Built in 1997 and renovated in 2012, the Iberostar Bavaro has 75 bungalows in a pink, neo-classical three-storey building that is serviced by lifts. The entire complex contains 1,590 guest rooms and is set in a charming, vast tropical garden with flamboyant fountains and flower-lined paths. It's impossible to be bored here, with the sports areas, the gym (located above the spa with a panoramic sea view), the casino, the nightclub, and the daytime and evening entertainment in the theatre. Children can run wild at the kids club, equipped with a mini ping-pong table, mini billiard table, table football etc. There's also a trampoline for children to expend some of their energy. It's hard to resist the lagoon-like turquoise water of the superb swimming pool, with a coconut tree island in the centre. There is also a pool for children. The sun lounge around the poolside is equipped with deckchairs, mattresses, palm leaf parasols and showers. Towels are supplied at the pool. The Caribean Village is great for shopping, and also marks the border with the other Iberostar hotels.
