Welcome to paradise to the umpteenth degree, where luxury is a standard. It's an adults-only resort where the very best is included. From the "Grand Star Service" with butlers at your beck and call to a concierge service that'll make you a reservation at one of the four a la carte restaurants. And the wow-factor doesn't stop there. The Greco-roman style with wooden decks throughout the hotel and a replica of the Spanish Galleon as a music bar are nothing short of spectacular. At Iberostar Grand Hotel Bavaro the reality surpasses the dream.
You'll find Iberostar Grand hotel at playa Bavaro, not too far away from Punta Cana International Airport. It has everything you'd expect from one of the best tourist destination in the Caribbean. Water sports center offering aqua adventures, glass bottom boat rides and scuba doo which is almost like having you own little personal submarine to explore the wonderful marine life underneath. Plus, restaurants and bars, souvenir shops, beauty parlors at Bavaro Plaza, not to mention the breathtaking beach and more. Playa Bavaro is a world of pleasure for about two million tourists every year and the number keeps growing.
Guests who stay at the Grand Hotel Bávaro, will enjoy one free round of golf per person for stays of 3 to 4 nights, two free rounds of golf per person for stays of 5 to 13 nights and 4 free rounds of golf per person for stays of 14 nights or more. Green fees, golf cart, snacks and beverages are all included. Additional rounds of golf are available for $49 per person per round and are payable directly to the hotel.
