Iberostar Dominicana GREAT for families
NANCY Y.
Jul 10 2018
I would recommend this hotel to families. There is much for kids to do (Kids camp, pool games, beach games). However teens will struggle with things to do. Couples looking for a romantic getaway this is not the place. I also don't like restaurants having a "dress code" for people on vacation. The seafood restaurant was terrible. Our lobster bisque soup with crab consisted of a bowl of various seafood items, then staff poured in this green substance. I guess lobster bisque means something different in Punta Cana. The buffet restaurants were good. The staff are excellent. We did not book any excursions, because I read on-line that Scape Park is pretty much what they try and sell you and it can get quite crowded and unorganized. We did a day trip to Fun Fun cave that was amazing. We also did a zip line course that rivals Costa Rica.

Good: The staff was great everywhere: maid service, restaurant and bar staff, entertainment. The beach was beautiful. There was seaweed, but that is just a part of nature. Areas To Improve: The rooms are dated. The bed and pillows wer comfortable. There was only one outlet in the bathroom and only one under the nightstand. This was annoying. The liquor was 90% off brands. There was no Bacardi or Captain Morgan and the Vodka selection was weak. The only beer was Presidente. The pool did not have built in loungers so you can be comfortable and cool in the water. I've never been to a resort that doesn't have them. The steak restaurant was very good. The omelette and pasta bars were good. The cooks worked very hard! The fresh fruit and bread were delicious. The rest of the food was just OK. After 2 times in Punta Cana and several in Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Cozumel, I prefer Mexico.

The pros, friendly attentive staff. The room comfortable, weak air. The food average seems the same at all hotels. The strength of the alcohol week same as all the others. The service always excellent. Cant blame the staff for owners policies. The beach however is beautiful but the palapas are so close together there is no sun to tan in. So basically you need two spots one for shade then move to the end of the palapas to see the sun.

We LOVE the Iberostar! 1st time we stayed at the Punta Cana, this time we were in the Dominica. Both rooms were well appointed, buffet food was good. French and American food was horrible. Steak house was awesome. Pools are HUGE with a great party atmosphere. Beach was a bit crowded, but get there early and reserve a good spot and you're set for the day. Would we go back? In a heartbeat!

Pool and beach good. Horrible food, entertainment and service.
WILLIAM H.
Feb 19 2018
Pool, beach and bar areas all good. Hotel was adequate after switching rooms because the bathtub wouldn't drain and bathroom door wouldn't close. New room had a fridge that didn't work. Asked for it to be replaced and that never happened. Food entertainment and service all unacceptable. No one at this resort speaks English and all entertainment is in Spanish. Tipped people over $200 on this trip and was thanked for such less than half the time. Not even eye contact from bar tenders and a head nod half the time. Nothing but buffett food for breakfast and lunch. Even the restaurants offered up sub par food. Only good meal I got all week was in sea food restaurant surf and turf. This was followed up by a 40 minute wait for desserts than never showed up. The shady casino is another story into itself. Only casino I've played at in my life where a 21 on blackjack can lose if the dealer has a 21. Asked for an explanation on this and I was greeted with a no hablo English. This was honestly the worst vacation of my life and wouldn't return to this place if it was FREE. My vacation time is priceless and should have obviously paid more and went somewhere else. I discounted bad reviews I read about this place but honestly. They weren't bad enough.

Nice if you’re on a budget

The hotel was clean and the staff was nice. The food was not great and I got really sick about half way into the vacation. The beach was packed! You have to get there before 9am if you want even the slightest chance of getting a chair. So much seaweed too. We had a handful of Maintenance issues in our room (mini fridge didn’t work, toilet ran constantly, and the radio was busted). They didn’t fix anything when we asked. We did love the spa though and spent a lot of time there. The fitness center was also very nice. Drinks were okay and the service at the restaurants was fine. Nothing special.

This place is gorgeous! Amazing surroundings. I was here for a friends destination wedding. There is a lot to do at this hotel. They make sure to keep you entertained. We did it all-inclusive style. I would recommend eating at the restaurants at the hotel as much as possible. I liked those better than the buffet. Something they don't tell you is how fast the restaurants book up! You need a reservation almost 2 days in advance, which was a bit annoying. So make sure you call and make the reservations or do it when you get there ASAP! The staff is very friendly and accommodating. I would go back with a significant other or friends!

Great hotel, great holidays

We booked 2 weeks in this hotel (nov 2018), and it was great. The gardens are fantastic. Heavens on earth, with lots of palmtrees, all very well taken care of. The service at the many restaurants is great, the staff does its job with a big smile. It was so pleasant to start each day in this good atmosphere. Waiters were singing sometimes. It. The room was great. The airco a bit too noisy so we switched it off at night, leaving the ceiling fan on. We were scared of the weather forecast but we ve had actually only one raining day, and we didn't feel at all it was wasted. The sun was so hot ! Even more than in Australia ! The gym is well fitted. Lots of treadmills, elliptics, and freeweighs. Opening up at 6am, closing at 7pm. With a proper airco, it was a real pleaser to use it. We enjoyed the separate free restaurants. We were allowed 6 times in these during our stay. It was a nice break out of the usual other big restaurants. We enjoyed the french one the most. We enjoyed the violin player in the evening before going to dinner. The purpose of our holidays was to get rested and have a nice cut from work, and this was achieved. We were impressed again by the garderner's work, and the great atmosphere in the restaurants. All the rest of our days were at the swimming pool, or at the very close beach. The 6 hours jet lag was a bit hard on us. We could easily go at the breakfast at 6.30am (though it officialy opens at 7), but waiting for the dinner at 6.30pm was a bit hard (midnight for us). We re very happy we found this hotel, we knew of iberostar in tunisia (djerba) but this one in punta cana was so much better that the one in djerba. we will probably come back.why take the risk of finding a lesser hotel !

Perfect 2 week vacation......my second home!

This is my favorite hotel in Punta Cana. I have been going to this city for over 20 years and I have stayed in many Hotels but now that I have returned to the Iberostar I am done trying different hotels. Most of the guests who are at this hotels are repeaters, they have been coming to this hotel for years and I understand why. I have written many reviews on this hotel so I am not going to write an extensive review except to say that all the negative points I brought up during my visit in May 2018 have been corrected. The issues with the beach restaurant during the lunch hour and the service have been eliminated, they now have one main entrance to the restaurant and the hostess seats you, so that you don't wander aimlessly looking for a table. The service and the staff are great, they remember you from your last visit. They make it a point to remember what you like to drink. The same goes for the main buffet as well. Restaurants: We only dined at the steakhouse because it is our favorite, while we were there it was closed because they were doing some renovations so the seafood and the steakhouse restaurants used the same area and they interchanged every other day. It still one of my favorite restaurants but the meat was a little over cooked even though we asked for medium. Entertainment: I love the shows that they put on, from the Lion King, to Boogie show , to Las Vegas, Michael Jackson to the new Rock show they are all great and for those of you who don't want to watch the shows you can always go to the Punta Cana side and listen to the live band. Animation: What a great group of people, Evelyn is just amazing, she has been there for over 6 years and remembers us each time. Shout out to Cocoa at the towels,Shampu Alfredo, Joshua, etc..they work hard to entertain the guests. Bars: No issues, again most of the staff saw us repeatedly especially at the lobby bar and new exactly what we wanted. Beach: beautiful, they have a truck that rakes the seaweed and they do an excellent job of making sure that it is all removed but compared to some of the other Hotels like the Bahibe this hotel has minimal seaweed, I walked the beach every morning so I know! My only suggestion would be, NEW CHAIRS!!! most of the chairs are broken and uncomfortable. Also maybe adding a few more huts. Food: This hotel has one of the best variety of food. The quality is great, the beef is amazing. Yes they repeat some items but it is normal, some people want, pizza, pasta, burgers but there is enough variety to satisfy everyone. People need to remember that they in Punta Cana not at a 5 start James Beard restaurant. What they offer is over and above most hotels so stop complaining. Pools: for those of your looking for a swim up bar in the pool this is NOT the hotel for you, go next door to their sister hotel, the Bavaro. Be prepared that as of Friday 3:00 pm the locals arrive and stay until Sunday around noon. The hotel goes from being relatively quiet to super busy, the buffet is packed, the staff is struggling to keep up with the demand because as soon as they replace an item it is gone within seconds. Most of the chairs at the theatre are taken and they just continue to add chairs to make their party bigger and bigger thus limiting your view of the show. Overall I will just say that I am biased, I love this place and already planning my next trip. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

Excellent, Almost perfect with couple minor changed needed

We stayed there 5 nights- Oct 24-29th., We were a group of 9 with 4 rooms. We requested 4 rooms together and we got 4 rooms in building 4 on second floor from 4158-4170- excellent view facing the pools and grounds The price was very reasonable Starting with check-in which was quick, efficient and all 4 rooms were ready at 2pm. Our customer service rep got us 3 specialty restaurants dinner reservations after we finished check-in and we all got a welcome drink- perfect start for our vacation We were slightly disadvantaged not being able to speak Spanish, but no big deal. Every employee we met at Dominicana resort was excellent, so friendly and helpful. They couldn't do enough to please you. None of us could understand some of the negative review we read before going. The people whats makes this special. Our rooms were large and clean. Beds comfortable-No issues what so ever. Mini-fridge restocked daily. Food was excellent from the breakfast buffet, beach BBQ lunches, to specialty restaurants and buffet diners. All 9 of us ages 12-58 rated food excellent, lots of choices.... how can some reviews complain?? The grounds were gorgeous and well maintained. Pools very nice. Beach was beautiful, water temperature perfect. No issues with any seaweed. We went to the beach after breakfast 8-9am and every day were were able to find available chairs under cover. Reserving sailboats or kayaks was easy. The activity crew does a very good job with getting people involved and active. The evening shows were very good and entertaining most nights Every Bartender at all bars were super friendly and drinks served quickly. Never waited more then a minute or two for a drink. excellent service We were asked about vacation club presentation, we declined. No pressure There are various vendors selling their wares and services at the beach, everyone went away with a quick and friendly "No Thanks". Remember Folks- its their beach and country and they are just trying to make a living. Check-out was also perfect, quick, friendly and no issues. We had a 4pm flight home, we checked out by 12, then had lunch at the beach and had plenty time to spare for 1pm shuttle back to airport. Overall, we all had an excellent vacation and would highly recommend Iberostar Dominicana. The staff was excellent with a smile. We gave out tips the last day to employees who made our vacation special. At no time did we feel pressured to tip. Service was not effected. These employees do a great job a deserve a little appreciation. There are two minor things we think could be improved; 1-alcoholic drinks were delicious and plentiful, but we think alcohol content was weak. 2- smoking is allowed at resort. Personally we are non-smokers and hate the smoke and smell. One night at show we all had to leave early because the cigar smell was so nasty. 4 other tables left too .This also happened at lunch one day. Maybe smokers can have there own section. in 2018 everyone is aware of smoking dangers and should not subject others to their own bad habits and health hazards.

perfect vacation
