Hi, I stayed at IFA Villa Bavaro for five nights in December 2014. It is an acceptable resort but it is by no means anything special. My room was #1146. I calculated the distance to the beach on gmaps and it was over one kilometer! One hald kilometer to the main pool and buffet restaurant. I was in a standard... More

Special thanks to Fransisco and the animation team. They where great. The resort was not as beautiful as we'd expected, but it's a great place to relax and enjoy the weather. The a la carte restaurants (with reservation only) where nice. The dinner buffet was bad compared to the restaurants. We didn't really like the swimming pools, so we spent... More

This is my second time to IFA Villas. We found the High Bar and Espresso Bar to be especially nice. Great beach. Food and drinks are OK. The spa gives good massages but doesn't allow the guests receiving treatment to use the sauna or hot tubs,

We did upgrade from the bungalows to the rooms closer to the beach. The bungalows were nice and 'quaint', but for not a whole lot more money we got very nice rooms! The only 'complaint'... More
