Wonderful Vacation

The flight to Dominican Republic was not a joy, but once we arrived the vacation became a great getaway. Cheap Caribbean representatives meet us after customs we were escorted to our transportation and off we went. The Iberostar Punta Cana was everything we expected. We meet our Cheap Caribbean representative (Perla) and she gave us a briefing about conditions, what to avoid and what to do to stay healthy and safe. We took several excursions that Perla set up for us. Perla was a joy to work with, she even meet us after our excursions to make sure all went well. The food was great, with a different specific Country cuisine highlighted each night. We met Magnola, our server, and became good friends. She anticipated our wants and needs with a smile each day. The specialty restaurants were good and I had one of the best steaks I have ever had. There were many daily activities around the pool area, to many to highlight. I will say the activities staff was full of energy and happy in their work. The grounds were well maintained. The nightlife at our resort were minimal(which I am happy about) , but across the way was another resort for a more active nightlife. At the end of our stay we were once again met by a Cheap Caribbean representative who escorted us back to the airport, directed us to a knowledgeable porter who expertly directed us through the airport confusion. I am grateful to Cheap Caribbean for a wonderful, affordable vacation.

Lovely 6 days in I.P.C.

We stayed at Iberostar Punta Cana for 5 days in late Sept. 2016. We had our 4 yr old Granddaughter, Isabella with us. She absolutely loved every minute of it. In general, it is a lovely, quiet resort on the Punta Cana side...but if you like a more lively atmosphere, stay at the Dominicana which is the sister resort. Two buildings, two lobbies but the same resort. The beach/pool areas are beautiful and spacious. Food was plentiful but getting reservations at the specialty restaurants was easier said than done. Until I found Gloria at Guest Services. She gave me whatever I wanted and more. We did one excursion: a catamaran trip to Saona Island booked thru Living Punta Cana. Great people, very professional and great service. Pick up was at 7 a.m. and they were there on the dot of 7. Highly recommend them. They also use LPC as their name. Beware of the trip to see Bavaro Grand hotel, a recently built nearby hotel owned by Iberostar. They promised us $100. hotel credit which turned into coupons that we could not even use. Was supposed to be 1.5 hours and turned into 2 hours. I was not a happy camper. The room was clean and spacious but had 2 double beds, not queen with a pull-out sofa. The bathroom was badly designed with insufficient lighting, no light at all in the shower, the sink was close to the mirror that it made it difficult to use and I am average height. Whomever designed it was not a professional bathroom designer. I always find the employees of the hotel, the maids, the lower workers to be wonderful people. Our fave of Iberostar hotels is Hacienda Dominicus in LaRomana.

Overall great vacation!

My fiancee and I stayed at Iberostar Punta Cana 6 nights at the end of August. The staff at this resort are probably the resorts best assists. They really go above and beyond in every situation and try to improve your experience in each interaction. Ronny and Gladys who are bartenders at the outside bar are amazing! The resort advertises the Punta Cana resort was just remodeled but honestly it's still outdated. I don't understand what was updated. The room had outdated furniture, cracked floor/wall tiles in the bathroom. The night lights next to the bed didn't work. The ceiling fan switch was broken and repaired with some super glue. As we were leaving to check out, the air conditioner started poring water out all over the floor from the overhead ceiling. Maybe from a bathroom leak above us or maybe the air conditioner. Every special dining restaurant was amazing! The food was top notch, except for the desert. The deserts were very boring and not very tasty. The night club was set up very well!! Great sound and lighting system. I think the airplane theme is cool but the DJ is extremely high up from the ground and you can not request songs. The music could improve to more update songs. The new gym and spa was awesome!! New buildings and really great features. Overall I really much enjoyed my time here, as it was very relaxing and not a huge party resort with teens getting overly drunk. I would stay there again and would recommend this resort to a friend.

Great Place to vacation

This place has various activities, pools, dinning options and shopping centers. Me and my husband enjoyed this place so much. There was always something to do. If we wanted to relax we could do that as well. The service is great! The food is delicious. I would love to choose the place again.

What's to Love

Kids absolutely adore this place for the fun-filled Lucy's Club and the awesome on-site mini-zoo. With the kids busy, adults have the freedom to have fun, too!

 

What We'd Change

Like most all inclusive resorts, there's a strict reservation policy for the A la carte restaurants. Still, the steaks at La Cana are worth the trouble!

 

Why You Should Go

The Iberostar Punta Cana is a great Dominican Republic spot to soak up the sunshine as a family. With seven dining options, a casino and a spa, there's plenty of choices!

Hotel Description

Iberostar Punta Cana: Family-Friendly Iberostar Luxury on Playa Bavaro

Pack your suits, grab the kids and head for Iberostar Punta Cana on Bavaro Beach! Playa Bavaro is one of the best beaches in the Dominican Republic, with sand so white you'll need sunglasses. Sheltered by a large coral reef, the wide beach has waves gentle enough for the smallest swimmers and is a hit with families. Warm hospitality, seven all inclusive dining options and non-stop activities for adults and kids give you the freedom to enjoy your vacation on your terms.

Start with a stroll on the five-mile beach, then pick a hammock while the kids dive for shells. Or, hang out around the large free-form pool and make new friends from around the world. When a hankering for a juicy steak strikes, we recommend La Cana Steakhouse. But if kids love the classic burgers and fries, they'll love Star Rock Cafe. Couples looking to cut a rug head to DC-6 Disco and shake it to DJ beats. Still working on your moves? Try your luck on the slots at the casino--being in paradise beats a rabbit's foot!

Ready for more action? Take a spin at a watersport or two; after all, fun is the official Punta Cana activity at Iberostar. The major playground is Bavaro Beach where you can challenge the kids to a kayak race, try windsurfing or take a cruise on a sailboat. There's a mangrove jungle walk with a mini-zoo for curious kids, or if you want to check out the P.B. Dye-designed 18-hole Iberostar Bavaro golf course, drop the kids at Lucy's Club. Supervised and fun-packed, the club lets kids build sandcastles and battle it out over bingo while you tee off.

As the day winds down, stop at full-service Spa Sensations for a Shiatsu massage and head to bed totally de-stressed. The Standard Room fits the bill for couples and families. Grab a bottle of beer from the mini bar and watch the stars from the balcony or terrace as you mellow out before yet another day in paradise.
