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.

We've been to 10 All inclusives. This was our 6th trip to PC. We loved Ocean Blue down the beach and considered it our favorite but decided to try Iberostar as the price was right. So glad we did.... Ocean Blue's beach is washed away. We would have been very disappointed ! Iberostar has the best beach on the coastline... plenty of shady palapalas and the beach was the cleanest we saw during our walks. All the dining was open air so it didn't have that "conference center" feel that some of the other resorts do. Staff was friendly but busy. They work up to 16 hour days for 15 days straight then get to take a 4 hour bus ride home to their families for a 3 day off. They work hard and yet never complain or stop smiling. TIP THEM !!! They share tips unless you put it in an envelope with their name written in it. We arrived on a Saturday and Celina at the front desk accommodated us when we asked for a front of the building room and not a back of the building as we were given. She sent us to have lunch and when we came back.... Room with a pool view ! Again... TIP ! I found the food salty. Lots of choices. I admit I am a very plain eater and eat for nutrition not taste. So I found the foods very salty. Great fruit ! We ate at the Dominicana side for lunch as they seemed to have more choices but the Punta Cana side is literally like a picnic area which was really cool. You can have breakfast at the main buffet by the lobby or a smaller spread down at the Dominicana side at the beach. There really are so many choices .... plus the restaurants which I never bother with since it's the same food as buffet. But if you like to be waited on and have personal service then the restaurants would be worth it. The pool area is great. There are actually 2 pools side by side but it's laid out in a way that it feels like one giant pool. Again lots of shady areas. Be out by 7 a.m. if you want a pool chair or beach chair in the shade. If you want front row at the beach.... get out by 6 a.m. I could go on and on.... we went for relaxation... beach, pool, eat, drink. Mission accomplished. Leo at the lobby bar has a great voice .... and Francesco is so friendly and professional. Can't remember the girl's name but they were all spot on. Daniel too. Lobby is quiet from 6-7:30 ish and a great time to meet people. We met many from the US while sitting at the bar. Go and Enjoy. No worries. It's a great place !!!More
This was our second year to this resort. Weather is 80 degrees and not humid - PERFECT! Almost all dining rooms are open air, no A/C needed. The hotel room A/C is engaged when you close the balcony door. Every employee is happy and helpful. they have the very best employees in all functions. We were assigned a personal concierge to make the a-la-carte restaurant reservations and to help us with anything else we needed. Excellent idea. Food was very high quality at all restaurants and the buffets. Nightly entertainment is outside and at the Dominicana hotel on the same property. Exceptional talent and lots of fun. We had the same waitress in the buffet that we had last year - she recognized us as we approached her and was so happy to see us again. A wonderful surprize (VERY little turnover at the hotel!) We take a bunch of $1's and $5's so we can tip for this wonderful service, I ate enough watermelon and tomatoes to hold me until July!! We flew in/out on Saturday. The airport is a ZOO! Many, many travelers lined up in rows in a very tight space... You go throught this process three times. It took more than an hour an a half to process thru the airport. Hopefully they will build a larger airport as Aruba did and improve the process. We met someone who flew in on Wednesday and said there was no crowd. Middle of the week flights may be an issue. Can't wait to go back again. The hotel management REALLY cares about the gurests.More

It's OK , that all it is. Food: Plentiful but very bland, I saw some very questionable food handling practices. Did not bother with A La Carte I heard some very poor reviews of the fish and Mexican restaurant. The main buffet (Hispaniola) at breakfast time was never ready at open time, got annoying so the final few days we went in the Americano buffet. Accommodation / Grounds: Overall they were good, clean etc Service: The majority of the staff were very good, however we did not get our room cleaned on one day (Maid Change) and we told it was our fault. Also I got an electric shock from one of the warming plates in the buffet, when I pointed it out I was told it was my fault for not wearing shoes!!!! Pool: Showing signs of age, massive cracks around it Its hard to put my finger on what is not right the whole experience, there is nothing stand out and that is the problem "there is nothing stand out", I have been to many 5* hotels around the world and really this is not anywhere near 5*.More

We had an amazing time, the resort was clean the staff was very friendly. Food was very good and I would highly recommend this resort. The beach was beautiful long and clean, we walked every day on the beach. We loved sitting under the hut on our beach to rest and stay out of the sun for a bit.More

We just returned from our second stay at this Resort. As before, the staff is very friendly and helpful and does their best to communicate if you don't speak Spanish. We had an incident where someone tried to get into our deck slider from the outside garden. From the time we reported it to the time we left, Iberostar provided a guard out in the garden to watch the units during the day. I was impressed. The gardens and landscape are beautiful and the pools and beach are clean. The food at all the areas is good too.More
