Our family had a wonderful vacation in the D.R. and the we were very impressed with the resort. The hotel and beach were beautiful, the grounds were lush with beautiful flowers and exotic birds. The food was delicious and we received such excellent service and attention from the friendly staff wherever we were. We look forward to coming back for our next vacation!

Just returned from a 7-day stay. This was our 4th or 5th trip to this resort. BEACH/POOL: As always, the most important thing is the beach and the ocean which were perfection. Of course, there are the early risers who play the "save the lounge chair" game, but one can still always find a spot with good shade which is key for my wife and me and sets this resort apart from many others. Absolutely no complaint on that score. We are not pool people (why go to the Caribbean for a pool?), but the pool is large and was maintained in pristine condition, so if that's your preference, do not hesitate. ROOM: We were in a "Superior" Room in Building 3. The room is OK, but the AC was not cold enough at times. An engineer was dispatched to address the matter in our absence, but he/she did nothing but turn up the ceiling fan. We were offered another room which we checked and was not an improvement, so we stayed put. It was comfortable enough. The bathroom design is curious. Shower has a half divider which allows water to flow into the sink area. Door opens and bangs into anyone who is on the toilet. However, it was adequate if a bit dated (mattress should be replaced). Water was hot when you needed it to be; shower (including hand-held attachment) was OK. Room Safe appeared to be new but malfunctioned once. A mechanic was sent immediately and it was fixed - good job. No coffee maker in the room at first - then they brought one when we asked for it. Housekeeping just OK. FOOD: We didn't go for any of the specialty restaurants and stuck with the buffet which, compared to prior trips, was disappointing. Three nights had sparse offerings for our taste, but there was always salad (salad bar is fantastic - plentiful with great variety and extremely fresh ingreidents). Desserts OK, and they had the usual ice cream assortment (not the greatest quality, but the Coconut is best). Breakfast good. Also, always a terrific bread selectiion. Due to Covid, we were often relegated to pointing to items and having them put on our plate (which for the desserts and salad items was rather silly and was often observed more in the breach anyway). Other items (meat and side dishes, e.g.) served to you by staff rather than self-service.). You need to wear a mask when entering and leaving the dining room and when going for selections. Other times, we did not need to wear a mask. Full table cloths have now been replaced with a strip of cloth placed down the middle of the table. It appears the chairs have also been replaced, and the new ones are not as comfortable. Service in the dining room was spotty, but a couple of bucks given here and there was greatly appreciated. DESK/CHECK-IN: Check-in was fairly efficient. We requested early check-in in advance, but were told it would not be possible, so we changed into our bathing suits and went to the beach until the room was ready. They held our bags in the office. No problem. A special thank you goes to Mr. FRANCISCO SANCHEZ of the hotel staff who was most responsive to our every concern and genuinely strived to make the trip enjoyable - a stellar Iberostar employee. Also, Ms. GRISY JOSEPH at the desk - very helpful (they printed our e-ticket for return (which was not required at the airport - the info was already in the DR immigration service computer anyway). Iberostar also provides a free Covid test which is required for return to the US. GROUNDS: As always, the tropical gardens were exquisitely maintained with the usual birds (including flamingos) in attendance - gorgeous. All in all, this is still a fine resort which, from all appearances, has had to grapple with problems engendered by Covid. Hopefully, as we come out of this, Hacienda Dominicus will step it up a bit and get back to pre-pandemic excellence.

My fiancé and I just stayed here in July 2021. Finding somewhere with good food was our top priority for the resort. All inclusives can get pretty bad with the food and my fiancé is particular about that. So we spent extra to come here due to the reviews saying the food was great. The food and availability was so bad we literally were starving and had to go out into town to eat. We couldn't get access to any of the fancy restaurants even several days in advance. Yet when we walked by them every night they were only 1/4 full. For most of the day the only food available is a little stand by the beach with nasty scary cheeseburgers and anchovy pizza as the only options. The drink choices are also not good. I enjoy drinking pretty much any kind of whiskey out there except scotch. All the bars in this place have five different brands (I'm not kidding, literally five) of scotch whiskey and zero whiskey outside of that. So all week I was starving and drinking liquor that I dislike. The property itself and the beach were amazing. This was probably one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to. If the food issues don't bother you I would highly recommend staying here just for how amazing this resort is to walk around and look at. The pool is also very good.
