Editor’s Review of IBEROSTAR Bavaro

Editor’s Rating 4/5 Unlike Cancun, where high-rise hotels crowd the coast and millions of bodies find their own speck of sand, Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic still has the feel of a beach area that's recently been discovered. In the popular coastal community of Bavaro, the palm trees and beach extend for miles, so it's easy to leave civilization behind if you wander far enough. With its soft white sand and turquoise waters, this Caribbean outpost is an ideal spot to escape your winter blues and whisk away a week in the hot sun.

Spanish-owned IBEROSTAR has four hotels in one complex with some 1,500-plus rooms total, however only three of those hotels are appropriate for families. They include the IBEROSTAR Dominicana, IBEROSTAR Bavaro, and
... more IBEROSTAR Punta Cana. The Grand Hotel is an adults-only property, but take note mom and dad: the restaurants there are available for a romantic night out without the kids.

Each resort has succeeded in creating a tropical paradise, where flamingoes and ibises run free under thickets of palms on the manicured grounds. Unlike other all-inclusives, where the same choice of food is served everyday at one buffet, the BEROSTAR has seven different restaurants at their Bavaro Resort alone, including Japanese, seafood and gourmet choices. Since Punta Cana is pretty much devoid of culture and sightseeing, there's little to tear you away from the swim-up bar -- a favorite of adults and kids alike, who float over to order limonata and chocolate batidas (milk shakes).

All 592 rooms are junior suites with two double beds, a sunken sitting area, and a patio or balcony depending on the floor. They are separated into oceanfront, ocean front superior, superior, family suite and spa suite categories. All have mini-bars, coffee makers and beach towels. Bathrooms have both a shower and a tub, with dispensers offering soap and shampoo, but guests need to bring conditioner. Rooms are spacious, with just the right amount of closet space and dressers. The mini-bar is replenished daily with water, soda, and other drinks. There's also an iron and ironing board if you need to tidy up. Kids can watch Nickelodeon and Disney and other satellite channels on the flat-screen TV. There's a safe in the room, but you have to ... more get a key from the front desk and you're charged an extra $4 a night to use it.

Take advantage of the complimentary bottles of water in the bathroom for brushing teeth. The water in the guestrooms is not potable.

For mothers traveling alone with the kids, you'll notice that peep holes are not provided in the doors for additional security, although the windows are positioned where you can see who is at the door before opening.

Wi-Fi is free throughout the property. However, you should pack a two-pronged adapter for any of your three-pronged electronics. If you forget, they are for sale in the gift shop for less than $1.

All rooms are furnished with an oversized umbrella just in case of rain, but you may want to pack another one for the family. Afternoon or evening showers are brief, but common throughout the year.

If your children require naps at a certain time of day, you can schedule housekeeping services so that there's no chance they will interrupt during nap time.
