We had two weeks here Dec 2016 the bedding was stained the edge of the duvet moldy, The pools no umbrellas. The tour rep promised to sort a few things out but didn't. When it rained it came in through the bathroom light and took three days to get repaired. The beach was a mile away although a buggy took...

I'm not sure what is with all the bad reviews. My boyfriend and I just got back yesterday from a weeks stay at IFA and we quite enjoyed it. First of all, the resort is huge. We stayed in the 1200 block which was the farthest distance from the beach, however there are buggies that run frequently that will take...

This resort was ok. My husband and I stayed for a week in January. If you're looking for a fancy, upscale hotel, this is not it, however the beach is beautiful, the food is good and the hotel is clean. I would recommend that you pay a little extra for a "superior" room - these rooms have just been renovated...

My parents went to this hotel two years in a row. I had a blast at this hotel. My personal tip is, Don't just read those negative commenta. People are...

Great holidays! We spent 7 days at Ifa villas bavaro between 2 friends. Staff really nice & friendly. Nice room, not closed to the playa but really calm. Good food & beverage. Not perfect but really good for the price.

First of all, we are a young couple (25 yo each) who spent 7 days in Punta Cana. From the beginning we were impressed by the size of the Ifa complex. It is a big resort with gardens, 2 swimming pools, jacuzzys, every 3 min walk you will find a new bar. Employees are very nice and respectful. We didn't...

Resort was just okay. When we were there, there was a lot of construction on the site close to the pizzeria and pool. We tried not letting it get to us but at the end of the day, we were on vacation and did not want to hear all that noise. The staff were miserable. I know how hard they...
