Majestic Elegance or Iberostar Grand Bavaro for young couple

We are currently trying to decide between the Iberostar Grand Bavaro or Majestic Elegance (in an Elegance Club Junior Suite) for 8 nights this May.

We are a couple in our late 20's, and while most of the time we will be relaxing and taking it easy, we want to be able to party with other young people at night. Great food and drinks are also important to us.

From reading reviews, it sounds like the service and food etc at the Iberostar Grand is superior, however we still do want the option of some night life. We'd have the option of going across to the Iberostar Bavaro (do many people do this?), or would the Majestic Elegance be better suited?

Happy with the price of either - it's more important to choose the right place for us (it's our five year wedding anniversary too).

Any thoughts appreciated!

Happy Anniversary. If the cost is insignificant, I would go to Iberostar Grand. Like you said, you can go to the other IB's for entertainment/nightlife. The Majestic Elegance is nice (we just returned), but the Grand would definately be a step up.

I've only stayed at the Iberostar Grand Bavaro and it was excellent. As for nightlife, they have a lobby bar that was pretty lively and the theatre with shows at night which was good enough for us (but we're older than you). As you've already researched, it would be easy enough to go over to the Iberostar Bavaro for more action and I'm sure that people who like to party more than us, do that! That being said, however, I've heard great things about the Majestic Elegance too so, I'm sure you'd be happy with either choice.

I had your dilemma as well. My husband and I are staying at the Iberostar Grand Hotel in May for 6 nights, and I, too, had a hard time choosing because just like you we wanted to spend some relaxing time but also wanted to have some partying fun too. I ended up going with the Iberostar Grand Bavaro simply because there seemed to be nothing negative about it. We figured we could head over to the "Imagine" night club or Una Mas if we need to find some party happy people. Hoping I made the right choice. Good luck with yours.

My husband and I also had the same dilemma. Food (lobster) and drinks are important to us as well. We decided to go with the iberostar grand. The woman we booked with had been there and had nothing but good things to say. We will be there for our anniversary in May. I hope we made the right choice. I think we did. I can't wait. Happy travels!!!

My wife and I are 28 and we are booked for our second trip to IBG this June. It is truly a fantastic place. We are big time into the relaxing part of vacation not as much into the casino , party route. However the Iberostar complex has all of that to offer. You will love this place.
