GreenLeaders Platinum level
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.

This was trip was nothing short of magical. The hotel and grounds are gorgeous, the ocean & beach breath taking, both buffet & fine dining were stellar but the staff made it all exceptional. Even with their masks on you could see the smiles in their eyes & hear sincerity in their voices. Our butlers Alberto and Kelvin were a treat. All the servers were wonderful but a special thank you to Poche, Ana and Marlon. They picked up on what we liked right away and we never went without. The golf course was immaculate. We went on the half day fishing excursion and although we were the only boat who didn’t catch a fish we still had a great time and we were able to see a few whales. We have traveled to several other tropical locations but this was our favorite. We can’t wait to go back. Our only regret is not staying longer!

It was long holiday ( a month) because of airfrance changing flights back to Poland, but very quite and very attractive. The only inconvinience was windy weather during 2 weeks. In pandemia restrictions the whole staff of the hotel was very kind, usefull, helpfull and attending of the guests during their stay there. Food was nice although a little bit limitted comparing to last years. (Nobody was hungry I am sure!!!) Rooms cleaned very good, minibar service also very nice. Butlers very helpfull and engaged in their job. Service on the beach excellent! Entertaintments and shows very attractive. Because of not very many guests athmosphere very quite. Guest service excellen! Bravo Bjorquis! The Club service excellent! Thank you all of you!! Yes., I will cmone next year. This is my home in Dominicana.

Beautiful place! We initially booked at the neighboring resort, but decided to switch after the first night when we walked through this palace. The food was stellar international cuisine, the liquor was top shelf, the rooms were cozy and exceptionally well modeled (i spent a few choice nights in our own personal jacuzzi sudded up), but what stood out most of all was the outstanding service from the staff and chefs, who made doubly sure our every desire was satisfied, and made the Grand a truly pleasurable, fun and wholly refreshing experience. I want to give special thanks to Ruth who led bingo and dancing lessons, Ery and his crew who were the main bartenders at the pool bar, and Ingrid who manned the cigar room bar for their exceptional service-- they made what would otherwise have been a cushy but uneventful trip truly memorable with their energy and fun attitudes. Please give them raises! All in all, i was worried that this trip wouldn't have been as fun as previous trips due to Covid. But thanks to the lush accommodations and wonderful staff, this was one of the best experiences i have ever had at a resort!

The Iberostar Grand bavaro hotel was beautiful from the minute you walked into the lobby until the minute you left there on your way home. Our Butler Alberto went above and beyond anything we even imagined! we never had to ask him twice for anything and he always had our favorite drinks ready for us in our room. He set up a romantic dinner on the beach for just the two of us... it was magical!! Santos made sure our dinner was served perfectly! Marlon made sure he took care of anything we needed as well...Ery at the pool made sure we always had a drink in hand (aye aye aye!!!) The rooms were made up morning and evening... We were spoiled beyond measure!! We felt safe at the resort and can't wait to get back! This is one experience we can't wait to have again..we are spoiled for life! Thank you Damien, Sofia, Ruth, Anthony, Suxita and Kelvin..just to name a few) ;)

We traveled to the Iberostar Grand Bavaro in late Febr 2021. Was nervous to travel because of Covid, but was so glad we decided to take the chance! The resort has excellent safety protocol in place. Check-in was easy. We asked about room upgrades since the occupancy was so low, but would have had to pay $100 per night for an upgrade so we decided to keep our original room facing the neighboring sister resort roof tops. The rooms were nice and clean and on the smaller side. We filled out the Covid testing paperwork for US travelers during check-in and received our appointment confirmation the same day. Our butler Staling made sure we had copies of our passport and the necessary paperwork for the appointment. Staling even brought us our results the same day we were tested. Fantastic! Danilo was also our butler who helped us with reservations, answering questions and who even brought us a few drinks and a couple pizzas! We can not say enough about how wonderful Staling and Danilo were to us all week! Lely and Ery gave us great bar service! They always tried to make our drinks just the way we liked them. If they ran out of something, they always tried to find it. So accommodating! Elizabeth served us most evenings up at the lobby outside. She is so sweet. We wish there would have been a light beer offered. We ate the breakfast buffet a couple mornings and decided to skip breakfast the rest of the vacation. The omelets were very good, but didn't care for much else besides the fruit and a few pastries. Sometimes we felt like we were inconveniencing them. Lunch and dinner was excellent! We always found something we liked on the menu. I even asked for a little bit of guacamole and they brought me a small salad dish of guac at lunch daily. Perfect! Each day the staff always asked if we needed anything in the minibar in our room. This was one of the only properties that didn't have snacks in the room. Not a big deal, but it would have been a nice amenity since so much of the resort was closed. The buffet breakfast and lunch was open, and each night two ala carte restaurants were open. The swim up bar, the beach bar, and the cigar bar was closed. The resort was only at approximately 20% - 25% capacity, so pool and beach chairs were always available! Most of the time our travel group of 6 were the only ones in the pool! The entertainment team was fantastic! Power, Armando and Ruth were a lot of fun! We enjoyed getting to know them. The disco and theatre were also closed. There was no nightlife outside of the shows. Since the theater was closed the shows were at the lobby outside. The shows were good, same basic shows as most resorts, circus, rock show, Michael Jackson, etc. I'd give this resort 4.5 stars out of 5 if I could. We also had frequent power outages in the rooms. Overall we had a wonderful vacation!
