Wonderful Family Accommodations

Juniperberrybec (Little Elm, Texas) on Jun 12, 2021

We had a wonderful time at Iberostar Punta Cana! We had a very nice room with 2 bedrooms for our family if 5. It was so helpful to have a place for just the kids. The pools are perfect temperature and not too crowded. The beach bar makes the best mojitos! Our favorite part is the reusable glass water containers and filtered water. So happy to be saving the world from the devastation of plastic. We highly recommend Iberostar!

Good Vacation courtesy of an upgrade!

Sunshine18126918326 (Staten Island, New York) on Jun 06, 2021

We stayed at this resort 5/29/21-6/4/21: Let's start off first by stating not all 5 of the Iberostar Resorts located in Punta Cana are 5 stars. This is key to know when booking. We originally booked at Iberostar Dominicana and that is definitely not a 5 star resort (3 stars at best) Affordable: yes, but not much more to brag about. The rooms were in need of an update. My bathroom consisted of a broken toilet, ceiling tiles were raised and the bathroom door did not lock. The room itself lacked dressers with decent drawers. My room safe was spotty when trying to lock it. Needless to say we HAD to upgrade to salvage our vacation. FYI be wary of when (time of year: holidays) you book because the resort (Dominicana) was packed with local residents who were smoking hookah at the pools as if it were a hookah lounge. Not a family friendly setting (in my opinion). Upgraded to Bavaro Suites which was like night and day. Villas were newly updated and the overall feel was that's where the tourists were staying. Staff was polite and attentive. The beaches: bummer. Apparently May-mid July the tides bring in seaweed. And when I say seaweed I mean mountains of them. We were able to get 2 days of beach swimming cause the beaches were clear on those days. The resort does have tractors removing the seaweed but it's almost like a losing battle with the tides. Food was very good. Concierge Marino was awesome. He took care of our needs and was super attentive to whatever we needed. Mind you he was stationed at the Dominicana location and still checked in on us after we upgraded. Pools were very big and clean. Note they are deep and some go as deep as over 6 feet so be cautious if you can't swim. A la carte dinners were very good. Not all restaurants open but that's due to COVID restrictions. You have to book your reservations for dinner in advance. We had an issue with booking after upgrading because some were overbooked, but the manager at guest services accomodated us. Air conditioning unit in our Villa kept automatically shutting off with no manual override (bummer). I had to wake up throughout the night to try and turn it back on. Location of villa becomes a factor. Try not to be centrally located because you will hear the theater at night which is loud! Hard to sleep through music when your ac is off. However, there are plenty of Villa's available so when booking your room request something further away from the theater. It may entail you walking more than you want but you can always request a golf cart to pick you up and escort you to wherever you need. The coral lab was very informative for my kids and the resort is very eco-friendly which we loved. Water stations at your disposal throughout the property to fill 2 large glass bottles. Rosa-entertainment was very friendly and kept the guests busy with a variety of games (darts, bingo, horseshoe, etc). Again I want to stress that not all of Iberostar's resorts are 5 stars and their online ratings should reflect such so people can book accordingly. I feel as if that's very misleading and can potentially make/break your vacation. Iberostar Punta Cana and Dominicana are adjacent to one another and share 2 large pools but would have to be rated 3 star resorts. That is courtesy of the grounds and staff. Bavaro Suites and Coral Reef are 4 and 4+ star resorts respectively. Hotel Grand Bavaro is their 5 star resort but it is for couples only! Beautiful grounds but again not a family resort.
