IFA Villas Bavaro Resort & Spa Review

If you are looking for a cheap all-inclusive, come to IFA, which has already been discovered by herds of cost-cutting international tourists as well as Dominicans. The beach is beautiful, with warm white sand and pale turquoise water, and snorkel gear, kayaks, and other nonmotorized water sports are included. Rinse off in one of the three inviting pools. Extensive day and night activity programs keep children and active adults busy. The nine restaurants will keep you fueled, but get reservations early if you want a seat at one of the à la carte ones. One of the best is the poolside pizzeria. Rooms and villas look much better on the Web than in person. The complex houses a fully-equipped spa, a gym, an attractive outdoor roofed theater and a new medi-spa.
