The largest section of the four-property Iberostar resort complex in Punta Cana, the Iberostar Selection Bavaro caters well to families with a plethora of activities. The other areas of the complex include the adults-only Grand Bavaro (Aa1) and the more economical Dominicana (Ba1) and Punta Cana (Ba1) sections. Only a few accommodations have ocean views and the food is just mediocre overall; but the property offers a superior fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment (it’s one of the best in the entire Caribbean), an excellent beachfront with a good amount of space and palapas for shade, a pool by the beach with small slides for kids and a swim-up bar, strong restaurant variety, separate kids and teens clubs with plenty of activities, an on-site casino, a good on-site golf course, a new spa with an extensive treatment menu, and fairly modern rooms. The on-site water sports center offers excellent scuba diving and snorkeling excursions, parasailing, jet skiing, banana boat rides, and windsurfing and sailing lessons. Other activities include stretching classes, riflery, archery, horseshoes, mini golf, beach volleyball, Spanish and dance classes, tennis lessons, and beach soccer. A friendly and interactive entertainment team keeps activities going throughout the day.
Free COVID-19 antigen tests are available on-site for all guests returning to the United States. PCR tests are also offered for a fee.
