We have always stayed at Iberostar resorts on our vacations, and been very happy with our experiences. And the Iberostar Grand Bavaro has definitely proven that again. The Grand Bavaro is first-class in terms of what it has to offer. The room, pools, bars. restaurants, meals, and staff (in particular) were amazing. So happy with our butlers Staling; Leo; and Danillo who looked after us 24/7, Ery who made the best drinks at the pool bar, Poche who spoiled us at the Italian restaurant, and our most memorable and funny Star Friends Ruth, Yocari-B and Power. We simply cannot wait to go back now!!!
Grat Resort but service was not for a 5 star hotel.
Tip is included but everyone expecting a tip. If you hang out by the pool and the waiter is serving you a drink and you don’t tip him he will not coming back to you.
Also the are trying to sell you timeshare of iberostar hotels.
Entire staff were all fantastic! Loved the Star Friends Isabel, Power, Ruth, Jojo and Amuando! So much fun! Bartenders Ery, Lely and Sylvester! Everyone followed COVID protocal, very safe! Evening buffet is currently closed. Only specialty restaurants but no problem with getting reservations. Butlers were so helpful! Room service is awesome! A gorgeous resort as usual. We will be going back a 3rd time soon! Do not hesitate to go! Thank you all! We had a wonderful time for my hubby's birthday and New Years Eve was the BEST!!! See you soon!
