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 While some of the rooms are a bit outdated, they are regularly maintained and restocked.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.

Stayed 6 days at the resort, from 1-6-18 to 1-12-18.Arrived after sunset and we had a very good first impression. Christmas decorations were still up and everywhere looked nice. The room was clean, safe for valuables and an iron in the closet and there was a free minibar with water, refreshments and beer which were replenished every day. Also, there is a coffee maker and coffee or tea to make in the room. Air conditioning worked great, (only 3 settings), we had a balcony with view to the stores on the side of the resort. Bathroom was well stacked with body wash, shampoos and conditioners and a hair dryer. At the pool we have to go before 10 AM to find beach chairs, on the beach area I can't even imagine the time you have to go to find one, always taken. Maybe in the afternoon, after 4 PM...Nice beach, you could walk both ways, activities offered for charge. Two restaurants located near the pool and beach satisfy your hunger and thirst. Near the pool, every day there were some free activities and shows. Staff is friendly, try to help although not everybody speaks English. We booked with Chocolate and tried out two restaurants, the Japanese and the La Merida(sea food), we liked them both. Went on two excursions we booked with Huan, one to Santo Domingo and one to the El Limon waterfall, both whole day trips. The waterfall one is very interesting, we travelled by bus, speed boat, horseback and walk down and up on a lots of steps to the waterfall. The city tour is also nice, but far from the resort and you sit a lot. I recommend them both, specially if you have a teenager with you like we had, and try to negotiate the price for the trips, it helps even more if you pay with cash.The buffet offers a variety of food, not quite similar every day, you just have to pick whatever you feel like. For beer and wine we had to ask the waiters, only one kind of beer - Presidente and one choice of wine, white, rose or red.Nightly shows were ok, involved singing, dancing and sometime people from audience. The shops on property have pretty much everything you need extra and souvenirs.Overall it was a nice vacation,.. not that extraordinary that I would return over and over again.

Nice, friendly hotel with excellent food and staff

We've just spend 2 weeks at this hotel. We were greeted by Walter concierge who looked after us all holiday, he is friendly, helpful and has loads of local knowledge. Ask for him n he will make sure u have a good time.All the food is good, loads of choice and special diets catered for. The steak restaurant is a must, beautiful big juicy steaks, the staff are happy n helpful.We did not see many English maybe to early in the year.The large beach area has the lovely white clean sand and you can walk for miles.The singers on a evening were a let down but the entertainment guys make up for that.Family and disabled friendly.

My family and I stayed at this resort 1/6/2018-1/13/2018. My kids are 20 and 25. Both brought their significant others. There were a total of 6 of us and I had booked three rooms. We arrived at the resort at approximately 2:30 and where checked in my 2:45. We were told by the front desk to go directly to the buffet as it closed at 3. We arrived at the buffet and told the woman who was seating people that we needed a table for 6 and her response was an eye roll and obvious dissatisfaction that we arrived so closely to the closing. We walked away with a poor first impression. I approached someone else working there who gave us a table. This is the third resort we have stayed at in Punta Cana and this is the first one we have felt we will not return to. Food: you can only get 3 reservations when staying a week. Which means you are at the buffet for all other meals and the food at the buffets is the same. They throw in a few extra dishes here and there but you pretty much end up eating the same thing all the time. The food itself was okay. 3 people in my party did not feel well most of the week after eating. Rooms: No problems with the rooms. They were clean upon arrival. My daughter’s room did not get cleaned one day for some reason so she did have to chase down the chambermaid for towels.Beach: The beach is nice. Get a chair early or you don’t get one. Nightly shows: Several of the shows involve volunteers from the audience. By the middle of the week I couldn’t get my adult kids to stay. One of the shows involved a cast member pretending to shoot himself in the head. There are families with young children there and it just seemed inappropriate for families with young children. The “Rock” show wasn’t bad. The band was the best part of it. The dancers were also good. Unfortunately the 2 female singers they have are not great and the songs they sang were horrible. I give this place a 3 because overall the majority of employees we came into contact with were good. The resort is clean. It’s just not a place I will return to because I didn’t feel the food variety was great and the fact that you were restricted to 3 dinner reservations. Also the struggle with beach chairs. It’s a small resort.

Woorst first impression (still here for 6 days unfortunately)

I’m gonna start by saying that upon check in we were greeted by a super friendly concierge and front desk service. But then everything went downwards. Wifi wasn’t working (nobody came even after multiple calls to the front desk), the sheets were dirty(no one cared)and more.... I asked for bottled water.. no one came. Anyways i payed close to 1600$ cad and I’m still here for 6 days... VERY DISAPPOINTING oh and by the way wifi is still not working... our vacation is just ruined because of bad service.

Recently my family spent an enjoyable holiday at Ibersotar Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. We have stayed at this resort six times for vacations lasting up to a month, and are always impressed with how well maintained it is. Further, we frequently notice something at the facility which has been remodeled or refreshed since our last visit. My husband planned and organized a celebration of a milestone birthday for me there and gifted the trip to our children and grandchildren during the Christmas holiday. Our party of adults and children consisted of seventeen people. We are particularly fond of this resort because it is very family friendly. From the time of our arrival when we were greeted and assisted by the lovely Tania in Reception, until our departure, our stay was absolutely delightful. My husband worked with staff prior to our arrival to make room accommodations for our party which placed us in close proximately to one another as well as to plan a birthday celebration for me in one of the buffets. Staff and administrative personnel work exceptionally hard to meet the needs and requests of their all their guests. I would recommend this resort as a trip destination for any that are in search of a relaxed, memorable Dominican holiday.
