Great service, fantastic bungalow accommodation. Good selection of activities on site and on the beach all provided by the hotel. Try the spa for massages and various other treatments. Its quite a big site but getting around on foot is easy as its all pretty flat. If you're not up to it, you can always hop on the transport buggies... More

I stayed in this resort with my family over the summer. We booked 4 bedrooms and they all were in the same condition. The first thing to know about this place is that it is in the process of renovation. So, some part of the resort has new rooms and some have very old room and the only way to... More

Stayed here in July, great weather nice staff....except didn't get what I had paid for, which was a superior room. Booked through On the Beach and paid extra for a superior room. Upon check in I could see that SUPERIOR rooms were being advertised at $10 per night more - when I got to my room, it was not the... More

Just finished a fortnight at the IFA Villas. Arrived in the afternoon and was greeted at reception. Well, when I say greeted, I mean grunted. The staff were completely impersonal, they couldn't find our booking and might have well thrown the welcome pack at us as they hurriedly dispensed our keycards (incorrectly giving us a non-English pack). Once the reception... More

This resort was your average Dominican resort with very few differences. The main pool was a bit small, however the resort wasn't overly large so there were only a few times that it felt crowded in the pool. As with most resorts, there were never enough loungers around the pool, and because of the layout of the resort ( You... More

We stayed for 7 days with a group of 10. There were plenty of bars including a swim up bar at the pool. All amenities were a short walk from the rooms and a shuttle service was available to the beach if you didn't want to walk. The buffet restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner but I would... More

Just back from what id call a holiday from hell. My family and I booked a 10night at the IFA RESORT&SPA. On arrival we had to stand and wait almost an hour to check into our room.

So I really don't know what the 1 star reviews are about in all honesty !!! This resort is clean, well presented and stunning. Once you get used to the layout, it's fairly easy to get around, with the little shuttle carts going around the resort every ten minutes so you won't have to walk too much. The beach is... More
