The people who work there are so nice! The food is good. Very good for families with kids!! Comfortable stay. This is the second time I stay. And I'm always happy to go again in the near future. Their drinks and cigars are also very good.

I visited the resort in Summer 2014. There are ample beds and umbrellas for both the pool and beach. We normally went to the beach in the morning and then to the beds between the pool and beach when the wind on the beach starts to pick up, as a face full of sand isn’t a good look for anyone....

Visited Iberostar August 2014 from the Bahamas. We traveled from Nassau to the Turk & Caicos Islands and took InterCaribbean to the DR.

The rooms are ok. Not 5 star. The bathrooms are quite dated. The beds lumpy and furniture dated. The bar staff are not that welcoming. They make you feel that you are bothering them. They don't engage much in polite conversation. When you ask for an international drink you are not sure if you get it. The buffet restaurant -... More
