Great Anniversary trip
Reviewed 20 hours ago

Just got back from the Grand. We really enjoyed our stay! Can't say enough good things about the staff. Very friendly and helpful!
Beach - beautiful, plenty of loungers in the shade. Not crowded. Seaweed picked up on a daily basis. Staff delivering water and drinks to your seat.
Star Friends - they made our stay special. They remember your name and get you to engage in fun activities like archery, dancing, silly games, bingo, water aerobics, etc. Shout out to Hot Chocolate, Cutie-Pie and Ariela! You are the best!!
Restaurants - Breakfast was good, plenty of options at the buffet. Lunch - the worst meal of the day. Most of the food was not hot. Dinner- excellent. Staff at all meals did a great job. They are polite and friendly, especially Oscar. One problem, we had a confirmed reservation at Casa del la Playa but it was unexpectedly closed and nobody told us.
Rooms - Very nice. Room cleaners did an excellent job. Love the rose petals and towel swans.
Butler - We never got a butler. Asked the first day, no butler. Asked the second day, no butler. Third day we briefly met a butler. She never said how she could help us. Never saw her again. Toward the end of our trip we had to fill out evaluation cards on the resort. We mentioned our lack of butler. That night the supervisor had a bubble bath and champagne waiting for us in our room as an apology. Thank you. But still never had a butler the whole trip. Not great as they could have helped with transfers, the restaurant problem or tidbits of helpful information (e.g. you must always close your safe before you leave the room)! Thank you to the man filling our mini fridge. He immediately called security when he saw our safe was open. I wish I knew your name. I really appreciate your honesty and following procedure!! Overall we loved it. We would have given this review 5 stars, if we had a butler! FYI- I ate the fruit and salad and never got sick! Also, tip the staff. They work very hard, always with a smile on their face.

This is where you want to go!!!

A vacation for us is an escape from the everyday pressures of life. If that vacation has stresses too then it doesn’t work the way we want it to. The Iberostar Grand in Punta has succeeded in providing an experience that has been extremely relaxing because they ensure that your every need and desire is looked after with great professionalism and good humour. A very special thanks to Carlos (and Cesar) - who has been happily looking after us for the past twelve days - making sure we had everything from chilled champagne in the room to many treats to celebrate my wife’s birthday - including an in room chocolate cake which she enjoyed after dinner and then again in the middle of the night - it was that good!
A couple of words about the Iberostate Golf Course attached to the resort - absolutely amazing. Again the smiles and laughter with the staff - including the myriad of people who are constantly grooming and preening everywhere make such a difference to your enjoyment of this unique and challenging course.
Lastly to the Star Prestige staff - you are warm and caring and so very approachable - you should be proud of your team. The Prestige Beach Club is staffed by very attentive and lovable people who sing for you, joke with you, remember your name and make a day on the beach a bit of heaven.
Thanks to you all - we will certainly return - and soon, we hope.

Had booked at one of the other properties however I was upgraded to the G. Bavaro. From the check-in to the personal concierge & butler this hotel was one of a kind. The service is excellent, the rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. The food was better than expected for an all inclusive and the pool & beach areas were impeccably maintained.
I will definitely return

Best trip to Iberostar Grand Bavaro
Reviewed 2 days ago

My husband and I just came from our first visit to the Iberostar Grand Bavaro and it was absolutely stunning. I’ve never experienced such phenomenal service from every staff member. Our super butler Cesar helped us with managing our dinner reservations, taxi reservations, restocking our hotel with food and drinks to name a few. I had an amazing 80 minute massage with Lynda and highly recommend utilizing their spa. Their food options were wonderful as well. The hotel inside and outside was pristine. I recommend purchasing the Star Prestige option as well and really appreciated the work Apollo did for us to make our trip fabulous. We were even given a form to fill out one night at dinner to rate our overall experience which shows that the Iberostar brand is committed to keeping their guests happy. I can’t wait to make another trip there!

This is a beautiful property with top notch maintenance. Our room, the landscaping and the public areas are all top notch. Everyone was very friendly with "hola" from everyone including the landscaping staff. The food overall was very good and the buffets were amazing The bar service had some great labels including 10 or so aged rums. There were a few things that needed improvement, mostly in communications. We struggeled getting answers from them before the trip about making reservations in the specilaty restaurants and when we were there, the communication went downhill. There is a book in the room about the amentities, but who wants to sit in your room and read it. They had a concierge we saw the first AM there, but his role was to get us to upgrade the room and to go to some breakfast where the want to get you to join their club, for a fee. After there a few days I saw in the book in the room they had a dive shop which I hadn't noticed. Learned it was at the next Iberostar property and two properties down was a casino. They need to make people more aware of the value they offer instead of having the concierge try to sell you something. I know we are in a spanish speaking country, but according to them 90% of their guests speak English. We had a terrible time getting descriptions of food prep and wine in the restaurants. Instead of passing off to someone to help us, we just kind of gave up.
