Puerto Plata Paradise!

Tabita K on Feb 24, 2024

We had a fabulous holiday at the ICD! It is a beautiful resort, absolutely spotless and the staff is nothing short of amazing! Despite online check-in and trying to pre-select our room via the website prior to arrival it turned out that either options didn't work for us. Perhaps it was because we booked through a travel agent via Sunwing instead of booking directly with Iberostar... I can't really say. However we did get assigned a second floor, garden view family suite in building 7, which worked out just fine, as per our original booking with the travel agent. Mercado, one of the the concierges, greatly assited us with getting someone to take our luggage and show us to our room and giving us really good information. The rooms were huge! We really enjoyed the space and the views. Yes, it was a bit damp smelling which is quite familiar to any sub-tropical and tropical country I have ever been to. Opening the balcony doors helped air it out in no time. The AC was working all the time, although it kinda creaked and squaked sometimes during the night. The toilet would also run intermittently for short bursts, but considering the resort plumbing was operating at max with a full house, it wasn't bad at all. My youngest was a little dissapointed that the housekeeping staff didn't leave towel art/animals as at other resorts we stayed at, other than that no complaints. I mean they probably have to mop up lots of sticky messes of people trying to figure out how to work the bottle opener in the mini fridge door properly (glass bottles of pop and you have to push the lid down not up) If you follow the FB Groups of this resort its a common trend! Mercado had us booked in at all three a la carte restaurants. It was ok, nothing too exciting to write about. Japanese was a lot of fun and plenty of food. Italian was rushed and slow at the same time, and the staff seemed to kinda forgot we were there... waited long stretches between courses and not much refills offered. Mexican restaurant (the guacamole was honestly the best!) but the house red wine was not to my liking. Staff once also seemed inattentive/distracted but at all the places despite the overall busy-ness they were always friendly, masking any frustrations or pressures they may have also faced. The buffet had gorgeous presentations of food, and delicious and plenty of selections. Sometimes repetative yes, but you can't try everything all at once so it left plenty of opportunities to try something else the next day. The staff was always amazing, and we had Generoso take very good care of us. At times, the bread was a bit stale and the toaster soooo slow. Some food was better than others but we never went hungry once. Bar staff everywhere was always on the go and steady working. Sometimes I wasn't sure if they even got breaks it was so busy, yet never saw them get mad, frustrated or discouraged. Kept working with a smile and a nod and that extra glint in their eyes when you enjoyed that very first sip! There was not very good coctail menus or what was available per se and I have had other guests asking me multiple times "oh whats that?" theres a QR code at the pool but i didnt bring my phone in the pool to check... the dry side of the pool bar/beach bar had seperate cocktail menus but then not all the staff knew what it said either. the app also didnt show cocktail menus. I guess it worked if you told them what you wanted/how to make it. However one time I did request a coco loco and the bartender went all over the resort to find all the ingredients. I felt pretty bad he had to go through all that trouble and didn't realise it wasnt a standard drink here, like it was at a Punta Cana resort we stayed at before. I am so sorry I cannot remember everyone's names but everyone working there deserves a raise though. The beach was also very nice, the vendors friendly and chatty luring you over to the market. Even after you may/may not have bought anything, they're always saying hi, fist bumping the kids and wanna know how things are going. We had a couple red flag days but even on yellow flag days the kids preferred the pool because they had a hard time distinguishing the black corral from seaweed sometimes. The current did trend to push us around a little bit even on calmer days. Just the ways of the ocean and your own comfort levels. Entertainment at night was kinda hit and miss, and the animation staff was quite amusing when we did happen to catch them around the resort. We unfortunately discovered the beach hut offering scuba/snorkelling excursions way too late and wished there was more awareness made to their availability etc. Mercado did a great job being our concierge and offered us the presentation to buy into the Iberostar membership. After declining, he was very courteous and I still wanna say that the staff is doing a great job doing their job. We had another concierge approach us again a few days later, and he tried his best as well, but we didn't go for it. We absolutely loved this resort, we love the brand, we will return to the Dominican and other Caribbean destinations, if and when we can afford it, but we enjoy other properties as well and seeing what they have to offer instead of returning to the same place/chain resort every year. Your holiday will be incredible and I hope everyone gets to enjoy it as well as much as we did. It wasn't perfect no, but it was still a fantastic week!
