No for mid 20 year olds

More of like a couple/older person resort. Not really a resort for 21-27 year olds looking to party. Night club and bars were not that good.

Great Food Rough Water

We enjoyed this resort - beautiful grounds , peacocks roaming , flamingos in the fountains and free flowing drinks. The buffet food choices were good and open round the clock. Staff was helpful, but an orientation upon arrival would have helped since we didn't k know the tap water wasn't purified. The beach was too rough to swim - we had rainy weather on. And off - couldn't snorkel. Even the snorkel tours weren't going out - this was a disappointment. The pool was clean but very cold - the usual chair reserving goes on so get out there early and get your stuff on a chair Fun activities poolside and beach side - plenty to keep you and kids busy. We enjoyed the Brazilian and Japanese specialty restaurants but didn't get to the Mexican. Had the smell of burning one afternoon in the room but it passed and nothing smoked - informed the front desk. Was assured they would check into it. Overall we had a very good vacation excellent dining and drinking - but the beach was a disappointment and the pool was too cold.

Great resort for the value

This was my first visit to this resort. Overall, I had a great time. The staff was very attentive and pleasant to deal with. I've included pictures of the pool area. Loved it! Water was warm and the bartenders took care of us really well. My only issue was the food. I felt like it could be much better. Although I did enjoy the breakfast selection as well the Japanese restaurant. Speaking of restaurant, I felt like the 9-12 timeframe to make reservations at either of the restaurants (Brazilian,Mexican, or Japanese) was too short especially since most people traveling from the states don't make it to the resort until after 12. For entertainment, the shows were pretty good and the staff was fairly good at keeping everybody engaged. For the beach itself, for that side of the island of the island, it was fine. One thing I would suggest is to have waiters to bring us drinks in that area. Again, overall I really enjoyed my stay at the resort. And they even left me a cake for my birthday. Who wouldn't love that??? :)

Great time but can be better

We had a good time at Iberostar. To be honest, we were out of the resort a lot. So if you like adventures in nature you will be able to find a lot of things to do close by. We would've been able to enjoy the resort more if the pool was open later. Pools close at 7pm. There is always food available, either at the buffet or snack bars, which is good, but only has 3 restaurants. The Brazilian restaurant was disappointing. The Mexican restaurant was really good. They serve small portions but they make it up with the salad/food bar. It's a rather small resort but the service is really good. Just a note to management (if they would ever see this), better lighting would make this resort look 10 times better at night.

What's to Love

It's an all-inclusive relax-a-thon on the golden sands of Costa Dorado.

The Turkish bath, and hot stone massages at the stress-smashing spa.

Dropping off the kids at Lucy's Club (ages 4-12) - they draw & read while you play.

Golfing at the 18-hole Playa Dorada Beach & Golf Club that's five-minutes away.

 

What We'd Change

The guest rooms do not have Internet access, and there is a small fee for access in the hotel lobby. But who goes to Puerto Plata to work on the computer, anyway?

 

Why You Should Go

It's 20 minutes from the airport - your Dominican dream vacay will begin presto.

This place is all about water sports - kayaks, canoes, Hobie cats and more.

There's a casino for the riskier beach lovers.

For the land lovers, there's tennis, volleyball, a fitness room and more.
