The Iberostar Grand opened in December of 2008 and is fabulous. The resort is adult only and has 260 junior suites. The resort is rated Number 1 by Trip Advisor in Punta Cana. Before I get specific with the Grand, I’d like to decode the dining policy at the Iberostar complex. To begin with, there are four resorts at the complex: Punta Cana, Dominicana, Bavaro, and the Grand. The Grand is adults only and has 4 restaurants: Asian (with teppanaki and sushi), surf and turf, Italian, and French. There are no dining restrictions and only guests at the Grand can eat at the Grand. Guests at the Grand can eat at any of the restaurants at the complex. Dining reservations can be made for the stay upon arrival with the guest’s butler or concierge. 24 hour room service is also available at the Grand. The resort has a gorgeous beach and a lovely pool area with plenty of cabanas. Waiters circulate through the pool and beach area and offer drinks, cool towels, and treats. All of the rooms are the same size with view being the only difference (Garden view, Ocean view, and Ocean front). The rooms have elegant decor with large bathrooms and a two person Jacuzzi with a view. The Jacuzzi is enclosed in glass and can be seen from the balcony. Free WIFI is available throughout the resort.
Iberostars are known for their entertainment and the Grand doesn’t disappoint. There are 6 bars and lounges, a large air conditioned plush theater for nightly shows, and a disco on the Galleon ship in the lagoon. The resort serves super premium brand liquor and has a beer menu with 13 options! There is an oceanfront spa and nice fitness center. Guests at the Grand get free golf at the PB Dye designed championship course onsite. The amount of golf is determined by length of stay. Guests staying 5 nights and longer receive 2 rounds of golf per person. Guests staying 1-4 nights receive 1 round of golf per person (golf promotion subject to change).
Overall, the Iberostar Grand Bavaro is an amazing resort and one of the nicest in Punta Cana. This would be a great choice for active honeymooners and golfers. It would be perfect for an incentive trip as well.
