My wife and I have have stayed at the IB Bavaro for five (5) times in the past 12 years or so. The IB Bavaro property has immaculately manicured grounds that surround the property (and adjacent Punta Cana and the Dominicana sections). The service, food, ambience at the IB Bavaro are exceptional (as well as the other IB resorts in Mexico that we have stayed at). This year however, we chose to do something different, not necessarily better (although time will tell). This year in August we are booked for four (4) nights at The Sanctuary, and then we will transfer to the NOW Larimar Resort for six (6) nights.
If you choose the IB Bavaro, then you made a wise choice.
Now Larimar will not be as nice, Sanctuary is.
My question is why change?
