This Hotel was really great and Our time here flew by. Melissa Foy helped Us get a room that met Our needs and She was really nice. The value here is amazing and there is a joyful happiness that permeates this place. The buffets were fine and there was always something good to eat-The Ocean Front Buffet has an unbelievable view. I loved La Pagoda where the food, service and decor were stellar. The only negative was La Sibila which had poor food and service but the decor was nice-it didnt really matter as We went to the buffet after Dinner. The entire place was very clean and the Staff couldnt be nicer. I loved Our room-the beds and pillows were so comfortable-The bathroom, shower and toiletries were awesome-The Maid Service was excellent-the decor was great-the room was big-the balcony had a view of the ocean-also there was great soundproofing. The grounds were a tropical paradise. Oh and the recently redone pool was incredible. There were always plenty of loungers at the pool and beach. When I asked for more Diet Coke and water it was re stocked very quickly and plentifully. The Dominicana which shares facilities with this Hotel was equally great but not as quiet as The IB Punta Cana and I would happily stay there as well. Iberostar has spent lots of money in upgrades at both of these Hotels and it shows. I checked out the IB Bavaro Suites and it looked kind of run down and in need of a renovation and paled in comparison to IB Punta Cana and Dominicana. The other cool thing is that if You want excitement You can go to The Dominicana which always has something going on and if You want quiet You have The Punta Cana. I was worried about noisy Kids but the there was no problem. I think this place would be great for Anyone. There was a laid back vibe and a Dominican sense of place.We also stayed at IB Grand Bavaro and had a day pass to The Hard Rock and I will review these Hotels separately. I liked Iberostar Punta Cana the best of all and hope to return. The crazy part is how low the price is. Also the beach was great and the People staying here were very diverse and nice. The TA reviews were right-this place is Great. One other thing-I would recommend booking this Hotel on a website that offers a no penalty cancellation in case Your plans change. STAY HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!
