Iberostar Grand Bavaro Hotel

You will not forget an experience in the Iberostar Grand Bavaro hotel. This amazing resort is part of the Iberostar hotel complex and is known to be one of the most luxurious ones. The place has approximately 274 rooms decorated with an European style. 

The all inclusive resort can be quite different from other 5 star hotels in the Punta Cana area. The 5 stars hotel is very elegant and is more focused towards adults. One of the most interesting features is the butler. He will attend to your needs and help you with everything you need. You have to remember they like tipping so if you do not tip them you are not going to see them around very often.

The Iberostar Grand Bavaro has a total of 274 rooms. The immense majority of them (264) are suites, 13 of them are ocean front grand suites and 1 of them is a presidential suite. All rooms are equipped with a fully stocked minibar, 24 hour room service, LCD TV with cable, radio-alarm with mp3 connection, DVD, a dining reservation service and a marble bathroom with a hydro massage bath tub. The ocean grand suites have a very big balcony with several tables and chairs so you can enjoy the view in a more relaxed way.

The king size bed is perfect to aid in the relaxation process and you mustn’t forget to close the electric blinds in case you want more privacy. The rooms are normally kept very well cleaned and complaints are normally taken care of. At the beginning of your stay the butler will also assist you in selecting your preferred type of pillow. Another important thing to keep in mind is the motion detector in the rooms. 

After approximately 15 minutes of no activity in the room the air conditioning will turn off, so you will need a couple of minutes every time you enter the room for it to get colder.

Pool and Beach

The beach near the resort is the very popular Bavaro beach. You will see the amount of seaweed is very little plus the chance of encountering rocks is incredibly small. The waves can be a bit strong sometimes but not something that is too much of a concern. Aside from the obvious beauty of the beach you can find some calmness while relaxing on it.

There is a specific area in the beach where merchants are selling their souvenirs and you can go to their shops if you want buy something. You will need to get up early to get one of the best spots in the beach. The best lounges are gone pretty early so if you want to get them, get up even earlier and use the traditional towel reservation technique. Fortunately the amount of people in the resort is not that big as to leave you completely out of chairs so if you like to get up a little late you still can find a decent lounge.

There are 2 pools in the Iberostar Grand Bavaro. One of them is frequently used to play volleyball and for the water aerobics in the mornings. The other one have 2 hot tubs merged into the pool. The pool area is surrounded by wooden lounge chairs and most of them are covered with nice a shade. Keep in mind that if you want a good lounge in the pool area you will need to reserve them with the towel technique. The pool tends to get more people than the beach so you will have to be like at 7:30 am to pick your spot.


This resort also offers a great variety food that can satisfy the most demanding palate. First they have the Bella Vista buffet; this buffet specializes in international cuisine and is where you will probably be eating most of your meals. It doesn’t matter what kind of food you like this buffet will be waiting to delight your appetite. You will probably keep returning to this buffet if you are pasta lover at the Iberostar Grand Bavaro resort. The place is air conditioned unlike the buffets at other resorts. There is another buffet available only for lunch and is called La perla snack bar.

The Iberostar Grand Bavaro also features 4 excellent a la carte restaurants. La Tentazione restaurant (Italian cuisine), Hashira restaurant (Asian food), La Tourbillon restaurant (Gourmet/French) and El Galeon (surf and turf). The Italian restaurant (La Tentazione) offers pasta and fish as well. The only downside is the portion that could be a bit small for a big eater. The Hashira restaurant is pretty popular and can easily be the best of all a la carte restaurants. The place is great if you want to socialize with other visitors at the resort as tables have seats for several people. The food here is very well seasoned, so if you like food that way this is the ideal eating place for you.

The lobster and the filet mignon at the Galeon restaurant should not be missed as they are among the top foods in the resort. The French restaurant (Tourbillon) is also fairly decent. Keep in mind that you need to make reservations to eat in the a la carte restaurants.
