I stayed with my wife in this hotel in November 2012. It was our first time in Iberostar. My wife and I travel at least two times per year to Caribbean for last 6 years. This hotel was best we have ever stayed.
It started from airport when we were picked up by minivan and it was only for us. We arrived after midnight and were hungry. We found overnight buffet. It had no guests however cook and waitress were on duty and we could enjoy our freshly made meal with drinks.
We had room on second floor which was not beside beach however we did not feel inconvenience because even from farthest room from beach your walking distance to the ocean is really few minutes.
Food was really good. They grilled beef and chicken just on the beach. Fish and soup were delicious There were plenty of tropical fruit and ice cream we really enjoyed.
Service was great as well. There are always waitresses offering you drink. One thinks we really liked there were no line at the buffet or bar. You want something you get it right away.
Entertainment people were working really hard and make our stay enjoyable. Good thinks they introduced hotel management to the guests. One last detail we REALLY APPRECIATED hotel has separately tables for smokers.
There is no need talk about beach because beaches in Punta Cana are very good and this place is not exception.
What more this hotel can do for guest? Have smokers in separate place on the beach. Allow access to other Iberostar hotels without booking appointment. We were going just to see Iberostar Grand however we were asked to book appointment first.
On the last note I would like to say we are definitely planning to come back to this resort.
