Iberostar Bávaro Resort Review

Like its two sister resorts, this Spanish entry has panache, evidenced in its lobby, an artistic showpiece, and it's one of the better values among Punta Cana properties, though not one of the newest. The dramatic public spaces lead into grounds crisscrossed with lagoons and then broad, beautifully maintained white-sand beach. Although rooms don't compare with the public spaces of the three hotels in the complex, the Bávaro's are the sweetest (and most expensive), with a separate sitting area. True to Iberostar's emphasis on food and beverages, there are 11 restaurants, with a variety of cuisines, including Cajun and high-end gourmet. The shows are better than average, with house dancers, a band, and vocalists. The Iberostar Punta Cana and Iberostar 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.
