Made tons of friends, had tons of fun. I did not really want to leave. But I guess I have to. The morning of, I packed my bag and was ready to leave. Brought our bags to the front of the lobby waiting to be picked up by our travel bus.

Spoke to my parents after breakfast, and guess what our flight is delayed because there was a horrible …

Today is actually our last day of our trip.

We didn't do anything interesting today, however, we did have an amazing dinner at the end of the day. We went to the spa, and we to the sauna.

Shopping is really important, the guide and the man from the airport told us not to go the Haitian's stalls at the end of the beach because the …

Fourth day here in Punta Cana. Enjoying the sun.

Today, my boyfriend and I went to the Dolphin Explorer adventure. It is amazing, I got to swim with the dolphins, it was only 4 hours. I wished we got to spend more time with the dolphins. But it was really short. Included in the Dolphin Explorer was the bird show, and the sea lion show …

Today is the outback trip. So our hotel is the last to be picked up for almost all the trips, so we could sleep in and not have to worry about missing our trip. Therefore, we are the last ones to be dropped off at the end of the day.

This outback trip is a whole day trip, I know whole day. It must be boring however, we did a lot of …

Today is the SECOND day in Punta Cana. So based on my phone's weather forecast, we got cloudy skies and rain. However, when it says that it does not really mean cloudy skies and rainy. Cloudy skies, I am still getting burnt. My friend turned into a lobster, of course he totally forgot to put on sunscreen but the sun is so high, even under cloudy …

    This holiday is amazing, of course I went during Christmas break. So the Christmas lights were out which made the main room really beautiful. The people here are really friendly, really approachable. I would recommend this resort to my friends and family.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Iberostar Bavaro Punta Cana

    Loved the snorkling


    I went to the Iberostar Punta Cana from Jan 6 to Jan 13. This is by far the best resort that I have ever stayed in. The only complaint that I had about the resort was that there buffet food was not that good. But I was always able to find something that I liked (on some days it was a burger or a hotdog). We ate at three specialty restaurants, the food was good at those. The place was spotless and the people were always happy and helpful. I had the oppertunity to check out some of the other resorts around there, and the Iberostar was by far the best. The beaches were always kept spotless and the water was great. The Iberostar Dominicana seemed like it was the same as the Iberostar Punta Cana, so if you find the Iberostar Dominicana to be cheaper, go for it. The room that we stayed in was always clean, and our fridge was always restocked. We did only one excursion, it was the snorkling trip that let us drive a two person speed boat. It costed about $54 and was fully worth it. I would go back to Punta Cana and I would go back to this resort.

    Had a wonderful time!


    I went to the resort with my best friend in Dec 2002. When we pulled up to the resort. I was so impressed. It's beautiful. The lobby is beautiful. The workers are very friendly. You have to pay for the security vault key and you pick up your remote which I'd never experienced at a hotel. The resort is beautiful. The hotel room is OK. We stayed at Hotel Santo Domingo for 4 days before and their rooms are marvelous! Anyway, there were ants in the bathroom and my friends suitcase was covered with them (Her suitcase was near the bathroom.) Don't leave anything in the bathroom... Also, they adjust the air conditioner so high that when we returned at night the sheets were moist. Do something about this after the first night. Everything else was great. We ate at all of the restaurants, they are not as great as we thought... If you don't go to a restaurant, there are open buffets which are pretty good. The resort is really beautiful. Plan out your days... There is so much to do... Free Spanish lessons, dance classes, aerobics, sauna, jacuzzi, games etc... It's great for kids too!!

    Ready To Go Back!


    My husband and another couple stayed at the Iberostar Bavaro All-Suite Resort. We had an awesome time and we would recommend staying at this 6 golden apple resort! The weather was perfect, the resort was very clean, the beach was beautiful, the resort staff was very friendly and the margaritas were very tasty! The night-time entertainment is a little meek, but we had a great time none-the-less.

    I would definately recommend the beach-side massages and the party raft excursion. They sure know how to party!

    We will definately go back!

    A must visit!


    My wife and I went to Iberostar Punta Cana in September of 2002 and I have to say we had a blast! First, we live in Cleveland, Ohio and it only took around four hrs to get there. Not bad concidering driving four hrs south would get us to Cincinannti. Once we landed we were greeted with big smiles and flowers. The hotel suite we had was very elligant and overlooked the water, which added to the romance instantly. You really need to keep your heads up on the first day as to where to go to eat, but we shortly had that figured out. The food was excellent! We tried almost all of it. The resturants at the hotels are exquisit and everyone is very friendly. The beaches are gorgous and the water a blue/green in color. The night life was pretty cool, they put on dances and plays for you to watch and there is a dance club which was very crowded every night we went, but it was a good time. All in all we spent a full seven days there and we wished we didnt have to leave. The only down side? It rained two or three days we were there. Blame that on mother nature. We WILL go there again. Hope to see you there!

    Loved it


    My family and I just returned from a two week stay at the Iberostar Bavaro All Suites Resort in Punta Cana on January 9 2003. This resort is everything you could absolutly ever dream about and for someone to say that it does not meet the standered of excellence is someone who is never pleazed with anything.

    A Marquee Property


    This is a marquee property in every way. My spouse and I have been to 5 "X-Star/Golden Apple/Starfish...All Inclusives" in the Caribbean and this was far and away the best property yet.

    Ibero Bavaro. I great place.


    As a travel agent I visited pretty much every resort in Punta Cana and the Iberostar Bavaro all suite resort is by far the best I've seen.

    Lack of organization


    This area is beautiful, and the tours outside the resort were terrific - Don't miss the Outback Safari! The Iberostar's organization could use some help. We were waiting for our room for 2 hours in our clothes from the states, and everyday we'd see more new people come in their jeans and bags by the pool just waiting for their rooms. The food was good, and the entertainment was allright if you like drag - every night. Punta Cana is beutiful. Don't go to Iberostar unless you get a really good price.

    Iberostar Bavaro, A great experience!


    This was my first trip to the Dominican. The Iberostar Bavaro resort was wonderful. We stayed during the first week of November of 2002. The weather was perfect, 85 degrees on average daily. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I had read anothers review of the same resort hotel, and our experience was quite the opposite. Our suite was clean, well kept and quite nice. We did have a problem with getting our safe to work and there was no clock in the room either. We had to depend on wake up calls which worked out fine. House keeping came daily and we had no problems or complaints.
