All-inclusive rates cover all meals at seven traveler-approved restaurants and butler service
Some report hearing late-night noise inside suites above the nightclub
Overlooking Bávaro Beach from Punta Cana's popular resort strip, the adults-only, all-inclusive Iberostar Grand Bávaro earns high praise from previous guests, who claim they were treated like royalty at this stylish property. This Grupo Iberostar outpost's suites offer marble bathrooms with Jacuzzi tubs, flat-screen TVs, stocked minibars, free Wi-Fi access and 24-hour room, concierge and butler services. However, some past vacationers said the accommodations lack space and feature thin walls, so light sleepers may want to request a suite away from the property's nightclub. Additional on-site amenities include an 18-hole golf course, two fitness centers, an archery range and tennis and volleyball courts. For a more leisurely vacation, visitors can unwind at the full-service spa, lounge on the beach or go for a dip in one of three pools. When dinnertime rolls around, the resort touts seven restaurants, including two buffets and five a la carte eateries that serve everything from Italian fare to fresh seafood to teppanyaki-style Japanese cuisine. Overall, recent travelers were pleased with the selection, especially at the two buffet restaurants.

Prices are understandably higher, though they're not that much higher than at sister property Bavaro Suites. There's a ton of space for relaxing, especially at one of two pools and an extra wide stretch of beach.
