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.

Excellent resort. Rooms are fine; could use an update, but perfectly sufficient (you don't spend much time in the room). The good: Resort is huge. It was kids' winter break so we were afraid it would be packed, but given the size of the place, we never felt crowded. Ate only at the buffet, which was great for adults and kids (who ate nutella for breakfast and pizza and hotdogs for lunch and dinner, which was always consistent). Julia and Yesinia were super attentive to us, and I give them major compliments! Pool was awesome. Multiple areas for kids, shallow to deeper (but not too deep) areas. Beach was beautiful but water was pretty wavy most days. Not sure if that was due to the Atlantic waters (remember, it's NOT the Caribbean sea) or the rain clouds overhead, so this may be seasonal, but we really could not swim in the ocean much, which was disappointing. The grounds were gorgeous. Always clean, and beautiful. A welcome change from freezing NYC! There's a small but very fun water park at the Iberostar Bavaro Suites, which is a 5-10 minute walk away, and you have access to it. Kids loved it. The bad (and please keep in mind, it's NOT THAT BAD, just worth mentioning): Wifi is $35 for the week. Not astronomical, and worked so so, but disappointing at a "5 star all-inclusive" in 2015. It wasn't working in our room, and despite calling, no one fixed it. Maybe it was better that way, so I could be disconnected a bit, but if you pay for something, you want it to work. Finally, there were no umbrellas in the room! I've been to MANY similar resorts and there's always an umbrella in the room. It rained hard for a few of the days, and it would have been nice to know we had to bring one. Admittedly, the 3rd person I mentioned this to at the front desk (since the first 2 just shrugged their shoulders and said that's the way it is) was able to get us 2 umbrellas on our 3rd days there, which was useful. Overall, an awesome place. Kids and adults had a blast and didn't want to leave. We'd come back.More
This was the third year in a row we have stayed here or at the dominicana. The staff is the greatest from check in through your entire stay. The food is good the drinks are great and the ground's are immaculate. Jenny, Joni and Maldinado at the lobby bar on the Dominicana side are the greatest very outgoing. The room's while nice could use some upgrades but sufficient. Looking forward to next year already.More

Annual best friend trip to the carribean
My best friend & I go on a vacation to the Carribean every winter. This was our 3rd time to the Dominican, 1st time to this property. We have stayed at other Iberostar hotels. We enjoyed our stay. The staff was friendly. The oriental, mexican & steakhouse restaurants were delicious. The buffets were good, we could always find something we liked. The property was beautiful & very clean. One complaint we had was the beach was very crowded & we had to get up early to save our chairs. The palm umbrellas were very close & you had to sit on top of people. Another complaint is my friend went to the spa for a facial & did not like it & felt it wasn't worth the $120 she paid.More
