Vacation of a Lifetime, Absolute DREAM

Mere words and photos cannot begin to describe how wonderful my wife and my five night stay was at this magnificent resort. From the moment you arrive until the time you leave, the staff works tirelessly to not just provide for your needs and desires, they make you feel like royalty. Within two days, most of the staff knew our names, knew what we liked to drink, knew where we liked to sit in the buffets, and would do all they could to anticipate any of our wishes without our asking. I have been to fairly opulent places, but never to this degree and never even coming close to this level of personal care and attention. Since we went in September, there were only a few handfuls of couples at this adult-only retreat. The wait staff must have outnumbered the guests three to one. This is a peaceful, relaxing stay… not the frat-boy, Spring Break party HQ of other resorts. This has a refined, relaxed, and definitively continental Europe feel to it, but with the warmth and generosity of the Dominican staff. My wife and I will never forget their kindness and constant smiles. A special thanks to our trio of butlers who made dining reservations for us and provided unasked-for personal touches in the room while we were out. Jimmy, Ayendi (Boom Boom), and Junior were great. Thanks to our waiters Franklin, Samuel, and a host of others whose names escape me. Thanks to the staff that work behind the scene, maintaining the luxurious grounds. Lastly, much thanks to Carlos, the tireless pool waiter who works his tail off all day long under the hot sun bringing drinks to the guests at the pool and the beach. He is a real treasure and someone who takes great pride in his work. We could have stayed there forever. Aside from hotel, the booking through CheapCaribbean made things incredibly easy and smooth. The transport from to and from hotel can be confusing if it is not handled for you. The AmStar service was top-notch. Just wish they could be in the terminal to save less-informed travelers from the transport sharks.

No Trouble In Paradise

My wife and I were nervous about traveling to Dominican Republic with all of the Americans dying mysteriously. However, I am glad we decided not to cancel our trip. The Iberostar Grand in Punta Cana was a dream come true and the resort was worth every penny. We look forward to visiting the resort next year.

Just OK

Place needs more activities after 7:00 when the pool bar closes. Would be nice if the casino was on the adult only side instead of the family side.

No AC

The ac in our room went out the last 2days of our trip. After getting the run around initially they finally had someone come and work on the unit but it didn’t get repaired. Normally we could understand but this resort costs much more than other Iberostars. The entire room was covered in condensation due to the humidity and we had to lay towels everywhere on the floor in order to walk safely because the tile was so slick. Not what you expect for the price.

What's to Love

It's an all-inclusive, all-aahsome, all-adults escape haven.

The butlers and pillow menu - you'll get used to living large.

Destressing at the luscious oceanfront spa with Turkish baths and Thai massages.

The cool towels and cocktails you're offered when you're feeling a bit warm.

 

What We'd Change

Although evening entertainment is provided, the resort can be quiet at night. If you're looking to spice things up, visit the casino at the next-door sister hotel.

 

Why You Should Go

It's 35 minutes from the airport. Vacay cocktails will begin pronto.

You can golf at the 18-hole course designed by P.D. Dye at the sister property.

Don't miss zip lining over the rainforest canopy at nearby at Taino Mountain.

There are activities out the wazoo: tai-chi, spinning, ping pong tennis and oceans of water sports.
