This was our 2nd time to the Grand Bavaro and it was just as fabulous as the first. We stayed at Iberostar Grand in January and returned the end of October to early November. Weather was terrific and experience was relaxing and enjoyable. We instantly recognized familiar faces to greet us and they recognized us! Abduhl greeted us getting out of the van and remembered our faces. Our room location was again on the outside perimiter in a standard room, 4th floor above the restaraunt side. It was quiet and secluded and we had outstanding butlers, Justof, Silvestor, Junior, and Starling. Many bubble baths and champagne and flowers awaited us each day after the beach. It was always a surprise. The workers all do such a good job to make our stay pleasant and memorable. When visiting the Surf and Turf restaraunt, Merari remembered us and greeted us with a warm welcome. This was our favorite place to eat! The servers in some of the restaraunts, Franklin, Hamlet , Brianda, Irbania, Yari, and Loraine were all wonderful. Always smiling and happy to help us ! This is our favorite Iberostar Grand resort, although they are all equally wonderful. The beach is beautiful, both seasons we visited. We will most definitely be back to visit!
We have been to this resort 4 times this year and are now reserved for February 2020. We cannot get enough of the staff here at this location led my Mini Me, Armando and Yocairi.
The most amazing people you will ever find.
