3rd Time and Still Loving It

Daniella S (Mississauga, Canada) on Nov 28, 2022

This is our 3rd visit to Grand Bavaro in 12 months. This place is the best place that we have been to in our many adventures. I will break it down into sections as best I can. Check in/Reception It was lovely that Daniel remembered us when we dropped off with our luggage. He immediately asked where our daughters were. *They were there with us in June*. Angel welcomed us back and kept good care of us. Room We always get the swim-up room. We don't use the beach or main pools as we like the quiet. We spend the whole day at our swim-up. In November, the water is VERY refreshing aka a bit crisp. In June MUCH warmer. The sun is only shining in the pool and patio from 1pm-430pm. In June, about 1030am. Not a sun worshiper so love this. Not many people use the swim out. We will likely bring our own skimmers. Not that they don't clean the pool but dem pesky bugs like the pool too much. You shouldn't be in your room long but the beds are fantastic, the rain showerhead, double sinks are great. Remember to put your blinds down so you don't give the other resort a show. You back on to the other resort with a lot of greenery so don't see many people. And FYI, no bar service coming to you. We asked our butlers for champagne and pineapple juice for 1030 each day and it was enough to carry us over. Butlers Edward. I can't say enough about this man. We have been blessed to have met this wonderful, dedicated person. We had some hiccups with our luggage aka it came destroyed, and he and Danilo , our other butler, were scouring the Island trying to find the meds that my husband needed to take that came in the destroyed, delayed luggage. They weren't able to find it BUT Edward stayed past his normal 8 hour day and ended up waiting until we got our baggage and could check that our meds were ok. He was also able to get us a replacement luggage off resort so we would have the right size going back. On his own time. Our thanks also to Danilo. This was our first time with him and he was great to make sure that none of our deliveries of 1030 mimosas or 0730 Coffee and Baileys were missed. We all develop relationships but the one thing that Grand Bavaro does better than anyone else is the butler service. Please don't ever change this. We have had cheaper and more expensive options to go to and the reason we come back is because of the butlers! Cleaning Staff Ladies, you are truly amazing. Every day our room was cleaned thoroughly. Most resorts in and out within 15 minutes. They were usually there 30 minutes. Thank you!!!!! Bar staff Lisandra and Sujiedy (I know i have spelt it wrong) remembered us from last time and we didn't even have to start ordering. They always brought us what we needed. Restaurant staff Samuel, Juan and Jasiel. You 3 always made sure i had my cappuccino no canela. Never a shortage of DR tequila aka water. Food We love love the surf and turf and the Mediterrean (get the bass). We got to experience seafood night at the buffet. The food is always great. We hope to be back in a few months.

Honeymoon vacation

Katie G on Nov 28, 2022

It was absolutely AMAZING! We have been here on our honeymoon and it was so perfect! Our butler, Danilo made sure each time we came back to our room there was something so sweet and romantic for us! We never needed anything! Everyone on the resort was so so sweet and kind! I really cannot say enough good things about Iberostar or Danilo! If you are looking for your next trip this is the place! Also, Jean our concierge was so great! Anytime we came to lobby you always saw his bright smile and welcomed you with open arms! We have really enjoyed our honeymoon! We are not ready to go back home.
