Only 20 minutes from the international airport of Punta Cana and located in one of the most emblematic beaches of the eastern region of the Dominican Republic we find the Iberostar Grand Hotel Bávaro. Majestic in its external appearance and in its decoration, it responds to a project devised by the prestigious Mexican architect Fernando Quirarte and inspired by Greco-Roman architecture. Its gardens and varied representation of native species found in a lush central lake, where it hosts a spectacular sailboat reproduced in real size and converted into one of the most original bars in the entire Caribbean, make this hotel a unique place. In addition, staying at our hotels will help take care of the planet thanks to our Wave of Change initiative: throughout 2020, all our rooms are free of single-use plastics, which will be replaced by other materials that are more environmentally friendly. This ambitious initiative will also be extended to the rest of the hotel areas. Together with its luxury facilities, an unbeatable environment, pioneering impulses, an exclusive attention also stands out: customers talk about the unforgettable experience of the stewardship service. Luxury, a service that is completed with a SPA overlooking the Caribbean Sea, careful with the environment, this hotel gathers everything to give its guests a personalized and unique stay.

What a great place to get away from the world . Julio and Cofe were fantastic butlers. Our room was awesome. Views were stunning. Hard to beat mimosas served on the balcony every day at 3 PM. Hate to go home after 7 days but reality calls. We’ll be back

Hotel's Favourite
This was our 6th time to the Grand. While it is not the same as when we first visited, it is still a great place to go. The changes are probably due to being older (mid 60s) than anything else. The property gets better every time we go. The grounds are spectacular and very well manicured. Room On the smaller size than some other resorts, but still had plenty of room. They are clean and well maintained. However, they are probably in need of an overhaul within the next few years. Water pressure in the shower was decent, but not great. There is a large balcony with multiple chairs and an outdoor loveseat. Buffet Breakfast buffet is my favorite. Plenty of options from eggs to cereal to toast to fruit and juices, plus plus. Lunch was good, but somewhat repetitious. However, you are sitting right on the beach, so not too bad. Restaurants All were good, with excellent options and good quality. We did not have a bad experience (did not get to the Japanese). What makes the Grand a place to return to is the staff. They are fantastic, with excellent English, Spanish, German, etc. However, I’d like to point out several staff who made our stay exceptional. Ery, Lely and Kerlin at the swim up bar are absolute gems. Especially Ery, who was very funny, engaging, and appeared to be truly happy doing what he is doing. I had a hat on that read ‘Punta Canada’, so I was called Punta Canada from day one until we left. Ortiz and Lorraine at the breakfast buffet both recognized us (from previous visits) immediately on our first day. They were so pleasant and helpful with our dining needs. My last but not least mention is for Salvador (or as we called him – Houston….his first name). Houston was our assigned Butler. He had been our Butler last year when we were there and we requested his services again this year. You could always tell him ‘Houston, we have a problem’ and his response would always be ‘let me fix it’ without even knowing what it was. He looked after everything for us – dining bookings, etc. However, one afternoon, he just sat with us by the pool and we talked about our families, our countries and jobs. Houston loves his country, loves his job, and loves his family. Iberostar should be extremely proud of the type of person he is and hire more Salvador’s.

Enjoyed the staff at the Grand. They were very friendly and helpful. Our butler Robert answered our questions and resolved any issues The entertainment staff were fun. Wished the app was more reliable and gave directions/map to the various activities. The signage (name) to bars should be better displayed. It was interesting trying tasting the international food, so many choices. The weather was too humid for me, beautiful scenery and ocean

Packaging and leaving are hard, but another great vacation has ended. We will return, but next time for two weeks. The daily massages have been so relaxing and refreshing. Paula was excellent, as she would work out the knots in my muscles and relax me. The entire staff here at Grand Bavaro has been exceptional, from our two butlers, Julio and Cofe, who always had everything under control, we would see them all over the resort, and they worked hard to make sure everything we needed was done. They had great personalities. The Star Prestige Staff was always there to help, ensuring everything was smooth, especially France and Juliana. Our Ambassador Angel made all my requests come true and helped us enjoy every aspect of our trip; he always checked in and ensured I had nothing to worry about. The staff at the beach, Augusto Nuñez, Jesus Andy, and Manuel, were so much fun and had everything we needed in our Cabana. They were always happy, helpful, and resourceful. They were checking on us constantly. We had Naomi as our waitress every lunch; she always looked after us and was so attentive that by the second day, she remembered what we liked, as did Ramona at breakfast. Every morning she welcomed us, knew us immediately, and was very attentive. I highly recommend this place. The food and drinks were great, and the beach might be the best in the Iberostar Grands. What a week. Last night was the Gala night, and to say Amazing is an understatement. They surprised us at dinner with rose petals all over the table; the head chef, Renzo, came over to introduce himself and give us a tour of what they had prepared for the night. Then Angel had one last surprise: the head Mixologist, Kavir, created a special cocktail for us, which they delivered to our table in a lit-up box. So cool, I posted a video. We met some fantastic new friends who were the nicest people in the world, and we hope to vacation again together in the future, Magdalena and her husband, Piero. I knew when I purchased the membership that it wasn’t just to save money but to have better vacations. I didn’t think I would have such a great time on vacation, but that is the staff at the resort and the friends you meet as you go. All the members we have met this past year seem fun, friendly, respectful, and looking to have an excellent vacation for themselves and their families. Every Iberostar we have vacationed at, the staff has treated us better than family.

Excellent service as always! Employees at Iberostar Grand go out of their way to make you feel like family. Resort grounds are imaculant and the beach is well kept with minimal rocks. Highly recommend Iberostar brand resorts and hotels for all searching for an unforgettable experience. Until next time....

Great all inclusive resort. Staff is very attentive and always great you with a smile. Especially our butler Cofe and Daniel from the front desk. Both went above and beyond to make our stay the most enjoyable experience ever. Only comments for future guests would be get to the pool early if you want a covered cabana. You will need a break from the tropical sun.

Everyone is so accommodating and the resort is beautiful. So many different places to eat and get drinks. The pools are great and the swim up bar is really nice. The beach area was great with plenty of lounge chairs. The banquets and celebrations were fantastic with live music and a huge variety of foods. Love it!
