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.

HOTEL - Very large but everything is within walking distance. Pool area was very nice and with no swim up bar it was very relaxing and excellent for kids. FOOD - Lobster and crab for lunch twice was a real treat and buffets had a great variety and lots of location choices. No wait time for breakfast for whatever you wanted and Buffala Mozzarella was a surprise. For a la carte, French (adults only) was excellent, Steak and Seafood restaurants were good, as for the Asian I would pass as there is no Teppanyaki cook in front of you. BEACH - Lots of umbrellas and very relaxing with little to no vendors. The sand could have used a morning grooming but as in most of Dominican it is a very long and nice walking beach. The water was ok but the area did have quite a bit of seaweed . ROOMS - We were located near the pools with a Family Room and with 5 people it would have been better with another bathroom but it met our needs. HINTS - Book the a la cartes as soon as you get there as they fill up quick. I would recommend this hotel for young families and overall it is very good for the Dominican Republic. We had a great time and the kids truly enjoyed their first experience at an all inclusive.More

We stayed last week at this resort for our annual family vacation (ages 21 -58). There were 6 of us. Last year we stayed at the Princess in Playa Del Carmen in Mexico. We really enjoyed the all-inclusive vacation and the resort. We had heard that Iberostar was a cut above so we decided to choose the Iberostar Punta Cana. Well I'm starting to wonder about the validity of these ratings because I did not view this property as excellent. I agree with the ratings by "Spring Break" and "Would have liked it but". Positives: Check-in, the weather, the beach, and Beach Party on Thursday night. Negatives: small room, tiny frig, beach rats (aka vendors) bothering you, and the Sports Bar isn't one. The food was just ok, just average. I didn't find the staff smiling and nice. Like the food, they were pleasant but not helpful if you had a problem. I couldn't find an operational ice maker in my building for a happy hour in-room. Most of the machines were missing. My kid's room safe had the previous guest's possessions still in it. Don't the house maids have a check list? Basically, if you had a problem or concern the response was a shrug of the shoulder by staff. All in all we had fun but I would never go back to the DR. As far as the Iberostar goes,, you're paying a premium price for an average resort. There are many others to choose from with the same beach and same weather. Seek another resort.More

We just love this resort. We recently visited Iberostar Punta Cana for the third year in a row-and can't wait until we can return next year! When we first walk into the lobby - it is like returning to a familiar home. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, and the staff works so hard to maintain them. All staff are very friendly and accommodating. It is so good to see some of the same staff members: ie, Greydi, Leovaldo. We enjoy the beautiful beach and wonderful variety of food, as well as the nightly shows.More

My experience at punta cana.
We have been for honeymoon at Iberostar Punta Cana. Cleaning room... 10/10 Friendly stuff... 10/10 Variety of food... 10/10 Guest information... 10/10 Inside entertainment... 10/10 (always something to see or do...) Quality of food 8/10 (need more sea food!! and fix the soups!) Quality of drinks 8/10 (some had strange flavor but excellent mojito. Champagne=not good at all!!!) Internet wifi 0/10 (you have to pay 35$ for a week.) Locals outside the hotels... see you as a big freaking dollar!!!More
Positives: Perfect weather, beautiful beach, fun souvenir shopping/reasonable prices after negotiation, nice rooms, great service/friendly employees, fun entertainment venues and excursions Negatives: Illness (from severe to mildly nagging, in varying degrees for nearly everyone in our group), food not great but adequate, beach chairs in short supply unless you wake up early to reserve one and I mean EARLY, and unrelated to resort, NIGHTMARE at the airport with security (pulled bag, made me unpack it, almost missed flight, bag didn't make it back on plane, NOT FUN) In summary: This is my second (and last) trip to DR. Just haven't had great luck here and that's a shame because it is a gorgeous place with truly wonderful people. DR Travel Tip: Pack some Cipro. I'm not kidding.More

Liquor stores often double as bars around these parts, and that’s exactly what you get here. But that doesn’t mean the place…View details »
