Iberostar Grand Hotel Bavaro Ocean Front Suites?

We are booked for a week at Grand Hotel Bavaro in Ocean Front Suite and am looking for the "straight scoop" from anyone how has stayed there. Are they really ocean front or just ocean view? How many steps to the water? Bar close by?

Thanks!

Spent 2 weeks in one and they are as close to the ocean as you can get. Much larger balcony than others. Furthest from lobby but the resort is very compact. hope you get up floors as ground floor has view blocked by hedge.

I have sent to your inbox a slideshow which will give you a better idea. We had second floor and no complaints and very short walk to beach.

There are only 12 oceanfront suites I believe if you truly booked oceanfront and not oceanview. Big difference...and really big difference in price! If you booked oceanfront, you are one lucky vacationer!

However anyone who vacations there, oceanfront or not is in for a real treat!

Have you been to this one? How was the one in Cancun?

I've been to "The Royal" in Cancun and thought it was awesome.

Twice....looking forward to my third visit in 2013. Possibly my favorite resort..tossup with Iberostar Grand Paraiso...just returned from that resort last week.

Iberostar Cancun was a beautiful family resort. I'm more of an adult only kind of gal. We had a beautiful time there tho. Met lots of nice people from other Iberostars.

Ihave never stayed OF at Iberostar Grand Bavaro but it must be pretty spectacular...so is the price tag!
