I have stayed at Iberostar with my family in September 2016. We had an unfortunate start because of the Zika virus panic in UK and EU so my sister and niece have cancelled the trip and I was left to travel with my parents. Fortunately the agency sorted out all the issues and we booked two rooms which were connected. The staff at the check in reception was really sweet, they immediately confirmed we will have the rooms as requested and our luggage has been taken to our rooms in block 5 which was close to the main restaurant. Our rooms were lovely, comfortable and most importantly very clean with plenty of fresh towels, pillows, blankets (not that you need those :)) and mini fridge with drinks. Our cleaning lady was also very nice and always done a nice job. Furthermore on my birthday the housekeeping staff has put balloons and happy birthday sticker on my door which was very sweet of them. The food was very good from the main restaurant to the more formal restaurants you had to book. Our favourite was the Colonial (French) where the food was presented really nicely and staff were super polite and attentive. To be honest I don't think we have even come across anyone who wouldn't be attentive for the whole two weeks. The barman at the Lighthouse (I am so sorry I forgot his name) was absolutely amazing, he remembered what drinks we liked (Daiquiri no sugar, no sweet :) bless him he was extra nice. We did tip the staff from time to time as I think they really deserve it and little money goes a long way. You can see they appreciate it but they will give the same service to people who don't tip as well. We have not taken much part in the entertainment as I have been diving most of my trip and I was exhausted every evening. We went to couple of shows which were fun and watched the aerobic classes by the sea and they looked fun. My mum has organised a Birthday cake and bit of a sing song from the staff which was very nice (not that I like the attention that much but it was very nice anyway).The grounds of the hotel are beautiful and the spa area is also lovely. After two weeks we got to know quite lot of the staff and felt extremely comfortable so much so that when it was time to leave we were feeling really sad (not to mention the hurricane Matthew was about to hit the Haiti and I know Bayahibe got affected as well). I hope you guys didn't suffer too much damage as I would hate to see the beach and grounds destroyed. We have had absolutely amazing time and I wouldn't hesitate a second to recommend your hotel to my friends and family. Good luck and keep up with the good work.
Stayed at Hacienda Dominicus from 12/10 to 26/10 on arrival at the hotel we were met with a wet cloth and a cooling drink. Check in was quick and efficient, we were then driven to our hotel block in building 1. The room was big with 2 double beds and a very large walk in shower, our cleaner Claradania left us towel art most days on return to our room, and the room was always cleaned to a good standard.The hotel complex is quite big but very easy to get around, we spent most of our holiday at the beach, which was very good with plenty of sun beds and shade if required. The pool here is also very big, but we didn't stay around it, preferring the beach, as holidays for us is about chilling.The buffet restaurant was quite good, offering plenty of variety, wether at breakfast or dinner, and I must mention Hector and Noveris who looked after us for our two weeks.The speality restaurants are not too bad, but seem a little rushed, we only tried two, the Mexican and the Steak house.I have to give a mention to the activity people who work hard at trying to get guess involved in the games and keep fit, especially Victor, Richard, Ana, and Alex.Overall I can say we had a lovely chilled holiday, and would go back again one day.
This was our 3rd visit to the hotel and I can honestly it'll be somewhere we will keep going back to, the staff there don't treat you like guests they treat you like friends and family, yes a few things have changed since our last visit but its all positive changes, the location is perfect, just a stroll to the beach, the pool still looks amazing as ever, the wifi has been improved. You now have the option to have the beds changed as often as you like by placing a card on the bed, and the fridge is now replenished daily instead of every other day. The staff are still very friendly and most of them recognised us straight away. There have been a few changes to the star friends (new faces) and those that weren't there were greatly missed by us (mostly Gabriel and Nicolas). The evening entertainment was brilliant, there was a mixed variety for all guests, the one that we enjoyed the most was the circus night, their stunts were amazing an edge of the seat kind of stuff, a must see. I no longer see the hotel as a holiday resort, I see it as home. Over the past 3 years that we've been staying there i have never felt more relaxed and at home, when the time comes and we have to leave we always say to the staff that we will see them next year. We have already booked up to go home for another 2 weeks.
Before I already stayed twice in Iberostar Bavaro Suites hotel in Punta Cana. Because of the nicer beaches I wanted a stay at the Carribean side of the island. Being satisfied of the Iberostar services I decided to go to Hacienda Dominicus. The all-in concept is just wonderful, you can have food al day long with great diversity. You also can have freshmade paella, fidewa or BBQ at the beach with live music. A great variety on drinks, alcoholic and non-alcoholic. Don't forget to ask for mamajuana while you're at the bar.Overall the hotel is kept very clean with beautiful gardens and spots to discover. Tropical wildlife is roaming the properties. The pools are kept clean whole day long.The room was clean as well and kept clean every day with wonderful toweldecoration. We had a large kingsize bed, tv, minibar (all-inclusive), safe (all-inclusive), clockradio with an attached cellphonecharger, bathroom with bad. Our room was on the groundfloor in block 3 next to the pool.On the site the dressel divers are also located so you can book and go diving or snorkeling without having to leave the hotel as the boats take off on the hotelbeach.The a la carte restaurants were of very good quality, especially El colonial (french cuisine) en La geisha (japonese show-cooking). Several bars (lobby, pool, beach...) are at your service with all beverages.All personnel is nice and friendly , you sure have to meet Lenny who likes to dress up and reminds you to keep the pool clean.A big pro at this hotel was the free WIFI covering on the whole property of the hotel, not only in the lobby and the room like most other hotels. Another good thing is that the electricity of the room stays on even if you leave the room so you can keep charging your devices and room keeps cold if the A/C is turned on.And then came hurricane Matthew during our stay. It wasn't all too bad after all, we were lucky to not get hit by it but it did destroy the pier and part of the lighthouse (bar). We had a few days of rain and couldn't go in the sea for several day. Personnel worked hard to get things back to normal and we could even enjoy a pina colada party at the lighthouse on our last night there. Sadly we had to postpone or annulate some excursions because of the hurricane.Things that could be improved : -shows at night are of a much lower standard than those in punta cana, singers are not that good, especially when they are singing in english.-sellers once a week in the hotel are rather pushy. we don't mind them being there if they let us look without harassing.
The most beautiful place I chose to spend my bday. From the moment we arrived we were treated like family to the day we left. Every moment was so special I will never forget. The staff here was so friendly and always happy to assist in any way. To name a few I would like to say thank you Amber for making my stay a memorable one the room you gave me was perfect. Thanks also to Johnathan, the gardeners kept the grounds like a paradise. Thanks also to the bell boys the cooks like Anthonio the waitresses Ana there is so many more names I can't remember. Great amenities the beach was also a plus. The location was great we drove to Punta Cana it was about 50 mins away. Will definitely recommend this hotel. Love you all Mala.
