We traveled to Iberostar Dominicana as a family. The staff were VERY friendly, so much so that all you'd hear was hello all day (in Spanish of course.) As an American I'm not used to "haggling," so tha gets a little old with the vendors, but most of them are pretty good natured, and they are just trying to make a living like anybody else. The food was very good; the grilled perch excellent! The entertainment was so-so, but the performers do put a lot of energy into it. Even though it was the off season, the resort was always kept very neat (which I can't say the same about the highways roadsides.) The front desk staff were wonderful, the wait staff came to recognize our family after only a couple of days. It was disappointing to see how few guests seemed to be tipping. And yes, I do realize that this is an all-included package, but will it hurt you to leave a couple of $$ fro the wait staff? These people are working 12-16 hour days, probably 10-12 days in a row, but there they were every morning with a smile on, and a warm greeting. We'd stayed at Iberostar in Playa del Carmen, but I can't decide yet which I prefer??? However, I did think the staff in Punta Cana were more welcoming. SO, will we use Iberostar for our next all-included resort vacation. You betcha! Enjoy! P.S. The air conditioning/ fan combo was downright chilly!
