This was our first time vacationing in the Dominican Republic, we had stayed at several all inclusive resorts in different Caribbean countries, but the Iberostar Dominicana was by far superior to anything we have ever stayed at. The hotel itself is only about 5years old and is clean and modern, marble floors in the foyer and a open space concept design.Our room was modern,spacious and clean, the AC was cool and quiet with a ceiling fan in the room. The shower had excellent water pressure and the water was always warm. Our maid cleaned the room every morning and supplies us with clean towels, and the mini bar was replenished every second day. .The food was excellent, two main buffets to choose from and five different ale cart restaurants .There was food available 24/7 . Several bars and a night club, entertainment in the form of salsa and line dancing , two wonderful swimming pools, an array of shops, and a beach to die for maybe 3min walk from hotel room. This place was a vacation paradise, you never needed of wanted to leave the hotel complex, everything was a short walk away from the sauna to water sports, to shopping to entertainment. , I cannot say enough about the staff, I have never being treated with such genuine friendliness, and excellent costumer service. Overall great valve for the money , we had a relaxed wonderful vacation and I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Iberstar Experience

First let me say I would stay at an Iberstar again. We took our vacation in December and the weather was perfect. The beach area at the Iberstar was plentiful and a 10 minute walk took you to the outfloor flea market on the beach. We never had to wait for a chair. When we arrived check in was pretty quick we were on the third floor,with a garden view. We were traveling with a 15 year old son, 19 year old daughter, 21 year old son. The rooms were a little dated with Rattan furniture but they were roomy enough. So were to start, the grounds were well maintained and beautiful. On Friday evenings they would have a locals come in and sell their wares in the lobby. The staff was unbelievable very friendly and very helpful and there are tons of activities for everyone to do. The kids were always busy playing beach volleyball or archery. We were there for a five night vaca. They had the buffet restuarant, pool restuarant, a beach steakhouse. All of the food does get repetitious but it does save you money. The fruits and vegetables were wonderful the desserts lacking. Ok the location was a bit out there but it seemed like the whole area of Punta Cana was spread out with no central location to hang with the kids for a day. Ok I have to say something about the entertainment I almost forgot my 16 year old loved it. There usually was something going on at night to keep everyone occupied. The bar/disco needs updating really bad. On a whole this resort was very kid/teenager friendly. It was clean, the staff wonderful, and the beach spectacular.

Great Value

I had the best time here. My girlfriends and I were looking for a place to go on spring break, but didn't want that "spring break" experience. For what we paid, the drinks were great and service was wonderful. Though I had a few issues with guest services trying to locate my lost luggage, the service staff and wait staff was amazing. One night our typical waiter in the buffet area set our table with candles and flowers. I had a massage which was amazing, and right on the beach. We went Parasailing and Banana boating through the resort. It was a great time and fairly priced. I would suggest going through the resort for these things because others that offer lower prices may be pirates. The food was great and always available. Even at 3am outside the Disco. The drinks were also great and not watered down. Overall amazing vacation!

Spectacular except...

The beach and pool was one of the best I've ever been too. The hotel was great for the price except, there is NO ROOM SERVICE, and Wi-Fi was horrible to say the least. Internet worked best outdoors near the pool and never in our room the entire time we were there. The food was the bomb, my favorite being La Cana and the buffet at any time it was available. My picky kids really enjoyed the options available. The servers are really hospitable and entertaining. Most of the shows were above what I've seen previously especially Michael Jackson and the International one, however some of the other ones were a little risqué. There were a few instances that we left or sent the little ones out with the teenagers that were in our group. The rooms were a little stuffy at times and it was difficult to find a happy medium with the a/c. The bathrooms could use working vents! Overall it was great.

What's to Love

It's an all-inclusive haven on beautiful Playa Bavaro. Swoon.

Teeing off at the Iberostate Bavaro Golf & Club created by designer P.B. Dye.

The babysitting service (24/7), Lucy's Club (4-12) & Teens Club (12+) - Adult party time.

Melting during a beachfront massage and vegging at the spa's Jacuzzi.

 

What We'd Change

Beach chairs and palapas go fast, so post an early-morning guard or, if worse comes to worse, snuggle down into that baby-soft, angel-white sand on your beach towel.

 

Why You Should Go

It's 20 minutes from the airport. Blink and you'll be there.

For scuba folks, there's onsite CDC, PADI, & Gold Palm Resort Diving Center.

After a swim, you can dry off with tennis, riflery, Petanque, horseshoes & more.

There's oceans of water sports: aqua gym, catamarans, kayaking. That's just to start.
