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 went to Iberostar Puerto Vallarta last year, property was new, staff excellent and had great time. This year we decided on iberostar punta Cana and property was older and we had language barriers here (we're American). Overall, it was just OK. I was surprised at all the Europeans here (French and Germans mostly), but the different cultures were interesting to be around.More

Losing its Star appeal
Was the fourth time we have stayed here and probably the last. Had emailed ahead for a room high up near to the beach, with a pool view. Well done exactly what we got when we arrived, booked a la carte restaurants straight away. Then listened about Iberostar club promotion, explained that it wasn't for us. Room had recently been refurbished, it was clean and adequate, bed was huge and very comfy. The safe as usual didn't work and there was a fault with the TV, I contacted reception who sent a maintenance guy. He fixed the safe but said I would have to report the TV again. We were tired so reported it the next day and it was replaced. The next day the hotel started to fill up and staff were busy finishing off refurbishing rooms, sadly this went on until 23:00 at night with banging and drilling. When I spoke to guest services/reception to complain they said I had to speak to some one else or they weren't in when I tried again. Then asked what did I want, ( would have been happy with a manager just to listen and apologise but this never happened) Guest services then phone me in the room three times and asked me about the Iberostar club promotion, as well as another three times in reception when I changed dinner reservations, became very annoying and I wish they put this much effort into customer service. A few days in the hairdryer stopped working, it took 6 attempts before any one came and fixed it. The Beach was lovely white powdery sand. Blue sea, some seaweed, long so that you could walk along it, it was very crowded with parasols that got very busy, There is a large pool, also gets busy, people start reserving chairs from 06:30, we were early risers and couldn't believe the amount of people who reserved chairs then returned 2 to 3 hours later. You can use two buffets and 6 a la carte restaurants, service was generally good but definitely less staff who speak English. Food was plentiful, with varied choices but was often very bland even the a la cartes, the worst being the Mexican ( the beef in the tacos extremely bland and chewy) The grounds and gardens were very beautiful and well kept, I don't normally name people but Fransico and Leovaldo Lobby bar were excellent and Damaris is the best waitress ever. There is now free Wifi, Overall service and food not as good as previously, seemed very busy at times and would only return if price was extremely cheap. Other hotels have improved greatly with food and service. More
Great Place For A Vacation
Had a great time. Flanagan Valdez at the front desk made sure we got reservations at the different restaraunts and was very helpful throughout the stay. We went in late November before Thanksgiving and it was not too crowded. The beaches were very nice and the staff made sure all our needs were taken care of. We got an all inclusive package. The food was good and there were always drinks available. We are planning on returning there.More
We had a fabulous stay at this hotel. The staff were great, they work very hard at making sure that everyone is happy, without being too intrusive. The location was perfect, not too far from the airport and right on the beach. The food was very good, with plenty of variety, a good mix of buffet and more formal options and available throughout the day and evening too. The alcohol available is not the big brand names, and the cocktail mixers are almost 'packet mix', which is a shame given the amount of fresh tropical fruits available but every drink option is covered. Wine choice was fab. The rooms are very clean, light and airy, the beds very comfortable. We were in a block away from the lobby and entertainment area, and it was very quiet, with no noise from other guests. The rooms could probably do with a makeover, the bathroom had a few knocks and chips but all the facilities worked well,including the shower. Perhaps some of the wiring could do with boxing in, but it all looked perfectly safe. The block we were in was being decorated ( very discreetly, no noise or inconvenience at all) whilst we were there so perhaps a refurb is already underway. The swimming pools were a good size, with a shallow one for kids. The poolside area was very clean, with plenty of sun beds and shaded areas. We were also able to use the restaurants, bar and entertainment areas of the sister hotel in the same complex, which was only a few yards away. I would definitely recommend this hotel, and would happily stay there again. More

Love, love, love this resort. Best of Punta Cana
Have had better and better experiences each time we go. From summer to Spring Break to Christmas they resort outdoes itself. The management team does an awesome job. The daily grills outside are a highlight (please remember to sneak the chefs a beer) it is hot work for them and give the service workers a tip, they deserve it. We bring $ 1 American bills just to tip the wait staff and the room cleaners, they work so hard and it is just a good way to show our appreciation, plus they appreciate it and will give you better service. Booked for Christmas and can't wait for the Christmas Eve gala!!More
