Came here for 1 week and overall had a fantastic time! Staff were really friendly, great facilities, fantastic food and overall a really enjoyable experience. Having only ever stayed at 1 all inclusive resort previously which claimed to be 5*, but wasn't, this place really ticked the box. Food options were great, food choice was extensive and always fresh - had lobster, fillet steak, caviar, real high end! Staff were always smiling and friendly and really appreciated a tip of 1 or 2 dollars. Beach was good, yes you get a few people coming up to, but if you speak to them politely they remember you the next day and wont hassle you again and to be fair they don't really hassle you, they are just trying to earn a living. Rooms were good, tv had a good range of channels - only grip would be the sheets smelt a bit damp, but that's probably more to do with the climate. Staff helped me retrieve some belongings that I left on a bus after a tour, so big thumbs up there. Evening entertainment was really good, a different show each night.
We went on 3 trip - Puerta Plata half city tour (I wouldn't bother, instead just get a taxi to the cable car), Ocean world (highly recommend) and Outback safari (highly recommend).
Overall I would definitely come back here in the future and if the opportunity arises to visit another Iberostar resort elsewhere I will definitely look into it!
