    this was our 5th time back at Iberostar Dominicana after a 4 year absence, where we went to other hotels and destinations, but none of them measured up to Iberostar, so we came home... Our arrival was just that, we came home, or as they said our familia is back. From the waiters putting down their trays to come and hug us, to the entertainment team saying welcome home my family, its a feeling i can't describe... Truly it is the people at this resort that keeps us coming back. Overall our trip was fantastic, and i would recommend this place to anyone. We did see on days a bit of a decline in the food compared to previous years, we were very disappointed in our favorite ala carte -- the steakhouse, or steaks weren't right, and it left a sour experience unfortunately -- that is the reason for the 4 star vs. 5 star. The buffets were good, but we did see some cutbacks, previously we saw lobster in the paella, and the lunch buffet at the beach always had yummy steak, and that wasn't there this year. but was the food bad, no -- what was there was primarily good, and no one should leave that resort starving, but from our previous experience i would say this was our only negative. The hotel has one of the best entertainment teams going, no resort can top it, and i am happy to say that i think this year was one of the best teams all round, they kept activities going, and made sure you were having a good time daily. Great leadership from Maria and Evelyn. big shout out to Mr Kool, Popeye, Black Diamond, Nixon for always checking and making sure we were good and having a good time. The hotel rooms we had no issues with, yes they are a little outdated, but the rooms were well kept, and very clean. The resort has changed to no straws, and instead of bottles of water you get 2 glass containers, and there are water stations around the resort to fill them.. they are very considerate of the environment, just the risk with the glass as one of our girls fell on a slippery floor and that broke the glass, so if we could get something a little less breakable. The pool area, and beach are well maintained, they have seaweed removal early in the morning, and by 7 am you wouldn't know that any had come in over night. Overall this hotel is perfect for the holiday where you aren't looking to pay high prices that a 5 star hotel has, but yet receive just as good or better treatment... plans are in the works again for 2021... or sooner.

    I loved this resort. I have traveled to about 15 different resorts and this was my favorite. The staff were so much fun and I enjoyed every minute with them. Especially Hamlet and Mayalin. The Amstar Rep Gerry was amazing too. The resort is laid out with food and drinks everywhere. It never felt over crowded or rushed. I did not want to leave. I spent 8 days here and at other resorts I was ready to leave on day 4 or 5. Highly recommend this resort!

    The hotel is cool! food, cleaning, beach, all is well. What I can say is that the animation composition was simply amazing. Chalas and Heidy, Star Camp animators, made my vacation unforgettable. fun and varied activities every day. I recommend to visit the hotel!

    Easy check in, although Amstar dropped us off at wrong resort, but Hector at reception took care of Amstars mistake. We got a great room and got into it quickly. Resort has lovely grounds, great beach with a lot of chaises. Food was good throughout the resort. Good service and can't wait to return again. Been here many many times!

    We went to Iberostar Dominicana for 10 nights around NYE and we wish we stayed for at least 10 more! Rooms are exceptionally clean and spacious, air conditioning works as expected and the balcony is sufficiently large and intimate. The grounds are fabulous and well maintained and the Christmas decorations were tastefully done. The food was abundant with many great options to choose from, including lobster for NYE, shrimps in many forms, squid and mussels, blue cheese, Iberic Ham and other premium ingredients. The bars were well stocked with good quality brands, i.e. Ballentine’s, Johnny Walker, Campari etc. and the cocktails were A+. The beach was excellent, very clean and plenty of sunbeds available, although the first row, next to the sea, got crowded very early (around 7am). Same thing goes for the pool area. This was our first stay with Iberostar but we will be definitely returning to one of their resorts very soon!
