We flew in to Santo Domingo, they tell you it is a two hour ride to the hotel, it is closer to 1 1/2 hours. The hotel is nice. The room is your standard room. I have stayed at another Iberostar where the rooms were much nicer. The property is not very big, it is easy to walk from one end to the other. The food is very good for an all inclusive. We stayed for 8 days and were allowed three visits to the speciality restaurants. Those were all very good. The gym is adequate although not air conditioned. One problem for us was that there are only 2 tennis courts. You have to reserve them. Typically you want to play before 9am because it gets too hot. If there are a number of tennis players at the resort, it becomes difficult to get court time. The entertainment staff that runs activities all day is exceptional. They do make the vacation special.
Overall is was a great vacation. We relaxed and had fun. With that said, I probably would not go back again. In the Ibersosar chain, this is not one of their top resorts.
The only problem that we had was not the hotel's fault. My son had an ear ache. There is a doctor in residence at the hotel. He strongly recommened that we see a pediatrician. His company would provide transportation to Punta Cana, which is 30 minutes away. My son had a minor ear infection. The bill was $615! The company is Hospiten. I feel abused and taken advantage of.
Overall, Iberostar Hacienda will provde a very good vacation.
