In perfect harmony with the environment, Iberostar Hacienda Dominicus is comprised of eight bungalow-type two story buildings surrounded by extensive tropical gardens. Beautifully set on a sandy beach framing the Caribbean, the Iberostar Hacienda Dominicus claims the same outstanding features which make IBEROSTAR Resorts so popular among Apple Vacationers. Step into the lobby and you'll see why; life size cattle and horses of sculptured iron, and an authentic wooden sugarcane splicer used to make molasses lend flavor to Dominican lifestyle. Lagoons with fountains deliver soothing sounds in harmony with a sensational visual of flourishing gardens, bursting into bloom. Villa style blocks of rooms surround one of three swimming pools.

Designed with both couples and families with children in mind, the entertainment program includes activities for young and older alike, all led by skilled, professional staff.

This was not what I would consider a 5-Star hotel experience. The service was poor, the food was good but my children got sick, and they could not accommodate us properly. On the Apple Vacations website it listed the junior suite as able to room up to 5 people but this was incorrect. When we got to the hotel they told us the room only holds up to 4 people and they brought in a cot which made the room very small and was very uncomfortable. While we were there we were not able to go to our room for a day because they had to fumigate the building because of pests. I would not recommend this resort to anyone and will not be using Apple Vacations to book anymore of my vacations. I plan on calling Iberostar because I feel as if they need to know what is going on.

Went to the beach. When came back found the bathroom door locked. We could not open it. Took 3 calls and 2 hours to have technician come in and unlock the door. The majority of the staff does not understand English. Contacted concierge 3 times to bring a piece of hand soap. First request was ignored. After second request we were brought hangers. After the third one, shower gel. Luckily, we were in the room when the maid brought shower gel and I showed to her what we were looking for.

The bed and pillows are like racks-we woke up everyday with neck/back pain. The buffet food was above average. The sprinkled the lawns around 8:30-9 am with stinky water. The beach was excellent. The drinks at the bars were not drinkable, we just drank beer and house wine.

From the moment we walked in the door, the staff at Iberostar Hacienda Dominicus treated us wonderfully. We had requested a king room and had to change rooms after one night because they were full and we wanted to be in the same building as our friends. The food was generous and our Apple contact gave us practical advice and recommended 2 really fun excursions based on our interests.

We've stayed in numerous Iberostar's. This resort is older, maintained well except for the pool area. Pool was clean just old and need of updates. Maid/room service was poor at best. Upon arrival we had a dirty sheet on our bed and used water bottle in our room, hard to feel comfortable after that experience. Restaurant service was wonderful, food good!

I like the colonial feeling of this hotel. When I go to the Caribbean, I want to see the warm colors and fabrics this hotel does so well. Very friendly and hard working staff-one of the beast things here. Beautiful beach/pool. Specialty restaurants were very good-enjoyed El Colonial and La Geisha the most. The food selection and quality at the buffets was only fair. Pasta sauces all need a new recipe! That should be easy to fix. The food should be presented more attractively, especially the salads and hot food. The concierge idea didn't work well for us. The man was very pleasant but he continually hounded us to attend a "presentation" for a timeshare/discount plan that would give him points to make more money. Please! Just pay him more money to leave us alone!

Not what I expected from Iberostar

I booked this stay in the DR after a positive experience at another Iberostar in Riviera Maya, Mexico. Some positives: gorgeous beach, great housekeeping, friendly reception and concierge, and comfortable accomodations. Some negatives: Kid's program did not appear to have a set schedule of operations the week we were there, to the point where we had to complain to reception; lack of variety of food at the dinner buffet service: thank goodness for reservations at the restaurants on premise; and lack of bar and pool service especially since at the Iberostar in Riviera Maya-wait staff at pool/beach was very attentive.

Nice Hotel but no plan to return

The room definitely did not feel like the rating it was given on the website. Our room was fairly small and the air conditioner leaked every day. We had to lay down towels on the floor to keep from falling on the slippery floor. Our room service though was wonderful and we looked forward to the customized "animal" towels. The hotel staff was nice but we did experience some bad moments where we were made fun of at the beach bar for not speaking their language and a general haughty attitude towards Americans. The other foreigners vacationing there were also exceptionally rude. They have no concept of taking turns or how to say "Excuse me". I thought the food in the restaurants was much better than the buffet. The best part of the trip was Dressel Divers. They were wonderful people, friendly and we had an excellent time on the excursions they provided. Overall, the hotel grounds are very pretty, nice pool, great beach, and good location. I just have no desire to return here.

This was the second time to this resort and decided to bring my friend with me for a girl’s getaway. As with the first time, the service, room and food were great. I am a Club Member so I was able to use the Star Prestige lounge when I felt like having a quiet drink and using the Members only area on the beach with great lounges and great drink service. All service personnel were extremely polite, attentive and helpful; however, I noticed a larger language barrier than the first time. I was able to get my meaning across on several occasions but felt that servers in the restaurants should have a better understanding when you order off the menu in English and then have to point to what you want. Also, I asked for a wine list at each restaurant and it took many versions of asking before they brought it. This was my only complaint as the hotel itself was spectacular. I am definitely returning as I find the positives outweigh that one negative

Excellent Vacation

The property, people, staff, pool, beach perfect, lots of room, chairs, clean. Biggest disappointment was the food, the buffet was ok, lacking some nights in variety, the pasta bar was my friend. We went to the Steak house, nice location, atmosphere and steak selection but they were fried, a grill would be a huge improvement, the Japanese was good, entertaining, The Mexican restaurant should be closed and just put a taco bar in the buffet. An Italian or French restaurant would be more enjoyable

I visited the resort from January 7th until March 4th. The weather was lovely every day. It was excellent food. Great and friendly staff very helpful. They are always smiling and very accommodating. Lovely beaches. Very spacious premises. Spent a lot of time with Nelson in the gym. Got me into great shape! Feeling great! Best place to rejeuvenate yourself and come back feeling relaxed.

Excellent resort, great food and service, especially from Angel Martinez who would always take care of us. Visited Catalina island for snorkeling and spend the rest of the day on the beach. Definitely going back.
