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 just spent a week at the Iberostar Dominicana ...it was absolutely outstanding...from arrival to departure we had nothing but pleasant and helpful people to make us feel at home..the food was delicious and the star friends were terrific...the waiters and waitresses could not have been more courteous...the rooms are very nice and also clean...well stocked refrigerator ...don’t hesitate to make this your next place to vacation...you won’t be disappointed.
We arrived back at the Dominicana the first part of October, for our 5th time here and the 12th time to Punta Cana. When we arrived we found our Lobby and Buffet were closed due to the hurricane damage. We had a smooth check-in at the Punta Cana Lobby, enjoyed some lunch, then a golf cart ride to our room. By the time our week was over our Lobby was open.Many Thanks to Melissa Foy and Natalia Pairo, for making our stay so nice once again!!! Thank You for the flowers and bottle of champagne, we truly appreciated it. We use our vacation to celebrate our Birthdays and Anniversary. You could not have asked for a better room. The room was always cool and the minibar ice cold. We actually wished we could have brought back the mattress and the coverlet, it was so comfortable. Many Thanks to Marisela for her towel art and the great job she did taking care of us!! We wanted for nothing. Since we love to take sunrise pictures we needed a little extra coffee, so we left a note on the bed and Marisela made sure we had enough. The Wi Fi worked great in the room no matter what time of day we accessed it.Once again there were plenty of choices, sometimes too many at the buffet. Guaranteed you will not go away hungry unless you are extremely picky. On different occasions one of the chefs would be walking thru the restaurant and talking to the guests. We always find when we get home, how much we miss all those choices, when we have to figure out what we want for dinner, or how much you miss those omelets for breakfast any morning you want one. Yenice and Magnolia, who were actually sisters took care of us at the Punta Cana Buffet. Dominco, was our waiter at the Seafood Restaurant, and the buffet at the beach for breakfast and lunch. We never had a problem being waited on. There was always someone asking us if we needed anything.The same could be said for the bartenders at the beach. Our bartenders were Luis, David, and Santos, for the week. They will remember what you are drinking!! Our waitress at the Punta Cana Lobby Bar was Madelyn. All of them were super friendly!! We didn't encounter anyone that was not friendly, or didn't understand us. They do understand English, and to tell you the truth, we feel we should learn more Spanish.Everyone works so hard here, The roofers were working all day re-roofing the building consisting of the Lobby and the Show Area. Others were working on the landscaping as there were a few very large trees that had been damaged by the hurricane. They still have quite a few palapas to replace on both the Dominicana and Punta Cana sides. It looked like they lost the first 2 rows to the hurricanes. There were still plenty of palapas to choose from. By now they have probably started on them. At least they didn't lose a lot of their beach, as some of the other resorts did, even before the last two hurricanes. The workers were out every morning raking up the seaweed. The girls in the restaurants keeping the floors clean and the girls taking care of the restrooms. The restrooms by the beach are the cleanest of almost any resort we have been at in the past 17 years. If you can give them a small tip, even a $1.00 or $2.00, we have found they truly appreciate it, but don't expect it. You don't have to tip every time. If you treat the employees with respect, you will be rewarded. They go out of their way to make sure your vacation is memorable. So we aren't sure about prior reviews claiming lack of service. Maybe some people feel entitled, we are just happy to be there and to be taken care for the week we were there.We spent all of our days on the beach just relaxing and enjoying the waves. While at the beach we met and spoke with families from Switzerland, Germany, England and Russia. Our beach neighbors for the week. It is always fun to meet families from other countries, every year it is someone different!! We can't wait to go back.At the airport we spoke with people who had stayed elsewhere, at Gold 6's, who had nothing good to say about their stay. This is why when people ask why we keep going back to the same resort, we tell them we don't have a good reason not to. We enjoy seeing the employees that we have become friends with. They will remember you, even though it has been a year.Don't hesitate to book here!!
title says it all,staff was very friendly. i didn't appreciate every thirty feet someone trying g to sell me an excursion,i don't need the hard sell when I'm on vacation. if i want an excursion ill look for one.
Do not stay at the Iberostar Dominicana in Punta Cana! It was the worst vacation my family had ever had! We are even “Club members” but we were disgusted by the way this resort is run. Day one: No internet or properly running air conditioning in our very poorly designed room. Day two: No running water in the entire resort for over 5 hours! I requested to move to another Iberostar and pay out of pocket for the upgrade and I was told NO by the member services because they were booked. I found out myself by walking over that they had availability but they would not help me either! How could the staff run the restaurants and bars without waging their hands???? Day three: No electricity during the night. So once again, no air conditioning, or lights, or tv, or internet in the room! Once again I complained to the office and was told “things happen!!!” Disgraceful! My family and I were not even offered an apology for the incredibly horrible experience much less any type of compensation in any form! This is suppose to be 5 stars?? No way! No swim up bar or servers by the pool either. The restaurants are very hot too! The food is mediocre at best! This was my fourth time staying at an Iberostar I am embarrassed by how poorly we were treated! We will not be returning!
Still here, enjoying my last day! 2 weeks of absolute heaven! Staff cant do enough for you! The entertainers and the lads of an evening truly become friends!! Will miss them all! Food is fab! We had the option to dine a la carte 3 nights a week as part of our deal but didnt once dine anywhere other than at the buffet!!!!! Cant find a single thing to complain about! Was made to feel welcome the minute i arrived! Truly has been my best holiday and favourite hotel to date!! Already looking to return next year!
