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 is a golf course.

Beautiful but disappointing
This was our first time to the Iberostar at Punta Cana, however, we were accompanied by friends who made many visits there. We went on their recommendation. We were struck by the beauty of the gardens and water features that proliferate the complex. There is an excellent gym and spa and the pools were large and warm. Overall, the food was plentiful with a varied choice of fare. However, all of our friends expressed their extreme disappointment at what they saw as a deterioration in the food quality, choice and service. Most of the meats and fish appeared to be undercooked and not very lean. For such a huge resort, there was only one choice of beer - Presidente. The quality was questionable with hardly two glasses tasting the same. Some nights it was fine, and on others it was completely undrinkable. The poolside had been raised for some reason. This made it difficult for some people to get in or out. They had to walk half the length of the pool to gain access. There is a ladder but it is broken and the steps are missing. Apparently, some of shrubbery that provided shade had also been removed. Some of the parasols have concrete tables. Ours was broken, with sharp jagged edges. The poolside floor had recently been replaced, however, the grout hadn't been cleaned off properly and our bags ended up covered in white powder for the first couple of days. September is not a good month to go - it was extremely hot and humid the whole time - particularly at night. It could have been worse as we narrowly missed hurricane Matthew. The outside areas have fans which don't seem to help much. There are two huge fans over the stage, however, these are switched off when the acts start, so it's difficult to sit and watch. We spent most nights in the casino as it had air conditioning. A large part of the complex is being rebuilt which meant that it was off-limits and there was a constant flow of heavy goods vehicles long into the night. At the weekend, a large group of locals turned up on what we were told was a cheap weekend deal. They basically took over one of the pools, moving sunbeds and parasols wherever they wanted and playing loud music including some rap tunes with obscene lyrics. There were many families around the pool at the time. Overall, we were disappointed - although not as much as my guests who been accustomed to much better. It's a long way to go for service and quality that can easily be matched in the med. None of us will return to this resort.More

good value for money.
Rented junior suite, larger than other rooms situated in quite area of complex. As junior suites go ,very dated no real refinements should be classed as standard. Food overall was good choices for all tastes. Large complex so crowded,usual people putting towels on chairs on the beach and pool area"s. Gardens like most Caribbean Hotels immaculate. To large a complex for me, In room safes seem to present problems.More
Great!...except for a couple of things...
The only issues I have with the resort are that the shower floors, some of the walk ways and the swimming pool areas are like walking on slippery glass (actually it IS - glass ceramic tile in some cases). Especially in the shower, I was scared to turn around at times because the tub floor is VERY slippery. The pool area has geometric pieces but they too, are very slippery. We watch a young woman slip and fall just by getting out of her chair. The walkways inside the building where the rooms are also have glass ceramic tile...very slippery when it rains or if you just get out of the pool. Probably expensive to fix, but it really should be done. Service and food preparation is exception, but the food tastes a bit different from good old USA food! Can't really be negative on that though. Overall, must be pretty good, we've been there 5 times!!More
August 25-September 4 2016
This was our second trip to Iberostar Punta Cana. We enjoyed our trip in April of 2015 so much we really didn't consider going anywhere else. We decided to return to this resort because the people are so friendly and accommodating and we enjoyed the food, drinks and atmosphere. This is still true of our visit this time. Unfortunately, there were several cons on this visit that we did not experience the last time. The biggest was the showers. There was no hot water on 4/9 nights we were there. I never went to complain about this, although anywhere you turned you could overhear people making these complaints. I understand that maintenance is required from time to time and was patient the first two days the water was cold, but It would have been nice to simply been informed what was broken and when it would be fixed. We also had an incident where the safe needed a new battery. The desk clerk told us a maintenance person would "be right there." It is their policy to have the guests in the room when the safe is being worked on, which is fine. Well, over an hour later nobody had showed up. Again, these things happen and it didn't ruin our trip. I see people complain about the food on here. The food is good. If you are on a month long vacation I could see where it could get old. For ten days I never ate anything twice - except the bacon. They have the BEST bacon. We are planning a trip back to the Dominican in April. I will be checking on here for complaints about cold water before we book here again though.More
My husband and I booked this vacation to celebrate our 25th Anniversary and had a wonderful time at this resort, it was truly a dream vacation!!! Carlos Eduardo Martinez was the Guest Services Representative that we worked with during our stay at the Iberostar Punta Cana, he was introduced to us as "Eduardo the Best"; and Eduardo, you certainly are the best!!! He cheerfully greeted us daily, inquiring how we were enjoying our stay and asking if there was anything that he could do for us; always insuring us that he was there to help if we needed anything!! The resort is beautiful and very well maintained. The rooms are clean and comfortable. I was surprised at how quiet it was at night, especially since our room overlooked the pool. We are looking forward to our next vacation, and will certainly book again at an Iberostar Resort!!More
