Best place in Punta Cana
We had a fantastic time at iberostar grand Bavaro. The service and food is top notch. Our butler Darlyn was extremely helpful and kind. He took care of our every need and spoiled us. The entertainment staff namely black cloud and angel kept us busy and were so much fun. Everyone from pool staff servers bartenders from desk washroom attendants are all very kind and wonderful. I would go back for sure
Other than the food, great place!
Hello, my wife and I stayed at this resort from January 14-21st, 2023. We stayed in one of the rooms that had a semi-private swim up pool to our back porch. We worked out each day, enjoyed the spa and decided between the pool or beach based on availability. Butler Danilo was FANTASTIC! He was so attentive, helpful and thoughtful about our stay - if we would be willing to return, we would request his floor. Weather was great. Service was great. Hotel amenities and location were great. The food sucked. (sadly, we chose this place as it looked very accommodating for food preferences) The only real knock on this place was the food. Consistently food labels were incorrect in the buffet, the menus at each of the restaurant were not correct either and after digging in the labeling it was not representative of the actual ingredients. I came home with a bacterial infection. It would also be helpful if individual dishes in the buffet have their own serving utensils as cross contamination between dishes made it difficult to eat things for fear of allergic reaction or food limitations. I would characterize their food as "jacks of all trades and masters of none" - these were not quality food products and the cooking of them was pretty average. If the food has been better 10/10 .... including the food 6/10. It would also have been helpful to better understand tipping etiquette at the beginning of our stay - like if you hand a tip v leave it on the table and who it goes to - not a big deal but we might have done things differently.
My husband and I were at this beautiful resort for a week. We are actually leaving today, and I couldn't wait to rave about this place! The rooms are beautiful, clean and comfortable. The beach is AMAZING. The staff is wonderful and the food is delicious. I have not one complaint about anything. Our butlers Cesar and Biz made our stay over the top. They were wonderful. Always checking in on us to see if we needed anything and leaving surprises in our room. We couldn't ask for more. Everything is top notch. We will definitely be back next year and I can't wait!
Amazing honeymoon experience!
This is our first trip as a newly wed couple and we couldn't have picked a better place! The staff are super friendly and fun. Our butlers, Edward and Edwardo, weren't used much by us but they were always there for us with whatever we needed! (like getting softer pillows for the wife XD). There is an amazing selection of food and drinks here and the upkeep to the property and rooms is absolutely incredible! We loved how the beach was never crowded at all times of the day. Walking down the shore line and visiting the other resorts you clearly see that you get what you pay for. We made some sweet memories and great friends.
Super clean, very friendly staff, and great food! Our butlers Eduardo and Edward went above and beyond for us. Bruno the bartender was great too!! The beach is beautiful and spacious, and the pools are wonderful. We can't wait to come back!
