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.
We stayed here with friends for 5 days. The room was fine. The beach is gorgeous. Pool was fun to hang out. Lots of walking but they do have carts as well. We had nice experience at spa (half hour massage for $55). Also did fish eating dead skin activity. Food was ok. Crab legs good. Buffet has lots of items. Went to Asian Seafood and Steakhouse for dinner. All Ok seafood was slow serviceDid not like concierge service as they were about heavy selling vacation club😑 and ignored us after we said no. Sales are pushy in Punta CanaOverall good vacation
This hotel is amazing the animation is full of great and amazing people like Free Willy the most fantastic person I ever met he's very talented and he cares about people and trying to put a smile on people's face So many activities that are so funny and interesting. I want return here in the next summer because it's amazing and I feel like I am with my friends and family with this guys from animation
Pros: Good food, Nice beach, nice pools, AC in rooms worked well, Dune Booging (off resort excursion), Spa with private pools and massagesCons: Pushy sales people (concierge treated us like crap after we refused to spend a day at a timeshare sales pitch), Construction blocking the way to beach and pool forcing us to take the long way around, Never any free chairs pool side or near beach due to people "reserving" them with towels and bags at dawn.Overall nothing really special to set this resort apart from the rest
My wife and I just back from one of our best VACATION The resort was beautiful. Our room was in a perfect spot for quite time of stress free relaxation. The signature restaurants exceceded our expectations. I just wish they would enforce the long pants and dress shirt like they used to do. It add a little class to them. The buffets had more options to chose and always prepared fresh. If you went to your room hungry it will be your fault. I also have serval shout outs for wonderful service. Olga at the lobby bar she was very sweet and if it was not on the list she would still make it. Now for great dining service Duany was the man. And if you need to plan an excursions you need to see Yannick he book our VIP trip to Saina island. We also went deep sea fishing with Gone Fishing tour. If you have questions I will be glad to answer them. We do have pics but still need to go thru them. This was our 5th time at Iberostar in Punta Cana. We have stayed at another resort there but I will alway book Iberostar.
Nice pool.Great beach. Very, very lovely beach. Great walking beach as you could walk for miles and all of it beautiful.Family rooms are large and excellent value: this was the one feature that pulled us to this hotel chain.Needs improvement:We only ate buffet and I was not impressed. Much better food and selection at a smaller resort in Jamaica. With food allergies and some picky eaters we opted for the buffet as the selection was in general greater than the "fancy" restaurants.Need signage for ALL food that contains nuts and sesame or other potential common allergen. This is a matter of life and death of many. I'm suggesting signage as many of the kitchen staff spoke no English so couldn't communicate any information about the food on display. We were given cards written in Spanish that said my son had allergies but they weren't particularly helpful. The entire week we were there, there was no indication as to what the flavours were for the hard ice cream. There were about 6 tubs and it was a guessing game. Could have had nuts. My daughter and I tried to test out the flavours to see if we could figure it out so my son could have some but that wasn't really a good method. So, he went without. No one at the front desk could tell me the flavours either.However, even if food had signage then it still wouldn't help with the taste. While there was a wide variety things just didn't taste that good.I'm guessing having to please so many different palates can be challenging. Europeans, South Americans and North Americans. Not sure that they are doing any of it well. Should have a dedicated few dishes at every meal of local dishes (which one assumes that they would do well) for those wishing to try local food. The few local dishes that were on hand weren't so great either. I've eaten plantains, cassava and yams my entire life and serving them boiled and dried out with a little onion very unappetizing. Paella at beach looks impressive but was in fact tasteless. Our room 4354, was freezing cold. And we had no way to regulate. We discovered if we left the balcony door in the kids room slightly open then their AC stayed off. If ours was supposed to have that feature as well then it was broken. Our door was also broken. Only way to shut the door was to slam it really hard. Pools should have life guards. Beach needs more than one lifeguard.
