Not the experience I expected

I have vacationed at other Iberostar Resorts in other island and my mistake was thinking that this resort was going to live up to the other resorts, and it certainly did not. First and foremost the whole resort is open, there is very and I mean VERY MINIMAL air conditioning. It is the most uncomfortable thing to eat your dinner in pure humidity & heat; in addition, the resort clearly has an issue with ice because they serve every drink warm and you have to continuously request ice! This brings me to the food, if you are going to this resort to expect to at least have a few Dominican dishes, you will be highly mistaken. The food was a major let down, if you can book reservations do so but only to the steak house and Mexican Resturant( the only Resturant with AC!) because the sea food Resturant is terrible and you will get tired of terrible buffet food. The servers were rude and the room was moldy and outdated. I requested an extra pillow for me and my guest and they refused to provide the pillow. A positive was definitely the pool and beach. The resort has a number of pools that you can enjoy and the beach was cool, but full warning it has tons of seaweed!!!! And the WiFi was pretty strong..... unfortunately my trip was way too many days spent at Iberostar Punta Cana, if your looking for a relaxing trip, then I suggest no more then 3days here if you can’t find any other resort in Punta Cana.

Poor Trip to the Iberostar

Upon arriving at the resort we were welcomed nicely by a few of the gentlemen at the front. We got the check in desk and were informed we would have to wait 3 hours to check in. This 3 hours turned into 4.5. Not only was the gentleman at the front desk unpleasant, when asking if we could have one bed, as oppose to two, he laughed at us....then proceeded to tell us we could "upgrade" to a room with a king bed and an "ocean view" for XXX amount of dollars. We did this, only to ensure we would have a great trip. We arrived in our room and the only "view" we had was the top of the workers building, some palm trees and a tiny piece of the ocean. Disappointed. Our room not only was not worth the view upgrade, but the room itself was very sub-par. The shower leaked, the air conditioning was never accurate, and there was a large gap underneath our door to the outside. We enjoyed the open buffets, and highly recommend making reservations for the dinners, as those were VERY good. However, avoid going on any "trips" to the other resorts for a "free massage" because it is just there way of trying to get you to purchase a VERY expensive time share....this took 4 hours out of our morning and the woman we spoke with was not only very pushy, but extremely rude when we repeatedly told her we were not interested...... I was very excited about this trip, however after being there I am BEYOND disappointed in the money I spent, now knowing I could have gone somewhere and had a way better experience.

Terrible

There are major things that are wrong but some good things as well. Good: -Clean -The Garden is Nice -Doorstep to Beach -Drinks are decent -fridge in room is restocked with 2 waters, 2 colas, and , 2 beers everyday. -relatively easy to book excursions and night activities at concierge Now the bad: -Front desk seemed constantly disheveled and disorganized. They kept handing passports to the wrong people. It took us almost 90 minutes to get checked in for 15 rooms. -The power went out twice in my room, -AC is terrible in the rooms -the buffet was absolutely terrible. I would give a negative 5 out of 10 I understand not expect the best food at buffets, but there was nothing pleasant about any of the food. -The beach is nothing but seaweed, there are mounds and mounds of it -the pool has no swim up bar, though there is a bar close by. This is nitpicky, I know, but that's one of the things I expect a resort to have. -The casino, although opens at noon, there are no dealers until 3-4 and it's only 1-2 dealers in there. Not that big of a deal in the grand scheme of things -another small thing was there was little to no activities. Usually these resorts have hype people and little coordinated things to keep people entertained.

Was a joke when making dinner reservations, we were told every restaurant was booked and when you see half the tables open. Not sure how they determine reservations. The food is the same in the buffet for lunch and dinner. After 2 days you are tired of eating same stuff whether its at the pool/beach restaurant or the buffet. Very disappointment for dining options. The rooms have no ventilation and really hot with no AC so there is musty smell lingering around. The bathtub was really dirty and stained with no water force in the shower.

What's to Love

It's an all-inclusive escape on sands known 'round the world - the epic Bavaro Beach.

Saying buh bye to stress with a Shiatsu massage, Swedish sauna & facials at the spa.

Stoking your metabolism with aerobics, then destressing with yoga.

Releasing your beach munchkins to Lucy's Club while you enjoy a cocktail or five.

 

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

It's 45 minutes from the airport. Don't get antsy, beach lovers. We see welcome drinks in your future.

There's a mangrove jungle walk with a mini-zoo for kids. Big kids might dig it, too.

You can tee off at the Iberostar Bavaro Golf & Club, an 18-hole golf course designed by P.B. Dye.

There's wave after wave of water sports: kayaking, windsurfing, diving, you name it.
