Our Opinion

The Iberostar Punta Cana is a part of the other Iberostar Suites found in the Punta Cana Resort. This is a great resort for couples wanting a quiet and relaxing getaway in Punta Cana. While some of the rooms are a bit outdated, they are regularly maintained and restocked. The staff are amazing. They never fail in ensuring you're getting the best out of your stay. The beach area is large enough that it wasn't necessary to reserve loungers. OK food items. There is entertainment held every night, which vary depending on what show you watch. Overall, this is a great romantic destination.

Set on one of the finest beaches in the Caribbean, the Iberostar Punta Cana is perfect for families or couples looking for excellent value. Stroll through the impressive property on walkways that wind through lush gardens past fountains stocked with fish and turtles. By night, tap your toes to the entertaining live music, dance the night away at the disco, or step into the spotlight on karaoke night at the Sports Bar.

Location: Beachfront, 45 minutes to Higuey, 35 minutes from the airport.

  • Michelle O :

After a few minor hiccups which were quickly rectified , we were able to completely relax and enjoy the hotel, excellent food and staff. The entertainment very good particularly Michael Jackson night , not to be missed! The best entertainer was Bruno Mars by far, he went out of his way to include and amuse us! He's a brilliant character - a great asset to the hotel! Thankyou!

My overall experience of this hotel is a solid 3 Stars. One of the reasons we choose this hotel was because it was budget friendly. I will start with the good. The staff will go out of their way to make you feel at home. They deserve 5 STARS! We traveled with 21 family members and every day they went out of their way to make sure we had tables to sit together for breakfast and dinner. We ate at 3 of the specialty restaurants. The Steakhouse and the Mexican restaurant we enjoyable. The Asian restaurant was hit or miss depending on what you ordered. I did not eat at the seafood place but I heard it was delicious. The beach was beautiful and the pools were very nice. My only major complaint is that they did not clean up cups/plates at a good rate. Food was lingering around the pool for too long. The shows were entertaining. They performed the Lion King which was impressive. When we arrived our room was ready but the AC was not that cold. There is a fan that helped so we never felt hot. We were transferred to a room which was much cooler. We stayed on the first floor which we requested since we had a toddler and did not want to deal with the steps and elevator. If I traveled back to Iberostar I would go with one of their hotels with a rating of 4 and higher. This hotel served its purpose for our trip.

Great trip. Great people. Want to come back.

Booked my trip thru United Vacations. My first trip of this kind, and the booking was super easy. The transport is set up thru Island Sun, and they were great. Andres was our contact, and he could not have been nicer. He gave us all the info we needed and background on all what to expect. He answered all of our questions, and gave us good recommendations. When we arrived, we were met right away with tropical drinks, and Henry gave us a quick tour while our room was readied. Henry was great the whole trip, and was quick to answer or deliver anything we needed. Please make sure to see Henry for your dinner reservations and he will make sure you are taken care of. Anything else you need, Henry is also quick to assist. Big thanks to Henry. Paulina is at the lobby bar, and is the best! She was so good to my whole family, and kept the drinks coming. Thanks to Paulina for being such good company, and taking such good care of us all week. Ronnie is at the Oceanfront Bar and another great person to check in with. He is a party man, and will also keep the drinks flowing. Great people all around the resort. I have nothing negative to say about our trip. Our first all inclusive, and we cant wait for the next one. I feel like I now have an extra family that I am looking forward to visiting again. Dont pay attention to any negative reviews. My whole family could not have had a better time. If you go on any excursions, go to Monkey Land. It was awesome. Our tour guide and transport person was Leo with Runners Adventures. He was a nice guy and all the locals seem to know and love him. Thanks to everyone for my new medicine - Mamajuana. Cant wait to come back.

Family vacation

We have had 5 previous visits to the Iberostar Grand Bavaro in Punta Cana, but this trip we brought our children and wanted to stick with Iberostar to try their family resort as well. We stayed in building 5 - the rooms were spacious (clearly had age on them) and were perfectly fine for us as we don't spend much time in the room. We did encounter multiple issues with room keys that would stop working, but really this was the only room related issue we had. The food is average. It was annoying and disappointing for us that we had such a difficult time getting reservations at the al a carte restaurants. We highly recommend the omelets made to order for breakfast and the Asian al a carte restaurant was our best dinner on the resort - although the steakhouse was a close second. The superstar of lunch and dinner service is Eudy!! He is amazing - always sincere with his desire to help you and your family have the best time possible. This resort is SO lucky to have this guy.....his smile and charisma is contagious - which is great because most of the other staff seemed pretty quiet and 'standoffish" unless he engaged them. We felt very fortunate each afternoon & evening to see him, and it was a pleasure getting to know him. He truly made our stay here memorable. THANK YOU EUDY!!The beach area is, as always, beautiful, but I will say everyone has at least one early riser in their group that goes down to claim their spot for the day so I highly recommend doing the same. The pool area chairs go even faster!! I was up around 7am and had no problem finding a nice spot for my family of 7 each day. I am only giving this resort a 3 star rating because of the age of the buildings, 90% of the staff were either not friendly or not helpful when needed and the food needs attention in a major way IF management wants to elevate the standard. Overall, IF we go back WITH the kids - we will stay with Iberostar, but more than likely stay at the Bavaro suites location. We will DEFINITELY be back to the Grand Bavaro as a couple -- hopefully sooner than later. ALSO - we had one of the BEST meals we've ever had in Punta Cana on an excursion!!! It was through Hispaniola Aquatic Adventures, and we highly recommend - - it was an amazing experience start to finish
