Staff working in the reception, restaurants, etc. were all friendly. A lot of them spoke English and tried hard to communicate if they weren't too good with the language. Check in was good because of our later flight. Our room was one of the superior rooms in the newer buildings, overall, our building was in a good location. In between...

I had very high hopes for this hotel and this was my 29th trip to Dominican Republic. I guess I am a very trusting person but I had 520 dollars stolen from my room. If it was the cleaning staff they didn't even clean my room the day it was taken. On my check out I reported it and they...

IFA Bavaro Resort & Spa is an All-Inclusive in Punta Cana. The resort is a good moderately priced resort with great potential. During my visit the hotel was undergoing a great deal of renovations that when finished will definitely improve the value to its guests. IFA is a good sized resort with 652 rooms currently. Once the renovations are finished...

If you go here don't get the regular rooms, get the upgraded. The older rooms are problematic and need to be avoided . We had so many problems no a/c no water ,no towels ,ants , water leaking everywhere in our room. If you have these issues don't expect management to help. No one cared! But Luckily the food was...
