The resort which wears the "Crown" within the Iberostar Bavaro complex. And furthermore one of the outstanding hotels which contributed to Iberostars receiving the highest achievement by Apple Vacations. The Crystal Apple Award for best All-Inclusive Hotel Chain which Iberostar has coveted for the last 4 of 5 consecutive years.. This hotel is nothing less than stunning, an example of Iberostar's flair for fabulous design, the art, the sculptures, the ambiance and appealing decor in all restaurants, the huge lagoon size pool----all speaks quality and magnitude, which and magnitude, which is the signature of Iberostar.
A huge skeleton of a whale carved from wood, a wall which transforms into a waterfall, an old Chevy car - all part of the visual delights you'll see within an array of buffet and a la carte restaurants throughout the whole complex. And to top it off, a disco which is in theme of an old DC6 airplane, with the cone as the DJ booth, the wings as the bar counters - the imagination runs wild in this incredible Resort!
And of course, what would a Resort of such splendor be on anything else but the best beach in Punta Cana. Bavaro Beach with white silk sand and dreamy turquoise Sea. Villas are set in abundant gardens of tropical flowers, lagoons, soaring palms. You will be reluctant to leave, it's a promise.
