My wife and I spent a wonderful week at this resort. The staff could not have been friendlier, and everyone was very eger to please. Guest services was very good, and everyone I spoke to spoke fluent English. The only minus were the beds, not very lush, much too firm. Our room was great, very close to the pool, &...

OK, first of all, rest assured that this resort is very nice. I read the reviews prior to going and I can honestly tell you that the people who wrote them lead a rather negative life in general. 8 of us went together and all in all, this resort was an amazing value for the price paid. People seem to...

Six of us stayed from Jan 19 for 1 week. If the ifa was smart they would have a few more English speaking people on staff. That was the biggest problem. My tour company said this place had construction completed Dec. 15 2007 but that is totally false. Ther are 2 buildings that have 40 rooms each that are by...

My husband and I stayed at the IFA Villages January 19-26 and loved it. After reading reviews I was a little scared but kept an open mind and was happy with our decision. They are not a 5 start but they never claim to be, which is fine. The resort is not as large as I was picturing it from...

Let me just start by saying that I have been to Punta Cana every year (sometimes twice a year) for the past 9 years so I have stayed at many hotels and generally know what to expect. With that being said, Ifa Bavaro was very different from other places. We sometimes felt that we landed in a twilight zone or...

Three of us went (booked two rooms) January 10 - 17, 2008. Needed to get away from the winter and cold, wanted a reasonably priced trip, and also a trip that could fit into our schedules in terms of dates.

This was a 1 week vacation we had traveled with another couple that was staying for 2 weeks.

Anything that dropped on the roof or birds on the roof we heard it...
