IFA Bavaro Resort & Spa is an All-Inclusive in Punta Cana. The resort is a good moderately priced resort with great potential. During my visit the hotel was undergoing a great deal of renovations that when finished will definitely improve the value to its guests. IFA is a good sized resort with 652 rooms currently. Once the renovations are finished...

We had so many problems no a/c no water ,no towels ,ants , water leaking everywhere in our room. If you have these issues don't expect management to help. No one cared! But Luckily the food was...

I actually visited this resort in 2014 and it was amazing!!!!! The pool entertainment and the shows were awesome. The food was great. This resort has so many pools and bars. The shows were the best part; the theatre was well set up. Great place. Truly underrated.
