Luxury Travel at its best. Great Beach, service, and drinks.

I highly recommend Iberostar Hotel Bravaro. My wife and I visited on our honeymoon, and were very happy with our decision. It's an adults only resort, so you'll have to leave the kids at home.

The staff was very welcoming and great! They all call you by name, and greet you with a smile. The food was delicious, and the drinks were great.

The only thing that I'd caution you against, is accepting an invitation to get the free gift certificate. You'll waste half of your day dealing with high pressure salesman, and a timeshare-esque proposal. Other then that, we enjoyed our trip very much.

Wonderful vacation

My significant other and I just returned from an 8 day/7 night stay at IGB. Upon arrival, the first thing you notice is the gorgeous lobby and hotel grounds. Judy made check-in an absolute breeze! We arrived before 3pm and lucky for us, our room was ready. We stayed in a lake-garden view suite with a beautiful view of the ship. The gentleman who helped with bringing our luggage to the room was an absolute pleasure! After arriving at our room, we met our butlers for the week, Alberto & Fremin. They treated us like royalty our entire stay. They are knowledgable, friendly, and professional.

We ate at the Surf and Turf, Mediterranean, Italian, and Japanese restaurants during our stay. We had breakfast every day at the buffet (Alba Rosa makes the best omlets!) and enjoyed lunch at the poolside grill or the outdoor buffet, La Perla. The buffets had a nice selection of food. Everyone we encountered always had a smile on their face and were helpful. Our chef at the Japanese restaurant (Mariano/Marino?) was our favorite. The food was good, it could be improved.

We stayed at the pool every day due to an increase in seaweed on the beach. However, our entire stay we noticed employees working tirelessly cleaning and removing seaweed from the beach. We encountered the best pool side service from everyone at the pool side bar and the waiters/waitresses, especially Hamlet, Lely, Tobia, Martha, and Carlos that ensured we always had a drink in our hands. They work so hard to provide the best service and never expected a tip (we always tipped them! They bust their butts and never complain!)

Side note: the towel game at the pool is insane. By time I would go out in the mornings at 7am, almost all the cabanas were taken. I quickly figured out that people take towels back to their room and come out before the towel hit opens at 7am. The hotel tries to keep up with this as I personally encountered them removing towels after a cabana was left vacant for 2 hours or more. On a lighter note, Anthony at the Pool Congiere was the best! By day 2 he was handing me a float to use in the pool.

I researched TripAdvisor for weeks before booking our trip and I can honestly say that I was not disappointed. The hotel and grounds are gorgeous, the people are fantastic, and the service is outstanding! I would recommend IGB to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation with great service.

Great beach and sea food.

At this all inclusive resort: beach has plenty shaded spots, white sand and great service. Restaurants are colorful of ambiance, food presentation and pleasant taste. But if you want to have a good room service: be aware of tipping high or you will be ignored. Entertainment was not bad. Enjoy you vacation.

The resort certainly lived up to 5 stars. Friendly and accommodating staff. The difference with this resort compared to others is the service...the staff doesn't t wait to service you, they are very proactive and look how they can accomdate you before you ask.
The restaurant s were excellent with impeccable service.
The beach area which my wife and I prefer was adequate but with most resorts in BAVaro area sea weed was non stop but the resort tried their best to keep the beach clean.

The pool area and accommodations were excellent. Pool bar staff and waiters were again all about excellent service! The only little issue at the pool area is you have to pick you spot early around 7 am and leave towels to reserve your spot. When I say small issue about reserving a spot , many guest reserve spots but don t use them the whole day and you see others looking and everything is taken. There is no policy regarding this that I could find and I saw some very aggravated guests.
Over all a great experience and would return in the future.
Lastly we had a third floor ocean view room which was comfortable private and clean!

This resort was awesome. The food, service and the staff was phenomenal. I loved my stay in Punta Cana. I can't wait to come back and enjoy myself again. Also take advantage of the restaurants on sight not just the buffet. The beaches are beautiful as well but watch out for the seaweed it can be a bit of a nuisance.
