It's a great hotel with top notch service, second to none.Me and my wife had a great time.The food in the buffet was so good. It was better than some very nice restaurants here in States.Beach is very very nice. The entertainment on the beach start around 11 a. m. so we could sleep in and still catch water aerobics and dance class.Water is clean, so even when you in the water to your chest, you still can see your toes.Just great place to relax and have a good time.Or how local say "EXELLENTE"

Last April my husband and I visited this resort. We had previously enjoyed our visits to Iberostar resorts in Punta Cana but had felt they were a bit busy - so we decided to give anther location a try. What a wonderful decision that turned out to be! Our week was a blur of wonderful meals, days at the beach, nights enjoying the entertainment at the lounge, and the attentive service of the staff. Jonathan at the reception desk could not have been more helpful throughout our visit. We had such a wonderful stay that we are already booked for next April! Every time I am having a rough day I close my eyes and picture the resort - and then the day just seems better!

Room Tip: Buildings 2 and 3 are good choices

One week family vacation happened to be a lot of fun. By far this is one of the best resorts in DR.
Staff, grounds, room, food, entertainment… - everything A+. Building #3 was conveniently located to everything.
One little suggestion – internet in lobby should be free. Hourly charge? Common, it is 2013.

Room Tip: Building #3 was conveniently located to everything.

We have traveled all over the Caribbean as scuba divers. This resort was fabulous and the diving was so convenient. Everything about this vacation was great. The people, the room, the food, the drinks, the location, the entertainment. I would highly recommend this resort to anyone looking to visit the Dominican Republic. One suggestion, spend the extra money flying to La Romana or Punta Cana airports they are closer.

Room Tip: Stay in the middle building 1/2 way between entrance and beach.

After reading the reviews I decided on the Iberostar Hacienda . I must say I was not disappointed.
The trip from the airport took around 50 minutes on a good dual carriage way. Check in was quick,efficient and informative. The room was quite spacious , we are a family of three and the spare bed was not the usual put me up but another double. We had requested a pool view and were situated in block 3 which is in the centre of the hotel so equidistant between the main lobby and the beach.
Food - this was excellent in both the buffet and speciality dining ,plenty of choice both the fish and the meats were well prepared and tasteful. We chose to eat at the main beach restaurant for lunch this doubles up as the steak house at night , the quality and choice was much better than the standards I have experienced in several other resorts.There are barbecue, paella days at the other beach restaurant as well. Could not fault any of the speciality restaurant my personal preference was the steak house. I did find the staff at the colonial a bit pretentious, and arriving on time was told to wait outside with the door closed behind me , without an explanation or apology. A small point but the manager could have been more courteous. This did not detract from the experience . The Japanese and Mexican again were well worth the visit .
There are very few English at this location just the 7 of us in total on our flight, however this was probably a plus having been subjected in the past to embarrassing drunken behaviour and lack of manors from my compatriots .
The room was kept clean although the fridge was a bit hit and miss with the stocking of drinks, and having had two issues , one with the air con and the other with the television , despite 3 phone calls a trip to reception was never rectified, again no big deal but would have expected a better response.Service though in general was good particularly in the restaurants.
The beach was fantastic and the staff work tirelessly to keep clean and tidy , even to the extent of sieving the sand to remove debris. Snorkelling was reasonable saw rays and puffer fish at the reef.

I would certainly recommend this hotel for both families and couples probably quieter than the Punta Cana resorts but ideal for a beautiful location .

One remark again down to my own beliefs please discourage the use of animals for photographs .

Would return to this hotel due to location, grounds, food and staff.

Room Tip: Block 3 pool view - plenty of mosquito spray subject to Tiger Mosquitos which are day time

We have been to several resorts in the Dominican Republic but this is by far the best. We just got back September 1, 2013 after 8 days. This was by far my best vacation ever. Our room was kept spotless and they created beautiful swans/baskets with the towels daily. Little things like that add a nice touch and make a difference. The food was outstanding. There are two buffet restaurants which offer a wide variety food choices so that everyone can be satisfied. At the main buffet restaurant Novelis and Yazmin were great. At the smaller buffet restaurant Daniel and Wascar were the best. There are four choices of restaurants which you can reserve for dinner. All are great too but if you like a good steak make sure you reserve one evening at the steak house. If you want to smoke a cigar make sure you see Ingris. She has a good variety and a great personality to go. Alvin, the supervisor of all the bars was very engaging and made sure we had a good time….hint…hint. The beach water is crystal clear and warm. The pool is large and offers plenty of lounge chairs.
Most staff speak four languages. They work long hours but always greet you with the same friendly smile and energy whether its morning, noon or night. They are an amazing crew and make our decision for the next trip an easy one. We are going back!!! I highly recommend this resort.

Room Tip: Ask for building # 4. It's closer to the beach, pool and buffet. Its also the only building with...
