OMG it was Wonderful, Beautiful resort and rooms with Cold air conditioning ( rarity in the caribbean). WE loved Leonardo at the pool bar and the fun times of BINGO by the bar.
They had top shelf liquor such as Johnny walker, Baileys,stolichnaya etc ( I am not a big drinker so forget the names) the pool was fantastic , waist deep and always nice and warm, we loved the swimup bar you meet the nicest people from around the world and in your hometown too!All over is canopies with beds or chaise lounges to lay in and the beach is gorgeous and steps away from the pool. This is Not a LOUD resort. very relaxing but there is a club in the SHIP that is on property which is pretty cool you can dance or listen to music, they had a Party there on Saturday night. all restaurants and stores are on one side so easy to get to.Beautiful lobby with lobby bar and music , and the theatre has shows each night. They put their heart and soul into the show, but its not Broadway or Atlantic City, But entertaining it was, Beautiful costumes a little provacative dancing LOL and something to be said about singing lady gaga with a spanish accent... But we really did like the shows and the new found friends we met we would meet up at the show.
Rooms very nicely appointed, HUGE room with a king bed, a flat screen tv, FREE WIFI,a nice size desk and a beautiful Chaise Lounge, then the bathroom...There is a glass shower that is VERY large, and next to that the toilet in its own glass enclosure then the double sink and a 2 people Jacuzzi right at the window that has remote control shades because you are enclosed in the window glass on the deck REAL cool, bath salts ( the kind you put in bath) LOL and slippers are in there for you too. the Butler will come and have a bath drawn for you with wine/champagne and candles lit just by calling the number he gives you. the balcony is teak and has a table 2 chairs and a sofette out there, I have to say one morning I spent a few hours out there it was very nice.
the Food, for a all inclusive was very very good I have to say I am tired of eatting LOBSTER! My fave was the japanese, their show cooking was fun but the food wonderful the Lobster with pineapples was yummy, I am not a sushi eatter but there was many to chose from, I had the tempura Veggies and shrimp and it was so good, I had beef, and lobster and Jumbo shrimp for the dinner with the best fried rice.
We also ate at the Surf and turf, I asked for a Porterhouse with my lobster tail, they had rib eye strip and filet but I think the porterhouse and tail was a better choice cause my hubbys filet was small, but believe me you will not go hungry, their potatoes were so good. their dessert was the best of thbe best Chocolate hazelnut cake ,OH MY. Our first night we went to the Gourmet Restaurant- I do not remember what I had but it was just a OK restaurant to me.several went over to the steak house at Bavaro resort next door ( a iberostar property) Golf cart will take you there and to Dominicana and Punta Cana Iberostars free of charge as a GRAND guest you can use all of theirs THEY can NOT use yours.Everyone raved about that steak house.
Some that went over to the Dominicana (casino) said those 2 resorts were PACKED and ALOT of kids.
They said it was nice there but if you are looking for more Loud and hot spot its over there.
I was surprised that there was a lot of younger ( in 20's) people at our resort, it was a great mix of ages there 20- 70 I would say and we had alot of honeymooners.
My significant other went Deep sea fishing with "GONE FISHING" he caught a barracuda!
Ask me anything I be happy to answer!
