A spa hotel that’s full of luxurious touches, with a big pool and Bavaro beach in throwing distance.
A lagoon pool and roomy spa take top billing here. There are 7 restaurants on the tick-list, too, plus shops and bars in the hotel grounds.
You’re only a few paces from Bavaro’s sandy beach. Flamingos and turtles wander the pretty grounds to the back of the hotel, and in walking distance, there are 2 golf courses.

Vacaciones con la Familia
Regarding the service provided by the staff, this was excellent. The room was quite comfortable, always clean and every day a little attention. (Little gift). Regarding the location of the hotel, this was enough away from the shopping and downtown centers, however, the hotel offers free transportation to and from the "San Juan" shopping center and center. To do this you must coordinate schedules. Facilities: the hotel has bars that run all day and there are sofas or around repoceras to relax and drink and forget everything. The food was plentiful and quite varied in the buffet restaurant. In the letter restaurant had a small buffet and then the choice of silver letter. Any choice you make will be good. What I liked most was the service. This is because the trip was done with my 10 months and I complicated the issue of their meals, since she does not like baby food packaged only likes preparing my wife. Then we talk to such problem with the chef (yuneisy Polo) and she kindly prepared us food every day. To me that was priceless. What I did not like was the lack of time. So I recommend at least 10 days of lodging.More
The resort was very nice, but the food was not. I doubt we would take another chance on an Iberostar Resort. Currently I am looking for another vacation spot which doesn't include Iberostar resorts . The buffet isn't too bad except they serve the same thing everyday. A high light one day was when they made seafood Paella. The line for the food was unbelievable. At lunch one day I decided I would have a salad, but they don't have any dressings. Yes they do have oil and vinegar, but I asked one of the chefs & he pointed to the mayo & mustard. It just seemed like they could have come up with some dressings that are not too expensive so they don't blow there food costs. Don't waste your time on the seafood restaurant it had to be the worst.

Expectations Met or Exceeded
I went in mid July. I would encourage everyone to have expectations aligned with what you're paying. You're not paying for a five star so be careful about what you expect. In short, I would say that they did everything they could to provide an excellent experience. Everything met or exceeded my expectations - the service, the room, the entertainment, the food. The food especially exceeded my expectations. One day they had paella with crab and half lobster tails for lunch. I had lobster at two of the specialty restaurants and another time at lunch. Didn't expect that. I was satisfied with the other food too. One thing not mentioned much in these reviews is the snorkeling. Free snorkeling is big for me. There is none in front of Iberostar Punta Cana but there is a reef within the swim area in front of the sister Iberostar next door. Not fantastic, but free and sometimes interesting. On the other side is a different resort with far less people on the beach. You know why? Unlike the Iberostar there is no shade provided. I was so thankful that all the seating had excellent shade. I am a Southern California beach guy but the sun was too hot to lay out comfortably for an extended period. The pool seating as mentioned is next to impossible due to an abundance of kids. Things I wish were different: wish they had free internet, wish they had a jacuzzi that did not require a reservation to use (although the kids would monopolize that probably), wish that a staff member would take people out on the Hobie Cats. (You can take a lesson for $35 and pay $50 for a rescue!) Labor is cheap folks. You'd think someone could take you out for a quick sail. Very pleasant stay me me and my family.More

Cut to the quick: Grounds A-, Room C-, Food at buffet D+, Beach B+, Food at "restaurants" C+. Pool B-. Wouldn't come back here, needs improvements, and the structures are showing their age. My entire family returned ill with stomach issues.More
Not worth the Money
We went here in December 2014. The rooms were ok, no major issues there. The staff was not very pleasant. There was little to do unless you wanted to fight for a spot to sit at the bar and drink. The food was limited, not much to choose from, it seemed every place to eat had the same food. The was not food available except at certain times. If you missed a meal you would just go hungry until the next. We were so bored at times we went back to our room and took a nap. We paid for upgrades and never received them. In fact when we went to the front desk to ask about the upgrades that we paid for they acted like they didnt understand us. We had a normal room but paid for a special one. We also were told that since we paid extra we would have spa credits, again they acted like even though we had papers stating this that they did not understand and we never received them. The beach was ok, but I have been to better. The walk to the beach was horrible, there are cute little shops on the way there. Those cute little shops had people that would do everything but chase you down and pull you into them. You were constantly being yelled at and chased by them to come look in the stores. If I wanted that then I would go to a market! If I received a free trip here I would give it away. The staff did not ever address our concerns or issues, they were limited on the English they could speak, some of them were down right rude and did not care to help us. If you want to stay here just be ready to be disappointed. Oh and you have to pay a fortune for access to very slow Wifi if you want it.More
