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!

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.

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.

Overall we enjoyed this hotel a great deal. The grounds and pool and Beach for beautiful and very clean and well-maintained. We were surprised by the fact that the majority of the guests were from Europe or South America but we all enjoyed the cultural experience we had because of that. We were a little disappointed in the buffet Foods but overall it was okay. We especially enjoyed the food at the Japanese restaurant and Mexican restaurant. The activities were fun and we had a nice mixture of relaxing and doing fun things. Are children parasail with a partner company on the beach and there were equipment issues that led to dangerous situations resulted in us getting our kids out of the boat and our money back. Overall it was a great experience and we would not hesitate in recommending it to our friends.

Loved this resort. Staff was wonderful, room was perfectly located. We requested rooms close to the pool and beach because one of my fellow travelers has a prosthetic leg. We were given rooms close to everything. The gardens and all the birds were fantastic. No complaints at all. The only negative for me was that there were a lot of very young children in strollers and crying. Not the resorts fault.

We loved the hotel, the staff overall were not friendly or helpful at all. We had to get our own drinks at the lunch facility and flag down staff for anything we needed. The specialty restaurants were 2 hour minimum and the food was mediocre at best. Our apple rep was non existent and never where he was supposed to be. We finally got him two days before we left. The hotel itself is fine, just need to update the attitude of the staff and increase the food quality.

The resort is completely run down. Showerhead falls down, toilet does not flush. It took us two days to get showerhead changed, and toilet was not fixed. Restaurant staff does not speak or understand English, so it is very hard to order or ask for something. As a result you get red wine instead of white, etc. The same with cleaning staff - they are very friendly but do not understand when you ask for a bar of soap. My German speaking friends experienced the same thing. Very few people who can understand what you need - mostly front desk staff. Concierges are also not helpful, they keep sending you from one to another.

Last winter, spent a week at that resort after a deceptive cruise in the Caribbeans. Beautiful resort! From the layout to the entertainment, from the pools to the beach, from the food to the room, it was such a beautiful, relaxing week. Can't wait for the next winter season, it would be hard to say no.....

While thinking of my next year's vacation, I remembered to send this review in. Was at Iberostar Hacienda in February for 8 "perfect days" with 2 friends. Been to several hotels on the DR island the past 5 years & liked them all although there was always 1 or 2 small problems at each. However, the Iberostar Hacienda was the BEST. Grounds are breathtaking, staff friendly & not annoying, food delicious, huge pool & clean beach. I cannot even think of one negative comment. Needless to say, I'm planning another trip next year!!!!

The resort is beautiful, the food was great, the beach was wonderful! There are a variety of specialty restaurants for dinner that are fun to go! The room is on the smaller end and sometimes needs repair. I would come back though! It was a great place to relax!
