- All Inclusive Features
The Iberostar Dominicana is a part of the other Iberostar Suites found in the Punta Cana Resort strip. Much like the other Iberostar suites, this is a great destination for both families and couples. The food options are average. There are good buffet items. For those who are looking to eat at the a la carte restaurants during the majority of their stay, make sure that you reserve during your check-in. These restaurants have a tendency to be very busy. Great nightly entertainment and the staff are attentive and knowledgeable. Overall however, there are other options around the strip available if you want to get the most out of your money.
Location: Directly on Bavaro Beach, next to the Iberostar Bavaro Resort, 60 minutes to Higuey, 30 minutes from the airport.
Stayed 16/7/17 to 27/7, but late in doing review. We do our research and knew this hotel was the older type. We have stayed at iberostar before and knew it would suit us. Not to hung up what star it is three four not a problem. Great check in from Stephanie given room 4274. Large comfy beds. Good shower. Usual fridge/safe coffee etc yes the hotel is a bit jaded but it's older style as mentioned. Old lampshade covers and few stains on wall but no problem. Room was very clean and kept that way during our stay. A nice large room, a/c worked well no complaints.Time share selling in reception not a problem, a simple no was fine and they are only doing their job. Found the constant sellers on the beach a bother this year.Preferred buffet on punta Cana side with all the ladies, Vanessa and yeduleki and the others. Buffet had plenty of good food for everyone. The ladies looked out for you and showed you to a table which we didn't get in Dominicana side. I found the house wine ok. We ate at pool bars for lunch, plenty good food there too.Beach was beautiful plenty of beds and shade. There was the usual bed hoggers, beds still empty at two or took bed at pool and beach. We still got beds. Entertainment on the beach every day was good along with bbq's and paella. Pools nice but too busy for us.Watched few shows, some better than others. The star friends very friendly and work so hard with lots of energy and enthusiasm they are to be praised.Only managed to book two restaurants at times we wanted. The gourmet was good. The American one had very nice well presented food however there was no atmosphere.The grounds are immaculate and pretty and hotel is spotless everywhere.We had a very satisfactory holiday with no complaints. All the staff work very hard for their guests.
Hotel is old and needs updating. Grounds are kept clean, wifi in rooms stink. Service was good from most of the servers, some were rude, but overall a good experience. Food was decent at the buffet. The restaurants that need reservations were average, i would definitely go with the Mexican as one of your choices. Others were so so. Don't like the fact that they push you to see the grounds of their higher class hotel and try to sell you something. I opened out of that, as I heard from a few friends who had horrible experiences.
We traveled to Iberostar Dominicana for a week (August 16 to the 21 / Room 4049)with my kids for our summer vacation and we picked this hotel base on the TripAdvisor ratings and the fact that it's kids friendly. Our arrival was smooth and the front desk was extremely friendly and welcoming and were able to accommodate our request of a room near the pool. Our bellman was very informative and we learned that he is been working at Iberostar Dominicana for 6 years which is a good indicator that a business is well run. We definitely are coming back to this place and will recommend it to our friends and family. The pools: we love both pools and the fact that one is cool and the other one is warmer. I personally admired and loved the service at the pool bar since the staff was always in a good move and remembered my favorite drinks. Special thanks to the ladies and the told friendly bartender that had always a nice smile and dance while serving you. The beach: The beach was warm and addictive. The white sand and clear water was a super plus. We did the banana boat and it was one of the most fun activities we done and we are looking forward to do it again. Food: We tried the Oriental, Sea food and the Star Caffe and our favorite was the Star Caffe. The churrasco was delicious and melt in your mouth. My daughter ordered the Double cheeseburgers with bacon which was delicious and my son had the BBQ ribs which were also super tasty. However, my kids loved the Buffets and all their choices from pasta, sea food and Spanish food. Entertainment: We loved the nightly shows and got there early so we can find a great spot to enjoy the show. My kids loved the final dance of the night when the audience gets on the stage and dance the Iberostar anthem, Dale pa ya dale pa ca. Special thanks to Sexy papi for his great attentions to my kids and to Mini-cooper for always Acknowledging us and saying hello. Great recognition to the super engaging ceremony masters for making everyone laugh so hard. The Room: The room was beautiful and comfortable. The AC was blasting and the room was freezing cold. Our housekeeping lady was amazing and always cleaned the room spotless and let us beautiful towels figures with flowers which my kids loved.
I would prob give 3 1/2 stars as I feel it's better than average but not quite 4 stars. The place is clean. Grounds are nice. The employees are nice. Never had a problem with staff. Stephany was our rep and she was nice. Helpful at getting our reservations for dinners. She did ask about the "timeshare" to see property next door. They don't say it's a timeshare tho they say "promote the brand". We didn't end up doing it due to an illness but they never hassled us or gave us any issue for not going. So I am not sure what all the negative reviews are about. I enjoyed my stay. Wish they allowed more than a couple sit down dinners as this would make it easier to pick and feel like getting good value for the money. Overall I did have a good experience and I would recommend your hotel to others. The food was decent for all inclusive. We went to the steakhouse, star rock, and Asian restaurants. They were all decent with the star rock being my favorite. The only issue we had with the room was the sliding door to the patio was hard to open and close and after the first day there could not get it to lock so had an unlocked door all week. Otherwise no issue with the room it was adequate.
On third day at resort two men enter my room without permission or knocking on door. They were up to no good. They ran away and we follow. We were in room 5091 report it to front desk and Guest Reltions. Nothing was done. Don't let your guard down. No response from resort or no one. There were 57 people and so many things happen.
