Worst Place Ever

I don't even know where to begin. Everything was a disaster, we need another vacation just to recover from this one. They closed all of the restaurants due to weather but didn't tell us the reservation was cancelled. So we had to walk back to the front desk to find out they weren't going to open the restaurants. It was close to impossible getting these reservations to begin with then it got cancelled. It wasn't even raining so I'm not sure why all of the restaurants were closed. We were so tired of eating at the buffet for all of the meals. The customer service sucked. None of the employees were on the same page, and didn't know what was going on; so no one could answer our questions and help us. The amstar rep was barely there to help us. Then no one could tell us that our excursion was cancelled. My fiancé and I finally figured it out for ourselves after waiting for the bus for 30 minutes. The front desk was unable to get a hold of the excursion to give us a definitive answer. Once again no amstar representative around to help us. Our last day we found out our flights got delayed. We asked if we could take a later bus to the airport so we wouldn't have to wait at the airport for 6 hours. The front desk showed no compassion towards our situation and told us we had to leave and take the bus to the airport at the time we were originally scheduled for. No one went the extra mile to make our experience better even after we told them this vacation had been a disaster. There was nothing great about this place at all. I'm not sure how this is a 5 star resort. The rooms were nothing special, the food was decent some days, the customer service sucked, and the only good drink was the Pina Colada (all the other drinks tasted like cheap alcohol.) I would never stay here again or would I ever recommend this place.

Dominicana Iberostar

Having stayed with Iberostars through Cheap. in the past, er were overall very satisfied again. However, your affiliation with Amstar is an abject failure. Claudia, our alleged rep, did not appear for the first three days though she claimed to be present. She was useless, not helpful, of no value whatsoever! This is in addition to the days she was not expected due to Irma's landing.

It could have been better

Iberostar Dominicana could use an update to the rooms and the floors. There was this pervasive smell in the room but I always walk with cleaning supplies so it did not bother me for a long time. I did not like that there was a dog at any one place on the property at a given time. The workers were very hard working. That was my positive take away from the trip. they were courteous and friendly. The nights were filled with entertainment that was relevant to al ages. I really enjoyed that. I booked a restaurant on my final night and i did not get the tickets, when I went to the reservation, there was no evidence that I made the reservation.

Disappointed

This was our 3rd time staying at an Iberostrar Resort and sadly I have to say we were so disappointed. The 2 previous times were in Mexico but this time in Punta Cana was such a disappointment that I'm not sure if we'd ever go back. The resort needs to be kept up! It's not outdated but maintenance really needs to step it up. Our reservation was for 3 rooms. Of these 3 rooms, 2 were acceptable but one was not. This room needed the attention from housekeeping AND maintenance. After being passed around to different departments, housekeeping was finally sent and at best did a mediocre job at cleaning again. Maintenance then came to address an air conditioning problem and after waiting in our room for 3 hours on the day we arrived to be told it may be fixed and to give it a day or two was not acceptable. We were told that we had to wait a day or 2 before we could change rooms. After numerous complaints and days of poor at best air conditioning we were switched to another room. This room was cleaner and seemed to be in batter shape (no broken, cracked tiles and bathroom in working order) but the air conditioning was just a tad better. I would almost understand if the whole resort was this way but the other 2 rooms in our party had fully functioning air conditioning units and a better appearance to them. Another frustrating thing is when you arrive you are told you need to make reservations for the Ala cart restaurants but then told that they are all booked up and that now you need to check back every morning for cancellations One of the reasons we choice this resort and location was because of the restaurant options. It was a disappointment to find out once there that we didn't have any options because occupancy was full. .

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.
