I'd rate this a 3.5 Short version of review: (I wrote in more detail below if you want it). This place was good. My wife and I (in our 40's), with 3 teenagers (18,16,13) stayed there July 14-21 2-14 and all had a good time. Definitely has areas that could be improved (restaurants, activities) and areas they excelled (extremely clean,... More

To start this off I have traveled the world and stayed in many resorts to include sleeping in huts in Afghanistan. I am not picky. We stayed for a week in room 4173. Beach and pool are great. Bar staff is awesome. Rest of resort needs massive work. Like others--not sure where these extremely positive reviews are coming from. Food.... More

My husband and I were at the resort for 7 nights from July 09. It was our first time in Dominican Republic and Iberostar first timers as well. We definitely had a great time but of course there's always pros and cons (right?). We are not picky for whatever but since it is not our first time in an all-inclusive... More

I stayed for a week at this hotel in the beginning of July. Everything was spectacular. Animation is non-stop, with everybody trying to have you enjoy the vacation. A lot of activities during the whole day. There is also a resident band, playing all types of music, and participating in the evening shows. Rooms are very, very clean, always with... More

Stayed 6 days at Iberostar Dominicana. Iberostar Dominicana and iberostar punta cana are sister hotels that guests at either resort has access to the other. Some restaurants are shared between these 2 hotels. The iberostar bavaro suites and grand bavaro are located next door however guests at Dominicana/punta cana do not have access to these hotels. Check in: simple and... More

I vacation often and do my research before. I don't expect a five star and have stayed at an Iberostar before and have been extremely happy but this one fell a little short on a few things. Overall the grounds of the resort were beautiful. The rooms are average and could use some TLC. The food is average and the... More

We just got back from Iberostar Dominicana 3 day's ago. It was our first time to the DR and in reading the reviews, I was skeptical about the food which is something most people complained about and was a key factor. Needless to say, our friends already booked this hotel so we agreed to join them. I will say that... More

I have stayed in several all inclusive resorts in various locations world-wide & this resort really left me wanting more. The rooms are VERY outdated. Granted, you don't really need to spend a ton of time in your room when you are on an amazing beach, but if I was on my honeymoon I would be sadly disappointed. The minibar... More

The service personnel was friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to help. Only problem was communication of the need to sign up quickly for dinner reservations the first day. We almost did not get to eat out all the days.
