the room. But only 1 day. The location was great, we just stepped up to the pool and there we were. Bed was very comfortable. Work space was a little cramped, but we were there for vacation 😊 Food Everywhere we ate there was something for our pallet. It might not be for everybody, but we personally were not disappointed. El Faro We had breakfast there every day, enough selection for us. Eggs to order was a little slow ☹ Dinner there was good, we ate twice, good selection. Brave (steakhouse) The food was good, nothing that did not meet our expectations. The restaurant manager was awesome, I apologize, I did not get his name, but as far a customer service goes, he brought it! La Couple Very quaint restaurant, the food did not disappoint, we would have gone there more if there was time. Bar/entertainment The bar at El Faro was great, staff was always helpful and courteous. The best bar tender in the resort was primarily there, Ishmeal (he was also at Brave during dinner). Lots of activities outside the restaurant/bar. The fire dancers were excellent! Service Everyone on staff we encountered gave us the impression that they wanted our vacation to be nice and worked towards that goal. That said, knowing Spanish would be helpful as some of the staff had problems with English, nothing too big just language barriers…. Beach This beach was beautiful, we think the only beach that could compete with Bavaro is Eagle beach in Aruba. We walked miles and miles of the beach fantastic!
