Hotel's Favourite
We ve been in Iberostar about 5 times and 3 times in Punta Cana. We love Iberostar. And we still do. These holidays were especially important as the Covid thing was wearing us out. To make thing short : Bavaro Selection is just beautiful : beautiful gardens, beautiful to watch, well taken care of by an army of gardeners. People are nice. People are varied. Russian, deutsch and some locals. American as well. Very pleasant. It's better if you speak spanish (we don't). But it's ok if you don't. The room was huge, italian shower, very large bed. We slept very well. It was quiet when we needed quite (at night). Very much appreciated this quietness (it's not obvious i tell you). The swimming pool was a bit small for swimming, especially at week end when there are many people, so we mostly used the beach. There are some algae but they are being taken care of every day by 2 big tractors (John Deer 5065 series...). Lots people have been enjoying the beach and the sea. Internet is fast : between 1MB/s and 3MB/s roughly. wifi, not wired. Even on the beach. The buffets are great. Not fantastic, but we like food, so we enjoyed what was on offer : plenty for every tastes. Fruits, vegetables, meats, cakes, ... Really plenty. We tried the theme restaurants. We especially enjoyed the japanes one. The guy made quite a show. And we ate too much ... as usual ! People are relaxed, and we were relaxed, so these were great holidays.

This is the third time I have stayed at the Iberostar Selection Bavaro Suites. The past two times were pre-COVID and on mother daughter trips with my mom and sister. This time we went to celebrate my parents 50th Anniversary. We had 5 rooms for the 10 of us ranging in age between 16 and 77 and all of us had a great time. We stayed for one week. The staff were all so friendly and helpful. I would only offer two negatives. We had asked to be all grouped together but were spread out. The second negative was my sister and her family's room cleaning. It was amazing how different her room was cleaned (or not cleaned) vs the rest of us. My parents' room and my husband and my room were not only cleaned well but provided with extras like towel animals/sculptures, flowers on bed (an extra special one for my parent's anniversary but we had flowers too). I found the entertainment staff was perfect (in the past they might have been a bit pushy but this time they were just the right amount of interactive). The two 16 year old kids really enjoyed going to the teen space at night. We went to five specialty restaurants which were no problem getting reservations for (Mexican (OK), Japanese (I would skip), French (the best). Greek (very good), and Italian. The only suggestion I would offer is to have an area where there are higher tables (not just coffee tables) that guests could play games on (not associated with food area). We are a card playing family and found it difficult to find an area to accommodate this (that wasn't too loud). But overall I would give this resort an excellent rating!

We went here in Aug 2022. Amazing hotel, lovely staff and wonderful food. Service was top notch at all the restaurants. Rooms were clean and spacious. My family and I had a wonderful time. The selection of alcohol is also very good. The grounds of the hotel are very green with coconut and palm trees lining the walkway. Truly paradise! Only draw back was the seaweed in the sea, which is nature- cannot fault the hotel and points to a healthy ocean.

I’ll start by saying it’s beautiful but we had to wait an hour 30 to check in past check in time. We were celebrating a 30th birthday and invited a lot of friends but were unable to make reservations for dinner all together. We arrived Wednesday and everything was taken. After talking with the manager for 2 1/2 hours we were able to get dinner 4/6 nights together. They couldn’t even split us up. Dinners were empty!! We were told they were all booked but I believe it is short staff. The breakfast buffet is the same every morning. The lunch outside is the same every day and then they make something in the big pan. That was the only thing that was different. The dinner buffets do change a little bit each night but paying all this money you don’t want to go to a buffet every day. We found cockroaches in our room. We called the concierge desk and they were very rude and hang out before saying goodbye or I could finish. The cleaning ladies are open all the doors and windows when they are cleaning. I understand this may be so people can see what they’re doing but this also allows bugs and other nasty things in your room. The activity people were amazing. We played a beer chugging contest, water aerobics, karaoke, beach party, fire man, ect. They were the best thing about to the trip The gym is really small. Go early if you want to use any of the machines. 2/5 treadmill’s were only working for the week that we were here. Go early to the pool to put your towels down on chairs. You will not be able to find a spot past 10 am. The beach is full of seed weed. They to take a tractor in the morning to get some off but it does not help. It is all in the water and smells. All the severs and workers were very nice. Make sure you bring cash to trip them. 8/11 of our guest did get diarrhea daily starting the second day. Will not be coming back to the Iberostar again. * Picture of the food is from the Greek restaurant.

We never got the water bottles were supposed to use daily. Bring a refillable container. The sand is gorgeous, doesn't get hot. The ocean is brown and full of seaweed. Nasty. Do not get in it. There are few shops and they all sell the same tourist niknak stuff. The room was spacious, and clean, but very limited space outside bath/entry/closet. We could only get into one restaurant- they were all booked- Japanese. Best meal of the trip. Management got us in the Mexican when we inquired, but it wasn't worth it. small portions, and slow service. The buffet was packed and had good variety, but 10,000 people using the same thongs which were used for multiple items was not sanitary. Couldn't adjust the speed of the fan in the room, and it never cooled off. The pools were beautiful but so crowded. The resort is gorgeous, well done, very clean, and staff is A+. Don't do the plantation excursion, it's just a stop to sell you things. The cave swim was not at all worth it. Gross water and 40 people all taking a turn to jump in and right back out in the 20 min. The beach stop was pretty, but you are ambushed by people trying to make a buck. I won't go to the Dominican Republic again. but would stay at Iberostar again. Our room was right in the kiddie area which was very nice for families. But the karaoke was loud, late at night. They cut down some palm trees the next two days outside our room which again, was loud, in the early morning. But that was necessary.

We were not happy about the quality of this hotel. There were some issues (e.g. just 3 beds ready although we are 4 and had to wait 2h for a change of room; restaurants all fully booked (apparently); ice cream “bar” closed during the whole stay; TV just hanged up and falling from the wall). All these issues could have been explained and solved. Unfortunately, however, the staff at the reception is rude (they repeatedly hanged up on us) and not willing to help. We will not return.

it was okay resort. compare to Mexico, this place is lower quality on food and drinks and service. the biggest thing for me was service. 90% of the stuff dont speak English at all. Very hard to communicate. we were placed in the villa by the ocean way too far away from the main lobby. to get to main lobby we had to call a golf card. and that was very bad experience. on the phone they would tell us that ride will pic us up in 5 mins but majority of the time it was more like 30-40 minutes. imagine now with 5 years old to stand outside of your room for 40 mins to wait for a ride............... nobody control what is going on in the pool either. my mom got hit in a face with the ball in the pool. she had a black eye bruise. nobody did anything about it. medic spoke 0 English.. we went during seaweed season. beach next to our resort was not cleaned from seaweed even once. so gross. other resorts next to us had better service and beach area was cleaner. everything is old, beach furniture, pool furniture, room. very frustrating experience honestly. will never go there again. Cancun, Mexico was way way way better.

We had an excellent experience at this resort I would recommend avoiding the timeshare presentation you will not enjoy it but you will enjoy the entertainment at night and the staff in general ...we did not have any issues at the front desk at all and everybody was awesome that we talked to... Anybody that says the food is bad at this resort obviously has some other agenda because the food is quite good they have anything and everything that you would need everything seemed to be pretty fresh to us... We liked it so much we are going back for a whole month middle of November. The beach was really good but there is sometimes seaweed.. The beach is excellent for walking and the sand consistency is perfect and you can walk for miles in either direction.. You will feel safe because you have other resorts you pass constantly. Lots of vacationers on the beach, so no worries.. much nicer than puerto plata beach, and Cancun beach sand is too soft for walking and you sink in too much. The only negativity I have is when we were there in February there were a lot of Russians and they can be extremely rude I'm sad to say if you're walking on a path and they are 4 wide you'd better get out of their way. .. There was also a lot of smoking in the show area which turned us off quite a bit.. we of course do not expect any Russians this time around.. It would also be nicer if the pool area was on the beach side so you could see the ocean when you were in the pool instead of being sort of stuck on the back side of side of the restaurant area if you go to the bar area... I find that a bit of a negative just not very scenic or open.. .. We love the individual buildings it was very quiet at night and overall the air conditioning was excellent the comfort of the bed was excellent the size of the sink is great for 2 people.
