Resort was good for my wife and I. Breakfast subpar. Lunch and dinners were very good. Pools good. Beach good. Service lacked at times. Some servers were outstanding ( MELVIN). Room was clean and mini bar restocked daily. Price for what we paid was good and we feel like we got what we paid for. Monday's dinner at buffet was a nice surprise with grilled lobster tails on buffet. Had 4. If u r expecting "secrets resort". Then pay the price. We will return here again.

Great Vacation!

Just stayed at the Iberostar Dominica the first week of April. 2 adults (age 42-45), 4 kids (age 10, 13,14,15). We all had a great time! I'm going to write a very honest review. I think some people are just too picky or stuck up if they have something negative to say about this resort. (And I can be a little stuck up at times myself) 1.) The grounds are IMMACULATE and beautiful. I felt like I was at Disney, not a speck of anything out of place as your walking the grounds. Lush tropical landscaping, great spots for pictures everywhere! Grounds crews work from sun up and even into the dark hours of night, every day, making sure everything is perfect. 2.) Beach, great! They got rid of the seaweed unlike the RUI next door. There are TONS of tiki huts for shade you just have to beat the early- early birds out to snatch one up! (and I mean early) 3.) Pool - so nice, huge, plenty of room for everyone. Tons of seating and umbrellas around the pool. No swim up bar - bummer - but not a deal breaker. Pool Bar is right in between both pools. 4.) Rooms - nice and comfy, cleaned daily if you like. Maids make pretty hearts and animals out of towels and tropical flowers.! It's the little thoughtful things. 5.) Food - We ate at the seafood restaurant and the steak restaurant and they were very good. The Japenese one smelled amazing but we did not get in. They do book up, but the staff sets it up for you at check in, they take your top picks. It's not America people!!! Was it gourmet? No, but it was definitely a few steps up from the buffet. Now the buffet, it was also good. No one got sick, no one had stomach aches and we all ate ALOT all week. Does the variety get to you by the end of the week? Sure! Of course it will as it would at any resort. 6.) Staff - AWESOME. Everyone from the maid staff to the grounds keepers. Everyone is friendly. 7,) Entertainment - they have some good shows every night. The Lion King, a rock band night...we missed the Michael Jackson night....kids also had a teen room to go too. Ping pong tables were a hit. They were so tired at the end of every day anyway it didn't matter. Daily kids activities which our kids were too cool to take part in, but they sounded fun. There's entertainment by the pool daily and beach activities, volley ball and soccer games being played all the time. 8.) Excursions - if you want to book an excursion see Marcello #13 on the beach. He gives GREAT prices. Beat the hotel prices big time. I would def go back to this resort again. Did not want to leave! Book this hotel and you will not be disappointed! If you are, then you need to check yourself, chill, grab a drink and go relax! Life is too short to sweat the small stuff! Thank you Iberostar staff and management for making our week so great!

Loved the resort

I loved Iberostar Dominicana, the atmosphere is amazing and ALL of the staff seem to love their jobs, always smiling, willing to help. The entertainment every night was different and very well put together. The only thing i would like is more of a variety of food.

Great!

I was overall happy with our stay. My only complaint was that in order to get chairs at the pool or beach, we had to wake up early and couldn’t enjoy the morning. Also, the buffet food was just okay. I liked the specialty restaurants, but didn’t like we were only allowed to reserve 2 nights for our stay. It was misleading and we were under the impression we could go to those Each night. We also never had anyone come get our drink orders at the pool or beach which we were under the impression would happen. Other than this, we really enjoyed our stay and the weather/resort was all really nice!

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.
