I was with my family of 15 people Feb. 2019. They were serving ‘CLASSICO’ alcohol. I checked with an attorney in the DR, she told me there is is no such brand. I reported this to the FBI to investigate. I assume it is bootlegged alcohol. Here’s pictures, noticed the label, I think they are photoshopped (and Blurry). DO NOT drink this alcohol. My niece was sick for 3 months- Thank God she didn’t die. Look at the bottles left of the Beefeaters

Hotel's Favorite
Feels likes coming home since this was our 4th visit to this resort. Once again very pleased with check in, our flight was earlier than check in time but was pleased to see the room was ready at 1500. I emailed weeks earlier and asked for a king size bed and got it. I wished I would have gotten the lady at the front desk's name but she was excellent. Room: Shows wear and tear and should be updated but overall decent. The daily maid service and turndown was wonderful, I would have loved to know the names so I could give them credit. I did tip 5 dollars a day since I found out years ago what they made an hour. They did excellent Room Service: Prompt service and was hoping for a more expanded menu. Nice menu but I believe it could be expanded upon/improved Mini Bar: Only missed filling 1 day out of 7 Ice: Several machines down and had to walk quite a ways to get ice, didn't mention to management. On Vacation and could use the exercise. LOL Employees to give High marks to; Mario at the buffet-have had for 5 years-like family Sophia at the buffet-have had for 5 years-like family Eduard drink server on the beach Enrique Beach lunch server Morelis waitress during the evening shows- Was exceptional and We could not have asked for a better server. So friendly and such a vibrant personality. Also such a very hard worker. Looking forward to seeing all the above next year. Grounds: The grounds are so well maintained and beautiful The whole grounds keepers should be commended for the fantastic job they do. Beach: No problem getting a hut to relax at during the day Dining: Japanese and Mediterranean are by far the best choices. Buffett always offers a nice selection.

We booked through Vacation Express for our honeymoon and LOVED it! We got the honeymoon package and we enjoyed the extra benefits with it! Such as the couples massage, private beach dinner, chocolate covered strawberries & champagne in our room, door banner, etc. Since we used Vacation Express, the company Sun Wing was in charge of us during our stay. They had transportation from the Punta Cuna airport that was only a 20 min drive away. Theodore was our representative with Sun Wing and we are so grateful for him! He saved our trip from being a train wreck. Anything we needed and he made sure it got done! We can't be happier with his services!!! I highly recommend you go through Vacation Express or Sun Wing, just so he can be your onsite rep for you while on your vacation. He helped us book our excursions and helped with any questions or problems that we had. He also spoke good English. Overall we liked the resort and will be staying at Iberostar resorts again. Most of the staff was very friendly and was easy to have conversations with. Take a lot of small bills to tip with. You will have a maid in the morning and then a turn down service in the evening. They keep your room spotless while there. Golf cart drivers go around the resort all day to take you around. The resort is big, but in a good way. Room buildings only have 8 rooms together. 4 on top and 4 on bottom. You can't have a bad room because there is pretty landscaping everywhere. The rooms were extremely clean, updated, and roomy. There is lots of restaurant options and amenities. The food was all good and fancy. The steakhouse was our favorite restaurant. Make all your restaurant reservations the first night you get there. They wont want to let you, but make them let you or restaurants may be all booked up. We don't drink much but there was plenty of alcohol. The spa was nice and we loved our massages. The pools were beautiful and had plenty of options for lounging or activities. The beach towel service was nice and the towels were huge! The beach was always nice and you could easily find cabanas. Seaweed was bad on the beaches when we were there, but the resort cleaned it up. Plus it's a beach. There will be seaweed. The beach and water are great for anyone who enjoys to snorkel. We found nice coral rocks full of life shortly off the shore (along the rope boundary). So take your masks & snorkels! Be careful walking out in the water though because you will find rocks. We really liked the onsite dive charter, Dressel Divers. 100% recommend them (see separate review for that). Also booking at the Selection Bavaro gets you access to the "lower" resort which is kind of neat. It doesn't grant you access to the "higher" sister resort, but you won't miss much except for saving money. The only thing is if you dislike kids. We didn't mind the kids at all at the Bavaro Selection. You didn't even notice them honestly. Between the three sister resorts, you are very secure and safe. Off the main road, you go through security gates and then drive through acres to hit the resort. There is security everywhere. Also they have a supposedly famous golf course on site if that's your thing. We would 100% recommend this resort to anyone!

This is our 3rd time to Punta Cana and the 2nd time at this hotel. The hotel itself is in good shape. Our room was large and clean. The pools are great. We loved the zero-entry pool because of our 1-year-old. It's very easy for little ones to get in and out of the pool. The food was average for an all-inclusive. We had great service at the front desk, but the service is hit or miss for the wait staff or cleaning staff. Everyone was nice enough though. I really wish they had more music and activities near the pool and beach areas. After staying at many Iberostar's in the past, I feel that this hotel was not as "active". Overall, it's a great family-friendly resort.

This was for a wedding group in May - we were a group of 55 and Iberostar was highly recommended by agencies when we were searching for a perfect place in the Dominican, reviews were mostly positive and we booked rooms more than a year in advance. We were told our suites would be in the same area but it wasn't due to us arriving late? First of all, our flights were delayed!! We absolutely had no control over this... Upon check in, staff were absolutely cranky as it was past midnight and a group of 55 just came in wanting to check in, fine let's just get to our clean rooms oh wait... Ants, sand-y water and smelly sheets - this wasn't the case for everyone but enough to request to changes. The front desk agent, scoffed and said our group has too many problems then shooed us away. Later in that day we made reservations for all of us in one of their restaurants. They "lost" our reservation. Ok, let's make a new one for the next day. Nope "too last minute." We expressed our concerns to multiple staff and only met 3 useful agents BUT in another department, not front desk. Management did absolutely nothing for us until the second last day. Everytime we made any type of complaint, we were shooed away - litreally with their hands. We asked to speak to management the very first day, and no one was ever available. About the property, we went when they were doing renovations. They were so busy with that they didn't care to clean up the beach (kelp, tree branches) the rooms or the dining area 🤢 we found out on the 5th day, someone in the wedding group had a renovated room, it was beautiful. The wedding couple? Basis suite like everyone else. They asked for an upgrade, paid for it - only to be moved to a room that was next door to their wedding guests that didn't pay for their apparent "upgrade." There was only one 24 hour restaurant in another resort that we had access too. Of the 4 resorts nearby - selection is second tier yet we barely had 4.5 star service. We had no choice but to order room service, cold food, same seasoning on every item on the menu... The fruits were good? Anyway, I'm triggered we went to a 4.5 star resort for the wedding week that was under renovations, not everything was open and the beach was dirty. Yikes
