Fodor's Review

Like its two sister resorts, this Spanish entry has panache—evidenced in its lobby, an artistic showpiece, and newly refurbished guest accommodations with contemporary style and 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. 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), with a separate sitting area. True to Iberostar's emphasis on food and beverages, there are 11 restaurants, including Cajun and a gourmet room. The shows are better than average, with house dancers, a band, and vocalists. The Iberostars 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.
