    Iberostar excelence!

    We had a Honey Moon Suite and it was the best decision we made. We had an awesome stay, every single day was worth it. Anything you wanted to eat, they had it in the buffet and they have many restaurants to choose from. Thanks to Rosa, our rooms service staff, and every Iberostar personal that help me had a great romantic dinner in front of the beach with my girlfriend in our anniversary. I would 200% recommend this hotel and I will be back soon to keep enjoying everything this awesome resorts offers.

    Amazing resort

    I had an overall great time with my daughter, we ate amzing food from breakfast to dinner buffet or restaurant. But my favorite part was the shows at night, extremely friendly personel would invite us to dance and put a smile on my daughters face. Mr. Break Dancer, Black panther, and mariachi were phenomenal. 100% would recommend.

    Gluten free friendly

    Had a wonderful vacation! As I am and one other family member are gluten free, they were very helpful. Orlando, one of the head chefs, was extremely caring and provide many options. He has gluten free bread and muffins you can ask for. They wrote us letters about being gluten free to bring to each restaurant for dinner. Orlando came and found us at each meal to make sure we had enough gluten free foods. Orlando was very accomdating for our needs. He was a great help! Would definitely recommend for any who is gluten free and others!

    Another great stay

    Stayed at Iberostar Selection Bavaro 05/20/19 to 05/25/19. This was our second visit to the property and we noticed lots of improvement since our last visit in 2012. Excellent value as usual, and the staff was again excellent. We appreciate that Iberostar treats its staff well as we spoke to several employees who told us they love working there. As confirmation, we could tell from our interaction with the staff that they enjoy what they do since they all have smile on their face and assisted us with great attitude. Everyone went above and beyond to make our stay pleasant - from the front desk staff who changed our room immediately when I asked because our first room was a bit musty due to the humidity, to the concierge staff (trainee?) Kevin who went looking for us to notify us that his supervisor King was back and would be able to help us with restaurant booking for the same night. King, Kelly, Disney and many others who helped make this a great visit again. Special thanks to the servers and bartenders all over the property who did not bat an eyelash with my weird drink requests, and our beach front drinks server who kept us well hydrated all day, every day. Some reviewers mentioned that staff did not speak English well, but we did not experience that problem. Most staff greeted us in Spanish as we did the same. After my rudimentary Spanish ran out, the staff was able to engage in English with no problem. The hostess at the Italian restaurant on Tuesday, 05/21/19, was so nice. There was a baby that was getting very cranky during dinner, and the hostess approached the frazzled parents and took the baby to divert his attention. She watched him and showed him around while the parents finished up their dinner, ensuring the parents were fed, the baby was happy, and most importantly, the other customers were not disturb by a crying baby. Of course we loved seeing her again the following few nights at other restaurants as her personality was a joy to watch. Loved that the hotel has a coffee shop, Star Cafe where you can grab drinks, sandwiches, and desserts while enjoying the air conditioned seating area. Also has ice cream stands (near the pool area) which offered several flavors. The food area for the buffets are air conditioned which was great to keep the flies out (only saw a few errant flies while there at the buffet). Food selections were plentiful with diverse choices for everyone. Again, for the price paid, the food offerings were great with varieties of seafood, steaks, and themed event - giant paella on Wednesday! Property was well maintained with plenty of staff going around doing upkeep. I was told that the hotel will be closed for renovation for a few months for update including bathroom. That would be a good idea as the shower door in our bathroom did not have rubber seal on the door and water from the shower would escape out the side panel onto the floor as the hotel has shower head with excellent water pressure which created quite a splash. Overall, love our 2nd stay at Iberostar Selection Bavaro. We will definitely be back because of the great staff, and excellent value.
