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.

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.

Wi fi problem

Nice hotel, beautiful location, great food (except oriental restaurant which was a disappointment), friendly staff. Wi Fi didn’t work in the room - every time we needed internet connection we had to go to the reception area. This issue must be fixed by the management. Sea water was full of sea weeds - do not know if there is something hotel can do about this. The best restaurant on site is definitely Mexican. The worst - is oriental - food quality is far from any expectation.

This was not our first time staying at an Iberostar resort, but it turned out to be our least favorite. The main reasons we chose Iberostar were the activities program and bar program, and to be fair those items more than met with our satisfaction. But there were also 'attention to detail' issues that really should not happen in a resort of this supposed caliber. First off, the main desk was pretty much useless no matter what issue we asked for assistance with, and it would take multiple calls to get anything handled, if at all. Oh, they are great at promising the moon, but not so good on the follow-through. There was a night when our room wasn't cleaned during the day, and we desperately needed clean towels to shower and get ready for dinner: that issue took 5 calls over the course of 1.5 hours to get resolved. And they still wouldn't have the room serviced while we were at our dinner reservation. Any other hotel would have taken care of that in a snap. The room (Junior Suite) wasn't as promised and did not have a pull out couch for my son to use. He was left sleeping on a thin couch cushion set on top of a concrete platform, and it was hard and uncomfortable. When I asked for help at the front desk first I was told that I simply didn't know how to open the

Our 4th time to Iberostar Dominicana.

We just spent another wonderful week in Punta Cana. Rooms: We (2 adults 2 kids) stayed in a Junior Suite. If you don’t spend a lot of time in your room then the size is okay. If you have 2 adults and teens, I would suggest getting two rooms. Otherwise the rooms are 3.5 -4 star quality. Entertainment: We attended the shows every night and found them to be enjoyable. We really liked the couples contests. Activities: The beach volleyball is at the top of our list of great things to do. We enjoy socializing with others from around the world. Mostly South American countries: Argentina, Paraguay, Chile, Brazil, Uruguay and others from Switzerland and Germany. Although we don’t speak any Spanish (everyone else did) They welcomed us and made us feel as though we were part of their family. Hint for others from the USA- the rules for beach volleyball are well established (same rules we have seen for 4 years) by the people who vacation there for 3-4 weeks at a time. Their rules work well (1. No such thing as a lift; 2. no such thing as being in or over the net; 3. Score is kept in Spanish: 4. The winning team stays on the court until they lose. So please don’t show up, try to take over, and change how the games are played- just relax and have fun. Beach bar: On prior visits this was the best bar. Now sad to say the service at this bar has dropped substantially. Even tipping did not improve the service at this bar. So consider saving your tips for the staff that provide quality service. Food: We avoid the restaurants that require reservations. The buffets have improved and offer many options. We really enjoyed the friendly exceptional service provided by Akeny. The gym: new and very nice. If you like to keep up with your workouts while away from home this gym won’t disappoint. The peddlers on the beach are not confrontational. A polite “no thank you” and they move on.

beautiful resort, needs more staff?

I visited the Iberostar Dominicana with my wife and 2 children (9 & 11) for 5 days. The property is beautiful, from the grounds to the beach. The staff was wonderful and where great with the kids. I also felt secure enough to let my kids wonder to get something to eat on their own. We stayed in a junior suite, the room was clean but seemed a bit dated compared to other properties I have stayed. The food was par for all-inclusive resorts. Now for the things that could use improvement. - After we arrived we sat down to book our specially restaurants. We were told since we only booked 5 days, we could only choose one restaurant and all they had available was the French restaurant. That menu was not going to work for a 9 & 11 year old so after 3 days of going back and forth we received a reservation to the steak house. - Staff at the restaurants where good but in over their heads with the amount of people. At lunch you were lucky to get you first rounds of drinks or silverware. Dinner and breakfast was also the same way, if there was not allot of people service was good, but most of the time it was crazy busy and the staff was running around like a chicken with its head cut off. - Lack of lounge chairs. How can you have a resort this large without lounge chairs for everyone? This was true at the beach and the pool, if you did not mare a seat with your personal items by 10am you were out of luck. I spent hours sitting on the beach watching people aimlessly walking around looking for some place to sit. - Unfortunately my wife, son and I came down with diarrhea towards the end of the trip. I stopped by the store in the lobby to pick up some Imodium, and they wanted $27 USD for a small box of Imodium, the same box would cost under $10 at target. I understand having a markup on things but 200% mark up on something a lot of people will need geeze. All in all it was a good trip and I would recommend the resort as long as you 1) mark your lounge chair with a towel and personal item before breakfast. 2) Be ok eating at buffet and don’t mind waiting for service or you’re ok serving yourself. 3) Bring Imodium
