which older Iberostar is closest to the Grand?

We have friends who booked the Adults Only Grand for November. The price is really steep for my budget; so would like to choose one of the older ones to save money. Which is closest to the Grand? I know we can't go into their resort but can we use their beach?

Thanks for your help!

Bavaro is right next door.

You can walk on the beach, but can't use the chairs etc. Now they can come down to your resort and use the beach there.

I'm sure you'll be able to lay in their loungers and them yours on the beach.

The problem is that they will have to leave the grand to be with you, you may not see much of your friends

We were at IBB two years ago shortly after IBG opened and we could not use the loungers there. In fact they had a guard dressed in an all white uniform with gold braids and white safari hat to protect them from being used by anyone except IBG guests.

"I'm sure you'll be able to lay in their loungers and them yours on the beach."

No you won't be able to lay in thier loungers. They have a security guard and other measures to make sure you have the right arm band.

They will be able to lay in your loungers.

Iberostar 'defends' the Grand from those of us paying less and they should. Those loungers are much nicer then the Grand Loungers for example....

Years back we stayed at the Bavaro and it was considered the best Iberostar in Punta Cana, Now that the Iberostar Grand has opened and is considered the best, which would be the next best? Thanks

IBB would be the next best Iberostar to IB Grand, and it's still the best Iberostar in PC for folks traveling with kids.

We don't travel with kids, but don't mind them and really for our Christmas trip we want to avoid the "couples" feeling so we stay at Bavaro and have been very pleased. This will be our 3rd Christmas (out of the past 4. We spent one at an Iberostar in Mexico)
