Best way to phone the U.S. from Iberostar hacienda dominicus

A large group will be staying at the Iberostar Hacienda Dominicus in LaRomana in January. What is the best way for us to phone to the U.S. In the past I have purchased an AT&T prepaid card, but some hotels I have stayed at were able to connect to an AT&T operator, has anyone had any experience with this?

While we were at the IBHD last January we wanted to call our daughter on her birthday here in Vancouver - we checked with reception and they suggested to call directly from our room. The call was charged to our room and seemed very reasonable, about $5.00. Had no problems getting the call to go thorugh as we have had in the past (Mexico).

Thanks for the info, has anyone tried to use a prepaid AT&T phone card from the room. When travelling in the past, some hotels will not connect you to an AT&T operator and other's will. Just wondered if anyone had any experience with this while staying at the IHD. Thanks for any help!!

We did not make phone calls from down there... ,Make sure you open a hotmail account before you leave...What we did was open a hotmail account and give everyone we wanted to talk to at home a calling card for $10.00 and the e-mail address. We checked the mail daily and if we needed to talk to someone we told them to call us in the room with their calling card at a specific time.

This worked out very well and saved us tons of money that was better put to use on us.....(massages, spa stuff,pictures,day trips ect,ect).

happy holidays
