    This was my very first time visiting and staying in Punta Cana and will DEFINITELY be coming back! All the staff was awesome. We used room service only once and was not happy with it. I did not get what I ordered and my cousin only got half right of what she ordered and both breakfasts were cold upon arrival to our room. This was our only downfall to our vacation stay here. This was our friends and family trip, and can't wait to do it again.

    This was our 2nd visit to the resort in 2 years. Again, the staff at Iberostar Grand Bavaro delivered! Our family of 40+ members were greeted VIP style at check-in, served specialty cocktails, provided with all of the details for our party's events and accommodated at each request during our stay. Our personal butler, Jimmy, provided an exceptional guest experience. He checked in with us daily. In fact, several times during the day to ensure that our needs were met and that we were enjoying ourselves. We were getting dressed for the wedding and I had an unusual request. I asked Jimmy for tape and he said to give him a few minutes. Within 5-8 minutes, Jimmy returned with tape for me to seal our wedding gift. We appreciated that he was attentive to our needs, both normal and out of the ordinary. We will be certain to share our experience while at Iberostar Grand Bavaro and will return for a future stay. Thanks Iberostar Grand Bavaro! Keep delivering on guest experiences.

    We just returned from a 7 night trip with another couple, our second time to this resort. It’s truly luxury and indulgence. Food is the best I’ve had at an all inclusive. Don’t miss Gala night at the buffet. This time we also golfed three times as well. Course was in fantastic shape, and no hidden fees - all cart, green fees, transportation, etc in the price. We had two rounds of golf included from our package and paid nothing upon arrival to use. Highly recommend Star Prestige if you like to golf and spa as it comes with a lot of included services for these - we got another golf for two and 4x25min massages included. We love the pool, and the daily aqua fit and bingo. Cabana beds and chairs easy to come by. I recommend bringing a pool float, and your own “yeti” type mugs for best experience. The beach was in perfect condition, while seaweed was minimal I saw the tractors out as well and it was great for walking on the sand. We had a garden view room and felt it was nice. Fun towel art daily, and surprise baths from our butlers. Really good shows every night, our favorite was Music Trivia. Many staff we need to thank for making our trip so special, including our butlers Daniel and Luis (we saw them daily, always asking if we needed anything), Cyntia at the Star Prestige desk (helped us use all our benefits), Tobias and Marlon who took amazing care of us at the pool every day (I had a refill at exactly the right moment always), Irbania the smiling host at the buffet, Alba who made incredible omelettes for me every day, Ortiz was one of so many servers (I can’t even remember everyone’s name, there is about 10 servers I need to mention but can’t remember), the Paella chef at the pool buffet (yum!), Tomas who made me the best margaritas every day at the lobby bar (he remembered my tequila choice from day 1). I also want to say that the staff at the golf course were so lovely, the starters, the on-course drink cart fellow who consistently appeared at the right moment for all 3 rounds of golf, and the two attendants who cleaned our clubs and gave us range balls. Gosh this sounds like a lot of people but honestly I’ve missed so many. I could write for hours about the happy staff and the high level of service delivered every single moment. Thanks to all!

    Ended up at the Grand Bavara due to a mix up in wedding planning, but the change was definitely for the best! The staff is very professional and charismatic and our butler, Jimmy B, took real nice care of us. The resort masterfully designed and decorated, providing an inviting experience from the lobby to the beach. The resort is 18+ only but caters more to older generations. While they don't have a formal club or space for night life, there was still plenty to do from the nightly shows to dancing every night in the lobby. Would without a doubt come back again, thank you Iberostar.

    Amazing experience!

    I was visiting the resort for a friend's wedding and this has been an absolutely spectacular experience. The service staff, including my butlers Jimmy and Edward, were all extremely helpful. Everything exceeded my expectations and I would definitely recommend this resort for your Dominican Republic stay.
