IFA Villas Bavaro Resort & SPA Reviews – Dominican Republic Hotels – IFA Villas Bavaro Resort & SPA

Arrival: February 7 to 14 Arrived at the airport at 10 a.m. Went through customs really quickly and picked-up our luggage, also really quickly. Got to the Hotel within approximately 30 minutes after leaving the airport at approximately 1:00 p.m. Checked-in quickly, but had to wait until 3:00 p.m. to get our room as it was getting cleaned. Rooms Very very nice room and very clean. Air conditioning was a bit noisy, but it was working. Room was pretty sound proof as we could not hear any noise other than, once during the room, partyers coming late. First day after we got there, our room was not cleaned until 5:00 p.m. I had left 10 pesos (thinking it was worth approx. 3$ US) Next day, I left 3$ US, and each morning after also, and our room was cleaned ealier every day. Restaurants and Bars There were 3 a la carte restaurants, all very good. There were 3 bars (including one on the beach) and there was also one in the pool. There was a buffet at lunch time on the beach, which was excellent. There were two buffets for breakfast and for dinner, on the resorts, one of which was not open for lunch. The food was always warm and fresh. It was also good. They had a good variety although I did not taste everything (I’m fussy). However, we have no complaints about the food. Beach/Pools/Grounds Grounds were kept so clean. Every morning, the ladies were wahsing the grounds with javex and water and brooming. I have never seen a resorts so clean, including restrooms. There were 3 pools, all of them very clean and beautiful. The main pool was busier as the animation was there. The other two pools were more quiet. Chairs vere almost always available except for those ones which are reserved (pair of sandals on them) and not used all day long. Some of the tourists are irrespectful in that manner. Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel There was always some kind of animation on the beach and at the pool which was interesting to watch or to participate. Shows at night were ok although not as interesting from one night to the other. Animation staff was always very pleasant. Other Comments In general, I was happily surprised with this resort and would recommend it anytime. It was in fact, the best place I have been to. However, I was happy to be staying in the Village part and not the villas section as the villas were far away from the activities and the beach. But there was a little train going by all day long.
