Fodor's Review

Like its two sister resorts, this Spanish entry has panache—evidenced in its lobby, an artistic showpiece, and contemporary guest rooms with plush bedding—making it competitive with Punta Cana’s newer properties. The dramatic public spaces lead into grounds crisscrossed with lagoons and then a broad, beautifully maintained, white-sand beach, though it sometimes has gentle surf and an undertow. Although the public spaces of the three hotels in the complex still outshine the rooms, the Bávaro's suites are the sweetest (and most expensive), each with a separate sitting area. True to Iberostar's emphasis on food and beverages, there are 11 restaurants offering a variety of cuisines. The shows are better than average, with house dancers, a band, and vocalists; animation directors are fun and not too aggressive by day, either. The Iberostar’s Punta Cana and Dominicana share facilities in the complex, but only guests at the more expensive Bávaro can dine at its restaurants. Overall, guest comments are positive and many return, though the big push for guests to join the Iberostar Club is not always welcome.
