Iberostar Dominicana September 2016

This was my second time traveling to Punta Cana. This trip I stayed for 7 days/6 nights. The price was great. I gave 3 palms for service because the staff was not very friendly. There were a select few that were friendly and I wish the rest of the staff had been. I gave 4 palms for beach and pools only because the beaches had quite a bit of seaweed. I never saw anyone raking it the entire time I was there. Had that not been an issue the beaches and pools easily would've gotten 5 palms. Three palms for dinning options because we were only allowed two dinner reservations at the restaurants. The rest of the time we had to eat at one of the buffets. The buffets always had the same food, so that was 16 meals in a 6 day period at the buffets eating the same food. There were extremely limited options for snacking when the buffets were closed. Room comfort received a 4 because it was difficult to get the room cooled down enough, one lamp was broken, the floors were never swept while we were there, the lighting was too dark, there were extremely limited number of outlets to use and the door did not seem secure. Aside from that the resort is beautiful and there is ample shopping inside the resort. However, the resort is very large and with all of the buildings and winding pathways it is difficult to find your way around. Personally I will not be returning to the particular resort.

Will try else ware next year

8/28/16 to 9/2/16 Two adults one 8 year old. We have been to many A.I. over the years and this resort truly let us down. PROS: Service was good with daily tipping. Beach was very nice. Restaurants were very good. Rooms were nice, when there was hot water. CONS: Buffet was forgettable, poor choices and uninspired. Pool was tiny, even in the off season. SUMMERY: Will go else ware next year. When the restaurants are not an option ,the buffet will have you wondering if there is a good Jersey diner around the corner. I can not imagine the pool lounge chair battles in the high season.This is another reason we will choose a family favorite next year. TIP: Do your homework, spend a little extra $$ and have the vacation you deserve.

Iberostar disappointment

In many ways you get what you pay for but this resort was disappointing. Value: Hot water shouldn't be too much to ask for and I've always received it in the cheapest of places. The food was terrible. If you can't even do breakfast right you've got problems. Service: As expected, the service was fantastic and friendly. Although the first 4 days we had no beach service I wouldn't call that a deal breaker. Beach & pools: Dominican beaches are amazing. I'm only giving 4 stars though because the pools, while beautiful, we're not the cleanest. Dining options: We were not able to get reservations at almost all of the restaurants. We were not sure why because they were practically empty. I heard another guest mention that you had to attend a sales pitch to get reservations. The buffets were always available but not good. Room comfort: The room was nothing special, very dated, not cleaned well, and hot water was a luxury you had to complain to get. Aside from our room, the area where the entertainment team performed nightly (and they were very good) was almost unbearable because they would turn off all the fans when the show would start. While still a great vacation, we've experienced much nicer resorts.

What's to Love

Iberostar Dominicana Hotel has just undergone a total update. It was good before but now it's better. How can you not love that?

 

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

Paired with its sister resort next door, Iberostar Dominicana is a rare place, where you get double the amenities for the price of one great hotel.

Hotel Description

Iberostar Dominicana: Dance Because You Want To

Is this the third or the fourth time you've been caught daydreaming to the beat of island rhythms? Then it's time to escape to Iberostar Dominicana in Punta Cana, where you can dance the night away with other like-minded people who caught the island beat. Iberostar Dominicana, in a vibrant setting among tropical foliage, just across from dazzling Bavaro Beach, offers guests an amazing, all inclusive island experience.

If you're inclined to live in a wetsuit, Iberostar Dominicana in Punta Cana offers an on-site CDC, PADI, Gold Palm Resort Diving Center, operated by Dressel Divers International. The facility organizes dives daily for those wishing to partake in a little Captain Nemo-style adventure. Meanwhile, if you're an avid golfer, you can swing your irons at the spectacular, 18-hole Iberostate Bavaro Golf & Club, with its complex pattern of sharp undulations and significantly stubborn trade winds that will test your game.

If you'd rather be still, grab a Swedish massage at the hotel's spa, or hop in a Turkish bath, before sidling up to a sun bed for some serious beachside-cocktail service at Chiringuito Beach Bar. Then, sink into an armchair or a shaded palapa next to one of the free-form, lake-style pools, and snooze or work on the perfect tan as a take-home souvenir from your time at Iberostar Dominicana.

La Marimba Seafood Restaurant, one of eight restaurants, is where you'll find a tasty array of international cuisine, including fresh seafood. Then, while others snuggle in the luxurious, king-sized beds, you can join the night owls gathering for the nightly variety shows and live music presentations. Let the sounds of Perico Ripaio tickle your ears with meringue, bachata and salsa beats. You can learn about the musical history of this beautiful country, through expressive dance and musical interaction, in a wonderful variety display of the island spirit. Then, it's finally your turn to cut loose. At Disco DC-6, you'll have plenty of time to boogie 'til you just can't boogie no more or 3am, whichever comes first. Isn't that better than dreaming of dancing?
