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 had a fantastic time staying at this resort. The temperature was close to 28-29 degrees Celsius and it only rained once during our weeklong stay this December. The food was excellent with lots of variety. There was always something to choose from for everyone. Each day there were chefs that put on a show for the guests, cooking specialty dishes on a gigantic pan for everyone to watch. The entertainment team (lead by Panthera) had us busy all day with fun activities but they really worked wonders come nightfall. Francheska, Louis, Banana, Vanessa, and many others (your names escape me) had us laughing and entertained throughout the night with so many different, interactive activities like contests, dancing lessons, shows, and so much more. Leo, our dynamic bartender, was always ready to serve up some amazing drinks, many of which were his own uniquely imagined specialities. For those who wanted some peace and quiet, there was plenty of time and space to relax. Our room was spacious and well kept. The beach was also spectacular with many shady spots for those who werenât looking to tan. The ocean was warm and pleasant. Overall, this was our favourite resort from all the ones we have stayed at during our travels throughout the Caribbean, particularly Cuba and Jamaica. We will definitely be coming back and we recommend it to all those interested in having a great getaway!More

The Iberostar stay
Nice room, but furniture is old and linens are old and washed too many times. Safe was not opening until you try 10 times. The room was clean. The food was below average. Poor food choice and not very tasty. Most staff was welcoming and helpful, but not all of them. Poor entertainment. Not enough of professional and skilled entertainers. The contests were boring and too vulgar, especially for children. The beach was dirty.More
Could be much better. Really disappointed.
I could not get a full night of sleep however early or late i went to bed. Families in the halls are screaming at 7h30 am. Hotel staff starts cleaning around 9h30 and shouts across the floors. At night, the bad sound insulation makes any passerby sound much louder then they actually are. And the curtains are a joke as they can barely manage to keep out the balcony light out. Let alone sunlight. The staff was friendly, mainly the lobby staff. Other restaurants and facilities varied greatly. Food was decent. Nothing to make me forget the food poisoning i experienced on my last night when I visited the seafood restaurant "Marinero". I could attribute all these faults to my own constitution, but I've sleep way more soundly elsewhere and even much so when I consume as much alcohol as I did in this stay. The beach was nice and the decor pretty. If you can afford a bit more, go elsewhere.More
Great holiday with reservations
Returned two days ago from our eighth year at this hotel, always at this time of year. As on previous visits the public areas and rooms were very clean, though the rooms whilst comfortable are in some need of refurbishment. The food selection in the buffet restaurants were themed each night, Italian, Spanish, Oriental etc, and of good quality and variety. If the themed menu did not suit there was always pizza, pasta, fish or something off the grill cooked to order. The restaurant staff were always friendly, courteous and efficient. The speciality restaurants are very much a mixed bag. The steak house very good with a good selection of steak, chicken or salmon. Oriental, varied menu with superb starter buffet. Room temperature a little on the cool side. Mexican, good choice of menu with plenty of non mexican alternatives. Fish restaurant awful, do not go near. Gourmet restaurant, went on romantic night but there was nothing romantic about a saxophone being played at full volume all evening. It was so loud we left before the main course arrived. Good selection of drinks on the all inclusive menu and barmen are happy to make any cocktail they have the ingredients for. Beer on tap unfortunately no stronger than water. Suspect all drinks are watered down to some extent . This year there was a big problem with the amount of seaweed in the sea, which the hotel seemed unable to clear efficiently from the beach. This has never been a problem in previous years. Plenty of comfortable sun beds available on the beach with plenty of shade if wanted. Entertainment quality mixed. The version of the Lion King was impressive as was the circus acrobats. Other shows consisted of singing and dancing Caribbean style padded out with Mr & Mrs type shows. Overall a good holiday in a nice hotel.More

Punta Cana in November
You can't beat the beaches in the Dominican Republic. The Iberostar did a great job in making the beach and the all inclusive resort an overall experience. The staff there was warm and welcoming. The cleanliness of the bathroom in our room could use some improvement, in particular just attention to detail. Seeing as we came for the beach experience, I guess we were able to live with that. The food left much to desired as it did not differ from one eating hall to the other, in fact it was rather repetitive throughout our 7 night stay. The only time we felt we had a decent tasting meal was when we ate at the specialty restaurants, Mexican and beach front steak house.More
