    Our stay was amazing! Our butlers Staling and Silvetre were the best we have ever had. Loraine and Yary in the dining areas were also outstanding and always had a smile on their faces. Mini me and Exellente were hilarious and definitely doing the job they were mean to do. All of these people made our stay most enjoyable.

    Best BAECATION ever

    This is definitely hands down the best all inclusive trip we have been to. The service here is unmatched. Our butlers Junior and Edward were on top of everything, they went above and beyond to make sure we had the best experience. Have tips on handy, I’m big on tipping and these folks deserve it more than anyone I know. The entire staff is so friendly and welcoming. They are so happy to help you! Seriously. This place was worth the money , the Buffets, restaurants, spas, pool, and everything is TOP NOTCH. I’m coming back in a few years ... I’m so sad I’m leaving but I am so glad I’ve came.

    Best Trip ever

    The trip was absolutely amazing from the minute we arrived. The attention to detail by the staff is incredible, our Butlers Luis and Fermin were outstanding, they helped us enjoy our honey moon with out any worries. They were always available and made sure everything was going smoothly during our stay. The entrainment staff is Amazing, Mini-Me is an absolute star, he is constantly smiling and is a ball of sunshine. We also had a blast with dancing lessons from Yocari-B. The foods amazing, the staff is by far the best and the grounds are pristine. You won’t be disappointed if you book here.

    A place in time unlike any other

    The Iberostar Grand Bavaro is like no other resort on the island... trust me when I tell you that. Excellente!!! is what you will experience every moment enjoying this resort. The rooms are magnificent.. and tastefully decorated. Next you meet your butler... Your butler is key to your vacation, our butler was Alby.. He is professional in what he does and does it well... he is friendly, attentive to our every need to make certain our vacation is the best. We were so very appreciative to have Alby as our butler. Hamlet provided us with cooling refreshments the entire day as we enjoyed the pool areas and camaraderie of other guests at the resort (I will recommend the frozen lemonade vodka drinks, the mojitos and the bloody marys). Our breakfasts would not be complete without having Brianda to ensure our mornings got off to a great start... exceptional in her job. Be sure to ask for her while you are there. The coffee's always hot, the mimosa's are always refreshing. You can catch her in the dining room too for dinner or a late snack in the evenings. She's waiting, ready to serve you. What??? I didn't mention the food... the food was fabulous... lots of familiar items and lots to try for the first time... and everything is prepared just for you. The entertainment and the entertainment staff are fabulous... cigar bar is a big hit for those who enjoy as are the gaming rooms... there is something for everybody, Sleeping was just as enjoyable at the resort... the beds are luxuriously comfortable as are the variety of pillows. A pleasant night's rest to enjoy your days at The Grand Bavaro. We have visited Punta Cana twice and both times we have stayed at the Grand... we would stay no other place.. the price of our trip is very reasonable for the luxury you get to experience while staying at the Iberostar Grand Bavaro, Oh and you must indulge yourself in a massage at the Spa... oh heaven, truly. Thank you again to Alby, Hamlet and Brianda and to all the staff at this hotel... it is because of everything you do that makes my vacations memorable. A.

    Perfect Beach Vacation in Dominican Republic!

    This was our 4th visit to Iberostar Grand Bavaro in 4 years...and as expected, it was EXCEPTIONAL. Why do I love this property? Besides, it being simply breathtaking, beach perfect, water beautiful,'s the team members at IGB that make excellent into OUTSTANDING! There's been an insane amount of bad press about the DR lately, and some it to me is questionable, and it saddens me because the Dominican people are a warm & gracious culture that relies upon US tourism for their livelihood! If you decide to visit the DR, you will love IGB! The grounds are lovely! Even the Lake View suites are actually Ocean View! But the people are the greatest asset of this resort! Butler Service AMAZING....You are assigned a gracious and helpful butler to cater to your every desire. Big shout out to the outstanding service of Justo, Leo & Rodriguez during our stay last week! Every day at 5pm, Champagne was waiting in our room. Kudos to a previous butler of ours from a prior visit, Carlos, for taking care of our friends who joined us this trip! We knew they were in excellent care! The entertainment team was a WOW! Cutie Pie ( Miguel)...YOU ROCK! Cannot stop laughing! Mimi Me & Armando...the patience of a saint trying to teach me to dance Bacchata. The wait staff at the pool: Dionys, Braulo, Mayilex, Hamlet, Lely...all Wonderful! Not to forget...Raphael & Melvin at the Front Desk Check In....I don't know how he does it, but we met Raphael 4 years on our 1st trip to the DR and he remembers us every year! I think it's a shame what is happening in the news and the other resorts in the DR. But this is a true gem of the Iberostar brand and the DR. You will simply not regret a moment visiting this property! Trip #5 is already booked for January 2020! Cannot wait!
