- 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.
This is my 6th time to DR and 4th time to Punta Cana. I enjoyed my stay at this resort. No issues with check in and dinner reservations are made right after that, 3 a la cartes per week. We did the french, seafood and japanese, all great. Always lots options at the buffet and breakfast at the beach was good.Room very spacious and no issues. Pillows a little flat but no problems. Fridge refilled daily with pop, water and beer. We were in the 4 building close to pool and beach. Wifi was available but not everywhere, it was by the lobby and certain areas by pool and sometimes in the room.Never a problem getting lounge chairs but pool or beach, I was there around 8am each day and and had my choice of where to sit. Staff always finding people to do things, not pushy and very friendly. Not a big deal for me that there was no swim up bar. There are bars all around. Frozen drinks aren't slushy in day but that didn't bother me either. Beach amazing and walking along it made for a great day, waves fun, water warm, took the hobie cat out a few times, very fun. Best to take out in the afternoon as more wind.For those who like to workout while on vacation there is an awesome gym. All equipment new, there are bar bells, and weights to use, fresh cranberry juice and chlorophyll water. Staff there to assist. There is also a second level with scheduled activities from yoga, pilates, spinning, boot camp, TRX, zumba.Entertainment was top notch! All singers were amazing and the costumes impressive. The live band that accompany the nightly entertainment was top notch and something I have not seen at a resort, other than after the show was over.Friendly staff always had an hola and smile.I'm not sure what the complaints are about this resort, I read a lot of negative reviews but take them with a grain of salt. The only negative complaint would be about other guests but that is no fault of the resort.Enjoy this resort, I sure did!!!!!
I would come back in a heartbeat! The staff was phenominal, the rooms were great and felt very clean, I felt very safe at the resort, and they offer a ton of activities if you are someone who gets bored easily. The food was okay, nothing amazing, but that's understandable when you are trying to find a medium to so many different cultures. The one thing I didn't like was the peddlers IN the resort at the shops - they were really pushy. It's nice to have shopping on the resort, but it would be nice if they didn't yell at you every time you walked by. Overall, would highly recommend, and would come back without a doubt!!
The resort itself was very nice, beach was beautiful but it was hard to find chairs at times on the beach. The pools were a nice option if you didn't want to be on the beach. Food was average, I was disappointed in the desserts. Specialty restaurants you could only go to 3 restaurants per 7 days staying which I thought was odd and none of the restaurants were ever full when we went. Not sure why they have this policy
Save your money! This was the worst vacation we ever had--guest services was terrible, no help at all, mold in bathroom, leak from ceiling, food bad, lack of communication BIG time! Spent every single day trying to get a problem solved, you can talk to five people and ask them the same question and you'll get five different answers...I could go on and on but just look for somewhere else to have a great vacation and stay away from Iberostar!!
Iberostar, I am the client who won't complain but I'm also the business who won't stay there again. It was the simple things that you couldn't get right. The cleaning of the room, making the bed. Standard room at a 5 star hotel should still be a very nice room. No room service at a resort, seriously. Nothing but hot dogs to eat after 10pm and you call it the 'buffet' not everyone is from the same time zone. Not even a review of the amenities at check in. Making reservations for dinner was a joke. You have to go to the front desk to get everything done because no one answers the phone. Sorry, but it's a 5 min walk to the desk to find no one, add rain and you get 15 min while you try not to fall on the slippery tile. Thanks for the warnings at foot level instead of eye level. A yellow cone would make more sense. The food was blah from the Japanese restaurant or the buffet didn't seem to matter. Guest services could care less if they actually solved a problem seems as if everyone was just waiting for their shift to end. I'll give A+ to your Guest service manager on the Punta Cana side. I think her name was Gloria. Hire about 100 more of her at least she listens first. For the traveler, if you have stayed in a Ritz, Four Season, or anything of that standard. Don't trust these 5 star reviews on trip advisor. I assure you that the threshold had to be very low. The best feature is the pool....
