When Lopesan Costa Bavaro Resort, Spa & Casino invited me and my family out to experience their five-star luxury resort, how could I turn that offer down? After all, it’s been 3 months since I gave birth to our firstborn, our daughter Mila Jo. At this point, I was ready for a trip and there was no other perfect place than in the Dominican Republic. The Dominican Republic would be Mila’s first international trip to one of her motherland countries. It was an easy 4-hour nonstop plane ride from Boston to Punta Cana and Mila slept the whole flight, thanks to her travel headphones.
Once we landed, we were greeted by our transportation arranged by the hotel. It’s about a 30 min ride to the hotel from Punta Cana International Airport (PUJ).
Lopesan Costa Bavaro Resort, Spa & Casino is a five-star, upscale all-inclusive resort located on Bavaro Beach, voted one of the top 25 beaches in the world. I love that this resort has the best of both worlds, there’s adult only options but also family-friendly options. The resort opened in 2019 but closed shortly due to Covid and reopened in 2021. Everything is modern and new, I love the boho aesthetic throughout the resort. This resort has a total of 1,042 guest rooms and suites and 3 categories to choose from! The 3 categories are: The Resort, Adults-Only, and Unique Club.
We had a Unique Club room and it came with so many perks, including a private check-in area. We were greeted with champagne and check-in was so smooth, we got our wristbands so we can access our room. Our wristband acted as a room key so no worries losing a keycard. Once we got to our UNIQUE Junior Suite Oceanview room, our butler Xavier came and greeted us. I was amazed that they had set up a crib for us in the room for Baby Mila. Our butler was so sweet and made sure we had a case of water to make baby Mila’s formula bottles. Having a butler is one of the many perks of choosing a UNIQUE category. You also get a private beach area, dining, and a dedicated UNIQUE-only pool. Staying in a UNIQUE room, you will automatically have access to the spa’s exclusive hydrotherapy pool as well. Xavier also helped us download the resort app to make all our dinner reservations easy, we got reservations for all the restaurants we wanted. We ended up picking to dine at their Italian restaurant Gondola, French restaurant La Boheme, Inari for some hibachi, and El Charro their Mexican restaurant. Everything was beyond delicious and fresh. The chocolate bomb at El Charro is a must-get, they pour hot chocolate over a chocolate ball, and inside is a delicious carrot cake.
When I tell you this resort has EVERYTHING, I mean IT! With amenities like a bowling alley, arcade, water park, spa, kid/teen club, casino, and an ice cream parlor the property is the perfect family getaway that both adults and kids will love. Discover THE BOULEVARD at the Lopesan Costa Bavaro Resort Spa & Casino, an area with tons of shops, restaurants, bars, and more are located. We loved our daily walks to The Boulevard to the coffee shop Bavaro to get iced coffees, it was the perfect start to our morning. You can’t go bored on The Boulevard as the casino, gym, spa, and bowling alley are also located there.
Lopesan Resort is on a stunning beach with 7 onsite restaurants, 12 bars/lounges, 4 pool bars, and 7 swimming pools available! Our favorite restaurant was the Beach Club which is only available to people who are staying in a UNIQUE room. The beach club was my favorite because there was Lobster for lunch and dinner, a Lobster lover’s true dream. It is truly a paradise gem that you all need to add to your travel list. I couldn’t get over how the service and staff were all so nice. I will for sure be taking my family back to Lopesan Costa Bavaro.
Lopesan Costa Bavaro offers a unique getaway filled with family-friendly options or an adult-only escape. With dozens of amenities to fit any vibes, the property is the best place to unwind or experience a little adventure!
